This book was a total accident for me. I needed one more book at the book store and they were out of the other two books I had on my list.
A VERY Good read! 1-Nighter for me! I've only read one or two other BDS books, but this is the first that would make me pick up another one. =) It had a nice spin on the 'Rogue' and 'Lady' story and a very nice surprise I didn't see coming in the story. Enjoy!
Lady Julia is a fallen woman, a headmistress of a charity school. She has a young son but no husband and is a social outcase. She's the anonymous author of "The Rogue Report," a newsletter that she mails out to the young women of society. Her newsletter exposes the gentlemen of society who are the truest rogues. One of the worst rogues in her newsletter is the Earl of Rutledge who loses his fiance due to Lady Julia's story about him in the newsletter, and the earl is out for revenge.......
Most people know me only as the headmistress of a charity schoo. Having a son but no husband has made me a social outcast, which is no great inconvenience since I despise Society, especially those "gentlemen' who seduce naive young women. My contempt for such knaves leads us to Secret the First: I am the anonymous author of The Rogue Report, a newsletter that exposes these scoundrels and their exploits.
My busy life leaves no time for romance, or so one might think. This brings us to Secret the Second: I have lately carried on a flirtation with the school's new mathematics professor. Mr. William Jackman is altogether too charming and mysterious for anyone's good, particularly mine. Thought I'm tempted to indulge my desires, I cannot help but wonder if my darling "Jack" hides secrets, too.
You see, not everyone appreciates The Rogue Report, and at least one of its subjects is out for revenge. Is Jack bent on protecting me, or is he really the villain who seeks my ruin? Is it possible that I've fallen in love with the most notorious rogue of them all?
