Overview

This Regency lady has a dangerous secret.

It isn't Marianne Arnet's fault that her parents are reputed to be spies for Napoleon and have fled Regency England. Now the handsome and powerful Lord Whitestone is threatening to bar her from the upcoming London Season and deny her a longed-for chance to mingle in the literary world.

Lord Whitestone doesn't realise that Marianne is his secret correspondent, and that he's already half in love with her. Now she's determined to come to London, even if that means employing another identity.

After these two meet, there's love in the air. And danger as well.

[A Lady of Letters has] enough screwball-comedy touches to keep things prancing along cheerily.

I was thrilled to find another author, like Candice Hern, writing in the great tradition of the Heyer Regency.

Jacqueline Diamond pens a clever tale with the sworn enemy theme with great wit and engaging dialogue. Jeremy, Lord Whitestone is a gallant alpha hero and unpredictable Marianne never ceases to delight in this tale of secret letters, deception and deep passion. Plot twists and new revelations kept me turning the pages. A thoroughly entertaining read!! Charlene Sands

A Lady of Letters was a delightful and unusual romp unlike any Regency I'd ever read before. (And I've read hundreds.) I sped through it until the end, enjoying the story all the way. I can see I'll be working my way through the rest of Jacqueline Diamond's Regency romances.

Remarkable! A truly enjoyable read! This was the second of Jacque’s Regency Romance books that I read. From the very first chapter, I didn’t want to put it down. Again, Jacque does an amazing job of creating characters that you both love and loathe. Jacque does an excellent job of giving you a story that draws you in and just won’t let you go. The main character is both strong and cunning and won’t give up until the very end. The unjust judgment that she receives from her love and from society is justified in a heartwarming ending.
