Library JournalInfuriated when she realizes that her publisher employer, Viscount Harrison Robert Marlowe, has been rejecting her manuscripts without reading them, aspiring writer and most efficient secretary Emmaline Dove resigns her post and is immediately hired to write a pseudonymous weekly etiquette column (as Mrs. Bartleby) for the widely read Social Gazette. Emma is thrilled until she learns that Harry has acquired the Gazetteand is once again her boss. Magnetic, appealing characters, delicious sexual sparring, and witty comments from The Bachelor's Guide(Lord Marlowe) and Advice to Girl Bachelors(Mrs. Bartleby) add sparkle to this thoroughly delightful Victorian that nicely touches on the social inequities of the times.
