Overview

Exclusive—"tattooed duke"
finds fortune in ruins!

Breaking news, scandal fans:

You thought you knew the dangerous Duke of Wycliff, London's globe-trotting adventure addict. Here's what you don't know: he's penniless. Sebastian Digby's dukely lifestyle is over forever unless he finds a rich bride. But thanks to The London Weekly, everyone knows better than to tangle with this lothario. Besides (as one writer can testify), it seems that Sebastian has been unable to keep his hands off his own lowly housemaid . . .

And that's a problem. A big one.

Because that housemaid just happens to be me. Eliza Fielding. The same undercover Writing Girl who's been exposing the Duke's most intimate secrets to the world. And now I've gone and complicated everything by falling in love with him. Passion and deception have never been so delicious, but now the truth could destroy everything. This is more than a conflict of interest. It's a seduction where love itself hangs in the balance.

    Is there any guilt associated with this deception?

    Sebastian Digby, the Duke of Wycliff has been branded a wonderlust man who inherits a title he does not deserve. Sebastian’s reputation is one built on rumor and innuendo with very little fact involved. When he returns to London to take control of his holdings Sebastian hires servants, one it seems is not wh0 they claim to be.

    Eliza Fielding is secretly a writer for a scandal sheet who has figured out how to get the best information on Sebastian, work in his home. Sebastian is going to make for a world class story especially with all that wonderful ink he has all over his gorgeous body. Wait Eliza is here to get the scoop on her competition right, not have a relationship with Sebastian. Eliza continues her ruse and is even able to befriend Sebastian all the while using the bits and pieces she comes across to fill her articles with tantalizing tidbits.

    The stories unfold, Sebastian becomes more notorious, and Eliza more smitten with each passing day. With the adventurer in him still calling Sebastian is finding himself torn by duty and called away to seek new treasures. Even with all his conflicts the one piece he is most at peace with is Eliza, feelings he never thought to have with anyone are coming to the surface and Sebastian is not sure what to do with them. Sebastian may know her secrets but are they worth telling if it means he might lose her?

    Secrets can be told in many different ways but Maya Rodale has written them so you feel as if you are part of the whispered exchange.

    A Wonderful Addition to the Writing Girls Series!

    This one got off to a bit of a slow start for me, but about, oh, 1/3 of the way in, things really started to pick up. Once things started to pick up, however, I ended up staying up all night to finish it, because I couldn’t stand the thought of putting it down even for a few hours. I quickly fell in love with Sebastian and was on the edge of my seat waiting for an elegant solution to Eliza’s dilemma. While I was a little disappointed with the number of villains, I have to admit that having several antagonists certainly kept the pace right where it needed to be.

    I’m also thrilled that the next book is going to be Knightly’s! *fangirls all over the place for a moment*

    Recommended for fans of deliciously reformed rakes, of ruthless heroines trying to balance between her ambitions and her conscience, and of seemingly impossible love finding a way.

    An incredibly solid 4.5/5 Stars.

    I just finished reading book (#3 Writing Girls series) of a unconventional tattooed Duke. Of course, the man in the spotlight is Sebastian Digby, the Duke of Wycliff. He is dangerous and handsome adventurer who needs to come up with money to stake his next big voyage. He is broke and has come home to find a wealthy bride. So when he find's out that a newspaper called The London Weekly is writing items that hinder his bride hunting, he's outraged. Of course, he doesn't know that his newest maid, Eliza, is a Writing Girl who is working undercover for said newspaper. Sebastian only sees a beautiful and sexy maid who he can't stop lusting after because he is from a long line of "Wicked Wycliffs". Will Sebastian and Eliza get their "happy every after"? You will have to read to find out. Thank you Ms Rodale for another great love story.

    This is the first book I have read by this author. It's book three in the Writing Girl Series and I absolutely loved it. Eliza gets herself hired on as a maid and carefully extracts scandalous stories about the duke all while slowly falling in love with him. He too is slowly falling in love with her though he doesn't realize it at first especially with all the financial trouble he is dealing with. He learns two of her devastating secrets after she was attacked. Furious, confused, and feeling betrayed but still in love he has choices to make. 

    This was such a fun read and I loved every minute of it. I can't wait to read more from this author and I highly recommend this book to all.
