    I read the Girl Bachelor series and enjoyed each book.  Sexy, humorous and good stories.  I liked the fact that these books were romances; no murders, fighting, spies, etc.  Nice, enjoyable books.  Recommend highly.

    Must read!

    Daisy Merrick is a secretary, but what she really wants to be is a writer. Her practical older sister Lucy, however, has decided that making a living as a writer is just not dependable, so Daisy is working at temp jobs. Well, at least they're temp jobs for Daisy--since she always seems to lose the jobs shortly after she loses her temper and unwisely tells her employers just what they *don't* want to hear.

    After losing her latest secretarial job, Daisy decides she's not going home to her sister until she has a new place of employment. She stops at the publishing house of a family friend, and before she knows it she has a job reviewing theater for a local paper and a ticket to see the opening night performance of the latest effort by one of her favorite authors, Sebastian Grant. Life should be wonderful...and it is. The play, however, is awful. Beyond awful. apallingly awful. Daisy writes a scathing review of it, bemoaning that Grant's best works are a decade in the past and that he is now nothing better than a "second-rate Oscar Wilde".

    A review that Sebastian reads, and is incensed by. Is it the review itself, or the truth it contains that angers him the most, though? Sebastian is sure that the reviewer is right--his best work is behind him. He'll never write anything worthwhile again. As he bursts into his editor's office to complain, though--the editor who coincidentially owns the newspaper that published the review--he comes face-to-face with the reviewer herself, and the meeting does *not* go well. Before he knows it, his editor has been reassigned--and it's Daisy. She is supposed to make sure his contractual obligations to write a novel (now three years overdue) are fulfilled, and he is supposed to help her to polish up her own writing for publication. Can she do it? What, if anything, can inspire Sebastian to write--and write well--again?

    This book is the fourth in Guhrke's "Bachelor-Girl" series, though it is the first book I've read by this author. I'm definitely going to be reading the first three--and soon!

    This is an amusing late Victorian romance starring two likeable enemy combatants in a gender war

    In 1896 London, Daisy Merrick is fired from her typist job for her unbecoming behavior when the boss tried to fondle her and she refused him. Soon afterward, Social Gazette critic George Lindsay writes a sarcastic mocking review of Sebastian Grant's new play calling it "rubbish". The duke is irate and goes after Lindsay who called him "a second rate Oscar Wilde" only to learn Lindsay is Daisy Merrick and his publisher demands he work with her on completing a novel that is past deadline. She agrees under the condition her book be considered for release too.

    Sebastian tries to hide from Daisy that since he stopped using opiates, he suffers from writer's block. He decides to seduce her, which he hopes will lead to his writing again. However, his plan is to use her as a one-time muse before ending their partnership. However, though they argue like cats and dogs they fall in love, but will he realize she is his permanent muse.

    This is an amusing late Victorian romance starring two likeable enemy combatants in a gender war mindful of the 1930s screwball comedies. The story line is a series of back and forth bantering as Daisy becomes the new cocaine for Sebastian. Fans who enjoy a humorous historical romance will want to read the war of the authors.
