The widow Lady Somerset is the "Lady of Distinction," the woman behind a prominent gossip column. And when she reports that Lord Roxbury was seen in an inappropriate embrace with a man at the same time his father decides to cut him off unless he marries with in the next month, the sexual tension between between the two begins. Neither character is perfect but they are both genuine. Lord Roxbury is a rake but kind. Lady Somerset is a gossip but her column is a way she discovered to survive financially after her husband's death. It was a fun quick read and though a second book in a series, this reviewer hadn't read the first and did not feel lost, but I think I might now track down a copy of the first and I look forward to the next book.

The story flows nicely and I liked the plot. It is more of a PG romance as it doesn't have much in the way of steamy sex scenes but a good read.

A Tale of Two Lovers is Maya Rodale's second book in her smart and funny Writing Girls series, about four young women in Regency era London making a modest and independent living writing for the tabloid newspaper The London Weekly. Carolyn Morris is a wonderful narrator and the story is charming and very well-written. But the story is disappointing and unbelievable to me. I just can’t quite wrap my head around the fact that a smart woman would fall for a selfish and immature rake just like the first husband who broke her heart. Lady Juianna Somerset married once for love, and he disappointed her terribly with his gambling and incessant womanizing. When he died suddenly in a carriage accident, she vowed she would never give her heart again. She took a job as writer of the column, “A Lady of Distinction,” and one of her best targets is the notorious Lord Simon Roxbury. In the first book of the series, A Groom of One’s Own, he was rumored to be sleeping with two women at the same time without their ever knowing of their rivals. Scandalous! When Julianna comes upon Roxbury in a very compromising position, however, his reputation hangs precariously upon her poisoned pen. To complicate matters, Roxbury’s father has demanded that he marry immediately or he will be cut off financially. The problem now is that the scandal surrounding his latest escapade has scared off all potential brides in Polite Society. So when Roxbury recklessly creates a scandal involving Lady Julianna, now her reputation may be ruined…and she may lose her job and livelihood. Unless they marry. This is a sweet marriage of convenience story and it is charmingly told with witty banter, humorous situations, and heartfelt emotion. Julianna and Roxbury get to know each other after marriage and the initial attraction grows into love. But personally, I don’t see someone like Roxbury truly reforming, or someone as smart as Julianna thinking he ever will. But that’s why it’s fiction, right? Carolyn Morris reads very well but her voice for Roxbury is rather annoying. He sounds much older than I picture him and a bit on the pompous and conceited side. In other words, he’s not a sexy sounding hero. But I do like the voice for Julianna very much. Her vulnerability as well as her independence are clear and pleasant to listen to. Morris narrates all the books in the Writing Girls series and I look forward to listening to the final book, Seducing Mr. Knightly, when Annabelle finally gets the editor of The London Weekly to  notice her. I love Maya Rodale’s writing style and stories. They always make me laugh and smile. And this is an entertaining and lighthearted story, even if I don’t quite believe in this particular happily ever after.
