Eva Leigh’s deliciously sexy Wicked Quills of London series continues as a Lady’s secret career writing erotic fiction is jeopardized by real-life romance . . .
In society circles she’s known as the Watching Wallflower—shy, quiet, and certainly never scandalous. Yet beneath Lady Sarah Frampton’s demure façade hides the mind of The Lady of Dubious Quality, author of the most titillating erotic fiction the ton has ever seen. Sarah knows discovery would lead to her ruin, but marriage—to a vicar, no less—could help protect her from slander. An especially tempting option when the clergyman in question is the handsome, intriguing Jeremy Cleland.
Tasked with unmasking London’s most scandalous author by his powerful family, Jeremy has no idea that his beautiful, innocent bride is the very woman he seeks to destroy. His mission must remain a secret, even from the new wife who stirs his deepest longings. Yet when the truth comes to light, Sarah and Jeremy’s newfound love will be tested. Will Sarah’s secret identity tear them apart or will the temptations of his wallflower wife prove too wicked to resist?
Leigh's intelligent and emotional third Wicked Quills of London Regency (after Scandal Takes the Stage) proves that even the most demure ladies can hide a sexy side. Lady Sarah Frampton, the Duke of Wakefield's daughter, has been nicknamed the Watching Wallflower. She must hide her identity as the Lady of Dubious Quality, the author of several shockingly erotic novels, to avoid scandal and shame to her family. When she meets Mr. Jeremy Cleland, a vicar and the son of an earl, she's instantly drawn to him. Unbeknownst to Sarah, Jeremy's father has demanded that he expose the identity of the Lady of Dubious Quality. Though Sarah and Jeremy's brief acquaintance results in marriage, Sarah's not sure that their newfound happiness can last if Jeremy learns her secret. Sarah is a refreshing heroine who insists on following her passion for writing. Jeremy is the perfect hero for her; despite his somewhat puritanical demeanor, he has a passionate heart and sees Sarah as a woman worth more than just her dowry. Leigh's latest is a thoughtful and sensuous romance.
