Eva Leigh's irresistible new series introduces the Wicked Quills of London: a group of bold, brilliant female writers whose spirited allure is beyond seductive....
Eleanor Hawke loves a good scandal. And readers of her successful gossip rag live for the exploits of her favorite subject: Daniel Balfour, the notorious earl of Ashford. So when the earl himself marches into her office and invites her to experience his illicit pursuits firsthand, Eleanor is stunned. Gambling hells, phaeton races, masquerades.... What more could a scandal writer want than a secret look into the life of this devilishly handsome rake?
Daniel has secrets, and if The Hawk's Eye gets wind of them, a man's life could be at stake. And what better way to distract a gossip than by feeding her the scandal she desperately craves? But Daniel never expected the sharp mind and biting wit of the beautiful writer, and their desire for each other threatens even his best-laid plans.
But when Eleanor learns the truth of his deception, Daniel will do anything to prove a romance between a commoner and an earl could really last forever.

Great start to a new series

It's really a shame...
It was a good story, but the narration killed it.
The declarations of love.
I think she tried really hard, but just could not avoid sounding stilted. The worst parts were the narrative sections, where the phasing and the intonations were so stiff and awkward that it was like listening to nails on a chalkboard. I kept listening, thinking that she would loosen up and get more natural as she got into the book more, but it didn't happen. It's such a shame because it colored the whole experience, negatively.
The story was interesting, although the heroine was so modern in her sensibilities that it seemed unrealistic, but still.... it was of interest.
If this book and this series is to have a chance, it needs to be re-released with a really good and spunky narration.
