Publisher's Summary

Fact: Drawing under a male pseudonym, Maggie is known as Lemarc. Her (his!) favorite object of ridicule: Simon Barrett, earl of Winchester. He's a rising star in Parliament - and a former confidant and love interest of Maggie's who believed a rumor that vexes her to this day.
Fiction: Maggie is the half-Irish harlot who seduced her best friend's husband on the eve of their wedding. She is to be feared and loathed, as she will lift her skirts for anything in breeches. Still crushed by Simon's betrayal, Maggie has no intention of letting the ton crush her as well. In fact Lemarc's cartoons have made Simon a laughingstock... but now it appears that Maggie may have been wrong about what happened years ago and that Simon has been secretly yearning for her since...forever. Could it be that the heart is mightier than the pen and the sword after all?

No where near a Harlot

This was a great second book in the series. The narrator is awesome for HR. This was a page turner for me. Real hard to put down, well worth the credit!!

I almost didn't buy this book...because of

a few bad reviews and how the hero won at everything and that the poor woman was so set upon by the hoards against her! BUT that is NOT how this story plays out. It again is a very wonderful unusual story and it definitely could happen in the time period! The heroin has her champions also and is able to fight her own battles very handily and in a witty way! Characters from the first book are very present in this book which keeps the wonderful friendships going and their good humor! Don't listen to the nay-sayers who have issues and give this book a try!
I AM SSSOOooo Happy I didn't pass this book by due to those reviews! I bought both the 1st and 2nd books at full price and I am glad to have done so!
