Extra! Extra! Read all about it …

The Earl of Fennington has a secret identity – he doubles as Mr. Pepperidge, editor of London’s premiere gossip rag, The Tattler.

While attending a garden party as the Earl, he meets and falls in love with Lady Emelia.  The attraction is instant and mutual, and a stolen kiss won’t cause any harm.  Will it?

But when Fennington asks permission to marry Emelia, her father denies him, requiring him instead to court Emelia for eight weeks.  Only allowed to see her once each week, Fennington devises a scheme to see more of her by posing as Mr. Pepperidge.

Each week they meet in the park where Emelia provides him with the gossip she hears whilst paying calls in Mayfair parlors.  It’s that, or he’ll print the scandalous news of her kiss with Fennington in The Tattler!

Meanwhile, Andrew Burroughs, the long lost love of Jane Vandermeer, Dowager Countess of Stoneleigh, returns to her life with a promise that he’ll spend the rest of his life with her in London. The future suddenly looks bright, until The Tattler prints a report of Andrew kissing another woman.  Now hurt and angered, Jane sets out to discover the truth while Emelia is about to discover one of her own—all while a new Gossip Goddess shares news of philandering fake aristocrats.

With mistaken identities ruling the reports in The Tattler, is it any wonder the members of the ton love to hate gossip? Or do they really love The Gossip of an Earl? The Tattler knows!

Excerpt:

“I have no intention of leaving you alone tonight.”

Pulled from her reverie by the odd statement, Jane stared at Andrew. “Oh?” was all she could think to say.

Andrew allowed a chuckle. “I do hope I haven’t scandalized you, my sweeting.”

My sweeting.

Goodness, they had just become reacquainted after eighteen years, and he was already using an endearment only suitable for couples who were …

Lovers.

Jane inhaled sharply. Is that what Andrew Burroughs intended? To make her his mistress? To offer carte blanche?

“Oh, Christ, I have scandalized you,” he said with a roll of his eyes. He straightened in the squabs and gave a quick shake of his head. “I apologize, my lady. It’s not my intention to take liberties, nor to …”

“I am rather flattered, actually,” Jane interrupted with a shake of her head. “No one has ever called me ‘sweeting’. Not even my husband, but then I suppose you already knew that.” This last was said in a quieter voice, as if she realized her place in her husband’s life was well known to others.

How many women in the ton knew of her despair at being left alone for months at a time as her late husband spent all his time away from London? He was only ever at their mansion in Westminster when Parliament was in session, and even then, he spent most of the time when he wasn’t in the House of Lords at his club, Boodles.

“I did not,” Andrew said with a shake of his head. He sighed and was about to say something else when the coach suddenly halted.
