Description

Named one of the Best Romances of November by the Washington Post!

Together they may create a scandal worthy of the stage, but can their love last after the final curtain falls...?

Successful playwright Maggie Delamere has no interest in the flirtations of noblemen like Cameron, Viscount Marwood. She once paid dearly for a moment of weakness...and vows to rebuff the wildly persistent—and irritatingly handsome—scoundrel at every turn. But when pressure to deliver a new play hampers her creativity, an invitation to use his country estate as a writer's retreat is too tempting to resist....

For years, Cam has admired Maggie's brilliant work and he can't pass up the opportunity to discover if the beautiful, mysterious playwright is as passionate and clever as the words that flow from her quill. He's never offered a lady his bed without being in it, but if it means loosening Maggie's pen—and her inhibitions—he'll do exactly that.

But soon Cam's plans for seduction become a fight for Maggie's heart. He's more than the scandalous, carefree rake society believes him to be...and she's the only woman who has ever noticed.

shortDescription

Eva Leigh's smart and sexy Wicked Quills of London series continues, as a fiery playwright meets her match in a rake whose talents are far from hidden . . .

Playwright Maggie Delamere shuts down aristocratic males with a mere flick of her razor-sharp quill. If only they were so easy to dispatch offstage—especially Cameron, Viscount Marwood. The impossibly charismatic man seems made to test her resistance. But when writer's block and an enemy from Maggie's past simultaneously strike, Cam makes an all-too-tempting proposal . . .

Cam has never offered a lady his bed without being in it . . . but Maggie needs a writer's retreat, and his manor is just the place. It's the least Cam can do for the brilliant woman who pens his favorite plays. Still, there's something more than social justice behind the relish which she skewers her "gentleman" characters. And as Maggie's pen and inhibitions loosen, Cam intends to unlock her secrets—one delicious...

        Leigh’s buoyant and artistic second Wicked Quills of London historical (after Forever Your Earl) is set in 1816 London. The only thing Cameron Chalton, Viscount of Marwood, loves more than the feel of a woman is the theater. He knows talent when he sees it, and it’s that talent, among other things, that draws him toward elusive playwright Margaret Delamere. Maggie can’t deny her attraction to the well-known rake, but she refuses to become another one of his playthings. Giving him her body would ultimately include her heart, and after being impregnated and abandoned by an aristocrat, she has no intention of traveling down that road again. When an extended case of writer’s block threatens her future and that of her troupe, she turns to Cameron for help. He gladly gives it, allowing Maggie to see a side of him that leaves her vulnerable to his charms. This lighthearted romp is full of rambunctious characters, witty repartee, and believable emotional development. Agent: Kevan Lyon, Marsal Lyon Agency.

        For a playwright, the worst ailment to suffer is writer's block, which is precisely what ails Maggie Delamere. She has two weeks to deliver the sequel to her successful burletta (brief comic opera) or she will be out of a job! The only sparks of creativity she has lately coincide with her being around the handsome theater patron, Lord Marwood. Could he be the muse who will save her? In a moment of generosity, Lord Marwood offers her his country estate as a writer's refuge. Living under the same roof, they are unable to fight their attraction, and soon embark on a wild affair. Maggie knows that they cannot be together. Society would never allow it; after all, she is the daughter of a merchant, and he is a viscount. But together, might they be strong enough to take the chance? Leigh (Forever Your Earl, 2015) continues her lively Wicked Quills of London series with this behind-the-scenes look at life in the theater in a romance with witty dialogue, heady passion, and strong female characters. Brava!(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)
