From Booklist: Millicent Blair doesn't mind helping her aunt Beatrice, who had been injured after tripping over her dog, but Millicent never expected her help would consist of writing a gossip column. Because Beatrice, who writes a society column under the pseudonym Lord Truefitt, can't get to the season's fashionable events she needs to attend to gather information, Millicent must go in her place and report back. On her very first outing, Millicent unwittingly attracts the attention of Chandler Preswick, the Earl of Dunraven, who spies Millicent writing notes on her dance card and mistakenly believes she is connected to the "Mad Ton Thief." Determined to uncover the identity of the thief, Chandler directs his romantic attentions toward Millicent, but his plan falters once Chandler realizes how easily distracted he becomes by the intriguingly different Millicent. The snippets from Lord Truefitt's gossip column that open each chapter add a charming touch to this light, witty Regency historical. John Charles Copyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved Book Description: Take one small-town girl turned high-society columnist. Add one aristocrat who plans to expose her. Stir in one mysterious thief. And you have... The most delicious Regency romp of the year!

Chandler, the Earl of Dunraven, is obsessed with finding the thief that stole a priceless heirloom from his home during a dinner party. He scans everyone at every party thereafter, determined to bring the thief to justice. His watchful eye brings to his attention a lovely young lady, Millicent Blair, who is new to the ton. Her suspicious actions makes Chandler wonder if she might have some of the answers he seeks.

This book starts out with the beginning of an excellent mystery, but quickly bogs down to pages and pages and pages of Chandler ruminating about why he is so attracted to Millicent, and Millicent determined not to fall for Chandler. This book is only slightly more engrossing than reciting to oneself, "He loves me. He loves me not," for hours on end. I was bored and started skimming almost immediately. By the time the author got back to the plot, I could care less about the resolution.

I have read other books by this author, and it is more of the same. Ms. Grey is excellent at devising plots that intrigue, but obviously incapable of fleshing out her ideas. This book, and all the books I have read by this author, is like a 4th grade reader, and then, disconcertingly, a sex scene is thrown in. Next comes a 4-5 page solving of the mystery, then a chapter on getting the couple together. The end. If one likes simple to the extreme, this is your book. I always come away from Ms. Grey's books feeling cheated and wondering why she has not developed as a writer.

I was enjoying this story up until about 3/4 of the way and it was downhill after that. It is meant to be a light and amusing tale but after the h did everything to stay pure the whole way through and right up until 5 mins before, she suddenly throws herself at the H and demands he make love to her. It was so ridiculous I went back a page or 2 just to check that I hadn't misunderstood her saying "No" she didn't want to sleep with him. Whatever! Then she runs off without any logic or explanation when he offers to marry her.

I finished the book simply because I only had a chapter or two left but the book was spoilt for me after that.

I liked the characters well enough. But it seemed the story dwelled over and over on the same issue and only moved forward to wrap up the ending.

Excellent Author!
I read the book in 2 days. I really liked everything by this author. Her Rogue series should be read first
