He is notorious.

Lord Simon Roxbury is a godsend to gossip columnists everywhere. This notorious rake has recently been caught in an extremely compromising position by none other than The London Weekly's Lady of Distinction. Rumor also has it that Lord R received an ultimatum: be wed or be penniless.

As A Lady of Distinction, Lady Julianna Somerset typically reports on other people's scandals, but soon she finds herself embroiled in a very public battle with an irate Lord Roxbury--one that leaves her reputation in tatters and her position at The Weekly on the line.

Together they're... respectable?

Review by Library Journal (2011-05-06)

Simon Sinclair, Viscount Roxbury, has been handed an ultimatum: marry within the month or lose his father's financial support. A much sought-after rake cannot limit himself to only one woman. But poverty has no attraction whatsoever. When The London Weekly's gossip columnist hints that Roxbury was seen in a passionate embrace with-gasp-a man, his vast array of possible brides disappears, along with society's invitations. Of course, it was most likely an actress dressed in male attire, but for Lady Julianna Somerset, a.k.a. the Lady of Distinction, it was a fabulous tidbit she couldn't resist, especially if it scooped her rival, The Man About Town.

Julianna knows a bit about rakes, but now she is a 21-year-old widow, and her own reputation is above reproach. Still, when she and Simon both find themselves rebuffed by the ton, a marriage of convenience may be their only recourse.

Verdict: Rodale's second tale of the unconventional Writing Girls (after A Groom of One's Own) pits our once-burned, forthright heroine against an unrepentant ladies man who finds her maddening and provoking yet manages to make her laugh. Rodale has pulled off another rapturous story of enterprising women and the men who try to tame them. The battle of the sexes has never been more fun. Highly recommended.
