Summary

Millicent Blair is a small-town girl suddenly thrust into the role of London society's top gossip columnist. Soon, Chandler Preswick, the Earl of Dunraven, threatens to expose Millicent to his fellow aristocrats among the 'ton'. But first, Millicent and Chandler must contend with Mad Ton Thief, who has stolen the Earl's family heirloom.

Booklist Review

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
