Evangeline Ramsey was such a delightful character in this book, masquerading as a man in London and trying to run a newspaper while caring for her seriously ill father. She was very intelligent, spunky and yet determined to do whatever it takes to survive and pay off her father‘s gambling debts. I loved how she took advantage of Ben’s bad behavior and used it to solidify the popularity of her newspaper’s gossip section, The London List.
Lord Benton Gray was your typical wealthy rake, who thought he could buy everyone with his money but never forgot his first love, Evangeline. The two of them together were perfect because they butted heads at every opportunity but had such great sexual chemistry that neither of them could keep their hands off each other. This book was hilarious, charming and fun with a fantastic cast of characters that will keep you entertained until the very last page. I can’t wait to read the next one in the series by Maggie Robinson because I am sure that it will be just as wonderful as this one.
The brainchild of Evangeline Ramsey, the London List features the latest gossip as well as blind advertisements. Every London resident, from the lowliest kitchen maid to the most exalted duchess, looks forward to Tuesday morning, when the newspaper publishes and speculation rises. Baron Benton Gray is sick of finding his latest peccadilloes printed in the London List - and shocked to find his old love, Evangeline Ramsey, at the helm. He buys the newspaper from her ailing father with the intention of shutting it down, only to face uproar from its eager readers. Forced to enlist Evie's aid to re-start the newspaper, he finds that putting the paper to bed becomes an unexpected pleasure for them both...unexpected plot twists, humour, and plenty of "romangst."
