Passion. Intrigue. Love. “This is a perfect historical romance” – Sunday Times Bestselling Author Sarah Morgan “The gorgeous characters and the wit and charm made this a book I simply didn’t want to put down. I was willing Eliza and Sebastian on to their fairytale happy ending!” – Nicola Cornick

London’s high society loves nothing more than a scandal. And when the personal secretary of the visiting Prince Sebastian of Alucia is found murdered, it’s all anyone can talk about, including Eliza Tricklebank. Her unapologetic gossip gazette has benefited from an anonymous tip off about the crime, forcing Sebastian to ask for her help in his quest to find his friend’s killer.

With a trade deal on the line and mounting pressure to secure a noble bride, there’s nothing more dangerous than a prince socialising with a commoner. Sebastian finds Eliza’s contrary manner as frustrating as it is seductive, but they’ll have to work together if they’re going to catch the culprit. And soon, as temptation becomes harder to ignore, it’s the prince who’ll have to decide what comes first—his country or his heart.

Well, what can we say about this book? Very different from any other historical book and I love the Gazette – and the chaotic household of the Judge and the sisters, and all their escapades.

Of course, there is also a Prince and a Trade Deal, else how would there be a Princess? But a Prince can’t marry a Commoner especially one that has been outed as in Society as being deceived badly by the man she thought was her fiancée. But they didn’t quite know just how far she had gone with her fiancée or matters would have been even worse.

Eliza has a strange habit for women of that period – she repairs clocks. Which is a very fiddly task indeed and she has courage and a certain amount of bravado as she believes she is no longer a marriage prospect which enables her to be rather more cavalier about her behaviour.

I liked these sisters and I am sure that there will be more books about them, but starting with Eliza was good. Nicely written with lots of plots and some twists and fun. And some reality as to how people would have really lived if they were middle-class rather than society
