Description

Matilda Chapple is penniless, orphaned, and dependent on her uncle's grim charity--but she's found a way to escape: she'll write her way to financial freedom.

When Mattie pens a series of titillating short stories, she starts earning money ... and notoriety. Her secret is safe--until Waterloo veteran, Edward Kane, agrees to uncover the anonymous author's identity.

Can Mattie conceal the secret of her scandalous writings, or will Edward discover that the virginal spinster and the risqué authoress are one and the same person?

A Regency romance with a battle-scarred hero, an enterprising heroine, a gothic backdrop, and some of the worst food in England.

Review quote

"This book straight up touched my heart. It's been a while since I laughed, cried, despaired, and felt one with a character to this extent."

About Emily Larkin

Emily Larkin grew up in a house full of books-her mother was a librarian and her father a novelist-so perhaps it's not surprising that she became a writer.

She loves to travel and has lived in Sweden, backpacked in Europe and North America, and traveled overland in the Middle East, China, and North Africa. Her varied career includes stints as a field assistant in Antarctica and a waitress on the Isle of Skye.

Emily writes historical romances as Emily Larkin and fantasy novels as Emily Gee. Her websites are www.emilylarkin.com and www.emilygee.com.
