My Thoughts:
Clara's sister owns a newspaper and now when Irene is on her honeymoon it is Clara that has to care for the paper. And write a advice column! Not the easiest thing for shy wallflower. Poor Clara, Irene was meant to be back and writing the column by now.

Yes Clara. A bit of a wallflower who may start stammering when a handsome men approaches. But sweet, smart and utterly useless at giving other advice.

Rex, a rogue that is not really a rogue. Against marriage cos of his parents. Cut of by his dad and living on his aunt's allowance. But it all hasa  reason and I felt that yes maybe he was actually too kind. Sometimes people needs to learn a lesson. Handsome as the devil too.

A bloody nose brings them together. He hates newsrags. She thinks he can shove his advice up his *beeP* And oh you two! Working close together and pretending things always lead to love! Will these rakes never learn! ;)

Conclusion:
Stolen kisses. Banter and falling in love. There is never any real drama. The drama is more how these two are so different and must learn that love will always win.

Fun times!

Narrator
Well, yes, Justine Eyre again. I do enjoy her voice when it comes to historical romance. She does the men and women so well in them. She brings me to that era.

Story
Dear Lady Truelove,

I am a girl of noble family, but I am painfully shy, especially in my encounters with those of the opposite sex . . . 

For Clara Deverill, standing in for the real Lady Truelove means dispensing advice on problems she herself has never managed to overcome. There’s nothing for it but to retreat to a tearoom and hope inspiration strikes between scones. It doesn’t—until Clara overhears a rake waxing eloquent on the art of “honorable” jilting. The cad may look like an Adonis, but he’s about to find himself on the wrong side of Lady Truelove.

Rex Galbraith is an heir with no plans to produce a spare. He flirts with the minimum number of eligible young ladies to humor his matchmaking aunt, but Clara is the first to ever catch his roving eye. When he realizes that Clara—as Lady Truelove—has used his advice as newspaper fodder, he’s infuriated. But when he’s forced into a secret alliance with her, he realizes he’s got a much bigger problem—because Clara is upending everything Rex thought he knew about women—and about himself. . . .

  7. I think I've seen contemporary romance with a similar storyline with a shy girl wriring a newspaper advice column and all that, glad the premise also works for a historical :P
