Further Observations of Lady Whistledown
Enoch, Hawkins, Ryan
brings romance readers four entertaining historical romances under
one cover. Each story is introduced by Lady Whistledown, a society

her book, The Duke and I. The columnist's introductions and
midstream comments show readers how it must have been back then,
when everything one did in society was noted; but in the case of
Lady Whistledown, her words of gossip tend to be words of wisdom

in the other's stories, as well as the same play, skating party
and Valentine's party.

for the Ton. A steamy love story proving that everything and everyone
