In Maya Rodale, I find distinctive writing and devilishly good plots. A Tale of Two Lovers involves both to wicked extremes.

The widowed Lady Julianna Somerset was bequeathed virtually nothing in her husband’s will. To make ends meet, she is forced to take up a gossip column in The London Weekly, which runs against another gossip column in the archrival paper, The London Times. Lady Julianna is called the "Lady of Distinction" in her widely talked-about column. One night she stumbles upon a tryst that looks most certainly like two men in a compromising position. In effect, she has ruined the reputation of one Lord Roxbury while gaining notoriety as the Lady not to be missed.

Lord Roxbury’s social life is about to be ruined with a few well-placed words and the merest hint of suggestion in the local gossip column. After finding out the identity of the Lady of Distinction by accident, he stops at nothing to ruin her in revenge. In the middle of all this, Roxbury’s father believes the gossips and issues him an ultimatum. Either marry within a month’s time or be turned out the door with no inheritance. But how can he find a suitable wife when the ton believes he prefers the company of men? What’s a dandy to do?

Without even realizing it, Roxbury sets on a course that neither he nor Julianna can escape--a course of lies, betrayals, and above all, passion. A Tale of Two Lovers is a delightful read full of heated words and sexual tension. Maya Rodale is an author to watch; the climax is satisfaction indeed!
