Extra! Extra! Read all about it ...


The Earl of Fennington has a secret identity – he doubles as Mr. Pepperidge, editor of London's premiere gossip rag, The Tattler.  


While attending a garden party as the Earl, he meets and falls in love with Lady Emelia.  The attraction is instant and mutual, and a stolen kiss won’t cause any harm.  Will it?


But when Fennington asks permission to marry Emelia, her father denies him, requiring him instead to court Emelia for eight weeks.  Only allowed to see her once each week, Fennington devises a scheme to see more of her by posing as Mr. Pepperidge.  


Each week they meet in the park where Emelia provides him with the gossip she hears whilst paying calls in Mayfair parlors.  It’s that, or he'll print the scandalous news of her kiss with Fennington in The Tattler!


Meanwhile, Andrew Burroughs, the long lost love of Jane Vandermeer, Dowager Countess of Stoneleigh, returns to her life with a promise that he'll spend the rest of his life with her in London. The future suddenly looks bright, until The Tattler prints a report of Andrew kissing another woman.  Now hurt and angered, Jane sets out to discover the truth while Emelia is about to discover one of her own—all while a new Gossip Goddess shares news of philandering fake aristocrats.


With mistaken identities ruling the reports in The Tattler, is it any wonder the members of the ton love to hate gossip? Or do they really love The Gossip of an Earl? The Tattler knows!
