As a viscount's daughter, vivacious Coralee Whitmore is perfectly placed to write about London's elite in the outspoken ladies' gazette Heart to Heart. But beneath her fashionable exterior beats the heart of a serious journalist.
So when her sister's death is dismissed as suicide, Corrie vows to uncover the truth, suspecting the notorious Earl of Tremaine was Laurel's lover and the father of her illegitimate child. Corrie infiltrates Castle Tremaine posing as a wide-eyed country relation whose charming figure-and reduced circumstances-make her irresistible to the confirmed scoundrel. But Corrie finds the earl is not all he seems... nor is she immune to his charms, however much she despises his caddish ways.
Far from a society column, Corrie's life soon reads more like one of Mr. Dickens's serials. But the danger of her ruse is hardly fictional: someone is bent on ensuring Corrie's questions go unanswered-and unasked.
Contains mature themes.

"Martin's Victorian is blessed with a strong plot and a rich supporting cast of family and friends, making this fun, full romance a surefire crowd pleaser." (Publishers Weekly)
This was a very good book and narration. I really enjoyed it a lot. I liked Coralee, she was smart, beautiful and had spunk. I liked the Earl too. They had some good chemistry together and made a great match. I did enjoy this book more than the first one and am glad I moved on with the series.
The story line and plot was good. I really liked how she infiltrated his home and did some spying. There was a good mystery here and a couple twists and turns that made this story even more exciting. There was a lot of great dialogue throughout the entire book. I was easy to follow along and flowed very well.
As for the narration, it was great. Beverly Crick gets better and better. She does a great job on the men's voices and does accents very well. Everyone gets their own distinct voice and she reads with emotion.
I am moving on to the third book in this series.
