Publisher's Summary

Waverley women pursue their aspirations no matter what the obstacle. They may marry if the cause seems to suit the purpose, or they may flirt until their heart is content - or, perhaps, until the gentleman who has proven to be the most elusive of all is clearly within reach. No matter what the obstacle, none is too big for a Waverley woman. These are books of dreams, lessons, fanciful thoughts, and, most of all, tales of girls grown now to women who won't settle for anything less than their full dream, impossible as it may seem at the outset.

By day Felicity champions women's rights, vowing to stay unmarried and true to the cause, but by night she dreams of romance. She is the secret author of a scandalous new novel - the tale of a lady "rake" and her passionate exploits. One titled gentleman has learned her identity and is growing more and more intrigued with this headstrong young woman. With the handsome marquis spurring her on, Felicity will soon learn that real life can be infinitely more interesting - and stranger - than fiction.

A fun listen

I love this entire series, such good laughs. This one was especially fun, because we finally get to solve the mystery of the girls parentage. The secondary characters were hilarious!

Fine

This was enjoyable for what it is, a lighthearted read. A background mystery keeps it somewhat intriguing.
