When Jack Digby, the Duke of Bedford, returns to England after 12 years at sea, he arrives to an unholy mess. Unfortunately, his scandalous reputation has preceeded him home and all of the newspapers have been abuzz about his exploits, making it harder to find a suitable, rich bride. Writing Girl Eliza Fielding was always beneath the ton’s notice, as the daughter of a printer and as a writer without a column or byline…until now. In her grandest scheme to date, she secures a position as housemaid to the Duke of Bedford. From this discrete vantage point, she is able to discover all sorts of details that no other reporter is privy to... For the first time, Eliza feels empowered, and recognized for her talents. Though she works all day at Jack’s maid, and stays up all night writing, she’s never felt more alive or happier.
Of course, she had to go and complicate everything by falling for her subject.
