The Battling Bluestocking
Will Jessica Sutton-Drew win the argument, or will she win his heart?
Strong-willed and intelligent, Miss Jessica Sutton-Drew enjoys championing worthy causes such as women’s independence, much like her formidable aunt, Susan Peele, London’s most daunting bluestocking, and regardless of other relatives’ protests against such unladylike behavior. But Miss Sutton-Drew may have met her match in Sir Brian Gregory, a shockingly wealthy mine owner and local magistrate, who is also handsome, brilliant, and charming. Convinced that Sir Brian is guilty of any number of social injustices, Jessica resists his enticing flattery and flirtation. But can she cease her battling ways long enough to listen to her heart? Or will oncoming scandal ruin everything before she recognizes the truth?
