The Love Letter:

From the file of love letters that were never sent:
The Duke of Wycliff to Miss Eliza Fielding

From the assorted papers found behind that locked door in Wycliff House...


I ought to write to you about dusting the library or polishing the crystals in the second floor sconces, or making the bed in the master chamber after... I ought not write to you at all.

But I am a Wicked Wycliff and thus cannot be bothered with what I should or shouldn’t do. I want what I want and I let nothing stand in my way. Not even you and your secrets dear Eliza.

I have traveled round the world. Of all the places I have been and all the places I have seen, none have intrigued me, transfixed me, obsessed me as you. Of all the people in London and the world over, you, my housemaid, are the one who understands me best. Unless you are not a housemaid after all?

Tempted, tortured, yours,


Check out Sebastian and Eliza's love story in: 
Coming in February 28th, 2012

Breaking news, scandal fans! 
You thought you knew the dangerous Duke of Wycliff, London’s globe-trotting adventure addict. Here’s what you don’t know: he’s penniless. Sebastian Digby’s dukely lifestyle is over forever unless he finds a rich bride. But thanks to The London Weekly, everyone knows better than to tangle with this lothario. Besides (as one writer can testify), it seems that Sebastian has been unable to keep his hands of his own lowly housemaid…

And that’s a problem. A big one. 
Because that housemaid just happens to be me. Eliza Fielding. The same undercover Writing Girl who’s been exposing the Duke’s most intimate secrets to the world. And now I’ve gone and complicated everything by falling love with him. Passion and deception have never been so delicious, but now the truth could destroy everything. This is more than a conflict of interest. It’s a seduction where love itself hangs in the balance.

  16. I love all of Maya's books but have absolutely fallen in love with The Writing Girls! Since I have a son with tattos I'm dying to find out what made Sebastian get his! I loved both letters and can't wait to find out what the reaction was when they were read!

  17. I loved the letter. Is she just a housemaid. I know he will find out.. =)

  19. This books sounds wonderful. Can't wait to read it.

  20. Sebastian clearly knows what he wants.

  22. I love this letter! What a naughty duke!

  23. I'm curious about this story, and I love that the heroine is a journalist, how rare!

  24. OOhhh, what's he going to do when he finds out what she has been up to? He sounds like a little bit of a bad boy. ;)
