Baron Benton (Ben) Gray and Evangeline (Evie) Ramsey have a past. It's a past so powerful that neither one can give it up. Evie was Ben's first love-a love he thought would end in marriage. Evie had other ideas. After 10 long years, Ben finds Evie as the editor of a paper that harasses him every Tuesday. The harassment stems from the paper's publication of his "immoral" exploits that he flaunts in front of all of London. Ben wants Evie to stop publishing such nonsense but she refuses. Ben buys the paper to stop the publication of her stories but ends up running the paper.

Evie loves to dress as a man. It gives her freedom to do her job as an editor. It doesn't hurt the development of their renewed friendship that Ben finds Evie's "man dress" as irresistible. Their relationship ignites only after a few meetings. How these two work through their problems is a joy to behold. Both Ben and Evie love to squabble with each other but can't seem to let the other go.

Maggie Robinson is one of my favorite authors. Any book with her name (or the name Margaret Rowe) is an automatic buy for me. Simply said she creates great romance. This one is light, joyful, and full of fun. It's a true treat for the holidays. I think Maggie Robinson is one few authors that can consistently build a solid story while focusing on only the two main characters.

Evie Ramsay has lived her entire life either being really poor or living an okay life because of her father's gambling problem. Now her father has developed dementia and all that is left is a printer's shop that was won by her father. Still spurned by how things were left with Benton Gray, Evie decides to pose as a man and develops a gossip rag call The London List. Now all of Ben's salacious exploits are splatter across the pages. Ben decides to stop this from happening anymore and purchases the paper. To his dismay he finds out that 1. Evie is the one doing this and 2. that London is not happy that he is shutting the paper down. One of its biggest supporter is his own mother!

Now Evie and Ben must bind together and make this paper work. Evie hates that she has to be near Ben but that doesn't stop her from using her feminine ways to try to get him to leave the paper in her capable hands. Evie was Ben's first love and obviously that is not forgotten. He plans to make sure that they work extremely close together.

The reader never really knows why Evie hates/loves Ben the way she does and Ben apparently doesn't either. This is one part of the story that was confusing. It was never made clear were the hate comes from.

This was an enjoyable read and is like a historic version of what Gossip Girl would have been like during this time. This is a good light read with some sassy characters and steamy love scenes.

Lord Benton Gray has had it with the weekly gossip rag, The London List. He is always the front page fodder and everyone, including his own mother, eagerly awaits each new issue. Deciding to end this once and for all, he goes and confronts the owner, a Mr. Ramsey. But who should this Mr. Ramsey turn out to be but the one woman he proposed to years ago...Evangeline Ramsey. Evie is running the paper to help pay her ailing fathers medical bills and dressing as a man has proved to be most advantageous as people are more willing to speak to a man over a woman and take her seriously. Seeing the man she made a foolish mistake with and ruined her future as a result stems her anger and frustration but the final straw is when Ben goes behind her back and buys the paper from her father! Sparks reignite, tempers flare and their past attraction still burns strong. Together, Evie shows Ben the ropes of running a paper and the side that the public doesn't seem much, the caring and helping of all the desperate, poor people who need so much yet can not afford the rates to advertise. Will Ben be able to truly turn over a new leaf and leave his rakish ways behind him and help Evie with all the issues with the paper and find what they thought they had lost all those years ago?

This book had everything I have come to expect from Maggie Robinson; heart, humor and heat. The heat starts off rather quickly, with Evie and Ben already having a torrid affair in the past but then the sexual tension sets in and just keeps building. The humor was just wonderful. Our couple are constantly trying to prove who is the man and should wear the pants (literally)...Ben wants Evie to wear dresses and be a female and take care of her while Evie wants to continue doing her job and the pants suit her just fine.

Format: Paperback
Maggie Robinson's newest release "Lord Gray's List" it the first installment in her new List series. Set in 1820 London, Maggie pens a highly entertaining tale with characters that promise to keep you amused throughout! Baron Benton Alexander Dunbarton Gray is a Scottish born Lord, but upon his father's early demise, had grown up in London with his English mother rather than in the crumbling old Castle Gray, his heritage, a circumstance he is grateful for daily. However, being a titled man of substance, as of late he is not feeling very grateful to be among those privileged to do as they please. For Benton Gray has more often then not lately found himself the subject of the locally published and in his mind (scandalous publication), known by all as The London List. The highly anticipated arrival of each Tuesday morning's edition it seems, is lucky enough to find itself in the hands of many a member of the Ton or servant alike. To Ben's chagrin, he discovers his household alone supports seven subscriptions, his mother the paper's biggest champion. The latest copy has Ben in an uproar as once again splashed across the headline is his latest romantic encounter. The constant expunging of his character seems to carry the ring of personal vendetta. Determined to bring an end the attention so exclusively given him, Ben sets out to seek the one responsible. Little does Ben know he is in for a battle the likes of which compare to something found within the confines of Gentleman Jackson's; Evangeline Ramsay.
