What could be more important than a lady's reputation?

Although initially alarmed by their unconventional ways, strait-laced Harry Bishop is content in the service of Lord Shad and his family. But when he is sent to London to rescue Shad's wayward relation from debt and self-destruction, he also has the dubious honor of dealing with the man's illicit lover - troublesome actress Sophie Wallace.

A man of dignity and decorum, Mr Bishop is desperate to disassociate himself from the scandalous Sophie. Unfortunately, avoiding her proves harder than he could ever have imagined and soon she's causing him all kinds of bother...

Praise For Mr. Bishop and the Actress

"The saga of an Austen-era bachelorette puts the lie to Regency delicacy in this fun romantic spoof . . . Mullany's saucy narrator and bubbly tone . . . should entice romance readers who'd otherwise sidestep the flurry of petticoats."  Publishers Weekly on The Rules of Gentility
