Avon delights us with Joan Overfield's THE LEARNED LADY (4), a delicious battle of the sexes in which a beautiful bluestocking must take desperate measures to ensure continued funding of her investigations into the strange force of electricity. When faced with the need to make a public presentation of her work, the determined scientist cons a handsome stranger into posing as her official persona, little knowing that her handsome employee is the long lost heir to an earldom. Blending equal measures of intelligent wit and tender emotion, Ms. Overfield dishes up a simply dandy Regency tale.
