Well! It seems Mrs. Wells is determined to sensationalize. Here, for your viewing pleasure (or your horror and amazement, depending on how easily shocked you are), is a dramatic representation of THAT BOOK, aka THE DANGEROUS DUKE.
Mrs. Wells believes the man representing my dear Lyle resembles one Colin Firth, a thespian made famous by dragging himself out of a pond with a soaked shirt, displaying a rather beautiful manly physique. I should have liked to have seen that. [Would you also like to see said thespian's teeth knocked down his throat, ma'am? ~Ed.]
