Eloisa James, New York Times bestselling romance author of When Beauty Tamed the Beast, puts a chilly, powerful duke in bed with an intelligent, beautiful woman…his wife. In name, anyway.

No man can resist Jemma's sensuous allure . . . Except her own husband!

Wedding bells celebrating the arranged marriage between the lovely Duchess of Beaumont and her staid, imperturbable duke had scarcely fallen silent when a shocking discovery sent Jemma running from the ducal mansion. For the next nine years she cavorted abroad, creating one delicious scandal after another (if one is to believe the rumors).

Elijah, Duke of Beaumont, did believe those rumors.

But the handsome duke needs an heir, so he summons his seductive wife home. Jemma laughs at Elijah's cool eyes and icy heart—but to her secret shock, she doesn't share his feelings. In fact, she wants the impossible: her husband's heart at her feet.

But what manner of seduction will make a man fall desperately in love . . . with his own wife?

Eloisa James is aUSA TodayandNew York Timesbestselling author and professor of English literature, who lives with her family in New York but can sometimes be found in Paris or Italy. (Her husband is an honest-to-goodness Italian knight!) Eloisa's website offers short stories, extra chapters, and even a guide to shopping in Florence.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3.5 stars I have been waiting for Jemma and Elijah's book from the very beginning of this series. While I enjoyed their story, I think that their story should have taken place maybe right after the first book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Touching I've been reading about Jemma and Elijah's relationship from the past few books, and I ran to the bookstore for this book as I was already addicted to their little moments. There were some slow parts in the beginning of the book, but it just made certain moments all the more beautiful. I found Jemma's wooing quite silly, but I loved how it resulted in Elijah showing some temper. I'm glad that there was a reasonable reason for why Elijah had a mistress, but I still think that not chasing after Jemma was his biggest fault. I recommend this series to every romance addict out there, and I will be buying the final book in the future. My review a few months later: I have concluded that this is definitely my favourite Historical Romance of all time. I think one of the main reasons I love this book so much is because I love the themes where a guilty man tries to win back the fair lady. In this case, Elijah is guilty for cheating on Jemma all those years ago, and we see how Jemma is wooed back by her beloved husband in this book. I keep coming back and reading certain scenes, I am so glad I bought this book.
