Another sensuous and exquisite historical romance in the Duchess Quartet by the queen of Regency seduction, Eloisa James.
Helen, the Countess Godwin, knows there is nothing more unbearably tedious than a virtuous woman. After all, she's been one for ten long years while her scoundrel of a husband lives with strumpets and causes scandal after scandal. So she decides it's time for a change: she styles her hair in the newest, most daring mode, puts on a shockingly transparent gown and goes to a ball like Cinderella, hoping to find a Prince Charming to sweep her off her feet. . . and into his bed.
But instead of a prince, she finds only her own volatile, infuriatingly handsome husband, Rees, the Earl Godwin. They'd eloped to Gretna Green in a fiery passion, but passions can sometimes burn too hot to last. However, Rees now makes her a brazen offer, and Helene decides to become his wife again. . . but not in name only. No, this time she decides to be very, very wicked indeed.
About the Author
A New York Times bestseller many times over, Eloisa James lives in New York City, where she is a Shakespeare professor (with an M.Phil. from Oxford). She is also the mother of two children and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight.
