See all Product description. Jemma and Elijah had an arranged marriage over eight years ago, but when Jemma walked in on her husband and his mistress, she took off for France, where she lived scandalously and xuchess for the next eight years. Their way of falling back in love was a little convoluted at times, especially when Jemma’s duchese to get him to have fun and flirt with other women, and she’s flirting with Villiers at the same time, intended to spark passion, but only resulting in jealousy and anger.
Still, I loved the story, duches I was actually okay with the reasoning Elijah makes for having a mistress. And I’m not just talking about the actual time between the reading of this and when I read the last one in the series. Read more Read less. He could spend the last days of his life with his wife.
That information burns away the barriers between these two as they despair about all the time they have lost through their foolish choices.
Nobody acts like this! The duke and duchess may need to create an heir, but what each truly desires is for the other to give them their heart. It got sexy all of the sudden. Aaand I will enjoy seeing him be a father.
They swiveled before her to display a powerful thigh, flaunt an embroidered coat or an enameled snuff box, drop roses, plums and poems at her doorstep. Let me tell you, if my husband were about to die from an unknown disease, I would react exactly the way Jemma does.
But this is a charming book, right? Luckily that part of the story is short and really highlights that Jemma doesn’t really understand her husband. Tough luck there son! In ducheas relations between characters, I may wreck a book for you by making it clear who someone marries, or the outcome of a book.
I was almost disappointed that Jemma’s book had arrived–I was enjoying her story too much to want it to end. Lists with This Book.
In part, it’s because Elijah and Jemma are both fiercely intelligent and Eloisa James writes them as such – there is nothing more annoying than a character who is supposed to be clever but who the author is incapable of writing that way. I bet I can beat his highscore! Husbands were just there, like coals in Newcastle and pigs in the sty.
Books by Eloisa James. She also sometimes feels unworthy and frivolous compared to his important work, even though she’s a chess master and otherwise quite sure of herself.
The rationales for the characters’ actions were not convincing but rather inexplicable to me. I loved Elijah but Jemma seemed to be too flighty and irresponsible for me, especially in this book. Not content with that, fuchess further raised eyebrows upon arriving in London with her private chess matches with husband’s friend. Even the excellent Desperate Duchesses series has had its uneven spots.

They realize that their memories of each other may not be as accurate as they thought, and see each other with new eyes. Please stop by and join the conversation on my readers’ pages.
I wanted to slap both of them because being log heads and illogical in reasoning when it came to matters of heart, personal relationship and marriage. To finally get things right and good with the man you love, only to have him die on you before you have any real good time together? I usually love her attention to detail but I wish she curbed it a little in here because it made the story drag on and become tedious especially when Jemma gets carried away daydreaming over someone’s embroidered coat or dress endlessly.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Jemma is a strong character, with an outgoing personality, definitely hard to handle for a more staid person. But now Jemma is back because her husband needs an heir. And how come they still have feelings for each other after all this time?
As do his reasons for having a mistress he did not even like. Elijah tried at least three times to take her straight to bed, including after the rescue, and each time she found an excuse to do something else–now, REALLY??
