Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
After just three weeks of marriage, Jemma, Duchess of Beaumont fled to France, after finding her husband, Elijah, on his office desk with his mistress. Now, after nine years apart, Elijah has summoned her back. It's time to produce an heir, for the good of the title.

Except that Jemma doesn't know everything. Oh, she's heard about her husband's collapse in the House of Lords, but she puts it down to exhaustion, and vows she'll do what she can to stop him working so hard. But just when things are starting to go right, they're putting the past behind them and finding some hope for the future, Elijah's secret comes out: It isn't exhaustion that plagues him, but his heart. His own father died of heart failure at just 34, and now at 35, Elijah's heart is giving up on him. But before it does, he wants to fall in love with his wife all over again. And this time he plans to do it properly.

At last! After four books, the estranged couple first introduced in Desperate Duchesses are getting a book of their own. Of all the duchesses Jemma has always been the most sophisticated, the most wise, the smartest, the one who plays chess, who dresses best, and whose heart was shattered by her husband. Elijah, by contrast, is the ultimate duke, a man whose integrity and sheer goodness has carved a name for himself in politics and made him near indispensable to the welfare of the country. They are complete opposites. Everyone knows it. Surely they can't find happiness together?

I adored this book. Right from the outset of this series James has intrigued me with the Beaumonts, starting in such strife but gradually drawing closer.

Love the Duchess books had discovered them in my local library. Couldn't wait to find out Jemma's story so purchased this copy.
Story wonderful, book cover so disappointing after having seen the hardback covers. Will not purchase the paperbacks again for my bookshelf. So unworthy of the excellent writing.

This Duchess of MineWhat can I say? I agree with the previous reviewers that this is by far the best book in the series.The story grips from the first and the humour does not get in the way of the story as in some of the other books. It is good to have a glimpse of the social conditions of the times and to understand Elijahs importance to social reform.
Above all this is the love story of two complex well drawn characters.

This series is a wonderful read and sets the scene for the series well. Introduces you to so many people, with totally different characters.
You need to read them in order, as you should all series, yet this is a standalone book too.
a bit weak on content at times but still worth the time to read it

I have read some of this series out of sequence but it did not matter as Eloisa James books are always an enjoyable read.

This was cheap and perfectly OK as I had not read this one of hers. This is a good way to collect the missing links in her canon of work

An exciting storyline filled throughout with love and heady passion. Beautifully written made me laugh and made me cry. Love Villiers ...so funny and sober '' his reawakening is a treasure of a plot .
