Another great novel from Eloisa James. I have read all of her novels and everyone is a keeper. Mia and Vander, our hero and heroine have a history that goes back to childhood. Mia's father and Vander's mother had a love affair that lasted through their childhood. They have not seen each other since their the death of their parents. Mia reappears in his life with a blackmail scheme. She is blackmailing him into marrying her. She has a letter that was written by his father that could cause him to lose his rank and estate to the crown. He agrees to marry her but he changes the rules. She has to live with him and give him conjugal rights four night a year. She doesn't want to live with him, she is only blackmailing him so he can become the guardian of her handicapped nephew instead of a villian uncle who wants to get rid of the boy so he can inherit. They are forced to live together and cannot help the feelings that are developing between them. They do not want to fall in love with each other, but they cannot seem to help it. This story has everything, loss, loneliness, friendship, and a love that willlast a lifetime. This is quintessional Eloisa. A complicated plot with enlightning emotions and a joy to read. Love her.
