It is whispered behind the fans of London's dowagers and in the corners of fashionable ballrooms that scandal follows willfully wild Lady Beatrix Lennox wherever she goes.

Three years before, the debutante created a sensation by being found in a distinctly compromising position. Now, the ton has branded her as unmarriageable, her family has called her a vixen, and Beatrix sees no reason not to go after what -- and who -- she wishes.

And she wants Stephen Fairfax-Lacy, the handsome Earl of Spade. Beatrix, with her brazen suggestions and irresistibly sensuous allure, couldn't be more different from the earl's ideal future bride. Yet Beatrix brings out a wildness in the earl he has tried to deny far too long. Still, he's not about to play love's game by Lady Beatrix's rules. She may be used to being on top in affairs of the heart, but that will soon change.

    Barnes & Noble editorial review

  • “In this book, as in her previous ones, her flawed, outrageous, and sometimes willfully blindered characters stumble through obstacle courses erected through their own misapplied judgments, making readers hoot with self-recognition every blundering step of the way...Punctuating her story with spot-on lines...James gives readers plenty of reasons to laugh.”

    " This was an excellent addition to the Duchess Quartet, though I did not find myself all that interested in the supposed main characters, Bea and Stephen. Instead, I was mostly captivated by the ongoing drama between Infamous Esme and Marquess Bonnington. The relationship between this pair was my real reason for continuing to read the books in this quartet. I felt that Bea's character was never fully developed...the motivations for her outrageous behavior never seemed sufficient. The supporting cast of characters, including Sebastian's mother and Esme's aunt Arabella, were outstanding. "

    " The only reason this book got four stars was because of Esme/Sebastian's relationship. I really couldn't get emotionally involved with the Beatrice/Stephen relationship, mostly because I didn't really like Beatrice. Oh boo hoo, you have daddy issues so you're a slut to get attention! DON'T CARE. And Stephen was idiotic for going after a girl half his age. She wasn't mature in the least, and I didn't understand his attraction except for the fact that she was barely dressed the entire book. Happy Esme got her man though! "

    " why would someone marry a man responsible (however inadvertantly) for an albeit unloved 1st husband? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bree | 12/30/2013

    " Way too much going on this book. James should have done a better job letting the h/h of this book have center stage, rather than working so hard to set up future books and give cameos to previous characters in the quartet. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 11/14/2013

    " This one was good but it wasn't really about one couple. It was kind of the in-between book for this group of ladies. I liked it but it only wrapped up two of the three relationships. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 11/4/2013

    " Didn't really care about the ostensible "main couple" in this one. Still more interested in the relationship of Esme and Sebastian (and to a lesser degree Helene and Rees who are the focus of the next book). "

    " sinopsis sih lumayan, sampe akhirnya tergiur mo beli n baca. Taunya tetep mengecewakan sama seperti novel Eloisa James yg laennya. Bener" ga lagi" d beli novel karangan dia. Ga sesuai selera. "

    " I really enjoy Eloisa James' books, and didn't mind this one, but I did find it a bit slow at times. I like the characters and enjoyed reading the next installment in the lives of these duchesses, but did find that I skipped a few pages here and there to get to "the good parts". "

    " salut buat yg bikin ceritanya. ampe berbelit-belit gitu. jadi ga konsen bacanya. berasa nonton sinetron euy... "

About the Author

Eloisa James, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, wrote her first novel after graduating from Harvard, but alas, it was rejected by every possible publisher. After she got an MPhil from Oxford, a PhD from Yale, and a job as a Shakespeare professor, she tried again, with much greater success. In 2013 she won a Rita Award for Best Romance Novella. She teaches Shakespeare in the English department at Fordham University in New York. She is the mother of two children and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight.
