Magic under the mistletoe …

One spectacular Christmas, Lady Perdita Selby, known to her friends and family as Poppy, met the man she thought she would love forever. The devilishly attractive Duke of Fletcher was the perfect match for the innocent, breathtakingly beautiful young Englishwoman, and theirs was the most romantic wedding she had ever seen. Four years later, Poppy and the duke have become the toast of the ton … but behind closed doors the spark of their love affair has burned out.

Unwilling to lose the woman he still lusts after, the duke is determined to win back his beguiling bride’s delectable affections … and surpass the heady days of first love with a truly sinful seduction.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Eloisa James’ elegantly written historical romance, sparkles with her distinctive brand of delicious sensuality and wicked wit.”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “James is brilliant. Her stories are dazzling, her characters intelligent, her multilayered plots complex, her dialogue witty and sophisticated, and her storytelling superb. In three unique plotlines she explores the aspects of love. This depth is why James is one of the finest writers of the genre: She makes you believe in love and miracles. She doesn’t just write about one couple rekindling their love; she turns her attention to several couples. It’s overwhelming, joyful, painful—and James’ novel is a masterpiece.”

    RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)

  • “Entertaining and exciting throughout, there’s enough seduction, laughter, and surprises…to satisfy even the most demanding fans of historical fiction…With a menagerie of charming, unconventional characters and a great sense of fun, James’ latest foray into Georgian romance suffers not a single dull moment.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Richly imbued with James’ wicked wit, and once again, the resplendent combination of her exquisitely nuanced characters and lushly sensual romance is sublime.”

    Booklist

  • “This multilayered volume delivers a refreshingly frank (think women’s hairstyles and the attendant cleanliness issues), totally delightful glimpse into the bawdy Georgian era that preceded relatively buttoned-down periods…James is a rising star among historical romance writers.”

    Library Journal

  • A USA Today Bestseller

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jen | 3/11/2011

    " Really? Really now? THAT's what the problem was?

    Also, I really dislike books with characters who are just SO horribly malicious but no one calls them out on it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Carlie | 2/8/2011

    " I enjoyed this much more than the first book in the series. Really, this series feels more like a soap opera than a romance book, and once I changed my way of thinking, I started to enjoy it more. "

    " well, it ended happily ever after. It was funny in spots. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Nichole | 1/29/2011

    " A romance between people who are already married! How great is that?

    And the bits about the crazy and uncomfortable things ladies did to their hair? Really fun. "
