No man can resist Jemma's sensuous allure . . . Except her own husband!

Wedding bells celebrating the arranged marriage between the lovely Duchess of Beaumont and her staid, imperturbable duke had scarcely fallen silent when a shocking discovery sent Jemma running from the ducal mansion. For the next nine years she cavorted abroad, creating one delicious scandal after another (if one is to believe the rumors).

Elijah, Duke of Beaumont, did believe those rumors.

But the handsome duke needs an heir, so he summons his seductive wife home. Jemma laughs at Elijah's cool eyes and icy heart—but to her secret shock, she doesn't share his feelings. In fact, she wants the impossible: her husband's heart at her feet.

But what manner of seduction will make a man fall desperately in love . . . with his own wife?

Quotes & Awards

  • “James’ desperate duchesses have captured readers’ hearts and imaginations, perhaps none so much as Jemma, the Duchess of Beaumont. It’s a joy to see this master chess player caught in a high-stakes game of love, where one false move means you lose your heart. James is clever and witty and writes with style and grace; she also touches readers on many levels, making them believe in the power of love to overcome any obstacle and make the world a better place.”

    Romantic Times (4 ½ stars)
  • “We met the main larger than life characters and were tantalized by games of chess and flirtation played in earlier books in the Desperate Duchesses series. All those titles take place in the same consistent world that’s a mix of thorough research and the creation of a fertile mind, but This Duchess of Mine stands very well on its own.”

    " I'm reading romance - it must be November. I like the Desperate Duchesses series, but this one didn't quite work for me. Too...nice. Too easy and too predictable. "

    " OK, so I am admittedly a crazy Eloisa James fan. To me, she can do little wrong. That said, I don't blindly love all her books. Even the excellent Desperate Duchesses series has had its uneven spots. The best thing about the series has been been the ongoing story of sophisticated Jemma and her estranged husband. I was almost disappointed that Jemma's book had arrived--I was enjoying her story too much to want it to end. But This Duchess of Mine is, I think, Eloisa James' masterpiece. I laughed out loud at it, and I was moved by it. The conversation of veiled insults between Jemma and the Marquise was perfection. The slow development of understanding between husband and wife was touching. Although James has used the plot device of a husband with a seemingly-incurable ailment before, her writing has developed to the point where she can render Jemma's anguish with utter conviction. Nobody mixes humor, historical knowledge, and modern sensibilities like James, and she's at the top of her game here. "

    " Finally we have Jemma and Elijah's story. I had been looking forward to this story since the first book. At times their relationship overshadowed the main characters in previous books. It was so complex and you just knew there was so much more to the story. In the end I enjoyed the story and was satisfied with their HEA. I was glad to finally get more of the details and see more of Villier. Who is one of my other favorites from this series. I think I would have liked this story more if James would not have glossed over and made nice the mistakes of these two peoples past. I liked them with all their mistakes and owning up to them. While they did own up to them in this I think they were made far to pretty in the end. But even with the way things worked out I was looking forward to every page of this story and was not upset with the end result. "
