As a young girl, Emilia Gwendolyn Carrington told the annoying future Duke of Pindar that she would marry any man in the world before him—so years later she is horrified to realize that she has nowhere else to turn.
Evander Septimus Brody has his own reasons for agreeing to Mia's audacious proposal, but there's one thing he won't give his inconvenient wife: himself.
Instead, he offers Mia a devil's bargain . . . he will spend four nights a year with her. Four nights, and nothing more. And those only when she begs for them.
Which Mia will never do.
Now Vander faces the most crucial challenge of his life: he must seduce his own wife in order to win her heart—and no matter what it takes, this is the one battle he can't afford to lose.

It’s been a while since I read an Eloisa James’ book, and this title has been sitting on my shelf for too long . . . So I picked it up, blew off some dust, and got comfy on the couch for possible another enjoyable James’ story.

An enjoyable read it was, indeed! The story is not that complicated—although for the characters there’s lots at stake—and everything flows well. However, I won’t hide the fact there were things that made me roll my eyes, such as Mia making a too big of a fuss over something Vander would say (did he, really?) and completely misunderstanding his words. The hero is undoubtedly a jerk, and at times a crude one, I might add, but his intentions aren’t mean and not everything that comes out of his mouth is an insult. Also, when he interacts with Mia’s nephew, you can’t help the warm feeling spreading through your heart . . . Every. Single. Time. Like Vander’s uncle never stops putting a smile on your face. It’s one of these cases you can say the characters in the background are the ones who make a difference.

A nice and fast read that also opens a window through the life of a writer, so that the reader has a lil peek at it. Let’s say it’s a sort of a romance into a romance. And didn’t that just spark your curiosity?
