Recommended to Anzu by: After 8 years Jemma finally came back to London with Elijah as both agree that it is past time for them to beget an heir but both are a tad bit unsure of how to go about with the other.
But I’ve bought it so I’ll give it a try. Having Jemma understand was even more asinine and unrealistic. How was this going to be resolved? His is not an affair formed in betrayal or misplaced affection.
Wives nagged and complained.

Save udchess name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. I have waited a long time to read this book. Second, I found the frequent discussions about ‘acting like a duke’ and ‘acting like a duchess’ to be annoying and distracting. I remember loving everything about this book, and read it a few times! I was cracking up at some scenes.
Desperate Duchesses Series by Eloisa James
Jul 13, Ana T. I think it strikes on a personal level for me.
No man can resist Jemma’s sensuous allure. Leave A Comment Cancel reply Comment. But what manner of seduction will make a man fall desperately in love…with his own wife? I actually feel bad for Villiers.
What Jemma doesn’t know is that her husband was infatuated with her when they married. I was almost disappointed that Jemma’s eloiaa had arrived–I was enjoying her story too much to want it to end. But this is a charming book, right? Jemma had been betrayed since she found her husband with his mistress, and then minw fled to Paris for nine years leaving her husband.
And now it’s years later and the two of them have decided to try to give their marriage another chance for the sake of an heir, if nothing else.
Even though Jemma and Elijah have been married for almost 10 years, they’ve lived apart for the majority of them due pf an ugly scene during the first weeks of their marriage. Brigitte, her femme de chambre, popped into the chamber with a fistful of cards.
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. I came into this not as a new reader and I was still lost.
If that wasn’t bad enough, both the heroes were repeating themselves to the point you didn’t have to read to guess the outcome of the dialogue. The thing that honestly had me finally picking up elosia book besides boredom was Elijah’s heart condition and it being the ‘catalyst’ that lures the estranged couple back together. And speaking of Villiers was I the only one who thought he was a true hero when he was using his sword steel dudhess you perverts!!!
Refresh and try again. In her professorial guise, she’s written a New York Times op-ed defending romance, as well as articles published everywhere from women’s magazines such as More to writers’ journals such as the Romance Writers’ Report.
Yet the literature professor in me certainly plays into my romances. Each has made huge mistakes in the past and must work to forgive each other and overcome past hurts.
Go read this book.
