One of Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of 2014
The next fabulous romance by New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James
Having made a fortune, Thorn Dautry, the powerful bastard son of a duke, decides that he needs a wife. But to marry a lady, Thorn must acquire a gleaming, civilized façade, the specialty of Lady Xenobia India.
Exquisite, headstrong, and independent, India vows to make Thorn marriageable in just three weeks. But neither Thorn nor India anticipates the forbidden passion that explodes between them.
Thorn will stop at nothing to make India his. Failure is not an option. But there is only one thing that will make India his—the one thing Thorn can’t afford to lose: his fierce and lawless heart.

“Sharp, smart protagonists, dazzling in everything but love, eventually sort things out in this witty, deliciously sexy charmer.”
Library Journal (starred review)
“Star romance author James revisits her bestselling Desperate Duchesses series with this compelling and passionate book. India and Thorn are complex, intriguing, and endearing, and their romance enchants. Secondary characters enhance the emotional stakes, and fans will enjoy another peek at popular hero Villiers and his wife, Eleanor. Emotionally rewarding and elegantly written, with textured characters and a captivating plot, this is James at her best.”
