Overview

The Duchess of Cosway yearns for a man she has never met . . . her husband.

Married by proxy as a child, Lady Isidore has spent years fending off lecherous men in every European court while waiting to meet her husband. She's determined to accept him, no matter how unattractive the duke turns out to be. When she finally lures Simeon Jermyn back to London, his dark handsomeness puts Isidore's worst fears to rest--until disaster strikes.

The duke demands an annulment.

Forsaking his adventuresome past, Simeon has returned to London ready to embrace the life of a proper duke, only to find that his supposed wife is too ravishing, too headstrong, and too sensual to be the docile duchess he has in mind. But Isidore will not give up her claim to the title--or him--without a fight.

She will do whatever it takes to capture Simeon's heart, even if it means sacrificing her virtue. After all, a consummated marriage cannot be annulled.

Yet in forcing Simeon into a delicious surrender, will Isidore risk not only her dignity--but her heart?

A marriage made real

The presence of Isidore, Duchess of Cosway, at a notorious house party has finally lured her husband-by-proxy, Simeon Jermyn, out of Africa in When the Duke Returns by Eloisa James. Though they've never met in the 11 years of their marriage, Isidore is thrilled. She wants her husband by her side so she can be a proper duchess and ultimately a mother. But Simeon's not so happy. His travels have taught him the benefits of complete self-control, and life in England challenges his ability to keep his baser emotions at bay. There's not only the anger he feels at the shambles his family estate has become, but the lust he can't tamp down for the beautiful, sensual Isidore. The delight of the story is in how two very different people learn to negotiate their relationship and in doing so discover their love for each other. Appealing secondary characters from earlier installments of the Desperate Duchesses series add another layer of poignancy to this most excellent romance.
