The Duke demands an annulment!
The fourth book in the Desperate Duchess series.
Thoroughly enjoyed this story about Isidore and her Duke Simeon. After waiting eleven years for her husband to claim her and their marriage, Isidore and her best friend Duchess Jemma Beaumont cook up a scheme to lure Simeon back from his travels in the wilds of Africa.
Isidore is ready in every way to become a wife and mother and the proper Duchess of Cosway.
Simeon on the other hand is unprepared for the headstrong beauty that is his wife. He has been instructed in the ways of...well he is just dull. He hides his emotions, he wants a wife who is biddable and will do as she is told.
Well let the games begin...
Who will win...or will there be a comprise of sorts...
Will both of them realize that they need each other before it is too late.
A good light fun hearted read.
