9780061245602: When the Duke Returns

For the Duke of Cosway, it was a marriage of convenience. For his bride, it was anything but...

Isidore has waited for many long, frustrating years for her mysterious husband to return from exploring the world. They were married by proxy when she was just a child, but now she's fully grown and yearns for nothing more than for her Duke to return.

Until he does come back. And he is not what she expected. At all.

Not only does he refuse to conform to any of society's norms: he won't powder his hair, has little regard for cravats, and seems frighteningly keen on running around the countryside in nothing but short trousers. But - more shocking than any other revelation - he reveals that he is a virgin.

There is an undeniable attraction though, and while Isidore tries to establish whether this Duke was actually worth waiting for, Cosway himself begins to discover that there may be more adventures in marriage than in all of the rest of the world...

Review:

'More posh totty from the 18th century behaving disgracefully'. ( Daily Mirror on AN AFFAIR BEFORE CHRISTMAS)

An evocative tale of love and life' ( Inside soap on AN AFFAIR BEFORE CHRISTMAS)

A cheeky and evocative romp through the lives of the eighteenth century A-listers. Good characters and authentic settings...will have you laughing and cheering in equal measures ( Bookbag.co.uk on AN AFFAIR BEFORE CHRISTMAS)

'Entertaining and exciting throughout [with] enough seduction, laughter and surprises . . . to satisfy even the most demanding fans of historical fiction.' ( Publishers' Weekly on AN AFFAIR BEFORE CHRISTMAS)

It's charming, cheeky, funny and sexy and I know I'll re-read it in the future. And of course I'll definitely be reading more of Eloisa James's books. Highly recommended (even if you don't think it looks like your kind of thing!) ( Trashionista.com on DESPERATE DUCHESSES)

It's guaranteed to get me hot under the collar . . . Bravo for Eloisa ( Fiona Walker on Much Ado About You)

'Sheer joy from beginning to end.' ( Carole Matthews on Much Ado About You)
