Eleanor Villiers, now Lady Hyde and originally a reluctant wife to Lord Edwin, has has fallen in love with her husband without the reassurance that he loves her back. It's literally the very situation she'd been desperate to avoid. Eleanor begins to try out various tactics to discover her husband's true feelings towards her, only to find she knows very little about love, and unfortunately, her antics somehow seem to constantly lead her into situations where disciplinary measures become necessary.
Meanwhile, Irene has married Eleanor's brother, Hugh Stanley, Viscount Petersham, even though she's in love with another man and has been since childhood. On their honeymoon to Hugh's estates, Irene finds her emotions becoming increasingly confused as she becomes more and more fond of her husband. Under his gentle care and approval, her true self begins to emerge, unfortunately leading to some unsafe behavior on her part which requires Hugh's immediate attention. He never wanted a rebellious wife who would need constant discipline, but he doesn't hesitate to mete it out when necessary.
The ladies struggle with their notions of love, the men struggle with the hot and cold temperaments of their wives, and all of them wonder what kind of conclusion their relationships are leading to. Can they make their marriages work?
Be warned: This audiobook contains hot scenes and seriously sexy alpha males who firmly believe in being the head of the household (as was the case during the Victorian time period).

I originally got this book because I thought it was next in the Bridal Discipline series that I was currently listening to but this one apparently is a different series. I have not listened to the first book which would have been helpful but I'd say it wasn't totally necessary. This book, though, was funny and entertaining and held my attention throughout the whole book. The wives in this story certainly know how to get themselves in trouble with their husbands. S. Kitten did a great job narrating this story. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

This is the second book in the series. The second one of the former rakes (Hugh-Viscount Petersham who is Eleanor’s brother) marries Irene as her dowry is a parcel of land which Hugh’s family want. Hugh is unaware that Irene loves another man and this book concentrates on their first year of marriage. This novel is set in the days when it was all to easy for society ( the ton) to judge harshly and Irene’s behaviour could have dangerous repercussions. The book also continues the story of Eleanor and Edwin’s marriage with Eleanor constantly doubting if Edwin loves her. I liked all 4 books in this series and am enjoying these audio versions very much.
