The story is about a duke who falls in love and marries but shortly after she mistakenly opens a letter addressed to her husband from one of his old mistresses. Assuming he is having an affair she decides to leave him but then falls on the icy stairs by her front door, losing her unborn child in the process. Unable to get his wife to even talk to him regarding their issue, and saddened by his marriage falling apart and feeling helpless, the duke decides to leave the country for a while which turns into a year. He comes back after the year away and attempts at mending things at any cost since she is the only woman he has ever loved. However, it is hard for Sophie to forgive her husband but after about a total of 5 days of being stranded in their country home, she finally relinquishes her stubbornness and all the insecurities she feels about him and their relationship only to find herself in a unpleasant situation once again.
I found the heroin, though kind and loving, was very rigid, condemning and judgmental. The duke on the other hand was not only loving and kind but also forgiving and understanding. True that he had a hard time expressing his feelings but both are to blame for their poor skills at communication. Almost the entire book the hero is held at an arm’s length with her unwavering condemnation because she is trying to “protect” herself from getting hurt again. The disappointing part is that the duke is portrayed as the villain when at least he is trying relentlessly while she makes no attempts at improving the relationship between them neither before he leaves nor after he comes back. She truly seems so self-centered and pampered that she believes herself entitled and him guilty. Well okay she does believe that he has been a rake sleeping around the entire time they had been together but then he is not even given a chance to prove her wrong...It was exhausting reading about this character.
Nevertheless, I still enjoyed the book because of the duke. His character truly made the book more interesting.

I laughed, I teared up and was very frustrated with the heroine at times. Goose indeed!
this was the first book read from this author. I thought it was well done. If I had to list a complaint it would be the heroine was a bit 'peevish' but other than that, it was a great listen. Worth the money if you love the genre, which I do!
