Helene, the Countess Godwin, knows there is nothing more unbearably tedious than a virtuous woman. After all, she's been one for ten long years while her scoundrel of a husband lives with strumpets and causes scandal after scandal. So she decides it's time for a change - she styles her hair in the newest, daring mode, puts on a shockingly transparent gown, and goes to a ball like Cinderella, hoping to find a prince charming to sweep her off her feet...a nd into his bed.
But instead of a prince, she finds only her own volatile, infuriatingly handsome... husband, Rees, the Earl Godwin. They'd eloped to Gretna Green in a fiery passion, but passion can sometimes burn too hot to last.
But now, Rees makes her a brazen offer, and Helene decides to become his wife again... but not in name only. No, this time she decides to be very, very wicked indeed.

I loved the relationship between the friends - like an Victorian era
I liked the fact that right until the very end, you are not sure whether you like the
She just has a great take on the characters, and does them all so well.
I would laugh, and then wanted to smack Rees, every other chapter. ( Get the book, you'll see what I mean)
I loved this book, well worth the credit.

Not Ms.James best book
Better characters that weren't so vapid and dull.
Justine Eyre did the best she could with a dislikable story.
All and start over.
I love Eloisa James books but this one was a real stinker. The characters are unlikeable and stupid. I kept waiting for the story to get better but half way though it was apparent it wasn't. I had to quit, the characters were so dull and uninteresting. The female character was stupid and made decisions no real woman would ever make, at least no self respecting woman. The male character was unlike able and boring.
