Love has designs of its own. . .
To all of London society, Lord and Lady Tremaine had the ideal arrangement: a marriage based on civility, courteousness, and freedom—by all accounts, a perfect marriage. The reason? For the last ten years, husband and wife have resided on separate continents.
But once upon a time, things were quite different for the Tremaines.
When Gigi Rowland first laid eyes on Camden Saybrook, the attraction was immediate and overwhelming. But what began in a spark of passion ended in betrayal the morning after their wedding and now Gigi wants to be free to marry again. When Camden returns from America with an outrageous demand in exchange for her freedom, Gigi's decision will have consequences she never imagined, as secrets are exposed, desire is rekindled and one of London's most admired couples must either fall in love all over again or let each other go forever.
This was my first Sherry Thomas novel, and I was very impressed by her apt writing, dramatic plot, and light humor.
However, I had a few reservations about the hero's character. There was a certain matter that he handled rather poorly and ended up emotionally abusing his wife for ten years. I harbor a certain suppressed animosity for him, but I cannot deny that, otherwise, this book was a masterpiece of historical romance.
