No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks! The story started when Elijah wants to win back Jemma. Elijah, Duke of Beaumont, did believe those rumors.

Wedding bells celebrating the arranged marriage between the lovely Duchess of Beaumont and her staid, imperturbable duke had scarcely fallen silent when a shocking discovery sent Jemma running from the ducal mansion. Because 1 he couldn’t think of how to break it off with her, 2 what could he tell his poor mistress who had already shown up and spread her legs for him that very morning that Jemma caught them in his office Man, I loved this book.

Elijah, in turn, has become one of if not my absolute favorite hero of Ms. So, why do I love this book? Another good one in the series! Definitely my favorite book of the series, this is the BEST!!! They would be having a love scene while talking about Elijah’s previous mistress – it was just weird.
