Magic under the mistletoe . . .
One spectacular Christmas, Lady Perdita Selby, known to her friends and family as Poppy, met the man she thought she would love forever. The devilishly attractive Duke of Fletcher was the perfect match for the innocent, breathtakingly beautiful young Englishwoman, and theirs was the most romantic wedding she had ever seen. Four years later, Poppy and the duke have become the toast of the ton . . . but behind closed doors the spark of their love affair has burned out.
Unwilling to lose the woman he still lusts after, the duke is determined to win back his beguiling bride's delectable affections . . . and surpass the heady days of first love with a truly sinful seduction.
This is really difficult to rate. First of all I really like the universe Eloisa James created. Her characters are usually really interesting but this time I was disappointed. I didn’t like the main ones at all. Poppy is an idiot and Fletch is a bigger idiot for drooling after her for years and yet not getting anything in return. Seriously?!?! You give up on your husband because your hair is itchy and your mom is a psycho? WTF?!
The only thing I liked about it was poor Villiers. He was the main reason for me not giving up the book.
