Cecily Nottingham has made a huge mistake! She married an earl who, climbing out of her bed the next morning, admitted to only wanting her dowry. The rat loves another woman but won't set Cecily free. To keep the money, he must keep her.
Raised by a ruthless businessman, Cecily refuses to accept the hand she's been dealt and vows to free herself from her marriage. She is nobody's milksop and at this point has nothing to lose! Hoping to goad the earl into divorcing her, she sets out to seduce his older cousin, Stephen Nottingham. And heaven help her, Stephen is everything her husband is not: Honorable, loyal, trustworthy…
Stephen Nottingham has returned to England to save his cousin's estate from financial ruin but finds himself trying to save his cousin's life instead. For the bounder betrayed his new countess something fierce and hell hath no fury like a woman scorned… Torn between strangling his cousin, and kissing his cousin's wife, Stephen's honor is in for one heck of a beating.
Amid snakes, duels and a good catfight, Cecily realizes the game she's playing has high stakes indeed. There are only a few ways to end a marriage in Regency England and none of them come without a high price. Is she willing to pay it? Is Stephen? A ‘Happily Ever After' hangs in the balance, because, yes, love can conquer all, but sometimes it needs a little bit of help.
