Gigi, Lady Tremaine once loved Camden and used trickery to get him to marry her. Her dishonesty lost her a husband and his trust. Ten years later, she feels that she finally deserves to find some happiness.

Camden, Lord Tremaine thought that living on the other side of the Atlantic was enough to get Gigi out of his system. Her demand for a divorce infuriates him, and he is determined to punish her.

Lord and Lady Tremaine have the best marriage in England, because they have not spoken in ten years. Now Gigi has found someone to marry and wishes a divorce. Camden will give her the divorce for a price, an heir.

This is a deeply involving story. Neither the hero nor heroine is entirely innocent in their farce of a marriage. Camden was too idealistic and Gigi too opportunistic. Camden was also overly vindictive and unforgiving; I notice he still supported and remained friends with the purported fiancée who married someone else without even telling him. Theodora is a very weak person who leans much too much on Camden, giving nothing in return. Although Gigi was wrong in the beginning, she has tried to make amends, unlike her husband. Camden began to become more likable as the story went on. I loved the complicated plot and the subplot of Gigi’s mother and the Duke of Perrin. The author does a wonderful job of recreating the late Victorian era and her characters are vividly real. This author is definitely one to look for.
