Lady Eleanor "El" Ramsay's heart was broken by the man she thought she would marry. Walking away from him was one of the hardest things she had ever done.
Hart Mackenzie, Duke of Kilmorgan, thought he had everything in the palm of his hand until he let the love of his life slip away. It has been years since that dreadful day and he is still kicking himself for letting his El walk away.
When Eleanor receives a mysterious letter with a very bold and very nude picture of Hart in its folds, she knows she must let her old flame know of its existence. Putting a plan into action, she boldly confronts him and after showing him what she has, El asks for a job. Hart cannot believe his luck when his beautiful ex-fiancé walks back into his life. While she is hatching her own plan to make ends meet, he is hatching his own to get her to the altar. But in a world full of political danger and dark secrets, will Hart and Eleanor be able to survive their journey ahead?
I found Eleanor to be remarkably refreshing. Her sometimes incessant chatter hid the mind of a brilliant woman who could talk a man into doing exactly what she wants him to do. Ms. Ashley has written a flavorful historical tale that takes the reader from the glamour of waltzing at a ball, to being ravished in the laundry room, and to the more touching scenes of remembered letters and photographs in a memory book. Through it all, you will find yourself laughing at some of the more outrageous antics that Eleanor finds herself in as well as blushing during the more passionate encounters of these two lovers. The Duke's Perfect Wife is a great book that some will find to be the perfect edition to their own library.
