As a young girl, Emilia Gwendolyn Carrington told the annoying future Duke of Pindar that she would marry any man in the world before him-so years later she is horrified to realize that she has nowhere else to turn.
Evander Septimus Brody has his own reasons for agreeing to Mia’s audacious proposal, but there’s one thing he won’t give his inconvenient wife: himself.
Instead, he offers Mia a devil’s bargain… he will spend four nights a year with her. Four nights, and nothing more. And those only when she begs for them.
Which Mia will never do.
Now Vander faces the most crucial challenge of his life: he must seduce his own wife in order to win her heart-and no matter what it takes, this is the one battle he can’t afford to lose.
Four Nights with the Duke by Eloisa James is part of the Desperate Duchesses/Desperate Duchesses by the Numbers series, but it is the first that I’ve read. I love love loved it! This was such a great book for me. I really liked that Mia was a romance writer – so fun and definitely something you don’t see ladies doing in historical romances. 🙂 It was great to see little writing tidbits from Mia at the beginnings of chapters.
Van definitely grew on me as the book went on. Even though he starts out a bit despicable, I came to like him. And the combo of Van and Mia really just made me smile. They have a great chemistry, even though neither of them wants it. Eloisa really wrote a fun, charming, witty historical that I thoroughly enjoyed. I will definitely be picking up more books in this series.
