THIS DUCHESS OF MINE
Genre: Historical Romance
James' desperate duchesses have captured readers' hearts and imaginations, perhaps none so much as Jemma, the Duchess of Beaumont. It's a joy to see this master chess player caught in a high-stakes game of love, where one false move means you lose your heart. James is clever and witty and writes with style and grace; she also touches readers on many levels, making them believe in the power of love to overcome any obstacle and make the world a better place.
For nine years, Jemma, the Duchess of Beaumont, has lived a seemingly carefree existence on the continent while her husband, Elijah, builds his political career. Few know why she fled on her wedding night, and most believe the rumors of her scandalous affairs.
Now, Elijah needs an heir and summons Jemma home to do her wifely duty. She's shocked by her immediate sensual reaction to Elijah and wonders what would happen if they were to rebuild their marriage. So Jemma sets out to seduce her husband, allowing their mature passions to lead them on
