This book is in the series "Wicked Deceptions", and is Book one. This was a great book!!! I loved everything about this book. I will say I do hate when the Hero the Duke of Colton, sleeps around a lot. But I love how he stops once the meet again. and truly fall in love. Hermione, Julia, the Duchess of Colton was married to the duke at the age of sixteen. The Duke was pretty much forced to marry her and so he just up and left after they married. Julia, in the preset day finds that she is tried of being a wife by name only all these years later and has set it in motion to change everything. Which leads us to the current Duke of Colton. A great, easy read that I could not put down!!!
