The course of true love - or irritation - never did run smooth.
Five years ago, Lady Violet Grey and Lord James Audley met, fell in love, and married.
Four years ago, they had a fight to end all fights, and have barely spoken since.
Their once-passionate love may have dissolved into cold, detached politeness, but when Violet receives a letter that James has been thrown from his horse, she races to be by his side - only to discover him alive, well, and baffled by her concern.
Outraged, Violet decides to feign an illness of her own to teach her estranged husband a lesson. And so begins an ever-escalating game of manipulation - and a great deal of flirtation between a husband and wife who might not hate each other as much as they thought.
In this warring marriage, which spouse will be the victor?
And will the real prize be winning back the love they each thought they'd lost?
'A laugh-out-loud Regency romp - if you loved the Bridgertons, you'll adore To Have and to Hoax!' Lauren Willig, New York Times bestselling author
