Spring 1783 . . . Jemma, Duchess of Beaumont, has just returned from Paris and is planning to shock all of London High Society - not to mention horrify her estranged husband - with scandalous soirees and a debauched grand ball.

But irritating her husband comes naturally, and she needs a challenge. When her country cousin Lady Roberta St. Giles asks for help seducing the Duke of Villiers into marriage, Jemma jumps at the chance. She transforms Roberta into the most delicious and desirable woman in town. Then she lures Villiers to the house, ostensibly to play chess.

But the plan backfires. Villiers responds enthusiastically to Jemma's challenge and, ignoring Roberta or indeed Jemma's husband, offers her a match - three games, the last of which is to be played blindfolded. And nude.

And in bed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I read it avidly and often with a massive grin on my face. It's charming, cheeky, funny and sexy and I know I'll re-read it in the future. And of course I'll definitely be reading more of Eloisa James's books. Highly recommended (even if you don't think it looks like your kind of thing!) * Trashionista *
Praise for Eloisa James: * - *
'If Shakespeare had written an 18th-century romantic comedy, it might look something like this . . . colourful, spirited romance that will leave readers desperate for a sequel' * Publishers Weekly *
So full of dashing cads in breeches that it's guaranteed to get me hot under the collar . . . Bravo for Eloisa * Fiona Walker *
I found myself devouring the book like a dieter with a Hershey bar * USA Today *
'Great fun. I couldn't put it down!' * Daisy Waugh *
'Hurrah! Romance is back in fashion. No grisly body count, no lurking serial killer. The only four-letter word is love. Choc-full of romantic heroes that would give Darcy a run for his money. Sheer joy from beginning to end.' * Carole Matthews *
Romance writing does not get much better than this. * People Magazine *
