Mia's father and Vander's mother have blatantly carried on a twenty year affair while Vander's father was in and out of the madhouse. They are dead now, but it's complicated. Vander reluctantly accepts Mia's proposal. When he realizes the real reason for her need to marry, his ego is deflated. Being married to Vander is a real shock! All of Mia's "book heroes" are based on Vander, but the real Vander is nothing like them. It's complicated.
Favorite quote: "His body was the opposite of hers. There wasn't a bit of fat on him; his body was like stored motion, shaped to conquer men and pleasure women."
It's a rough road to love, but it is worth the ride. I also loved the cast of characters including Charlie, Chuffy, Jafeer, and Susan the maid.
I have read every book by Eloisa James. They are always a cut above the rest. This series just gets better and better.
I highly recommend this book!
