Three years ago, Emma wanted to kiss Spenser. Now she wants to kill him. Their marriage in name only saved her from having to wed Spenser's loathsome uncle, and before he went off to war, Spenser promised Emma that she would have everything she needed as his new wife. But when Spenser returns home from battling Napoleon, he seems to have forgotten all about Emma, who has spent the last few years struggling to keep his family estate from falling into ruin. When unusual circumstances finally bring Emma and Spenser together again, Spenser discovers Emma is no longer the vulnerable young lady he married but is, instead, a resourceful and beautiful woman. Now, in order to win back his wife's trust and love, Spenser must first agree to a new marriage bargain. Perkins' elegant writing and gift for subtle characterization enhance her latest quietly brilliant historical Regency, in which she expertly adds a hint of danger to a sweetly sensual, thoroughly satisfying love story.

Spenser and Emma agreed to a marriage of convenience to keep Spenser's older uncle from marrying young Emma. Spenser sends Emma to Kellworth- his country estate and he goes off to war. Three years later strange circumstances bring Spenser back to Kellworth and to a very angry and distrusting Emma. Ongoing trust issues strain the relationship as Spenser tries to determine why the estate has been allowed to crumble, staff has been let go and there is no money to pay for even necessary food. Emma believes Spenser has betrayed her and does not want to be taken in again but what she believes are lies and deceptions. Each must learn to overcome fears and to lean on each other in times of trouble. This story has romance, suspense and kept me guessing until the end as to what would be revealed regarding the outcome of this relationship.
