Jemma, Duchess of Beaumont, meninggalkan suaminya sebulan setelah pernikahan mereka karena ia menangkap basah suaminya itu sedang berselingkuh. Jemma yang terluka hatinya kemudian tinggal di Paris, dan menciptakan skandal untuk menarik perhatian suaminya. Akan tetapi suaminya tetap tidak mengacuhkannya. Kini, setelah sembilan tahun lamanya, sang duke akhirnya meminta Jemma kembali ke Inggris untuk memberinya keturunan. Dan Jemma berniat akan membuat pria itu bertekuk lutut kepadanya terlebih dahulu.
Elijah Tobier, Duke of Beaumont, adalah pria serius yang mengutamakan kepentingan negara di atas segalanya. Ia tidak pernah bermaksud menyakiti Jemma dan ia sadar kalau istrinya layak mendapatkan yang lebih baik daripada yang bisa ia berikan. Sekarang, setelah tahu hidupnya tidak akan lama lagi akibat penyakit jantung yang dideritanya, ia ingin membahagiakan Jemma.
Jemma dan Elijah perlahan-lahan mencoba saling mendapatkan lagi kepercayaan dan hati masing-masing. Berkat pengaruh Jemma, Elijah yang kaku berubah lebih santai dan mulai banyak tersenyum serta tertawa. Jemma pun mulai menyadari kebaikan dan kelembutan dalam diri Elijah yang tidak diketahuinya sebelumnya yang membuatnya semakin jatuh cinta. Akankah mereka mendapatkan kebahagiaan yang mereka berdua dambakan sebelum jantung Elijah berhenti berdetak? Mungkinkah ada keajaiban yang mampu menyembuhkan penyakit Elijah?

Read information about the authorNew York Times bestselling author Eloisa James writes historical romances for HarperCollins Publishers. Her novels have been published to great acclaim. A reviewer from USA Today wrote of Eloisa's very first book that she "found herself devouring the book like a dieter with a Hershey bar"; later People Magazine raved that "romance writing does not get much better than this." Her novels have repeatedly received starred reviews from Publishers' Weekly and Library Journal and regularly appear on the best-seller lists.
After graduating from Harvard University, Eloisa got an M.Phil. from Oxford University, a Ph.D. from Yale and eventually became a Shakespeare professor, publishing an academic book with Oxford University Press. Currently she is an associate professor and head of the Creative Writing program at Fordham University in New York City. Her "double life" is a source of fascination to the media and her readers. In her professorial guise, she's written a New York Times op-ed defending romance, as well as articles published everywhere from women's magazines such as More to writers' journals such as the Romance Writers' Report.
Eloisa...on her double life:
When I'm not writing novels, I'm a Shakespeare professor. It's rather like having two lives. The other day I bought a delicious pink suit to tape a television segment on romance; I'll never wear that suit to teach in, nor even to give a paper at the Shakespeare Association of America conference. It's like being Superman, with power suits for both lives. Yet the literature professor in me certainly plays into my romances. The Taming of the Duke (April 2006) has obvious Shakespearean resonances, as do many of my novels. I often weave early modern poetry into my work; the same novel might contain bits of Catullus, Shakespeare and anonymous bawdy ballads from the 16th century.
When I rip off my power suit, whether it's academic or romantic, underneath is the rather tired, chocolate-stained sweatshirt of a mom. Just as I use Shakespeare in my romances, I almost always employ my experiences as a mother. When I wrote about a miscarriage in Midnight Pleasures, I used my own fears of premature birth; when the little girl in Fool For Love threw up and threw up, I described my own daughter, who had that unsavory habit for well over her first year of life.
So I'm a writer, a professor, a mother - and a wife. My husband Alessandro is Italian, born in Florence. We spend the lazy summer months with his mother and sister in Italy. It always strikes me as a huge irony that as a romance writer I find myself married to a knight, a cavaliere, as you say in Italian.
One more thing...I'm a friend. I have girlfriends who are writers and girlfriends who are Shakespeare professors. And I have girlfriends who are romance readers. In fact, we have something of a community going on my website. Please stop by and join the conversation on my readers' pages.
