Book 7, Desperate Duchesses

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The next fabulous romance by New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James.

Having made a fortune, Thorn Dautry, the powerful bastard son of a duke, decides that he needs a wife. But to marry a lady, Thorn must acquire a gleaming, civilized façade, the specialty of Lady Xenobia India.

Exquisite, headstrong, and independent, India vows to make Thorn marriageable in just three weeks.

But neither Thorn nor India anticipate the forbidden passion that explodes between them.

Thorn will stop at nothing to make India his. Failure is not an option.

But there is only one thing that will make India his . . . the one thing Thorn can't afford to lose . . . his fierce and lawless heart.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 03, 2014 – James's seventh Desperate Duchesses historical (after A Duke of Her Own) is her most enticing work to date, replete with sizzling romance and riveting characters. Lady Xenobia India St. Clair has shocked the high society of 1799 London by scorning marriage and becoming a successful interior designer. India is hired by Tobias "Thorn" Dautry, the illegitimate son of the Duke of Villiers, to refurbish a house he has purchased. While India works with various craftsmen to make the vacant house habitable, she and Thorn engage in witty correspondence. Soon their budding friendship turns into a romantic flirtation. But Thorn is supposed to be courting Miss Laetitia Rainsford, a woman whose sweetness and biddable nature and undeserved reputation for being a bit simple are quite in contrast to India's feisty independence and cleverness. As Thorn and India hesitantly reveal their secrets to each other, they wonder whether they can accept the risks of love. James's wonderful cast and effortless plotting make this a delicious romance to be savored again and again.

5 Stars | Hot Steam

Sublime storytelling and provocative, boldly drawn characters set this sharp and sensual romance apart, establishing Three Weeks with Lady X as one of this year’s elite must-read novels. Eloisa James’ exquisite writing treats the reader to an engaging and unforgettable tale- a savory mix of witty charm and insatiable fire that captivates and stirs the soul.

Gruff and luscious Thorn is a spectacular hero- complex, intelligent, unrefined and disarmingly sexy. He is the perfect match for the strong-willed and vivacious India. Their enchanting progression from prickly adversaries, to fragile and flirtatious friends, to fervent and inseparable hearts, is a remarkable and moving adventure. With playful correspondence and parring banter, Thorn and India delight and entertain. As ardent lovers- spellbound by feverish and unyielding desires- they simply mesmerize. Their blissful, white-hot encounters never failed to tempt, thrill and utterly satisfy.

I adored this unparalleled and intoxicating romance- tearing through the book, reading late into the night, riveted and relishing every last word.
