Reader Review: This story has a fantastic sense of history between the characters, as well as incredibly memorable personalities and no ham-handed villains. My favorite kind of romance novel is where the hero and heroine are kept apart because of their own actions, and where they need to overcome the doubts in their relationship and truly trust and understand each other to resolve their differences. This book delivered that sense in spades, and not only did I like all the characters involved, but there was a bonus romance between two older characters that could have been a novel all on its own! I'd absolutely recommend this book to other people, it was a fantastic read.
Love has designs of its own.…
To all of London society, Lord and Lady Tremaine had the ideal arrangement: a marriage based on civility, courteousness, and freedom—by all accounts, a perfect marriage. The reason? For the last ten years, husband and wife have resided on separate continents.
But once upon a time, things were quite different for the Tremaines….When Gigi Rowland first laid eyes on Camden Saybrook, the attraction was immediate and overwhelming. But what began in a spark of passion ended in betrayal the morning after their wedding—and now Gigi wants to be free to marry again. When Camden returns from America with an outrageous demand in exchange for her freedom, Gigi’s decision will have consequences she never imagined, as secrets are exposed, desire is rekindled—and one of London’s most admired couples must either fall in love all over again…or let each other go forever.

Only one kind of marriage ever bore Society's stamp of approval.
Happy marriages were considered vulgar, as matrimonial felicity rarely kept longer than a well-boiled pudding. Unhappy marriages were, of course, even more vulgar, on a par with Mrs. Jeffries's special contraption that spanked forty bottoms at once: unspeakable, for half of the upper crust had experienced it firsthand.
No, the only kind of marriage that held up to life's vicissitudes was the courteous marriage. And it was widely recognized that Lord and Lady Tremaine had the most courteous marriage of them all.
In the ten years since their wedding, neither of them had ever uttered an unkind word about the other, not to parents, siblings, bosom friends, or strangers. Moreover, as their servants could attest, they never had spats, big or small; never embarrassed each other; never, in fact, disagreed on anything at all.
However, every year some cheeky debutante fresh from the schoolroom would point out-as if it weren't common knowledge-that Lord and Lady Tremaine lived on separate continents and had not been seen together since the day after their wedding.
Her elders would shake their heads. Foolish young girl. Wait 'til she heard about her beau's piece on the side. Or fell out of love with the man she married. Then she'd understand what a wonderful arrangement the Tremaines had: civility, distance, and freedom from the very beginning, unencumbered by tiresome emotions. Indeed, it was the most perfect marriage.
Therefore, when Lady Tremaine filed for divorce on grounds of Lord Tremaine's adultery and desertion, chins collided with dinner plates throughout London's most pedigreed dining rooms...

Fun and piques your curiousity to have each chapter alternating flashback and the present to slowly reveal the source of the 2 main characters' antagonism. Refreshing that the principals are intelligent and speak that way, too. Clever in that there are parallels in the theme between the different love stories of the different characters. All carefully constructed and well-told, and sexy, too.

Enchanting and extraordinary, I love stories when husband and wife meet once again in time, and this one is the perfect one, entrancing book, from page one to the last one, with a seductive witty writing that you will surely enjoy.

I loved this story. It was different form the other love stories that IÂ´ve read. The love, the passion, the hate, the regrets. IÂ´ll recommend it to anyone who enjoys a wellwritten love story.
