Aphrodite wishes to escape the marriage mart but will a second chance with the elusive Duke of Everely change her mind?

Aphrodite Du Bell is a diamond of the first water and a favourite of the queen. Famed for her beauty, the members of the ton praise her warm brown skin, perfect curls and exquisite features. But her renowned loveliness didn't stop the love of her life, Evander Eagleman, from jilting her and marrying another woman four years ago.

Heartbroken and still not knowing why the Duke threw her over, Aphrodite has been in self-imposed exile ever since. However, when her formidable mother summons her back to London to aid in her sister Hathor's debut into society, Aphrodite has no choice but to acquiesce.

Upon her return, Aphrodite learns that the newly widowed Evander is in town for his sister Verity's debut. Naturally, Aphrodite resolves not to be in his presence, but despite her best efforts, the grand societal events of the season repeatedly push them together. With each encounter, buried passions reignite and Aphrodite's traitorous feelings make it perfectly clear that the Duke still holds court over her heart.

Can the couple make strides to mend past hurts, or will the true reason Evander pushed Aphrodite aside threaten their coveted future and even their lives?
