Tired of being ignored by her husband, the powerful Marquis Valentine, Gwen Stratford is ready to take a lover. To her absolute horror, Lord Valentine learns of her plans and unexpectedly whisks her out of London to the Valentine country estate. For two years she has wanted a real marriage, and if he can't offer that, she'll push for a divorce. Anthony Stratford knew his life needed to change, but he didn't realize how desperately until his wife threatens a divorice. It seemed nothing could go right. He was a failure as a husband, and as a marquis. It was time to right the wrongs... and he'd start by wooing his wife. He has no desire to dissolve their marriage, and he convinces her to give him seven days to prove giving their marriage a second chance will be better than petitioning for a divorce. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, can Anthony finally grant Gwen the kind of life she desires? Or will ruination and humiliation rule the season?
