Helene, the Countess Godwin, knows there is nothing more
unbearably tedious than a virtuous woman. After all, she's
been one for ten long years while her scoundrel of a
husband lives with strumpets and causes scandal after
scandal. So she decides it's time for a change -- she
styles her hair in the newest, daring mode, puts on a
shockingly transparent gown, and goes to a ball like
Cinderella, hoping to find a prince charming to sweep her
off her feet...and into his bed.
But instead of a prince, she finds only her own volatile,
infuriatingly handsome...husband, Rees, the Earl Godwin.
They'd eloped to Gretna Green in a fiery passion, but
passion can sometimes burn too hot to last.
But now, Rees makes her a brazen offer, and Helene decides
to become his wife again...but not in name only. No, this
time she decides to be very, very wicked indeed.
