Newly arrived from the country for the Season, Lady Olivia is appalled to discover that her own husband, Lord Coventry, doesn’t even recognize her.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned…too bad this woman finds her husband nearly irresistible.

A serious botanist, she has no desire to wed, so being forced by her guardian to participate in the Season to find a husband is torture.
