In a nutshell: Matilda, Duchess of Hadshire is finally free of her abusive husband when he is murdered by his own mistress. She falls in love with the Earl of Torridon, trapped in an unhappy marriage himself. When circumstances lend him his freedom, Matilda's guilty conscience will not allow her to be with him.

This is the last of a loosely linked trilogy, by the author also known as M.C.Beaton, about three women who are released from unhappy marriages when their despicable husbands get murdered. The set was given to me as a Christmas present - from my husband! I really enjoyed all three stories. I know some people don't like Chesney/Beaton's style, but if you are a fan then I can highly recommend this trilogy (which includes Her Ladyships Pleasure, and The Scandalous Lady Wright)

Basically, you want to slap the heroine until a lovely second heroine with a lot of spunk steps up to the plate and takes charge. And thank god someone does or we'd still be reading!
