Jason Cavendish, the Earl of Coventry, is trying to discreetly locate his unwanted and abandoned bride among London society to request an annulment. However, he doesn’t remember what she looks like because he was blind drunk at his arranged wedding and hasn’t seen her since. The fascinating Lady Olivia has captured the Earl’s attention. Newly arrived from the country to stay with her school friend for the Season, she is appalled to discover that her husband, Lord Coventry, doesn't even recognize her. She's not about to tell the arrogant arse that she is his wife. Instead, she flirts with him by night and has her modiste send her mounting bills to him by day. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned… Too bad this woman finds her husband nearly irresistible. 

Fiona's Thoughts:
The Elusive Wife is a Historical Romance, which isn't my normal choice of reading but figured I would give it a shot. The language was a little strange at first, but you get used to it.

Jason Cavendish the Earl of Coventry has to marry a woman of his dead father's choosing to maintain his position. He goes to the country house, completely trashed to marry Lady Jane Grant. He marries her, passes out and then leaves!When he returns to London, he acts as if everything is normal. Only his friend Drake even knows of the marriage. At a party he has met a woman who intrigues him and seeks her out. Lady Jane Olivia Grant can't believe she is going to come face to face with the husband who left without speaking to her. As Jason starts talking, Olivia realizes he doesn't even know her. How she was able to keep calm, and get even amazes me.

I was pleased with the spunk Olivia had, given the historical aspect, I was afraid she was going to be walked all over by Jason. This is a good story that is great for easing in to a different kind of genre then you may be used to.

Rating: 3.5 Wine Glasses
