From the Publisher:
People magazine named ELOISA JAMES’S novel Midnight Pleasures “Page Turner of the Week” and raved “Romance writing does not get much better than this.” Now the acclaimed author returns with another sumptuous tale of passion and misadventure in Regency England....

Gabrielle Jerningham cherishes the portrait of her betrothed, the perfect Peter Dewland...until she meets his commanding older brother Quill. But it is Peter to whom she has been promised. And how can she possibly transform her voluptuous, outspoken self into the poised gentlewoman Peter requires?

When Gabby’s shocking décolletage plunges to her waist at her first ball, Peter is humiliated. But Quill comes to the rescue, to the peril of his heart. An accident years before has left Quill plagued by headaches—the kind that grows more excruciating with strenuous exercise. Needless to say, this hardly bodes well for siring progeny. But the very sight of Gabby leaves Quill breathless. One forbidden kiss and Quill vows to have her, headaches—and Peter—be damned! But it will take a clever man—and a cleverer woman—to turn the tables on propriety and find their way to true love....Disabled in a riding accident, Erskine Dewland, the eldest son of a marquis, falls in love with Gabrielle Jerningham, an heiress raised in India and the destined bride of his younger brother, Peter, and discovers that true love can heal anything.

Annotation:
Quill Dewland is heir to a large fortune that has grown considerably in recent years, thanks to his own good business sense. Now it's time for him to marry and produce an heir. Quill's father has just the woman in mind: a British girl named Gabrielle, who lives in India, where the Dewland family has substantial investments. But there's a problem: ever since a riding accident some time ago, Quill has been susceptible to horrendous three-day migraines which are triggered by any rhythmic rocking motion. Therefore, he can't engage in any heir-producing activities. So Quill's dad decides that Gabrielle will have to marry Quill's younger brother, Peter, a fastidious dandy with a suspicious fondness for makeup. But when Gabrielle arrives in London, Peter is disgusted by her voluptuous figure and lusty, unsophisticated provincial ways, and declares he wants nothing to do with her. Meanwhile, Gabrielle becomes enchanted by manly, masterful Quill. The feeling is mutual; overcome by Gabrielle's charms, Quill proposes marriage, but soon confides that they mustn't consummate their union, lest he become violently ill for three days. Emotionally bruised from her encounters with the sexually-challenged Dewland brothers, Gabrielle consults a wizened old Hindu healer, who of course has just the thing to cure sex-induced migraine susceptibility. However, the healer cautions Gabrielle that the cure, while always effective, is quite dangerous, and sometimes fatal. Besotted with Gabrielle, and distracted by an evil plot that threatens his business interests in India, Quill agrees to take the potion. Will he survive to rock another day?
