Catherine Raybourne, the Marchioness of Foster, is surprised to see that her husband has returned. He has been gallivanting around the world for the past five years and she didn't know if he would ever return.
Jamie has returned because of his need for an heir, at least that is what he tells his wife. He can't tell her that he has missed her every day that he has been gone. Because of a misunderstanding, Jamie couldn't stay around and have all of London think his wife cheated on him.
Catherine doesn't know what to think when Jamie shows up. She has missed her husband and would really love a child, but can she forgive him for leaving her?
This was an enjoyable novella. Having been introduced to Catherine in the previous novel, it was nice to see she got her happily ever after. I think I would have like it more if Jamie had to do more to win Catherine back, she seemed to give in a little too quickly.
