She has no idea what to expect...
In the aristocratic world of the magnificent plantations of nineteenth-century Louisiana, young Amalie knows how to behave as the new mistress at Belle Grove, but her arranged marriage to Julien Declouet is full of surprises.He's as different as night and day...Amalie finds her husband perfectly polite, although oddly aloof, by day, but a completely different man when he visits her in her chambers at night, full of white-hot emotions and passion that sweeps her away. As the steamy Louisiana summer swelters onward, and the mystery of her husband's dual personalities intensifies, the once-innocent Amalie finds herself embroiled in one turbulent scandal after another...

I love to read! With kids, that hobby is impossible...enter Audible...problem solved. Chores that I dread are now quiet time for this Mommy!!!
I enjoyed this novel however it is not one that is fast paced. The author is very descriptive in her depiction of life during this time and the day to day life of the family. I will say that the plot is deeper than what the description leads you to believe. I would not recommend reading if you want a completely light and fun novel. I would purchase it again and do not regret the time it took to read. I will be seeking other novels by this author for my collection. It is very steamy during love scenes but not grotesque. The overall tone is sad and actually depicts something I could see happening during this time.
