Victor Cale never imagined that his sweet, shy bride, Isabella, would use her talent for creating exquisite imitation jewels in a criminal way. But there's no denying that Isa's handiwork was used in the brazen heist of the Dutch royal family's diamonds after she disappeared into the night. Ten years later, still reeling from her betrayal and enraged that her duplicitous side was so undetectable, Victor is sent to Edinburgh to investigate a wealthy baron's mysterious bride-to-be. Simple enough, until the "fiancée" proves to be Isa, masquerading as an alluring young widow. No longer the meek and mild girl he once knew, the bold woman vehemently asserts that it was Victor who abandoned her after he helped steal the royal diamonds! Piecing together the truth of the past reawakens their volatile passion, which burns hotter than ever. But with a decade of secrets between them, Victor and Isa must trust each other in order to bring the real thieves to justice without getting burned themselves

The heroine's life is interesting, but her misunderstanding with her 10 years estranged husband is stretched thin, and her own sister and brother in law are too one-dimensional. Still, an enjoyable read. I agree with the last critic -- the other books are better.

I enjoyed this second installment in the Duke's Men series, although it has the slight feeling of a placeholder book stalling until Tristan's and Dom's stories can be told in books three & four. All the Jeffries hallmarks are present--brooding heroes, sassy heroines--plus this one has the added element of the protagonists being married already (but, obviously, estranged). A fun read, though not her absolute most memorable.
