From the Publisher

Helene, the Countess Godwin, knows there is nothing more unbearably tedious than a virtuous woman. After all, she's been one for ten long years while her scoundrel of a husband lives with strumpets and causes scandal after scandal. So she decides it's time for a change—she styles her hair in the newest, daring mode, puts on a shockingly transparent gown, and goes to a ball like Cinderella, hoping to find a prince charming to sweep her off her feet … and into his bed.

But instead of a prince, she finds only her own volatile, infuriatingly handsome … husband, Rees, the Earl Godwin. They'd eloped to Gretna Green in a fiery passion, but passion can sometimes burn too hot to last.

But now, Rees makes her a brazen offer, and Helene decides to become his wife again … but not in name only. No, this time she decides to be very, very wicked indeed.

Researchers from the University of Maryland discovered this trend when they examined the fracking boom, a "positive economic shock" which they said caused wage spikes for non-college educated men. In the past, these kinds of income increases have been associated with accompanying spikes in heterosexual marriage rates, as with the coal booms of the 1970s and '80s.  But that's not the case in 2017.

Why It’s Still Legal For Underage Girls To Marry In The U.S.

MOST GIRL SCOUTS SPEND THEIR time learning survival skills and selling cookies. But Cassandra Levesque, 18, spent her last year in Girl Scouts drafting and then campaigning for a bill that would raise New Hampshire’s minimum marriage age from 13 to 18. Under New Hampshire law—as in most other U.S. states—minors can marry as long as they have parental consent and a judge signs off. “Every girl dreams about what their wedding is going to be like,” says Levesque, “but some girls are having a wedding that they never dreamed of. They’re being put into relationships that they’re not ready for.” La

How to Stay Married

THERE’S A REASON FAIRY tales always end in marriage. It’s because nobody wants to see what comes after. It’s too grim. Meeting the right person, working through comic misunderstandings and overcoming family disapproval to get to the altar—those are stories worth telling. Plodding on year after year with that same old soul? Yawnsville. Most Americans of every stripe still want to get married—even millennials, although they’re waiting until they’re older. To aid them in their search, businesses have devoted billions of dollars and thousands of gigabytes to mate seeking. Lawyers have spent count
