Disgraced and divorced, former duchess Isabelle Lockwood has been exiled from the haut ton. When her older brother cuts her off, leaving her destitute, she takes a job cooking and serving the beloved French dishes of her mother’s heritage at the village inn. When her delectable food begins drawing crowds, her ex-husband, Marshall Lockwood, Duke of Monthwaite, comes into her inn and her life once more.
Marshall had been blindsided by his young bride’s infidelity, and after their divorce, he threw himself into his botanical studies to forget his disastrous marriage. However, his meddlesome mother and his scheming sister both insist he remarry. But Marshall only has eyes for Isabelle, who is as beautiful and enticing as he remembers. The duke can’t shake the feeling that his wife might not be the adulteress he took her for, but is it too late to recapture her heart?
