Eloisa James is a Shakespeare professor at Fordham University and author of twenty-one New York Times best-selling historical romances. A reviewer from USA Today admitted to “devouring” one of Eloisa’s books “like a dieter with a Hershey bar.” The mother of two children, Eloisa wrote a memoir, the best-seller Paris in Love, about the year her family lived in France. In a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, she is married to a genuine Italian knight. She lives in New York City.

But as Trent and Merry discover, love has a way of complicating the most perfect plans . . .
