Former Northwestern Law School classmates Dina Willoughby, Miranda Mena, Leah Fraser, and Melody Harris are living the dream. Each had fantasized about the perfect husband while in law school and happily—for a time—that dream became a reality.
Until Dina’s husband kicks her out two weeks before her prenuptial agreement kicks in, Miranda’s husband is arrested for securities fraud and flees the country with all of their money, Leah discovers that her royal husband misrepresented his feelings for her in order to get his hands on her money, and newly-pregnant Melody finally admits her artist husband is a sadistic, manipulative, jerk.
Facing the loss of their husbands and stripped of any financial support, the four women band together to fight back. Drawing on their unique legal skills and with the help of a few friends, including a hunky private investigator, a sexy law school professor, a determined cyber-security billionaire, and the Queen of England, these four women not only take what’s theirs, they build the path to a new future—one filled with hope.
Oh, she wanted out. She needed to get out. Before George Donovan Willoughby the Third bored her to death. She squelched a sigh. Only two more weeks and she could be free. Sure, it wouldn’t be the many millions she had dreamed of, but it would still be seven figures, adequate compensation for five years of boredom.
Wearily, she t uned into his latest prattle. “And as I told my attorneys, there is no reason why we can’t end this amicably. After all, you must agree that this marriage was a mistake, and since our prenup settles a sufficient sum upon you should I pull the plug, you will continue to live comfortably, so what do you say? Let’s end this quickly and get on with our lives.”
Dina blinked, then she became outraged. Did George Donovan Willoughby the Third, the most boring man on the planet, just dump her? “Wait a minute. You want a divorce? From me?” She glared at George. “Surely you jest, darling.”
George gazed at her, his smile condescending. “As I said, darling, I am finding life with you rather boring. I need more stimulating companionship, and I have found it in Mimi Morrison.” His eyes brightened. “That woman is sweet, sassy, and sexy, and quite the firecracker in bed.” He sighed. “I married you because you were hot between the sheets, but once you had that ring on your finger, it rapidly became clear that we weren’t well-suited in other ways. It’s time to admit that marrying you was a mistake. Mother was right. Never marry beneath you.
“So, I think a quick and dirty divorce is for the best, don’t you? After all, we are adults and quite capable of civility. Perhaps Mexico on the ‘morrow?”
Dina stood, picked up her glass and dumped the well-aged bourbon onto George’s head. “This isn’t over until I say it’s over, dear George. Your timing sucks. In two more weeks, my property settlement increases by millions. I can’t believe you want to pull the plug and deprive me of the monies I am due. Being married to you was hard work, and I earned every penny of that settlement.
