Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The third deliciously sexy novel in the New York Times bestselling Duke’s Men historical romance series, featuring an investigator who sets out to find gypsies—and unexpectedly finds love.

Investigator Tristan Bonnaud has one aim in life—to make sure that his half-brother George can’t ever ruin his life again. So when the pesky Lady Zoe Keane, the daughter of the Earl of Olivier, shows up demanding that the Duke’s Men find a mysterious gypsy woman, he seizes the opportunity to also hunt for a gypsy friend who knows secrets about George. Tristan doesn’t expect to uncover Lady Zoe’s family secrets, as well…or end up falling for the woman who will risk all to discover the truth.

Review:

"Jeffries's lively third Duke's Men 19th-century romance finds Lady Zoe Keane determined to learn the truth about her origins, even if it means hiring the decidedly unsettling Tristan Bonnaud, one of the famous 'Duke's Men' of Manton Investigations. Tristan is far from thrilled to work for a woman with a 'penchant for sticking nose where it doesn't belong.' Zoe should, one day, become Countess of Olivier, but if the couple who raised her weren't her real parents, she'll lose claim to the title and the estate. As the bastard son of Viscount Rathmoor, Tristan was denied his meager inheritance by his half-brother, George. Now he's counting on using his commission from Zoe's case to fund his own quest for revenge. As their investigations proceed, Zoe and Tristan's growing mutual attraction becomes just one more secret that's bound to be revealed. The setting is vivid, the lovers are well-drawn and colorful, and the mystery is intriguing, making this a winner for fans and new readers. (Aug.) " Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

About the Author

Sabrina Jeffries is the New York Times bestselling author of thirty-eight novels and nine works of short fiction (some written under the pseudonyms Deborah Martin and Deborah Nicholas). Whatever time not spent writing in a coffee-fueled haze of dreams and madness is spent traveling with her husband and adult autistic son or indulging in one of her passions—jigsaw puzzles, chocolate, and music. With more than 7 million books in print in eighteen different languages, the North Carolina author never regrets tossing aside a budding career in academics for the sheer joy of writing fun fiction, and hopes that one day a book of hers will end up saving the world. She always dreams big.
