Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

They are The Duke’s Men—an investigative agency born out of family pride and irresistible passion . . . and they risk their lives and hearts to unravel any shocking deception or scandalous transgression!

Maximilian Cale, the Duke of Lyons, accepted long ago that his kidnapped brother was dead. When a cryptic note from investigator Tristan Bonnaud claims otherwise, Max seeks out Tristan’s sister, Lisette—and is infuriated to learn that Tristan has mysteriously vanished. Have the siblings perpetrated an elaborate hoax? Or is the fiercely protective beauty as innocent as she claims?

Fearful that the powerful duke will destroy Tristan’s career in his zeal for the truth, the clever Lisette convinces Max to accompany her to Paris in a joint search for their loved ones. But their journey takes a seductive twist when they pose as an ordinary husband and wife—not an English duke with a tarnished family name and the illegitimate daughter of a viscount—and discover an exhilarating passion free from the damning secrets of the past. With the line between danger and desire enticingly blurred, they discover that some mysteries, like those of the heart, are answered tenfold in the bliss of a true and trusting love.

Review:

"Bestseller Jeffries (By Love Unveiled) skillfully blends romance and mystery in this opener for her new Regency romance series. Maximilian Cale thought his older brother, Peter, who was kidnapped as a boy, was dead; the title of Duke of Lyons has thus fallen to Max. A message from investigator Tristan Bonnaud claiming to have found Peter alive sends Max rushing to London to learn more, but when he gets there, Tristan has gone missing too. Tristan's sister, Lisette, says she hasn't heard from him in months, and she convinces Max, very much against his will, to let her accompany him to France to find her brother. Traveling as 'plain old Mr. Cale' and his brand new wife, the two are quickly challenged by their growing attraction for one another, as well as the need to find Tristan without alerting agents looking to arrest him for a crime committed in his youth. This unusual tale of interlocking mysteries is full of all the intriguing characters, brisk plotting, and witty dialogue that Jeffries's readers have come to expect.

Synopsis:

From the New York Times bestselling author who “delivers lively lovers” and “entertaining, sensual historical romance” (Booklist) comes the first in her new Regency The Dukes Men series, featuring the Duke of Lyons and the illegitimate daughter of a viscount.

Maximilian Cale, the Duke of Lyons, long ago buried his grief for his missing elder brother, Peter, who was presumed dead after being kidnapped. When a mysterious note arrives from investigator Tristan Bonnaud asserting that the Duke’s brother is alive, it leads Max straight to the winsome Lisette Bonnaud, illegitimate daughter of a viscount and Tristan’s sister. Soon he and Lisette are traveling to Paris posing as husband and wife, in search of Tristan, who has disappeared. And the longer he spends with Lisette, the easier it is for Max to see that the line between dukedom and desire is easier to cross than he imagined…
