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.
Investigators, thieves, liars and gypsies, oh my! What more could you ask for when it comes to the exploits of some highly compelling aristocrats? I thoroughly enjoy historical romances by Ms. Jefferies and I'm surprised that I've not read the previous two books in the Duke's Men series but after reading about the adventures of Lady Zoe and Tristan I'm definitely going to remedy that. This was not a truly traditional Regency romance but it was definitely an engaging and enjoyable escapade. Zoe's American cousin entertained me to no end with his blunt speech and candid attitude, he left me smirking quite frequently. I loved the combination of Tristan and Zoe as they truly did seemed destined to be together. The chemistry between these two is undeniable and the reader gets to witness it firsthand almost immediately. I highly recommend this story if you are looking for a romantic journey complete with a memorable cast of characters and unusual situations.
