From New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries comes a sparkling new series about an oft-widowed mother’s grown children, who blaze through society in their quest for the truth about their fathers . . . and in the process find that love just might conquer all . . .
A series of stepfathers and a difficult childhood have left Fletcher “Grey” Pryde, 5th Duke of Greycourt, with a guarded heart, enviable wealth, and the undeserved reputation of a rogue. Grey’s focus on expanding his dukedom allows him little time to find a wife. But when his mother is widowed yet again and he meets the charmingly unconventional woman managing his stepfatherís funeral, heís shocked to discover how much they have in common. Still, Grey isn’t interested in love, no matter how pretty, or delightfully outspoken, the lady . . .
Beatrice Wolfe gave up on romance long ago, and the arrogant Duke of Greycourt with his rakish reputation isnít exactly changing her mind. Then Grey agrees to assist his grief-stricken mother with her latest project: schooling spirited, unfashionable Beatrice for her debut. Now that Beatrice is seeing through Grey’s charms to his wounded heart, she’s having trouble keeping him at arm’s length. But once Grey starts digging into her family’s secrets, she must decide whether her loyalties lie with her family . . . or with the man whose lessons capture her heart . . .
I loved that Beatrice was feisty, opinionated and not out looking for a man to “save” her. There are many different characters in the book, but once you’re introduced to everyone, this is an easy and fun read. There is a good amount of tension and banter between Grey and Beatrice and they both must decide whether to trust in their growing attraction for one another. A solid story with a bit of mystery for any readers who love historical romances! This book is also the first of a new series. Please scroll down for a GIVEAWAY!
