The Lost Duke of Wyndham

The Lost Duke of Wyndham by Julia Quinn

What was this book about?

Grace Eversleigh was rescued by the Dowager Duchess when she was left with no family and no money. She was assigned to be her companion. But it is a hard life as the Duchess really isn’t all that interested in being nice. When Grace and the Duchess are held up by a highwayman the Duchess recognizes him as the spitting image of her dead son. And she wants him back in her family.

Things are all the more complicated for Jack Audley. He had no idea that his father (who died before his mother even knew she was pregnant) was in line to be a Duke. And there already is a Duke – his cousin. He can’t help but be attracted to Grace – but if he really is the Duke there will be no hope for the two of them. How can things work out?

What did you think about the book?

I felt this was a fun historical romance novel. It kept me entertained and on edge and I was happy how everything played out. I am interested in continuing on with this series and see where it leads. I especially enjoyed the foreshadowing of what was to come with the next novel while not giving everything away.

What genre would you consider this?
Historical romance
