In the third installment of The Duke’s Men, investigator Tristan Bonnaud is given center stage with Jeffries’ marvelous storytelling, clever plotting and steamy romance — destined to steal readers’ hearts. The fast-paced narrative is enhanced by multidimensional characters, sharp repartee and a double mystery. All of the elements of a memorable romance are here just waiting for readers to savor them.

As a private investigator, Tristan Bonnaud stays calm and self-assured — until Zoe Keane enters his office to call in a favor. Tristan’s dislike of anything aristocratic includes Zoe. However, by helping her search for a gypsy woman who may know the secret of her birth, he may find damaging evidence against his ruthless half-brother. Taking down George could help Tristan claim his rightful heritage. Tristan and Zoe intrigue one another; as they work side-by-side, facing danger and exposing dark secrets, they uncover a surprising passion. (POCKET, Aug., 416 pp., $7.99)
