Image of Lady Maggie's Secret Scandal (Windham Series)

Like the other novels in the Windham series, the second of the Duke’s Daughters spin-offs is an unconventional tale of strikingly unique characters with realistic emotions and exciting antics. It’s always a delight to read one of Burrowes’ creations, even when the pacing is slower than her usual lively fare.

To the world and to the family, Lady Maggie is a Windham, but she was taken in as a child by the family, and knows she may not share their blood. When Maggie misplaces her reticule, she looks to Benjamin Hazlit, private investigator, to help her find it and the secrets it holds. Benjamin may spend time with the gentlemen of the ton, but he is no gentleman — and when he wants to uncover secrets, he goes after his mission with determination and grit. But more than information, Benjamin wants Maggie. To stay close to her during his investigation, Benjamin convinces Maggie to allow him to court her. The sizzle between them is undeniable, and their courtship extends far beyond Maggie’s imagination. But will her secrets destroy everything? (SOURCEBOOKS, May, 384 pp., $7.99)
