Image of The Lost Duke of Wyndham (Two Dukes of Wyndham, Book 1)

The first in a duet of stories about two possible dukes is another Quinn gem. Her signature wit, sensuality and emotional intensity are brought to the fore by a bunch of memorable characters. For fun and freshness, this is a must-read!

Ever since she was orphaned, Grace Eversleigh has been companion to the demanding, proud dowager duchess of Wyndham. When a high- wayman stops their coach, the dowager claims he resembles her dead son, John Cavendish, and may be the real duke of Wyndham. Jack Audley, an ex-soldier turned robber to aid wounded veterans, is shocked but not surprised. He's John Cavendish's son, raised in Ireland after his mother's parents' death, but he has no interest in the title.

He does agree to come to the castle. That's where he meets his cousin Thomas, who retains the title and responsibilities of the duke. Thomas is engaged to Amelia Willoughby, whose father intends for her to wed the duke. If Jack should prove to be the real duke he shall have to wed Amelia. But Jack and Grace are in love, so for his own sake he needs to uncover the truth about his paternity. (Avon, Jun., 380 pp., $7.99)
