About this ebook

Jack Audley has been a highwayman.

A soldier. And he has always been a rogue. What he is not, and never wanted to be, is a peer of the realm, responsible for an ancient heritage and the livelihood of hundreds. But when he is recognized as the long-lost son of the House of Wyndham, his carefree life is over. And if his birth proves to be legitimate, then he will find himself with the one title he never wanted: Duke of Wyndham.

Grace Eversleigh has spent the last five years toiling as the companion to the dowager Duchess of Wyndham. It is a thankless job, with very little break from the routine . . . until Jack Audley lands in her life, all rakish smiles and debonair charm. He is not a man who takes no for an answer, and when she is in his arms, she's not a woman who wants to say no. But if he is the true duke, then he is the one man she can never have . . .

    I quite enjoyed this book. Jack was a good lead.. and I enjoyed the chemistry between Grace and him. I haven't read Julia Quinn in a while and when reading I noticed how much I missed her writing. Looking forward to Thomas' story.

    Found this entertaining. The last result of being waylaid by a highwayman is that it would put the inheritance of the lordship of Wyndham under question. Jack Audley is the highwayman and his plans for a carefree life are about to be upset. Grace Eversleigh has been the companion of the dowager Duchess of Wyndham, a thankless job but it keeps her from being homeless, Jack Audley is attracting her and distracting her and this will all change the future of the estate.I enjoyed the read, fun stuff. Companion book to Mr Cavendish, I presume which I read previously.

    An absolutely brilliant book! Definitely worth reading! I wondered several times what direction the story would go, and it kept me invested in the story.

    Though the plot is unrealistic, I was happy to put that aside and just enjoy the characters. Quinn is able to create memorable characters and the Dowager in this is one of them. Looking forward to reading the next book.

    A feel good, happily ever after with likeable characters (for the most part.) Some "adult" language and sex scenes...best for the mature female reader. Works as a stand-alone but entices reader to continue with series without a cliffhanger.
