'Anyone who loves romance must read Sabrina Jeffries!' Lisa Kleypas, New York Times bestselling author
'Synonymous with smart, sexy historical romance' Booklist
Sabrina Jeffries, one of the best-known names in historical romance, weaves an enchanting Regency romance with a mystery at its core, as half-siblings investigate the truth about their mother's succession of beloved husbands - and their own surprising identities as eligible young nobles. For fans of Sarah MacLean, Julia Quinn and Tessa Dare.
Along with his half-siblings, Sheridan Wolfe, Duke of Armitage, is determined to solve the mysteries behind the suspicious deaths of their mother's three husbands. His investigations bring him into dangerous proximity with the captivating Vanessa Pryde, but the duke, still haunted by a tragically lost love, is resolved to resist the attraction. Besides, lovely Miss Pryde seems utterly smitten with a roguish London playwright...
Vanessa's theatrical flirtation is intended only to break through the duke's business-like demeanour and guarded emotions, for it is Sheridan she truly has her sights, and her heart, set on. As the duke's jealousy becomes evident, the two find themselves propelled into a scheme involving a pretend engagement, a secret inquiry - and a perhaps not-so-secret leap into true love...
For more dazzlingly romantic and witty historical romance, don't miss Sabrina's other gorgeous series including The Sinful Suitors, The Hellions of Halstead Hall, The School for Heiresses and The Royal Brotherhood.
A game of jealousy lands Vanessa Pryde in the middle of a murder investigation in Jeffries's solid fourth Duke Dynasty Regency romance (after Who Wants to Marry a Duke). Vanessa hopes to incite the jealousy of the seemingly disinterested Sheridan Wolfe, the Duke of Armitage, by pretending to be enamored of her favorite playwright, Konrad Juncker but her scheme backfires when Sheridan offers to help make Juncker jealous by pretending to court her. After losing his fianc e to consumption, Sheridan has closed off his heart. He refuses to give in to his desire for Vanessa, but he hopes to use their connection to investigate the murders of his mother's three husbands, his father among them deaths he believes Vanessa's mother may have had a hand in. The two match wits as they struggle to keep their secrets until a public indiscretion forces them to marry and Sheridan finally lets Vanessa in on his suspicions. There are myriad suspects and even more motives but very little evidence; the couple learns more about each other than they do about the murders, but Jeffries still manages to make the big reveal smooth and believable. Fans will delight in revisiting Sheridan's large family in this heated, twisty tale of love and deception. \n
