by Sabrina Jeffries
Publication Date: May 25, 2021
Series: Duke Dynasty, Book 4
Genre: Historical Romance
Bridgerton fans and readers of Madeline Hunter, Eloisa James, and Lisa Kleypas won’t want to miss this humorous and clever new love story from the historical romance legend.
Along with his stepsiblings, Sheridan Wolfe, Duke of Armitage, is determined to finally solve the mysteries behind the suspicious deaths of their mother’s three husbands. Tasked with investigating a possible suspect, Sheridan finds himself in dangerous proximity to her captivating daughter, Vanessa Pryde. But still haunted by a tragically lost love, the duke is resolved to resist the attraction—and avoid any “scheming” husband-hunters. Besides, lovely Miss Pryde seems utterly smitten with a roguish London playwright…
Vanessa thinks a little scheming may be in order—for it’s Sheridan she truly has her sights, and her heart, set on. Her theatrical flirtation is intended only to break through his business-like demeanor and guarded emotions. And as Sheridan’s jealousy becomes aroused, the two soon find themselves propelled into a scheme of an altogether different kind, involving a pretend engagement, a secret inquiry—and a perhaps not-so-secret leap into true love…

“Best-selling Jeffries, whose literary brand is synonymous with smart, sexy historical romance, wraps up her Regency-set Duke Dynasty series and the investigation into a series of ducal murders that began in Project Duchess (2019) on a high note with a perfectly fashioned love story rich in smoldering sexual chemistry, sharp wit, and a dash of danger.”
“Fans will delight in revisiting Sheridan’s large family in this heated, twisty tale of love and deception.”
“Vanessa and Sheridan each have endearing aspect…Readers of previous books in the Duke Dynasty series will be satisfied that the mystery of the murdered husbands is finally solved.”
This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.
This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers.
Sabrina Jeffries does it again in her conclusion and fourth Duke Dynasty novel. This time Vanessa and Sheridan have their own story to tell.
The new Duke of Armitage, Sheridan Wolfe, knows nothing about being a Duke. Thrown head first in his new position, that comes with a cart full of problems. The estate he recently inherited is swimming in debt. Also he struggles with a mathematical disability that is making it very hard to balance the books. This ways heavy on him along with past love lost that has left a lasting whole in his heart. He comes across as too serious, and unfeeling, but who wouldn’t blame him. The only way out of infernal mountain of debt that will keep his estate afloat is to marry someone will a large enough dowry to save his estate from complete ruin. Also there is an urgent need to find out who has been murdering his mother’s husbands.
Vanessa Pryde, is a vivacious feisty young woman, who’s heart has fallen for the broody Saint Sheridan Wolfe ever since his family arrived back in England. Now one knows this secret, and most of all she has led other to believe she has lost her head for a well-known poet and playwright.
A lovely historical romance, with a little bit of a mystery to propels this delightful book. A broody duke, a fake courtship, secrets abound. I truly enjoyed reading this book and thought it complemented the series perfectly!
