The heir presumptive to the Viscount Rathmoor, Dominick Manton once had his heart's desire within reach - a bright future as a barrister and engagement to Jane Vernon. Then a shattering betrayal by his vindictive brother George snatched away Dom's inheritance and his hopes of offering Jane a secure future. Now George is gone, and the viscountcy has been restored to Dom, since his brother's widow Nancy never bore an heir. But when Nancy goes missing, a panicked Jane calls on her former fiancé to track down her cousin.
Dom knows the mistakes of the past may be unforgivable - but now, entangled together in mystery and danger, will they rekindle a passionate longing that was never lost to begin with?

A good end to the series. Not my favorite but still good. This book started out well and the narration was very well done. About half way through it seemed to lag a bit and I had to replay parts because I couldn't stay interested. It finished strongly and wrapped up everyone's story nicely. I especially liked Dom's description of the Peterloo Massacre; a bit of history to research.
I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
So this is the last book in the series ... and sadly it is my least favorite. That doesn't mean it isn't good - just not AS good!
Dom is so rigid and stalwart. He really needed to let loose. Jane has decided she has nothing to lose so she is a bit more out going.
The story for this book was a bit of a mystery, which made you want to know what the TRUTH was. The relationship was already established - they just had to get BACK TOGETHER - which was a bit annoying at times.
Overall - I enjoyed it - but it was just a touch of a let down after 3 great books.
Worth a listen and worth a credit. I highly recommend the Duke's Men series!
I always enjoy Sabrina' Jefferies books. the story is engaging and the narrator makes the book come alive.
