Publisher's Summary

The dramatic conclusion to the series!

The sinking of the Brig Minerva results in many deaths, while for others, the future is suddenly brighter. But it’s not always easy to leave the past behind.

Lord Randolph Litherholm has spent a year coming to terms with the death of his twin brother Gervase, the 7th Duke of Falconbury. Now it’s time to set aside his mourning and accept his role as the 8th Duke of Falconbury. It’s not the management of the vast Litherholm wealth that bothers him, for he’s been running the estate for years. No, his reluctance is all due to the marriage that was arranged for his brother, and the expectation that Ran will take on his brother’s bride as well as his title.

Lady Ruth Grenaby’s marriage was arranged when she was 12. Now, she’s 21 and still waiting for her wedding day. Her intended husband is dead, but to her father, the younger brother will do just as well. He’s a duke, after all, and his eldest daughter can’t possibly marry a less exalted man. 

She’s a dutiful daughter, so she’ll do as her father says and marry Ran, even if he only sees her as another inherited obligation. But shattering events cause her to re-evaluate everything she’s ever believed in, and she must decide between duty and love. 

This is a complete story with a HEA. Book six of a six-book series. A traditional Regency romance, drawing room rather than bedroom.

The weakest in the series

I have loved this series, and the author is great at creating clean, unique story lines. I will always buy her work. However, this one devolved into the typical misunderstandings and lack of communication, along with repetitive and overly lengthy internal ponderings. Blah. I frequently listened at a fast speed and skipped over many of the internal thoughts. Of course, it needs to be read to learn the benefactor, plus there are plenty of interesting parts that make it enjoyable. I just wish an editor had been allowed to trim out some of the repetitive filler and internal angst to make it a tighter, fresher read.
