The Lost Duke of Wyndham by Julia Quinn



WILL THE REAL DUKE OF WYNDHAM PLEASE STAND UP?

"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 . . ."

The first half of the book sort of bored me, so i slowed down. I put it aside and read others, i got back to it to finish it up! Post half-way it got exciting!! Suddenly there was lots of drama on-scene interspersed with some stolen kisses. Its a slightly long read, but i enjoyed it... eventually!
The characters on the cover, representing the protagonists in the book look very okay to me!Not as great as the book portrays.My favorite character is the Highwayman-Jack of course for his character, but Thomas the current Duke of Wyndham (in the book) sounds very handsome and charming to me too!
I wish he got more time in the pages, i think he will in Julia Quinn's next book of the series.
Towards the end the tension unfolds, and kept me holding mt breathe. I adored the last two chapters of the book, certain moments in particular!
I almost though i was disappointed by this book after Minx, but i was wrong! A good read once you get past the tiresome beginning.
The next book....
