The title should be How The Lady Seduces the Scoundrel because Lady Zoe truly TAKES her Scoundrel any & every way she can!

Tristan Bonnaud is the illegitimate son of his Viscount dad & French mom & he was raised on the estate will his sister & his half brothers, George the heir & Dom. George has always hated his Father's illegitimate kids & Dom. When their dying father wrote a deathbed amendment to his will to provide for his illegitimate family, George burned it after their father breathed his last breath. Tristan stole the horse his father willed him & sold it to his Romany friend Milosh, but was accused of horse theft & he, his mom & sister fleed to France. In France, Tristan worked for the secret police & after their mom's death, he & his sister moved back to London & joined Dom's Manton Investigations business.

Lady Zoe Keane learns that her parents bought her from a beaten Romany woman named Drinia from her Aunt Flo, but her father, loving called The Major, won't answer any of her questions about it. The Major's title (Earl of Olivier), estates & money will lucky be passed down to her, but if she isn't his birth daughter then everything will go to her American Cousin Jeremy Keane. If she isn't his daughter, she must marry her cousin to protect all that she & her father have built. Zoe will hire The Duke's Men (aka Manton Investigations) & they will have to take her case because they owe her for helping them with a case in Scotland & she means to collect.

Zoe doesn't want the rude & wide shouldered Tristan anywhere near her case, but only he knows the Romany language & customs. Tristan wants the case, so he can find his friend Milosh & hopefully get some dirt on his evil older brother.

I have been anticipating book three in the Duke's Men series since this series began. Sabrina Jeffries doesn't disappoint. She has the ability, as a seasoned author ,to answer all the reader's questions and to tie it in at just the right moments, so that the reader realizes..."Ah, I see how this plot is all coming together now." In my "book" (no pun intended) that is necessary in order for me to give a book 5 stars.

I will start by saying that I fell in love with Tristan Bonnard in book one. I have a thing for the underdog. His circumstances conspired against him and his sister, Lisette but that never stopped him from turning a wrong into a right. They were the bastard/natural children of a Viscount. Their father's legitimate children, George and Dominick Manton,took two different paths in accepting their siblings. George developed hate and Don developed love and compassion for their half siblings.

Lady Zoe Keane was introduced at the end of the last book. She was owed a favor by the Duke's Men (which is really know as Manton Investigations, run by Don). after she interrupted them while trying to avenge and apprehend an enemy. She kept her mouth shut.

Now Lady Zoe is calling in her favor. The chemistry between her and Tristan and both character's being stubborn, leads to humorous quarrels between them, as they try to up-do the other. Zoe speaks her mind and her mouth gets her in trouble. Even though it was annoying at the end of the last book, it worked like a charm here.

Lady Zoe has a secret but it isn't even "her" secret. It is the secret that her father and aunt kept upon her mother's death. She realizes that she doesn't look like her "family". Could she have been adopted? Is she really Lady Zoe?

This was the first book by Ms. Jeffries in recent memory that I've found lacking in character growth and plot plausibility. Consequently, I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as I did the previous books in the Duke's Men series. Don't get me wrong, the details of the plot are still well-researched, but I just wasn't drawn into the action and was hard-pressed to like either of the protagonists.

In her desire to learn the truth of her birth, the heroine disregarded explicit wishes of her parents and commissioned an investigation, which could have jeopardized her social standing, her title and inheritance for no good reason that I could see. In her circumstances, curiosity was a luxury she couldn't afford, and her disregard for potential consequences was at odds with her desire to preserve her father's legacy for future generations.

The hero wasn't much of a prize either: his desire for revenge against his half-brother clouded his judgment and his motives for pursuing the heroine, at least initially, bothered me. Moreover, the number of blunders he made during his investigation of the heroine's antecedents had me questioning his reputation of a top-notch Surete operative. In a different genre, his errors could have led to a tragic outcome in the final confrontation with the villain rather than a happy one.

Speaking of the villain, the hero's eldest half-brother, George Manton, was made responsible for all the tragedies that befell both protagonists, and in the heroine's case, before her birth. To make the story work, a number of contrived twists had to happen, giving the book a transitional feel, as if it was meant to set up the story of the following book, If the Viscount Falls (The Duke's Men), the last in the series.
