Another issue: Allegedly, the h (the widow) married his cousin 7 years ago at the age of 18. We are also told that her husband died a year ago "a year into the marriage." What?? Also, her son is 5 years old. I don't think it's a spoiler to tell you that the mysterious man the Duke sent to her bed to father the child was the H. But wasn't he in India for ten years? Maybe I missed something, but I hate it when authors don't bother to do the math. The fact that the H had any doubt the boy was his son, and the h had any doubt that the H was the man involved, also is hard to believe. There were a few surprises here which kept me reading. I won't tell you what they were because that would be a big spoiler. Overall, I enjoyed this despite its shortcomings. This surprised me because I must say that after reading a number of this author's books, I don't care for most of them. This is the best of the lot so far.
When the old Duke of Romsey and his son die, they leave a four year old boy as the Duke. His heir is a cousin, Leopold Randall who has been in exile in India for many years. Kept away from Romsey Abbey by blackmail threats, Leopold is now free to return to England to discover the whereabouts of his two brothers and sister. What he hadn't counted on was the young Duke's attractive and impulsive mother.
At first this book appeared to be like most historical romances. Man and woman fall in love, but circumstances keep them apart. This was not the case this time. The Duke and his mother are in danger, and before the hero discovers this, he agrees to put the estate back in order in return for the Duchess allowing him to search for clues of his lost siblings. The couple's main attraction for each other brings them into many breathtaking situations.
I like the way the author wove the intrigue with the romance, bringing together the characters in an intertwining dance as each strand of mystery untangled. As in most regency style romances, keeping the lady's reputation unstained is paramount, although in this case the heroine's sour faced sister seems more than able to ensure nothing will happen. It's well worth reading to the end as the author has a surprise in store in the last few chapters. No I'm not going to reveal what it is. Read the book and find out. Lovely book, gripping read and "wow" ending.
