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 . . .… (més)

The character's thoughts and banter were witty, the ones who were meant to be likable genuinely were, and even the unlikable ones weren't mustache-twirling villains, merely difficult or selfish, like regular disagreeable people. The characters' backgrounds and struggles were believable, not overly sordid and contrived. Stray descriptors or someone's inner thoughts often made me chuckle. I found it a very enjoyable read.

2nd Read- I had remembered really liking this but I couldn't recall much about it so I gave it another read. I find the couple very likable, the heroine is loyal and good-hearted, and the hero is chock full of roguish charm. It's fun to watch their feelings develop, and I think they're well suited for each other. ( )

Excellently written as always. Humour and romance. ( )

It is not JQ best. I really didn't connect with the characters, it was always something missing.
It was disappointing and weak. ( )

The Lost Duke of Wyndham
4 Stars

A sweet romance with no real conflict, which makes this a light and fun read.

Jack is charming and witty, and while my preference is usually for the dark, brooding and tortured hero, he is an endearing character. Grace is a likable heroine, but her personality is quite bland and she lacks backbone. Yes, she is a lady's companion but she is not completely without resources and could have been a little less prim and proper and a bit more firm in standing up to the obnoxious Dowager Duchess.

The lost heir plot is well developed and entertaining, and Quinn's writing is, as always, smooth and absorbing. The secondary characters, Thomas in particular, have definite potential and I look forward to reading his and Amelia's story. ( )

I quite enjoyed this book. Jack was a good lead.. and I enjoyed the chemistry between Grace and him. I haven't read Julia Quinn in a while and when reading I noticed how much I missed her writing. Looking forward to Thomas' story. ( )

Grace Eversleigh had been the companion to the dowager Duchess of Wyndham for five years, and in that time she had learned several things about her employer, the most pertinent of which was this: Under her grace's stern, exacting, and haughty exterior did not beat a heart of gold.
