The Duchess Hunt by Jennifer Haymore
Publisher: Grand Central
Simon Hawkins, Duke of Trent has been doing everything to restore the family name after all the scandals that plagued the family for decades. Then Simon is called home when his mother disappears. As he investigates her disappearance he ends up tangling with temptation. Being close to the only woman he has ever loved makes things difficult especially since she is the last woman he should be desire.
Sarah Osborne has spent her life longing for Simon. Sarah knows that she has no chance as dukes do not long for lady’s maids. That conviction changes after one stolen kiss. Now a passion has been sparked between them that is too strong to deny and could ultimately be her undoing. As a forbidden romance begins between them, someone is out to destroy the duke and everything he loves. Simon is now caught in a blackmailer’s web that could either destroy his family’s future or break Sarah’s heart.
This is another wonderful story that will pull the reader into it and tug on their heartstrings. The characters are very well written and will have everyone rooting for Simon and his family and hoping the bad guys don’t succeed in their plot. The story also has a really well written mystery that will have the reader wondering what will happen next. This is the start of another series that will have readers clamoring for much more and hoping that each character will have their own happy ending. This one is definitely worth reading.
I give this one 5 red roses
