Description
From the New York Times bestselling author who "delivers lively lovers" and "entertaining, sensual historical romance" (Booklist) comes the first in her new Regency The Dukes Men series, featuring the Duke of Lyons and the illegitimate daughter of a viscount.They are The Duke's Men—an investigative agency born out of family pride and irresistible passion...and they risk their lives and hearts to unravel any shocking deception or scandalous transgression! Maximilian Cale, the Duke of Lyons, accepted long ago that his kidnapped brother was dead. When a cryptic note from investigator Tristan Bonnaud claims otherwise, Max seeks out Tristan's sister, Lisette—and is infuriated to learn that Tristan has mysteriously vanished. Have the siblings perpetrated an elaborate hoax? Or is the fiercely protective beauty as innocent as she claims? Fearful that the powerful duke will destroy Tristan's career in his zeal for the truth, the clever Lisette convinces Max to accompany her to Paris in a joint search for their loved ones. But their journey takes a seductive twist when they pose as an ordinary husband and wife—not an English duke with a tarnished family name and the illegitimate daughter of a viscount—and discover an exhilarating passion free from the damning secrets of the past. With the line between danger and desire enticingly blurred, they discover that some mysteries, like those of the heart, are answered tenfold in the bliss of a true and trusting love.

Whatever time is not spent writing in a coffee-fueled haze is spent traveling with her husband and adult autistic son or indulging in one of her passions: jigsaw puzzles, chocolate, music, and costume parties. With more than eight million books in print in twenty languages, the North Carolina author never regrets tossing a budding career in academics for the sheer joy of writing fun fiction and hopes that one day a book of hers will end up saving the world. She always dreams big.

        Starred review from May 13, 2013
        Bestseller Jeffries (By Love Unveiled) skillfully blends romance and mystery in this opener for her new Regency romance series. Maximilian Cale thought his older brother, Peter, who was kidnapped as a boy, was dead; the title of Duke of Lyons has thus fallen to Max. A message from investigator Tristan Bonnaud claiming to have found Peter alive sends Max rushing to London to learn more, but when he gets there, Tristan has gone missing too. Tristan’s sister, Lisette, says she hasn’t heard from him in months, and she convinces Max, very much against his will, to let her accompany him to France to find her brother. Traveling as “plain old Mr. Cale” and his brand new wife, the two are quickly challenged by their growing attraction for one another, as well as the need to find Tristan without alerting agents looking to arrest him for a crime committed in his youth. This unusual tale of interlocking mysteries is full of all the intriguing characters, brisk plotting, and witty dialogue that Jeffries’s readers have come to expect.
