The heir presumptive to the Viscount Rathmoor, Dominick Manton once had his heart’s desire within reach—a bright future as a barrister and engagement to Jane Vernon, a wealthy baron’s daughter. Then a shattering betrayal by his vindictive brother George snatched away Dom’s inheritance and his hopes of offering Jane a secure future. Brokenhearted, and attempting to end their engagement without destroying Jane’s reputation, Dom staged a betrayal of his own to convince her that he’s not the husband-to-be that she thought.

Now George is gone and the viscountcy restored to Dom, since his brother’s widow, Nancy—Jane’s cousin and closest confidant—never bore an heir. But when Nancy goes missing, a panicked Jane calls on her former fiancé to track down her cousin. Dom knows the mistakes of the past may be unforgiveable—but now, entangled together in mystery and danger, will they rekindle a passionate longing that was never lost to begin with?

When I learned The Viscount Falls was Dominick’s story I was thrilled. I have been waiting for his book!

The Viscount Falls is the last installment within the Duke’s Men series, which makes me a little sad, but it ended on a very good note. This book was my favorite of the series.

Dominick has been through a lot and I’m so happy he has finally gotten his happy ending. The book starts off with a scene between Dominick and his then fiancée, Jane. He has just lost everything due to his sleazy, terrible brother. He couldn’t possibly marry Jane, being unable to support her, so he devised a plan to make her call off the wedding. Over the years, he has lived with regret over his decision to push her away.

Time passes, Dominick has set up a successful investigation business (which has turned into a family business throughout the course of the series) and Jane pops back into his life. Her cousin has gone missing and she comes to Dominick for help. During their search, their love is rekindled. Problem is, she is engaged to another man and her heart is still wounded from their last romance.

The Viscount Falls was the most emotional installment within the series. Not sure if my reaction was so strong because I had fallen for Dominick throughout the other books. My only reservation was Jane; at times she just…didn’t have me on board.

Overall, this was a GREAT read. I highly recommend this series for those who enjoy historical, light, romance.
