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.

How the Scoundrel Seduces is my favorite book out of the Duke’s Men series thus far. Tristan is a returning character, having been on the sidelines of previous books. As every hero, he has a complicated and sad past that he must confront. But he does it all with a charming smile. Lady Zoe was a refreshing character. All too often are regency era heroines are…boring. She had a fun personality. She had been raised in a nontraditional way – she was to inherit a title and all that came along with it. But when she learns of a scandal that could call her parentage and her right to inherit into questions, she immediately seeks the famous Duke’s Men. She must learn the truth about […]


Review: When the Rogue Returns by Sabrina Jeffries

Review: When the Rogue Returns by Sabrina Jeffries

The setup The plot was a classic historical storyline with a typical historical romance misunderstanding between the main characters. Ten years prior, Isabella thought her husband had abandon her after helping her sister and brother in-law steal from the jewelry store she worked at. However, Victor was under the impression that Isabella had run off with her criminal family and framed him for the theft. This confusion bred mistrust and bruised their love. When they meet up again, they know they must figure out the truth, swallow their pride, and push aside their hurt feelings. The issues My biggest issue with When the Rogue Returns was connecting with the characters. They didn’t draw me in and I wasn’t emotionally involved with their romance. I also […]

I was extremely excited when I received this book for review. I’m a huge Sabrina Jeffries fan. Her historical romances are simply sweet, fun, and quick reads. Maximilian Cale is the Duke of Lyons and the very last person Lisette ever expected to show up on her door step. Max is searching for her two brothers, Dom (her older half brother) and Tristan, but only Lisette is home. Lisette, the daughter of an English nobleman and his French mistress, is appalled by the allegations the Duke lays against her brother Tristan and since Dom is away on business it is up to her to help the Duke and prove Tristan’s innocents. This situation, though unfortunate, allows her to do exactly as she has always wanted, be […]
