Finally, the fun loving, irreverent Duke of Aston’s story. Every one of The Dukes’ Club stories has been amazing and this one is no different. Derek the Duke of Aston is a hiding a secret that could change the way the Ton treats him. So he has adopted a false persona that keeps people from getting too close, except for his bastard son Tony, who he loves with all his heart and will protect with his life.
Lady Rosamund is an independent Highland Lass who goes where she wants and does whatever pleases her. After all there is not much to do in the Highlands of Scotland when there are no other young ladies to socialize with. Her brother the Duke of Blackburn is the hero in Book 3 of the Dukes’ Club, but he has yet to meet the love of his life so he is still grumpy and not a lot of fun to be around.
One day in the middle of winter Rosamund is swimming in the freezing loch and lo and behold she swims right up to a naked man. Of course the naked man is the Duke of Aston who is in Scotland visiting friends. There is an immediate electrifying stop the world from spinning attraction. Derek is a rogue who cannot fail to take advantage of the situation and follows her as she swims away. Rosamund is sassy and unafraid and she is intrigued by him also. Until she tell him that she is the Duke of Blackburn’s sister. Derek immediately turns around to get as far away from her as he can. He doesn’t need that kind of trouble. But of course Rosamund won’t leave well enough alone and pursues him.
This is a very well written, witty, enthralling love story that will make you wish it will never end.
I have always loved Eva’s writing style. She is a wonderful storyteller who knows how to keep you captivated till the end. Her characters are intelligent, stubborn, funny and a joy to read.
This is the 5th book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone novel. I recommend that if you have not read the first four you should definitely buy them. They are worth the price!!! I cannot wait for Tony’s, Charles’s and Mr. Basingstoke’s stories.
