Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries comes a sparkling new series about an oft-widowed mother’s grown children, who blaze through society in their quest for the truth about their fathers . . . and in the process find that love just might conquer all . . .

A series of stepfathers and a difficult childhood have left Fletcher “Grey” Pryde, 5th Duke of Greycourt, with a guarded heart, enviable wealth, and the undeserved reputation of a rogue. Grey’s focus on expanding his dukedom allows him little time to find a wife. But when his mother is widowed yet again and he meets the charmingly unconventional woman managing his stepfather’s funeral, he’s shocked to discover how much they have in common. Still, Grey isn’t interested in love, no matter how pretty, or delightfully outspoken, the lady . . .

Beatrice Wolfe gave up on romance long ago, and the arrogant Duke of Greycourt with his rakish reputation isn’t exactly changing her mind. Then Grey agrees to assist his grief-stricken mother with her latest “project”: schooling spirited, unfashionable Beatrice for her debut. Now that Beatrice is seeing through Grey’s charms to his wounded heart, she’s having trouble keeping him at arm’s length. But once Grey starts digging into her family’s secrets, she must decide whether her loyalties lie with her family . . . or with the man whose lessons capture her heart . . . 

“Anyone who loves romance must read Sabrina Jeffries!” 
—Lisa Kleypas, New York Times bestselling author

This first book in this new series by a long time favorite author had me a bit confused in the beginning. I was uncertain how all of these brothers obtained the title of Duke. It took a while for me to realize that each had a different father who had been Duke before them and that they were half brothers with the same mother who married several different Dukes.
That being said I am ready for this new series to take off, so let’s get to the next one post haste. Book #2 is part of an Anthology to release September 24th.
The characters in book #1 are engaging. Being introduced in this book to all of these siblings we hope to get each brother’s story in succession. After figuring out how so many Dukes could exist in one family the story flowed.
This first book in this new series gets 4.25 of 5.0 stars for story line, plot and characterization.
I received a complimentary copy of this title to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
