    • Abstract:
      Summary: "[The] first book in a series set in England in the early 1800s 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 . . .

Booklist Reviews 2019 June #1

Fletcher "Grey" Pryde, the fifth Duke of Greycourt, fears that rumors of his wickedness have been greatly exaggerated. Contrary to popular belief, Grey does not lead a secret cabal of licentious bachelors wrecking societal havoc. Truth be told, Grey spends most of his time working to ensure that his ducal estates are kept in tip-top financial shape. This leaves Grey with nary a spare moment to look for a suitable wife for himself, let alone keep a harem of mistresses happy. However, when his mother loses her latest husband, Grey has no choice but to come home for the funeral. Once there, he meets Beatrice Wolfe, who has become his mother's latest "project." Grey never expected he would offer to help his mother school Beatrice for her for her societal debut, but then again, he never expected he would encounter a woman he could actually consider marrying. Best-selling Jeffries brilliantly launches her new Duke Dynasty series with another exemplary Regency-set historical brilliantly sourced from her seemingly endless authorial supply of fascinating characters and compelling storylines.

PW Reviews 2019 May #3

Jeffries's riveting first Duke Dynasty Regency has a little bit of everything: an independent, forthright woman; a handsome duke with trust issues; and a mystery. The Honorable Beatrice Wolfe is living with her brother, Joshua, at the dower house at Armitage Hall, where Joshua is the gamekeeper, when the Duke of Armitage dies. The duke's stepson, Fletcher "Grey" Pryde, Duke of Greycourt, comes to Armitage for the funeral at the request of his mother. Sparring between Beatrice and Grey becomes foreplay, which leads to a discourse on friendship and night of passion. But Grey and his brother, Sheridan, think Joshua might have killed Armitage, and Joshua doubts that Grey is serious about his intentions to marry Beatrice. Complex, intense characters heat up the pages with scintillating love scenes amid the intrigue. Jeffries (the Sinful Suitors series) continues to impress, and romance fans will eagerly await the next book. Agent: Pam Ahearn, Ahearn Agency. (July)
