Jack Audley has been a highwayman. A soldier. And he has always been a rogue. What he is not, and never wanted to be, is a peer of the realm, responsible for an ancient heritage and the livelihood of hundreds. But when he is recognized as the long-lost son of the House of Wyndham, his carefree life is over. And if his birth proves to be legitimate, then he will find himself with the one title he never wanted: Duke of Wyndham. Grace Eversleigh has spent the last five years toiling as the companion to the dowager Duchess of Wyndham. It is a thankless job, with very little break from the routine . . . until Jack Audley lands in her life, all rakish smiles and debonair charm. He is not a man who takes no for an answer, and when she is in his arms, she's not a woman who wants to say no. But if he is the true duke, then he is the one man she can never have . . .

Series: Two Dukes of Wyndham (#1)
I have owned this book since 2011. The depths of my kindle account is scary at times. I very much enjoyed this one. It had humor, a lovable rogue, a wonderful heroine, some really funny situations. But it also had some heart wrenching moments that had me going from smiling to having tears in my eyes...
Entertaining story with a companion meeting a highwayman and discovering love and the highwayman discovering his real family. It's a companion book to "Mr Cavendish, I presume" that I read before, I liked the two main characters and how they sparked against each other. The dowager Duchess Wyndham ...
This felt like half a book, even having read Mr Cavendish I presume first. It was an interesting idea for a series, but it hasn't worked in my opinion
Bland. Great ending though.
More like 3.5 stars, I think I enjoyed reading, Mr. Cavendish I presume, more, I kinda feel that I liked the other two main characters better. But it was fun reading from another point of view.
