Description from Amazon.com:

Investigator Tristan Bonnaud has one aim in life—to make sure that his half-brother George can’t ever ruin his life again. So when the pesky Lady Zoe Keane, the daughter of the Earl of Olivier, shows up demanding that the Duke’s Men find a mysterious gypsy woman, he seizes the opportunity to also hunt for a gypsy friend who knows secrets about George. Tristan doesn’t expect to uncover Lady Zoe’s family secrets, as well…or end up falling for the woman who will risk all to discover the truth.

**

This was action packed and it brought a conclusion to the problems of Dominick and Tristan as well as Zoe. Zoe was a bit headstrong and Tristan seemed incapable of saying “no” and meaning it.  But if all works out then we have to be happy for her stubbornness.  There were some surprises that added to the enjoyment of the story.  Side characters from the previous books made cameo appearances and tied the series together.  While this is book#3, it is a standalone novel. There were hints that Dom might find love in a future book.

Ms. Jefferies brought her usual lusciously romantic, well constructed plot along with characters that speak realistic dialog.  Always true to the time period, she brings it alive with her prose.

    Although I’m in love with all things love, I rarely read historical romance. Perhaps I’ll pick this one up, though – it sounds intriguing! Thank you for the wonderful review; you’ve piqued my curiosity. 😀
