2015 book 58

Sabrina Jeffries' How the Scoundrel Seduces
The third book in Jeffries' Duke's Men series centers on brother Tristan and an intriguing lady from the previous book, who hires him to investigate her parentage after her aunt tells her she's actually a Gypsy's baby (!!!). This is primarily interesting b/c she's one of the few women in England who can actually inherit her father's title/estate, so she wants to be sure she's legitimate--and if not, she plans to marry her cousin, the next in line after her. Too bad Tristan is super into her, and vice versa. I liked this one a lot, because the obstacles felt realistic and I really wanted to see how Jeffries would work everything out--which didn't at all go how I expected! Maybe there are a few too many coincidences, but it actually all worked in context. I also really like the way Jeffries writes families. Good stuff. A-.
