This is a historical romance of a highwayman (rogue) and one of the women he held up.

When Jack Audley stopped a carriage one evening to rob the people within, he sets off a chain of events that leads him to his grandmother and his destiny of becoming a duke. The problem is: he likes his life as it is; he has no desire to be the duke. He does, however, like the companion of the dowager Duchess. Grace Eversleigh.

As for Grace, she is attracted to Jack, but she knows that she shouldn't be...she is not in the same category of landed gentry, and he may be the true duke. And if he is, he is WAY out of her league. She can't him no, but she shouldn't say yes, either.

Added to this, Thomas, the other grandson, was considered the duke. That is, until the one chance meeting of the dowager and her companion, Grace.

Is there a way for them to be together? Can love triumph over the differences in the economic situation? Will Thomas lose his status, and what about the young woman who is promised in marriage to Thomas?

All in all, a romance that has few What-the-tuck trends (green-eyed characters notwithstanding), an enjoyable plot, and characters that are likeable (well, maybe not the dowager Duchess), and a happily ever after.

Received today.
Thanks for sending this my way, but, as I already have a copy on Mt. Toobie, I'll be adding this one into a box that I plan on sending to Hagathorn in the near future.
