Review | The Lost Duke of Wyndham by Julia Quinn

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 . . .

Thoughts: I have absolutely always loved Julia Quinn, she is one of my favorite authors. This book sat on my shelf for quite some time and then one day I felt like reading a romance and this was just perfect.

Most of her books are written in a similar way, but all her stories are unique and different from each other so I can't help but love each and every one of them. The set of characters for this one were an enjoyable bunch and I really liked Jack because he is a charmer and even though Grace sometimes frustrated me, she was okay.

I really enjoyed this book and I would recommend to anyone looking for a nice fluffy romance. Those are my favorite kind. And I also recommend the Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn, I absolutely love that family and that series.

This book was purchased by myself at a local bookstore.


  1. I never read a book by Julia Quinn, but it sounds very nice and I'm glad that you enjoyed it. Very romantic cover!

  2. Ooh, I loved this book! Jack was such a hottie and he could have charmed me right out of my socks! =) I adored this story and am curious to see how you'd like the next book, Thomas' book. It was a hit with some but a miss for some.

    Happy reading!

  3. Great review! I've never heard of this author or book before, though the book sounds pretty good.
