The Lost Duke Of Wyndham is rated 3.3333 out of 5 by 3.

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 . . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Let me say it right now I LOVED THIS BOOK! I loved Jack, I loved Grace. I even loved the grumpy Dowager Duchess. Julia Quinn did a fantastic job of writing characters that were easy to fall in love with. Jack was simply amazing. His sense of humour, his loyalty, everything about him had me wishing that he was mine. Jack is definitely at the top of my list for a favourite hero. I felt so positive reading this book. It was touching on so many levels. And boy, did it make me giggle time and time again. The dialogue between Jack and Grace, and then Jack and his grandmother is some of the best I have ever read. She was for sure a miserable old thing, the Dowager, and Jack told her so, right to her face. I loved it. All through out the book it shows that Jack does not want to be Duke. At first, I didn't understand his reasons, they seemed rather meek to me, then at end, it all came out, and a light bulb went off. SPOILER... Jack was afraid that he would ruin the estate becuase of the fact that he cannot read. He was so worried about it, that he tried to deny he was Duke, even after it was proven that he is the rightful heir. That was an emotional scene for. Very well written. After they are married, Grace tries to help him with his reading but nothing she tried worked. Nowadays, Jack would be diagnoses with dyslexia. Back then, there was no such term, so there was no way for Grace to know the proper way to help him. END SPOILER I'm happy I read this. It put a huge smile on my face. I'm eager for the next in the series.
