Duncan Wentworth once tried his hand at rescuing a damsel in distress long ago, and he's vowed he'll never make that mistake again. Yet when he comes across a stranger in the poacher-infested woods of his estate, decency compels him to offer the lady aid. Matilda is whip-smart, she can read Duncan's horrible penmanship, and when she wears his reading glasses all Duncan can think about is naughty Latin poetry.

Widowed duchess Matilda Wakefield can't entrust her secrets to Duncan without embroiling him in the problems that sent her fleeing from London, but neither can she ignore a man who's honorable, a brilliant chess player, and maddeningly kissable. She needs to stay one step ahead of the enemies pursuing her, and falling into Duncan's arms is a distraction she can't afford-or they'll both pay the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Check and Mate! This is the second instalment in the Rogues to Riches series by Grace Burrowes. In this book we follow the Wentworth poor relation, cousin Duncan after he has been given one of the Wentworth holding to make solvent. Duncan feels his families attempt to give him purpose is a punishment. Banished to the wilds of Berkshire with an Albatros of a property, Duncan is waiting out his time until he can leave this task and go back to his work travels. Widowed Duchess Matilda Wakefield is in hiding and has come to the one place that has ever felt like home. The old Duke has passed away leaving the property all but abandon, what better place to hide from her pursuers? When Duncan comes across Matilda on his land he is protective instincts come to life. Will Matilda open up enough to keep them both safe or will the past that she is running from catch up to the both of them? I just love Grace Burrows works. She weaves a great tale and Crete multifaceted characters. These loveable characters also have the tendency to show up in other books and even series, which really makes them all must read books. I wholeheartedly recommend this book, and that you read My One and Only Duke first if you haven’t. It isn’t necessary, the stories can be one-off, but it just add to the overall coming home feel of the book. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Forever through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
