Wrexham, Duke of Elsmore, is struggling to balance his account ledgers and suspects his money is mysteriously disappearing, the culprit yet to be identified. With his sisters being courted and estates relying on those funds, it’s vital he discover where the problems are occurring and to solve them. Ellie Hatfield knows numbers inside out, as well as a array of financial schemes that can be used to fudge records, and is recommended to Rex to assist in his financial review. If word got out that the Duke of Elsmore was having financial difficulties, both his family and the family’s bank would be ruined. Forced to meet in secret, Rex and Ellie begin to pick apart the ducal finances, and a romance blossoms between the two. Even as Rex reassures Ellie he doesn’t care about her station, Ellie knows her past would be another blow to Rex’s reputation, which is already in peril.
VERDICT The passion is strong in Burrowes’s latest entry in this new series. Yet with the Wentworths, who were central to the first book, playing a smaller part and a rather convoluted financial mystery, this may be in less demand by all but Burrowes’s devoted fans. The bonus novella from Kelly Bowen is a delight.
