Never a Duke

Forever. (Rogues to Riches, Bk. 7). Apr. 2022. 400p. ISBN 9781538706985. pap. $8.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Ned is a Wentworth by name and a banker by trade, but neither of those titles seems to fit, thanks to his humble and thieving beginnings and his miraculous rescue by the Wentworth family. Society only knows whispers about the sordid parts of Ned’s past, but they are enough for Lady Rosalind Kinwood to think he is the only person to help solve the mystery of missing ladies’ maids. In order to discuss the investigation, Ned begins escorting Rosalind to various functions, and she soon discovers that he willingly listens and respects her opinions, unlike society or her harshly critical family. Likewise, Ned finds Rosalind to be encouraging of the many facets of his character, not just the ones that define him as a Wentworth. As the two fall for each other, they must still race against the tide itself to find and rescue the missing women and prevent the same thing from ever happening again.
VERDICT Burrowes’s “Rogues to Riches” series is a popular choice among readers for good reason, and Ned and Rosalind’s entry, with its sweet love story and savory mystery, will continue that trend.
