The Duke of Carlisle, Daniel Hayle, returns from Waterloo a hero after the war. He is covered in scars and dreads going to London and facing society. He fears his lack of social skills and his scars will make it hard for him to find a wife. He decides that he needs all the help he can get with navigating and socializing with London's elite.
The book was an easy read and had a few twists but, most were predictable. I would classify this as a steamy romance novel and that was a bit unexpected for me (although, I should have guessed by the cover). The novel is the third book in the series but, I was able to read this book as standalone. It was charming story but, it had lagged during the middle parts. Readers who enjoy a steamy romance with a bit of heart and mystery will enjoy this book.
