The Undercover Scoundrel by Jessica Peterson

The Undercover Scoundrel by Jessica Peterson

This is book 3 in the Hope Diamond Trilogy.

12 years ago, a very young Lady Caroline married Henry Lake. Unfortunately, he ran off on their wedding night. Realizing that he wasn't coming back, Caroline married his best friend and became Duchess of Berry. She is now a widow and just now coming back into society. No one is more surprised than Caroline, when Henry shows up in London.

Unbeknownst to Caroline, Henry works for the government as a spy. He left all those years ago to protect her. He is only in town to help recover the French Blue diamond. He was hoping to avoid seeing Caroline, but a chance meeting in the park changes everything. The attraction between the two of them is as strong as ever.

Can Caroline help Henry find the diamond without having her heart broken again?

Loved this series!! I highly recommend reading the whole series together (as I did), because the books are so intertwined. They cover the same period of time and with each book you see the same things occur, but from a different perspective.

I loved this particular book because the H/H have a history together. They are married to each other even though they have not seen each other for 12 years. The chemistry that was there then, is still burning hot.

I loved that Peterson took some real life people and gave us a story about what might have happened to what became known as the Hope Diamond. This series is her first and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!!

  1. How does the author explain her marrying the Earl of Berry since she is already married to Henry Lake?

    1. I don't want to give it away, but the author does explain why she married the Earl of Berry. Although she didn't get into the logistics of it not being legal...

  2. Great review you have here. I have been curious about this author, but haven't picked her up. And aren't reunion romances just so fabulous?
