The Duke has finally been found and it is Nathaniel Hughes. Having been poor most of his life, Nathaniel went to America and amassed his fortune. No one is more surprised than he, that the dukedom became his. Taking his secretary and her brother, Nate heads to England to take controls of his estates.
Having been rescued by Nate and made his secretary, Elizabeth Smith had hidden her attraction for Nate, as she knows there is no way that her reciprocates her feelings.
But as Nate comes to count on Lizzie more and more, he realizes that the only way he can make everything work is with her by his side...for the rest of their lives.
This is the last book of five that tells the story of the residents of the Duke of Beckworth's estate. Having read all 5 of them, I would definitely recommend reading them all together, although they could each be read as stand alone.
This was a great conclusion to this series. We finally get the duke settled in, all he needs now is a wife!
When Nate rescues Lizzie, he is given the impression that she wants nothing romantic from him. So he keeps his attraction to himself and tries not to be in situations where they are alone. Because of this, when Lizzie starts to have feelings for Nate, she thinks that her feelings are not reciprocated. All of this leads us on a merry chase following these two to the alter!!
I really liked the way the authors came together to do this multi-author series. I'm hoping that they do it again in the future!
