Waiting on Wednesday: What the Duke Desires by Sabrina Jeffries

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I've been a fan of Sabrina Jeffries's work since high school and I'm always looking forward to her next book. That being said, I'm particularly excited about her new series, The Duke's Men. Dominick Manton was introduced in Ms. Jeffries's last Hellions of Halstead Hall book, 'Twas the Night After Christmas, and though Manton isn't the hero of What the Duke Desire, he's part of this series which is reason enough for me to be on the edge of my seat waiting.

Book Description (from Sabrina Jeffries's Website):

Maximilian Cale, the Duke of Lyons, accepted long ago that his kidnapped brother was dead. When a cryptic note from investigator Tristan Bonnaud claims otherwise, Max seeks out Tristan’s sister, Lisette—and is infuriated to learn that Tristan has also mysteriously vanished. Have the siblings perpetrated an elaborate hoax? Or is the fiercely protective beauty as innocent as she claims them to be?

Fearful that the powerful duke will destroy Tristan’s career in his zeal for the truth, the clever Lisette convinces Max to accompany her to Paris in a joint search for their loved ones. But their journey takes a seductive twist when they pose as an ordinary husband and wife—not an English duke with a tarnished family name and the illegitimate daughter of a viscount—and discover an exhilarating passion free from the damning secrets of the past. With the line between danger and desire enticingly blurred, they discover that some mysteries, like those of the heart, are answered tenfold in the bliss of a true and trusting love.
