Book Review: If the Viscount Falls
It's here! The final book in Sabrina Jeffries' Duke's Men series. It's the one I've been waiting for: Dominic and Jane.
Years ago, Dominic ended his engagement with Jane because he couldn't give her the life he thought she deserved. After years of waiting, Jane finally becomes engaged to another man, yet needs Dom to help her in the quest to find her missing cousin. As the two begin their search, they find that neither of them has quite gotten over the other one. However, Jane refuses to give him to "Dom the Almighty". And Dom still believes that he saved Jane from a horrible life by not marrying her. Will these two ever work it out?
As usual, Ms. Jeffries writes a terrific story! The scenes between Dom and Jane are entertaining, amusing, and hot. You can feel the fiery passion they both try to hide. Dom's interactions with his siblings are great too. My favorite scene is the "insipid kiss" scene. The passion between them builds and as a reader, this is one of those great scenes you look forward to in a romance novel. While I am sad to see this series end, I think the author ended this series on a high note. I only hope to see the Duke's Men again.
One of the things that causes me to realize I found a great author - I read part of this book while on the treadmill. I actually didn't realize that 34 minutes had passed as I was so enthralled with this book! Now that's a good story!
*I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
