In 1810 Lord Charles de Lacey, heir to a dukedom, ignores responsibilities for decadence.  However, he is shockingly awakened from his hedonism when a blackmailer demands payments or he and his siblings will lose their entitlements due to the potential exposure of his father’s scandalous behavior.

 

As manager of her brother’s businesses, Tessa Neville is in Bath looking into whether he should invest in a canal.  She and Charles meet and it is hate at first sight.  However, Charles suspects Tessa is in league with the person he suspects is extorting funds from his family as she meets with this reprobate.  As such he follows her everywhere until they compare notes and realize they suspect duplicity by the same scoundrel.

 

The final Truth About the Duke Regency romance (see Blame It On Bath) is a pleasant historical starring two wonderful protagonists engaged in a gender war.  Although there is too much reiteration of the overarching theme, fans will enjoy Lord Charles getting his comeuppance and hope that the blackmailer does too.
