The Lost Duke of Wyndham by Julia Quinn

When Jack Audley decides to rob this particularly carriage he never realized how his life would change. The old lady inside the carriage decides that he is her grandson. Jack is wearing a mask so he thinks she is batty. Her companion, Grace Eversleigh, thinks the same thing. And then the old lady, dowager Duchess of Wyndham, says the name Cavendish. That was Jack's birth name. He is stunned. He doesn't let the dowager know and lets them go.

The next day Grace is still relieving the outrageous evening before. The part she can't get past is the kiss the highwayman stole from her. Then she sees him at the end of the drive. He leaves but before he can get back to his inn, he is kidnapped by none other than the dowager! He admits to them that is father was her son.

They all set out for Ireland to prove his parents were married. But when it is proven then what happens to the current Duke, Thomas? Jack has all these conflicting feelings. But the one that he is most sure about is his love for Grace.

Another great book by Julia Quinn. The next book in the series, Thomas's story, is Mr. Cavendish, I Presume. The book's release date is September 30, 2008.
