Overview

~Finalist for NECRWA Readers Choice Award~
~Finalist for the Golden Quill~

He's a duke in disguise. She is his ex-lover and has an even bigger secret. (Hint: it involves a baby...)

One wicked night of passion results in life-altering consequences for innocent bar maid Maggie Goode. Years later, she's a respectable widow, but her troubles are far from over. With debts looming, she must salvage her fossil shop to support herself and her beloved daughter. Fate leads her to a man who can save her business...but he's also the biggest mistake from her past.

The product of an ill-fated union between an English aristocrat and a Chinese merchant's daughter, Rhys Cavendish, the Duke of Ranelagh and Somerville ("Ransom"), hides his secret pain behind a rakish façade. Yet he cannot hide from his debts, and now he's on the run from cutthroat moneylenders--and the necessity of marrying for convenience. His last hope: the inheritance his uncle left him in the form of a treasure map. When he goes to hire help for his expedition, he comes face to face with a woman he's never forgotten...and a daughter he never knew he had.

Dangerous secrets smolder between Maggie and Rhys, but neither can resist a scorching reunion. Personal demons and hidden enemies rise to threaten their passionate romance. Will they defy all odds to find the ultimate treasure: a love for all time?

Another wonderful read by Grace Callaway! I have loved reading about of the Characters since Emma! Rhys has a one night stand with Maggie Goode that resulted in a baby. When she realized she was with child, Mr. Foley offered to marry her and raise the child as his. Nine years later Maggie and her sister in law Patty are trying to save Foley’s emporium and who happens to walk into her life after 9 years but Rhys the father of her child. Rhys is at his wits end, he owes 100K pounds to money lenders and he’s hiding. When his uncle dies, he leaves Rhys his small estate and an adventure he will never forget. His Uncle Horatio left him a letter and clues to a treasure he found that is worth over 500K pounds. He requires the help of his former lover to help him, she is reluctant because she doesn’t want him to know Glory is his daughter. As she reluctantly agrees, there feelings for each other grow! A great adventure awaits them all!

I loved Maggie and Rhys story!! After sharing one night of passion with Rhys, Maggie can never forget what they shared because of the gift she received 9 months later. She married to cover her disgrace and is now a widow. When Rhys comes back in her life, she wants nothing to do with him, but he needs her help in securing his future. Can she resist his charms a second time? I really loved watching these two come together. The bantering between the two had me laughing out loud. I'm so excited to see what Callaway comes up with for the next book in the series!

This is a fabulous story of how love can conquer all, with some adventure thrown in. Rhys is a down trodden Duke, Maggie is a dedicated woman with a rough past, but together they overcome the odds. Great story from a great author. I have read all her books and have yet to be disappointed.

A highly charged story with great characters that will take you through on an adventure and back again. Having a past history, Maggie and Ransom have a child he knows nothing about. But when fate brings them back together, he for her help in finding a treasure, the old feelings surface. The writing brings the characters to life and I felt emotionally tied to them as their story unfolded. Rhys had been a character in a previous story and from what I can gather seemed not the best of heroes. But here, he seemed to redeem some of his prior actions and he and Maggie sizzled in their relationship. Intrigue, suspense, a mystery and a host of locations and characters, kept me on the edge waiting to find out what happened as I turned the pages. Now I am anxious to read the next in the series and hope we don't have to wait too long! Well done. Lori Dykes
