The Last Duke 1797 Club by Jess Michaels
When Christopher “Kit” Collins’ father dies, he is devastated, but he must swiftly take on the title of Duke of Kingsacre and all the responsibility that comes with it. Including the care of his very young illegitimate half-sister, who is now his ward. He is very upset when he discovers the governess his father hired for the child just before his death is Sarah Carlton.
Sarah is equally disturbed by the arrival of her new employer, as she and Kit once had an unpleasant encounter when she was at her lowest point. But since she has no other place to go, she can only hope he will not sack her. Thanks to the adoration of his sister, he does not and the two enter into a wary truce because they both care for the child.
A truce that explodes one passionate night after a nearly tragic accident. Comfort leads to more and soon the two are engaged in an affair. But when danger comes to threaten the child they both love, they must overcome their deeply rooted mistrust and work together to keep her safe. And perhaps find a way to make a family together.
I received this book from Netgalley in return for a honest review, all thoughts are my own.
So here we are the final book in this wonderful series. For me each book has being part of a family and I will miss each and everyone of them...but if we as readers ask nicely then maybe Ms Michaels might include them in other books. In this book we meet Kit (Christopher) and Sarah, and also the most charming little girl Phoebe.
We've all being at a gathering, had a little too much to drink and said something that we shouldn't have, in these modern times we tend to ignore what was said...but this wasn't the case for Sarah, because you see Sarah had set her sights on Simon and as we know he and Meg fell in love. So when Sarah went to have a word with Meg, and remember Sarah has had some punch so her tongue was a little loose...but unfortunately for her, Kit heard everything.
Overall this was a brilliant book and a fitting end to this wonderful series.
I will give this book 5/5 stars. You can now buy the book from Amazon UK and all other retailers.
