Publisher's Summary

Dear Listener:The Sherbrooke family saga continues with James and Jason Sherbrooke, identical male twins who look exactly like their beautiful Aunt Melissande, and not at all like their father, the earl, which riles him no end.James, 28 minutes older than his brother, is the heir. He is solid, is James. He's a student of astronomy, rides like a centaur, and, unlike his brother, Jason, enjoys learning the ropes of managing his father's estates.He no longer sows excessive wild oats, as his neighbor, Corrie Tybourne Barrett, a brat he's known since she was three-years-old, looks forward to doing since she turned 18. When she nearly shoves him off a cliff, sneering all the while, James hauls off and spanks her.A promising start. Then, unfortunately, the earl, Douglas Sherbrooke, is shot at. This leads to Georges Cadoudal, a Frenchman in the employ of the English war ministry with whom Douglas had dealings with some years before. But Cadoudal died in 1815, 15 years before. Were there children who might want revenge against Douglas? But the question is why: Georges and Douglas parted friends, at least Douglas believed that they had.Adventures compound; Corrie hurls herself into the thick of things. As for Jason, not quite a half an hour younger, he loves horses, wants to start a stud farm, still sows more oats than a man should be allowed, but finally meets a girl who stops him in his tracks. And then what happens?You will have to listen to the book to find out. I hope you enjoy yourself. The characters are rich, colorful, and a hoot to boot. The mystery will confound you.Catherine Coulter

"A clever surprise ending wraps up the mystery subplot neatly and will ensure that many readers return for the next entry in Coulter's Sherbrooke saga." (Publishers Weekly)

Entertaining as usual

Well written as usual. Quite a twist with terribly attractive men, coming out parties, and shooting and revenge throughout the book. I recommend it as a good read.

started out slow

But the story picked up and I really enjoyed it. I listened to all the other books in this series and am looking forward to more.
