Brill #Historical #RomanticSuspense – The Return of the Disappearing Duke by Lara Temple #Giveaway #BlogTour

I was so happy to gain a place on the blog tour for this historical romance – it’s a great addition to the series! Read on to find out more about this book and its author as well as my review and the opportunity to enter the rafflecopter giveaway to have a chance to win a copy of the book for yourself!  



A scarred mercenary…Or the Disappearing Duke of Greybourne?

Rafe has spent years running from his true identity. He’s a lone wolf, living far from aristocratic England and his violent father. Then unconventional Cleopatra Osbourne requests his protection as she crosses the Egyptian desert. In Cleo he discovers a fellow outcast—and a fierce desire! Cleo must return to London, and here lies Rafe’s dilemma—because following his heart means claiming the title he’s avoided for so long!


My Review:

This is an action packed historical romance adventure, a real page turner taking the reader across the Egyptian deserts, on a perilous sea journey and back to London where danger still lies in wait!

When a stranger asks for help escaping from the men who are chasing after them, mercenary Rafe Grey can’t resist – especially as the person is an English woman attempting to disguise herself as a young man. However, helping her will put their lives in danger and, after crossing the desert with her, he’s determined to ensure she’s safely back in London. The downside to that is it will mean claiming his inheritance . . . . he ran away to join the army and escape his tempestuous father when he was sixteen but now his father is dead and it is time for him to take up the mantle of the Dukedom he’s inherited, but there’s adventures to be had and love to be found before that will happen!

This is a brilliant addition to this series and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I believe it would work as a standalone but the stories in the series do involve many of the same characters and follow on so I recommend reading them all!

Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my copy of this book which I have read and reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
