Dear readers of The Duke’s Sons series,
We’ve reached volume three, Lord Sebastian’s Secret, out on January 3. The military Gresham brother’s story turned out to be quite a romp. On a visit to his betrothed’s family, Cavalry major Sebastian faces a plethora of impertinent pugs, ubiquitous younger sisters, and a prospective father-in-law dedicated to ancient Saxons and arcane philosophy. Very much not Sebastian’s forte, for several reasons. Fortunately, there’s the lovely Georgina, who makes any amount of adaptation and effort worthwhile. Sebastian would do anything for her, and he very nearly does!
I really like the Gresham family. I’m feeling sad right now as I finish the fifth and final volume about them. I kind of hate to let them go. Should I consider revisiting the clan in future? Hmm. Is there anyone from the stories you’d really like to see again? Get in touch and let me know.
And thanks so much for reading!

What a miracle it is that he's found the perfect bride. Lady Georgina Stane is beautiful, witty, and brilliantly intelligent. Sebastian is head over heels in love, proud as a peacock, and terrified. If she finds out, he'll lose her love forever.

REVIEW: LORD SEBASTIAN'S SECRET (THE DUKE'S SONS) BY JANE ASHFORD
Lord Sebastian's Secret by Jane Ashford
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ordinary breeds extraordinary. What that means to me is that a person is so much more than the skills they lack. They are special because of who they are. In the long run a pure heart and an open mind are all that matters. Sebastian was a smart man but he failed to see that because of a misinterpreted flaw. He was a man of action. He could create a plan and carry it out but with intelligence and skill but when it came to understanding the reading, writing and curriculum, he felt like fish out of water. Lord Sebastian's Secret deals with a prevalent subject in a time when not much was known about it. Still to this day dyslexia is still look at as a weakness, in our ever changing world. Ms. Ashford examines the subject with gentleness and a great deal of insight. Through the eyes of Sebastian, the author allows the change to understand the frustration and shame of an individual dealing with the not knowing and the fear of being different. Lord Sebastian's Secret is an eye opener. The message is clear: "Every journey is unique, but we all have struggles to overcome." Sebastian was stronger than his fear and with the love of a good woman like Georgiana, he learned that he was more than his disability.
