A lady should be the image of elegance and calm, but those words have never applied to Mercy, Duchess of Romsey. A widow and mother, Mercy is lonely and floundering to keep the estate afloat. When she discovers the existence of Leopold Randall, her husband’s estranged cousin, Mercy immediately offers to help him locate his missing siblings if he helps her return the estate to order.

Leopold has returned to Hampshire for only one purpose—to learn the fate of his missing siblings. Unfortunately, the current duchess is clueless and out of her depth. Her struggle tugs at Leopold’s sense of duty and her bold nature tempts him unbearably. When Leopold discovers their lives are forever entwined, he vows to protect Mercy and her innocent son.

Heather Boyd wrote an intetesting tale of secrets and family. Leopold was blackmailed by the old Duke. He was forced to leave England, his brothers, and sister behind to make his way through India and wealth. He only returned when he heard that his wretched uncle and his cousin were dead. He hoped that he could discover what happened to his siblings. Mercy was a widow. She was a young widow with a child. Since her father-in-law and her husband died, she was in charge. The steward quit and running the estate was beyond her. Now she faced a threat to her son and her lack of any plan ovewhelmed her. Leopold came and she instantly knew that this one was different. She was attracted to him, like no other man but one. Mercy had to have help and she had to convince Leopold that he was her help. I normally hate cliffhangers, but I am not mad. There is another story but Ms. Boyd did write an ending I could live with. I will try to find the other's story. I do recommend the book for mature adults because of the explicit sex scenes.

the mistakes with the incorrect possessives are maddening! The Randals are just the Randels, not the Randal's every blessed time the name is used. (They may be Randells, I do not recall. Problems with use of nominative case as objects of prepositions, poor punctuation, run-on sentences all detract significantly from the readers enjoyment and are a real shame to an otherwise decent book. Please, please get an editor who knows that more than one blackberry is two or more blackberries. The computer cannot replace basic language skills. The author and her writing would be immeasureably well-served by a good editor.

Loved this book! 5 stars! I love series books and this first book has the potential to be a "great" series. I have read Ms. Boyd's prior three books Chills, Broken, and Charity. I have enjoyed all of them immensely. I just finished "Engaging the Enemy" and was hoping book 2 was already available. Can not wait to see what happens next! I will be waiting, but not patiently! Loved this book! I recommend it highly! Leopold can come and rescue me anytime! Loved all the characters. Well developed story line. Please hurry with book 2 (Forsaking the Prize).

I enjoyed the first book in the series enough that I will definitely read the rest of the series! The lead characters are not overpowering, but there is an underlying story that I must get to regarding the Randals! I hope the next 3 books are as enjoyable to read!

The story was interesting as were the characters, but the ending is rushed and unfinished.

Tightly written story with engaging characters---already looking forward to the next in this series! Heather Boyd creates people with whom I would love to share tea!

Loved the two main characters. Highly recommend.

A little mystery and suspense mixed with a romance made me keep reading. I might read the next book in the series. I didn't love the female characters. The main character, Mercy, was a bit all over the place. She just didn't seem consistent and I never felt that I understood her. Mostly a devoted stay-at-home mom, usually a helpless duchess barely capable of running her life and home, and improbably forward and scheming as she aggressively pursued sex with a new acquaintance.

Well written

Even though the female is the pursuer our male is still very manly and take charge kind of guy.

I enjoyed most of the book. At times the conversation and thought process did not make sense.
