Following a business conference, Kells Berkley receives a phone call from his roommate, Bryant. Bryant has invited Cydney Nash, his girlfriend from Boston, to move into their flat while Bryant is away on a trip. When Kells and Cydney meet for the first time, it is as if a thunderbolt has hit.
Kells and Cydney feel an immediate attraction although they both attempt to hold their passions in check. Cydney has no idea that Kells is president of his company, is immensely wealthy and is the son of a duke. Meanwhile, Cydney has secrets of her own. Kells decides that Bryant is not the right husband for Cydney and sets out to keep Bryant away.
THE THIRD SON is an immensely powerful story of two people who obviously seem suited for each other, but their families have their own ideas as to who they should marry. I found the book to be one where I became wrapped up in the story and had no difficulty in conjuring an image of the characters as they developed. There is envy, geed, betrayal, and even murder to be found in this book. Readers will love it.
