    Fantastic Historical Romance!

    Darcy Burke has done it again, fed my addiction to historical romance! A Duke Is Never Enough is an outstanding treat, well-written and loaded with spectacular characters. Marcus, Marquess of Ripley gives his cousin a swat in front of bystanders. When his cousin goes into hiding, the rumor circulates that Marcus has murdered him. Phoebe helped Marcus stop the bleeding after his tussle with his cousin. Marcus and Phoebe's story is packed with drama, humor, sexy bits and suspense. I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to the next book by Darcy Burke. A Duke Is Never Enough is book 2 of The Spitfire Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I loved Phoebe and Marcus!

    This story had many familiar elements that I love about historical romance and yet it felt like a breath of fresh air. The women of The Spitfire Society series seem like people that I could become friends with and the world that Darcy Burke created is such an interesting one. I love the idea of female characters breaking stereotypes thrust upon them within the confines of society, or, on literature level - a genre. So like I mentioned before, this book felt very refreshing and I loved seeing Phoebe being bold in her quest for independence and the right to live the life SHE wanted. Marcus, who had been a side character in the first installment of this series, was also a nice surprise. I always appreciate a hero who is a goner for his love right from the beginning. More than that, in this story we got to glimpse underneath the rakish surface and see all the layers below. It turned out Marcus was more than a libertine (and a good friend) we'd come to know in "Never Have I Ever With a Duke" and he's noble, loyal and honest as well as generous and considerate. I particularly liked how mindful he was in making sure that Phoebe was comfortable in his presence and that she was okay with everything they were doing. All in all, I found him extremely likeable. The romance between Phoebe and Marcus, which started off with a nice meet cute and progressed to (unlikely) friendship (which in turn progressed naturally to an affair), was extremely satisfactory. I thought they had great chemistry and their scenes together were just a delight to read. To sum up, "A Duke is Never Enough" is a book of good pacing, great female friendships, romance woven with a bit of mystery crime and feels. I cannot wait for the final book of this series and I'll be definitely paying more attention to Darcy Burke's writing from now on - her brand of historical romance fits just right for me.

    Such a delightful, heartwarming romance!

    Marcus takes on his swindling cousin, determined to protect his family's name and reputation. He's nearly completely sidetracked by the beautiful yet unavailable Phoebe, a woman who revels in her spinsterhood and has no use for a man, much less a husband. That is, until Marcus eloquently describes what a kiss should be - and let me assure you, reading that paragraph alone is well worth the price of this book. Intrigued, Phoebe starts to let her guard down just as Marcus begins to make headway on stopping his cousin. Everything comes to a screeching halt when the cousin is found murdered, Marcus is the prime suspect, and Phoebe is his only alibi. This was a delightful, charming story, captivating right from the start and filled with an abundance of humor, heat, and heart. The author skillfully weaves all the various story threads together into a surprising conclusion and triumphant HEA. An absolute masterpiece that I highly recommend. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

    Historical Romance

    A Duke is Never Enough by Darcy Burke The Spitfire Society #2 Marcus Raleigh, Marquess or Ripley, is furious with his cousin for fleecing men of their money through a bogus investment scheme. When he confronts Drobbit there is a scuffle that sees spinster Phoebe Lennox coming to staunch the blood. The two are attracted but neither has any intention of ever marrying and so they eventually decide to be friends...but...there is potential for more...if they get their ducks in a row. What I liked: * Phoebe’s intellect, independent spirit and willingness to pursue what she feels is best for herself * Marcus’s warmth, sense of right and wrong and the spark and sizzle he and Phoebe brought to the story * The way the mystery of who killed Drobbit is revealed * Wondering if women really had the freedom in 1819 that Phoebe had in this story What I did not like: * Sainsbury...for more than one reason * Drobbit...though I wondered if he might have been redeemable if he had lived * Pretty much what I was meant not to like ;) Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more by this author? Yes Thank you to the Author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4-5 Stars
