  • Captivating journey of the heart.

    I love Darcy Burke. She's one author who knows no fear when it comes to emotion. At it's strongest, love puts us at our most vulnerable. Jane and Anthony are proof that despite the odds, the adventure is worth the risk. A Duke Will Never Do finds beauty in exposing the fragility of life and love. It's unpredictability makes for a hauntingly, raw yet always captivating journey of the heart.

  • Funny, flirty, flawed hero

    The story get straight to the point with the discovery of an unconscious man on the front doorstep within the first few pages. This sets the pace for the rest of the story where events roll from one to another. Anthony, Lord Colton, is wracked with guilt over his parents deaths and his own connection to that. He still hasn’t done anything about his guilt or grief, unless drinking to excess counts. He is found on Jane’s doorstep one morning. Jane’s patience and good nature bring Anthony back from the brink and shows him an alternative future. Anthony offers Jane a favour for her helping him to recover. She denies the need at first, until she decides that he could help her intimately. The conversation between Miss Pemberton and Lord Colton about what she could expect to happen if her proposition came to bare was frank and amusing, as each of them was slightly embarrassed and enthralled at the same time. The two of them engage in many conversations which allow them to dally in innuendo and flirtation. Anthony doesn’t think he is good enough for Jane and tries to stay away from her. Jane has other ideas. She has he most patience I’ve come across in a character for a while. She continues to offer help even when he is falling back into bad habits. The dialogue between these two is wonderfully real. Humour, sarcasm, factual exchanges and sincerity are all included. I was a little disappointed that the mystery of his landing on her doorstep wasn’t explored. I did, however, really enjoy this story despite this. I do hope that the Spitfire Society gets a greater portion of the next book. It seemed to be very much in the background in this book.

  • Fun, Historical Romance

    This book opens up with a handsome man unconscious on Jane Pemberton's doorstep. From there, you know it has to be good. Jane quickly comes to realize she recognizes him as her friend, Sarah's, brother Anthony. Anthony has had a difficult year after the death of his parents and some other personal issues. Jane, herself, has not had it easy having recently declared herself a spinster and moving out of her parents house to live out her days on her own. The two come together and find they have more in common than they might think. Burke writes a fun, sexy tale about two people who are feeling lost and alone. It is a joy to see them come together and reconcile their pasts in their own ways. While this book is part of a larger series, it reads well as a standalone. I would definitely recommend. Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC of this book. The opinions here are my own.

  • Such a beautiful story about the power of love!

    What good is a good reputation if it denies you freedom? What good is a bad reputation if people refuse to be disappointed in you? Anthony has been drinking his grief and guilt away for almost a year since the death of his parents. Jane is adjusting to her newly-declared spinsterhood, relishing her freedom but still wondering just how much it's going to cost her in the end. When a badly-beaten and thoroughly sloshed Anthony lands on her doorstep, she is determined to nurse him back to health and exact a very specific payment for her services in return. I loved this slow-burn romance very much. Anthony is in so much pain, both physical and emotional, and I was charmed by Jane's patient attention to him and her willingness to stand up to him and force him to confront the harsh truths he's been hiding from. The story is complex and layered, with surprising connections, extortion, ruinous rumors, and even a couple adorable kittens. Every bit of it works brilliantly together to create an enchanting story that captivated me from the very start. The HEA was so heartwarming I nearly cried. I highly recommend this for all fans of regency romances. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

  • Quick Read With a Nearly Perfect Duke

    3.5, rounded up to 4. I loved the idea of this book. I hadn't read the previous two, but the Spitfire Society sounded interesting and like a new take on a pretty well saturated genre. I absolutely adored the male character in this book. He was fully developed and really kept the arc of the story running. I was a bit disappointed with Jane, however, and given the circumstances I wish we had gotten to know her a bit more! I wanted to know more about her season and about her decision to join the Spitfire Society. The story itself was really well played. I enjoyed the plot of potential scandal and the mystery of how the Duke ended up on her door step. If you're looking for a quick, attention grabbing novel that is as steamy as it is intriguing, this is the book for you. I thank NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
