    Together, they’re sweet and clueless and adorable

    A destitute duke willing to do whatever it takes to save his family legacy. A penniless Miss desperate for a wealthy match to save her family from debtors’ prison. They’re the farthest thing from an answer to each other’s financial woes, but the heart wants what it wants. Graham and Arabella are refreshingly different characters for historical romance. She’s spirited and independent while being devoted to her family’s wellbeing. He’s a duke who grew up without knowing the first thing about how to be a peer himself. Together, they’re sweet and clueless and adorable. I would have loved to have seen a solution where they achieve all of their goals, but I like the realism of the sacrifices they make. I look forward to seeing what in store for the other Spitfires. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author through NetGalley.

    Enjoyable read

    I received an advanced reader’s copy of this book. Graham and Arabella are attracted to each other from the moment they meet. Unfortunately, they’re both penniless and each needs to find wealthy people to marry. Neither desires a marriage of convenience so they join forces to attempt to recover their fortunes. The story has a nice twist as far as the reveal with regards to Arabella’s family and Graham’s fortunes. Arabella’s and Graham’s perspectives and behavior were modern compared to the societal expectations of the time period. I enjoyed this story. The Marquess of Ripley is an intriguing character and I’m looking forward to reading more about him.

    Historical Romance

    Never Have I Ever With A Duke by Darcy Burke The Spitfire Society #1 Having set themselves on the shelf but preferring the term spitfire to spinster a group of women created The Spitfire Club. In the club, from what I can deduce, Jane Pemberton and Phoebe Lennox are definite members with Arabella Stoke a friend and potential member...if she didn’t have to find a wealthy husband to right her father’s monetary woes. When Arabella, in disguise walking her mother’s dog, meets Graham Kinsley, new Duke or Halstead, there is definitely attraction though neither realized who the other was nor knew they both were in need of money. They continue to meet throughout the book and eventually agree to work together to find the scoundrel that conned funds out of Arabella’s father and Graham’s uncle. They spend a bit of time together in the park, on a picnic, at parties and sleuthing. Not all of their time is innocent but neither really expects a future although both would choose to have one together if money were not an issue. What I liked: * Arabella: her loyalty to family and her ability to reach out for what she wanted. * Graham: his willingness to look for the dastard who took the estate’s money and his ability to (eventually) see what was most important in his life * The introduction to a new series with glimpses of who might show up in future books * Glimpses of characters from previous books * The HEA that the two eventually found with one another * Ripley – I want to see more of him perhaps in the next book What I didn’t like: * Tibbord: the scoundrel that did not even use his own name and showed no remorse * The weakness of Arabella’s father * The feeling that I was being told the story rather than being in the midst of it I am not sure that I fully believed that Arabella would have been as open and free and able to come and go as she did without a chaperone. I did enjoy the story and look forward to reading more in the series. Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

    Delightful Story

    The title alone made me start thinking about the possibilites that Darcy Burke would use to enchant me in this story. Oh yes, I always know when I start one of her books, I should make time because it will be hard to put down! An exciting start to a new series, The Spitfire Society, grabbed me quickly from the first page. An unexpected encounter between the main characters involving a sword and a biscuit had me smiling at what would happen next! Isn't it always the case of a heir needing money for his bankrupt estate or a daughter needing to save her family by marrying for money that meet and find an attraction? Well such is the case with Graham Kinsley who had just inherited a dukedom. Well the title at least because the estate owes a lot of money and he needs to marry for money. Or recover the money the former duke had invested in a terrible scheme. But who was it? Arabella Stoke is in the same situation with her father ill and only her mother and she trying to keep everything running with little funds due to somebody having swindled her father. As these two find each other and eventually learn they have a lot in common due to having their funds taken by the same swindler, they set out to find him and try to set things right. It seems though they may find more along the way than what they initally seek. But how could these two almost desitute people come together? An exciting story that I highly recommend and cannot wait for more in this series!
