    I LOVE Darcy's historical romances!

    I LOVE Darcy's historical romances! This book read very smoothly. I was engaged from the very beginning, and I especially liked Lionel. I got to like him more as the story went on, and I really felt for him and hoped he could find happiness. Conversely, I was not a fan of Emmaline at first. In my opinion, I felt her actions and venom towards Lionel were a bit overkill, especially given the situation she put him in. As the story went on, I liked her more,and ultimately, I admired her relentless protection of Lionel. And can I just say, holy mystery!!! At about 40% through, a liiiiiiiittle tiny part of the book hinted at a major plot twist. Just a hint. I was completely sucked in by then, and I couldn't wait to see the resolution! While this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. Although, it does include cameos from characters in previous books, and while I've read some of them, I can't wait to go back and read all of their stories! I can't wait to read Darcy's next book!!! (I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)

    A Unique story ...A must read

    'The Duke of Danger' by Darcy Burke is Book Six in "The Untouchables" series...I LOVE Darcy's historical romances!... her books r simply excellent... This was a very different story, meaning where the heroine marries the man who killed her husband? set in a regency era ....the subject itself was intriguing.... Lionel Maitland, the Marquess of Axbridge is a troubled man,he has fought three duels, killing two men. He has earned the nickname 'The Duke of Danger.' He is a man driven by honour and the deaths way heavy on him. The last duel with Geoffrey Townsend has left Axbridge stricken with guilt. Lady Emmaline Townsend is d widow of d man dat lionel killed in a duel .... Widowed and destitute, Lady Emmaline Townsend must marry the man of her parents choosing, a man she detests hence she strike a devil’s bargain with lionel and both agree to a marriage of convenience....the story really takes off from here. They are attracted to each other, their passions , hate, confusion, guilt,all r factors which make there love tested over a period of time .. The book is well-written with moments of humor and suspense,the pace was fast,i was totally engrossed in d plot ... Darcy's stories r always inspiring ...a uniqueness in every book... the woman in her books r very strong facing all circumstances & coming up winning ...it is quiet forward of her to present bold woman in a Regency Era where women were not at all independent to take there decisions... the men in her books r also gallant heroes who respect women ... the Romance in her books is escallating, sex is sizzling .... the presentation of d scenes r life size...always loved her way of writing a story...thank u darcy again for a superbly written book...i recommend dis book...go for it I recd a ARC copy of dis book ...this is my honest & voluntary Review...

    Historical Romance

    Lionel has dueled thrice and twice have his opponents died. As a man of honor he feels the deaths as a weight that lingers and presses down. He offers to help Emmaline when her husband succumbs to his wound but she sends him away only to call him back suddenly. Not wanting to marry the man her parents want to marry her off to she coerces Lionel into a marriage of convenience that will not provide Lionel with heirs. But, as with all good romances like this…love grows slowly between the two and a HEA is achieved. Thank you to the author and NetGalley for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars

    Another Great Story!

    The Duke of Danger is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone book. This is a story of Lionel Maitland, Marquess of of Axbridge, a man given the moniker of the Duke of Danger unfairly due to circumstances. He has been involved in several duels with two men being killed by him, the last due to the opponent, Viscount Geoffrey being without honor. Unfortunately, His death leaves his widow, Emmaline Townsend, almost penniless and she has to return to her parents home. Can you imagine after being married and independent having to move back home? Even worse after her year of mourning, her parents want her to remarry a very unappealing man. Desperate she approaches Lionel, “her husband’s murderer” and basically guilts him into an arrangement to marry her with conditions.This story has a little of it all! Darcy Burke draws the reader in with intense feelings, secrets and the attraction of the characters and does not let you go until the last page!! Read this book to find out what happens! Another amazing story by this author!

    Loved it

    'The Duke of Danger' by Darcy Burke is Book Six in "The Untouchables" series. This is the story of Lionel Maitland, Marquess of Axbridge and Lady Emmaline Townsend. I have read the other books in this series (and loved them!) but feel you can easily make this a standalone book. Lionel is dubbed with the nickname "Duke of Danger" by the Town. Lionel doesn't fare well have each duel. Although he is left a left with his life, it has effected his feelings. This has sent him into a tails spend with his life. Emmaline is left a widow after her husband attempted to duel with Lionel. Emmaline was furious with Lionel and hasn't been shy about him knowing it. Now that her year of mourning is getting near to being over, her parents are going to force her hand to marry. Emmaline feels that since it is Lionel's fault that she is left a widow with a husband debt and a wish to have her freedom..she confronts Lionel. Emmaline insist that Lionel marry her and then allows her to live her own life. Emmaline does come off with a strong one side point of view but she is slowly shown that Lionel isn't as guilty as she though. Another great story by Ms. Burke! "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
