    I really loved this book!!!

    I really loved this book!!! I'll admit that I'm not that educated on the time period, and I felt West's "occupation" was a bit odd, but I appreciated that it was sort of a "measuring stick" to show how he changed when he met Ivy. I felt lots of emotions for Ivy, and I liked her independence. Her insistence on keeping things proper made the tension between she and West absolutely delicious, and when they were alone together, even in passing, sparks. Lotsa sparks. I especially loved the Blind Man's Bluff scene :) This was the first Darcy book I've read, and it absolutely won't be the last. She did an excellent job of keeping me turning the pages, BEYOND eager to see how everything would get resolved. I really loved this story!!! (I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)

    Loved this story

    'The Duke of Desire' by Darcy Burke is book Four in the "The Untouchables" series. This is the story of Ivy Breckenridge and Sebastian Westgate, Duke of Clare. I have read the other books in this series but feel this is easily a standalone book. Ivy has settled into be a companion while her close friends have married and started a family. Ivy has issue with men and at first it would seem hard to get past. West has a reputation of 'helping' married women by sleeping with them. So at first he doesn't come off as a hero you would want but that doesn't take long to change. I ended up seeing how well these two were made for each other. It was great seeing how much Ivy started to change with West and how her outlook became more hopeful. West to needed someone like Ivy who brought out another side to him. I have fallen in love with this series and Ms. Burke writing so this was a joy to read! "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

    A Fiery Rebirth

    Companion Ivy Breckenridge is a woman with a mysterious past, even to her closest friends. As the final member of the League of Invincibles to be unmarried, her friends want her to find the same happiness they has all found. Ivy still finds comfort and safety in her unmarried state and finds marriage deplorable. The Duke of Desire, Sebastian Westgate, is a notorious rake with a penchant for affairs with married women. He enjoys the ladies and helps them with their marriages. Both Westgate and Ivy can agree that marriage is not for them, but neither can deny their mutual attraction to each other. In the fourth Untouchables book, we finally learn about Ivy's past. She has remade herself from a terrible, tragic, past. I could not put this one down. IT is by far the best book in the series. I'm curious, though, to see if the League of Invincibles will add to their numbers. Guess I will have to wait for The Duke of Defiance to find out. I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

    Great addition to the series!

    THE DUKE OF DESIRE by Darcy Burke is another great Historical Romance in her "The Untouchables" series. While, book 4, it can be read as a stand alone. This is the story of Ivy Breckenridge and Sebastian Westgate, Duke of Clare, known as the Duke of passion. Passionate, sexy, dangerous to your heart, secrets, hidden desires, resilience, and the power of finding a true love. A powerful, emotional story, were the characters have many depths and emotional baggage. Sebastian at first doesn't seem much like a hero to me, but he does redeem himself. Ivy has much baggage especially with men. Together, these two make a perfect couple. At first, I was a bit put off, but as usual Ms. Burke brings the reader around, quiet brilliantly, and successfully, I might add. Masterfully written with great characterization, her eye to the dramatic and her desire to show readers a different side to Regency Romance with a flourish toward characters, secrets, and romance, brings forth an excellent Historical romance. Must read addition to "The Untouchables" series! I received a complimentary copy. Rating: 4 Heat rating: Hot Reviewed by: AprilR

    Delightful

    Akira Ayres lives in a time and place where her native Scotsman and the English who rule are in constant battle. A fact brought close to home with the recent uprising. An uprising that has Akira searching the battleground for any wounded she can help. What she doesn’t anticipate is a race across the Highlands with a handsome wounded Scot. As she works to heal him she finds she must protect her heart; especially when she finds out who her patient really is. Georgie, Duke of Gordon, knows if he stays wounded on the battlefield he’s as good as dead. His chance to escape appears in the form of a beautiful healer. Keeping his true identity a secret is for her safety though he has to admit that being treated as someone other than a Duke is refreshing. The more time he spends with his beautiful healer the more he realizes he will do anything to protect her and keep her by his side. Will Geordie’s past and Akira’s heritage stand in the way of happily ever after? Adventure, danger, misunderstandings and haunted pasts all rolled into a delicious tale for my first full length story by the talented Amy Jarecki. It will definitely not be my last!
