    A gem

    I received an advanced copy of this book and chose to submit a review ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ 💋💋 Is it possible to build a relationship, a marriage ,on lies and deception? The answer is here. Darcy has given us another gem of a book , she’s pulled off a brilliant plot that twists and turns , it’s moving , fun and emotional, reading of the relationship that’s created between father and son is nothing short of heartbreaking, inspiring and a pleasure to witness. I couldn’t shake the feelings of love and devotion between the two . I loved Verity a strong woman , devoted mother and Duchess, you so wanted her to be happy , and she really deserved some love and tenderness. This is a great book for those of us with tender romantic hearts , We love to see two , or in this case three people find their HEA. Will we get our wish here ?

    historical romance

    The Duke of Lies by Darcy Burke The Untouchables #9 I didn’t want this book to end! I love this series and the addition of this book was a delight to read! Verity has shaped a life for herself with her young much loved son she loves that will one day be Duke of Blackburn. To say she is happy her husband will soon be declared deceased is an understatement. She is eager to claim a life that has never really been her own as her father has always been more interested in himself than in her and her husband of three months was entirely despicable. Her plans for the future that do NOT include her husband Rufus…and then…who should appear on her doorstep but…Rufus…but…boy has he changed! As the two get reacquainted she is more and more confused by how nice he is. How generous. How very much changed he seems to be. How could this have happened? Can it be true? And, why would she be attracted to the man she once loathed and wished dead? Well, I really do not want to give away any of this delightful story beyond saying that I loved Verity, Kit, Beau and the rest of the cast both new and old. I was thrilled at the way the story worked out and am eager to read whatever comes next! NOTE: As I read I was reminded of the movie Somersby with Richard Gere and Jodie Foster…thankfully the ending of this book was much happier than that movie! Thank you to the author who bequeathed me an ARC through NetGalley – This is my honest review. 5 Stars ( )

    Verity and Kit are wonderful characters

    This was a fun story. Verity and Kit were great characters and they carried the plot really well. I liked the concept; a man pretends to be a duke in order to steal funds to buy a new ship, meets his dead half-brother’s clearly abused widow and her son, and comes to realize that life on land can be home even more so than the sea if you have the right people in it. Their adventure was enjoyable and entertaining, and I am glad Rufus ended up in fact being dead because, from all accounts, he was a horrible man, and I’m glad that Verity found true happiness with a man who could appreciate her. Beau, her son, was a priceless character, and I think it was definitely him who won Kit’s loyalty and love first. He was just too precious to resist and Kit was no match for him. The villain and conflict were engaging and fit the story really well. Overall, I really liked this story. I haven’t read a lot by this author but I definitely wasn’t disappointed. It has passion, suspense, adventure, humor, and strong characters that all blend into a great love story.

    Loved this Story!

    Darcy Burke always excels at creating compelling characters with strong emotions and suspense thrown in to make her stories page turners. Being book 9 of the Untouchables Series, the writing is fresh and intriguing. Having thought her husband dead after leaving for war in the America's, Verity Beaumont and her young son finally feel life is settling down. She had been under the thumb of her father and then her husband before he left and is determined to find peace. That is until her husband, Rufus shows back up alive. But Rufus has changed. Having been imprisoned in America during the war, his only thoughts had been to return to England and live a calm life. But he finds Verity skeptical that he has changed so he sets out to convince her that they can have a good life. But he brought back a lot of pain and secrets of what happened to him during the war, and as secrets often do, they come out. Can Rufus and Verify be happy and find an enduring love? There were so many emotions and the interaction with their son will bring a smile and a heart tug. Yes, my romantic heart could not help but be engaged and I sighed as I turned the last page. What a wonderful series and although each book can be read as a standalone, I would not miss all the other great stories.

    Great book in a great series

    I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley to read in exchange for a fair review. Duke of Lies by Darcy Burke is the 9th book in her The Untouchables series. It could be read as a stand-alone but I’ve very much enjoyed the series and suggest reading them all. Verity Beaumont, Duchess of Blackburn has been getting along just fine since her very nasty husband disappeared almost 6 years ago, she is raising her son and taking charge of the dukedom so the last thing she expects is his return claiming that he was impressed and taken onto a privateer’s ship. Rufus Beaumont has returned home a changed man, so much so that Verity is questioning if he is really her husband and if he isn’t who is he and where is her husband? Secrets, lies and a couple of mysteries make this very steamy romance one that will keep you hooked till the last page. Publishing Date May 29, 2018
