    I’ve found my favourite Madeline Hunter’s book

    I've received an eARC in exchange for an honest review. 4.5* I think I’ve found my favourite Madeline Hunter’s book so far. Although I always appreciate and like her books, they sometimes seem to be a bit below my expectations – but not this one. The Most Dangerous Duke in London doesn’t fit that category. I really enjoyed it and couldn’t put it down. The base of the plot is related to revenge, and these are usually my favourite plots, but in this case, the story was so well put together that what mattered wasn’t so much the revenge plan but the growth of the relationship between Adam and Clare. Clare is a strong, independent woman, who knows what she wants and is very smart and intelligent. Adam is a duke that finds himself confronted with a choice and at that moment he sees Clare, in her horse, at the top of a hill – and, being she the daughter of a deceased man who might have had something to do with Adam’s family tragedy, he cannot put her aside and let her go – she was at the right place, on the right time. Clare’s family wants to use her younger sister almost like a sacrifice to placate Adam’s supposed anger and rage, but when he sees Clare, he doesn’t even think twice about her little sister. Clare and Adam have an important attraction, but more than that, what matters is how their relationship grows with friendship and companionship. With a plot that has mystery, betrayal, connections to France and the war, as well as a romance that keep you holding on to the book, this has become my favourite book by Madeline Hunter.

    Great Start to a New Series

    FINAL DECISION: Fabulous start to a new series. Didn't go in the direction I expected and I ended up loving Adam. Motives are mysterious until all is revealed which built suspense and interest. Loved these two together. THE STORY: Adam Penrose, Duke of Stratton, has returned to England after years in France following his father's death. Adam has returned for revenge and to find out who set the events in motion which led to his father's death. He is also in pursuit of a wife. He discovers Lady Clara Cheswick, the daughter of his family's longtime enemy. Lady Clara has no intention of agreeing to Adam's determined pursuit of her as she is independent and spending her time managing her own property and interests. Then there is the also the question of what Adam's true motives are. OPINION: This book was more intimate and personal than I expected from the description. Really focusing on the developing relationship between Adam and Clara, the reader is left questioning what Adam's motives are. Clara is a woman who desire for independence even if that means upsetting conventional behavior and roles for women. Having inherited property of her own, Clara plans never to marry but instead publish a paper for women -- written by women. She is independent but isn't willing to toss away all convention. That creates tension as she tries to exist both in and outside of society's expectations. She also struggles with her relationship with her family. While she doesn't always feel close to them, her loyalty to her father makes her suspicious of Adam's motives -- perhaps rightfully. Adam is mysterious through much of the book. By the end of the book, however, I loved Adam. In the book, people wonder what Adam's motives are for returning to England...and the reader is left to wonder as well. By not cluing readers in to Adam's thoughts on the matter, the story has more tension and mystery. And the story needs that mystery because this book is truly driven by Adam's reasons for returning to England and what his plans are. This book feels more intimate and personal because the focus of the book is truly the relationship between Adam and Clara. Can Clara trust Adam? Why is he pursuing a relationship with her? Does he truly intend to marry her? Why? What I ended up loving about this book is that the answers are more complex than a simple narrative. WORTH MENTIONING: Oh, I can't wait for the other two upcoming heroes. There are some good stories to be told there. CONNECTED BOOKS: THE MOST DANGEROUS DUKE IN LONDON is the first book in the Decadent Dukes Society. STAR RATING: I give this book 4.5 stars. NOTE: I received an ARC of this book via Netgalley in order to provide a review. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions contained herein are my own.

    Loved it

    'The Most Dangerous Duke in London' by Madeline Hunter is the First book in the New Series called "Decadent Dukes Society". This is the story of Adam Penrose, Duke of Stratton and Clara Cheswick. After the death of his father, Adam leaves to go to France to be with his mother. But now he has returned at the request of Dowager Countess of Marwood. The Countess calls him to visit to try to end feud between the two families since her son has past and his father has died. Countess suggested that a marriage between the two families who be the thing to solve this issue. Her son had actually said that his younger daughter Emilia should be offered to him. Emilia is young lady who is easy to get along with. But Adam sees Emilia and feels nothing for her but while looking out the window at her he does see another women who is riding a horse. Adam asked about her to find that Clara is the oldest daughter by a first marriage. Adam is told that she wold not be suitable as her father spoiled her by letting her get an education, allowing her to do whatever she wants and in addition has left her with land and money...so she feels marriage is beneath her. Clara would make a terrible wife they say. But Adam is attracted to her and if this agreement is gonna work he will settle for her only. Clara was close to her father and was allowed to do what other young ladies where not. Clara has taken to writing and publishing a ladies journal. So marriage isn't something she is willing to do. Ms. Hunter writes some of the Best Historical Romances. When I see her name I know that this will be a enjoyable read that will take me away into the story. This book is a great start to a great series! "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

    An entertaining read!

    A great start to the trilogy. We begin with a Duke wanting revenge, and a woman, Clara, from that family who is already on the shelf seems like a good target, but what starts out as one thing soon becomes something much more enticing. Unexpected mysteries and secrets are made know which are very intriguing. A fun read which is highly entertaining.

    ...deeply challenging and sometimes humorous trek.

    Independent in spirit, mischievous of heart and determined of mind. Characters like Clara are a joy to read because they are inspiring, passionate and full of surprises. Add in a devil like Adam and the temperature quickly goes from frigid to volcanic. Ms. Hunter is good. For every moment that I wanted to hate Adam and his hurtful vendetta, I found myself hurting for him instead. It's easy to judge, but difficult to feel. The Most Dangerous Duke In London is driven by emotions. Some painful and dark, others heated and intense, yet all make for an deeply challenging and sometimes humorous trek.
