Duelling Romance

The Duke of Danger Darcy Burke (#6 The Untouchables)

I love this fun, cheeky and quirky series, it’s just terrific.  Everything you’d expect from Darcy Burke – great characterisation, cracking pace and historical understanding.

The premise of this story is that the hero has killed someone in a duel.  I have to admit I struggled with this aspect, I can’t find guns and duelling honourable.  And even more so the flimsy excuses for such deplorable actions.

Having said that once I got into the story, I really loved it. Axminster was a flawed but quite gorgeous hero, and Emmaline was complex but ultimately likeable.  I really liked how she focussed on making herself independent. This really gave him a chance to shine.  So sweet and believable.

And then the romance – yummy!  The cover kind of says it all. Hot and bothered!!!

I loved all the glimpses of characters from the other books in the series only I kept forgetting who was who. So, I really wish the author would add in a who’s who at the end of the book.

Thank you netgalley for an ARC in return for an honest review
