The Duke of Danger

I’ve been enjoying Darcy Burke’s The Untouchables series, although I’ll admit I was rather disappointed in the last instalment, The Duke of Defiance and wasn’t sure I was going to read further.  But I decided to put that one down as an aberration and I’m glad I picked up The Duke of Dange ...

The Duke of Defiance

I hadn’t read any of Darcy Burke’s The Untouchables novels, but the title The Duke of Defiance sounded intriguing enough to make me try the book. Sadly, it was a dull read with the exception of a single moment I’ll mention later. Mild spoilers ahead. Thanks to an accident that kills both of ...

Never Love a Scoundrel

Never Love a Scoundrel is the fifth book in Ms Burke’s Secrets and Scandals series. I confess that I haven’t read any of the earlier books in the series, but even though some of the characters from them either appear or are referenced, I didn’t feel at a disadvantage, as the information we a ...
