COVER REVEAL ~~THE DUKE OF DEFIANCE~~DARCY BURKE w/Giveaway

Release date: June 27, 2017

Difficult and defiant as a child, Bran Crowther, Earl of Knighton left England as a young man to pursue independence and adventure. He never expected to inherit the title and when duty calls him home, he still finds Society’s codes constricting and others’ expectations oppressive. Nevertheless, he needs a wife to be a mother to his young daughter, preferably a woman of intelligence and warmth who is, above all, immune to his idiosyncrasies—and to falling in love.
Widow Joanna Shaw isn’t interested in a second marriage, not after the loveless, passionless union she endured. She’d much rather dote on her young niece and nephew since they will likely be the only children in her life…until she meets a precocious girl, in desperate need of a mother. But her father, the so-called Duke of Defiance, is as peculiar as he is handsome, and Jo won’t take another risk with her heart. Their rules, however, are made to be broken, even when the consequences could destroy them both.

About the Book:

Ten years ago Ivy Breckenridge’s life was ruined. She had to reinvent herself, and now, after painstakingly making her own way in the world, she’s nearly forgotten the dreams of home and family she’d once nurtured. Until one man peers into her soul and awakens every one of her hidden desires. But no matter how good he makes her feel, she can’t trust him—alone by choice is better than alone by necessity.
With a notorious reputation for training married women in the art of passion, Sebastian Westgate, Duke of Clare, is reviled by some and celebrated by others. He doesn’t allow anyone close enough to see past his charming exterior. When Ivy uncovers the man beneath, the seducer is suddenly the seduced. Enraptured by her mind and spirit, he wants more but revealing his darkest secrets is a price he won’t pay.

MY THOUGHTS:

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.
