Miss Lucinda Parnell is out of money. A dismal failure at the Marriage Mart, she’d just as soon leave Society far behind. Desperate to earn funds to retire with her grandmother to the country, Lucy disguises herself as a man to gamble in London’s hells. But the Earl of Dartford, an Untouchable she never imagined speaking to let alone spending time with, is onto her in a trice. When he insists on acting as her protector, Lucy fears her chance to remain an independent woman is destined to go up in flames.
After losing his entire family, Andrew Wentworth, Earl of Dartford built a wall to keep attachments at bay. He believed he could keep Miss Parnell safe without compromising his defenses, but she’s exciting and irresistible. Their deepening relationship makes him even more determined to push her away. Nothing will stop him from trying to avoid reliving the anguish of loss. Love is the one risk he doesn’t have the heart to dare.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Another fabulous read from the ever creative mind of Darcy Burke. The Duke of Daring is a story of healing, strength and emotional self discovery that culminates into a romance filled with deep meaning and well crafted imagination.
Another terrific read from Darcy Burke. I think I can honestly say I never read such an strong willed independent heroine than Lucy Parnell. The depiction of her character was so realistic I could swear that she was standing right next to me.
Ms. Burke’s writing draws the reader in where they can feel each character’s emotion, from Lucy’s dislike of the male species to Andrew’s despair when memories come flooding in and everything in between. Be prepared to laugh at Lucy and Andrew’s antics as she tries to gather the funds she needs to crying when Andrew can’t keep the memories away.
I really like these kind of historical books and The Duke of Daring was a very enjoyable read. It was funny in the right way and the characters were, not only entertaining, but great too!
I absolutely loved this story. Lucy was such an incredibly easy character to root for. Darcy Burke has become one of my top favorite Author’s. Anything she writes is amazing.
