MY RECENT RELEASE REVIEW of
The Duke of Deception
The Untouchables Book Three
by Darcy Burke
After five years on the Marriage Mart, Miss Aquilla Knox is ready for spinsterhood until a benefactress steps in to help her secure a husband. Only Aquilla doesn’t actually want to marry—her failure is entirely on purpose. When the earl she’s nicknamed the Duke of Deception sets his sights on her, she refuses to be drawn in by her attraction to him. If there’s one thing she knows it’s that a gentleman is never what he seems.
Edward Bishop, Earl of Sutton, has a reputation for courting young misses and dropping them without a second thought. This has earned him a reputation for deceit, a description he can’t refute because he does in fact, harbor secrets and will do anything—deceive anyone—to ensure they don’t come to light. As he comes to know the charming Miss Knox, his resolve is tested. However, trust comes at a price and Ned won’t pay with his heart.
I was glad to see Aquilla get her own story. This has been a very interesting and enthralling series to date. This one contains a bit more mystery than the previous books. The storyline is very well developed and the characters beloved. With the introduction of Edward Bishop, Earl of Sutton and his well hidden family secret of his insane older bother we have a story that doesn’t just cover love and marriage but also the problems that may arise from such family problems and secrets.
I would give this book a very lofty rating of 4.5 of 5 stars and a heat rating of 4 of 5 flames. I highly recommend the read. It can be read as a standalone but is more enjoyable if you have read the series in order.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book.
