Publisher’s Description:

From New York Times bestselling author Madeline Hunter comes the latest sexy tale of three untamable dukes and the women who ignite their decadent desires . . .

HE MAY BE A DEVIL
He’s infamous, debaucherous, and known all over town for his complete disregard for scandal, and positively irresistible seductions. Gabriel St. James, Duke of Langford, is obscenely wealthy, jaw-droppingly handsome, and used to getting exactly what he wants. Until his attention is utterly captured by a woman who refuses to tell him her name, but can’t help surrendering to his touch . . .

BUT SHE’S NO ANGEL EITHER . . .
Amanda Waverly is living two lives—one respectable existence as secretary to an upstanding lady, and one far more dangerous battle of wits—and willpower—with the devilish Duke. Langford may be the most tempting man she’s ever met, but Amanda’s got her hands full trying to escape the world of high-society crime into which she was born. And if he figures out who she really is, their sizzling passion will suddenly boil over into a much higher stakes affair . . .

My Thoughts:

This is the second installment in this trilogy, Decadent Dukes Society and as well written and compelling as the first one.
Gabriel is an obscenely wealthy Duke with good looks thrown in for good measure.
Amanda Waverly is hiding her past behind a façade as a secretary. A blackmailer is forcing her hand to resort to thievery. He is holding her mother captive and the ransom is items she must steal for him.
Will Gabriel be able to help Amanda once he learns of her deception?
Will his attraction to Amanda overrule the fact that she is a thief?
I enjoyed this book with it’s twists and turns never knowing what will happen next.
I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars foe storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5.0 flames. There are some very intimate scenes but they can’t override the underlying mystery of this book.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book by invitation from the publisher to read and review.
This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

  1. The Most Dangerous Duke in London
  2. A Devil of a Duke

Publisher’s Description:

Sebastian Ashcroft, fourth Marquess of Danesfield, had no intention of accompanying Sophie Beaufort on a ludicrous quest to find her missing brother. Nor did he want to be part of the investigation into her brother’s dealings with the mysterious Comte de Dampierre.

But desire can do strange things to a man.

Threatened with an indecent proposal from a dissolute French comte, Sophie Beaufort is forced to travel to London to discover the reason behind her brother’s mysterious disappearance. Capable of handling her own affairs, the last thing she wants is to be encumbered by the dishonourable Marquess of Danesfield – a man she so desperately wants to hate.

But does love once blossomed ever truly fade?

Publisher’s Description:

An earl with a terrifying secret …

Alexander Cole was a man ruled by his voracious appetite for carnal pleasures until a golden-haired devil in the guise of a goddess lures him into an encounter that costs him his humanity. With nothing left but bitterness in his heart, he locks himself away in his dilapidated Elizabethan mansion and chains the gates to all intruders.

A lady hoping to prove love conquers all …
When her aunt suffers an injury in a carriage accident, Evelyn Bromwell rushes through the forest in search of help. Drawn to the mysterious old mansion, she is left aghast to find such a frosty reception. Yet despite the earl’s rude and brusque manner, Evelyn is eager to discover the reason behind his austere façade.

Once desire begins to burn, Alexander and Evelyn are unable to deny the soul-deep connection that exists between them. But Evelyn must make a choice —— marry the kind and affable Mr. Sutherby or risk everything in the hope of thawing an immortal’s frozen heart.
