Duke of Danger - Darcy Burke

After killing his opponent in a duel, Lionel Maitland, Marquess of Axbridge, is known as the Duke of Danger. Tortured by guilt, he shields himself with a devil-may-care attitude. However, when he kills another man in another duel, he’s beyond redemption, even though it wasn’t his fault. He refuses to smear a dead man’s name, especially when he’s left behind a blameless widow who doesn’t deserve an even bigger scandal.

Widowed and destitute, Lady Emmaline Townsend must marry the man of her parents’ choosing or beg unsympathetic relatives for support. The only way out is to ask for help from the one man she’s sworn to hate, the man who owes her anything she asks, the man who killed her husband. They strike a devil’s bargain in which passion simmers just beneath the surface. But her dead husband’s transgressions come back to haunt them and threaten their chance at love.

The Duke of Danger is another amazing story in The Untouchables series. Lionel has more honor in his pinky finger than anyone. That honor leads him to Emmaline's doorstep and apologizing for killing her scoundrel husband in a duel. To make up for it he agrees to an arranged marriage to save her from a despicable marriage her parents arranged. Thrown together the two have an attraction and as life takes hold the both develop a reluctant friendship. I love Emmaline she's hesitant but not blind to what's in front of her and admits her past marriage wasn't the best. Who wouldn't love the most honorable man around especially as he sweeps Emmaline and the reader off their feet. It's also fun to visit the heroes and heroines from books past.
If you haven't read one of Darcy Burke's historical romances hop on that train and ride!  Once you start you won't want to stop. Each story is unique and perfectly woven with twists and turns.
