The Duke of Danger is the sixth installment in Darcy Burke's addictive Untouchables series. I have read every one and I see no sign of Burke slowing down! She has a lot of material to work with and I enjoy the world she is building a little bit more within each new book. Honestly, I think Burke is super woman in her ability to consistently publish books that are this good every few months!

This story features a jaded Miss Forth-Hodges (friend of Ivy and first featured in Duke of Deception and Duk

I’ve been enjoying Darcy Burke’s The Untouchables series, although I’ll admit I was rather disappointed in the last instalment, The Duke of Defiance and wasn’t sure I was going to read further. But I decided to put that one down as an aberration and I’m glad I picked up The Duke of Danger, which is a much more strongly-written and well-conceived story than the previous one. The eponymous duke isn’t actually a duke, but the ducal nicknames were invented – tougue-in-cheek – to show that the gent ...more
Sissy's Romance Book Review
'The Duke of Danger' by Darcy Burke is Book Six in "The Untouchables" series. This is the story of Lionel Maitland, Marquess of Axbridge and Lady Emmaline Townsend. I have read the other books in this series (and loved them!) but feel you can easily make this a standalone book.
Lionel is dubbed with the nickname "Duke of Danger" by the Town. Lionel doesn't fare well have each duel. Although he is left a left with his life, it has effected his feelings. This has sent him into a tails spend with h

Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.

Honor and the lengths some men go to to claim it and defend it. A man's word is his bond and when Lionel said he would do anything for Emmaline, he backs that up with actions. When he finds himself is the untenable position of a marriage of convenience, one his bride says will absolutely not ever be consummated, he has only one way out of this situation: make his bride fall in

It all started with a kitten named Jade. The progression of the emotions from anger and despair to acceptance and love is written in a very believable way that really makes this story so wonderful. Okay, so I did not like Emmaline through about half of the book but as the story progresses her demeanor changes and you see her in a different light. Lionel on the other hand was so easy to like from the beginning. He is so distraught, you ache for him. It was lovely watching their changes and seeing ...more

'Damn you to hell, Axbridge.'

Not a sentiment to encourage love and romance. But when Lionel Maitland, Marquess of Axbridge, kills Lady Emmaline Townsend's husband in a duel she finds that her husband has left her nothing but debts.
The 'Duke of Danger', an unfair label given Lionel by the 'wallflower' young women before they became more intimate with some of that group. To be fair they do wince when those nicknames are now mentioned in their presence,
Lionel has an unfortunate reputation for duell

His reputation precedes him, but it's his heart that tortures him. Will it lead to his undoing or become his saving grace? One moment changed a man's life. One choice set in motion a chain of events that connected the lives of three people forever. Out of greed, guilt and violence comes a romance as passionate as it is heartbreaking. Lionel and Emmaline are unwitting pawns in an ugly conspiracy set in motion by a dangerous man. When the tide turns in their favor, will they survive the revelation ...more

If only people knew what it does to Lionel every time he duels. He is a man of honor, and he tries to do the honorable thing. So when the Widow of the last man he dueled asked him to marry her for convenience only, he felt honor bound to grant her wish. It's the little things that he does and the things that people tell her about him that make her doubt the things she believed about him. The story pretty much is just Lionel and Emmaline, with just glances of their friends. The Duke of Danger is ...more

Loved This Book!

I read this book several months ago, and wish I had time to reread it! It is in my top 19 out of 20 books for 2017! Not in that order! Lionel Maitland is a Marquess, he has had to fight two duels of Honor, and now people consider him, mad, and dangerous. He goes to visit Lady Emmaline, the wife of the last man that was killed in the fuel. He feels horrendous over what has happened, and wants to offer whatever assistance that he can.
However, he never expected Lady Emmaline, to de

Lionel Maitland, the Marquess of Axbridge, had truly earned his nickname of THE DUKE OF DANGER: three duels, and two men dead. The latest had occurred eight months prior. Geoffrey Townsend had cheated, and Lionel acting on a reflex had shot Townsend, who subsequently expired. Lionel had never gotten over his guilt over the two previous duels, and this one almost undid him. Lionel had gone to see Lady Emmaline, Townsend’s widow, to offer his condolences and tell her that were she ever to need any ...more
