The Most Dangerous Duke in London (Decadent Dukes Society) - Madeline Hunter

'The Most Dangerous Duke in London' by Madeline Hunter is the First book in the New Series called "Decadent Dukes Society". This is the story of Adam Penrose, Duke of Stratton and Clara Cheswick.

Clara was close to her father and was allowed to do what other young ladies where not. Clara has taken to writing and publishing a ladies journal. So marriage isn't something she is willing to do.
Ms. Hunter writes some of the Best Historical Romances. When I see her name I know that this will be a enjoyable read that will take me away into the story.
This book is a great start to a great series!
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

The Most Dangerous Duke in London (Decadent Dukes Society)
The Most Dangerous Duke in London (Decadent Dukes Society) - Madeline Hunter Independent in spirit, mischievous of heart and determined of mind. Characters like Clara are a joy to read because they are inspiring, passionate and full of surprises. Add in a devil like Adam and the temperature quickly goes from frigid to volcanic. Ms. Hunter is good. For every moment that I wanted to hate Adam and his hurtful vendetta, I found myself hurting for him instead. It's easy to judge, but difficult to feel. The Most Dangerous Duke In London is driven by emotions. Some painful and dark, others heated and intense, yet all make for an deeply challenging and sometimes humorous trek.

The Most Dangerous Duke in London (Decadent Dukes Society) - Madeline Hunter

This is the first book by Madeline hunter that I have read. I got it as part of the review team for Sabrina Jeffries, Ava Stone, Deb Marlowe, and now Madeline Hunter, so I didn't know what to expect. I was pleased with the story. Adam was a bit hard to get into as a male character. I knew he came back to London to seek revenge/justice for his dead father and I remember hearing him say something about using the proposal to Clara as a possible means to get that revenge. I knew, in the beginning, he wasn't that serious about a real relationship with her, but I am not sure when his scheming to get close to her in order to learn things turned into true feelings. Even his internal thoughts weren't always clear as to whether he was still using her or falling for her. When did his fake attentions turn into real ones? She was a strong female character and I liked her independence and spirit. Their story was enjoyable and passionate. The moment in his study where she learns that she has fallen in love with a man who might not be able to put the old hatred between their families aside to be with her poignant. How she stands up to her family to get him his truth at the end was also enjoyable to watch unfold. Overall, I did enjoy this story and will read more by this author.

Fantastic Historical Romance
The Most Dangerous Duke in London (Decadent Dukes Society) - Madeline Hunter

The Most Dangerous Duke In London by Madeline Hunter is a fabulous, well-written book.  Ms Hunters cast of characters is phenomenal, from the good, the bad and the old and crotchety, these characters shine.  Clara and Adam's story will hold readers' attention from the first page to the last with plenty of suspense, humor, drama and sizzle. I adore this story and look forward to reading more from Madeline Hunter in the future.  The Most Dangerous Duke In London is book 1 of the Decadent Dukes Society Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.

THE WICKED DUKE by Madeline Hunter
The Wicked Duke - Madeline Hunter
 

Lance is going crazy away from London but he spies some fun through the trees in the form of a neighbor's niece. Marianne hears the rumors but does not believe them. Both are determined to find out the truth.

 

After a slow start, Lance and Marianne become less predictable. The neighbor makes a bargain with the Duke for Marianne's hand. She does not want to fulfill the bargain after her uncle tells her his tale of the Duke but her choice is taken away by the uncle. I liked them especially Marianne. Lance was predictable but he did finally solve the murder so he could finally be with Marianne without a noose over his head.

The story was believable. I could not believe how reticent Lance was to when trying to find the murderer. He treated most people with kid gloves during his investigation. I liked how Marianne had his back. I also liked how Lance's thoughts and feelings were woven through the story. I loved when his brothers were able to get back at him for his less than stellar comments of their courtships.

While Marianne is outspoken and the Duke outrageous, they give us their HEA.
