The Duke of Lies - Darcy Burke

This was a fun story.  Verity and Kit were great characters and they carried the plot really well.  I liked the concept; a man pretends to be a duke in order to steal funds to buy a new ship, meets his dead half-brother’s clearly abused widow and her son, and comes to realize that life on land can be home even more so than the sea if you have the right people in it.  Their adventure was enjoyable and entertaining, and I am glad Rufus ended up in fact being dead because, from all accounts, he was a horrible man, and I’m glad that Verity found true happiness with a man who could appreciate her. Beau, her son, was a priceless character, and I think it was definitely him who won Kit’s loyalty and love first. He was just too precious to resist and Kit was no match for him.  The villain and conflict were engaging and fit the story really well. Overall, I really liked this story.  I haven’t read a lot by this author but I definitely wasn’t disappointed.  It has passion, suspense, adventure, humor, and strong characters that all blend into a great love story.

The Duke of Lies
The Duke of Lies - Darcy Burke The Duke of Lies is not always pretty. Darcy Burke paints a picture of some of life's ugliest moments for Verity and Rufus. Yet she finds the value in the experience. For this duo, love is about learning from past mistakes and rebuilding a stronger, equal foundation. Verity is spreading her wings after years of being tied down. She's learning to use her voice by speaking her mind and listening to her heart. All is going her way until her overbearing past reappears in her present. Rufus, her dead husband returns a changed man. Can they find the strength to give love another try? Life lessons abound in a tale of faith and second chances.

Lemon cakes better than I love you
The Duke of Deception - Darcy Burke
Ned bent down and kissed his brother’s cheek. “Lemon cakes,”he whispered. 
George’s eyes remained closed, but his lips curved into a familiar, beloved smile. “Lemon cakes. Yes, Ned. Lemon cakes.”
Those had been their favorite sweet. Cook, who’d passed long ago, had made them twice a week and always ensured Ned and George had the first batch while they were still warm. “Lemon cakes”had been something they’d uttered to each other as a gesture of comfort. A sort of “I love you”for boys who wouldn’t dare say such a thing to each other.
 




Lemon cakes. This got me.

Anyway, good but not wowing. The sex scenes read a bit contemporary, they do hold off until the latter second half of book. Except for the beautiful lemon cakes scene not really anything new or memorable. Hero's brother George was the most I got emotional about, hero and heroine had more of a sedate romance and chemistry; I personally like a bit more spark.

The Duke of Deception - Darcy Burke

Lightly, his fingertips grazed her collarbone and the side of her neck, gently stroking. She resisted the urge to close her eyes and lose herself in this simple and yet devastating sensation. If she completely surrendered… What? What would happen?

“How chivalrous and yet scandalous at the same time,” she murmured.
