One Night of Surrender (Wicked Dukes Club #2) by Darcy Burke
One Night of Surrender (Wicked Dukes Club #2) - Darcy Burke

 

 

Darcy Burke dreams up some of the best heroes and heroines. They charm as much as they frustrate, yet it's the skill in which she exposes their imperfections, that make them captivating to read. One Night of Surrender is a passionate tale. Valentine and Isa are two ships passing in the night until fate throws them a lifeline. Will they survive the dark waters ahead or wind up shipwrecked on Heartbreak Island? Burke packs a mountain of turbulence into a mesmerizing love story.

The Helicopter Pilot- Darcy Hoover

     There was a brief period at the start when I thought that there was going to be rather too much engineering talk about helicopters, but this soon passed. Then very soon I was being drawn into the real story, the one about the characters that pilot those machines, and particularly the sub-culture of well-travelled pilots that ply their trade wherever it is called for. The story centres on a group of pilots working a fictitious site of oil drilling platforms of the coast of East Africa.

     As the story begins to generate pace, we soon realise that its main theme is a clash between wealthy, privileged Western and a strong African culture that manage to sustain its people despite appalling relative poverty. The central figure, a form-filling, technically efficient if less than naturally talented, pilot is both naïve and prejudiced in his attitudes to foreigners in general, and especially those that live under African skies. He isn’t racist, that would be an unfair slur, but he certainly lives his bottled-up life under a thick blanket of cultural prejudices and unsound expectations. However, the mix of skin-hardened bush, ex-military and worldly-wise commercial pilots ensure that Edward sees his African contract through, if only just. We see Edward not so much change his spots, but to at least give them a depth of human understanding, that even in our widely wired, and increasingly educated population is far from always associated with first-world experience; even when burnished with occasional bursts of sunburn't crimson in one protected tourist enclave or another.

     This is a well written first book by a more than competent independent writer, who brings a good deal of personal experience to this entertaining story. However, a professional copy edit would certainly improve the read. . It is, in the end, a book about the human condition, about the ability of people to make the best of what they have, wherever they happen to be, and about the prejudices in our variable characters that define us all, that make us the individuals we are. Edward would end up utterly the same man and yet profoundly changed by a few weeks in a much larger world; a place less tailored to his comfy, safe, preconceptions.

Fabulous Historical Romance!
The Forbidden Duke (The Untouchables Book 1) - Darcy Burke

The Forbidden Duke is an amazing historical romance by Darcy Burke.  This is a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time.  Ms. Burke has delivered a well-written book filled with outstanding characters.  Eleanor's reputation was ruined years ago and now finds herself suddenly homeless and must take a position as a companion.  Titus is the Duke of Kendal and while he didn't ruin Eleanor, he feels guilty that he did play a part in her disgrace.  Titus and Eleanor's story is loaded with drama, humor and sizzlin' hot sex.  This book captured me from the first page and held me hostage until the last.  I enjoyed every page and look forward to my next book by Darcy Burke.  The Forbidden Duke is book 1 of The Untouchables Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

The Duke of Distraction (The Untouchables #12) by Darcy Burke
The Duke of Distraction (The Untouchables #12) - Darcy Burke

 

 

Count on Burke to break a heart as only she can. Just when you think the pain is too much, she gives a reason to smile again. Embittered by love, Felix and Sarah are about to discover that no one is immune to it's power. Although not as passionate as some of the previous books in the series, The Duke of Distraction proves it can definitely hold it's own. Sarah and Felix have a romance that was years in the making and their hearts have decided to finally take flight. Can they friendship survive the obstacles that stand in the way? This couple will get under the skin before they steal your heart. What started as slow is destined to leave a lasting impression.

Captivating the Scoundrel (Legendary Rogues #4) by Darcy Burke
Captivating the Scoundrel - Darcy Burke

 

 

Their love may change the world, but their secrets could topple a dynasty. More medieval than regency, Captivating the Scoundrel is a fiery read. Burke thrusts readers into an intricately woven tale of drama, mystery and passionate romance. Gideon and Daphne never meant to fall in love. They just couldn't help themselves. I never meant to lose my heart. I just couldn't help myself. Once started, it must be finished. An imaginative adventure.
