The Bachelor Earl (The Untouchables) by Darcy Burke
The Bachelor Earl (The Untouchables) - Darcy Burke

 

 

 

The Bachelor Earl by Darcy Burke

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Burke has a way with the heart. The Bachelor Earl is a tale of two spirits destined to become one. Edmund and Genie find each other at a somewhat inconvenient time. She's trying to find herself after a painful loss. He's a romantic at heart with a ton of love to give, but no one to share it with. Both are a little bit older, yet still a tad clueless when it comes to matters of the heart. The Bachelor Earl finds it's voice slowly, but boldly and turns into a mesmerizing tale of irresistible romance that will tempt the senses as it lingers on the soul.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Two broken hearts, a scandalous mystery and a love that refuses to be denied. Darcy Burke continues to dominate the senses with intriguing characters, breathtaking romance and emotional stories. Thomas and Beatrix are no exception. A Scandalous Bargain is a little bit dark, a whole lot of heartache and a captivating puzzle just waiting to be solved. Scandal is a key player in this match-up. Both Thomas and Beatrix are shrouded in mysteries. Who knew that heartache could be dangerous. When secrets began to unravel anything can happen. Suspensefully haunting, heartbreakingly romantic and unpredictably perfect.

A Secret Surrender by Darcy Burke

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Adventure wraps itself around you as it steals away with your heart. Selina and Harry are a captivating pair. Chess is their game of choice and there's always a twist waiting to upset the game. Burke exercises more than the heart with her unpredictable storytelling. She puts the mind to work as well. A Secret Surrender is a stunning whirlwind of danger, romance and emotion that pulls readers into a dynamic seduction that is hard to break free of.

Lefty - no, Letty - by Clare Darcy
Letty - Clare Darcy

This is my third Clare Darcy in 24 hours; a triple-header, so to speak. Having ripped through three of them, I am ready to move on for a while. Darcy - and trad regencies in general - have a formula to them that they adapted from Georgette Heyer, but without her depth of characterization.

 

I'm sure that I will, eventually, read the whole lot of the digital editions, since they are free through the KU library. These are books for a rainy day, when I want nothing more demanding than a bit of froth.

 

This one does have some digitizing errors, including, occasionally and unfortunately, rendering the heroine's name, Letty, as Lefty, which is both hilarious and pulls me right out of the story.

Lydia by Clare Darcy
Lydia or Love in Town - Clare Darcy

I first read Clare Darcy when I was probably 14 years old - I snagged it off my mother's bookshelf, along with Georgette Heyer. She had an omnibus edition that included Cecily, Georgiana and Cecily. I basically read it into tatters.

 

When authors like Heyer and Victoria Holt and Phyllis Whitney started showing up on kindle with huge backlists, I remembered the omnibus and wondered if any of the books in it had been reprinted. After a fair amount of bookish detective work, I figured out that it had to have been Clare Darcy. When I started checking for her backlist, in probably 2014 or so, there was nothing there.

 

Nonetheless, I persevered, and every year or so I would search the amazon store to see if they had shown up. And this morning, when I looked again, there they were, all available through the KU library. I downloaded Lydia and settled in.

 

This is a quick read - I probably tore through it in 90 minutes or so. The word that most readily leaps to mind to describe it is "adorable." It is light-hearted and sweet and funny. Lydia is a hoot, the true heir to Heyer's Grand Sophy. Darcy isn't as good as Heyer, but she is good.

 

I just don't know which one to read next.
