Miss Lucinda Parnell is out of money. A dismal failure at the Marriage Mart, she'd just as soon leave Society far behind. Desperate to earn funds to retire with her grandmother to the country, Lucy disguises herself as a man to gamble in London's hells. But the Earl of Dartford, an Untouchable she never imagined speaking to let alone spending time with, is onto her in a trice. When he insists on acting as her protector, Lucy fears her chance to remain an independent woman is destined to go up in flames.

After losing his entire family, Andrew Wentworth, Earl of Dartford built a wall to keep attachments at bay. He believed he could keep Miss Parnell safe without compromising his defenses, but she's exciting and irresistible. Their deepening relationship makes him even more determined to push her away. Nothing will stop him from trying to avoid reliving the anguish of loss. Love is the one risk he doesn't have the heart to dare.

"You are pulled in from the very start. The love scenes are swoonworthy. I found myself chuckling out loud reading the dialogue between the two of them. I would happily recommend this book and am looking forward to the rest of the series!"

- Forever Book Lover

"Oh, I absolutely loved this book! This series just gets better and better! A dynamite High 5 Stars for The Duke of Daring by Darcy Burke.

Burke's writing is impeccable. She weaves such a fascinating tale with so many twists and turns and her characters are so deep and fully developed. One can't help but fall in love with them. This series is truly amazing and, I admit, quite addicting. I can't wait for the next book."

- Teatime and Books

"An unconventional beauty set on life as a spinster meets the one man who might change her mind, only to find his painful past makes it impossible to love. Ms Burke took me on a wonderfully emotional journey from attraction, to friendship, to a love that conquers all."
