“There’s one particularly sensual scene where all West does is talk… kudos, Ms. Burke, on that, because not many authors can write a Kindle-melting scene where the characters are a) upright and b) fully clothed.”
“In spite of the eyebrow raising concept of the nobleman sex-therapist, The Duke of Desire – the book, and the man himself – completely won me over. The pairing of the independent, somewhat repressed heroine who needs to learn to let go once in a while with the confident, all-round-swoon-worthy hero who oozes sex appeal is a potent one that proved, in the end, to be a winning combination.”
– All About Romance
“Crazy arse sparks/heat, chemistry and tension . . . OH MY . . . are happening between these two and while it takes them a while to get their lives and hearts aligned together, at the same time, it is one wild ride while they tray. Lots of smexy scenes in this book that kept the smut lover in me very satisfied and a perfect amount of romance/angst to keep the romantic in me happy. These two have personal obstacles to get over before either can entertain a love match. Their stores are said, and when the HEA comes it’s rewarding.
I LOVE Darcy Burke’s writing style. I am really looking forward to diving into the previous books and maybe check out her other books. If you are looking for a truly endearing story about two people who take the path least travelled to find the other, with a side of “YAH THAT’S HOT!” then this book is absolutely for you!”
– The Reading Café
“Masterfully written with great characterization, her eye to the dramatic and her desire to show readers a different side to Regency Romance with a flourish toward characters, secrets, and romance, brings forth an excellent historical romance. Must read addition to “The Untouchables” series!”
– My Book Addiction and More
“Loved, loved, loved it! The story is sweet, sexy and enthralling.”

Jo’s life with her first husband was as bad as I’d imagined it might be. She’s has had to learn not to accept the negative self talk he imposed on her, as well as the feelings of inadequacy.
Bran feels overwhelmed with the changes that have seen him travel thousands of miles from the only place he considered home. He has a young daughter, a new earldom and an unloving mother.
When he and Jo team up they make a great team. I was very happy to read Jo’s story and see her get her HEA. Now I’m onto the next book in the series.
I just love these books. This is the second standalone I've read, and I can't wait to go back and read them all!!
In this story, I really enjoyed Jo. I felt she was realistic (for as much as I know about the time period, which isn't a lot, but I really liked her!), and I especially liked how she had a very unfortunate past and she actually told Bran about it. None of this "I'll just have to keep my secret until the end of the book for a big reveal" sort of thing.
Bran was awesome! True to his nickname, he did as he pleased. Period. And boy, he did NOT mess around when it came to his daughter. She was his number one priority and it was really endearing to read how he made that principle his life's mission.
For as sweet as this book was, HOLY SMOKES was there some hotness in there! Jo and Bran couldn't be together in the public eye, so they had to sneak in their alone time, and boy, was there some steam in those stolen moments!
All in all, I love this series and can't wait to read more books by Darcy!
