Kit only wants what he was promised. Impersonating a duke could get him hanged… yet even when the opportunity presents, he can't make himself abandon Verity and her son Beau. The lies are beginning to add up, though, and sooner or later, someone's going to figure out he's an impostor.
This is a really lovely story. Verity was obviously tormented during her brief period of marriage, though thankfully not too much of the abuse was spelled out. Kit's honorable nature made them a perfect match once the legal difficulties were resolved.
Though this is the ninth in this series, it stands well alone. Simon and Diana (from The Duke Of Ruin) feature as prominent side characters, but it's not at all necessary to have read that book to thoroughly enjoy this one. Five stars.

The Duke of Lies by Darcy Burke is the ninth book in the 'Untouchables' Series.
As soon as I began to read this book I recognised the similarities with a book I had read when I was at school called 'Martin Guerre' by Alexandre Dumas and the movie "Somersby", both of these are about a man who returns to his wife after being away at war for many years and there is a suspicion that he is not who he claims to be.
This being said I loved that way Darcy Burke took this story outline and made it fit beautifully with Rufus and Verity story. I thought that there could have been more about the real husband but I feel that the story was told with some the characters having their suspicions about Rufus but seeming to forget them very rapidly. Verity was a great Heroine who shows the women can overcome many burdens that life can throw at them. Rufus was a wonderful Hero who learned that sometimes it is better to believe in love and trust than lies. I enjoyed this story very much and found it hard to put down to do the regular things like eating and doing the dishes as I just wished the story would not end. I will look forward to more of Darcy Burkes wonderful stories. I highly recommend this book.
