Ivy Breckenridge is quite content with her life as a lady’s companion. The position affords her the opportunity to remain in the shadows, a place she’s most comfortable with since having attention ruined her life many years ago and forces her to keep a secret even from her dearest friends. Though her friends want her to share the bliss they have come to know as married women Ivy adamantly refuses to have anything to do with love or marriage. When she catches the eye of The Duke of Desire will she stick with her vow? And what happens if her secret comes out? Can she reinvent herself all over again?
Deemed an Untouchable (those who are out of reach for wallflowers) with the nickname of The Duke of Desire, Sebastian Westgate “West”, the Duke of Clare, does his best to vex his mother, the woman who made his childhood miserable, the woman who can’t seem to love him. Affairs with married women and the gossip it elicits is certainly one way to drive the woman mad. Another way – vowing never to marry and letting the Dukedom fall to a cousin. A seemingly innocent house party just may have West reconsidering his decision – IF he can get the lady to agree.
There are so many parts of this story that I love! Ivy – brought to the lowest of lows she has survived and even thrived in her life. West – has a high opinion of himself but you soon see the selflessness within him and the hurt he carries. Ivy’s actions towards someone from her past (you go girl!). West’s reaction to his Mother when she infiltrates his home (though he should have physically tossed her out on her ear). West’s conversations with the husbands (two former Untouchables) of Ivy’s two best friends had me laughing out loud. Last but not least (okay – there are many more I could list but why ruin the fun for everyone) the marriage proposal had me wanting to smack West upside the head and shake sense into Ivy.
I adore Darcy Burke’s books and this one is no exception! Ms. Burke writes book four in The Untouchable series, The Duke of Desire, in a way that it can be read as a stand-alone. However, I highly suggest adding the others to your to-be-read pile - you won’t be disappointed. Now patiently waiting (cue drumming fingers on table) to see which Untouchable falls next.
Ivy Breckenridge had to reinvent herself after her life was ruined ten years ago. She feels the better choice is being alone, no matter how a certain male makes her feel. She can’t bring herself to trust him no matter how he is able to awaken her hidden desires.
Sebastian Westgate, Duke of Clare, has a reputation for training married women in the art of passion. He doesn’t allow anyone to get close enough to see past his charming exterior. Ivy Breckenridge uncovers the man beneath and the seducer becomes the seduced. No matter how enraptured he is or how much more he wants, revealing his secrets is a price he will not pay.
I read this one, book 4, before the others in the series, but now I shall go back and read this entire series. All the reader should do is open to page one and become completely engrossed. I highly recommend this book and series along with any other series written by Darcy Burke.
As I said an impossible book to put down until you reach the end and then I was sorry it was over! I read this book first from a series. I now have purchased the three previous books. Thank you Darcy Burke!!
