Overview

A thief who has never been caught. A duke who has never lost his prey.

~*~

He advanced toward her, rolling his sleeves, a lock of hair falling into his face. So male, so alive, all glistening and golden. There was such a deep hammering in her chest she thought her heart might beat its way right out.

“What are you doing?”

“Sealing our deal.”

A flurry of half formed thoughts flew through her brain. “Right.” She thrust a hand toward him.

He grabbed her cold hand and pulled her toward him. His lips swept hers and the half formed thoughts scattered completely under his warmth.

He kissed her more deeply and she leaned into his heat. What would it be like to be loved by this man?

this book was amazing. i loved it and i highly reccomend you read it. the only thing it was maybe lacking was,well.. sex, but unless you looking for one of those erotic sex filled romances then this book is still amazing. i loved the comedy between the two and theres this one page where it begins a new chapter and upon reading it i became furious because i thought he was sleeping with someone else, but then i was laughing so hard i wanted to cry believe me if you read the book you'll know where i'm talking about. i highly highly reccomend this book. the relationship between the characters is amazing and theres plenty of adventure and intrigue to keep you on your toes all the way to the end.

The Duke of Marston Stephen Chalmers failed to catch Hermes the thief who apparently retired until now. For an unknown reason, Hermes has committed six robberies in a week, but this time Stephen knows that the long assumed male thief is a she, Audrey Kendrick; once he has her accomplices he will send her and her team to Newgate. --- Audrey detests the blackmailing Travers who has her sister Faye as a hostage to force Hermes to do his bidding. Travers is upset to see Stephen ¿Bloody¿ Chalmers with Audrey and warns her to stay away from the gentleman spy. However, it is difficult to avoid someone who seems to be everywhere you are. As Stephen sets up his final trap to capture the entire Hermes gang, he finds his admiration for Audrey¿s courage and daring grow and his desire for her interfere with his thought process. Audrey falls in love with the forbidden fruit of an aristocrat who wants to send her to Newgate, Australia or his bed, but Faye¿s safety must come before her betraying heart. --- Though readers know who the thief, her ¿handler¿ and the sleuth are from the start, DARING THE DUKE is a fabulous Regency romantic suspense due to a terrific triangular cat, rat, and mouse game between the key threesome. Fans will enjoy Stephen¿s dilemma as he has fallen in love with the obsession he wants to send to prison. Audrey is a brave individual who sub-genre fans will emphasize with about her dilemma, hoping that somehow she overcomes the impossible with Stephen at her side. --- Harriet Klausner
