A romantic ''Happily ever after'' love story! I adored, THE DUKE OF DARKNESS, written by Anabelle Bryant. I loved her two main characters Devlin Ravensdale, The Duke of Wharncliffe and Alexandra Grandchester. Devlin, is a tortured man hiding secrets from his past. He receives the news that his aunt has passed away and he gets a new responsibility to take care of her ward and arrange a suitable marriage for Alex. He loves his solitary life and is afraid of loving! But, as soon as he meets Alex, he will discover that he is not a young boy, but a gorgeous young woman. Beautiful chemistry between the two. What happens when a woman falls into the hands of a charming duke? Will love be the air? Will love heal Devlin's tortured soul?Some scenes are written with a touch of humor, like this one ''Did you notice the new silk wall coverings, Darling?'' And Devlin answering ''I was just between your thighs..let's hope I wasn't contemplating the wall coverings!'' I really loved this Regency romance, it was very well written and fun to read, very refreshing! This is the first book that I read by Ms. Bryant and it won't be the last one! I recommend it without hesitation!

Anabelle Bryant has created a wonderful, tortured hero. The Duke of Wharncliffe believes his line should end with him, so he has been very careful not to get involved with anyone he might fall in love with. When his elderly aunt dies he is asked to find a suitable match for her ward "Alex". To his great consternation Alex is not the young boy he expected but a lovely young woman. When the woman, who has been unknowingly groomed by his aunt, challenges him to a chess match. Their friendship begins. The Duke is tortured by his family history, but not to the point where he cannot be redeemed. The story is well written and brings you right into the characters, you can hear Just Henry racing through the corridors, his nails clacking on the marble floors. It is a lovely love story and you shouldn't miss it.

Small detail...but considering throughout the book Devlin is described to have black hair and a beard, I am disappointed in the cover. It is like when you see continuity issues when filming.....

I loved this book. I had to go back and read the last few chapter again, just because that's a habit of mine if I really like a book. I only wished for an epilogue.

A bland, shallow, and formulaic romance that lacks historical accuracy.
