Daring and the Duke
Grace Condry has been living her best life. She’s the queen of Covent Garden, the owner of a selective club for ladies, and a successful businesswoman. All that changes, however, when the Duke of Marwick reappears in her life. As her sworn enemy, he cannot be allowed to walk away unscathed. As Ewan, the boy she once loved, she is still drawn to him.
As the third book in a series, there is a lot of history to Grace and her adoptive brothers, the Bareknuckle Bastards. Because I (oops!) grabbed this book before the other two, I sometimes found myself lost and trying to catch up on a plot already in motion. Luckily, Sarah MacLean’s vibrant, lively writing meant that most of the time I hardly noticed at all. I was too caught up in the fire burning between Grace and Ewan to worry much about the background, but it did fascinate me, and I’ll be catching up on the other Bastards and their stories just as soon as I can.
It’s a tangled, thrilling story, navigated wonderfully as the book slips between past and present in a way I’ve never seen a romance do. Daring and the Duke is as bright and brash as its brilliantly yellow cover, and it utterly enthralled me.
