Kensington June 2017 Print Staff Pick – Norma Perez-Hernandez / THE MOST DANGEROUS DUKE IN LONDON by Madeline Hunter

I adore historical romance, and Regency era romances are no exception. There’s something about the beautiful ball gowns, the witty heroines who don them, and the dashing heroes who learn to fall in love that makes my own heart skip a beat.

Madeline Hunter’s The Most Dangerous Duke in London has all that and more. Clara is a character whom I deeply admire, as she’s devoted to publishing the women’s journal she founded in secret. And while Adam has a troubled past, watching him discover a better future with Clara is a delight.

Even better, there’s more to come! This is the first book in Madeline Hunter’s Decadent Dukes Society series. Yes, you read that right. There will be more historical romances to come from Madeline Hunter, and I can’t wait to see who falls in love next.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

“The writing is lively and the characters fun…. A thoroughly enjoyable read.”– Kirkus Reviews on The Most Dangerous Duke in LondonThree sinfully handsome dukes, three scores to settle, three hearts about to meet their matches. All in one thrilling new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Madeline Hunter…

Notorious Nobleman Seeks Revenge

Name and title: Adam Penrose, Duke of Stratton. Affiliation: London’s elite Society of Decadent Dukes. Family history: Scandalous. Personality traits: Dark and brooding, with a thirst for revenge. Ideal romantic partner: A woman of means, with beauty and brains, willing to live with reckless abandon. Desire: Clara Cheswick, gorgeous daughter of his family’s sworn enemy.

Faint Of Heart Need Not Apply

Clara may be the woman Adam wants, but there’s one problem: she’s far more interested in publishing her women’s journal than getting married—especially to a man said to be dead-set on vengeance. Though, with her nose for a story, Clara wonders if his desire for justice is sincere—along with his incredibly unnerving intention to be her husband. If her weak-kneed response to his kiss is any indication, falling for Adam clearly comes with a cost. But who knew courting danger could be such exhilarating fun?

“Hunter has created an intelligent, fast-paced romance, chock-full of sensuality and spiced with mystery.” -- Publishers Weekly
