About the Book

Spinster Miss Eleanor Lockhart is suddenly homeless and employment is her only option. Ruined after succumbing to a scoundrel’s excessive charm nearly a decade ago, she’s lucky to obtain a position as a paid companion and committed to behaving with the utmost propriety. She definitely shouldn’t be in the arms of a man capable of utterly destroying what little remains of her reputation…

Titus St. John, Duke of Kendal, is known as the Forbidden Duke, a mysterious, intimidating figure who enters Society just once each year at his stepmother’s ball. A decade ago, he was a devil-may-care rake until his idle roguery brought about the ruin of Eleanor Lockhart—and his resulting self-imposed isolation. Now she’s back, and she needs his help. But by “saving” her, he may just ruin her life all over again.

“I LOVED this story!!”

– Historical Romance Lover, 5 stars

“This is my first book of Darcy Burke’s and I must say I am now a huge fan. Her writing style is impeccable and she weaves such a deep and vivid tale that just captures the reader and draws them back in time to the elegant ballrooms, the afternoon teas of the ton and of course into the passionate lives of her characters. Her characters spring to life on the pages and one can’t help but fall in love. This is a wonderful read and I can’t wait to see what to come next in this amazing series of The Untouchables.”
