The Duke of Lies by Darcy Burke

My Rating:

Series: The Untouchables Book 9

Publication Date: May 29, 2018

Verity Beaumont has suffered domineering men most of her life, first with her father and then with her husband. Free from both men, she has finally found peace. Even meeting a kind and hard-working gentleman who just might be the perfect father her young son so desperately needs. But as she dares look to the future, her carefully ordered world is shattered when her dead husband returns.

After six years away, Rufus Beaumont, Duke of Blackburn, returns to claim his place and protect his family. Only, the life he finds is not the life he left, and he must convince his wife that their marriage is worth fighting for, that he’s not the man he was. When the truth about what happened to him leaks out, he must prove that not everything about him, especially his love for her, is a lie.

My Review:

Verity Beaumont was married off to the highest bidder her domineering father could find. Rufus Beaumont, Duke of Blackburn, treated Verity worse than people treat their dogs! Her father never said a word in her defense, he, and The Duke hired a steward who kept the books from her, even after Rufus went missing!

After six and one half years, she and her little boy Beau, born when his father disappeared, were living a happy life, in fact she finally found a Steward she could trust, and he loved her little boy, and she had grown fond of him. Just when things were looking up, a man rode up the long driveway, her whole world shattered, The Duke had returned!

This man had changed, changed so greatly, she could not believe it was the same man. Now, for him to convince Verity that he would do anything to protect her, and his son, whom he loved more than he thought possible! He wanted Verity to forget the past, and look forward to their bright future, if only she could trust him!

I highly recommend! Thanks! Enjoy!
