Never deny a duke Free read Æ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Y part with one trivial estate especially when Davina intends to put it to good use Brentworth however is as difficult to persuade as he is to resistThe Duke of Brentworth's discretion and steely control make him an enigma even to his best friends Women especially find him inscrutable and unapproachable but also compellingly magnetic So when Dav. 45 starsMy reading has slowed to a snail s pace compared to last year but I seem to be having hits than misses lately That is a very welcome trend and Madeline Hunter s latest continues it I thought the romance and characters were lovelyThis was the final installment in Hunter s Decadent Duke s trilogy but it can be read as a stand alone Brentworth is the least scandalous of the trio He is the most respectable and wields considerable power in the ton enough power that the King does not have the influence over Brentworth that he might over other peers This is problematic because the King and the King before him may have promised to return lands in the Brentworth holdings to previous Scottish owner s family that was thought to have perished in the Jacobite uprising Conveniently the Scottish family s heir is an attractive woman of marriageable age Despite Brentworth s fascination for the medically trained Davina he does not give in easily to the convenient solution Brentworth and Davina embark on a fact finding mission both hoping to disprove the other This causes them to spend much time together which fuels their initial spark I enjoyed how their relationship grew in an organic way They both grew to respect each other however begrudgingly at the beginningHunter has typically written a reliably good sometimes great read but I did go into this one uncertain of how I would enjoy it because this has been an uneven series Thankfully it ended on high note in my opinion I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
