Review of Never Desire a Duke by Lily Dalton



A secret from his past holds the key to their future…

A Marriage Beyond Hope

Lady Sophia has long been estranged from her husband, Lord Vane Barwick, the Marquess of Claxton, whose rumored list of amorous conquests includes almost every beautiful woman of the ton. Yet a shocking encounter with him in a crowded ballroom—and a single touch—are all it takes to reawaken her furious passion for him. But how can she trust the man who crushed her dreams and took away the one thing she wanted most?

A Love Beyond Reason

Lord Claxton has never forgiven himself for the youthful mistake that ruined his marriage to Lady Sophia. Now, after nearly a year abroad, the reformed rogue vows to win back the only woman he’s ever truly loved. He’ll do whatever it takes to prove he can be the honorable husband she deserves—and the passionate lover she desires. As the snowdrifts deepen outside their ancestral home, can they rekindle the flame that burned so bright and find a new path to forever?

Ok, first of all let me just say that I very much enjoyed this book. Although it is a historical, I found myself forgetting that at times, because all in all it was just a very good story. I loved the characters had moments that you wouldn’t normally see during that time; like sabotaging each other’s cakes or sleding down a hill. This book made me tear up several times; both good and bad reasons. It made me laugh, worry, and made my heart break. It was one of those books that are absolutely impossible to put down. I had to literally force myself not to read another chapter and another when I had other things to do. Robyn DeHart might have started my obsession with Historical Romances, but Ms. Lily Dalton is definitely keeping it alive. I cannot wait for the sequel!
