About the Book:
Ten years ago Ivy Breckenridge’s life was ruined. She had to reinvent herself, and now, after painstakingly making her own way in the world, she’s nearly forgotten the dreams of home and family she’d once nurtured. Until one man peers into her soul and awakens every one of her hidden desires. But no matter how good he makes her feel, she can’t trust him—alone by choice is better than alone by necessity.With a notorious reputation for training married women in the art of passion, Sebastian Westgate, Duke of Clare, is reviled by some and celebrated by others. He doesn’t allow anyone close enough to see past his charming exterior. When Ivy uncovers the man beneath, the seducer is suddenly the seduced. Enraptured by her mind and spirit, he wants more but revealing his darkest secrets is a price he won’t pay.

This series just keeps getting better with every book! A Dynamite 5 Stars for Darcy Burke's The Untouchable Series! In the Duke of Desire, we meet strong, independent Ivy Breckenridge; a Lady's Companion. She's at a very well attended house party where she runs into the very crass, often rude yet dashingly handsome Sebastian Westgate, Duke of Clare. She and her peers fondly call him 'The Duke of Desire'; she coined the phrase as he is one of the untouchables. The duke of Clare is known for his roguish ways with the ladies and also his services to married couples who are having some difficulties in the marital bed.
Ivy is quite content with a life as a spinster and wants nothing to do with any man; but most especially, the Duke of Clare. Clare, however, finds Ivy quite irresistible and quite the challenge. They keep bumping into one another and he's quite intrigued by her intellect and stern consternation. However, as time goes on, although Ivy does her best to push the Duke of Clare at arms distance, she can't help but feel him tugging at her emotions and feeling drawn to him. Clare, too, begins to feel very drawn to Miss Ivy in more ways than one. Can Clare give up his roguish ways and open his heart to loving just one woman? Will Ivy open her heart and give up the path of spinsterhood?
Burke's writing is impeccable, she weaves such a tale of passion, love romance and yes lots of sensuality. The plot is thick, the characters are well developed and she leaves you turning the pages for hours. I highly recommend The Duke of Desire and the whole series!
