Summary

Winner of the Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery and Suspense

National Excellence in Romance Fiction Award Finalist

He's a policeman on a hunt for justice. She's a proud daughter of the London criminal underworld. Danger brings them together...and desire binds them in this steamy enemies to lovers romance. 

Shattered by betrayal, former scholar Harry Kent has made a new life for himself as a policeman. Sent on a dangerous covert mission, he must protect a clever and wicked beauty who specializes in disguises and mischief. She stands for everything he scorns - and seduces him with every look of her innocent eyes....

A princess of London's criminal underworld, Tessa Todd wants to defend her family against cutthroat enemies. Her powerful grandfather, however, insists upon keeping her under lock and key. When she is assigned a stoic and damnably handsome new bodyguard, she resists his dominant ways - and a passionate war of wills begins....

Thrown together by crisis, Harry and Tessa will test the bounds of desire, loyalty, and trust. On the run from their foes and from their own hearts, they must find salvation in each other - before time runs out. 

Grace's books feature hot historical romance, fun and feel-good happily ever afters, and exciting mystery and adventure. All of her books are standalones, which can also be enjoyed as part of her interconnected series.

OUTSTANDING AUDIBLE NARRATION

Marian Hussey outdid herself. She really bought this story to life!!

Even though the title of the story is misleading. I still gave it 5 stars. The story is Not about a Duke but a police constable who goes undercover in the underworld of St. Giles. He lies about his true Identity.

When asked to be the bodyguard for Tessa Todd Black by the King of the Underworld Tessa's grandfather Black Harry Kent knows this is his way into investigating the notorious Black. Instead, he fines his self falling in love with Tessa and admiring and respecting Black.

This is a well written story with great characters brought to live by and excellent narrator Marian Hussey!!

Ode to the Kents

This was a masterful addition to the series. I always knew Harry was going to be a freak (in a good way) and he didn't disapoint!!!! As for Tessa, she's one bad ass chick. I wish she could've gotten some real revenge on her bullies, but alas, it wasn't meant to be. Man, I also think this book should have happened before Polly's and Primrose's stories. It definitely could've added an additional edge to Primose's story especially considering Bartholomew Black played a role with Primrose being reunited with her family.

From Mayhem in Mayfair to the Heart of Enquiry to now, the Dukes...every damn extra credit I've purchased this month to see this through was worthwhile!

Im skipping Ransom and Adam Garrity's story though (for now). I need some time to get over how cowardly Ransom was in this book before I can see him as a hero in another. To think of Adam Garrity without a memory, goodness - I just can't cope with that drama (also because I'm still mad at Garrity for his behavior with Charity and Apollo in their story - he was a straight bastard, despite Charity getting his ass good). Now, to the last currently in the series - Wickham. Because Garrity was going to do Wickham dirty, too, had Gabby not stepped in during Vi's story and I have to know how Wick turned his life around.

I know they are supposed to be standalones but this series is addictive and yes, the language is rough and gritty at the sex scenes but, those scenes are undoubtedly hot and steeeeeaaaammmmmyyy (and the story lines are good, too). I'm glad I didn't pay attention to the prudes who complained about the language in those sex scenes, though - because had I done so, I would've missed out on an awesome ride!

Long live the Duchess!
