    2. I didn't feel the love here It was somewhat mechanical, IMHOI felt that the hero was too cold and distant, even when the author was trying to depict him as out of his head for the heroineAlso the heroine was not much to my liking She was too afraid of loosing her properties, even if it was described as fear of loosing her freedomThe tumble into bed too easily. The heroine do not have any problem with having sex with the hero - it's too far-fetched for me! I love a strong heroine, but for me she [...]

    3. 4.5 starsThe Most Dangerous Duke in London gets Madeline Hunter’s new Decadent Dukes Society series off to a strong start with an extremely readable and engaging tale of a man seeking revenge, an old family enmity and the woman caught in the middle. The romance is a delightful, sensual slow-burn, and in addition, there’s mystery and intrigue, a whiff of espionage, lots of witty banter and a wonderfully written friendship between the hero and his two closest friends (both of whom will feature [...]

    4. Madeline Hunter's writing has a subtle way of telling a story that engages my interest long before I realize it. Some stories benefit or suffer based on what you read before, and while I know I would enjoy this one regardless of when I read it, I certainly have had some frustrating reads that may have bumped this up half a star. Thank goodness for concise writing, strong plots and relatable characters. It was what I needed in a read at the moment. I loved the way this story unfolded slowly and b [...]

    6. Madeline Hunter is one of my favourite authors. It’s that simple. I’ve loved every single one of her books I’ve read, and I loved this one, too.There was just so much to like about The Most Dangerous Duke in London. I wasn’t sure how we were going to get close to the usual word count when the hero declared to the heroine they were engaged (hilariously and without her permission) right at the beginning, but there’s a big, complex, interesting plot to follow.I like that the heroine was u [...]

    7. I've given this a D+ for narration at AudioGals - seriously, I get so bloody fed up when publishers employ completely the wrong narrator for the job. It's not fair to them or to the author. I gave the book 4.5 stars and would definitely recommend reading rather than listening.I’ve read and enjoyed a number of Madeline Hunter’s books and I count myself among her fans, but given she’s one of the biggest names in historical romance, she’s being very poorly served when it comes to audio. Her [...]

    8. I just didn't like the MCs. He was obsessed with revenge, she was an independent woman involved in secretly publishing a journal for women. She allowed her grandmother to totally dominate her- so much for strength of character- and happily embarked on a purely sexual affair with the hero because she didn't ever want to get married. Like that was easy-peasy as a single young lady in those days!He wanted to find out the circumstances surrounding his father's death (view spoiler)[suicide (hide spoi [...]

    9. This was a well-written book, so 3 stars, but I just didn't feel it. The hero was such a cold fish. He compartmentalised constantly, so that the heroine was popped into a box and he got on with his main agenda. While I understood his need to resolve the questions surrounding his father's death, I just cannot respect or like a person who is prepared to avenge some wrong by punishing other innocent members of the family. It makes them no better than the people who wronged them in the first place. [...]

    10. Review in Portuguese: pepitamagica/204.5*I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review.I think I’ve found my favourite Madeline Hunter’s book so far. Although I always appreciate and like her books, they sometimes seem to be a bit below my expectations – but not this one. The Most Dangerous Duke in London doesn’t fit that category. I really enjoyed it and couldn’t put it down. The base of the plot is related to revenge, and these are usually my favourite plots, but in this case, [...]

    11. The Dowager Countess of Marwood summons her grandson Adam Penrose, Duke of Stratton, and she orders him that to solve the long-time feud between their family and the Cheswicks, he should marry the granddaughter, Emilia. Adam wants to avenge the wrongs done to his family, so be it; he doesn’t care. Adam is not precisely enthralled by Emilia however, but when he sees her older sister Clara, it’s another matter; the indomitable Clara might just make him more amenable to a political union. Clara [...]

    12. It was my first book from Madeline Hunter. Her writing is beautiful, enjoyed dailouges & interaction between characters. But the plot left me looking for more. The jump from lust to love was too quick, too rough. Their chemistry was sizzling but emotional depth was missing. Heroine was independent, but her attitude sometime feel too much, specially in Historical era book . Also the endHero had lost too much. I feel bad for his family.Looking forward for the next two Dukes. Will going to try [...]

    13. Good book about a man bent on revenge and a woman determined to keep her independence. Adam has spent the last five years in France, where he took his mother to escape the ugly rumors of treason after his father's suicide. While there, he gained quite a reputation for engaging in several duels over his father's honor. Now he is back, determined to find the truth, clear his father's name, and exact revenge on those responsible. He's pretty sure that the Earl of Marwood, neighbor and long-time fam [...]

    14. 3.5 Stars!The Most Dangerous Duke in London was a wonderful romance between a hero seeking revenge for his father's death and a heroine determined not to live by society's rules.Adam Penrose the Duke of Stratton has finally returned to England afters years spent in France. Adam only has one thing in mind for his return, revenge. The first step in his plan? Marry Clara Cheswick, the daughter of his family's sworn enemy. Clara however wants nothing to do with marriage which does cause a bit of a p [...]

    15. 3.5 stars. I have trouble rating this one. It was well written, engaging, sensible, competent. Good characters, interesting dialogue, proper use of sex i.e not just as a place holder. Let me state that I did enjoy the opening few scenes. And his declaration of their engagement at the beginning was hilarious. But overall I didn't quite love it. It was missing that 'umph' that makes me fall in love with a book. I felt no pain whatsoever at leaving the characters at the end. No longing to spend mor [...]

    16. This was the first book I have read by this author. It was an easy read but nothing special. I will not be continuing with this series.

    17. When Adam, the Duke of Stratton, is called to the home of an elderly duchess, he doesn't know what to expect. The families are enemies. His father committed suicide after the late duke, head of this family, promoted stories of treason about him. Adam is determined to get to the truth now. So when the duchess offers him her granddaughter in marriage, in order to bring peace between them, he's astonished. But not interested in the young girl. Then he sees Clara. Clara is older, independent and was [...]

    18. As reviewed at Roses Are Blue: wp/p3QRh4-yAAdam Penrose, Duke of Stratton, has returned to England after five years of self exile in France. Adam left when his father, the victim of rumors of treason, killed himself. While in France, he fought three duels defending his father's honor - two of the men died, and the third was seriously injured. Now the French government wants him gone, and he has been summoned home to England by the Monarch himself. Most of society is giving Adam a wide berth, as [...]

    19. This is the first book in Madeline Hunter’s new series and I think you’ll enjoy it. I certainly did. Adam Penrose, Duke of Stratton, has been living for several years in France. When his father committed suicide he and his French mother moved to France. He has returned to England to discover who started the rumors that his father aided the French during the Napoleonic wars. His best friends from childhood, the dukes of Bentwood and Langford, will help him. His country neighbor, the Dowager C [...]

    20. I liked the hero and the heroine, but I was bored with the family mystery by about 50%. I liked the duke (and his friends), but I felt too much time was spent on the mystery for the entire book and therefore less on romance (although he was sweet with presents). I would have liked an epilogue or at least to have seen her reveal her publication to him. I also thought the otherwise independent and smart heroine fell into bed with him rather easily.over and over and over again.

    21. Madeline Hunter begins her Decadent Dukes Society series with an engaging, slow-burn romance. The Most Dangerous Duke in London takes its time building a relationship between the main characters while drawing the reader deeper into rivalries and intrigues simmering between two influential London families.Receiving a summons from the Countess of Marwood is something of a surprise to Adam Penrose, Duke of Stratton. For generations, the Penrose and Cheswick families have been at odds, so the Counte [...]

    22. *I received a copy from the author via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.Who doesn't love an independent heroine! I was hooked from the start wanting to know about the feud between the families and seeing how the romance would happen. I love stories about revenge and finding the truth and this one didn't disappoint. I was not expecting the truth that was revealed or how scandalous everything was, but that's why I loved it. Her family and his friends all added to the story and made me wa [...]

It is convenient that you desire me too.Adam Penrose, Duke of Stratton, has arrived back in England on a mission. He is determined to discover the reasons behind his father’s suicide.

    24. Exciting beginning to Madeline Hunter's new 'Decadent Dukes Society' trilogy! In addition to the main hero and heroine in this book, we get a great introduction to the next two dukes who will have their stories. Can't wait!!I really liked our hero - Adam Penrose, the Duke of Stratton. He has been living under a shadow for years and even fled the country to avoid some of it. However, the shadow followed him to France where he was involved in duels because of some people's belief that his father h [...]

    25. 3.5 stars. Madeline Hunter is a reliable author of decent-to-pretty-great historical romances; this book is decent, but has already started to evaporate from my brain. Old Latin Teacher on reviewed this book's foibles and I agree with her that this might be a quite good book from another author, but it is "fine" coming from this author. He's a duke who has been living in France under a cloud of family scandal (did his father commit treason and help finance Napoleon's army?) and returns to inves [...]

    26. Reading the excerpt on MH's website! This had me snorting!! GOLD!“My sister is both lovely and bright. She would make a splendid duchess, of course, only not for you. I am relieved you lacked decisiveness.”“Do not blame me for the delay in knowing my mind on the matter. There I was, making my decision about a lovely dove, when a black crow flew by and distracted me.”Crow? Why, the—“Then the crow flapped her wings in my face and turned her tail to fly away.” He walked over until he [...]

    27. I have to say that Madeline books have been a constant favorite throughout time since I picked up my first book from her 17 years ago.And author that has remained on by auto by list no matter what books she publishes but I have to say that I have loved so many of her titles I just could not just pick one. I enjoyed her latest tale with Adam and Clara it was such a sweet love story and about revenge.I loved seeing a strong independent heroine in this story especially for its time period when wome [...]
