It all started with a kitten named Jade The progression of the emotions from anger and despair to acceptance and love is written in a very believable way that really makes this story so wonderful Okay, so I did not like Emmaline through about half of the book but as the story progresses her demeanor changes and you see her in a different light Lionel on the other hand was so easy to like from the beginning He is so distraught, you ache for him It was lovely watching their changes and seeing how [...]

    17.

    18. I feel like I say this after finishing every book in this series, but this book s couple is my absolute favorite of all of them Somehow it s true every time, and even so with Emmaline and Lionel They start as enemies at least Emmaline believes Lionel is her enemy, and she gets through months of her life by plotting how she ll get even with him but end up as the best of friends and lovers, as the family that both of them have longed for for so long How Ms Burke gets us and them, of course from e [...]


    19. I LOVE Darcy s historical romances This book read very smoothly I was engaged from the very beginning, and I especially liked Lionel I got to like him as the story went on, and I really felt for him and hoped he could find happiness.Conversely, I was not a fan of Emmaline at first In my opinion, I felt her actions and venom towards Lionel were a bit overkill, especially given the situation she put him in As the story went on, I liked her ,and ultimately, I admired her relentless protection of L [...]


    20.

    21. This is the sixth book in the Untouchables series and so far my favorite of all of them I ve been having a bit of difficulty with this series I ve rated them from two to five stars, and this is, obviously, one with the five and the reason for it is the hero.This man had so much baggage that I honestly had doubts if he d ever get rid of them all My heart ached for him and at the beginning of the book I truly didn t think that the heroine was the right one for him Leave it to Ms Burke to disabuse [...]


    22. This is another easy and enjoyable Regency read from the Untouchables series, even if it does stretch the point of credulity a little too far in some places to accommodate the plot It s also a fairly unusual romance in that our heroine marries the man who killed her husband something about which she really wasn t happy at the time.It s a good thing I liked Lionel, because the idea that even a peer could kill two men in a duel including another peer and just hang out in Dublin for a year each tim [...]

    26. I actually have no idea how to rate this book so basically I m writing this review in hopes that it becomes clear Buckle up, kids, it s gonna be a bumpy ride.So this was my first book by Darcy Burke and it s the sixth in a series so obviously the best place to jump into things But while I didn t know all the players, necessarily, it was easy to pick up the game Emmaline married in haste and had begun to regret in leisure Due to this, she made a bad call and felt subsequent guilt over it when her [...]
