“The Duke of Distraction” by Darcy Burke is the 12th book in “The Untouchable” series.
Although the 12th in the series, the story still allows someone (who has randomly joined the series) like me to follow the tale with ease.
Of course the main focuses is the characters of the story, Namely the Earl of Ware, Felix Havers and Miss Sarah Colton.
Felix is set in never to love and marry due to his past. While Sarah resides herself to spinsterhood. She on the other hand has a plan to open a millinery and be able to support herself.
Her parents have alternative ideas and insist she needs to marry. Felix being a good friend to Sarah’s brother, offers to help her in seeking out a husband.
The story flows well, and brings back prior series couples back with no issues – which I’m sure fans of the series adored the follow ups of these characters.
There was a dark twist in the story at the point in which the power couple feelings change towards each other. This in itself was heart wrenching.
