A relationship between Edward Bishop and Aquilla Knoxs escalate quickly when he finds her in the rain. Aquilla is more worried about finding work than a husband. Edward is interested in marriage but believes he has yet to find the girl who can pass a test of trust. This test includes trips to a hospital. In the hallway, Edward purposes to Aquilla. His brother, however, doesn't take the idea of Edward taking a wife too well.
There were many twists that surprised me. These twists added to the enjoyment of the book. The interaction bewteen the Duke of Sutton and the Baron Lindsell was very intriguing.
This is the second regency romance novel by Darcy Burk I have read. It is also the third book in her "Untouchables" series. While "The Duke of Deception" can be read without reading the first two, I recommend that completing the first two books.
