ARC book review: The Duke of Daring

The biggest surprise was the use of the title in the book. Other books that I read did not include the name of the book. Andrew Dartford is dubbed "The Duke of Daring" by Lucy Parnell and two other women.

Neither Andrew nor Lucy want to be married. Andrew suffers from survivor's guilt. Lucy does not want to be left like her grandmother and mother were.

In one chapter alone, I felt joy and excitement one moment. However worry was not very far. This is where I questioned if the book would have a happy ending.
The Duke of Daring was written by Darcy Burke. While I have read another of Mrs. Burke's books, this is the first regency romance novel I read.

Rating: ☺☺☺☺☺

First review

This is my first attempt at a book review. I apologize if it is not as detailed as it probably should be. 

The book is called Where the Heart Is. It was written by Darcy Burke. 

The main male charater is Derek Sumner. He is an executive and volunteer fire fighter. While responding to a fire, he meets Chloe English. She is a teacher that left a job, a fiance and Pittsburg.

I quickly fell in love with Derek because he behaved like a knight in shining armor.

The book was easy to read and the action started almost right away. Both are what I like in a book.
