 May 19, 2015
Since his notorious wife died in mysterious circumstances, rumours about James, the handsome Duke of Trent, have scandalized society. Now, he must marry again – but finding an eligible woman willing to overlook his past won’t be easy.

Defiantly single, Lady Alethea Sinclair has already turned down six offers of marriage. She prefers living on her own terms and refuses to answer to any man. Yet when Alethea meets the seductive and enigmatic Duke she finds herself strangely drawn to him.

Intrigued by Alethea’s defiance of society’s expectations, James is instantly taken with the willful beauty and soon they are enjoying a playful flirtation. And when circumstances force them into a comprising situation, he does the honourable thing and marries her.

But adjusting to the constraints of marriage doesn’t come easily to the rebellious Alethea and, despite their growing feelings for each other, the Duke’s troubled past keeps getting in the way. Can they learn to trust each other and give love a chance before it’s too late?

A steamy Georgian romance about desire, the importance of staying true to yourself and the power of the past to cast a shadow on the present.


Fast paced tale of secrets, betrayal, passion, second chances and romance. The H/H are likeable and their stories believable. The storyline is steady, engaging and interesting with a bit of mystery and passion. Fans of Historical Romance with a bit of added Mystery are sure to enjoy “My Dark Duke”. Well written with plenty of romance and secrets. An enjoyable read with a satisfying ending. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Huntington.
