Dueling With The Duke. (The Brotherhood Of The Sword) by Robyn De Hart. ARC Review.

England, 1838

Gabriel Campbell, Duke of Lynford never intended to carry that title, but when his reckless brother gets himself killed in a duel over a woman, Gabe has no choice. Now he’s sworn off love, blaming the woman that broke his brother’s heart and led to his untimely death.

Lilith Crisp, Lady Thornton, knew from a young age that pretty girls grow up and get married off to the highest bidder. Being paraded around London as her husband’s trophy has taught her some unique skills and now she can manipulate any man for his darkest secrets.

Gabriel's position in the Brotherhood of the Sword leads him directly to Lilith’s door. For Gabe, Lilith is the one woman he’s always wanted, and Lilith is now forced to deal with a man who seems immune to her charms. But a secret about Lilith’s niece brings them together to face a danger that threatens not only their lives, but the fate of England’s Crown. Resisting Lilith is getting more and more difficult and Gabe finally recognizes that he can’t keep blaming her for his brother’s fate. Finding love means forgiving the past and that might be the one thing they simply can’t do…

This is a historical, romantic suspense,  set in early Victorian times.
Gabriel Campbell the Duke of Lynford is part of the Brotherhood.  They are like a secret service tasked to protect the young queen. A man has been shot while attempting to assassinate Victoria. Now the Brotherhood must investigate because it's unlikely he was working alone. The best place to start is with his wife. A woman Gabriel already has good reason to hate.
Lady Lilith Thornton has been used by her domineering husband for years. Now she must grab her hidden nest egg and her niece and run.
An intriguing mystery that grabs you on the first page. Full of action , suspense and danger. Our hero is nursing a broken heart that no one knows about. Now he is battling with his honour and his conscience.
Our heroine has a low opinion of herself, but grasps her chance at freedom until her niece's life is on the line.
I loved every page.
