Publisher's Summary

A Stranger to Love

Alaric McLeod, Duke of Strathaven, is known as the Devil Duke for his wicked ways. Tormented by his past, Alaric knows better than to trust a woman, yet finds himself ensnared by a spirited, virtuous virgin - who accuses him of a crime he didn't commit. Is she his worst nightmare...or his salvation?

A Novice to Desire

Emma Kent is an independent country miss cast adrift in the ton. When a depraved encounter with an arrogant rake lands her in intrigue, Emma's honor compels her to do the right thing. But desire challenges her quest for justice, and she must decide: Can she trust her heart to discover the truth?

Bound by Passion and Peril

Alaric and Emma engage in a battle of wits and will. As their attraction flares, the true enemy stalks their every move. With danger looming, will they solve the mystery and find true love before it's too late?

Full of passion and mystery

'The Duke who knew too Much' is not only a steamy and passionate regency romance, but also a very thought-out mystery that fits well into the time period. Emma is a feisty woman who knows her own mind, and Aleric is brooding, hot, and very 'duke-ish', just delish!
It's great to see the entire Kent family again, who made their debut in Callaway's Mayhem in Mayfair series, where I fell in love with them.
A book not to be missed!

I LOVED THIS BOOK...

I loved this book. It had twists and turns and many surprises. It is very very steamy, however, I happen to love that!! Can't wait for the next book in the series!! The Narrator was good. She didn't do anything that took away from the story. I would definitely listen to her again. I recommend this book if you love some steam with your romance!! I do...

4.75 stars

I really enjoyed this book, almost perfect. The story wasn’t stupid, she wasn’t annoying, there was no angst, it wasn’t slow, and he was divine! It was very steamy even though the actual deed didn’t come until close to the end, there were lots to keep it hot along the way. The narration was great, I loved that she was able to do a great male voice for Aleric but the only complaint I have is that a lot of the males sounded the same making it hard to tell one from the other. Highly recommend and worth the credit.

How do I love thee . . . unconditionally?

Firstly, this is definitely adult reading, exploring multiple dimensions on what it means to declare love, show love, be loved and accept love. There are initial scenes in brothels which may not be to some people's taste. Yet, parts of the story are bittersweet and poignant, intense, humorous and suspenseful. Both primary characters grow in depth and maturity, are well developed and well written. Alaric's and Emma's coupling is a tense relationship juxtaposing physical passion versus intimacy and vulnerability. While Emma grows from extremely naive to insightful, Alaric grows from cold to caring. Along the way with the support of excellently written family characters many mysteries are solved. Erin Mallon provides competent narration.

Some like it hot!

I loved the transformation of the main characters. I also found the steamy attraction between Emma and the Duke to be most enjoyable!

Dear Grace, You Naughty Woman

All I can say is this author writes what I love to hear: the sexy, lewd, lascivious, and lustful words of a passionate man. It's sizzling hot. Nuff said. Loved it. American Erin Mallon is not suited to a phony British accent.

Unacceptable

I'm not a prude and I don't mind some fairly steamy scenes but this story is just plain X rated. At first you have sympathy for the Duke but after he drags an innocent woman against her will to a brothel in order to make his point, I found him unredeemable. I found it an instance of non consensual participation in sexual deviance. regardless of attraction, this woman should have slapped him in the face and let him clean up his own mess. She was not in the wrong when she reported seeing what she assumed was an assault and his character should have been smart enough to be aware of that instead of being " infuriated" by her. I couldn't get past this and will not read anymore of her books in the future.

All I have to say is Dayuuuuumm 😂😂

I did not expect all this spicy business! Woww a bit too much heat 🥵 It’s my first book from Grace Callaway. I loved it! The storyline was original. It was nicely told by Erin. I think she’s becoming one of my favorite audible narrator.

Erin Mallon

The narrator has clearly been taking lessons. I wrote a scathing rebuke of her in the review of the first book in this series. By the time I got to this one I had to check to see who was narrating because I didn’t believe it was Mallon. Bravo. Now if you can just get her to pronounce “ma ma” and “pa pa” correctly I’ll be thoroughly pleased. :)
