Reviewed by Annmarie



When her second husband, the Duke of Warneham, dies under suspicious circumstances, the emotionally fragile Antonia, Duchess of Warneham, is surrounded by a cloud of suspicion.  Although she is determined never to marry again, the twice-widowed Antonia finds her future precarious.  Once again, her fate is to be determined by a man, the new Duke of Warneham.

The new Duke of Warneham, Gareth Lloyd, has no desire for the title.  Gareth is happy in his role as a partner in the very successful business, Neville Shipping.  As the only living heir to the dukedom, however, Gareth is forced to accept the role of nobleman and all the responsibilities his new title entails, including his duty to protect the tantalizing Antonia.

Wow!  When I finished reading Liz Carlyle’s Never Deceive a Duke, all I could say was, ‘wow’!  The heartbreak, suffering and cruelty the hero and heroine suffered before finding one another is very affecting.  One cannot help but want them to know nothing but joy in their future. 

Never Deceive a Duke addresses difficult subject matter such as anti-Semitism, rape, and depression with a main theme of a happily ever after romance.  This isn’t your average historical romance!  Liz Carlyle has written a thoughtful, deeply moving and emotional historical romance in Never Deceive a Duke.
