Blodeuedd asked me to join in on listing our favorite Duke books throughout the years. What a challenge! Especially since some books do not have "Duke" in the title. This was a fun challenge. I went through my old reviews and Goodreads to find some of my favorite Dukes throughout the last few years. :D
First - Blodeuedd's picks:
Blodeuedd's TOP TEN DUKES
The Bastard you need to read about!
"He was so broken, so dark, so without conscience. A borderline sociopath. ..I loved him."
"But truthfully the best part is the world. Rich and just awesome. Zombies, nanos in the blood that control you and make you stronger, people with drills for arms, flying ships, seas that have krakens and other monsters."
A stuffy proper Duke meets a young woman who is everything but
"I did have my moments where I thought about him as Mr Darcy, because he was all pride and stood above everything else."
