For a dashing duke and the proprietress of a secret, sensual club in the London Underground, passion could lead to love… if they dare.
Thomas Powell, the new Duke of Northfield, knows he should be proper and principled, like his father. No more dueling, or carousing, or frequenting masked parties where Londoners indulge their wildest desires. But he’s not ready to give up his freedom just yet. The club is an escape, a place where he can forget about society and the weight of his title… and see her, the woman he’s wanted forever.
Lucia—known as Amina—manages the Orchid Club, a secret society where fantasies become reality. But for Lucia, it’s strictly business, profitable enough to finance her dream: a home for the lost girls of the streets. Surrounded by lovers, she only observes, unwilling risk her future for any man. No member has ever intrigued her…until him, the masked stranger whose heated looks sear her skin. After months of suppressed longing, they dare to give in to temptation…
But the late duke’s legacy comes with a shocking secret, and the scandal threatens to destroy everything Tom loves… his family, the Orchid Club, and even Lucia.

Review of Dare to Love A Duke
Review (4.0 Stars): Dare to Love A Duke was a delightfully charming yet forbidden romance between two characters that had enough chemistry that it literally caused the pages of this book to sizzle. Lucia was such a great character, who had so many facets to her personality because she was willing to give up the man that she fell in love with to protect the people that she was responsible for by running the Orchid Club. Thomas was weighed down by his own burdens of responsibility after his father died, leaving him to protect his family’s reputation by keeping a horrible secret from everyone for fear of scandal. These two characters fought their own feelings for one another but sometimes love is willing to risk it all.
Dare To Love A Duke is the third book in the London Underground series and I just adored these characters. Lucia was willing to do whatever it takes to keep the Orchid Club going and to give her employees a chance for a better life away from the streets of London. Tom was used to having wealth and privilege but being with Lucia brought him something that his wealth couldn’t by bringing him the chance to find true love. This story will stick with me for some time because these characters learned that love can be worth the risk and your heart will always guide you in doing what is right.
