Publisher Description

Sparks fly when a daring diva clashes with an ice-cold war hero in the newest thrilling romance in USA Today bestselling author Julie Anne Long’s Palace of Rogues series.

She arrives in the dead of night, a mob out for blood at her heels: Mariana Wylde, the “Harlot of Haywood Street,” an opera diva brought low by a duel fought for her favors. But the ladies of the Grand Palace on the Thames think they can make a silk purse from scandal: They’ll restore her reputation and share in her triumph...provided they can keep her apart from that other guest.

 
Coldly brilliant, fiercely honorable, General James Duncan Blackmore, the Duke of Valkirk, is revered, feared, desired...but nobody truly knows him. Until a clash with a fiery, vulnerable beauty who stands for everything he scorns lays him bare. It’s too clear the only cure for consuming desire is conquest, but their only chance at happiness could lead to their destruction.

The legendary duke never dreamed love would be his last battleground. Valkirk would lay down his life for Mariana, but his choice is stark: risk losing her forever, or do the one thing he vowed he never would...surrender.

Outstanding entry in the Palace of Rogues series

I have greatly enjoyed the three previous books in Julie Anne Long’s Palace of Rogues series and knew I would enjoy “After Dark with the Duke”. It went far beyond enjoy, however.
I’m still not sure if it was the characters—Mariana Wylde, disgraced opera singer, and James Blackmore, Duke of Valkirk—or the circumstances, and development, of their relationship, exactly, that gripped my heart, which then preceded to wreak havoc with my emotions. But whatever it was that had me falling in love with Mariana and the duke it was by turns amusing (and, at times, not-so-amusing) and intriguing, and it was very ably aided and abetted by the regulars at The Grand Palace on the Thames.
So far “After Dark with the Duke” is my favourite Julie Anne Long book, but I have said that many times before.
