Dukes Are Forever (London Steampunk: The Blue Blood Conspiracy #5) by Bec McMaster
Synopsis: A compromising situation forced him into marriage. But has his wife been working for the enemy all along?
In a steam-fuelled world where vampires once ruled the aristocracy, the Duke of Malloryn knows his nemesis, Lord Balfour, has finally returned to enact his plans of revenge.
Malloryn can trust no one, and when incriminating photographs surface—of an enemy agent stealing a kiss from his wife—he is forced to question just why his wife, Adele, trapped him into marriage.
Is she an innocent pawn caught up in a madman’s games, or is she a double agent working against him?
The only way to discover the truth is to seduce her himself…
Adele Hamilton may have agreed to a loveless marriage in order to protect herself, but that doesn’t stop her heart from yearning for more.
Her husband promised her a cold marriage bed. He swore he’d never touch her. But suddenly he’s engaged in a campaign of seduction—and the only way to keep her wits about her is to fight fire with fire.
The ruthless beauty has locked her heart away, but can she deny the passion that flares between them? And when the truth emerges, will she be the only thing that can save Malloryn’s life?
Or the weapon his enemy will wield against him?
Review: OMG!! Such an awesome conclusion to an awesome series. It was perfect. It was priceless. It was romantic and passionate. It was full of action and suspense, and the whole crew played a role in the finale. Loved. Every. Second. I almost don’t want to write a review because I don’t want to ruin anything; if you have been following along in the London Steampunk world. If you haven’t, where have you been and you need to go and read Kiss of Steel. The series is definitely in my top 5 all time favorite series. Malloryn and Adele are great and the way everything comes together was just plain perfect. I highly recommend the series if you like strong characters, interesting and complex plots and setting, passionate love stories, and Steampunk. (And if you don’t like Steampunk or never heard of it, then start with this series… it is where I was introduced to the genre and it is just awesome). Ok, I’m done, not going to say anything about the plot and conflict and the build up of the relationship because I want to leave it for you all to discover and fall in love with.
