Welcome to the online home of Darcy Burke, award-winning historical romance author. No, that’s not her real house above, but she’d sure like it to be. Maybe it’s because her mother was born in England or the collection of Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana memorabilia she inherited from her grandmother. Whatever the reason, Darcy loves all things British*, especially the history. (And I make a mean Yorkshire pudding.)
*With the exception of tomatoes. What is it with tomatoes for breakfast?
When the beast leaves his lair…

Scarred both inside and out, Jason can’t possibly hope to regain a place within the ton…until he meets an alluring and persuasive young lady. When she offers to help him reclaim respectability, he’s tempted not by the possibility of a better reputation, but by the lure of seduction. With her by his side, he not only sees what he’s been missing, but also how much he stands to lose.
