Reader Review: The Duke is the first of 7 books about the Knight brothers. The Duke of Hawkscliffe, the Hawk, is the oldest brother and the only natural of his father. He strives to be perfect because of his mother's "sins" and has succeeded so far. Then he meets Bel and his life is never the same. He needed change and she is the perfect one to see that his life changes for the better. I found the relationship to be very well done and could feel the love between the two of them. The story centers around Bel and Hawk trying to find out who seems to be trying to ruin their lives...other than Dolph. I hope Ms Foley's follow up books are as good as this first one. It was very enjoyable.
Driven to uncover the truth about the mysterious death of his ladylove, the Duke of Hawkscliffe will go to any lengths to unmask a murderer. Even if it means jeopardizing his reputation by engaging in a scandalous affair with London's most provocative courtesan--the desirable but aloof Belinda Hamilton.
Bel has used her intelligence and wit to charm the city's titled gentlemen, while struggling to put the pieces of her life back together. She needs a protector, so she accepts Hawk's invitation to become his mistress in name only. He asks nothing of her body, but seeks her help in snaring the same man who shattered her virtue. Together they tempt the unforgiving wrath of society--until their risky charade turns into a dangerous attraction, and Bel must make a devastating decision that could ruin her last chance at love. . . .

Many years ago, as a curly-headed youth on grand tour,
he had fallen madly in love with beauty and so had stopped
in Florence to take drafting lessons from a bonafide Italian
master. Starry-eyed and romantical, he had followed the
light-winged muses south to the Bay of Sorrento, where he
had first heard the ancient Italian proverb "Revenge is a
dish best served cold." He was an old man now, without illusions,
cold and canny as a scheming pope. Beauty had
betrayed him, but decades later, oddly enough, here on this
gray English day, the Sicilian proverb held true.
A neat, slight-framed man, James Breckinridge, the earl
of Coldfell, gripped the ivory head of his walking stick in
gnarled fingers that ached with the needling April rain. He
permitted his footman to assist him down from his luxurious
black town coach while another held an umbrella
The slumbrous quiet in this place was like a church, but
for the pattering of the rain. He turned slowly, looked past
the servants' blanked faces, past the jagged wrought-iron
fence, into St. George's Burying Ground on the Uxbridge
Road, just north of Hyde Park. Three weeks ago, he had
buried his young bride here. Under a chilly gray drizzle,
where the hill curved green, her marble monument rose
like an angry needle to the smoke-colored sky. Beneath it,
just where Coldfell had expected to find him, stood the
tall, powerful, brooding silhouette of a man; wind-blown
and lost, the wide shoulders slumped as the gusty rain
blew his black greatcoat around him.
Coldfell's mouth flattened into a thin lin

I have read many Regency Romances. I enjoy books where "wittly" dialogue between characters is portrayed. The book was the best that I have come across in a long time. Foley has a great talent for defining the characters as well as the scenes in the book. She is a consistent writer with well-developed characters and sensual romance scenes. It was an emotional read and is great at showing the differences between the classes. I enjoyed the struggle that Bel had to overcome her demons and her ultimate decision to be true to herself.

The first book of 10 in the Knight family. Very powerful attraction between hero and heroine. No huge surprises plot wise but the chemistry makes up for it all. Quick easy read, would recommend.
