Jack Barrett has great ambitions for the parliament. The last thing he needs is temptation in the form of a journalist who is hell bent on dolling out justice. She just happens to be the one person who can destroy his career.

Viola is a pariah. She spends her days disguised as a man who works as a journalist. Now she has the perfect news to establish her credibility. Jack is the only one who she can ask for help but turns out he is too close to the whole scandal.

Every moment they spent with each other, Jack and Viola are drawn to each other. Soon they’ll fall in love and everything they worked for will come falling down.

Oh lord I read this book in one sitting because I was too invested.

Viola is my role model and the ultimate feminist icon. I love her and her quest to teach men a thing or two about women. I don’t know how she lived in that time without committing a couple murders. I adore her story arch so much. She deserved the story a strong woman should get and I loved it.

Jack is my favourite fool. I giggled so hard when he explained how he found out it was Viola pretending to be a man. That was the highlight of my day. I love that he was a low key guy who didn’t go raking all over the town.

I will be honest and say that I kinda didn’t care about the MP scandal. I only wanted to read their love blooming and them making hungry angsty eyes at each other.

This story was sweet and these two were entirely adorable together. I’m super pumped for more books in this series.

Meet the unforgettable men of London’s most notorious tavern, The Wicked Duke. Seductively handsome, with charm and wit to spare, one night with these rakes and rogues will never be enough…

 One Night of Scandal, an all-new standalone in the historical romance series The Wicked Dukes Club from USA Today bestselling author Darcy Burke, is available now!

Jack Barrett is an ambitious member of parliament with no time or desire for a wife. When he catches the Duke of Eastleigh’s sister sneaking inside one of London’s private gentlemen’s clubs, he’s shocked—and dangerously charmed—and assumes the role of protector, only to discover she has the means to destroy him.

Social pariah Lady Viola Fairfax masquerades as a man to pen a column in a popular women’s magazine. When she stumbles upon a brewing scandal that implicates a prominent MP, she seizes the chance to establish herself as a real journalist. However, the infuriating and intoxicating man may not be the radical he’s purported to be, and the more time they spend together, the more she risks the one thing she’s sworn never to do: fall in love.
