Never Deceive a Duke - Liz Carlyle Never Deceive a Duke struck me as more of a murder mystery than a romance. Almost all of the action has taken place before we enter the story. So the plot is mostly a revisiting/revealing of events important in the mystery as well as events important in the lives of the two angsty protagonists. There was a little bit of real time action but not enough or of the character to hold my interest (and the H/h relationship was dull for me as well). Liz Carlyle's writing is good, meaning I think I would enjoy her work if I found a plot that was my style.
