New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean returns with the final book in the Bareknuckle Bastards series focusing on the third brother Duke and the sweet Grace.
Grace Condry has spent a lifetime running from her past. Betrayed as a child by her only love and raised on the streets, she now hides in plain sight as queen of London's darkest corners. Grace has a sharp mind and a powerful right hook and has never met an enemy she could not best, until the man she once loved returns.
Single-minded and ruthless, Ewan, Duke of Marwick, has spent a decade searching for the woman he never stopped loving. A long-ago gamble may have lost her forever, but Ewan will go to any lengths to win Grace back... and make her his duchess.
Reconciliation is the last thing Grace desires. Unable to forgive the past, she vows to take her revenge. But revenge requires keeping Ewan close, and soon her enemy seems to be something else altogether?something she can't resist, even as he threatens the world she's built, the life she's claimed... and the heart she swore he'd never steal again.

MacLean works magic, crafting a magnificent romance that's as satisfying as it is subversive * The New York Times *
While this story excels as a second-chance, redemption love story, what really makes it stand out is the unabashedly feminist exploration of power and how it ties in with identity and desire. The cinematic finale draws the series to a wholly satisfying conclusion. Dark, daring, delicious, and absolutely delightful * Kirkus Reviews (starred review) *
MacLean reinforces her place as a master of historical romance with another exemplary, empowering love story that brilliantly showcases her flair for gloriously insightful characterization, grandly entertaining plotting, and gorgeously sensual prose * Booklist *
Powered by MacLean's brilliant prose and perfect pacing, Daring and the Duke is a locomotive from the start that keeps gaining steam and barrelling forward to the heart-breaking, heart-mending end -- Kennedy Ryan, USA Today bestselling author
