The biggest surprise was the use of the title in the book. Other books that I read did not include the name of the book. Andrew Dartfor is dubbed "The Duke of Daring" by Lucy Parnell and two other women.
Neither Andrew nor Lucy want to be married. Andrew suffers from survivor's guilt. Lucy does not want to be left like her grandmother and mother were.
In one chapter alone, I felt joy and excitement one moment. However worry was not very far. This is where I questioned if the book would have a happy ending.
