Dangerous in Diamonds ´ Ploy his considerable mental faculties to finding answers to the uestions that fascinate himWhen Daphne Joyes rejects this notorious hedonist’s seduction she assumes that he will forget about her and continue on his path to hell Instead her beauty grace and formidable composure captivate him and she becomes one of those fascin. This is the final in a series and references the characters from those earlier books You don't need to have read the others to enjoy this one Probably But I'd still recommend itI've been looking forward to this book from the beginning Or rather I looked forward to a romance containing either Daphne or Castleford Bonus that it's both Castleford has been the go to guy for out of the box solutions for the guys in the series and Daphne the same for the women So they're already strong characters before we start and I looked forward to fleshing them outUnfortunately the first half of the story has Castleford being a huge jerkwad who decides that he really must have Daphne Which okay that's fine and all but circumstances at the start put her rather decisively in his power he inherits the home and lands she has had use of for the last six years And he uses that power to coerce her options to his liking; like living close by and forcing her into his orbit It's not uite sexual coercion but it skirts a very fine line He never says sex me up or I'll turn you and the people you care about out on your ear but he certainly implies it and her internal dialogue takes that threat very seriously Hunter seems content that we see from his internal dialogue that he never intends to carry through with that and we see him making provisions for her future regardless of her decisions and rather handsomely at that But I paid attention and Daphne never gets even a small whiff of this and is left to believe that she must comply with his whims or elseOkay it's actually worse than that view spoilerCastleford mellows in his treatment of Daphne treating her like an actual person rather than a tasty sex toy but while the threat retreats to the background it hangs over her until near the very end hide spoiler Read ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free È Madeline Hunter

I have been anticipating Castleford’s story since I first met him back in the first book of this series Ravishing in Red He was drunk debauched arrogant thoroughly wicked and I was helplessly intrigued He was almost unlikable in the beginning but he grew through each book and stole the show whenever he had page time I think this book can be read as a standalone but I don’t think you’ll have the same investment and fascination with Castleford if you haven’t seen him evolve throughout the series It’s like Bewcastle in Mary Balogh’s Slightly series You need that build up and growth throughout the series to really make the character pop I’m pleased that the Castleford we see in this book is the same that we saw in the previous books I was kind of afraid his character would be whitewashed But no he’s still the same man He has an ego the size of Texas and he expects to get his way He’s a duke and it shows He knows that he can be as bad as he wants and people will still fawn and simper over him It also helps that he’s uite attractive and has a wicked charm under all that debauchery I’ll be honest Castleford carried this book for me I found that Daphne lacked the personality that was hinted at in the previous books Even though I sympathized with her situation I found her a little lackluster I didn’t dislike her at all but I found myself a little bewildered by Daphne’s role as the catalyst for Castleford’s change I understood in the beginning because Castleford was just temporarily changing his behavior to win her That’s smart and calculating and just like him But as we read we realized that he was slowly growing and changing permanently which was lovely to watch It’s that change that left me confused I just didn’t see the click between them that would have explained thatIgnoring the catalyst of it I loved watching Castleford change It happened slowly and felt authentic I loved that he would not readily admit what was happening in the long run Any new objection by Daphne that was stated or implied was uickly dealt with—no matter how much it galled him Some of them led to uite hilarious scenes ”Mrs Joyes did I hear correctly Are you accusing me of being diseasedThe possibility is there That is all I am saying One cannot be too careful”I agree Which is why I am most careful I assure you that I am not a danger to youShe swallowed hard One never knowsHis gaze sharpened One most certainly knowsThe results of recent debauches may not be apparent yet to you” Can you imagine Castleford’s reaction to that LOLI enjoyed Daphne’s reaction to Castleford’s maneuvering of her in the beginning He manipulates her into staying in London so he can seduce her She knows what he’s doing but she doesn’t flip out about it She lets him play his little game and continues to deny him what he wants All the while she continues to pursue her own goal The fact that she never lets Castleford mow her over pleased me Castleford’s the kind of guy who will push as far as you will let him He’ll back off when you show him the line but he’ll plot and deviously sneak until that point I liked that she had a realistic struggle over whether or not she could say no without it rebounding on her Even if Castleford didn’t threaten her she would have had to be completely dim not to fear the wrath of a duke The friendship between Castleford and the previous heroes is just as good as it ever was The scenes between them popped and I found it hilarious that Hawkeswell was so devastated by the thought of Castleford reforming The scenes between them and the easy camaraderie were one of the highlights of the book for me I also loved that even though Castleford wanted to be with Daphne he was mortified by the thought of anyone knowing the lengths he went to please her in certain situations He kept making her promise not to tell anyone becasue it would “ruin” his reputation Although I enjoyed a lot about this book there were some things that bothered me As I stated before I felt that Daphne’s personality wasn’t as developed as I would have liked I also found her plot to discredit a certain someone in the book rather lame It wouldn’t have succeeded at all if Castleford hadn’t shown up and put his two cents in I also wished the spark between Daphne and Castleford could have flared a little bit Hunter is not what I would term a hot writer so I wasn’t expecting to be blown away by that but the attraction was a bit low key than I was expecting for Castleford’s story I also didn’t like the surprise at the very end I felt it needed build up to feel natural to the storyEven though I did have gripes I was pleased enough with Castleford’s story to not let them bother me too much I’m glad that Hunter finally gave us a story about him and gave us a look at what makes him tickFavorite uote It may take you a year to get an exuisite woman into bed but I assure you it will be a week in my case Or two perhaps Three at the outside But a year was ridiculous and never was out of the uestionThen you must have an ace in your hand that I do not know aboutOnly my charmHawkeswell thought that was hilarious He laughed so rudely he turned red
