Publisher's Summary

The Duke of Castleford has been so bad for so long that scandal can't be bothered to rise up around him anymore. To alleviate the boredom of his privileged life, he occupies himself with drinking and whoring, not to mention the occasional duel. When something piques his interest, however, he has been known to emerge from his ennui and employ his considerable mental faculties to finding answers to the questions that fascinate him.

When 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 fascinations to him. That he intends to have her, and soon, is actually the least of the dangers that his pursuit of her presents. More troublesome is his interest in her past and her history, and the way he keeps poking his nose into the secrets behind the distant relative's bequest that gave him ownership of the property where she lives.

    "Audio is much better than reading the book"

    Like Molly Harper's "And One Last Thing...," I enjoyed this book much better as an audio book. The Duke always stood out in the first three audios in this series as a libertine and drunkard who only stayed sober and conducted business on Tuesdays. He was the comedic relief, and I was looking forward to his story in this fourth audio.

    The narrator perfectly captures the nuances of the Duke of Castleford's very droll humor - I just didn't get that from reading the book last year. The comedic interplay with the characters from the preceding books also came more clearly into focus. If you enjoyed the previous audios in this series, I think you'll enjoy this one.

    Story
    "the last was the best!"

    Could not stop listening to this book! Try to save them for my commute, but listened constantly at home too. This story was the best of the series, even though Castleford was the worst rake, the increasing information about him in the previous three led up to him being the best of the four lead men. Have to admit I was a little disappointed with the change in narrator for this last one, but got used to it and liked her just as well after a while. I will be looking for more by this author.

    Story
    "Grrrr... This could have been so much more"
    Would you try another book from Madeline Hunter and/or Kate Reading?

    Madeline Hunter possible but Kate Reading, not a romance or other fictional books


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Interesting use of English history, dreadful narration


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Reading’s performances?

    Nope. When i started listening i thought this might be an OK book but soon found that anger and happiness had similar inflections, that being none. The female character was to be one of strength and self assurance what i heard was a meek mouse.
    Sadly there was a problem with telling the characters apart conversation seemed to just run through the words without indicating who was speaking, deepening the voice for a man, lighter for a woman.


    Was Dangerous in Diamonds worth the listening time?

    No, buy the book you'll be able to 'hear' the characters better.
