This is the last in the Rarest Blooms series with Castleford and Daphne.
Tristan, the Duke of Castleford, has inherited the house Daphne Joyes is living in from the Duke of Becksbridge. This surprised him, as he never liked Becksbridge, nor his son, Latham. He's instantly drawn to her beauty, but Daphne knows about his wild reputation. He toys with her, neither letting her know if he'll let her continue living there or not. Despite her cool mask she has long used, she finds herself beginning to let her guard down around him. Knowing this, he steps up his game, but then she tries to find other excuses not to be with him, including the fact he might have 'diseases,' from all the women he's been with. He tells her he's clean and even says a doctor will confirm it. He tries to get one to write a long letter, telling her how he's in the best health and he should know as he visits the same brothels (which the doctor doesn't).
Daphne and Castleford have their own reasons to hate Becksbridge and Latham. Over time, they have a relationship, and Castleford feels things he's never had before. He offers marriage, but doesn't propose and she turns him down. Daphne wants revenge for what has happened to her and the other victims, and when the truth is revealed publically, Latham goes into hiding. But Daphne has another surprise at the end, which just seems to spoil the whole story. There were no hints in the story that there was another revelation, and it just seemed like it was added for a filler. I won't explain too much, but if you read it, you'll see why.
I skipped Albrighton and Celia's book, as this one was meant to be better. However, I'm staying away from Madeline Hunter at the moment and will come back to read it another time.
