This is the first book of Madeline Hunter's that I have read. I was slightly disappointed with “Dangerous in Diamonds”. This book starts out slow right from the beginning, but does start to pick up near the middle of the book. There are some bright spots in this book, but also some spots that where the book drags on without pushing the story line ahead. The ending of this book will shock the socks off you. I did not see it coming at all. Over all this book was not a bad read, it had its moments.
