Duke with Benefits by Manda Collins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
WE FINALLY HAVE A STORY FOR DAPHNE!!!
I have been waiting for this book from the very second we met Daphne in the first “Studies in Scandal” bok. Once again, Celeste has left behind a mystery for the bluestockings (Honestly, I don’t think I like Celeste that much. Why does she keep putting these girls in danger? She’s dead and gone so she’s safe from harm but what about the poor girls?).
Daphne is the only one who can decode the mysterious Cameron Cipher which apparently leads to a fortune. And of course this means her spending lots of time with the dreamy- I mean, with the Duke of Maitland. Their search for the Cipher turns bloody which puts Daphne at risk. Especially when it seems like someone close to her might want her dead.
I love the whole element of danger leading to people falling in love. Personally I think it’s a plot device that is used far too often but I love it nonetheless.
This was a great read and I found it impossible to put down. Maybe it was because of the plot that kept me glued until the end of the book or maybe it was because I was really eager to see what happened between Daphne and Maitland. This was just an absolutely amazing read and I can’t wait for the rest of the series to release.
