    One thought on “The Daredevil Snared”

    1. I don't know if it's because of "middle book" syndrome or what, but this was the worst book in this quartet so far. If there were half star ratings, it'd get 1.5. I finished it in 5 hours because I skimmed and flipped through most of it going "don't care, don't care". There's a difference between adding details for world building and bludgeoning your readers with them. And the character I was the most interested in was the plot moppet ("a small child who has no purpose or development except to d [...]

    2. This is the third book in the series and my favorite so far. At the end of the previous book, A Buccaneer at Heart, Caleb has stolen Robert's journal and departed for Freetown, to take up the next leg of the investigation. He is the youngest of the brothers and considered to be rather reckless. He wants the respect and trust of his brothers, and has been unable to convince them that he can be responsible.As this book opens, Caleb and his crew, and fellow captain and friend Philippe and his crew, [...]

    3. I am glad I started picking up historic romances- they actually have plot outside of romance. So far, most of the contemporary romances are just about the romance, which is ok if you like that. In this one, the fight to free the captives continues with the youngest brother who is headstrong and brazen, but looking to gain the respect and trust of his older brothers.I rather like Caleb, he is rather funny.Kate is strong, in a different way from the other two women for the older two brothers.She i [...]

    4. Geez, this was a loooong asssss story.I feel it kept talking about he same issues, concerns and problems over and over again. It was never ending regarding the mine, the risks etcBut, fuck I have to read the last one to sort all this shot out.

    5. Really closer to 3.5*, but 3* isn't enough. The tension in the slaving compound and the mining stratagems (delaying tactics) brought the tension level up and counterbalanced the author's writing style. And the cliffhanger was really expected, since the 4th and final mission is in the last book.

    6. This is book 3 in the Adventurers Quartet series -- the whole series is just WOW!!! I love Stephanie Laurens and she has absolutely outdone herself with this series. This book is just out and I can't wait for the next one. You really, really need to read this series in order because each book builds on the last. You could certainly read and enjoy this book as a stand-alone, but you would be missing such a rich background for the book!In this series, the four Frobisher brothers each undertake a s [...]

    7. this is what I would call the bridge book, in most series it's usually the 2nd book,but in this series it's the 3rd book,and it drove me a little crazy as there was no "conclusion" type of thing because the real conclusion would be in book 4

    8. Very good continuation in the mystery that is this series. Caleb, youngest of the 4 Frobisher brothers, stole his older brother's notebook and has sailed to Africa to discover what has happened to the missing people. Along with his friend, Captain Phillipe Lascelle, they find the slaver's camp and mine in the jungle. After sending his ship home with detailed maps, he has to wait for help before being able to free the prisoners.They meet a young boy, Diccon, who is allowed out of the camp to pick [...]

    9. big disappointment. the story was so highly detailed that you couldn't help but wonder if this was a retelling of something that actually happened. details and details and details. you are "set up" from the beginning of the book to expect a rescue. the book was very suspenseful and you just kept waiting for that rescue and the big fight. i expected that the next book in the series would track down all the bad guys who set this up in the first place. and speaking of which, it would easily be just [...]

    10. I think the rhythm of this quartet of books is perfect for an audio book. Although I have not listened to another narrator in years, I think Steve West does an amazing job!

    11. FINAL DECISION: My favorite of the series so far.  I loved the hero Caleb and I thought the story was active and interesting and I loved that Caleb and Kate spent so much time together falling in loveE STORY:  Caleb Frobisher, the youngest brother, has taken on the next part of the mission -- without permission. His brothers have worked to discover the secret of the missing English people in the West African town of Freetown. People are being abducted by slavers to work in a mine.  Caleb is t [...]

    12. Didn't like being left hanging. But there you are. Now have to wait for the final of the Adventurers Quartet to see everything come together!

    14. 4 stars.The devil-may-care youngest Frobisher brothers, Caleb was super-curious when first Declan and Robert rushed back into England from West Africa. But when Robert wouldn't let him know what it's all about, he went aboard Robert's ship and stole Robert's Captain's Log.

    15. “The Daredevil Snared” by Stephanie Laurens is Volume 3 in ‘The Adventurers Quartet’ series and centers on Caleb Frobisher as he follows the clues provided by his brothers and investigates the dangerous mystery that results in him meeting Katherine (Kate) Fortescue. Together, Caleb and Kate search for a way to thwart a sadistic captor, free all of those caught in the man's evil web, and pursue their mutual attraction. This historical romance story is an interesting combination of exotic [...]

    16. I think I have said this in my reviews of 'Stephanie Laurens' books. It bears repeating. She is the Queen of stretching out a 'love' scene. This time she stretched out this story by mining diamonds: diamond by diamond. I love the story, the characters, and the mystery. I also like that the story continues from book to book/brother to brother. However, I hope to never read about another diamond. I skipped a lot until I got to the end of this installment. Thanks goodness the last installment is co [...]

    17. The Daredevil Snared is a very slow pace book. Part of this comes from the fact that every detail is thoroughly written. EVERY FACT. The relationship between Caleb and Kate comes together rather quickly. They share their wants and needs for their future together almost right away, so therefore the rest of the book is full of the mine and how to stretch out the time that they have.If you've read book 1 and 2 then of course this book is needed for the next step as there still is one final book in [...]

    18. A cliffhanger?! I hate cliffhangers. I know why she did it and it makes absolute sense but I want to know what happens next and the next book seems so far away! Gah! It'll be interesting to see how Caleb and his men deal with the mine. I'm also intrigued by the oldest brother and his mysterious lady companion. So many questions to be answered so I need the next book now. Gimme

    19. I liked this addition to the Adventurers Quartet. However, I might really just give it 2.5 stars. It felt like the author was just dragging out the story. I thought it was way too slow in the 2nd half of the book. Even so, this is a fun story and I am anxiously awaiting the end of it.

    20. So long and drawn outI guess I'm not a great fan of the writing style, although I wanted to love this story.

    21. I couldn't get through this novel fast enough. It was tedious, which was a waste of a great character. Caleb Frobisher is by far the most charming of the four Frobisher brothers and his friend Reynard Lascelles was no slouch either. The quest to prove himself to his three older brothers was also an interesting character study, but unfortunately though littered with engaging moments the weight of the struggle to survive and escape being slave laborers in a diamond mine overseen by the sadistic Du [...]

    22. Well, shortly, it is not romance and not Laurens :-) the greater part is the description of the rescue trip, the prisoner's camp where people working on diamond extraction. Organization of the work of the camp, the cruelty of his supervisor, etc We can learn a lot about problems with diamond digging, organization of the principals, transport problems What do we know about the heroes? They met in difficult circumstances, they can only talk, touch their hands and sometimes kiss secretly. Of cour [...]

    23. O M G!!!!!!! This must be one of the most boring books I have ever read. It took me well over 8 weeks to get through this book. I was determined to finish it or die. I got through it only to be bitterly disappointed in the end. Thhe ending was a cliff hanger and the story continues into the next book. First off, I did not read the first book because when I downloaded the book, I was unaware it was part of a series and secondly I will probably never know the ending because I fear the next book wi [...]

    24. Not finishedIt's an interesting book, set in Africa rather than England, and with the diamond mining background. I can't say that it gave me a strong impression of Africa at all. But the most annoying thing was that it ended on a cliffhanger, so if I want to know what happened I'll have to buy the next book.

    25. I think Stephanie Laurens is not the right romance author for me. The plots never grab me--compared to other romantic suspense at least. Really wanted to like this pirate adventure but it was not to be.

    26. The book was slow and not much happened. This book is purely a set up for the next book. And nothing was actually resolved or really happened.

    27. 98.9% boring plot line and the rest dismal, as I can't stand the protagonists enough to enjoy their relationship. Not Laurens at her best.
