Domenico, the Duke, is a remarkably complicated man. How many heroes have there been who would have a man horribly tortured because he was afraid the man had stolen his mistress's affections, have a man's legs broken because the other man was taller than him or who is clearly bisexual? Raised from birth in an atmosphere of distrust, obsequiousness and betrayal, he comes to us a man who has had most of the worst facets of his character rewarded throughout his life. There is a decidedly cruel streak in Domenico, and yet he's amazingly attractive - to both the men and women in the story, and to the readers. One might say he exudes sex appeal.
Be warned, this is a dark story - with a happy ending, of course. It's a cult classic that deserves more readership. It breaks my heart that we'll never see another story from Denys, but I thank her for writing a book I've enjoyed reading over and over through the years.
Mrs Teresa Denys has achived one of the most likeable "unlikable" heros in the romance history.The book, narrates the story of Domineco aka "The Silver Devil" and Felicia. The writting style is in first-person through Felicia.
Domenico is the Duke of Cabria, an imaginery dukedom, set in Italy, that has been seperated from the Vatican. The hero....Ahhh!I could talk about him for hours. He is so refreshing, than any other that i have red before.
Domenico, sees Felicia, through a window. He pays her brother to buy her and make her his mistress. He is arrogant, self - absorbed,narkissus,baleful,jealous to a point that kills a courtier which he has apointed for his mistress, just because he thinks that she grows fond of him and also bisexual.And his pride,OMG, his pride is something that i have never met in any other hero.
He is soooo self absorbed, that he signs a letter to his mistress, not with his name but with the word "Cabria". Can you believe this guy? And much, much more...
You are reading this review and you might think why i praise the hero. Because with her writting, Mrs Teresa Denys has done the unexpected. He is in my top three favorite heroes of all time.
Enough with the alpha males that turn to butter when the heroine or anyone that are fond of, is near them. Half of the groveling scenes in those books are so cheesy and expected that i can't even stand them.
Domenico is an italian ruler in middle-age Italy. I think that this is how Maciaveli, imagined "The Prince". Also, the book has one of the strongest groveling scenes that you can meet in a romance.Read more ›
