“The Danger of Desire” by Sabrina Jeffries presents a delightful twist on the idea of a woman searching for a way to safeguard her family. I was impressed at Delia’s resourcefulness and determination while enjoying the repartee between her and Warren. The clues that are gradually revealed about each main character kept me curious about how their issues could be resolved, and the challenges each has faced made it clear how they’d had to cope with their demons and made them sympathetic characters. The end was a little contrived for my tastes although I surmise it was necessary to tie into subsequent tales. I love the way there are ties to past (and future) stories yet this book is complete in itself and I adore the glimpses of society this author deftly inserts into the tale. This was a great addition to the series and I look forward to seeing some of the secondary characters get their own happy ever afters.
This historical romance is part of ‘The Sinful Suitors’ series and centers around Miss Delia Trevor, who is searching for the man who destroyed her brother and thereby put the family’s future in jeopardy. Her unconventional methods come to the attention of Warren Corry, and intrigue him enough that he is diverted from his usual pursuits. They inadvertently are forced into each other’s lives but before they can have a true relationship, each must reveal secrets that may destroy what they could build together before they even start.
The third book in the sexy Sinful Suitors Regency romance series, this heart-pounding story shows why New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries is one of the most beloved historical romance writers today.
To root out the card cheat responsible for her brother’s death, Miss Delia Trevor spends her evenings dancing her way through high society balls, and her late nights disguised as a young man gambling her way through London’s gaming hells. Then one night, handsome Warren Corry, the Marquess of Knightford, a notorious member of St. George’s Club, recognizes her. When he threatens to reveal her secret, she’s determined to keep him from ruining her plans, even if it means playing a cat-and-mouse game with the enigmatic rakehell.
Warren knows the danger of her game, and he refuses to watch her lose everything while gaining justice for her late brother. But when she starts to delve beneath his carefully crafted façade, can he keep her at arm’s length while still protecting her? Or will their hot desires explode into a love that transcends the secrets of their pasts?
