Sabrina Jeffries matches an unlikely hero with a hesitant heroine in The Danger of Desire, the third book in the Sinful Suitors series, and the result is pure magic.
Miss Delia Trevor politely wiles away her days pretending to be in pursuit of a husband and her nights searching for the man responsible for her brother’s death. When Warren Corry, the Marquess of Knightford, discovers her clandestine visits to some of London’s most unseemly gambling establishments, Delia is forced to tell the infuriatingly handsome lord at least part of her plan, withholding just enough information to ensure the blasted man won’t interfere—or so she thinks. With seductive charm and helpful connections, Warren is soon aiding Delia in her scheme—and threatening her heart, to boot. But she doesn’t have the time to fall in love, especially with the marquess, who would hardly woo a woman like Delia. Or would he?
For his part, Warren can’t quite understand how he’s managed to become besotted with a woman so unlike any other female he’s ever met. Though his reputation paints him as a rake of the first order, the marquess would never abandon a woman in need. Besides, he couldn’t leave now, even if he wanted to. The smart, honest and damningly desirable Delia makes Warren wonder if it’s possible to love, even for someone such as himself, who has done everything in his power to protect his heart.
Risky midnight visits to gambling hells, scandalous behavior in carriages and a shocking twist you’ll never see coming are just a few of my favorite things about this passionate, Regency-set historical romance.
