Dangerous Lover (Dangerous series)

Dangerous Series

Rosalind is the middle daughter of the Earl of Swanlea, elder sister to Juliet, and younger sister to Helena. Clearly, their father is a huge fan of Shakespeare and passed that passion onto Rosalind herself. Much of the banter between Griff and Rosalind involves quoting Mr. It is a lovely book. I just have as many quibbles with it as I have enjoyable aspects. I really cannot forgive the dubious nature of the sex scenes. Also, please never use the word honeypot for a vagina. I just have never wished for a better hero quite so hard as I did with this one.

If you want the H and h quoting Shakespeare to one another, 'A Dangerous Love' has that in abundance.

The hero, Griff is a bit of an ass, quick to anger and can lie easily ergo his disguise-but even when that is found out he keeps some of his cards to his chest which for the story is great but for being a good human being, not so great BUT he does a nice bit of 'grovelling' or rather 'convincing' in the end which was actually really cute and pretty selfless of him.

Besides from being an ass, he can actually be really likable-At least I wanted to flirt with him and talk about all the naughty things in Shakespeare. He's infatuated right from the get go-their meet cute is actually pretty awesome. She comes at him with a sword! Anyway, I'd definitely recommend this for the witty banter between the H and h Shakespeare, and finding all the possible words for the H's penis in Shakespeare's works , unforgettable scenes and an all round good story.

I always liked the identity-swapping conflict and anticipating how it'll be resolved. This story was quite unpredictable so that's another plus. While the setting was mostly in Swanlea Park, the characters' wit and banter were exciting enough. I immediately liked Rosalind! I have a thing for independent, sassy, and sharp-tongued heroines.

Aside from her striking good looks and her passion to be an actress, she also has a fancy for loud colors. Sabrina Jeffries certainly does know her Shakespeare since Rosalind and Griff were using quotes for their arguments. It's amusing how they first met. There's a lot of resistance, a lot of cunning, planning, and plotting and revenge.

Lust overcame the characters because of their fierce attraction for each other. It was rampant and addictive for the both of them. Griff liked Rosalind's mind and enjoyed being in her company, and I commend her suspicious nature. Both of them are on equal footing when it comes to their intelligence. While revenge is on Griff's mind, Rosalind only cares about her family. I didn't like the fake earl; even though he's suffering for it out of guilt and remorse, he wasn't really able to redeem himself.

There were a lot of funny moments and I appreciated it. Not all historical romance novels have it and I always love a good laugh. It's amazing how Ms Jeffries construct her characters, Helena, the eldest is beautiful but because of her limp, she's unattractive to the eyes of most people, except for Daniel of course.

Those two have strong undercurrents. The love scenes were passionate and because Griff and Rosalind are falling in too deep, they exchanged harsh words and Griff did everything to make her his. I admired Rosalind's decision to move away and pursue her dream, because it made Griff realize how much he needed her, and her love. So, another case of "don't know what you have 'til it's gone". I'm looking forward to reading the next! Why only 3 stars? I loved the witty banter, plot line, the typical SJ formula which I love, the secondary characters can't wait for Helena and Daniel's story!!

What didn't I love? The two main characters. Although I liked Griff a bit more, I didn't feel a connection to either one of them. In fact at times I grew tired of Rosalind, and highly annoyed. I don't think she did anything wrong, but obviously there was just something I can put my finger on to cause me not to really like them. I think Why only 3 stars?

See a Problem?

I think with Rosalind I don't like how aimless her life seemed to be. She wanted to be away from running the estate, to be an actress, but that really didn't last, and then she didn't want to run the estate either. For someone who proclaimed love was important and the hero kept mentioning that his Rosalind never did anything by half-measures, it sorta felt like she did. I just wanted her to make up her mind about anything already. Griff was okay, but I didn't feel the love.

And while I get the several Shakespeare quotes, I found it odd for two people to talk in quotes so often. Onward to Daniel the highwayman's son and Lady Helena! This promises to be interesting!

Dangerous Lover - Lisa Marie Rice - E-book

Griff's determination to rid himself of Rosalind and her determination to stick to him results in numerous humourous situations and exchanges between the two. I really enjoyed reading this book. The story grabbed my attention early and held it until the last page. Jeffries has such a smooth writing style that the story just flows effortlessly.

As entertaining as the two main characters were, the secondary characters, especially Helena and Daniel, received enough attention to pique my interest - I'll be reading their story next. Hopefully Juliet will also appear in the next book. Although these books can be read as standalones, reading them in order gives the characters more depth. After I finish the second book in this series, I may just have to reread Juliet's story.

I rated it three stars - an average read. However, given how much I like this author, rereading one of her books won't be too much of a hardship.

Sometimes, even for the writing! But I'll tell you what I don't like - sudden insertions of extra POVs for no reason other than to give us new information. That is truly distracting in a genre that usually only has two POVs. I dislike this very much! Jul 28, Luvmyfamily rated it liked it. This one gets a 3. The woman was too stubborn and suspicious and the man was selfish and inconsiderate.

It ended well but I wasn't thrilled with them for the most part of the story. I finally finished this book after so long but it was a pretty good read albeit a very slow start.

Looking forward to reading their story. Bintang 4 untuk buku 1 Swanlea Spinsters. Merencanakan untuk melebarkan sayap perusahaannya ddn menjadi salah satu delegasi utusan ke Cina. Tapi semua itu butuh landasan yg kuat sebagai seorang Lord di House of Lord. Dengan kata lain Griffharus memiliki gelarnya yg selama ini seharusnya menjadi gelarnya.

Earl of Swanlea, pria tua yg sakit sakitan mengundang Griff untuk berkunjung ke Swan park dan menawarkan pernikahan Bintang 4 untuk buku 1 Swanlea Spinsters. Earl of Swanlea, pria tua yg sakit sakitan mengundang Griff untuk berkunjung ke Swan park dan menawarkan pernikahan dengan salahsatu dari 3 putrinya dgn imbalan bukti keabsahan diri Griff surat nikah ortu Griff sehingga Griff tidak lagi dikecam sebagai anak haram dan Griff berhak atas gelar Earl of Swanlea berikut propertinya Earl yang sekarang merebut gelar dengan cara licik.

Griff yang tidakmau menikah melihat undangan itu sebagai kesempatan untuk mencari dokumen yg selamaninidicarinya. Maka Griffpun berencana dibantu Daniel Brennan tangan kanannya di perusahaan utk mengelabui sang earl dan ke 3 putrinya dgn cara bertukar identitas Griff menjadi Daniel tangsn kanannyadan Daniel menjadi Griff sang boss , sehingga Daniel dapat mengalihkan perhatian keluarga earl dan Griff sendiri dengan bebas berkeliaran dlm properti utk mencari dokumen. Tapi rencana, tinggallah rencana.

Pertemuan Griff dgn Rosalind, putri ke2 earl menghancurkan pandangan Rosalind thd Griff. Griff ketahuan sedang menggeledah ruang kerja ayah Rosalind saat itu kebetulan Rosalind hendak mengambil kotak penyimpanan yg ditugaskan oleh ayahnya utk disimpan oleh Rosalind. Rosalind ini sebenarnya tidaksetuju dgn niat ayahnya untuk menikahkan dirinya maupun salah satu dari saudaranya dengan Knighton. Sejak pertemuan pertama mereka itulah Rosalind tidakpernah meninggalkan Griff yg diketahuinya sbg Mr. Brennan tangan kanan sepupunya Knighton sendirian karena curiga akan tujuandan apa yang sedang dicari Griff.

Griff pun jadi kesal dan sebal dengan Rosalind karena menghambat pencariannya. Walaupun kesal dan sebal, sebenarnya Griff ini sdh tertarik dgn Rosalind. Bagaimana tidak, wong pada pertemuan pertama mereka Rosalind hanya pakai gaun tidur yg tipis. Karena satu kejadian akhirnya Griff tau cara menjauhkan Rosalind dari dirinya. Griff mulai merayu Rosalind sehingga Rosalind pun takut berduaan dgn Griff.

Betapa terkejutnya kedua orang ini mereka masing masing tidak menyukai satu sama lain ketika Griff menjalankan aksinya menakut nakuti Rosalind dengan cara mencium Rosalind. Dan ternyata keduanya merasakan ketertarikan yang sama. Sampai pada saat Rosalind sadar akan tingkah lakunya yang menjadi liar dan bebas bila berdua saja dgn Griff yang dikira Rosalind tidak menginginkan dirinya, serta keinginan Rosalind untuk menolong Juliet agar terlepas dari pernikahan yang tak diinginkan adiknya saat itu Juliet setuju untuk dinikahkan dgn Knighton , akhirnya Rosalind menawarkandirinya untuk dinikahi oleh Brennan yg saat itu identitasnya sbg Knighton.

Melihat kondisi tersebut marahlah Griff kpd Brennan dan Rosalind. Belum lagi niat Brennan dan Rosalind yang ingin memperlihatkan kemesraan mereka berdua pada Griff agar Griff Cemburu. Dalam kemarahan karena cemburu, Griffpun berkelahi dgn Brennan. Disini karakterBennan manis sekali karena dia lebih membela Rosalind dan saudara saudaranya dibandingkan Griff yg merupakan bosnya. Daniel juga menasehati membuka mata Griff akan perasaannya terhadap Rosalind.

Lots of home repair, good food, and hot sex, balanced by a sociopathic killer with his eyes on the money. Happy for Jack and Caroline, but the ending was too abrupt. Apparently, fans griped, so Rice wrote a short story in lieu of an epilogue. Here is my review of Hot Secrets. I enjoyed the series, especially this book and Dangerous Passion.

Not really a series. No characters or plot lines overlap. Dangerous Passion also has a short story to accompany it, like an epilogue. Jul 29, Christa rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a very enjoyable romantic suspense novel. I thought that both the hero and heroine were great characters. I enjoyed the way that the hero, Jack Prescott, was so protective of Caroline, the heroine.

Twelve years ago, Jack Prescott was an eighteen year old homeless boy known as Ben. He was fascinated by Caroline Lake, a wealthy girl who treated him kindly when she delivered items to the homeless shelter where he is staying. After his father dies, Ben leaves town and is rescued from his ha This was a very enjoyable romantic suspense novel.

After his father dies, Ben leaves town and is rescued from his harsh life by Colonel Eugene Prescott. Ben becomes Jack Prescott, joins the army, and becomes a Ranger. Later, he joins the father of his heart in his successful security business. When Colonel Prescott dies, Jack sells the lucrative company and his home, and then returns to Caroline's hometown of Summerville, Washington. Jack has never forgotten Caroline, and he hopes to find her.

Arriving in Summerville, Jack learns that Caroline is suffering financial difficulties and takes boarders in her once magnificent home. Jack goes to Caroline's bookstore on Christmas Eve and arranges to rent a room from her. Caroline's life has been one of tragedy and loneliness. Her parents were killed in a car accident that gravely injured her brother. After suffering six years of agony, her brother has just died. Caroline is intensely drawn to Jack, and he gains her trust when he gets her safely home after a harrowing incident during a snow storm.

After spending the evening together, Caroline tells Jack that she doesn't want to spend the night alone. The two begin a very intense, passionate relationship. When a man from Jack's past threatens Caroline's safety, Jack must protect this woman he loves while trying to regain her wavering trust. This book was fast-paced and quick to read. I enjoyed the relationship between the hero and heroine, and I really liked both of their characters. I thought it was touching that Jack remembered and thought about Caroline while he was away, but I did find it a bit creepy that a young, homeless Jack used to go in and wonder through Caroline's house when no one was at home.

The only other disatisfaction I felt with the book was due to the extremely rushed ending.

Very interesting stories everyone will love.

This one Jack is a retired army ranger that just wants to start over in his life. This one had a rough start to me. There are some villains in the story that make it interesting. However the flow from Jack and Caroline to what the villain is thinking is abrupt and irritating, and happens through out the story. I was interested in it enough to want to keep reading to see how it turns out, but guess what?

The scene ends, everyone is safe.

The story is not bad but the heroine is a little TSTL for my tastes and he's a sort of super alpha hero. But the characters were really light, I'd liked more depth. But not so good.

When he first head over heels for her, he was a scared eighteen years old with nothing to look forward to, except for Caroline.

But he goes on to become a hard and emotionless individual and after 12 years he has given up his old life to be with Caroline. Caroline had a privileged life but after the deaths of her parents and her brother who lived through the car accident but was paralyzed. With her little brother now dead, she has no money and no one else to turn to, until this strange and tired looking man comes to her on Christmas Eve.

She gives him a room in her home and soon they become so much more than just tenants. They embark on an incredible love affair and Jack helps Caroline heal and she shows him what love is. But an enemy of Jack is on his way to destroy him and everything he holds dear- Caroline. It has been such a long time I have read a character of Jack. His love for Caroline is all consuming, erotic, sensual, etc He is one man who would die for this woman and if she rejected him I seriously would believe he would crawl up into a ball and die.

The story happens over a few days but the reader gets sucked into the story and these two people who are so damaged emotionally. And if you like a scorching read heavy with bedroom love, Rice is a masterpiece of this, including the stark emotions this unfeeling man has for this woman. I was truly blown away and I applaud Rice for writing this wonderful heartwrenching story. Again, if you have a thing for damaged heroes and the woman who can help him heal, you must read run out and pick up this book.

Another yes-and-no book for me. Yes, for the male lead and his cute stalker-ish ways and love for the heroine, the villain, the plot, and the nice creepy feeling of a small town in the middle of the blizzard I love such minimalistic, "silent", compact settings. No, for the bland heroine - I got the feeling she didn't have much of a personality, her woeful little back story that got old too fast, and the rather abrupt though I was prepared for it ending. I feel this book could've used a chapte Another yes-and-no book for me.

I feel this book could've used a chapter more, to expand on the final action sequence in the blizzard, and the final resolution between the leads, because what we got just didn't cut it. But, thanks to the good though sometimes templateish writing, great characterization for the two leading men, and the minimalistic setting, this was still a great little suspense novel. Lucky for me the next one is longer And the third stars the intriguing Victor "Drake" Drakovich that immediately caught my eye in his short, yet memorable appearance. Looking forward to it.

With a woman struggling to keep her life together, and a man with a dangerous past who just wants to live a normal life now. But I do know there is a good backstory that helps w I absolutely have no memory of how I came across this book.

As much as I complain on YA review blog about insta-love in young adult books, I feel adult romance books are even worse for this. This book has the relationship progress rather quickly but it has a solid reason for it which also ties into the plot and the character development and I thought was rather well done. I really liked the dynamic between the two characters. Also, there was all this angst! I love when the book makes me cry ugly tears, you know?

Not that you should ever hold my crying as some sort of a standard. I have been known to cry while watching commercials. But, yeah, their loneliness and need for a family really hit me. I could feel the starkness in both of their lives. I needed them to find each other to make myself feel better. I did think they jumped into bed together a little quickly. But once they were they I stopped caring. The sex was hot and desperate and just what I thought it would be with these two characters and their intense relationship.

The ending…was way too abrupt. I just wanted a glimpse of their happy life together. Reviewed at Big Girl Books on April 20th, I am not sure Jack did not tip over into slightly scary stalker behaviour here. Caroline Lake, the woman Jack had loved since he was 18, and had not seen in 12 years, so basically, his entire adult life. Her life has changed over 12 years, she had lost her family and the life she had with her family, and is It was ok. Her life has changed over 12 years, she had lost her family and the life she had with her family, and is barely struggling by.

Luckily, Jack is ready to swoop in and save the day. Tbh, I just struggled with the idea that what Jack felt was a healthy adult love. He spent very little time with her as a teen, and seems he used to walk to her house and wander around it when know one was there.

Now, do not get me wrong, I am all for a possessive caveman alpha, but there were certain points I thought it was going to turn into an episode of Criminal Minds when he tried to make a dress out of her skin or something. However, I liked the differing POV , even from the villain of the piece, it built the tension up nicely.

I have read there is a novella about Jack and Caroline, which is pretty much what should have been the epilogue to this book. The thing is, I do actually like Lisa Marie Rice books, I just have to space them out, as it is all a bit formulaic and some phrases and sentences are repeated in each book. I was not totally satisfied with the conclusion of the story. I guess it was a happy ending of sorts, and anyway I have a great imagination and I just used that to conclude the fate of the characters.

What captured me instantly with the story was its plot. I absolutely liked the idea that the major characters, Jack Prescott and Caroline Lake, knew each other twelve years ago, way back when they were both still in their teens and circumstances of their lives were reversely different than now. They were seriously scorching! I was actually envious of Caroline while I was reading this book. Sep 26, Samantha Sullivan rated it really liked it. He finds out his name is Cory and finds Selene weird, he just wants to get laid and not commit to her for her life, the way she is talking.

To be honest the book didn't work for me mainly because it was weird I guess and I didn't enjoy the romance at all, even the dialogues between them felt weird, oh I am injured but let's have sex, no let us wait, but it is okay the next day when his brother is in hospital and Selene's friend dead? Also, she doesn't know him at all but believes they are soul-mates, maybe I am not that open to reading different books, but things just happened way to fast for me, from not wanting to commit, Cory is suddenly all, I love you.

I particularly liked the heroine's confidence. It was also nice to see the Brand family working together to help. Overall a good book even with the few inconsistencies and some ruminating. Selene is communing with her sister witches when a man who's been stabbed collapsed at her feet. May 23, Jenn rated it liked it Shelves: Don't get me wrong, it's a nice fast paced novel with lots of excitement.

However I found the main character a little hard to relate to. There's being Wiccan or an interest in the occults and then there's just plain flaky and I'd have to say Selene Brand falls into the second category. She decides a man she doesn't even know is her soul mate based on signs she receives after a pagan ritual, falls madly in love with him for no other apparent reason other than those signs and takes wacky to a whole new level.

In one scene this character decides to literally listen to the earth, as in lie down on the ground and put her ear to it, and of course while she's listening to dirt "talk" the bad guy catches her and takes her hostage. The character does have some redeeming qualities like a strong sense of conviction to her beliefs and an extreme sense of loyalty, but I was disappointed in the book because you usually find so much better with a Maggie Shayne novel. It's an entertaining read, but I think could have been greatly improved with a little more character development and plot depth.

Definitely not one of Maggie Shayne's best. Maggie Shayne has done it again. What a page turner. I'm ready for the next. Arlene, the youngest Loved the characters.
