SUMMARY
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?

Dear Authors of Historical Romance:
Ditch the bodice ripper covers, it's time.
Sincerely,
Everyone

Warren Corry, the Marquess of Knightford, prefers his women to be of the widowed variety. When his cousin begs him to help her friend Miss Delia Trevor and become her protector, to help her find a suitable husband, Warren scoffs, but relents. Just like Delia scoffs at Warren's high handed ways and flirty behavior. Delia's determined to find the man whose actions killed her brother. Dressing up like a man to enter gaming hells, encouraging toga parties and leading on rakish suitors to find the one man with the sun tattoo are all small prices to pay to put her plan for revenge in play. Neither of them anticipate the force of blind lust that occurs in each other's presence, nor the consequences for unmarried "friends" who like to kiss…and stuff.

I'm not a huge connoisseur of historical romance, but every time I pick up a Sinful Suitors book by Sabrina Jeffries…I want to be. THE DANGER OF DESIRE is the 3rd offering, and I absolutely loved it, taking a page from Warren's book and staying up deep into the night furiously flipping pages. Ms. Jeffries kept me engaged and enthralled as the spunky Delia kicked ass and took names in her search for the lord who ruined her family. Warren was fabulous too, so ornery and sweet and protective and delicious. The chemistry between them just jumped off the pages, and I felt like a friend cheering them on. There were only a few sex scenes, though the playful encounters were just as erotic as the full blown shebang, reminding me exactly why this genre is such a popular one with every generation. Just a really terrific book with great characters, a tight, fun storyline and yummy sex scenes.

Bottom Line: OW/OM (ish…Warren tried to hook up with prostitutes in the beginning and after meeting Delia, but ultimately did/could not); no sharing; no condom use; no BDSM; no kink; no sexual assault; no murder/violence.
