Fans of Linda Howard will love Dangerous, the story of a driven female cop who teams up with an irresistible ex-con to bring a killer to justice—and discovers that breaking the rules is hotter on the wrong side of the law.

Chicago homicide detective Camille Martell will stop at nothing to track down “Angel,” a sexual predator who has already butchered two young victims—even after her off-the-books investigation leads to her suspension. But when her relentless attempts to contact Angel online puts her teenage neighbor in mortal danger, Camille’s worst fears are realized. Panicked and overwhelmed with guilt, Camille needs help—even if it comes from the one man she swore she’d do anything to forget.

After serving time for a trumped-up charge, private investigator Drago Nance doesn’t trust cops. Nothing will change that, not even the steamy weekend with Camille that burned itself into his memory. But with an innocent girl’s life at stake, Drago can’t ignore the need in Camille’s eyes, or the heated promise in her touch. He agrees to help—if she’s willing to play by his rules. He just never suspected that seducing his partner could be just as thrilling as chasing a madman.

My Review:

Intro: Pardon me if this review comes off a little wonky. I have a cold and have been Nyquiling it up. Not exactly the smartest thing ever but it was necessary. I am a giant baby when I am sick.
I have been wanting to read a good romantic suspense for a while. I have been on a steady diet of historical romance and Anne of Green Gables for the past month so this is a nice break.


Heroine: Camille-This is one of those rare instances where I had trouble with both the hero and the heroine. I liked Camille. I did. She was incredibly strong and capable. I did love the pragmatic way she looked at life. But I had a few moments in the book where I wanted to plonk her on the head for being too impulsive and taking unneccessary risks.

Hero: Drago-I had a bit more difficulty with Drago. First of all, his name. I kept imagining Draco Malfoy for some reason and it kind of took me out of the book. Also, it took me a while to make any sort of connection with him. I eventually did but it took me longer than usual. But I eventually came around. I love how he was a voice of reason for Camille. It’s usually the other way around.

Chemistry: This is what really got me into the book. They had such intense chemistry. I absolutely loved the flashbacks of their weekend together. I don’t think I would have had a complete understanding of their relationship without it. It added a heat where it would have otherwise been sort of tepid.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: I’ve never read a Patricia Rosemoor book before but I think I will have to. I enjoyed this one a great deal. I also think I will buy a copy for my mother. She loves romantic suspense of this sort and will adore this one.
