Too Dangerous

This is my first time reading Alexandra Benedict. I’m usually a little skeptical about reading new authors (unless someone highly recommends them), but I read the blurb and it sounded interesting, so it came home with me.

Here’s the blurb to Too Dangerous To Desire:
Lonely and overcome with grief after a painful loss in his past, Adam Westmore walks the ocean’s edge in solitude.
Forced to marry a depraved foreign prince, a desperate Evelyn Waye believes she has no choice but to throw herself from the jagged cliffs into the crashing surf below.

When Adam sees the enchanting woman in terrible danger, he rescues her from death and brings her back to his humble cottage. Hesitant to reveal his true identity as a distinguished lord, he nonetheless offers to protect her. And she needs protection, for the prince will find her—and harm her.

Evelyn wants to trust the handsome stranger who saved her life, but her cursed beauty has made her suspicious of all men . . . even one whose kindness disarms her, whose gentle touch inspires passion within her.

Soon Adam and Evelyn are consumed by desire . . . a dangerous desire that puts their very lives in peril.

Both the hero and the heroine have their problems to deal with, Adam with the tragic death of his wife and Evelyn with her upcoming wedding to a man she fears and despises, the man that killed her sister. Adam saves Evelyn from her suicide attempt and promises her to keep her safe from him. And if that means asking for help to do so, he will. Even if it’s his brother…

I enjoyed it. It was a page turner, and very emotional. And with my luck it was the last book of series. I didn’t realize that until I was half-way through, but I kept on reading it. I can’t wait to discover the author’s other books.
