Too Dangerous to Desire (Lords of Midnight #3) by Cara Elliott

Too Dangerous to Desire (Lords of Midnight, #3)
Can a Flame from the Past be Rekindled? Long ago, Sophie Lawrance chose prudence over passion, rejecting a rebellious young rogue for the sake of her family-no matter the ache it left in her heart. But after a specter from her father's past resurfaces, threatening to destroy all she holds dear, the desperate beauty knows there is only one man whose shadowy skills can save her. Or Is It Too Dangerous to Play with Fire? Cameron Daggett is a man of many secrets . . . and many sins. He's never forgotten the pain of losing Sophie. But now, with a chance to win her back, Cameron sets aside his anger and agrees to help Sophie save her father's honor. Together they embark on a perilous masquerade, leading them to a remote country estate near the sea. There, they must battle a cunning adversary-and their own burning desires. Will they be consumed by the flames? Or can they prove that true love conquers all?

Too Dangerous to Desire was a lovely book. It had sweet and sexy romance, secrets, surprises, and an adorable ending. Everything you need to have a brilliant book.

I've always been fond of the idea of two past lovers finding each other again, so I was excited about reading a book that featured it. And, I'm happy to say that this book didn't disappoint at all.

Sophie is practical. That's what she's always considered herself, and that is how she's always acted, even when it meant betraying her heart. I really liked her. She was sensible, but knew when to follow her heart. I  admired that she gave up what she wanted in order to take care of her family. It takes a selfless person to do that. And, throughout the story, she proved herself to be brave in the face of all the adversity. Sophie was an admirable character, one that anyone can like.

Cameron is hot and dangerous,as the title suggests. I dare anyone to read this book and not lust after Cameron. His past is shadowed at best. He's done some, let's say morally questionable things. But he's definitely not a bad man. He's still in love with Sophie, despite the rejection, and he's determined to protect her when a blackmailer threatens her and her family. He's very sweet and caring to her. The romance between them is a perfect mix and sweet and spicy. They are truly in love and that translates into a very hot scene in the bedroom :) The two of them were the perfect couple.

The story never gets dull and throws in a few surprises that kept me engaged right through to the end. The end was sweet and made me smile. Don't you love it when love conquers all?

Too Dangerous to Desire was a lovely book, one I would recommend to any historical romance lover.
