Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Wilde's second single title contemporary romance (after License to Thrill) finds former Olympic athlete Maddie Cooper and FBI agent David Marshall on the trail of Maddie's twin sister, Cassie, who was supposed to help David nab an art thief. After a less than auspicious first meeting-David confuses Maddie for Cassie and tackles her, and she tries to blind him with pepper spray-the two learn that Cassie has skipped town and may be in cahoots with the thief. Refusing to believe her twin could have switched sides, Maddie insists on tagging along as David travels to the Grand Caymans and then to Europe to track down the thief. There's nothing subtle or surprising about Wilde's plot and characterizations. From the very first sentence ("FBI special agent David Marshall loved a good fight and he played to win"), it's clear what kind of hero David is. Likewise, readers are told repeatedly that Maddie, the rational, dependable twin, has long felt responsible for the well-being of her flightier sister. Nevertheless, the story has its witty moments (upon being saved from a villain by a lesser villain, Cassie thinks to herself, "My antihero!"), and the chemistry between David and Maddie, though overblown at times, is hot enough to satisfy those looking for light summer reading. Agent, Karen Solem. (July) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

I bought the book on a whim and have never read a book by this Author before.. I must say it was a good read. I think any book that makes you laugh out loud is a good thing.. I was in the bowling all reading and just out of the blue started laughing at a part in the book and I got some weird looks.. My Husband thinks it is cute that I do that.. ha ha ha It was a good book though and there was a plot in there that I so did not see coming I am looking forward to reading more by this Author..

I got sucked into a whirlwind called CHARMED AND DANGEROUS, carried swiftly along by the force of the characters and the story line before being dropped, gently, into a nice feel good state at the end. Boy, oh boy. I didn't know if Ms. Wilde could repeat the quality of her LICENSE TO THRILL. But she did. CHARMED AND DANGEROUS is a charming whirlwind of a story, with vivid larger-than-life characters and non-stop action. Ms. Wilde not only has a knack for grabbing a reader's attention from the get-go and not letting go, she also has a special humorous touch. The banter between the romantic couple and the situations the pair find themselves are highly entertaining. Maddie Cooper and David Marshall are dynamite together. Calm, sedate Maddie becomes almost a wild woman in her quest to find her missing twin sister while playing havoc with oh-so-yummy FBI agent David. The love dance is in full swing in this story as the pair, both cautious about romantic feelings, play at keeping their distance from each other. And what an engaging dance it is! Intriguing characters, different locales and hilarious situations keep this story moving quickly. Maddie and David together make CHARMED AND DANGEROUS sizzle.

I got an advanced reading copy of this book. Boy, is it fun. Fast-paced and action-packed. A great love story with a wonderful suspense as well. FBI agent David is a hero to die for, all swagger and sin. And Maddie is just too cool as she repeatedly gives this alpha male a run for his money. If you want a pure summer beach read escape, grab a copy quick.

Take a deep breath before you plunge into Charmed and Dangerous because you are going to need it. This is a fast paced, thrill ride that will literally take you around the globe and back again. Ms. Wilde grabs and holds your attention from the first word to the last in this book that has humor, suspense and a sexier than sin hero.

Charmed and Dangerous by Lori Wilde is a fast paces sexy romp. Maddie Cooper has always put her life second to any problems from her more adventurous twin, Cassie. Cassie is missing and Maddie will move heaven and earth to find her sister. FBI agent David Marshall broke the rules by using civilian Cassie Copper to broker a sting. When Cassie sister comes looking for her, she stumbles head first into the scene. David didn¿t feel one iota of attraction to Cassie but he is sure feeling it for Maddie. As David and Maddie hunt all over Europe, they realize they have met their match in each other. This book is a joy from the first word to the last. Its refreshing to see a hero and heroine that can easily safe themselves as well as each other. I can¿t wait to read Cassie story¿

For all of her life, Maddie Cooper has kept a watchful eye over her twin sister Cassie, keeping her out of trouble as much as possible. So when Cassie ends up way over her head, Maddie jumps right in to bail her out and what a rescue it is going to be. She has to keep her libido under control and outwit the handsome FBI agent in order to reach her goal. But boy, oh boy is David Marshall one tempting man that will have Maddie thinking about what it would be like to throw her 'good-girl' ways right out the window. Cassie has been working with sexy FBI agent David Marshall to catch a high profile art thief. But to prove to her sister that she can be the hero, Cassie decides to go in deeper and not only help catch a thief, but recover the stolen art too. That is until her plans start going awry and Cassie finds herself neck deep in trouble. As much as he hates it, David Marshall is stuck with Maddie. She is beyond determined that her twin is innocent of any crimes and is going to rescue Cassie before David can throw her in jail. Keeping Maddie close will not only keep her out of trouble, but will help him get closer to her. An attraction like no other has taken over David and for the first time, a woman is more important than his quest to catch the thief. Now David just has to convince Maddie to take a chance on him, keep them alive and catch the bad guy, all in a days work. A fast paced, exciting story, CHARMED AND DANGEROUS is filled with love, laughter and a bit of danger around every corner. Ms. Wilde had me laughing out loud and sitting on the edge of my seat with this romance story. Seeing David's determination to catch the bad guy go up against Maddie's determination to save her sister makes this book one sensual roller coaster ride. If you looking for the perfect summer read look no further, Lori Wilde has already written it.

FBI agent David Marsahll has been chasing art thief and co-artist Peyton Shriver for ten years and in despair has enlisted Cassie Cooper to work undercover even though she's sort of dipsy. When she, Peyton and a valuable painting disappear, it looks as though David has been double-crossed until Cassie's Olympian twin sister Maddie rides to the rescue. Convinced her sister is in trouble, Maddie decides to dog David's trail until she finds the truth. But for twenty years Maddie has kept their paths running smoothly and doesn't intend to let David interfere. Wilde has a unique voice that will soar her to publishing heights. Her characters are visual and her stories are filled with humor and adventure.
