Overview

Behind the mask lies love-a dangerous and deadly emotion.
Constance Athelson, Viscountess Westbury has a gift she can't reveal. She sees things others can't, including the dead. The only thing she can't see is into the heart of Lucien Blakemore, Earl of Lyndham. After one blissful night in his arms, she knows if she's ever to win his heart, she must free him from his tortured past.
Lucien Blakemore met the Egyptian goddess Isis at a masked ball, but she vanished into the night before he could learn her real name. It's just as well, since the Blakemore Curse makes love a dangerous and deadly emotion for him. But the erotic night he spent with his mysterious lover makes him want to throw caution aside-if only for one more night with his masked goddess.
Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex with a hero whose torment equals that of Jane Eyre's Mr. Rochester.

    Sexy and suspenseful...

    Constance Athelston is a widow with a young son. She also has a gift that she dare not reveal - she can see the dead. After a night of shared passion, she is determined to win the heart of Lucien Blakemore, the Earl of Lyndham. Lucien, however, believes he is cursed - which means that falling in love is too dangerous. But he can't get Constance out of his mind, or his heart. Will these two be able to set aside the obstacles and take hold of true love? Constance struggles because of her gift. She sees visions and can talk to the dead and most people shun her if they find out. Lucien doesn't believe in anything supernatural, which makes a relationship between the two of them difficult to say the least. I thought Constance's ability to love Lucien in the face of almost overwhelming odds was amazing. She is strong and independent, but also has a heart for others.
    Lucien is the kind of hero that gets your blood racing. He's a bad boy on the outside, but inside wanting to love and be loved. From the moment he first appeared, to the last scene, I was hooked!
    Ms. Burns has an amazing talent. She is able to write an edge-of-your-seat suspense tale that is also an erotic, emotional love story. The love scenes were sensual and passionate with a little bit of naughty mixed in. I loved the secondary characters. Constance's son Jamie, the earl's grandmother, his niece Imogene. And the villain was scary, so evil, yet able to mask his true nature. Dangerous is a passionate tale of love and intrigue, with supernatural elements. You won't want to miss this one!

    Monica Burns writes lush historical romance. Her stories perfect

    Monica Burns writes lush historical romance. Her stories perfectly capture the emotions of all-consuming lust and passionate love combined with a page-turning story that engrosses until the very end. She’s an underrated and underappreciated author who writes beautiful historical romantic stories.
    This story has elements of both history and the supernatural. Like Katharine Ashe’s Captive Bride and These Haunted Hearts by Anna Campbell, they are stories of both mystery and romance.
    Though loosely connected to Obsession in that Constance is the sister of Sebastian, the hero in that story, it can be read as a standalone.
    Constance is an independent single mother, a widow who assisted her late husband in his expeditions to Egypt. She is an accomplished librarian and cataloger of antiquities, trained by scholars at the British Museum, and is hired by Lucien, the Earl of Lyndham, via correspondence based on her expert qualifications. Her work is impeccable and she’s very knowledgeable and meticulous in her execution.
    Before journeying to Lyndham’s estate with her young son, Jamie, she attends an illicit Black Widows Ball in London where she has a one-night stand with a masked stranger, completely out of character for herself. She is shocked at her attraction to him as well as her unconventional behavior but, after a vision into his past, she soon flees town after accepting the earl’s job offer. Little does she suspect he’s the stranger himself. 
    After their encounter, Lucien desperately tries to find his mysterious masked lady but to no avail. When he arrives at his estate, he is shocked to find her there and even more shocked when he discovers she is his cataloger. He’s an honorable, passionate, and sensitive man but he’s also very smart. “He was a man of action, a scholar, and her gift was as far removed from science and the academic world as it could be.” 
    What follows is a gripping mystery combined with a sensuous and erotic love story. I really enjoyed the bits of Egyptian history—Lucien’s horse is named Anubis—and antiquities interwoven with the tragic history and curse of the Blakemore family. 
    In short, Lucien must learn to accept both Constance’s gift as well as her love for her him.
    Secondary characters here are well portrayed: Lucien’s late brother, Nigel, presents some nice humorous moments as well as poignancy; Aurora, Lucien’s formidable and lovely grandmother; Duncan, Lucien’s old friend; and the charming children, Jamie, her son, and Imogene, Lucien’s beloved niece.
    Memorable moments:
    “'Isn't there some other way you could announce your presence? Like rattling chains or moaning?' she snapped.”
    “It was time she stopped feeling ashamed of her gift. And that’s what it was—it was a gift. She had the ability to help others.” 
    Monica Burns is one of my favorite historical romance authors who writes  stories set in the Victorian era. Her next book, His Mistress, is due out this year.
