Historical Romance at its best.
Gabrielle Hampshire, a young woman abandoned to a convent after witnessing a brutal murder and suffering traumatic-shock amnesia, yearns to discover her identity. Upon notification of her father's death, she returns to his English country estate. Gabrielle crosses paths with the killers who, fearing she will identify them, try to kill her.

Jonathan Briercliff, sea captain and future Duke of Falkhurst, rescues her from the near fatal attempt on her life. After their personal lives merge in a love relationship, Jonathan guards a terrible secret which will drive Gabrielle away from him if revealed. Willing to do anything to keep her from learning the truth, he deceives her with a growing web of lies, not the least among them, his relationship with Trina Bascomb, who has a clandestine agenda meant to clear the way for Trina to marry Jonathan for his fortune.

When the truth surfaces, Gabrielle finds herself in an emotional battle with Trina’s vengeful nature, Jonathan’s guarded lies and the wanton storms that come crashing down around her.

One day you wake up in your tiny cell-like room with four cold bare walls and realize you¿re twenty-one years old and have no memory of the first eleven years of your life. Confused by the dreams that keep haunting you, you cry out in despair, ¿Oh, my God, why am I here? Why was I brought here? Will I have to spend the rest of my life here? Do I have a family? Who am I? ****** Beautiful young Gabrielle Hampshire struggles to find answers. Try as she may, she remembers only that an unknown man delivered her to the austere convent on the outskirts of Paris when she was but eleven years old, and she has been tormented ever since by dreams and visions of frightening red flashes that terrify her. The answers to where she came from, who she is, and why she is in a French convent are a total mystery¿until one day when the unexpected occurs. A letter arrives from England from a man describing himself as Solicitor Collingswood and informing her of her father¿s death. ¿Since you are the only surviving kin of Lord Hampshire,¿ he writes, ¿it is imperative that you decide what to do about your father¿s estate.¿ ****** Gabrielle is ecstatic. For the first time in years, she feels a connection to her unremembered past. Excited and prepared to travel to England, she desperately hopes that in returning to the environment of her childhood days, she will regain the memory of her early life and discover her identity. With the willing assistance of Mother Superior, Gabrielle sets sail across the English Channel to Dover, where she meets Jonathan Briercliff. ****** Fortune smiles on handsome, debonair Jonathan Briercliff, future Duke of Falkhurst, who finds the perfect candidate for the wife he seeks when he rescues a beautiful young woman from an overturned coach. In the aftermath of awakening feelings between them, he discovers Gabrielle is the daughter of the man he defensively killed in a card game after winning title to Hampshire Manor, which Gabrielle believes she now owns. He concocts a growing web of lies to keep her from learning the truth, which he fears will drive her away. Then setting his course of enticement, he expertly seduces her to a state of passionate desire and follows with a proposal of marriage. ****** What ensues is unrelenting action in a wildly convoluted story of unbridled passion, outrageous deceit and shocking injustice, a story of mystery, intrigue and life-changing conflicts, a riveting story of spellbinding suspense and swashbuckling adventure. In Jeanette Cooper¿s thrilling new novel, the action is fast-paced, exciting, and will keep you on the edge of your seat late into the night to the very end of its wonderfully satisfying resolution. ****** Impending Danger is meticulously researched and masterfully written. What a romance! What an adventure! If you miss reading this enthralling novel, you will miss one of the best literary offerings of a lifetime!

Loved this book. I hope Jeanette Cooper has more books for the nook because I just finished reading all of the ones that are available through Barnes and Noble. Excellent Author!

I have the same problem as "Anonymous July 21, 2012". The cover is for Impending Danger but the book inside is Danger Amongst Us. Glad it was free.

I am not sure how to rate this...the book was good but most definitely not what the book description or the book reviewers summarized. WEIRD! With that established, I will review the book you will actually receive when you purchase this book. It is the correct book, just attached to the wrong review info. It is actually about a woman who is in love with a detective, but for practicality she ends up marrying the safer choice, which turns out to be an terrible mistake. She ends up afraid for her life, and the lives of those she loves. Book was very suspensful. Needed better editing, as so many of the e-books do. Missing words, incorrect words and placement, etc. If you can get past that, very good read. A criticism would be that the character development needed work. One of the main characters, Amanda, spoke in a way that was more like formal writing, not how someone would talk. Also, the first third of the book needed to be shortened.
