THE DANGER OF DESIRE by Elizabeth Essex is an amazing historical romance set in 1799 London. It is easy to follow, well written with details and depth. The characters will carry the reader away into their world. This is the story of Naval Captain Hugh McAlden and Meggs Tanner. With intrigue, passion, romance, danger, a traitor, betrayal, distrust, and a sweet sensuality, you can't go wrong with "The Danger of Desire". It is fast paced, with strong characters and a well laid out plot. When a wounded Naval Captain meets a pickpocket who is so much more, what takes place is not only heart rendering but is delicous and sexy. Meggs, will do anything to protect and save her younger brother. Hugh will do anything to find a traitor including getting the help of a thief. Together, they find what they are both looking for and so much more. A must read for any historical romance reader,who enjoys the Georgian period,and family. Received a complimentary copy RATING: 4 HEAT RATING: Mild REVIEWED BY: AprilR, My Book Addiction and More/My Book Addiction Reviews _____ **Please note UPDATED VERSION** As I read this story a few years back, this was a re-read for me. And I absolutely still love this story! Ms. Essex is a fantastic storyteller. Her characters are well rounded and well-developed. The plot is as intriguing, if not more so today, as all those years ago. It is still full of intrigue, passion, romance, danger, a traitor, betrayal, distrust, and a sweet sensuality, you just can't go wrong with reading. If you are one of those readers who enjoy the Georgian period, and the value of family, then definitely pick up "The Danger of Desire". I adore Ms. Essex's writing, she is such a talented author, one who pulls her readers into her stories and holds them in complete and utter awe. What a great read!

'The Danger of Desire' by Elizabeth Essex is book Three in the "Dartmouth Brides. This is the story of Hugh McAlden and Meggs Tanner. I have read this book before as it was first released around 2011. This can be a standalone book. I enjoyed reading this book the first time and was so happy to read it again. This has some funny scene along with some emotional ones. Hugh has definitely met his match when Meggs goes to take a few things from him. It was just as much fun to read the second time as it was the first. I always loved how Meggs and Hugh came together and grew to love each other.
