Overview

Danger Wears White by Lynne Connolly

"Full of political intrigue, steamy romance and plenty of twists and turns...a well crafted story that kept me on the edge of my seat until the very last page. If Lynne Connolly isn't on your auto-buy list, she should be."~Sharon Cullen, author of Sebastian's Lady Spy

Hoping to live down her family’s connections to the traitorous Jacobite cause, Imogen wants nothing more than a quiet life in the country. When she stumbles upon a wounded man, the white cockade in his coat tells her he’s a Jacobite, and a danger to the crown. Yet there’s something about him she can’t resist . . .

In search of a document on behalf of his powerful family, Tony is shot and left for dead. Secreted away to a hidden chamber, he finds himself both a guest and prisoner of a beautiful but mysterious woman. What she wants and who she serves, he cannot know. But what he does understand is the desire burning strongly between them. And that neither of them will be spared until their lust is sated.

When the action moves to London, suddenly it’s Tony who has to act to save Imogen. Forced to become a lady in waiting to Princess Amelia, she is in peril from the Jacobites, who are convinced she is their salvation. Only the strength of Tony and Imogen’s love can save them now.

The second I’ve read in this series, it is most notable for me to see the political and social intermingle, and Connolly’s facility with using these moments to fuel her character’s concerns and choices. With the taint of traitorous behavior from her family’s support of the Jacobite cause, Imogen plans to stay quietly from London, in the country where the slights and dangers from society will not suddenly arise to derail her life. But, those plans are for naught when she comes upon an injured man with insignia that indicates he’s a Jacobite. Arranging for his care, yet wanting to stay apart, she secretes him in her home to heal. Tony is searching for a document that will secure his family, but place Imogen in great danger. Still – their passion cannot be ignored, and the two find common ground in feelings that defy politics, social norms and standing. But when Imogen is called to serve at court, an offer she can’t refuse, she becomes integral in Tony’s search. Interesting pairing of the couple who have enough secrets to sink several ships – many of them dangerous. Both intelligent and passionate, the secrecy and careful steps needed from them both to avoid pitfalls and danger are amassing exponentially. Most curious is the mix of politics, court decorum and restrictions and intrigue that keep this story flowing forward to the end. Rich with history, facts and moments that resemble a chess game for ALL the stakes, the story is intriguing and engaging. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

It took a little while for me to wrap my mind around the terminology but Danger Wears White by Lynne Connolly was full of surprises. Strong heroines are a plus in any book particular romance because so many times they are portrayed as victims in need of rescue. Ms. Connolly gives her female characters equal billing with the males. Imogen so many times could have walked away and turned a blind eye but she stood firm and allowed her sense of heart and conscience to guide her. Courageous, indeed. Tony and Imogen are bound together by danger, tragedy and a sense of right and wrong. To make a difference there is risk but the reward is the fact that someone tried.

DANGER WEARS WHITE by Lynne Connolly is a exciting Regency Historical Romance set in England. 4th in the "Emperors of London" series, but can be read as a stand alone. Fast paced, and adventure filled with political intrigue, passion, romance, mystery and suspense. I was thoroughly engrossed in the story. Read it in one setting. I Loved everything about this story, from the H/H, to the action filled story, the secondary characters, to the passionate kisses, to the love scenes and of course, the storytelling was magnificent. A well written tale with engaging and realistic characters. The storyline is compelling, powerful and engrossing. Another hit for Ms. Connolly! This is a must read for fans of Regency Romance. Highly recommended! *Received for an honest review* Rating: 4.5 Heat rating: hot Reviewed by: AprilR, courtesy of My Book Addiction and More

Wonderful historical romance read! Imogen wants a quiet life in the country but when she finds a wounded man and decides to help him know he is a Jacobite her whole world changes. As she care for Tony their attraction grows, however when Imogene is forced to go to London and serve Princess Amelia will he be able to save her? Lots of drama and suspense with plenty of romance between Tony and Imogen. This book is a part of a series but can be read as a stand-alone. Enjoy!

I received this book for an honest review. I loved this book. Imogene was not a typical heroine. She fought to keep her land and home for herself and managed it well enough to be self sustaining. Her heart was big enough to try helping a wounded stranger, even hiding him to protect him. Only a couple occasions arose where she questioned her feelings and she did not give into despair. Tony almost dies before finding his true love. For him, it was instant and he swore to protect her forever. Quickly and happily married, their love is tested by those around them. There is also a secret that could tear them apart. This is the 2nd book in a series. I will now go find and read the previous one.

Plot twist galore the fourth book in Ms. Connolly's Emperors of London series, Danger Wears White, is one not to be missed. This authors skill at portraying interesting characters shines in her latest work. History and fervent emotion are indeed a dangerous combination but well worth the risk when the end result is a novel like this. Get comfortable because this a one sit read! *I received this ARC via Netgalley* *While part of a series this book can be read as a stand alone*
