Dangerous Passion by Lisa Marie Rice

Feelings kill faster than bullets.

That is Drake's creed. A legend, a renegade, a ruthless, powerful enigma understood by no one and feared by all, Viktor "Drake" Drakovich heads up a billion-dollar empire—and shows no mercy to the many enemies who would stop at nothing to destroy him. He is a man with no love and no weakness, until...

Grace Larsen takes Drake's breath away the first time he sees her—and quickly becomes his obsession. Never before has he burned for someone the way he desires this hauntingly beautiful artist who is plagued by troubling dreams. He aches to possess her, to protect her, to carry her to new heights of sensuous arousal and rapturous release.

But entering Drake's world means becoming a target—for relentless, bloodthirsty foes have been eagerly waiting for him to expose his weak spot. And the price of their passion may be their lives.

Feelings kill faster than bullets -- Drake’s creed.

Victor "Drake" Drakovich is a legend. A man who deals straight but who makes a deadly enemy when crossed. Head of a billion-dollar empire, he is a target for greedy men everywhere. For Drake’s in a terrifyingly dangerous business and lives surrounded by tight security and has survived numerous attempts on his life. His enemies would love to find a weakness, but Drake doesn’t have human weaknesses, certainly not women. He trusts nobody, he is nobody’s friend, he loves no one.

Until one day he comes across Grace Larsen, a gifted artist and a gentle beauty -- and his world is turned upside down. Suddenly Drake’s dangerous passion for this woman makes him a target. Loving her is a huge risk. It doesn’t feel that way, though. It feels like…life itself.

His enemies are after him, but he will stop at nothing to protect his woman and his newfound love.

Romantic suspense has never been this thrilling or scintillating...

I have read all the books in the author's Dangerous series. I have loved them all. I really enjoy her "alpha males". They have everything you could possibly want in a traditional hero; they're physically strong,emotionally tough (yet tender) even ruthless at times but they are respectful of women. They have a particular reverence for that one woman who has captured their heart. And they will do everything in their power to keep her safe. I realize that these heros may not be very PC but WHO CARES! These guys are HOT! The women in these stories more than rise to meet the challenge of being loved by these heroes. This book is well worth the price of admission into a world where men are men and women are loved by them!

I'm a huge Lisa Marie Rice fan but "Dangerous Passion" falls short of the first two installments of this trilogy. The book feels hurried and the plot veers wide of reality. Does anyone believe that a gun battle, resulting in multiple corpses, outside of a swanky Manhattan art gallery would go unnoticed by the FBI, CIA or even the local police? I know things are tough for us single city girls, but Ms Rice makes hooking-up down right bloody, killing off a surprising number of people before our heroine scores a first kiss. This brings us to the other problem in the book, the heroine, Grace Larson. Ms Rice writes about women who are slightly removed from the mainstream. Whether it's their location, or a family or health tragedy, their circumstances make them touchingly innocent and in need of a strong protector. Grace, however, was too removed. She was so singularity focused on her art that I started to wonder if she suffered from Asperger's Syndrome. Much the way crayons are given to traumatized children; a set of new art supplies easily distracts her from the violence and chaos that suddenly enters her life. Still the book isn't all-bad. The hero, Victor "Drake" Drakovich, comes across as a genuine, despite his unrealistic lifestyle. As an alpha-male, he doesn't lack anything. He treats Grace well, and stops at nothing to protect her. I love that he is Slavic, a refreshing flip from all evil Eastern Block mobsters that fill the movies these days. More importantly I love the fact that he is stands under 6'. I like tall men but height isn't everything. Too many beautiful, sculpted, alpha-males are passed over by men who have nothing on them except a few inches. Those inches can easily be distributed elsewhere! With more time and thought I think Dangerous Passions might have been a better read. And I don't blame Ms Rice's entirely for its failure. The romance industry is more interested in franchises and was probably hurrying her to finish the third book. What is wrong with a pair of good books? Maybe it because there isn't a word that precedes "trilogy". I hope this isn't the last book from this author writing as Lisa Marie Rice. Now that would be a disappointment.

BUY BUY BUY. I read this book in a day. I just couldn't put it down. I enjoyed the story and main characters. So what a lot of the stuff is unbelievable; BUT, so what. It's a book not the cure for cancer. It definitely entertained me. There are twists and some loose ends that have me hanging; hence, the reason I gave the book 4 stars instead of a 5 star rating. What happened to the snitch, original men including right hand assistant, and the revenge sponsor? Why sell art now? I think the author should have given me more closure / answers. Unless, this there's going to another book that provides me with the answers. Nonetheless, i enjoyed my ride.

I found this to be a fantasy that is close to my heart. The three of these novels are a great starter for those just getting into reading romance novel.

I found the character development was lacking and I also find it hard to believe that anyone who is that introverted would hop into bed with someone else that quickly. Sorry, not as good as I hoped it would be.

I enjoyed reading this book souly becasue Drake was a bad guy, in every sense of the word. His business was illegal and he was lethal. He did not hide it and in the end worked it out so he could be with the one he loved. I would like to know what happens with the baby. In the novella there was not mention of it. :)
