The Caribbean: home to crystalline beaches, scorching passions, and a twisted power hell-bent on destruction. DANGEROUSLY YOURS is a sizzling paranormal romance in which love is not the only force of nature…
Whales don’t just vanish from the ocean, but marine biologist Lex Durand saw one do just that. With years of research at stake and driven by the imperatives of her telepathic bloodline, she seeks the help of scientist-in-hiding Bodie Flynn - a man with little regard for others, and even less regard for Lex’s wealthy and secretive family. But while Lex was warned Bodie would be difficult, she never expects to find he has psychic abilities equal to her own.
Bodie despises being trapped in Durand Tech’s version of the witness protection program, and when a gorgeous, whip-smart Durand heiress lands on his beach asking for help, he’s unhappier still. The last person he wants in his life is the sister of the man who ruined him, but the disappearance of Lex’s whales could be related to the bizarre energy shifts he’s been studying in the Caribbean. He doesn’t trust Lex, but he needs her data, and isn’t above using her to get it.
As the dangerous force behind the changing seas becomes deadly, Lex and Bodie must put aside their personal agendas to track down a powerful foe. But when their attraction reaches a boiling point, facing their feelings may prove the hardest battle yet.

This was a fun read. It was quick and a lot of action. The romance was there but not the main focus.
As I was reading this exciting paranormal book I had no idea it was a debut novel by the author. This is a polished piece of work. The world building for a complex story of parallel worlds, psychic energy, and the use of technology as a force for good and for evil is excellent. The characters are fully developed. Lex is a powerful woman who has many strengths, including knowledge of marine mammals and a bizarre psychic ability. She also has a brother who I was never sure whether he was the good guy Lex believed him to be or not quite someone we can root for in the final battle (it does become apparent at the end). Lex is six feet tall so who better to be the man she falls for than the six foot seven inch genius inventor Bodie. Bodie is a revenant, which means he has at some point been brought back from the dead. Or has he? Bodie’s background is part of the mystery and suspense at the root of the story. Lex and Bodie must find the ultimate criminal mind who is bent on nothing less than world domination by terroristic means and the perversion of technology invented for other purposes. I loved this book and couldn’t read it fast enough. Every page turn meant either a red herring, a clue, or one more step toward finding out exactly what is going on and who can be trusted. I think I took a deep breath at the end, not realizing I was holding my breath as Bodie and Lex tried to keep a cruise ship loaded with happy families from…but I am about to say too much. To spoil the ending of this book would be a travesty. I highly recommend this book as a thriller, a sexy romance, a paranormal mystery, and a rollicking good story.
