Lexi's Thoughts:

Too Dangerous to Desire is one of those historical romances that takes you on a ride. You are pulled into the story immediately, feel the rush of adrenaline as the hero and heroine get each other out of some scrapes, and in the end you are left with a love story that threatens to melt your heart. How can you not root for this pair of young lovers who get a second chance?

The Hellhounds sound like a fearsome group, and they have great names. Cameron is considered one of the Hellhounds, he certainly fits the role of a rake though holds no title. Instead of a fearsome man you, along with Sophie, get to know him instead of his reputation. Cam is a boy at heart, he finds excitement and adventure in everything and he stops at nothing to get what he wants. 

Lucky for Sophie what he wants is her. After growing up together and getting into childish mischief they are prepared to take on blackmail and hidden schemes. It is so much fun to see Sophie and Cam as they interact, they have great banter and humor. They feel like a real couple, the kind that have a relationship based on friendship and are going to make it. 

As the third installment of the Lords of Midnight Too Dangerous to Desire keeps up the energy and flow of the first books. Though it is written well enough you could read it as a stand alone you do get a little more from the characters and storyline if you read the previous books first. An excellent wrap up for the series.

Rating: 4 Wines! Gotta love a well written HR!
