We continue the saga of the Danger and Desire series. We start the book with Miss Averil Heydon wash ashore found by a motley crew of men. However, was reacued by Captin Luc d'Aunany. Luc is torn with the duty to find out who is the traitor and nursing the girl back to health.

The mission a success, yet somewhere along the road he loses his heart, but doesn't recognize that it's gone. Isn't that always the case. Growing up with a lost identity he was sure who he really is, half French and half B
Esse livro começa onde o anterior termina, mas corre independente, então dá para ler separado sem medo, mas é claro que a gente sempre fica curiosa e quer saber mais detalhes! Hehehehe!!!
A mocinha, Averil, sofre um naufrágio (que aconteceu no outro livro) e aparece desacordada e nua em uma praia. Dois homens com cara de tarado aparecem e resolvem se divertir com a "sereia" meio morta, mas ela é salva a tempo pelo mocinho, Luc, um homem que tem uma missão misteriosa na ilha, e que para manter o s
This was a pretty good book. I liked the characters and the story line. There were a few twists, plenty of emotions, some aggravating head bashing moments, some hold-your-breath parts, a really mean oh-no-they-didn't scene and a good ending. This is something I wouldn't mind reading again. Good for snuggling in, cuddling up and relaxing with cocoa or popcorn. Enjoy
This was fabulous. The transformation of Averil from shy, good girl to strong, sensuous woman, with a mind of her own, was so very nicely done. I adored her and Luc. His inability to see beyond what he thought he wanted and what he really wanted was well brought out, too. I adored them as a couple. I had really liked Averil as Dita's friend in the first book Ravished by the Rake and it was so interesting to see her become herself fully in this story. The final touch of how Dita and Alistair re ...more
Definitely the best of the three books in the trilogy! Luc and Averil. WHOO. Luc is dangerous, mysterious, and damn sexy. You could have written a book about him eating soup and I would read it. What a fascinating character. His journey for redemption is just amazing. Averil's journey to becoming a strong independent woman who can speak her mind is also a plus for this book.

Final Thoughts: DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!

Typique de la collection, mais pas trop mauvais !

Not sure that Luc is a complete scoundrel, but this was still a fun read. It also made me break my rule of not reading series out of order, since I'm yet to track down the first book of the trilogy but have started on the third. A good cast of supporting characters too -- more than I'd expect in a book of this type -- and all of them give the impression of having their own stories to tell even if those wouldn't quite fit the category restrictions.
Ce livre m'a totalement emportée ! Je n'ai pas pu m'arrêter de lire entre la première et la dernière ligne
Un vrai coup de cœur !

Estou começando a amar os livros dessa autora...a única coisa que me incomoda são os finais muito corridos.
Me sirvio para conocer a la autora, resulta entretenida y para pasar un buen rato esta bien.
