This is the third book in Ms. Elliott's Lords of Midnight Series and out of the three, my personal favorite.

If you love reading about bad boys, then you’ll love this one. Cameron is a thief that looks like a pirate (with an earring too). He is the last of the Hellhound that’s not taken the plunge or fallen into a parsons trap, but not for long.

Sophie is a vicar’s daughter by birth, and a devoted daughter and sister who would do anything to protect her family and avoid scandal. That’s why she braves the slums and enters the Wolf’s Lair to meet a man that’s endangering her family.

I always loved Cara Elliot’s prose, but once I read the intro into this story, I was hooked. Here is what Cam feels as he hears a familiar voice in the hallway of the hell …

“The voice stirred a myriad of memories… None of them good. Soft and sensuous as summer sunlight, it tickled around his head, a tantalizing whisper, wrapping his brain in a seductive swirl of honeyed heat and gold-kissed sweetness.
Another word floated through the half-open door and suddenly the sensations were like a serpent, trailing a sensuous slither over bare flesh, only to strike with diamond bright fangs.”

With a wonderful character development, fast pace and an intriguing mystery to be solved, this romance packs a well-rounded punch for all of my bookworms that love a second chances love story.

I loved the aspect of mystery, chase and danger. I found it worked nicely with the story. The romance was very touching and sultry at the same time. The inner struggles added the sense of realism to the story. ( )

TOO DANGEROUS TO DESIRE by Cara Elliott is an exciting Regency historical romance. Book 3 in the "Lords of Midnight" trilogy,but can be read as a stand alone. See, "Too Tempting to Resist",and "Too Wicked to Wed". Follow, Cameron Daggert and Sophie Lawrence on a adventure of desire,truth,seduction, passion,danger and love. Fast paced with a sassy,"good girl" heroine and a charming "bad boy" hero. With an engaging plot,delightful,charming characters,a bit of mystery,intrigue,and of course a long buried love you can't go wrong with "Too Dangerous To Desire". Another hit for this author. What a wonderful storyteller and a wonderful way to end a trilogy. A must read for anyone who enjoys a great fast paced,action, adventure,historical romance and the Hellhounds of England. Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley.

In the third book in the Lords of Midnight series, Elliott gives us a very prim and proper heroine and a dangerous rogue of a hero. They are getting their second chance at love, though neither know it.

Sophie Lawrance has always done what she thought best for her family. That includes not eloping with her neighbor Cam Daggett when they were both young and in love. Now years later Sophie has pretty much declared herself on the shelf and working hard to make sure her younger sister's engagement and marriage happen smoothly. She finds herself in a predicament when she is blackmailed with information about her deceased father. She will do anything to keep this from affecting her sister's engagement.

Cam chances on Sophie as she is delivering something to her blackmailer at the Wolf's Lair, a gaming den and brothel. This is the last place he ever thought to see Sophie. He's intrigued and can't stop himself from seeing her again and then helping her with her blackmailer.

Sophie acted a bit too proper for me. It was a little hard for me to relate to her in the beginning. But I liked her perseverance and her more relaxed attitude with Cam later in the story. Cam fights his attraction to Sophie through much of the story, because he thinks he is not good enough for her. He hasn't led the most moral life. But he's loyal and tough. I did enjoy his slow turn to realizing he deserved love, happiness, and Sophie. Their romance had a real enjoyable push and pull.

Definitely a nice finale to this trilogy.

Can a Flame from the Past be Rekindled?

Long ago, Sophie Lawrance chose prudence over passion, rejecting a rebellious young rogue for the sake of her family-no matter the ache it left in her heart. But after a specter from her father's past resurfaces, threatening to destroy all she holds dear, the desperate beauty knows there is only one man whose shadowy skills can save her.

Or Is It Too Dangerous to Play with Fire?

Cameron Daggett is a man of many secrets . . . and many sins. He's never forgotten the pain of losing Sophie. But now, with a chance to win her back, Cameron sets aside his anger and agrees to help Sophie save her father's honor. Together they embark on a perilous masquerade, leading them to a remote country estate near the sea. There, they must battle a cunning adversary-and their own burning desires. Will they be consumed by the flames? Or can they prove that true love conquers all?

To save her father's honor, Sophie Lawrance turns to Cameron Daggett, a man from her past whom she betrayed, and together they embark on a dangerous deception to battle a dark enemy--and their own burning desires.
