During her first and probably only season, someone boldly entered Charlotte's bedroom and abducted the lass. Her cousin Emma Wakefield feels a bit guilty because she arranged for Charlotte to have her season amidst the Ton. Used to taking care of everyone, Emma decides she is capable of rescuing her relative. She concludes that the Marquess of Andover is the most likely culprit as they were to attend his ball next week and rumor has it that he killed his fiancee six years ago.

Emma persuades the Marquess, Sebastian St. Clair, to share a tryst with her. However, instead of kisses, she incarcerates him in her cellar, but he escapes and informs his hostess that he will uncover the identity of the cad and rescue Charlotte. Emma insists on coming with him, but though attracted to one another from the start, neither one anticipated falling in love. However, she has a secret that once revealed will end their relationship before it flourishes.

DANGEROUS is an exciting, action-packed Regency romantic suspense that never slows down as Emma and Sebastian search for Charlotte. The story line combines typical sub-genre elements with a solid amateur sleuth investigative tale including a final intriguing twist. The lead couple is a pleasure to observe while the support cast grants the audience the opportunity to see the stars up front and personal, and even distorted by the author Austen (not that one silly). Debra Dier has furbished her fans with a strong novel that readers will appreciate.
