Book Description

March 1 1995
Handsome, kind, and unassuming, Mr. Gray seemed the answer to Deborah Weyman's prayers. For once she accepted the position he offered, she would finally be safe from the notorious Lord Kendal, a man she had good reason to believe had murdered her former employer -- and was now after her. But there were certain things about Mr. Gray that Deborah should have noticed: the breadth of his shoulders, the steel in his voice, the gleam in his uncommonly blue eyes -- things that might have warned her that Mr. Gray was no savior, but a very dangerous man....

Too tempting to resist...

Though she posed as a dowdy schoolteacher, Lord Kendal saw right through her disguise to the treacherous beauty beneath. Now, convinced that she alone can tell him the truth about Lord Barrington's murder -- and the whereabouts of Barrington's young son -- he coolly masquerades as the innocuous Mr. Gray. And only when it's too late for Deborah to run will she learn what it means to be at his mercy -- and powerless to resist his seduction....

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Fast-paced and full of surprises, Thornton's (Dangerous to Love) latest novel is an exciting story of romance, mystery, and adventure set in England during the Napoleonic Wars. In the prologue, Deborah Weyman and Quentin, the eight-year-old boy in her charge, witness the murder of the boy's father, Gilbert Barrington. Deborah, who does not see the murderer clearly, hears Barrington address his killer as "Lord Kendal" and is horrified to find that she and Kendal have been named as Quentin's guardians. Fearing that Kendal will kill Quentin to silence him, she takes the boy, assumes a false identity and goes into hiding. Kendal, upon learning that Deborah has abducted Quentin, assumes that she had something to do with Barrington's death and with the espionage Barrington had been about to uncover. He sets out to apprehend her and, when he does, she proves to be a worthy opponent. Their battle of wills is skillfully woven into a complex plot that exuberantly carries the reader through abductions, unmaskings, blackmail and murder. Thornton's firm control of her plot, her graceful prose and her witty dialogue make Dangerous to Kiss a pleasure to read.

2.0 out of 5 stars bah humbug... June 23 2010
By Hayley Cann TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Same formula, different characters.

She's a woman on the run, she lies by necessity (all of which is justifiable of course!)

He's a man on a mission, to find his murdered best friend's son and catch the spy/murderer.

That's the gist of it. There are some twists and turns, but the romantic conflict does not evolve much. I'd read a book by Thornton before, and this recalled it to mind instantly. This is how the conflict is treated. Woman is wrong, man is right. Man is justified in doing pretty much anything he feels is right, because woman is wrong. Then woman is expected to forgive and forget.

To be fair, the hero, Gray was interesting and unusual as he quickly comes to grips with his feelings. He displays some understanding of the heroine's conflicting emotion. The problem is that it doesn't affect his actions. The best thing he does to meet her halfway is wait. Then he gives her an ultimatum. At the end, there is no way I could cheer for them. I hate people, (men or women) who can't question even for one second about whether they are right or not, and the hero suffered from this.

This book failed to do me in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvelous Love Story with Loads of Suspense Dec 30 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Deborah Weyman had been running for so many years - always running it seemed so that when she met the handsome, kind and unassuming Mr. Grey she thanked her lucky stars for the respite and knew that she could finally rest for a little while from the notorious Lord Kendal whom she had every reason to believe had murdered her former employer. Mr. Grey, now here was a man she could trust - so gentle and considerate of her every comfort as he transported her to his home near the town of Wells. It was the answer to her prayer as it was there in Wells, that she had brought her young ward, Quentin, to keep him safe from his father's murderer until she could find a safe place for them both. It wasn't long before a chance meeting led her to discover that her 'savior' Mr. Grey was actually John Grayson, Earl of Kendal the very man she was running from.
After her attempt to escape, she was brought to house where Grey and company did their best to 'break' her into revealing where she had hid Quentin. Even though he was acting beastly, Deborah could not help her physical attraction to Gray, nor his to her even though he thought she was an accomplice to the murder. Once they came to the realization that they were both on the same side and Quentin's welfare was for both of them their utmost concern they began to work together to try to trap the real murderer while the passion that they were feeling for each other sizzled beneath the surface.
As if finding a murderer wasn't mystery enough, Gray had to find out who Deborah really was and what else she was running from, before they could ever find a way to find each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars DANGEROUS TO START LATE AT NIGHT July 28 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A great book from a great storyteller. An exciting beginning to this story pulls you in and doesn't let go. A mystery which you will not figure out until the end. A sexy hero and spunky heroine, great sexual tension and love story. For a change the hero falls in love first. Not the same old same old. Wonderful! A keeper! Try Liz Carlyle, Emma Jensen and Karyn Monk for more exciting reading.
