HASH(0xa7375918) out of 5 stars Another Fabulous Book by Rice! July 5 2008
By lovesbooks - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Dangerous Secrets," another great book by Rice, is a tight, erotic, and suspenseful romance with the usual strong, honorable, loner hero, coupled with a feminine woman in a dangerous world. Rice loves to use conventionally feminine careers for her heroines--librarians, decorators, etc.--who match the hero in honor and duty. Charity thinks Vassily is just her friend, the world-famous writer who had endured years in a Russian gulag, not the terrorist he is. She also doesn't know that her startling resemblance to his dead lover has made her the focus of his dangerous obsession. Rice is excellent in conveying villains' menace and evil without giving the gory details--an choice I appreciate. Nick, a Homeland Security agent passing as a retired stockbroker, plans to use Charity to plant bugs in the Russian's mansion. He does not plan, however, to fall in love and is both bewildered and dismayed as that happens. Like Rice's other heroes, Nick is hugely protective, tender, and sexy. If you love a romance novel for its hero, you will love this one! Rice captures the intense excitement of sex between two people in the beginning of their relationship in her explicit scenes between Nick and Charity. Charity is not a vapid heroine as she, also, falls in love, and when faced with the truth that a man she has admired and trusted is a deadly enemy to the US and to the world, she does not engage in typical heroine stubborn denials. Instead, she acts courageously, attempting to save her country and innocent lives. If you love intense, suspenseful, and erotic romances, you'll love this one!

HASH(0xa737596c) out of 5 stars Dangerous Secrets July 12 2008
By Kelly - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Nick Ireland has spent the better part of his life being someone else. Known as the Iceman, he assumes new personas with each new undercover assignment. His assignment this time was to get close to Charity Prewitt. She has befriended Vassily Worontzoff a world renowned writer thinking he was a broken man after all he has suffered through in his life when in fact he is an ice cold clever terrorist. Vassily is also obsessed with Charity because she is a mirror image of his deceased love, Katya. Nick insinuates himself into her life through her work at the library when he goes there to perform some research on a new business venture. Having only seen her from a distance, he is blindsided at her beauty, and humbled at her charming innocence. Nick has had to have many sexual encounters in the line of duty, but none before have claimed his heart and soul like this woman has. From the moment they met, the chemistry between them was explosive surprising them both.

When Nick felt things start closing in, he knew something big was about to happen. He knew that he had to do anything to protect Charity. The only thing he could think of was to marry her. If they were married, and he was killed in this mission, his team would protect her with any and all resources at their disposal. He also called, and had his will changed naming her his only beneficiary. Nick knew it was wrong to marry her while undercover, but this one time he was following his heart.

I have been reading LMR's books for a long time enjoying them all. This one is no exception. Nick and Charity are well written multi-layered characters making a wonderful couple. Strong, silent, and completely alpha Nick is just what the doctor ordered. He encompasses the all American hero, and is very appealing. Charity is his perfect counterpart. She is a strong centered woman that puts her life on the line when the chips are down. This story has suspense and incredibly hot erotic scenes. The only thing I didn't like was the abrupt ending. We go on this long journey with Nick and Charity only to have it all wrapped up in a couple of pages.

HASH(0xa7375c48) out of 5 stars Another Enjoyable Read July 4 2008
By Daffinie - Published on
Format: Paperback
Rushed home from work to rip open the Amazon package so I could curl up with Lisa Marie Rice's newest hero. I enjoyed this heroine more so than some of the previous ones - she wasn't clueless about how she ended up in her man's arms or bed. She read the signals, thought about them and decided she definitely wanted what he had to offer. In addition, in Ms. Rice's previous books, as much as I enjoyed the story, the HEA was always rushed for me: acknowledge love, get heroine out of danger, a one page or paragraph epilogue that might not even reference the hero and heroine. In this one, there is a 3 page epilogue with just the hero and heroine! Way more satisfying.

The only drawback to me, and I am actually still on the fence on whether this should be a nit or not, is that, again, the hero and heroine were both only children, orphaned at early ages, with not much to look forward to in the future, living fairly satisfactory lives - these characters (to me) were too interchangeable with those from "Dangerous Lover".

All in all, I spent an enjoyable evening immersing myself in this book - I definitely recommend this book!

HASH(0xa737c180) out of 5 stars Dangerous Secrets Nov. 22 2009
By K. Hill - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
THE PLOT: Nick Ireland is undercover in a small town to bring down the head of an organized Russian crime syndicate. Charity Pruitt is the local librarian and best friends with the Russian criminal.

PROS: The best part of the book is near the end when Charity finds out that Nick has been lying to her. It's like she finally wakes up and becomes a real person. The conclusion wraps up nicely. I always appreciate an epilogue.

CONS: Where to begin? Charity and Nick go on their first date (which occurs the day they meet) and barely talk to each other, but she almost immediately knows she will sleep with him that night. Why? Mostly the reason seems to be that it's a small town and he's the best offer to stroll through. The main fault of this book is that it is overwhelmingly BORING. It's as though someone went through and edited out all the interesting parts. Their first time sleeping together ends rather abruptly. The next day it's mentioned that they made love all night long. Charity, when we eventually get to know what she thinks again, believes that he's a good lover. Not from what I read. The love scenes are boring also. They read like an instruction manual. The most interesting love scene in the entire novel is when Charity is recalling some of the lovemaking Nick and she shared to which we were not privy. Guess it was too interesting and hit the cutting room floor. Just like the rest of their first night together. You know what wasn't cut? Endlessly tedious and repetitious propaganda about how Nick is such a cool cucumber, about his previous assignments, about how he's never behaved this way. Why? Because the Iceman has fallen in love in one day with a woman who's about as interesting as cardboard. That's right. Charity is boring, too. The most interesting thing about her is how she lost her parents and had to learn to walk again. That's mentioned briefly about twice. Charity doesn't feel fully fleshed out. Most of the novel is told from Nick's point of view. And Nick, though dedicated to his country, just isn't that likable. Or special. He spends most of his time behaving like an overemotional ninny. So not cool. There's also WAY too much information about Vassily, the Russian criminal. We have more a background and development on him than we do on Charity. There's also too much detail given to his terrorist plot. These details feel especially wasted considering how swiftly the ending deals with this.

2 STARS: I struggled to finish this one and actually completed FOUR e-books while still reading this. I recommend borrowing this from the library or reading any of the books in this author's Midnight Series instead. They're all better in every sense.

HASH(0xa7375a2c) out of 5 stars Not sure about this one Aug. 16 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I got nervous after reading the prologue and first few chapters of this book. Now, having finished it, I know why...

Generally speaking I like Ms Rice's Alpha Males. But I have to agree with another reviewer, there was a certain "ick" factor to this book. I just didn't warm up to the Hero at all.
The Hero was, in most ways, a typical Rice Hero, ex-special forces, very Alpha male, masculine, devastatingly sexy, completely emotionally stunted. But his back story was......icky.... I mean, he is intimate with women he despises as part of his job. There's a word for that. Prostitution!
I get that her Hero's don't have the same emotional maturity that "normal" people do, they are a product of their environment. But this one was just too inaccessible.
Ms Rice doesn't generally "do" the "Big Misunderstanding/Huge Betrayal". And I really like that. Alpha Male meets his lifetime mate, struggles with the completely new emotions, but understands at a visceral level, that this is it "The One"'.
And yet, this book, IMO, has what is a HUGE Betrayal. Maybe not the top Betrayal (infidelity, can't get past that), but
1. He lies to her about......EVERYTHING
2. He seduces her to get information.
3. He marries her under a false identity
4. He fakes his own death, breaking her heart in the process.

And what about this book annoys me the most.......there is little to NO Grovel. If he'd had to, at the very least, grovel, fight, prove himself.....well then ok. But no, Alpha Male kicks in. "you are mine" "Arrgghh" (beating chest). And the heroine is all " yes dear, whatever you say lover" .
Sigh...I really, really like her other books. 5 stars across the board... But unfortunately..not this one.
Ms Rice. HUGE Betrayal? Always, ALWAYS = HUGE Grovel.
