About the Author
Fueled by Pacific Northwest coffee and inspired by multiple viewings of every British costume drama she can get her hands on, USA Today bestselling author Christy Carlyle writes sensual historical romance set in the Victorian era. She loves heroes who struggle against all odds and heroines who are ahead of their time. A former teacher with a degree in history, she finds there’s nothing better than being able to combine her love of the past with a die-hard belief in happy endings.

Anyone who expects a simplistic romance will be sorely disappointed! Christy Carlyle weaves a captivating story, peopled with intriguing and very complex characters. Ms. Carlyle establishes the story, introduces the characters in such an enticing way, that had nothing happened, I would not have cared a whit, because the author’s attention to detail and the precision of her descriptions of Victorian London alone would make ONE DANGEROUS DESIRE worth reading, but then again, a lot happens in that book! I love how the author subtly weaves the romance and business dealings in one flawless whole, and there are many twists and turns to the meticulously constructed plot. The dialogues are superb, the prose luminous and seamless, and the romance entirely believable. And ONE DANGEROUS DESIRE is so very romantic! All those small gestures, those little nothings that Rex and May exchange; the love and respect between these two is palpable. ONE DANGEROUS DESIRE is a compelling story, with a feeling of authenticity that permeates every paragraph, with main very relatable main characters, set in a time on the cusp of change, of women striving for more independence, with just the right amount of romance, business dealings and daily life. I am already looking forward to the Ms. Carlyle’s next book!
I receive a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

May Sedgwick remained under her father's thumb. They have come to London, also, for her to have a season in the Marriage Mart and find a very wealthy, titled Lord to wed. Sedgwick's stores in New York and Chicago are failing so he is looking for opportunities to open a Sedgwick's-London. Amy's status as the wife of a Lord will ensure it's success with the elite rich.
Their mutual searches lead them to a surprising and volatile reunion. They focus on a brother and sister but being brought together constantly on double dates proved to be a lesson in futility. There was no way they could ever become brother/sister-in-laws.
Our antagonist, her father, layed down the gauntlet at the Sedgwick's-London groundbreaking. He announced to the press and dignitaries that he is returning to NYC and Sedgwick's-London is now his daughter's store, to lure her away from Rex (he's obviously not had one of Rex kisses). But our 'H' was NOT having any of that. She and Rex announced to all their engagement.
Not to be outdone, Rex's long lost father (never in his life) who abandoned his mother after their wedding, wants his share of his wealth. I'm not telling you any more. You will love it as much as the first two in the Accidental Heiress series.
It was good but not great. It passed the time nicely.
