If you enjoy your romance and seduction slathered on thick with an interesting plot and stellar writing, then definitely check out this series. You won’t mind it when the Hellhounds bite! ~Under the Covers

Sophie Lawrence and Cameron Daggett were fire together before Sophie decided on a life without Cameron. Losing Sophie was hard on Cameron has made a life for himself through his thieving ways. However, years later he plans on stealing back the one thing that he covets most: Sophie’s heart.

TOO DANGEROUS TO DESIRE is the third book in the Lords of Midnight series. I found that Cara Elliott writes very well and I had no problems plowing through this book. The flow is great, the words seem to flow so effortlessly and there are some good humorous moments that made me smile.

In terms of the characters and romance, I felt that Cameron was a bit of a lothario – saying all the things things at the right moments. In a way, it affected the believability of the book because there is no way that any hero is that smooth. But I think it worked for Sophie because she was just as dramatic with her own actions.

If you enjoy your romance and seduction slathered on thick with an interesting plot and stellar writing, then definitely check out this series. You won’t mind it when the Hellhounds bite!

About Cara Elliott

Cara Elliott started creating books at the age of five, or so her mother tells her. And Mom has the proof preserved in a family scrapbook—a neatly penciled story, the pages lavishly illustrated with full color crayon drawings of horses. Cara has since moved on from Westerns to writing about Regency England, a time and place that has captured her imagination ever since she opened the covers of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice.”

A graduate of Yale University, Cara has garnered numerous accolades for her writing, including two Daphne Du Maurier Awards for Historical Mystery /Suspense and two RITAs nominations for Regency Romance. (She also writes a historical mystery series under the nom de plume Andrea Penrose.)

Cara loves to travel to interesting destinations around the world—however, her favorite spot is London, where the funky antique markets, used book stores and specialty museums offer a wealth of inspiration for her stories.

Cara also writes under the pen names Andrea Pickens (Traditional Regencies and swashbuckling Spy Regencies) and Andrea Penrose (A Regency-set mystery series)

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
