This review is from: Too Dangerous to Desire (Mass Market Paperback)
When Adam Westmore's wife dies on a sinking ship his life is turned upside down. Stricken by grief he blames his roguish brother and after trying to kill his brother, retreats to a cottage by the sea to try to find atonement. Instead he one day finds a woman trying to commit suicide, rescues her and then starts a journey of discovery, finding his sense of duty and protection has not gone away.

Evelyn Waye is trying to escape marriage to a murdering evil man the only way she knows how. However when rescued by Adam she bgins to trust his assurances of safety. But can Adam really keep Evie safe? Is there actually darkness and danger inside Adam that might cause her harm? Can Adam give up his vengeance against the pirates he has been chasing for years, and can he heal the rift with his family?

This book was a reasonable read with a variety of situations and an interesting cast of characters, some of whom have clearly been in an earlier novel. At times there was something a little childlike about the writing style with scenes feeling quite short and moments of drama over fairly quickly. Adam's tortured nature was well written although Evie's character was a little harder to get into. Overall this was a reasonably successful read but had few real surprises.
