I almost passed on reading this book thinking it was a wild west romance, which is not a genre I like. But what a mistake that would have been! This book is a real page-turner. There's sizzling romance, lots of action and a some suspense since it seems someone is intent on killing the heroine. The hero is brooding, dark and intensely romantic. The heroine is intelligent and vivacious. Opposites attract indeed. The love scenes are very sensual.
Loved this rather unusual story!
Couldn't put this one down~
An emotional read with a tortured hero and a strong-minded heroine who doesn't want to fall for him.
Standing in the English drawing room, the Earl of Perth seemed the quintessential aristocrat: remote, imperious, sophisticated. But Mercy Coltrane had seen him six years earlier in Texas, a gunfighter who was fearless and without remorse.That was why she had followed him here. That was why she needed him now.
I loved this book! At first I thought, I wouldn't get into it. It's the type of book that grabs you and won't turn you loose until the last page.
As usual, Connie Brockway has written a fascinating, heartbreaking, beautiful and triumphant love story in her intensely passionate novel, A Dangerous Man.
Wealthy and dazzling Mercy Coltrane has gone to England all the way from Texas to find her beloved brother, who has lost himself in London's Victorian underworld. Though she has been introduced into society with the ostensible purpose of finding a husband, she has the means to make only one man help her with her real objective: to find her brother so she can reconcile him with their father.
Hart Moreland, the Earl of Perth, had thought that his gun slinging days in Texas would remain secret, especially on the eve of assuring his last unmarried sister's engagement to Lord Acton-a marriage into the ton made possible with the funds he'd secretly amassed as a hired gun.
Mercy's arrival at the Duke of Acton's house party threatens all his plans and plays havoc with his senses. Not just because Mercy still bears the scar where he shot her six years before. And not only because she'll do anything to find her brother, including blackmail. Not even because she's the most beautiful, enchanting, smart and capable woman he's ever met. But because she's able to sense and to touch places inside him no one has ever seen before-places he himself cannot bear to face.
Decent story, a bit darker than other Brockway I've read but enjoyed the Hero and heroine.
