5 Touching Things about Cara Elliott’s “Too Dangerous to Desire”
(May contain Spoilers)
1. The Story
The story overall was very engaging as you try to figure out everyones’ motives as one character is being blackmailed, another’s birthright is being denied, and then the suspicious death of a whole family.
2. Childhood Sweethearts
Sophie and Cameron grew up together and they are adorable, there is just something heartwarming about childhood sweethearts.
3. Birth Control
“Too Dangerous to Desire” is the first romance novel that I’ve come across (that I remember) that includes any mention of birth control. Although it is only briefly mentioned, Cara Elliott allows her story to be that much more realistic having her characters take measures to prevent pregnancy.
Cara Elliott includes some pretty steamy and romantic scenes in “Too Dangerous to Desire.”
5. Partners in Crime
Cameron and Sophie had plenty adventures as kids. And even as adults Cameron teaches Sophie a few tricks of the trade and includes her on some of his “jobs.” While he worries for her, he also realizes that she is an equal and she can make her own decisions.
