To root out the card cheat responsible for her brother's death, Miss Delia Trevor spends her evenings dancing her way through high society balls, and her late nights disguised as a young man gambling her way through London's gaming hells. Then one night, handsome Warren Corry, the Marquess of Knightford, a notorious member of St. George's Club, recognizes her. When he threatens to reveal her secret, she's determined to keep him from ruining her plans, even if it means playing a cat-and-mouse game with the enigmatic rakehell.
Warren knows the danger of her game, and he refuses to watch her lose everything while gaining justice for her late brother. But when she starts to delve beneath his carefully crafted facade, can he keep her at arm's length while still protecting her? Or will their hot desires explode into a love that transcends the secrets of their pasts?

This was a good story. I really liked the characters quite a bit. I always like a heroine that dresses up as a man sometimes.
Delia was a good lead character. She was funny when she was dressed as a man. It made for some LOL moments. She was witty and had spunk!
Warren was a bit of a surprise to be honest, didn't see the manwhore coming. LOL but he was a great character. The chemistry between the two was very good. It felt real and genuine.
The story line and plot was very good with an interesting twist at the end! Yay love a surprise twist. There was lots of fantastic dialogue all throughout the entire book.
I did like the second book in this series the most. But they were all good and fun listens.
As for the narration. I am a fan of Beverly Crick. She is much better now than she was 2 years ago. She does the men's voices very well. Everyone gets their own distinct voice and she reads with every emotion the story calls for, ie laughing, crying, giggling, snorting, etc. She does a great job and I really enjoy her narrations.
I've read hundreds of these romances and have most figured out before the middle of the book. This story had a.huge surprise at the end and it made my day. Definitely worth the credit.
I write romantic suspense with a little southern grit. I love romance & adventure w/a little mystery & suspense. I believe in happy endings.
Audiobooks have become an obsession! I listen to them in the car, at work and cleaning house! They are perfect when your favorite writers come out with a new book and you're too busy to stop and read!
I have been a fan of Sabrina Jeffries for many years. Meeting her in person was the highlight of my existence! She's a fabulous lady and I adore her stories.
The Danger of Desire is one of her best yet! She combines grief, intrigue and desire into a tale that has the reader gasping for more!
Beverley A. Crick's performance of this story brings to life the characters and the time period.
If you love a little matchmaking, strong characters with a heroine willing to risk all for those she loves, and a handsome rake who has a dark secret, you will love The Danger of Desire!
Quite a nice read/listen. I'm a Sabrina Jeffries fan and this latest book did not disappoint.
I won't go into the plot; that's available elsewhere. The characters were fun and enjoyable as was the story. The narration was top-notch.
I did find the resolution of the gambling storyline a bit confusing and rushed but not enough to ruin the book for me.
I look forward to the next book in this series.
