4 stars-- The Danger of Desire (Sinful Suitors #3) by Sabrina Jeffries

#BloggerShame, yall. Blogger Shame. I read The Danger of Desire way back before it released last year and then... I forgot to review it. :facepalm: By the time I realized, yeah, I couldn't remember details so had to re-read. And, oh, I had just as much fun this time!

The Gist: Family is difficult. And meddlesome. And sometimes that lands you watching over a chit you don't even know and who's courting scandal with apparent relish! I mean, honestly, men's clothing, late night prowling, gambling in the hells?! What's a rakish Marquess to do with a woman like that?! Drive her mad and make her his, of course!

Delia and Warren, oh they were a handful! Fiery, opinionated, unconventional...and in the best possible ways. These two were hilarious, sexy, sweet and just a blast to spend time with as they baited one another. They're both stubborn and passionate. Determined, curious, persistent. And easy to like even if they did need a shake now and again. They're so earnest and both hiding deep hurts. I loved watching them battle each other and their inner issues and figure things out.
"Surely you see that we have no choice but to marry."

An insultingly large sigh escaped her. "I suppose."

"Do contain your enthusiasm at the prospect," he said dryly. 
There's a good spot of mystery happening since Delia is on the hunt for a card sharp that ruined her family. And, well, Warren's got two options. 1] get on board and help her or 2] she'll steam roll right over him and his protective self and go about it on her own. lol I wasn't totally surprised by the reveal but I enjoyed the whole ride and watching the two battle as they went about hunting the person they were after.

All in all, The Danger of Desire was another win from Jeffries. Delightful, passionate characters and a captivating adventure.

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 fa├žade, 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?
