Romantic Suspense
A desperate search…

Schoolteacher Gracie James has never seen more danger than her kindergarten classroom, but when she goes searching for her missing sister, she’s thrown into a world of sex, crime…and passion. Following a hot lead, she sneaks onto a stranger’s boat—and gets caught. Their one-sided conversation convinces her of two things. One: the guy is seriously sexy. Two: he knows something about her sister. Oh, yeah. And did she mention he’s sexy?

And a sizzling attraction…

Jake Alexander, former cop, is staking out a yacht brimming with criminal activity, for an insurance company, when a woman, dressed to kill and totally irresistible, stumbles into his dangerous undercover op. If he hadn’t tackled her, she’d have tottered straight onto the questionable yacht in those ridiculous high heels. Then she’d be dead. Or worse. As much as he’d like to kick her off his boat, he can’t risk her going off on some hare-brained scheme—but he can’t keep her around to muck up his job. Oh, yeah. And did he mention she’s distracting as hell?

Lead to dangerous desire…

Unfortunately, she has a keen mind of her own. And a body any man would die for. Jake’s attempt to keep Gracie safe quickly morphs into a reluctant alliance. And a whole lot more… But Gracie finds herself knee deep in more trouble than she bargained for, with secrets revealed and the criminals coming after her. Unless they find a way to trust each other, they’re finished. Oh, yeah. And did they mention they’re in love?

Purchase Dangerous Desire

In Dangerous Desire, Gracie is a kindergarten teacher who travels to an exotic tropical location to search for her missing sister. We don’t find out a lot about her as a teacher but her character shines through in her quest and in her relationship with Jake, the sexy hero.

Writing about her made me think about the teachers I had over my school career and the most memorable ones. One of the teachers who really stuck in my mind is one who obviously had no regard for the development of my literacy skills. Mr Young (name changed to protect the innocent) kept confiscating books from me. He wouldn’t let me read!

Can you believe that?

He had no empathy and no understanding of how what a fifteen-year old avid reader had to read the next chapter of Katherine, a historical novel in senior math. Maybe my determination to read my novel beneath the math text book was a dangerous desire...pardon the pun!

Now as a former teacher I can smile and understand what Mr. Young was doing... ah.. he wanted to teach me math...not history!

I am sure he would now smile as he watched my antics as a writer.. going out and crawling through the bush to research a scene in Dangerous Desire. I can just see him shaking his head.

I am sure Gracie would be a lot more understanding as a kindergarten teacher.


Annie Seaton lives with her husband, and ‘Bob’ the dog and two white cats in a house next to the beach on the east coast of Australia. She sits in her writing chair, gazing at the ocean and writing stories. Their two children are grown and married and she loves spending time gardening, walking on the beach and spoiling her two grandchildren. She has always been fascinated by all things romantic and has found her niche in life writing romance novels, ranging through contemporary, historical, suspense and paranormal…but all with romance of course.

Her love of reading and history began at an early age and she was a child who always carried a book (or two) no matter what she was doing. Several of her favourite books were confiscated from beneath her desk by teachers who had no understanding of her capacity to read while she was doing her schoolwork!

Her working life has seen her through several major career changes and Annie has now retired from the world of full time work and has fulfilled her lifelong dream of becoming a published author.

  1. Dangerous Desire sounds exciting! In more than one way, too :) I love romance novels, and if there's some real action scenes blended with the romantic action scenes, all the better!

    I love that the author hid her historical novel underneath her math stuff... I was pretty much the same way.

    Thanks for hosting this awesome giveaway, Braine! Have a fantastic Friday :)

  2. This sounds good, and I love the cover. Yep, I was always sneaking books into Math class, and science class!

  3. I've been enjoying romantic suspense (and thriller, and mystery) lately. I like a good dose of something more than just romance.
    I snuck books into all my classes to get in some reading time. Other than English/literature or writing classes where I actually paid attention.

  4. What a fun post! I used to sneak books into Geometry. I'm pretty sure my teacher noticed, but never took them away from me.
    Thanks for sharing!

  13. Who confiscates books? WTH? That's wrong. For real. :) I used to get in trouble in elementary school for reading ahead in our reading books. They'd be on chapter 2, I'd be done. They'd yell at me for skimming until I could prove that I'd actually read the book. I just read really fast. Absolutely gorgeous cover! Thank you!
