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
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.
