Dangerous In Love by Sidney Bristol is a phenomenal romantic suspense. Ms. Bristol has delivered a well-written book and furnished it with outstanding, lovable characters. Lacey is a free spirit backpacking and video blogging her adventure when she is kidnapped. Shane is part of the Aegis Group and his team is tasked with the job of rescuing a married couple. When they find Lacey with the couple, they rescue her also. Shane and Lacey's story is packed with drama, action, humor, suspense and sexy bits. I enjoyed every page of this fantastic book and look forward to reading more from Sidney Bristol in the future. Dangerous In Love is book 1 of the Aegis Group Alpha Team Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Sterling thinking this is a dumb ideal until he looks up and sees Tilly. Sterling knows of Tilly through what he has heard trough her parents circle. But when he sees her at the auction he knows that she is his.
This was a hot, quick instant love book. This was my first book by this author but I so enjoyed this one that I hope to read more of her books soon.
The rating will most likely depend on whether you read this story as a stand alone or withing the series. As a part of the series, it might easily fetch 5 stars.
The book starts in a humorous fairy tale fashion, pulling you right in: the characters are somewhat familiar, the setting is typical, the story is easy to follow. You know this set-up, you move along, quite sure of yourself and the boys in the tale.
However, just as you begin to think "oh, I know where it's going!", the unusual (especially where the puzzled Prince is concerned) turn of events shifts the story line and you find yourself as puzzled as the Prince himself. Series of hot, steamy and very passionate almost - but not quite! - dub-con scenes follow, with still enough plot and humor to go around.
In the end, all parties get what they deserve and want.
No kittens, tigers or babies were actually hurt (much) during the production of this book :D
