Constance Athelson doesn’t flaunt the
fact she can talk to spirits. Left a widow after her husband
died on an expedition in Egypt, she allows her friend to
talk her into attending the Black Widow’s Ball dressed as
Isis, the Egyptian goddess. There she has a passionate
encounter with a masked man. The vision she has afterward,
though, frightens her and she runs from her lover, despite
the fact she feels drawn to him.
Lucien Blakemore, Earl of Lyndham, has
searched high and low for Isis. When he can’t find her he
decides to retreat to his home to talk with the man he
recently hired to catalogue his Egyptian artifacts. When he
arrives he finds his new employee is not a man, but a woman.
And she’s also his Isis.
Despite the attraction, though, Lucien
battles against something permanent. The curse on the
Blakemore men means his attraction to Constance can only end
in tragedy. Can Constance’s love save him from his eventual
spiral into madness that has caused death in the last
generations of Blakemores, or will Constance help Lucien to
get to the bottom of the curse, so they can be together

way they battled them, and came to the eventual conclusion,
kept me turning the pages and rooting for their happily ever
Dangerous is full of
interesting side characters who added to the mix. I enjoyed
the way Ms. Burns kept me guessing right until the end. I
adore things with Egyptian mythology, and a good ghost story
always pulls me in. Dangerous has both of
those elements, and is sure to charm readers.
