Format: Paperback
There is a murderer loose in Tampa who is turning authors into erotic works of art then killing them. The killer's M.O. is the same in all the murders. He ties his victims to their beds in classic bondage fantasy poses then tortures and strangles them. Detectives Cole Berkley and Alex Reed have been assigned to find and arrest the potential serial killer before any more writers of erotic fiction are murdered.

This is the basic premise of Dangerous Cravings but the book is so much more complex than that. Detectives Alex Reed and Cole Berkley of the Tampa PD, best friends and longtime partners, are assigned the case and go undercover in the BDSM community to try and trap the killer.

Alex is tough and fearless on the job and handles the high stress effortlessly. But off duty is another story as she craves to be mastered. She writes erotic books under a pseudonym, about bondage and submission, as an outlet for her shameful unfulfilled desires. She has to protect her secret life while on assignment because she fears that Cole will no longer want her as his partner or respect her as a woman if he finds out about the submissive side to her personality.

Cole gets a quick lesson of the D/s world when he and Alex visit the Dominatrix from whom the latest victim was taking lessons, posing as Master and slave. Mistress Samantha soon outs Alex's submissive tendencies as her yearning for discipline is exposed and she can't hide anymore what she is and Cole realizes that for her pain is pleasure.

I could not put this book down. It is an incredible roller coaster of a ride that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.

In the meantime the murderer is not letting up and Alex is next on his list of victims.

Finally! Finally a book about BDSM connected with a great police story. Here we get everything: Sexy scenes and thrilling suspense.
Get your hands on this one and read how Cole and Alex get the guy who killed three women. Also interesting: The story is alternately written by Alex and Cole in first person. Very intriguing.

Detective Cole Berkley and his partner Alex Reed are given the job of
solving two murders committed by a possible serial killer. In both
cases, the murderer has tied up his victim and acted out a scene in an
erotic book. It is now up to Cole and Alex to find the pattern and the

Cole Berkley doesn't understand the BDSM lifestyle and is not sure that
he wants to. Unwilling to believe that any sane person would want to
be spanked and tied up, Cole doesn't see what is happening right before
his eyes. It seems that his partner Alex has a secret, a secret that
she thought was safe from Cole ever finding out.

Detective Alex Reed has dreams. Dreams of being dominated in the
bedroom by a Master. Knowing that her dreams will probably never come
to fruition, she quietly yearns and writes erotic books, never dreaming
that her secret would be exposed. When Alex and her partner Cole are
given the job of finding a serial killer, she has no choice but to let
Cole know exactly what her sexual preferences are. Slowly dying
inside, Alex resigns herself to Cole's hatred. When that doesn't
happen, Alex is unsure of what to think. Will Alex and Cole be able to
solve this case and still remain partners or will her dangerous
cravings tear them apart?

Dangerous Cravings by Evangeline Anderson threw me for a loop. Never
before have I read a novel of such intensity and suspense about the
BDSM lifestyle and its perception by those of society who are "normal".
Cole Berkley, while at first appalled by the desires of Alex, soon
came to realize that her desires might very well be his. As for Alex,
kudos to this woman for sticking to her guns, no matter the

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Except for the BDSM theme, I would almost call this "romantic suspense" or "romantic mystery" rather than erotica. Most of the book is the h&h solving a case. The heroine is a cop who secretly fantasized about being submissive and is a BDSM author. The hero is her cop partner who is naturally dominant but has no interest in the BDSM "scene" and who only dominates her to please her.

With the exception of a few cheesy sections here and there, the writing was well done and crisp with interesting situations and unique characters. But the "erotic" part was pretty weak. There are really only two sex scenes and a couple of very tame BDSM scenes. It was steamy but I've read Kresley Cole and Lisa Kleypas books that are much hotter and even more graphic than the scenes in this book and neither of them get listed as "erotic fiction". I guess the spanky-panky puts it automatically in that genre. Perhaps unfair to the author whose book is overlooked in the contemporary romance category and forced in to a very niche genre.

Some of it was new material - the introduction of a BDSM "trainer" who gave pointers. That was kind of sexy. But I was kind of put off by the constant references to the notion that liking a little dominance or pain with sex in relationships is "sick" and "wrong". Then it is over-explained and justified - sort of. Is the author trying to rationalize why she's writing about this stuff? Seems like if you're reading this kind of book, you want to just enjoy the fantasy - we don't need half a book of lecture about it. Unfortunately a lot of books in this genre do exactly that, and this was another disappointing example.

Despite my complaints, it had a strong story and if you aren't looking for erotic fiction, a la Emma Holly, Lora Leigh, or Opal Carew, then this is a pretty good book.
