Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This novella was originally published by NAL/Penguin in a collection with bestselling authors Cherry Adair and Jill Shalvis in 2005.  It's probably one of the most sensual stories I've written, but I still made substantial changes for this digital re-release...why?  Because of reader feedback!  I tweaked the circumstances and turned up the heat.  I hope my new readers will go along for the wild ride while Dante desperately tries to repair the one relationship that matters to time to save the world.  Happy reading!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun & Sexy Fast-paced Romance September 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dare Me is a fast-paced fun and sexy novella. I loved that Macy is such a strong and smart woman. Although Dante appears to be pretty devious, I still found him to be super sexy in that secret agent/007 kind of way. Macy is forced to work with Dante again to try and save the world. She is allowed full access to search their current location during the day for a price...she will be his each and every night.

After so many years, Dante is full of surprises. Macy doesn't know what to expect as Dante slowly seduces her. In fact, the slow seduction was hotter than if they had just jumped back into bed. Of course, saving the world must still be their priority no matter how much they want one another, and Macy must decide if she can trust Dante again after all these years. They ended their relationship based on a pretty big misunderstanding. Dante will have to be totally honest with Macy to keep them on the path to reconciliation.

I really loved Dare Me. It moved really fast and was full of smart characters. Dante and Macy are good together as agents and as a couple. Would love to see more stories from some of the secondary characters in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars A liar betrayed... August 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
What happens when two professional liars work together and fall in love? What happens when one discovers they've been betrayed? What happens when the betrayer returns many years later?

Macy is a brilliant private-sector spy and code finder. After being betrayed by her lover when she was an eager and enthusiastic operative of a secretive division within the CIA, she decides to rebuild her professional reputation by joining the private-sector. She has become the right hand to the organization's leader.

Dante betrayed Macy by taking credit for her work. She left the Agency because of him and his career path changed. He became the leader of his division. A life threatening experience leads him to reevaluate his life.

Macy is forced to accept a carefully orchestrated manipulation. Dante holds all the cards in her assignment, and he is aiming to win.

These two sizzle and spark right from the beginning. Dante is fighting to repair the damage he did years ago, but to do so he needs to break through defenses that were hard fought in building. Macy is determined to keep those walls in place. She has not forgotten and is nowhere close to forgiving Dante.

Dare Me is a great read for a Short Story/Novella. It has surprisingly good character development for such a quick read. Not surprisingly, I was left wanting more details. More information. More background. I wanted to know more about this couple and their history. I felt like I knew them, but I still wanted more. I even wanted to know more about the other agents in both organizations.

There were a few moments in the plot and story-line that were less detailed than I would have liked. In my opinion, Dante's life changing experience could be detailed a bit more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable August 21, 2012
By Deb
Format:Kindle Edition
Very enjoyable novella. Loved that it had a strong female character. I felt the story moved along at a great pace and just enough "sexy" to keep it interesting. Some novella's I've read in the past had too much sex not enough story, this was not the case in Ms. Leto's Dare Me. It was wonderful balanced.
