David Beringer is devoted to his faith, a philanthropist who cares deeply for others and is in love with Isabella. But Lord Bromby wins her heart. If love is blind, Isabella is as blind as they come. She refuses to believe everyone's warnings even Lord Bromby's when he tells her that he is not who she thinks he is.
After their marriage, Isabella learns what her aunt meant when she told her that Lord Bromby was dangerous. Not in the sense that she was in any real physical danger, but her heart and her faith would suffer ill from his troubled and reckless behavior.
Isabella is a lot like us. When she wants something (or someone) she can't have, she is drawn to it. She yearns for it. She'll do just about anything to get him. She will even convince herself that God wants her to have him. And by that time, it's all over but the vows.
Megan Whitson Lee shows us that what we want sometimes collides with God's will and we must decide whether we want what the flesh wants or what God wants for us. Our choices determine how we will spend the rest of our life. While "Dangerous to Know" yearns to be a romance novel, it must settle for becoming a parable of flesh v. spirit.
You might think you'll pick up this book for a few hours of sweet entertainment and indulgence in another world, but you will only be fooling yourself. This book, while entertaining, will show you a view into a world that will teach you about what God desires for you.
If you know a girl of dating age, "Dangerous to Know" makes a perfect small group study or book club selection. Our girls need to understand the difference between a blackguard and an honorable man.

Megan Whitson Lee has crafted a dark and tormented story of love, loss, and in some ways, redemption.
"You ought not to have married me." isn't what a bride expects to hear from her groom just hours after the wedding and yet Lord Gregory Gordon Bromby's declaration proves to be an ominous foreshadowing of things to come. Loosely based on the tortured poet, Lord Byron, and his disastrous marriage to Annabelle Milbanke, this isn't a lighthearted Regency romance by any means. Heavy on gloom and despair, my happily-ever-after-lovin' heart fractured into a million pieces at the conclusion of this read.
Isabella, like all young ladies of the time, is eagerly in search of a husband. She even has a list of qualities she's looking for in a beau -- sharing her faith is right there at the top. Literary sensation Lord Gregory Gordon Bromby is everything not on her list...and yet Isabella is enthralled. This is a sobering look at what happens when we place our worldly desires above the teachings of our faith. For some unfathomable reason, Isabella is infatuated with the wrong man, even though there's a perfectly lovely and infinitely more suitable man eager to pursue her. Honestly, her story gutted me. It was agonizing to follow such a tragic path. She's in for a world of hurt, though her experiences do draw her closer to God. And isn't that the way of all frail humans? It isn't until we need Him most that we truly begin to know Him.
I'm definitely not the target audience for this novel -- fans of dramatic tragedies such as Wuthering Heights will find Dangerous to Know right up their alley.
