"Dangerous Proposal" is the third novel in the Pinnacle of Power series that I have read and reviewed by talented Author Jessica Lauryn and I can guarantee it won't be my last.
Dr. Alec Westwood has a past that he'd just as soon forget. Ten years ago, in his youth, he accepted to do a "hit" on a man. Although, he reneged at the last minute, he has lived in fear that this decision would one day come back to haunt him.
Lena Benson, a beautiful woman running scared from Lucas Ramone and his unscrupulous father, catches his eye at a local bar. They share a brief but intense romantic moment before the paranoia sets in. Lena mistakenly thinks Alec is one of Lucas' henchmen. On the other hand, Alec thinks she is stalking him on behalf of the criminal organization he became a part of so many years ago. He is even more convinced when he spots the pendant hanging from her neck. It has the same insignia used by the gang and this further confirms his suspicion that Lena is in North Conway to do him in based on his past connections. Their paths continue to cross in several ways as they try to gather more information about each other. When there is an unexpected accident at the Day Care where Lena works, you can well imagine her surprise when, none other than Dr. Alec Westwood, is attending to Trista's head wound. He manages to corner her in a secluded corridor...
Suspense, romance, attempted murder, and a touch a witchcraft enhance the plot of this well-written and captivating story. Dangerous Proposition [The Pinnacles of Power] (Bookstrand Publishing Romance) is next on my reading list. Can't wait to read more in this intriguing series!

I'm Not Perfect and It's Okay
Alec is that somewhat sexy mysterious character that adds the element of surprise to the book,Lena is the lady in danger that needs some serious rescuing and her ex is the totally psychotic monster from hell !
The book was so incredible and really had me on edge ,I could not put this one down. The element of no trust between Alex and Lena throughout the book was so very unique and the plot was a truly remarkable one.
You are most likely thinking they fall in love ,he saves her and that is the end of it ..wrong ! I am not wanting to give away the entire book here so I will say this,yes they fall in love and yes he rescues her in more way than one but there is more than a twist here. The book was full of wonderful surprises and the author drew me in and I simply could not let go.
The characters were very uniquely and cleverly written by the author. The scenes were at times so vivid that trying to picture it in my minds eye was no hardship at all.And the fact that every character in the book is somewhat suspect and keeps you guessing was truly a wonderful element !
This is one proposal you will not want to miss !!
A complex and multilayered novel of contemporary romantic suspense, "Dangerous Proposal" is populated by numerous villains and good guys; but like driving on a mountain road in fog, sometimes it's hard to see where you're going, and difficult to know whom to trust. A bad choice can result in years, or a lifetime, of trouble: just ask protagonists Alec and Lena, both of whom put their trust in the wrong people and have lived to regret it. Of course, living may no longer be the option, as some folks just don't like to forgive and forget-and some mistakes are irrevocable.
Set in New Hampshire, "Dangerous Proposal" is unusual in that it's not ascribed to the ordinary big-city, urban fast-moving locales of many suspense novels, but never fear, there's plenty of suspense, plenty of convolutions, plenty of "steam" and I don't mean of the locomotive brand either. Readers who like their mystery and thrills served up hot and wild will enjoy "Dangerous Proposal."
I reviewed an e-book copy provided by the author, Jessica Lauryn, in return for my fair and impartial review.
Lena was running away from a situation she did not ask for or deserve. Ending up in a town because of a small fender bender, she has to stay for a bit while her car gets repaired. Thankfully a woman named Julie helps her out with a place to stay, finding a job, etc. Not wanting to stay long, but not having a choice and finding herself unable to leave. She ends up makes friends, learning about witchcraft and meeting a super sexy, irresistible guy named Alec.
Alec has a past he is not proud of. Living inside his very own bubble of protection and being a cold, cruel and distant individual are the defenses he has up to keep any from getting too close to him. He has avoided getting close to another soul in order to avoid having to reveal the truth about himself. But soon finds from the first day of meeting Lena he's compelled to her, like a moth to a flame. But how can he be with her without her finding out his truth, then running away from him?
Any romance reader will enjoy the surprises revealed, shocks to be had and finally the happily ever after we all crave :)
