Sophie and Cameron have a past that was not bright and shiny but tarnished and a little less than glowing. They may have held each other in the highest esteem at one point but in the present, not so much. Yet Sophie will never let her feelings for anyone sway her from helping her family when they so desperately need it. Sophie is always one to rise above the rest and shine which is something Cameron has always known and wanted to surround himself with every day.
Therefore, Sophie does the right thing now as she has in the past and that requires Cameron's assistance, which he is ready to provide, for a small price. Having lost her once to a mis-guided reputation Cameron will not let Sophie get away this time as even the secrets he keeps may tear them apart.
Cara Elliott writes what about what she deeply feels that love does conquer all. The story of Sophie and Cameron is one plagued with pit falls and mis-steps but readers hope in the end all will be right in their world which you enjoy them so much.

If you love reading about bad boys, then you’ll love this one. Cameron is a thief that looks like a pirate (with an earring too). He is the last of the Hellhound that’s not taken the plunge or fallen into a parsons trap, but not for long.
Sophie is a vicar’s daughter by birth, and a devoted daughter and sister who would do anything to protect her family and avoid scandal. That’s why she braves the slums and enters the Wolf’s Lair to meet a man that’s endangering her family.
I always loved Cara Elliot’s prose, but once I read the intro into this story, I was hooked. Here is what Cam feels as he hears a familiar voice in the hallway of the hell …
“The voice stirred a myriad of memories… None of them good. Soft and sensuous as summer sunlight, it tickled around his head, a tantalizing whisper, wrapping his brain in a seductive swirl of honeyed heat and gold-kissed sweetness.
Another word floated through the half-open door and suddenly the sensations were like a serpent, trailing a sensuous slither over bare flesh, only to strike with diamond bright fangs.”
With a wonderful character development, fast pace and an intriguing mystery to be solved, this romance packs a well-rounded punch for all of my bookworms that love a second chances love story.

When TOO DANGEROUS TO DESIRE appeared in my mailbox, I viewed it with mix emotions. As Book Three in the Lords of Midnight series, I was eager to read about the third Hellhound, Cameron Daggett. But I also realized it was the end of a series - a series that embraced all that Regency fans love about the era - pageantry, culture, and reformed rogues!
Sophie Lawrance, a minister's daughter, grew up with Cameron Daggett, thought to be the bastard son of the Marquis. But she spurned his offer to elope to Gretna Green because her family needed her. Years later, Sophie literally bumps into a cloaked Cameron in the dark shadows of London's stew. Cameron reveals himself in their second meeting along the Dark Walk of Covent Gardens. They realize they have mutual enemies and pool their resources to save her family once again ... and even save Cameron's soul.
Therein lies the charm of TOO DANGEROUS TO DESIRE - "Safe" Sophie demonstrates that she can contribute to their mission by distracting the guard dog, practicing safe cracking, and flirting with Cameron to get her way. Cameron is tempted by Sophie's untapped passion, but nobility still runs through his blood. As his friends know, he only steals from those who can afford it. But it is Sophie who again steals Cameron's heart.
TOO DANGEROUS TO DESIRE is a Cornucopia for Regency Fans with its "reunited lovers" romance, Robin Hood escapades, cold blooded villains, and guest appearances by characters in the related books. Although TOO DANGEROUS TO DESIRE is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone book.
I received an ARC from Grand Central Publishing for this review.
