Curator Shelby Martin’s life is as dry, dull, and dusty as the artifacts with which she works. But when she accepts an adventurous dare posed by her friends, Shelby finds more than one night of unforgettable passion.
No-nonsense Vice cop Josh Nichols has seen his fair share of the seedier side of Baltimore. Drawn to Shelby immediately, Josh can’t resist the attraction he feels for the quirky, yet sexy, woman coming on to him in the bar. And when she bails without leaving her number after a night of hot sex, he’s reeling with desire to see her again.
Neither of them expected to see the other again—or to have their worlds turned upside down when they’re thrown together as a result of a crime at Shelby’s museum. Can two people from completely different worlds look beyond suspicion and build a relationship from one night of unprecedented passion? Or will those differences pull them apart…especially when there’s someone else who wants nothing more than to see Shelby fail?
Review by Christine:
|Dangerous Passion is a sexy, feisty, romantic mystery centered around the theft of museum artifacts. Shelby Martin plays by the rules until one night out with friends she’s given a challenge she can’t resist. Josh Nichols, cop with Baltimore PD, didn’t think he’d see the beautiful woman he picked up at a bar after that one night even though he wanted too. Assigned to a case he did want Josh runs right into Shelby and the heat they felt that one night can’t be damped. With so many forces against them can these opposites attract?
I do have to say when I read the blurb for this novel I thought it might be a bit darker but happily found it wasn’t, not that I wouldn’t love to see Lisa try her hand at a dark romance. It’s a sexy who did it mystery with interesting characters you can’t and don’t want to stop reading about. I devoured the story in a day and loved every chapter. Josh & Shelby are both insecure but perfect together throughout. Oh can we talk about the cover? Oh my… Thinking of BT as Josh while reading this only heightened my enjoyment of the story. 5 Stars for Dangerous Passion by Lisa B. Kamps
