the-danger-of-desireSweeping in with December snows are two new books that illustrate not only that danger can come in many forms (some quite appealing), but also that what constitutes danger always lies in the eyes of the beholder.

New York Times Bestselling Author Sabrina Jeffries explores “the danger of desire” in her novel of the same name, Book 3 in her Sinful Suitors Series for Simon & Schuster.

when-all-the-girls-have-goneMiss Delia Trevor is intent on rooting out the card cheat responsible for her beloved brother’s death. That has found her dancing her evenings away at high society balls while spending her nights disguised as a young man gambling in London’s gaming halls. All is proceeding according to her plan until Warren Corry, the Marquess of Knightford, recognizes her at one of the games. The marquess sees the folly in Delia’s plan, but can he both protect and desire her?  Only time will tell.

Fresh out in hardcover this December is a dangerous tale of deception by New York Times Bestselling Author Jayne Ann Krentz.  In When All the Girls Have Gone, Krentz explores how far one will go in search of the truth.

When Charlotte Sawyer fails to reach her stepsister, Jocelyn, in the aftermath of a close friend’s death, she assumes her beautiful-but-reckless relative has just gone off the grid like she has so many times before. But then her inquiries reveal that Jocelyn has actually vanished. Sawyer enlists the help of Max Cutler, a struggling private investigator who needs a job as much as she needs to find her stepsister, to track her down. Charlotte and Max confront a shadowy danger as they try to put the pieces of Jocelyn’s past together in hopes of ensuring the missing woman a future.

Have you ever dallied with danger?
