    This is my second stab at Christy Carlyle s Accidental Heirs series, and while this book is definitely an improvement over the first, I can t say that it was better than ok There s not necessarily anything terrible about the book, but neither is there anything exceptional It s just kind of superficially entertaining, but without any real emotion or surprises.May and Rex are both Americans living in London Both are in search of a marriage partner from the nobility And both have enough money to be [...]

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review One Dangerous Desire by Christy Carlyle is book three in the Accidental Heirs series I have read the other books in this series but I do feel this is a standalone book don t worry if you are jumping around in the series This is the story of Rex Leighton and May Sedgwick Rex once was an poor American who knew May when she was above him in the social status But Rex and May thought to marry and they were going to run away together But May though [...]

    Two ambitious Americans, one an artist and the other a self made man, with a romantic past reuniting in Victorian London should ve been a great premise but in this case at least, it fell way below expectations Between the molasses slow pacing and eye rolling drama involving both leads fathers, I was less than impressed with One Dangerous Desire.Although Christy Carlyle usually manages to create potent intimacy between her couples, I didn t feel any of that magic between Rex and May Perhaps there [...]

    3.5 Stars I was drawn to One Dangerous Desire for several reasons it takes place in the late Victorian period, it features Americans in London, and the hero and heroine are competing against each other to win a bet May Sedgwick, daughter of an American department store baron, came to London for one purpose to find a titled husband But, raised in her father s business world, she also has dreams of running her own business one day A talented artist, May has a passion for interior design, but it s [...]

    My first book by this author, but definitely not my last I really liked Rex and May and their second chance romance It takes place just before the turn of the twentieth century, which was a nice change of pace Rex wanting to electrify the entire hotel he wanted to build was just such a neat detail and totally reminded me of Maggie Smith s Dowager Countess, shielding herself from the abominations her son had recently installed in Downton Abbey, LOL May s a department store heiress like Cora, she [...]

    I was introduced to Christy Carlyle s writing in her first Accidental Heirs novel, One Scandalous Kiss, and have been hooked on her deft, witty storytelling and lovely prose since Both are on full display in her latest novel, and the final book in the Accidental Heirs series, One Dangerous Desire She takes the reunited lovers trope, throws in a winner takes all wager, and adds a dash of danger to create a story full of steamy romance, thrilling intrigue, and a satisfying happily ever after.Rex L [...]

    I received a copy from the author for an honest review This was a bit different from the books I usually read, but I really liked it I was thrown off at first because they are both American, building a hotel and talk of electricity, but once I got into it, it was great.Rex had me from the moment we meet Charlie It showed that he wasn t going to be the typical tough hero even with his background of being raised in an orphanage and living on the streets of New York His past doesn t get in his and [...]

    Each book in this series is better than the one before Rex and May, both Americans, with a past find themselves in London, both wanting to make a match among the peerage, but can t seem to let go of their mutual attraction and the love they once shared which is at war with their individual ambitions They enter into a ridiculous wager posed by a benefactor, the first one betrothed wins his support Trouble is, they are just not that into the people they are courting, and find themselves thrown tog [...]

    One Dangerous Desire, in my opinion could be described as the anti love story Former loves are brought together by a chance at financial gain Christy Carlyle has written characters that are arrogant and ambitious but are also confused and afraid A contradiction Yes That is what makes a good author Someone who is not afraid to push the envelope and create something that is uniquely theirs I loved that May was her own person and was not beyond getting dirty to get what she wanted One Dangerous Des [...]
