Maureen thought her special gift was a curse. Maybe she’s right…

As the one man who accepted her “gift” slid the diamond ring onto her shaky finger, Maureen saw his death flash in her mind an instant before the bullet struck. With blood on her hands and a government research project in the balance, Maureen—Gilly—Gillman does the only smart thing she can. She disappears. If there was one thing Maureen had learned, it was Never Tempt Danger.

Special agent Lucas Danger knows Maureen Gillman better than any other man. Assigned to find Gilly and her military robot prototype, Lucas discovers that his past has caught up with him. When the woman he loves collides with his secretive past, Lucas has to open his mind as well as his heart to save Maureen.

Who will get to her first?

My Thoughts

Never Tempt Danger is a fast paced, wild ride that keeps you on the edge of your seat itching to find out what is going to happen next! Denise has everything you can think of all in one story. Characters of all personalities, different levels of romance, and Boo Coo action!

Special agent Lucas Danger is to say the least HOT! He has his issues like any other person, but he loves Gill to the core. Even after knowing her secrets. The whole issue between the two on why each other thinks their relationship ended was just about to drive me nuts! One person thinks it was for this reason, the other thinks it was for that reason. I just wanted to slap them both and tell them to wake up! But that is life isn’t it? So many misunderstandings in this world cause so may problems. And they could easily be solved if people would just sit down and talk instead of running away. Anyway Lucas is the Man of men, and Denise has done a fantastic job creating his character. He was a complete well rounded character that in my opinion lacked nothing…….except maybe he needs to be real! *wink*

Gilly is a brilliant character! For those that know me, know I’m a really rough and tough judge when it comes to the female characters. For me they are the hardest part of a story to get involved in and really like. But that wasn’t the case with Gilly. I actually really liked and enjoyed her character from the beginning. She’s a very strong independent women who knows how to handle and take care of herself. She has so much love for her family and others, but on the other hand lacks confidence in herself. The talent she possesses, paranormal and brains would both be fantastic to have. I can see how it would be hard to trust your secrets with others, but she needs to learn not to be afraid of herself, or letting others in. But none the less Kudos for her building a life for herself with both talents!

The storyline itself, Denise has done an amazing job. She knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat for sure! This is one of those few books you spend the entire time trying to figure out who the bad guy is and how it is going to end. So many things happen that make you change your mind on who its going to be. I love that about this book. It really does get old after a while being able to guess the ending or the bad guy if it isn’t a “ known” character.

Absolutely well done Denise on an excellent well developed and delivered story! This baby is def. going on my keeper list! Now I can’t wait to go back and read the first book Connect the Dots, and hopefully Denise continues on with this series!
