Soon Richard finds that his inconvenient wife is filling a place in his soul that he hadn’t even realized was empty.

A DANGEROUS MAN by Janmarie Anello is another emotionally charged romance filled with suspense and drama from this wonderful writer. Leah was a joy to watch as she grew as a person and I loved watching her find confidence in herself to fight for Richard’s love. Richard was a dark sexy hero and I enjoyed seeing him embrace his feelings and admit how much Leah meant to him. This book was filled with romance, love and the added spice of hidden enemies. I really loved this book and recommend this to everyone who enjoys their historical romances mixed with a touch of intrigue.
