Flirting with Disaster by Victoria Dahl
(HQN Books, 2015, 384 pages)
Victoria Dahl is definitely one of my favorite contemporary romance authors (when I’m looking for a romance I typically turn to her work). I needed a “light” read and I grabbed Flirting with Disaster from the library – it didn’t disappoint.
Isabelle lives in a pretty secluded area of Wyoming. She picked a secluded spot for a reason; she’s effectively been on the run for over a decade having assumed a new identity and keeping a low profile. Her circumstances understandably have kept her from getting too close to too many people, but when Tom, a hot U.S. marshal, comes knocking at her door she finds herself wanting to run while simultaneously being drawn to him.
Tom seems to know that Isabelle has something she’s trying to hide and he’s determined to figure out what it is. As he tries to get her to open up he can’t deny the spark of attraction. Soon they’re both more deeply involved with one another than they’d planned to be and it’s inevitable that one of them will find out what the other has been hiding…
If you’re looking for a good romance novel that has an entertaining story line AND steam, Dahl is definitely an author you should check out.
