After a very tense first meeting Gracie realizes that Jack may be able to help her find her sister. I loved Jack's character, he was protective and had a strong presence without being too overbearing or dominant. I liked Gracie's character in the beginning - I thought she was brave hunting for her sister but about half way through, I lost my connection with her because of some choices that she made. I enjoyed the mystery and romance combination. However, I felt the mystery had a big build up and left me a little disappointed with how it ended.
I had theories of what happen to Gracie's sister and the unveiling of the truth was a bit Overall I did enjoy the book. I read through it in less than a day and would read more books by Annie Seaton as I see much potential. Oct 04, Maria rated it it was amazing. Annie Seaton's latest release is a real treat. Romantic suspense at its most suspenseful You don't even want to go into the kitchen and get a cup of coffee for yourself. Gracie, the kindergarten teacher who is looking for her missing sister reminds me of myself when I was a bit younger.
She is so innocent, she'd go anywhere looking for her missing loved one and find herself in a nest of sharks within minut Annie Seaton's latest release is a real treat. She is so innocent, she'd go anywhere looking for her missing loved one and find herself in a nest of sharks within minutes.
I loved her willingness to put herself on the line for those she loved. Jake, the medically retired cop, who accidentally falls for Gracie then spends the rest of the story trying to get her out of trouble. The world of the ocean with it's sense of danger around the corner and the difficulty of finding a missing person - someone could be lost forever within seconds - gave this story a delicious edge and sense of danger.

Jake and Gracie's love story was enjoyable too. How this not-too-experienced young woman captures the heart of this world weary cop makes for an enjoyable read. The story was pretty hot in comparison to the Annie Seaton's usual work, as this is for a hotter line than those for which this author writes. The scenes were certainly up to the mark.
But I have to declare here and now that I love this author's work and I read the book because of the author, not because of the fact that the line is smoking hot. I loved the story and I loved the vividly descriptive language which brought the coast of Australia brilliantly, vividly alive for me. I received an ARC of this book in return for an honest review.
Giving this one the full five stars. Sep 09, Ursula rated it really liked it Shelves: My Review 4 Stars I really enjoyed the setting in this story. I think I need to read more books set in Australia.

Jake chooses to protect her and to keep her hands off her, but she is not as innnocent as she looks and there's too much attraction between them This is a romantic suspense book that I enjoyed a lot. I think that both sides of the plot the romance and the the investigation work together very well. Annie Seaton describes the relationship between Gracie and Jake with a lot of talent; we can see all through the novel how the physical and sentimental aspects are built with a very realistic progression.
At the same time, all the criminal plot aspects related with the activities on the Midas boat are really mysterious and the suspense is kept until the end, with some final twists. The story is set in the Whitsundays, in a really hot Australian summer. I think this is portrayed very well too, and also helps for some really steamy scenes!
If you like a romantic suspense novel with strog-willed characters, criminal mysteries and a sexy yet a little broken hero, you will love Dangerous desire like I did. I'll keep reading books by Annie Seaton! Sep 24, Jennifer Gallagher rated it it was amazing Shelves: Oh My it is so wonderful to see Annie Seaton changing direction into yet another romance genre..

Of all her books I loved this one so much You have to read this book I can pro Oh My it is so wonderful to see Annie Seaton changing direction into yet another romance genre.. You have to read this book I can promise you will not be disappointed Sep 25, Gigi staub rated it really liked it Shelves: Very good story about an "innocent" school teacher who after losing contact with her sister goes looking for her. Gracie is so in over her head when she tries to find information on her missing sister.
I like that Gracie jumps into action, but she was a little crazy after finding drugs and almost being attacked by shady characters not to tell Jake everything she knows. Jake is a protector, and this former police officer jumps into that role in Gracie's life as soon as he finds her snooping on his boat. Both keep secrets from each other that could hurt each other and lead to some distrust on both of their parts. Their intimate scenes are very sexy and you can feel their desire for each other.
The story was at times nail biting like when Gracie is trapped on the yacht with the drugs or running from the bad guys on the island. The intrigue of the story kept me guessing what was going on with Gracie's sister, was she being held? A very good story, that kept me rapt until the very end!

Gracie is full of plans to find Regan When Gracie sneaks onto a boat she thinks is empty t In Dangerous Desire by Annie Seaton, Gracie's sister Regan has been uncharacteristically out of touch and Gracie is worried.
When Gracie sneaks onto a boat she thinks is empty to spy on the yatch her sister might be on, she does not expect to run into anyone! Jake is shocked when the gorgeous woman sneaks onto his boat A former police officer, Jake now works for insurance companies. Soon he could find his latest job becomes more than he expects, especially when Gracie's plans could cause interference. The people Gracie thinks Regan is with are a little scary, shady, and their actions questionable. There is much more going on that Gracie can imagine, and she's going to have to be very careful Jake and Gracie establish some sort of relationship, oh, and parts of it are hot!
As they both seek to find answers, at the same time getting to know each other, danger is lurking closer. Jake and Gracie are really going to need to put their trust in each other to make any of their situation work and find Regan. Will Gracie get some answers? Dangerous Desire was a fast paced, suspenseful romance! Annie will keep you guessing until the end not only about the romance, but about the mystery!
Gracie is a courageous, but somewhat naive woman who I really wanted to shake at times! I felt like she jumped into things without thinking, with no thought to consequences. She has a heart of gold though and loves her sister, and apparently will do anything to find her! After her last 'relationship', Gracie strives to be independent Jake is a natural protector whose past I would have liked a bit more information about. In the here and now in Dangerous Desire though, Gracie is lucky to have found him and not someone else!
Jake finds Gracie's actions frustrating at times, but does not force her to hold back, instead he finds ways to be there for her.
Both Jake and Gracie are strong characters who really deserve happiness. I was intrigued with how their fledgling romance would play out and Annie did not disappoint! With smooth writing that will entrance you, I'd recommend this to any romantic suspense reader!

Finally, thinking Regan needed my help gave me an opportunity to prove myself To prove I was capable of looking after myself and not relying on others all the time. His failed marriage and family history has him avoiding any and all emotional commitments, but he can't control his protective nature.
See a Problem?
My mother threw it back in my face and too off ad I failed miserably in my marriage. Then I had to leave the police force. Since then I haven't had much of a chance to protect anyone. Until this little blonde bombshell drops on my boat and I decide she can't look after herself. This book is filled with danger, suspense, mystery, and lots of sexual tension between Gracie and Jake.
Seaton does a great job developing the story and bringing it to an exciting conclusion, mixing the right amount of danger and intrigue with romance. A great read that keeps you turning the pages to find out what happens next. I received an ARC for an honest review. Sep 22, Sue Ellen Robertson rated it it was amazing. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review! I would do exactly what Gracie James did, she packed up a bag and flew to the last known place that she knew of where her sister was.
I will give her the kindergarten teacher part but when she is thrown into a turn of events in search of her sister I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review! I will have to say there were parts I wanted to reach through the book and shake some sense into her. The author has managed to take a small town girl and give her the courage of a lion with this book, which for anyone that is close to their family would do anything for them.
She meets Jake Alexander by accident when she goes onto his boat while browsing for her sister; but the heat does not stop there.
And manages to catch him taking photos of the same boat where she believes her sister is on, supposedly for insurance purposes. Both of these main characters have had a hard time with trust factors and so it takes a lot for them to work together and figure out what is going on when Gracie sees a picture of her sister on the boat. Why would she stop calling or answering messages? And why is a man Jake taking pictures of the boat every night?
With all the heated moments and questions browsing through her mind she is definitely in for a ride of her life and so are you as a reader. The author did a phenomenal job with the story line and most of the details but with all the adventure, suspense, danger, twists, turns and unanswered questions that Gracie and Jake are working throughout the book to sort everything out they have their hands full I would say especially with the sexual tension that is continuously building up between them.
