I love Wendy Ely's books and this is no exception. Dangerous Flames is full of passion, suspense and Romance. The suspense keeps you on the edge of you seat leaving you dying to find out more.
Dangerous Flames is about Gabrielle, whose father, Enrico, is head of a Mafia family. Enrico had spent Gabrielle' s entire life keeping her away in order to protect her. Gabrielle was strong, caring, loving but almost naive at what being in mafia really consisted of.
Mikolas, whom was the son of Enrico's right hand man, Leon, had been trained from age 12 to be apart of the family. Mikolas was a hit man for the family. Gabrielle and Mikolas were best friends before Gabrielle got sent away. Mikolas had loved Gabrielle for years but Enrico had made it very clear what would happen to anyone involved with his daughter. Mikolas was dangerous but also loyal, protective, strong, determined, supportive and passionate.
When a hit was put on Enrico' s head, Gabrielle' s mother sent her away once again for her own safety. Gabrielle "kidnapped" Mikolas to go with her. They had to work through their issues while facing a troublesome reality. This book was hot and steamy as well as a wonderful romance suspense story. I can't wait to read more by Wendy Ely.
