Quick Review: She Who Dares, Wins by Candace Havens (Harlequin Blaze) (Rating 4 Wine Glasses)

Posted April 20, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 0 Comments


From Goodreads: Well, it certainly wasn’t the assignment detective Katie McClure was expecting. Traveling to London to protect an old scientist who’d been receiving death threats? Too easy.

As it turns out, Dr. Macon Douglas is hot. The kind that makes Katie ponder her own kinds of experiments—namely ones that involve Mac being naked. But the death threats are real…along with the wicked chemistry that seems to sizzle and zap whenever they’re together. Can Katie keep her professional thoughts in mind and keep Mac safe—or will she risk everything and dare to be bare?

Quick Review: This was such a good, quick read that was hot and steamy in all the right parts. It had a great storyline from the very beginning when Macon was pretending not to be himself. Katie was a fantastic female lead that had street smarts, brains, and enough gumption to hold her own against everything that was thrown at her in this book. The “Blaze” between her and Macon was sizzling, did not feel forced (which is sometimes a problem in shorter books), and really had that romantic feel that we all want between two characters. As the story progresses you really get attached to these two, so much so that you don’t want the story to end.

If you like short romances that deliver on all fronts: Smexy, Story, and Coupling then this is a book that I think you will enjoy!
