The tougher they are, the harder they fall…
Professional mercenary Dare Macintosh lives by one hard and fast rule: business should never be personal. If a cause appeals to him and the price is right, he'll take the mission he's offered. But then the lovely Molly Alexander asks him to help her track down the men who'd had her kidnapped—and for the first time, Dare's tempted to combine work with pleasure.
Fiercely independent, Molly vows to trust no one until she's uncovered the truth. Could the enemy be her powerful, estranged father? The ex-fiancé who still holds a grudge? Or the not-so-shy fan of her bestselling novels? As the danger heats up around them, the only anchor Molly has is Dare himself. But what she feels for him just might be the most frightening thing of all…

When his best friend’s sister is kidnapped, he goes in to rescue her, and finds another woman, one who has suffered worse, Molly Alexander. Molly is a writer and very accomplished, she has had to make her own way and loves her independent life. But when she is kidnapped and taken to Mexico, she knows that after she is rescued, that her life is still in danger, because it wasn’t any random kidnapping, she was the only woman taken on purpose. Then strolls in Dare into her life, her protector and she offers him a proposition, to help her find who is responsible, and she will pay him a huge amount of cash in return. Dare is a man of honor, and even though he agrees, he starts to feel something more for Molly, and the last thing he plans on doing is taking her money, he just won’t tell her. As the danger surrounding Molly closes in, the bond between them grows even stronger, and what Molly is starting to feel for Dare may be even more dangerous than her unknown enemy who is stalking her.
When You Dare is the first in this romantic suspense series by Lori Foster. Now I recently fell in love with this author. After a wonderful recommendation from a friend blogger, I decided to take a chance on her. Now that I have, I am more than thrilled I have taken this chance, and been able to try her out. This is the second book that I have had the opportunity to read from this author, and all I can say is that there is more books that I plan on reading from her. I just love the storyteller’s ability to create a story of danger and suspense and a romance to blow me away!!
The story begins with some intense moments, and my heart just went out to Molly. In the beginning, you see her as a woman who is suffering the after effects of being abused, thin as a bone and almost barely alive. She has a fighters spirit, but it has been beaten away. You see how she begins to heal in the story, and you just battle with her as you see her struggle and persevere. I love how she just fights her way through, and no one is going to keep her down for long. Dare…well he is just simply wonderful. Tough around the edges, isn’t afraid to fight, built to kill if necessary, and he is one gorgeous male. I loved every inch of him. He is so great with Molly, and the connection that they have is pretty steamy, but I loved how Foster has a way of making a romance hot but still have a lot of focus on the emotional side to the relationship–she really balanced the plot and story line well with building of the characters. She has a very unique way about her writing, and I just couldn’t get enough of her.
Overall a winner of a romance. A story with a fast paced plot, deep entrenched characters, emotion riveting on every page, and a love story to die for!! THRILLING TILL THE END!!
