Read with Audra Blog Tour: Dangerous to Know by Megan Whitson Lee

About the Book: 

“Don’t look at him, dear. He’s dangerous.”
Isabella Bankmill seeks a husband whose character matches her list of requirements. The man must share her faith, but he must also possess a certain je ne sais quoi. The enigmatical Lord Gregory Gordon Bromby—London’s newest literary sensation—certainly possesses the latter. Despite a deformed foot and alarming views on politics and religion, he attracts the ladies in droves.
Haunted by his past and overwhelmed by his newfound celebrity status, Lord Bromby’s obsession with his own doom leads to reckless behavior. When he is stalked by an obsessive aristocrat seeking an elopement, Bromby’s friends urge him to marry a suitable lady as soon as possible. Intrigued by Isabella’s convictions and hoping to avoid further scandal, Bromby proposes to Isabella.
Isabella also receives an offer of marriage from kind-hearted philanthropist, David Beringer—a man equally devoted to his faith—but she only has eyes for Lord Bromby. Blinded by his talent and good looks, Isabella convinces herself that he’s not as dangerous as everyone claims. But when Bromby’s world violently collides with hers, Isabella must decide once and for all who is lord of her life. God or Bromby?

My Thoughts and Review: 

I have never read any of Megan Whitson Lee's books, so I was very interested in reading a book from a "New to me Author". The synopsis of the book also intrigued me. I was not disappointed. 

The book did start off as a slow read, but picked up around Chapter 4. The characters, Isabella and Lord George Gordon Byron, make the story inviting and turns the book from a slow moving to a "can't put this book down" story. 

I really like that Isabella is seeking a man who is also a believer, like herself. The book intertwines Historcial, Christian beliefs and Romance all in one and for me that is truly awesome. I like all 3 genres, but to have them intertwined in one is AMAZING! 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. The slow going start is what has me holding back from 5 stars. GREAT book!
