When you Dare, by Lori Foster

Date of Sale : April 26th, 2011

From the Publisher:

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.


status: Read from March 27 to 29, 2011

YES! Lori Foster is BACK! I’ve read a lot of books by this author, most I liked, some I didn’t. The ones I didn’t like (Impetuous, My Man Michael) are kicking up dust to this new series of uber sexy alpha men. Look, Look at the sexy cover! DELICIOUS!

Dare Mcintosh, a mercenary on a mission to rescue his best friends sister from the human traffickers of Mexico; stumbles upon a beaten, dirty and disheveled woman in the same holding shed as Alayni (the sister) His honor won’t allow him to leave her behind, so he rescues her as well. Complicated situation to say the least.
Dare is my kind of Alpha hero. Although He did seem a little too perfect, it worked for the story. He can boss me around in bed anytime!

Drugged and damaged, Molly Alexander comes to in the back of a strange van, with a scorchingly hot man in front of her, scared out of her mind, she struggles and kicks him in the face in an attempt to escape, and thus her introduction to Dare is complete.

Molly lacks self confidence in her appearance, but at least she didn’t fall victim to the Plain Jane gets the Hot Hero “just because” syndrome. Dare falls in love with all of her, especially her guts and brains (oh and the breasts… he’s a breast man LOL)

Molly Alexander is a Romantic Suspense author who has no idea why she was kidnapped.

This is a lighter romantic suspense novel, and was more relationship based than suspense based. Still, it was well written, and the characters were well drawn. I felt that the relationship aspect was done up right, with Dare not pressing Molly into a sexual relationship, and leaving it all up to her to decide when to take it to the next level.

While not extremely complicated in plotting, and I figured out who the villain was about midway through, this was still a good read. Nothing overly new, but good nonetheless.

I can’t wait to read the next one “Trace of Fear”
