Flirting With Danger – Suzanne Enoch



I need to start out by saying that I read ALL of Suzanne Enoch’s books during my historical romance years, approximately 10 years ago. And while reading her historicals I fell in love with her contemporary series featuring Samantha Jellicoe and Richard Addison.

Last week I found out that she is writing more books about Sam and Rick. And I think I must have squealed a little, when I saw the new release on NetGalley. I still remember when I wrote her an email – maybe 7 years ago, asking the author if she intended to write more Samantha Jellicoe. At that time she had no immediate plans to do so, which of course was a bummer. But now knowing she has a new novel coming out mid August, I had to reread the series, there was just no getting around it. It’s been too long and I wanted to know if I still loved them as much as I did the first time around.

And the answer is YES!!!!!

I love them!!!

I love how the couple met, and I love the way they are together.

This series has everything I love about a great contemporary series. A strong and sassy heroine. A rich alpha male who has trouble keeping his fingers and thoughts to himself. And even though they both struggle with their attraction, not only because they come from such different backgrounds but also because the timing couldn’t be more inconvenient, they make it work. I applaud the author for not making it easy on Sam and Richard. Their struggle felt genuine and necessary. It’s not easy to go legit, and the past is the past, it can’t just be swept under the rug willy-nilly.

Besides the wonderful plot, I’m laughing as much as I did the first time. The dialogues are as snappy as I remember, and the sexual attraction is just right. Wit and charm are plentiful and make this novel an easy and enjoyable read.

Throughout the entire book the tension was high, and there were enough twists and turns that kept me guessing and flipping pages, again after so many years. The author is seasoned, and knows how to write an excellent romantic suspense novel. Her characters were wonderfully fleshed out, with backstories that engaged and supporting characters that enriched the storyline.

I’m incredibly excited to read this series again, it features a couple that is easily one of the author’s best.

Flirting With Danger – Suzanne Enoch


Samantha Jellicoe is a thief and proud of it. Raised to appreciate the finer things in life, Sam has no trouble divesting the wealthy of their treasures. This all changed, however, the night she attempts to steal a valuable item from a Palm Beach estate. Before she knew what hit her, a bomb goes off, a guard is killed, and Sam ends up saving millionaire Richard Addison. She’s a good thief and will own up to her jobs, but if anyone thinks to tie her to murder, they better think again.

On any other night, having a one hundred plus pounds of female fling herself at you is a good thing. But on this particular night, Richard Addison is mad as hell. Not only did he just have his gallery blown up-with him about to enter it-but the woman who rescued him didn’t stick around to offer any explanations. When the dust settles, Rick knows the only person with answers to his questions is the mystery woman. And if she thinks she can hide from him, she better think again.

A lifelong lover of books, Suzanne Enoch has been writing them since she learned to read. She is the author of two well-received traditional Regencies, 24 and counting England-set Historical Romances, four contemporary Romantic Suspense novels, and a growing number of Scottish Highlands Historical Romances including the October 2016 release of HERO IN THE HIGHLANDS (Book One in the No Ordinary Hero trilogy).

A native and current resident of Southern California, Suzanne lives with a green parakeet named Kermit, some very chirpy finches, and a small army of Star Wars figures (including a life-size Yoda). Her books regularly appear on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists, and when she’s not busily working on her next book or staging fights with action figures, she likes to read, play video games, and go to the movies with her large and supportive village.
