Review of Danger Wears White by Lynne Connolly

DangerWearsWhite first cover copy

*Disclaimer – I received a review copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

**This review and the book are intended for those 18 and older**

Genre: Historical romance

 

Blurb:

 

Hoping to live down her family’s connections to the traitorous Jacobite cause, Imogen wants nothing more than a quiet life in the country. When she stumbles upon a wounded man, the white cockade in his coat tells her he’s a Jacobite, and a danger to the crown. Yet there’s something about him she can’t resist . . .

In search of a document on behalf of his powerful family, Tony is shot and left for dead. Secreted away to a hidden chamber, he finds himself both a guest and prisoner of a beautiful but mysterious woman. What she wants and who she serves, he cannot know. But what he does understand is the desire burning strongly between them. And that neither of them will be spared until their lust is sated.

When the action moves to London, suddenly it’s Tony who has to act to save Imogen. Forced to become a lady in waiting to Princess Amelia, she is in peril from the Jacobites, who are convinced she is their salvation. Only the strength of Tony and Imogen’s love can save them now.

 

Praise for Danger Wears White:

 

“Full of political intrigue, steamy romance and plenty of twists and turns…a well crafted story that kept me on the edge of my seat until the very last page. If Lynne Connolly isn’t on your auto-buy list, she should be.” ~Sharon Cullen, author of Sebastian’s Lady Spy

 

My Review:

 

Danger Wears White by Lynne Connolly kept me riveted all the way to the end. Political intrigue and fascinating characters made this a novel I had a hard time putting down. Imogen is an independent woman, in a time when that was rare, and she remained independent and with a strong identity throughout the story. Her love for Tony beautifully added to who she was. Tony was as enjoyable as Imogen. Although Tony wanted to protect and take care of Imogen, his love and desire to care for her never felt like he was implying Imogen was incapable of caring for herself. Tony was a genuinely loving man, and it didn’t hurt that he was a badass ex-soldier. Some of the minor characters were also intriguing, such as Julius and Nick, and I hope to read more about them in a future book. The plot was full of court politics, which kept me working to figure out who was good and who was bad. I enjoy being confused about whom to trust in a novel, so this was right up my alley. This was my first Lynne Connolly novel, but it will most certainly not be my last. I loved this book, and I highly recommend reading it.

About Lynne Connolly:

Lynne grew up in a haunted house in Leicester, England, and got used to telling the ghosts to shut up! She has lived a variety of lives, moving from the rock music world to the business world, and then to writing.

She has won awards and written best-selling books, although the writing is always her greatest reward. As Lynne Connolly she writes historical romance, and as L.M. Connolly spicy contemporary and paranormal romance.

 

Reviews are like gold to authors, so I’d really appreciate a short review.

And/ or a rating for this book.
