Dangerous by Sylvia McDaniel--A Review


The Hunt of a Lifetime Becomes a Journey of the Heart

Annabelle McKenzie stays at home and takes care of the farm and the bookkeeping for their family bounty hunting business while her two sisters take all the risks. Except that she’s grown bored and longs for adventure. The chance to show her sisters that she’s just as capable of bringing a man to justice and collecting a bounty as they are. When opportunity bumps into her at the bank, she recklessly follows her prey out of town. Only she soon realizes she’s chosen the wrong man to hunt.

Beau Samuels has a dark secret that goes beyond the price on his head. And now there’s a wanted poster with his face plastered in every small Texas sheriff’s office. As if things couldn’t get worse, now he has a novice in a skirt brandishing a gun and determined to collect his reward. Could he get away from the blonde spitfire with his heart intact?

When Annabelle unlocks the secrets to his heart and reveals the true man behind the wanted poster, can she lay aside her scruples and allow herself to love an outlaw?


What is it about bad boys that pull the heartstrings of fair and unfair maidens alike?   I certainly have no answer for that question, but I can attest to the fact that I rooted whole heartedly for our bad boy outlaw, Beau Samuels in this rolicking western romance, Dangerous by Sylvia McDaniel.

What a great idea for a premise of the story.....bounty hunting sisters.    And what a time in history for women to be seeking justice for their male counterparts.   I loved this storyline, the internal conflict that had both the heroine and the hero warring between their heads and their hearts and the passion that brewed from the get go between them.

The story was definitely character driven and moved rapidly from beginning to end.   I found it refreshing and enjoyable although the romance scenes were a bit explicit for my taste.    But I sure loved how McDaniel created such believable and rounded characters.

I rated this a 4 wink read!   Very enjoyable.
