Publisher's Summary

Set in lush 17th-century Ireland, this passionate tale is part of Jo Beverley's wildly popular Company of Rogues series. Beverley is a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of over 20 historical romances and the winner of five RITA Awards. In this sizzling tale, young Miles Cavanagh becomes the improbable guardian to Felicity Monahan, a wealthy, headstrong heiress who seems set on marrying an unscrupulous cad who clearly only wants to wed Felicity for one reason - and that reason is not love.

Loved the story but the reader drove me nuts

I loved the plot line for this Rogue but I just couldn't get over the narrators voice whenever she was Felicity. I was hoping that as the story continued I would be able to get lost in the words but I would still occasionally find myself irked.

Ltd by weak character development; poor narration

Would you try another book from Jo Beverley and/or Emily Gray?

Will try another book from Beverley, but not from Gray if it contains strong accents and high-pitched womens'/girls' voices for more than a brief appearance.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emily Gray?

Someone who doesn't think a young woman needs to sound this obnoxiously shrill and intellectually obtuse.


Did Dangerous Joy inspire you to do anything?

Screen narration more carefully.


Any additional comments?

Nobody falls in love in a matter of days. Lust, yes, but love takes more time and, thus, greater character development.
Don't write that a young woman is smart and courageous when she acts and speaks as a slightly stupid and always shrill girl.
