A Dangerous Kiss-Francis Ray

A Dangerous Kiss

Francis Ray

St. Martin's, June 26 2012, $7.99

ISBN: 9780312536497

Manhattan restaurateur Summer Radcliffe and sports consultant Payton “Sin” Sinclair have known each other for years. However, recently both find themselves secretly attracted to the other; wondering if their feelings are a second order effect of the engagements of their friends C.J. Callahan and Cicely St. John (see With Just One Kiss) and Dianna Harrington with Alex Stewart (see A Seductive Kiss).

Summer decides to take a chance on love while Sin feels schizoid as he wants to risk his heart too but hesitates. She refuses to back away as Summer believes her love is returned. However, Sin has a terrible secret that makes him fearful of any permanent relationship.

The latest Grayson Friends Kiss trilogy is a terrific tale that brings freshness to the trite theme of old friends falling in love (When Harry Met Sally). The key to this strong suspense is the secret that has Sin rejecting love; as Francis Ray shows why she is one of the best contemporary writers by keeping the audience’s attention with a need to keep reading to learn what Sin hides what disturbs him so much. A Dangerous Kiss is a strong romance with a powerful family issue.
