Dangerous Beauty by Melissa Koslin.

Book Blurb

Liliana Vela hates the term victim. She’s not a victim, she’s a fighter. Stubborn and strong with a quiet elegance, she’s determined to take back her life after escaping the clutches of human traffickers in her poor Mexican village. But she can’t stay safely over the border in America–unless the man who aided in her rescue is serious about his unconventional proposal to marry her.

Meric Toledan was just stopping at a service station for a bottle of water. Assessing the situation, he steps in to rescue Liliana from traffickers. If he can keep his secrets at bay, his wealth and position afford him many resources to help her. But the mysterious buyer who funded her capture will not sit idly by while his prize is stolen from him.

Melissa Koslin throws you right into the middle of the action in this high-stakes thriller that poses the question: What is the price of freedom?

Danielle’s Review

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.


Dangerous Beauty by Melissa Koslin is an emotional contemporary romantic suspense.

Wow is this a good book! So deep. So moving. To say I loved this story makes it seem like this is a fluffy romance and it is anything but. The depth of emotion is wrung from every page.

If readers have experienced trauma, this may not be the read for you. However I found it is so well written and I felt the author handled a difficult topic very well.

This story made me tear up, root for the characters, and fear that they wouldn’t get the healing and happily ever after I was hoping for them. If you’re looking for an emotional journey, then definitely add this book to your reading list. It’s outstanding!
