Dangerous Beauty by Melissa Koslin

Romantic Suspense

What is the price of freedom?

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. But she can't stay safely 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. Instead, he becomes the key to Liliana's rescue. If he can keep his secrets hidden, 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.

My Thoughts

If I had to describe this book with one word it would be riveting. From the opening lines I found myself completely engrossed in the story. We, the readers, join Liliana in her desperate flight for freedom from her traffickers. I believe I held my breath through most of the first chapter. To say that those first few pages were intense is an understatement. 

Entering into the mix is Meric Toledan who is to become Liliana's mysterious rescuer. But who is he and why is he interested in becoming a shield for Liliana against the very dangerous cartel?

Melissa Koslin has written a story that is unfortunately all too real. We see it in the headlines everyday. Dangerous Beauty gives us a look into the underbelly of the scourge of human trafficking. I would be remiss if I didn't add that this could very well be a trigger for some. 

The writing style is fabulous. It harkens back to old gothic novels but is very modern in subject matter. We have a damsel in distress and a mysterious, maybe even dangerous, hero to come to her rescue. If you begin this novel you really need to be prepared to be totally absorbed in the story. I read this in one big gulp.
