Image of Dangerous Passion (The Dangerous Trilogy)

Rice's villain becomes the hero in a story that has complex and multilayered characters who are at times
ruthless, noble, strong and vulnerable.
One hopes the few loose ends that aren't resolved means a sequel is in
the works, but the core of the story -- the relationship between Drake and Grace -- shines.

Drake is the most powerful man in the underworld of arms dealing. His name alone strikes fear in the most hardened criminal, and he survives by having no weaknesses, until he comes across a painting and Grace, an artist, that restore his faith in life and love.

When Drake's enemies try to use Grace to take him out, Drake resorts to drastic measures to secure their future. In each other, Grace and Drake discover a dangerous passion that will forever change their lives. (AVON RED, Aug., 320 pp., $13.99)
