Dangerous to Know by Megan Whitson Lee


About the book:

“Don’t look at him, dear. He’s dangerous.”


Isabella Bankmill seeks a husband whose character matches her list of requirements. The man must share her faith, but he must also possess a certain je ne sais quoi. The enigmatical Lord Gregory Gordon Bromby—London’s newest literary sensation—certainly possesses the latter. Despite a deformed foot and alarming views on politics and religion, he attracts the ladies in droves.

Haunted by his past and overwhelmed by his newfound celebrity status, Lord Bromby’s obsession with his own doom leads to reckless behavior. When he is stalked by an obsessive aristocrat seeking an elopement, Bromby’s friends urge him to marry a suitable lady as soon as possible. Intrigued by Isabella’s convictions and hoping to avoid further scandal, Bromby proposes to Isabella.

Isabella also receives an offer of marriage from kind-hearted philanthropist, David Beringer—a man equally devoted to his faith—but she only has eyes for Lord Bromby. Blinded by his talent and good looks, Isabella convinces herself that he’s not as dangerous as everyone claims. But when Bromby’s world violently collides with hers, Isabella must decide once and for all who is lord of her life. God or Bromby?



Let me just say, Lord Gregory Bromby is definitely not my favorite person. He so wants to portray himself and a noble gentleman but he is totally anything but. I found him rude, obnoxious, unfaithful and so very thoughtless, with deception with every way and word. Isabella Bankmill, on the other hand, comes from a strong Christian family, is strong in her faith in God. But Isabella finds herself attracted to Bromby despite what and who he is.

Author Meghan Lee does a great job of creating characters that will pop right off the pages of her books. The situations in this book were so intense that it was difficult to put the book down at times for me. And as the choices Isabella made start to unravel, Ms Lee takes the opportunity to show what can happen with a Christian is married to an unbeliever. As Bromby real self comes to surface, the ugly darkness of their marriage is not what Isabella hopes for, but has to face. I appreciate the biblical truths and promises throughout this book and the way the author weaves this all into the story to make it sound real, instead of something unbelievable. I encourage readers who are looking for a nice clean story to check this one out.
