About this ebook

"This book is amazing! I was hooked until the end." - Jade West, USA Today Bestselling Author

"An expertly woven tale of dark romance, tragedy, suspense, and humor." - Jude McLean, Author

Every sin comes with a price

I ran away when I was a kid.

Before my family could break me.

Back when I thought I could still be saved.

Now I lie to everyone about who I am.

I lie to myself about the things I’ve done.

My new identity protects me.

But my secrets demand a lonely life.

No man is worth the risk.

Until Chase Hale…

He makes me forget that I'm unwanted.

He makes me forget what I deserve.

He makes me vulnerable.

He makes me weak.

And that’s what makes him Dangerous.

But when he starts making me believe I might be worth saving, that could be the most Dangerous of all.

Because every sin comes with a price, and when my family comes to collect, there will be nothing in this world left to save me.

Warning - Contains dark themes, adult language, and explicit sex. Recommended for 18+ and for those not triggered or offended by the above.

From the Author - My Beautiful Dangerous is a complete stand-alone about one woman’s road to redemption and a love to heal even the most broken soul. It includes family trauma, spicy romance, humor, plot twists, and a strong and sarcastic female lead. I hope you enjoy it. If you do, a hug in the form of a review is always appreciated.

Honest review from a non-reader:Honestly just read this book! Hi! I don't read (often)... I usually get recommended books and while they start okay, I tend to drift away from a book and never look back...that being said this book had my husband asking "what have you done with my wife" as he found me reading when I woke up, before bed, while I was supposed to be getting ready to go out, etc...I would never have suspected this was written by a first-time author! I could go on about how the verbal imagery was CHEF'S KISS! Or how my first 5 adjectives to describe this book would be: STEAMY, WITTY, ADDICTIVE, SMART, and EXCELLENT STORY! Or even how the female lead is STRONG, CLEVER, and SELF-AWARE! Don't even get me started on how the chemistry between our leading lady and man (Chase) was TOO HOT TO HANDLE - both INTELLIGENT and SEXY! The bottom line is I'm not a reader - so don't take my word for it - read it for yourself and see if it makes a reading convert out of you as it did me

Wow! This was an outstanding debut novel that left me breathless. I loved how complex and unpredictable it was. There were multiple layers to the plot with many secrets, threats and dangers. However added to this was great humour plus witty descriptions and dialogue. You could totally feel the tension between them Jasmine and Chase. I enjoyed the push and pull and was rooting for them all the way. I look forward to seeing what this talented author comes up with next. I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review. All opinions expressed are solely my own.

About the author

Hi Tech Heat!

Software analyst by day and author by night.

After reaching her fill of logic and data throughout her work life, Laila desperately needed a creative outlet to express her emotional and whimsical (and possibly a little bit crazy) side. And so… an author was born.

She enjoys writing romance novels filled with suspense, heart, wit, spice, and a plot twist or two. Her heroines are intelligent, strong, sarcastic, and perhaps a bit quirky. They may start off misguided, but they always mean well. Of course, the men are hot as hell and worthy of a steamy sex scene or two (or three, or four...) to showcase their talents.

As someone who devours all genres of books, Laila has a soft spot for love and promises her readers a happily ever after.

​What about her real life? She lives in the desert where it's almost as hot as the men she likes to write about. She loves her dogs, movies, watching hockey, and someday, she aspires to kick her Cheetos addiction.
