In Dangerous to Know-the first in a red-hot brand-new romance series-Dawn Ryder takes readers into a world of dangerous secrets and forbidden passion.

A bad-boy member of an elite Special Ops team, Mercer has never been assigned an undercover mission he couldn't complete. But when his latest job requires him to gain the trust-and get into the bed-of his newest target, the sexy, fiery Colonel's daughter, he has a whole new challenge ahead of him. All evidence points to her being a traitor to the country he's sworn to protect, but the crackling desire between them is too strong a feeling to ignore.


Zoe has always kept her secrets close to the vest. The only woman in a decorated military family, she's been taught that to let someone close is to flirt with disaster. But when the dangerously handsome, alpha-strong Mercer comes blazing into her life full-speed, it's all Zoe can do to resist his wicked seduction. As danger circles closer, Zoe must decide if she can trust him to protect her-but there's no way he could be bad when he makes her feel this good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3.75 stars--suspense, mystery, romance and love 3.75 stars----- DANGEROUS TO KNOW is the first installment in Dawn Ryder’s adult, contemporary UNBROKEN HEROES erotic, romance, military suspense series focusing on an elite Special Ops team. This is Special Agent Mercer St. Clair, and Zoe Magnus’s story line. Told from several third person perspectives DANGEROUS TO KNOW finds our heroine Zoe as the number one suspect in a military investigation looking for a traitor in the American military. While her brother and father have been stationed in the Middle East, Zoe finds herself front and center in an investigation where she is the mark-the target-of Special Agent Mercer St. Clair and his Special Ops team. When clues begin to surface pointing the finger at the Magnus family, Zoe will become Mercer’s next assignment-get her into bed and uncover the secrets she may be trying to conceal. DANGEROUS TO KNOW finds Zoe and Mercer on the run; in disguise; on the back of dirt bikes when they are targeted by an unknown sniper. The relationship between Zoe and Mercer begins as a job-an assignment that finds Mercer falling in love with his latest mark. Mercer must seduce Zoe in order to set up a secret operation that will reveal whether our heroine has been selling secrets to the highest bidder. What ensues is Mercer’s seduction of Zoe Magnus, and Zoe’s discovery that the hot, sexy man with whom she is falling in love is using her to get what he wants. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense but saying that I did not feel the chemistry between our leading characters-throughout the story I couldn’t help but think Mercer was still on assignment and Zoe was only a job. DANGEROUS TO KNOW has a large ensemble cast of characters both good and bad; the overriding issues have not been resolved; some of the bad guys are still on the loose, and one of Mercer’s former teammates will be targeted in installment number two-DARE YOU TO RUN. The attack against the team is personal and Vitus Hale is the man to take down. DANGEROUS TO KNOW is a story of suspense, mystery, romance and love. The premise is intriguing, engaging and riveting; the characters are colorful and determined; the romance is sexy and aggressive but lacking in palpable energy. Dawn Ryder has caught my attention with DANGEROUS TO KNOW; I am looking forward to book number two.
