Dangerous Proposal by Jessica Lauryn
Alec Westwood was recruited by an organization as a hired assassin. He was 19 at the time and when it came time for his first kill he could not do it. Alec then dedicated his life to saving others by becoming a doctor. Lena Benson was engaged to Lucas Ramone and didn't want to be. She overheard Lucas talking to his father one night and knew she had to get out of there. Lena ends up in North Conway where she has an accident. She meets Alec, who sees an amulet she is wearing that is the symbol of the organization and thinks she is there to lead him into a trap. Lena thinks that Alec is working for Lucas and keeping tabs on her. Everything comes to a head at the costume ball held by Alec's parents. Then both the secrets that Lena and Alec have held since they met are revealed. There are a lot of misconceptions running through this story and each of the main characters try to find a way to deal with each other. Neither one of them can fully trust the other without coming clean about themselves. There are a lot of elements packed into the pages of this book. Things like organized crime and the Ramone family with their greed, sibling rivalry between Alec and his older brother Colin and witchcraft involving Jack who works with Lena at the daycare. All are blended into a tale that just keeps you reading and reading to see what will happen next. Enjoyable fast paced romantic suspense.
