Award-winning author Melanie Dickerson pens a conclusion to her Regency suspense series.

In A Dangerous Engagement, Felicity Mayson receives an invitation to Lady Blackstone’s country manor, Doverton Hall. She is flattered by the attention of wealthy Oliver Ratley and his marriage proposal. She doesn’t realize the political undercurrents among her aunt’s guests until she meets Government agent Philip McDowell. Philip is undercover as a guest at Lady Blackstone’s party. Lady Blackstone and Ratley are the leaders of a revolutionaries and Felicity is their pawn. Philip convinces Felicity to maintain his cover. Both are risking their lives to uncover the conspiracy before their government is overthrown.

Dickerson is known for her historical detail and rich characters. The plot is typical of a Regency romance, but Dickerson weaves in plot twists and turns. The romance is wholesome, and the faith element is clear but not preachy, making this is a good choice for teen and adult readers. This book is stronger in its suspense than the previous one.

Recommended for young adults and adults who are young at heart. Fans of Georgette Heyer will enjoy this series.
