Dangerous Attractions is the story of forbidden passions that unfold in steamy Key West when shipwrecked heiress is rescued by a man she'd thought dead, a forbidden local "Conch" boy she befriended as a child, a man who has grown into a wrecker captain working in the 1851 Florida Keys' fascinating wrecking industry. With memories of a deadly Seminole attack--and all of society's strictures--stacked against them, nothing can stop the flame ignited so many years before. To write this book, I extensively researched both the period and the place, using diaries, charts, and other primary research from Key West's own library archives. The result: a unique blend of historical romance and historical fiction that's steeped in tropical flavor. Here's what Booklist had to say about Dangerous Attractions:
After surviving a shipwreck, Genna Whitworth, a Boston heiress fleeing from scandal, is stunned to learn she's been saved by a childhood friend she thought was long dead, a victim of the Seminole raid in which her father died. Eli Blaylock is also surprised to see Genna, the friend he blames for betraying his trust that fateful night. Amid secrets and guilt, Genna and Eli must decide if loyalty is stronger than love, and if sins from the past can be forgiven. The one word that describes this book best is "different." From the unique, culturally diverse setting of the mid-nineteenth-century Florida Keys to the integrated use of past and present, Easton has created a story a breed apart from the typical romance novel. However, it is indeed a romance, one that should interest readers looking for historicals beyond European ballrooms, as well as readers who never thought they'd like to read romance in the first place.
