Emilia Ward is being watched.
And it isn’t just by her mother’s creep of a boyfriend or one of her many employers. Instead, she is certain it something else—someone else. However, in a life with college classes and alcoholic mother to look after, Emilia doesn’t have time to explore her suspicions. She would much rather think about her new job at Iram Manor, and more importantly—its mysterious and alluring owner.
After a lifetime of isolation and trapped in a disfigured body Kasper Zafar thought he knew pain. Confining himself to his work as an architect and the love of his music, he never expects the beautiful Emilia Ward to enter his life. Young and naive, his new housekeeper does not flinch at the sight of him, and is even so bold as to call him her friend.
Determined to teach her in all worldly things, the opposites grow closer and the role of student and teacher interchange. Yet Emilia’s life outside the manor is not a happy one, and when Kasper’s attempt to watch over her fails, both will discover than love may be the most painful thing of all.

Fantastic story that is a four star read! I enjoyed it from the first page because I’m a romantic at heart and was raised on fairytales. And author Amanda Lance starts the intrigue and romance from page one. Endangered Hearts is the modern take on Beauty and The Beast with a bit of Phantom of The Opera thrown in. Sweet and sad, both Emilia and Kasper are victims of society–Emilia is poor white trash and Kasper is hideously deformed. Despite their insecurities, an attraction forms between them. I had to see how this improbable love match would turn out so I read it in one day and it went quickly:) Gold stars for an awesome plot, great characters, and a story that will make the coldest heart melt!
