Review: Reckless by Anne Stuart

by Anne Stuart
(House of Rohan # 2)

WOW! The House of Rohan is turning into a favorite series of mine. I couldn't put this book down! The characters and the plot are dark, and it feels like a guilty pleasure to like them.

First there's Adrian Rohan. I want him! Yes, he's the rake, but he's so damn good at it! He's lived a life of excess and debauchery. Always participating in the kinky fest at the Heavenly Host.

Then there's Charlotte Spenser. She's the spinster who doesn't think she's pretty enough to catch a man. And has always been in love with Rohan.

Until one day her friend Lina brings her to a gathering of the Heavenly Host (undercover) so that she can see what the pleasures of the flesh are all about. While roaming the rooms she catches Rohan's eye, and he immediately figures out who she is and decides he will have her. *SWOON*

I want to marry Adrian Francis Rohan.

There's intrigue, betrayal, friendship, and a few murder attempts. But this book is hot! HAWT!!! And the plot works so well for me. The characters are all perfect for each other. Honorable mention for favorite scene has to be THE SLAP. Charlotte shows us she has a spine and won't just fall at Adrian's feet, I loved it. There's a great side story with Lina and Simon. Ohhh my heart broke for Lina and what happened in her past. My only complaint on that front is that we don't get to see as much of their developing romance and it all kind of fell together at the end for them.

And while I'm complaining, here's a minor detail that I wished was explained better at the beginning of the book. Adrian Francis Rohan is the son of Elinor and Francis Rohan (from Ruthless). I really wish this fact would've been a little clearer. But I did enjoy seeing both of them coming back at the end of the book and to hear their son talking about how they had a perfect marriage.
