    fans will enjoy this excellent character driven historical romance.

    By 1804 a chip off the paternal block, Adrian Alistair Rohan has become an elite member of the Heavenly Host. He enjoys debauchery as he has for ages until recently. Unsure why he feels out of sorts, Adrian increasingly suffers from ennui.

    Innocent six-foot tall Charlotte Spenser wants Viscount Rohan as hers, but knows how futile her chances of getting him are as he would not look at a virgin. Still after her maid Meggie tutors her on "bleedin' arses", accompanying her widow cousin Lina, she attends a party as a "watcher" at the Heavenly Host. Unable to explain why even honestly to himself, Adrian notices and feels compelled to stay near Charlotte, keeping her out of trouble. However, he could not keep her out of trouble with him as the temptation of having her in a myriad of ways proves too great for his vaunted control. The next three days he teaches her all types of sexual pleasures. However, he wants more, but fears his feelings while she always loved him. Meanwhile someone stalks the couple with ill intentions.

    The Wicked House of Rohan (see Ruthless) continues the depraved escapades although the plot has moved forward four decades to follow the next brood of debauchers. The story line is fast-paced as Adrian instructs Charlotte on sensual pleasure, but feels imprisoned by his need for more of her. With a second wonderful warm romance enhancing this fine Regency, fans will enjoy this excellent character driven historical romance.

    Anne Stuart's Reckless - the perfect historical romance

    I liked The Wicked House of Rohan and Ruthless a lot, but in Reckless Anne Stuart achieves a balance that had me transfixed with delight throughout the whole book.

    I enjoyed the story so much that I read it in two sittings, and I got emotionally involved with the characters earlier than in the others books. The love scenes are sizzling. The interaction between Adrian and Charlotte is so well done that at times I felt like a voyeur. The way the characters from Ruthless came into Reckless was perfect. Actually it was nice to see Francis and Elinor again. If there is anything I could say that I didn't like, it's when the secondary romance interrupts the first. I even fastforwarded a few pages to continue reading what really interested me. In Ruthless, the secondary romance was woven in better. All the same, I still cherish Reckless. I wish there was a seven stars rating I could give it. Because I love it

    Fantastic Ending to the Series

    This last book was my favorite. It has the two love stores that you are used to but this time the Rohans are not the pursuers but the pursued.

    Not as good as Ruthless

    Ruthless was the first Anne Stuart book I read, and I loved it. I thought the characters were well drawn, and I mostly enjoyed the banter between them. I also liked the plot a great deal. But Reckless, on the other hand, had very little plot. I found the pages upon pages of "seduction" quite boring, frankly. The protagonist's foil, her cousin, was far more interesting, as was Simon Pagett, the foil for Adrian Rohan. In some ways, the story reminded me of Much Ado About Nothing, another story in which the older couple is more interesting than the younger couple. But I don't think this was the author's intention. I do intend to read the third book, Breathless, so I'll see if she gets back to the formula that worked in Ruthless.
