Hazard by Jo Beverley

You've never met a heroine like Lady Anne Peckworth. The sheltered daughter of a duke, she has always been a perfect lady, even when jilted. Twice. Now, however, she's angry, and she's angry at the single most reckless, most irresponsible, most irresistible man she's ever known...

You've never met a hero like Race de Vere. Far below Anne's station in life, he has invaded her orderly world like a pirate, tempting her to the edge and beyond. He leads her into impropriety, into wickedness, and then into the most dangerous step of all - the adventure that could win or lose her everything in one hazardous night....

I couldn't stop reading this book after I started it the second time. The first time around I read about 25 pages and switched to something else. I thought it started out a little slow and I wasn't sure if I would like this hero. Between that first reading and the second one, I read a few other Jo Beverley books, and knowing how beautifully she develops her characters, I came back to re-read. I am SO GLAD I did. I loved it. I couldn't stop reading it and even switched the light on at 2 am to read a few more chapters. It's remarkable to me how, even when she is adding a sentence of historical information about, for example, the Prince Regent, she can make that piece of information further develop the character who is observing the Prince (or whomever). I just truly haven't read any author who can compare when it comes to drawing the characters. I can't wait to start the next Jo Beverley. The only problem I have with her books is that I can't get anything else done. I spent my entire weekend reading this book!

Most of the Ton would forgive just about anything of the daughter of a Duke. However, much of the aristocracy feels her clubfoot makes Lady Anne Peckworth not quite worth her position in society. Many feel that is why she has been jilted and is obviously slated for a life of spinsterhood.

Race de Vere feels sorry and concerned for Anne when his friend deserted her for another woman. He decides to insure that Anne is okay. However, to his amazement, he finds her not only upbeat, but also quite desirable. As he encourages Anne to live life to the fullest, he falls in love with her, but alas he has no title and is beneath her station. Anne realizes that the third time is the charm as she is finally in love and refuses to allow Race to hide his feelings because this round belongs to her.

Regency romance fans will not HAZARD any doubt on the latest Jo Beverly tale as the author as usual comes through with a marvelous sequel starring one of the more deserving characters in recent romance novels, Anne. Race brings out the best in his beloved with his compassionate caring nature. The story line focuses on the growing love and relationship between these two nice people who merit a lifetime of love together though society dictates otherwise. Fans of a gently warm historical tale focused on romance will gain immense pleasure from Ms. Beverly¿s beautiful book.

I was looking forward to Anne's story but was sadly disappointed. She seemed different than the girl I had formed in my mind from the other books she was mentioned in. In this book she is shallow and even a bit mean spirited. She gets a walking stick to help with the limp and goes to London. Apparently walking sticks are a huge turn-on because she is suddenly very popular, ridiculus!

This story is anything but boring. Having read several of the "Company of Rogues" books, this is one of my favorites. Its not about "love at first site" or even "lust at first site". The relationship starts as a true friendship (and some fun flirtation) between two people from opposite classes. Race de Vere is a likeable,charming,and compassionate hero who also happens to be an accomplished flirt. Lady Ann is a true lady, with an unfortunate foot which only adds to her appeal as a less than perfect heroine. A great read.

I really liked the Company of Rogues series, so I picked this book up as soon as I saw it. However, I found it a real disappointment. There was very little plot. Most of the story revolved around a Duke's daughter's struggle with the idea of loving/marrying outside her social station. (BORING!) There was a weak episode in the story that will link to a future book featuring a character from this book. I hope the new book has more plot than this one did.

I loved this book. Very well written. A great historical romance. A lovely romance without so much lust/sex that a lot of the current historical authors are now writing. Very fresh, lovely and romantic. My first read by this author and definitely not my last. JB writes so well of the historical period. I'm looking forward to reading her Company of Roques books.
