Genres: Historical Romance, Regency Era
The Duke’s five daughters have beauty, breeding, and impeccable reputations. Or at least, they did. Now that two have chosen to follow their hearts, can the others be far behind?
Lady Olivia refuses to repeat her siblings’ scandalous mistakes. Instead, she will marry the lord rejected by her sister and help with his good works. When he resists, Olivia forms another plan: win his lordship’s admiration by helping his illegitimate best friend find a bride. How difficult can it be to transform the rakish Edward Wolcott into a gentleman? To ignore his virile good looks? To not kiss him in a moment of impulsive madness? Apparently, very difficult indeed.
Edward Wolcott promised his ailing father he would marry well, and it appears Lady Olivia wishes to assist him. The sparkling firebrand intends to smooth his way through London’s ballrooms, parlors, and eligible ladies, while all Edward’s thoughts suddenly revolve around bedrooms . . . and Lady Olivia herself. Only a scoundrel would seduce the duke’s most dutiful daughter. And only a truly reckless lady would risk everything to be in his arms . . .
Lady Be Reckless is the second book in her Duke’s Daughters series. It took me a while to read this one, I just wasn’t in the mood for it but this past week I knuckled down and picked it up and I am so glad that I did because I had such a fun time with this book. Which normally I do with this author. I love the wit and charm that was displayed in this story here. We have a story with a heroine that helps match couples. Our hero has been pushed by his ailing father to marry before he dies. So he asks Olivia for help in finding a wife, when secretly he is in love with Olivia and wants her for himself but knowing he isn’t good enough for her since he doesn’t have a title and is a working man but very sucessful.
She made him remember, she thought, who he truly was. An intelligent, thoughful, proud man who apparently did not like being called adorable.
I found this book to be witty and fun and full of charm and the romance that develops between these two was so endearing. I loved seeing another of the sisters fall in love and fight for that love. I really did enjoy that this book had low angst, since I was in the mood for a soft and sweet love story that made me laugh and this book did it for me so wonderfully. Simple a fully satisfying and compelling read that I fell head over heels in love with and I can’t wait for more!!
