What A Reckless Rogue Needs is the second installment. After reading the first book in the series I was very excited to read Colin and Angeline’s story. I recently discovered this author, and it was her covers of these two books that drew me to her. I was so excited that I was able to receive a ARC of this title. In fact I came close to jumping up and down….and who wouldn’t be especially after discovering the joy of these charming storyteller that pulls you in magically into her love stories.

The story begins with Colin rushing home trying to convince his father to not sell the property that belongs to him. I instantly became charmed with Colin, very tenacious and a fighter. I loved seeing his vulnerability of his deceased mother, it was quite sweet at times. I really enjoyed how he would do anything to have a reminder of her. Now comes Angeline, where my heart just went out to her. We see a sweet woman who only wants what her parents have and what Colin’s parents have. We see how she starts to fall for Colin, But from her past experience, she wonders if her love alone will be enough for the both of them.
