Descripción

At sixteen Phoebe Layton had imagined that Gabriel Banner was a brave and valiant knight, a noble-hearted hero born to rescue ladies in distress. Which was why, eight years later, when she desperately needed help to carry out a vital quest she could think of no one more suited to the job than Gabriel.

But when she lures her shining knight to a lonely midnight rendezvous, Phoebe finds herself sparring with a dangerously desirable man who is nothing like the hero of her dreams, and when he sweeps her into a torrid - and blatantly unchivalrous - embrace, she can't help but fear that she's made a dreadful mistake. It's a kiss that will seal Phoebe's fate. For now the exacting Earl of Wylde has a quest of his own: to possess the most intriguing, impulsive, outrageous female he has ever met…even if he has to slay a dragon to do it.

    Reckless
    4 Stars

    The revenge/ secrets tropes have the potential of going seriously wrong. Thankfully, Quick does an admirable job of keeping the angst to a minimum by writing two of the most straightforward characters in Romanclandia.

    Phoebe is a delightful heroine who is incapable of keeping her opinions to herself for even one second and Gabriel's armor might be tarnished, but he is a knight nevertheless.

    The first half of the storyline revolving around Gabriel's history with Phoebe and her family is wonderful and the chemistry between the leads is tangible. The plot does begin to lag during the second half with Phoebe and Gabriel's reactions to the unsurprising appearance of the villain. It is at this point that Phoebe's intelligence and Gabriel's charm vanish for a few chapters.

    Thankfully, everything is ultimately sorted out, but this is an Amanda Quick novel after all, so no big surprise there either.

    Looking forward to continuing with my read through of Quick's backlist.

    The story was too tiresome. Not one of Amanda Quick’s amusing fast moving stories

    More space fillers, I guess. Sometimes my TBR pile makes no sense.

    *swoon*
    Who can resist this one. Gabriel Banner was a young man thinking to be a knight in shinning armour, just like the medieval tales he had in his library, when he helped Meredith Clayton try to escape an arranged marriage. The couple were caught, and Meredith's father ensured that gabriel was made to pay. he manages to vanish to the South Seas and is now back in England again, 8 years later, with a fortune and having come into a title.
    Phoebe is Meredith's younger sister and she's the family misfit - the artistic, dreamy one in a family with a mathematical bent. She also has a headstrong streak and a fancy for the Arthurian legend. And now she's after a knight errant to try and discover what happened in the South Seas to a man she was friends with. Neil is presumed dead & she feels he went to his death trying to seek a fortune so he could marry her (not that she was interested in him that way). She can think of no-one better than Gabriel, who's not exactly keen on the role she's assigned to him. He's a bit older, wiser & more cynical than he was when he helped rescue Meredith and experienced the consequences.
    You know there are going to be fireworks from the first chapter. And despite the trials & tribulations, you do know it's all going to work out in the end.

    If I was forced to pick, I would probably say this one is my favourite Amanda Quick book. There is just something about this story that I really love. Phoebe and Gabriel both share a love of rare medieval books. Phoebe has an unwavering belief in Gabriel's nobility, while Gabriel starts out far more cynical and mercenary. Phoebe, in turn, is not used to having anyone to answer to for her reckless behavior. The settings of London and Gabriel's castle also appeal to me. And unlike many of Quick's books, Phoebe's family are alive and well, and are an important part of the story. Very enjoyable and I highly recommend it.

    another favorite by Quick; perfect combination of romance and danger; both characters drive the book; great humor and family dynamics!
