“Sassy and fun.” ~Under the Covers
The perfect time to pick up a book by Vicky Dreiling is when you want to read something sweet that will leave you wanting to time travel into another century. WHAT A RECKLESS ROGUE NEEDS was entertaining, in typical Vicky Dreiling fashion.
Another one in her collection of rakes, Colin is not looking to settle down yet. But when his father calls him back home with the news that he will sell his childhood home (and his mother’s burial ground) unless Colin decides to marry a respectable lady, his plans quickly change. His attachment to the house and his only memory of his deceased mother prove to be a stronger force than the thought of not running around London chasing women.
I love stories of “enemies” to lovers and this is a perfect example of that. Sassy and fun. Colin and Angeline have known each other since childhood. They were neighbors growing up and the same age. Their families always thought they should grow up to marry. Except they were always at each other’s throats. Always with a quick remark. Seemed like the most unlikely couple.
But Lady Angeline has a broken engagement behind her now and have changed her views of society and Colin is desperate to keep his family home. While they help each other, the bond of friendship grows and the issues they’ve had are slowly put aside.
Her heroines are always fun and a bit daring and her heroes are always the dashing rakes we want to swoon for. WHAT A RECKLESS ROGUE NEEDS was exactly that all wrapped up in a fun packaging that just got me lost in its pages. Can’t wait for the next Scoundrel to fall.
