“Lady Be Reckless,” was a title that was certainly in my top ten books to read this year. Sadly, the book did live up to all of my anticipation and yet I still found myself enjoying this story overall. I love the way that the author Megan Frampton pens a story as the romance is always so alive and filled with sparks. As some one who is a romantic I find this to be extremely important and Frampton always delivers. This title wof no exception. I am so happy with the overall romance of both Edward and Olivia and I found both of the characters to be truly delightful.
I think my biggest downfall with this story had to be the plot itself. The plot was basically the first book from the series written with a great deal of similarities that made me think of nothing more then the first story. I think that is why I liked this book so much was because I loved the first book. So I think that is highly important to keep in mind when reading this series is that the plots have little difference between the stories minus the characters and a few other details.
Still, this story had everything I wanted out of a book. The ending was perfect, the romance had enough fire to keep me interested from start to finish and just the idea of yet another fun, charming and witty story had me hooked.
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 . . .
