This one is set primarily in New Orleans just about the time of the British blockade, and around the time of Napoleon's escape from Elba. Hero is, as typical of early Feather, a domineering jerk. Heroine is, also as typical, way too easygoing given the treatment she receives. I understood it better in this one than in the last (Beloved Enemy), but still there were times, as in when the guy chased her out of a ballroom and down public streets with a whip because, on a ballroom floor, after he ...more

"Trust you!" she ejaculated scornfully. "I would not trust you any further than I could throw you..." pg. 71

And that's where I had to stop. This form of ejaculating is new to me, I admit, but I'm not really a fan of it.

Reckless Seduction is written in omniscient, I think, as it's the only reason I can think of to head hop to all characters in every scene. That kind of hopping always dizzies me, since I never know whose head I'm in. And once I figure it out, it's usually skipped to someone else.

I started this book because of a challenge. Though I had bought the book beforehand I'm not sure if I would have picked it up otherwise. I mean obviously I intended to read it. But sometime in the near future which could be any time in the next five years.

So I started this. It was a bit strange at first. It took me a moment to get into the flow of the book. Like I wrote on my status I was initially interested because not only did it take place in America but also in Louisiana, which is my homest

I don't even know how I managed to finish this extremely tiresome book. Neither of the main characters have any redeeming qualities. Genevieve is completely self-centered, and Dominick is an emotionless, dominating bully. The "history" parts are sketchy at best...the Battle of New Orleans is described in about 3 sentences, despite what the description on the back cover leads the reader to believe. There are plenty of other far more readable Feather books out there so pick one of those. Don't ...more

Lost respect for Dominic Delacroix when he thought Genevieve Latour was sleeping with men in order to obtain secret information on there spy mission. Genevieve wagered cards with the men and always won and in this way avoided sleeping with the men. However, Dominic did not know this and yet let it go on. While it bothered him he never said anything to Genevieve.

I enjoyed this book, this author is sometimes hit or miss for me. This one was interesting as it had a french side to the Nepolian escape from Elba.
