3.5 out of 5 stars

Like the second book in the Braddock Black series (Forbidden), this story is intelligently written with characters and dialogue that go beyond the usual love/hate relationship between the hero and heroine.

The hero, Kit Braddock, is a wealthy playboy and adventurer who falls in love with Countess Angela de Grae. The problem? She's married with two children to a sadistic earl. Angela is also one of the most beautiful women in Europe and has had her share of lovers and experience

This was surely an unconventional romance novel. The hero Kit Braddock was younger than the heroine Countess Angela de Grae who was as sexually knowledgeable as her lover. Besides she was married and had two children. And the era was different, too. Mostly romance novels take place in the Regency period or earlier. The story here starts in 1896. I commend Johnson for the historical background information you get including the various contraception methods possible at the time and the divorce ...more

Brazen is my favorite Susan Johnson book. It's classic Susan Johnson - erotic historical romance with extremeley handsome, wealthy & arrogant hero and a beyond beautiful heroine. The author's historical romances tend to follow the same pattern, and as such, after reading half a dozen or so of her books, she fell off my TBR list. But I consider this book her best work. I loved it. I read it ages ago, and still think of it as an amazing book with scorching hot sex scenes and great emotion, and ...more

“Brazen is about the passionate relationship between Countess Angela De Grae and American playboy Kit Braddock.”

“VERY hot read! I like the intense scenes between Angela and Kit but in the end, it really didn’t seem likely that Kit would change his playboy ways. He’d always be special to Angela, and he was good for sex, but he didn’t qualify as being good enough to completely be publicly part of her world. Plus she had some major flaws herself; she was rich; SPOILED; and controlling – which ultim

I read this as a "palate cleanser" between two heavy WWII books...I generally think Susan Johnson's books are a decent escape...but the writing in this one was completely overwrought, it didn't even sound like her usual style. The dialogue was awful, half the time it didn't even make sense. Or in the (made up) words of Baby May, "Me tinked da talky pawts was wedikleeus."

I thought I've found new Judith McNaught so I was beyond myself. Unfortunately, that is impossible. There was too much sex for 500 pages. And when all is about him screwing her vice versa, my interest is back to my fridge.

I adored the first three Braddock-Black books (Blaze, Silver Flame, Forbidden) more. Chronologically this is the last in the series, and still very enjoyable. Kit Braddock falls hard and never really looks back. Characters were a little less developed than prior books and just less depth.

It was very slow and I wish it had more substance like Rosemary Rogers old books. I guess the hunt is still on for a good author who writes like the old days and not this fluff and marshmallow stuff.

One of the few SJ novels that I really like. Besides the hero is red-haired, all too rare in novels. However, be warned that the erotica in this one is pretty heavy, so not for the prudish or young.

And it all began rather serendipitously. Long ago, as they say, in another time, when fast food hadn't reached our area and the only shopping was what the feed mill offered, I was reading a book that annoyed me .

My husband was lying beside me in bed, watching TV. Turning to him, I sort of petulantly said, "How the hell did this book get published?"

"If you think you're so smart," he replied, with
