Recommends it for: fans of LMR who have read "Dangerous Passion".
Way too short. This was the sequel of sorts to arms dealer Drake and artist Grace's story (Dangerous Passion). The story picks up one year later (view spoiler) Drake wants Grace to be able to have ev ...more
This short story is part of the Dangerous series. Memorable characters are Drake and Grace, arms dealer and artist. At the end of their big story, they had begun living on an island, away from his many enemies. They are still in paradise, but paradise is shrinking, the walls closing in. (And after what goes down in this book, the island might occasionally feel like a prison. Too bad, really.)

Christmas is coming. Drake is desperate to plan a special surprise gift for Grace. His gift is a surprise

Reckless Night es la primera novela dentro de la trilogia Dangerous de Lisa Marie Rice y vuelve a tener como protagonistas a Drake y Grace, protagonistas del tercer libro de la serie.
Me hubiera gustado que fuera mas largo ( solo tiene 30 paginas ) ya que Dangerous Passion se me hizo muy corto, aun asi fue una buena lectura, no aporta nada nuevo a la saga, pero si te gusto la historia de Grace y Drake seguro que disfrutaras leyendo esta novela.

3.75 Estrellas!

I am so glad to have an epilogue to Dangerous Passion but I wish it was longer! It was great to see Drake and Grace again too. The ending was a bit abrupt, I wanted more! I hope we get to see Drake with a baby sometime :)

31 pages! Really? This was no more than a long epilogue and I was disappointed in both the length and quality of the story. For me, there was too much repetition of how bad a person Drake was in his past. I got it and didn't feel that needed to be-repeatedly--restated throughout this already too short update.

Enjoyed revisiting the characters and getting a glimpse of the update that had become their lives.

It's so short it could have been just a scene or an epilogue from the previous book.

Score Sheet Summary:

For me, Drake is one of those heroes that I would never ever forget. Lisa Marie Rice has a way of spinning a tale that takes you on this beautiful journey which you never ever want to end. And the Dangerous is a series that is one of her best in my opinion. Dangerous Passion is the 3rd and final book published in the Dangerous series and now we have a beautiful little novell

Favorite Lines: "They had a fabulous sex life. Drake was an attentive, tender lover who took his time in pleasing her. But every once in a while something in him changed and she caught a glimpse of the truly dangerous man he really was. She hadn't tamed him, not one bit. He just chose to show her a tender side he said he'd only discovered with her." (p. 17, egalley)

I am confused as to why this novella was necessary? It seems to be in between the novel and the epilogue since the h is not pregnant, but it really didn't add much to their story since it had such an abrupt ending with no real story or closure. I loved Drake and Grace, but I would not have purchased this if I had read spoilers. Very weird. Thought it would be an addiction to the epilogue or something.

Acá vemos a Drake y Grace en su nueva vida, vemos cómo ha ido evolucionando su relación y como a pesar de las cosas que ambos han tenido que dejar atrás siguen tan enamorados como desde que se conocieron, me hubiera gustado bastante que acá pudiéramos ver cosas resueltas que quedaron inconclusas en el libro de ellos, pero bueno no fue así, pero de todos modos este fue un relato muy bueno

I never read the first book that these characters appeared. This book did not make me want to read their story. If anything, it just made me pity the heroine. I'm becoming a big fan of this author and this one disappointed me.

When an assassin came too close to eliminate Drake in his own high security apartment in New York, the former weapons dealer faked his own death and fled with his wife to a private island, where they live in luxury, but seclusion. He has never known anything but danger and high stakes living, until he met Grace, and he fell in love. Keeping her safe and happy are his only intentions now.
Grace is an artist, and she fell in love with Drake the moment she met him, at gunpoint in an alley where he

The short story is actually an ending to another of Lisa Marie Rice's other books. This couple Manuel Rabat and Victoria had lived another life in Dangerous Passion as Victor Drake and Grace Larsen. In this short story it picks up with Manuel and Victoria on a remote island living in peace away from Drake's past. It is now Christmas time and Manuel wants to give his wife a present, knowing she does not want jewels he is trying his best to think of something to give her.

A short story/novella that continues the story of Drake and Grace begun in "Dangerous Passions" and which is really a beautiful, intense love story. Forget that he's one of the really bad guys, and remember that love often brings about redemption, even for those whose lives have started in the world's garbage cans and now end up on a private island, living "under the radar" in order to have that second chance to know a life free from fear and filled with love and passion. This is a story about t ...more

This was a fun one to read. It let us check in with the characters from Dangerous Passion. For the most part they are doing well, recovering from what their lives were and settling into hiding. Drake wants to give Grace the perfect present, comes up with a trip to do her favorite things. The trip starts out well, but then goes crazy during dinner. Proves you might take the gangster out of commission, but he still keeps his edge.

I really enjoyed this story. It had suspense and was steamy. However, I realized after I read this that there is a full book as to how the story began. Therefore, I felt like I came into the story at the end. It still made sense but it was intriguing enough to make me want to go back and see how it all started out. It also feels like there should be more after this....I will definitely go back for more of this story.

Absolutely loved Grace and Drake. Really had hoped to hear more of the characters from the epilogue though. Maybe Drake pushing this steel plated baby carriage around!? And I thought Jim would have been interesting to hear about.

Anyway, it was nice to revisit the characters. Loved hearing how they were doing. Would love to hear more again?

1.75 stars. Rounding down because it's not a stand alone novella, it's just bonus content for a previous book, padded with info-dumping and stage setting for the Holiday theme.

Oh, yeah: also, the characters were unlikeable and unbelievable. He was too awful (and irredeemable); she was too Perfect. In. Every. Way. (Ew.)

I loved Dangerous Passion but really hated this .. I always thought Grace and Drake were free when they changed identities but reading this really disappoints .. some things may have changed a little but the life they're leading sounds depressing and the last scene with the bomber was ridiculous and serves no purpose.

This story seems to take place after the final chapter of Dangerous Passion and before the prologue. It was pretty good for a short story.

What a let-down! This is ridiculously short. It could easily have been tacked onto the end of the 1st Drake & Grace book.

“She would never tell him and was ashamed to admit it, even to herself, but she’d fallen in love with him the instant she’d seen him. She’d been taken at gunpoint to the alleyway outside a gallery showing her paintings and had seen a powerful man, not tall but immensely broad. He was facing three armed thugs and he hadn’t looked frightened at all.
He’d looked dangerous.
And she’d fallen.”
“They had a fabulous sex life. Drake was an attentive, tender lover who took his time in pleasing her. But every once in a while something in him changed and she caught a glimpse of the truly dangerous man he really was. She hadn’t tamed him, not one bit. He just chose to show her a tender side he said he’d only discovered with her.
But sometimes the tiger in him growled and clawed its way to the surface. And then the sex was incandescent.”
