Georgianna was the daughter of Imogene, the only woman whose beauty could rival her own, the woman who dared to love the fearless pirate renowned as "the best blade in the Caribbean."

She was Fate's plaything, scorned when people thought her only a bondswoman's niece, courted as if she were a princess when Fortune made her a potential heiress. Then hounded into headlong f

I read recently that author Valerie Sherwood wrote her chunky, bodice ripping romances in bursts of inspired creativity. And, it shows. Sherwood propels the reader through a swashbuckling seventeenth century soap opera. There’s little room for logic, all manner of complicated, convoluted coincidences and loads of last minute plot twists. All of it, even a cliched Cinderella sub-plot, works wonderfully well.

"Rash Reckless Love," the second in Sherwood's "Love" quartet, divides its attention between Imogene settling into marriage with her buccaneer Van Ryker in 1660s Tortuga and fast-forwarding to 1671 to begin the story of her long-lost daughter Georgiana, being raised unknowing of her heritage on Bermuda. The section on Imogene, although suspenseful and well-done, is basically a self-contained novella. The second part, longer, advances the story, albeit with a very, very quickly arranged conclusio ...more

I really enjoyed reading Rash Reckless Love again, I've read this several times before I ever started using Goodreads, I first got a copy from one of my aunts and having read about Anne Bonny, in Sea Star I was already familiar with Tortuga but reading Rash Reckless Love taught me a lot more about the island and a bit more about history; it was really cool to learn that a buccaneer actually captured the Spanish treasure fleet and that some of the events mentioned in this story were based from ac ...more
