Dangerous does follow it, so no one will see me complaining here I loved the charming and sarcastic hero Sebastian and the funny and indomitable heroine Prue Their quick banter had me laughing from the start, and it didn t take long for Sebastian to realize that he was never going to win an argument with Prue Not because he wasn t smart or witty enough but because he just wanted to make her happy Too melodramatic Perhaps, but it only made me love him.Sebastian and Prue s relationship went kind of smoothly from the start and all the way through the end There wasn t really any big bumps on their road to the HEA once they got together, there was no doubt on This gothic lite story starts with Miss Prudence Merryweather paying a visit to the Earl of Angelstone, Sebastian Fleetwood, at his

Angel which he may collect at anytime, but it doesn t have her to worried that is until he kisses her The Earl of Angelstone, Sebastian Fleetwood finds the amateur ghost hunter Ms.Merryweather fascinating and very unusual from the women o Sebastian and Prudence are a funny couple It was quintessential Amanda Quick.Sebastian is a super confident, cool, and enigmatic hero He is always in control and is drawn to the quirky Prudence from the beginning Prudence is an odd duck, quick to defend those important to her, and always fascinated by a mystery.While some of the dialogue was a little awkward and Prudence could be tiresome, it was still somehow, fun I think what was refreshing about the story was that most of the conflict was Sebastian and Prudence are a funny couple It was

about the story was that most of the conflict was external Sebastian and Prudence are a team from the beginning They both love a good mystery, have excellent physical chemistry, and value the insights of each other It was the team aspect that I loved best about this story.This was a fun story and a mystery that I didn t quite figure out until the end I liked the very mild paranormal element and the adventure I just found Prudence s lectures annoying she meant well, but she came across as a nag when she got on a roll.Overall, a nice comfort story 2.5 starsEh Big disappointment I was hoping this might be just as sweet and fun as Ravished, but unfortunately, too many things didn t work for me I didn t get any sense of much love or affection between Prudence and Sebastian The case they were investigating for most of the book ended up pissing me off in various ways I know this book isn t supposed to be taken too seriously, but the crime committed against a young woman was really horrific and it seemed neither Prue, Sebastian nor the you 2.5 starsEh Big disappointment I was hoping this might be just as sweet and fun as Ravished, but unfortunately, too many things didn t work for me I

supposed to A re read from my youth, this one is I read almost all of Amanda Quick s one word romance novels years ago Formulaic that they are, I seem to recall them with great clarity During this phase, Amanda Quick had a distinct preference for eccentric heroines, often with spectacles paired with cold on the surface heros, often earls who were by nature honorable men I noticed that she had a series of earls as heros She did n At Five And 20, Prudence Merryweather Knew Very Well The Risks A Woman Took By Visiting A Gentleman In The Dead Of Night But Bearding The Notorious Earl Of Angelstone In His Den Was The Only Way To Stop Him From Engaging Her Hot Headed Brother In A Duel And That Was Why She Found Herself Ushered Into Sebastian S Forbidding Presence At Three In The Morning And Thoroughly Kissed Before Dawn.She Was A Country Bred Innocent And An Intriguing Experience For A Man Who Dwelt In The Shadows Than In The Sunshine Yet As Her Boldness Drew Prue Into One Dangerous Episode After Another, Sebastian Found Himself Torn Between A Raging Hunger To Possess Her And A Driving Need To Protect Her And The Reckless Beauty Would Soon Need All The Protection She Could Get. Yes it is flawed but a delightful romp all the same. I didn t love it but I didn t hate it either , the plot was interesting and the characters were different in a good way but when it all came together it didn t click Pru waslike a mother figure than a love interest to Sebastien , I did love her character , she s bossy , intelligent , a little eccentric and very clever but the way she treated Sebastian made her seem like an elder lady not his wife , the way she advised him and the way she treated him in front of others was a little lik I didn t love it but I didn t hate it either , the plot was interesting and the characters were different in a good way but when it all came together it didn t click Pru waslike a mother figure than a love interest to Sebastien , I did love her character , she s bossy , intelligent , a little eccentric and very clever but the way she treated Sebastian made her seem like an elder lady not his wife , the way she advised him and the way she treated him in front of others was a little like a mother putting a leash on her son so he would stop being troublesome , it made me laugh quite a lot but it also kinda of ruined the romance Sebastian was intriguing but he didn t really live up to his reputation of being someone difficult and a little scary , he was too tameable , I would have preferred seeing an intense clash of wills between them rather than complete submission from one party The relationship between Pru and Sebastian was promising at the beginning but then it t Another favorite re read, this one has Prudence and the Earl of Angelstone sharing investigative adventures as the Earl maneuvers Prudence toward marriage One of the things I like best about Jayne Ann Krentz is her male characters, who generally know exactly what they want and how to get it without having a clue as to why they want it, which is so typically male Her female characters, on the other hand, are often headstrong and independent but succumb to their emotions, which gives the male th Another favorite re read, this
