    One thought on “Reckless Angel ”

    1. The adage that you should not judge a book by its cover was very relevant in the case of Jane Feather's Reckless Angel, a book that I decided to try even though both the cheesy female Fabio book cover and blah title made me cringe. Said cover and title hid a highly entertaining, swashbuckling, never a dull moment, just fun, fun, fun, historical romance very much in the fun-loving tradition of Skye O'Malley, but without any bodice-rippery, or trip to the Harem (though the author flirted with the [...]

    2. I reviewed this novel for Romance Reader At Heart website (romancereaderatheart/)RRAH's THOUGHTS AND PONDERINGS: The only reason I chose to review this novel is the low, and I mean a very, very low score it received from the readers on . I’ve just recently discovered this author and from only a handful of books read so far, that score bothered me.Here is the original 1989 Book Blurb:She turned his life into chaos as she melted his heartSir Daniel Drummond had amazed himself by offering to marr [...]

    3. A wonderful, well-researched historic romance with an age-gap frisson.Reckless Angel deserves a far better blurb than the vague, generically florid one here. It's a surprisingly interesting and moving book set in a very eventful historical era (English Civil War/Roundheads vs Cavaliers).Fifteen-year-old Henrietta "Harry" Drummond is rescued by 29-year-old widower Sir Daniel Drummond. He ends up marrying her partly to save her from her abusive father and being sold in matrimony to some horrible e [...]

    4. Enjoyed the history lesson. I was mildly disturbed by the "normal for the period" age gap between the leads but my modern sensibilities in no way took away from my enjoyment of the story. Especially when I remembered people tended to die by the age of forty in the 1600s. So one had better hop to it early o'clock. Both main characters were well fleshed out and interesting. Henrieta was charming (when she wasn't being annoying and incredibly asinine) and Daniel certainly had the patience of Job. T [...]

    5. Full review/Цялото ревю - Bla bla blaКнигата предимно ме отечи, най-вече заради главната героиня, която намерих за изключително досадна. Сър Даниел не беше зле, което още повече подсилваше чувството ми за съжаление към него, особено след като се ожени. Като история също не можа да ме за [...]

    6. This is one of the more "unconventional" historical ones where a lady masquerades as boy. Although honestly, weren't there more women that did this? I find it hard to believe an entire society is filled with women all following the party line. Then again with them completely financially dependent on a man with no way to support themselves w/o selling their body, I should be more understanding.In this one, "Henry" is cute and it's easy to see why the hero falls for her and saves her. Sweet uncomp [...]

    7. 15 yr old Henrietta Ashby ran away from her abusive father and stepmother following her neighbor and friend, Will Osbert, into a battle. She was found wounded and unconscious on the battlefield by Daniel Drummond and Tom. They carried her off the field and took her to the nearest cottage they could find. The woman their cared for Henrietta, who was called Harry, until Will arrived and told them all her true name. Harry had thought Will dead. They left the woman's house and headed to London. Dani [...]

    8. It was suggested to me when I first search on book based on certain theme. I find it surprisingly freshing although not really giving me wow effect but I enjoy it immensely :) I love how strong-headed the heroine is and how kind-hearted, compromising, considerate the hero is. And I love the children characters in it. Overall it's a good book although it could be better.

    9. Couldn't finish it. This girl is more stupid than reckless. Too uncomfortably painful to read the escapades and since there were so many disasters, it started to seem pretty artificial. If I were the hero, I'd have strangled her after too long.

    10. Nicely written story full of adventure. The heroine, young Henrietta Ashby, AKA, "Harry", is found wounded on a battlefield by the handsome Sir Daniel Drummond. He nurses her back to health and with all good intentions escorts her back to London and her father, all-be-it against her will. He soon after understands the terrible treatment she has suffered at the hands of this father and heroically comes to her rescue with an offer of marriage. She is nothing like his deceased first wife in manners [...]

    11. English Civil War tale of adventure and sweet love. A true Feather romance with a well-researched historical background. From the 80s, I read the book when it came out again in the mid-90s. Modern romance readers typically do not like the age difference between the hero and the heroine. A word on this: folks have made the valid point that society in the seventeenth century would not have looked in askance at a fifteen-year-old wedding a much older man. Readers as late as the 90s did not look in [...]

    12. Henrietta Ashby, known to her friends as“Harry”, dresses as a boy and joins a battle to escape her abusive father. On the battlefield she’s rescued by Sir Daniel Drummond who then feels responsible for taking her home. Escorting her to safety proves more hazardous than the war, however, as she works her charms on him. The only way he figures to save her is to marry her. Henrietta accepts, liking her champion and hoping she can live up to his expectations. But can she shed her impulsive nat [...]

    13. This one is a little tame, to be honest. The man is so confident and easy going that he fails to be an arse, which makes him imminently likeable, but also keeps the fireworks from happening on any grand scale. That said, the story happens during the English Civil War and Parliament's/Cromwell's ruthless regime, so there's some interesting history going on in the background. And the heroine's complete inability to observe social proprieties keep things from being too easy. In all, a good early bo [...]

    14. Overall I enjoyed this book. It was more focused on the historical time period, which was pretty fascinating, and the interpersonal relationships, which progressed in a satisfying way, than the bedroom, which made me like the book more. An entertaining read, but not the best I've read.

    15. I really tried to finish this, but only got half way. I could not get past the age of the main character in this Commonwealth themed romance. She was just too young, it made me feel uncomfortable even though i knew that's how old girls were when they got married back then.
