Dangerous: A Novel | [Amanda Quick]

Dangerous: A Novel

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.

Publisher's Summary

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 more 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.

    Story
    "Not for me."

    Sebastian is an Earl who is bored, so he investigates crimes for fun. A Bow Street Runner brings him crimes to solve. Prudence investigates ghosts for free. She meets Sebastian and wants to participate in his investigative work. She follows him to a bedroom during a party which does not help. Of course they are seen, so they have to become engaged to protect her reputation. Prudence is a Mary Sue character (poorly developed, too perfect and lacking in realism to be interesting). She is a young single lady running around without a chaperone. Some of her actions are silly and stupid.

    There are three or four investigations during the book. The author focused on those instead of developing characters and relationships. There are three sex scenes. There is also a kidnapping and rape scene that is described after the fact. I’m usually ok reading about violence and rape, but this one made me feel sick.

    It doesn’t matter to me if it’s historically accurate or not. But I did not care for Prudence’s overly wordy dialogue. Other characters use the word “ghost.” Prudence calls them “spectral phenomena” to imply her supposedly scientific nature. For example, someone asks her if she’s ever seen a ghost. “For some reason the memory of the presence she thought she had detected in the black chamber at Curling castle flashed into Prudence’s mind. “There was one instance where I believed I might have discovered a genuine example of spectral phenomena” she said slowly. “But I was unable to find any evidence to support my conclusion.” Another example “I believe I may have witnessed some significant evidence of spectral phenomena.”

    Prudence also used the word “my lord” too much. Here’s an example using the word Tom instead of my lord. Are you awake Tom? Would you like some breakfast Tom? What do you want to do today Tom? I saw my sister yesterday Tom.

    Prudence insists Sebastian mend the problems with his relatives. I’ve noticed this author puts family bonds and paranormal in a lot of her writing. They were here.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    Anne Flosnik was very good. She used a variety of voices. He male voices weren’t perfect, but they were better than those by some other female narrators. I like her British accent. It was pleasant to listen to.

    DATA:
    Narrative mode: 3rd person.
    Genre: historical romance with some paranormal.

    OTHER BOOKS:
    I’m not having good luck with Amanda Quick books. I’ve read four and gave them 3 stars or less. However I’ve really enjoyed some Jayne Ann Krentz books (her other name). My favorites of those are All Night Long, Trust Me, Running Hot, Deep Waters, Sizzle and Burn, and Twist of Fate.

    Story
    "A classic Amanda Quick book."

    Amanda Quick's books are all about the headstrong heroine and the dark, brooding hero although this one is a bit overbearing. There is always a mystery and a villain in the background. There is a formula that Amanda Quick uses when writing that is very predictable. What I like about these book is that they are good for a simple read and a quick getaway from everyday life. Narrator is okay, a little on the breathy side.

    "Love this story."

    Another A+ story from Amanda Quick made even more awesome with Anne Flosnik's narration. Historical romance with a twist of mystery and intrigue. Anyone who has enjoyed Amanda's stories will also enjoy this one.

    "Can't go wrong with Amanda Quick"

    All of her heroines are considered on the shelf for the time period and the stories all prove that women are smart and quick thinking. Usually the male of the story is overbearing and butts heads with the star of the book. I love all Amanda Quick novels and wore them out in paperback. Now that I can listen on audible I am really enjoying them again.

    This book is no different, Ms Merryweather is considered on the shelf and Lord Angelstone tries to be overbearing in the relationship. She just goes around him and does as she wishes, but the relationship always works out.
