This historical romance from Jane Feather opens on a 17th-century battlefield where Sir Daniel Drummond discovers an injured young woman, dressed in a male soldier's clothes, among the bodies of the dead and dying. At risk of peril he decides to take her with him. This sets the stage for the tumultuous relationship to come. Daniel marries the young maiden and their ups and downs mirror the turbulent times of England at civil war.
Fleet Cooper gives a dramatic reading of this adventurous and passionate tale, clearly having fun with the regional dialects and accents. The romance of Reckless Angel will endear you to its hero and heroine, and the intrigue that they are wrapped up in will keep you wanting more.
She turned his life into chaos even as she melted his heart.... The injured "boy" Sir Daniel Drummond rescues from a British battlefield is no boy at all, but a vivacious young enchantress fleeing her tyrannical father. Moved by her plight, herspirit, and her mesmerizing beauty - and his own young daughters' need for a mother - the dashing nobleman impulsively offers towed Henrietta "Harry" Ashby, who promptly throws his life and household into disarray.
Headstrong, impetuous, wildly unconventional, "Harry" knows precious little about wifely duties. But the irrepressible miss understands the importance of unwavering loyalty when danger threatens. And she knows daring ways to set a man's passions aflame - and the sensuous secret to transforming a marriage of convenience into a union of everlasting ecstasy and love.

Make the female lead older! She is 15! Her husband (oh yeah, the author went there) is 29. And I find her ridiculously immature and, well, 15!
Must be honest, did not finish it. Couldn't get past the fact that the female lead is going to be a "step-mom" to her husband's 9 yr old daughter. Ick.
