Publisher's summary

A Daring Masquerade...

Nathan Raveneau, son of Andre & Devon (Silver Storm), is known as "The Scapegrace" in Regency London for his rakish exploits and devastating good looks. He is also a sea captain with an estate on Barbados. To gain land near his enemy, Xavier Crowe, Raveneau agrees to act as protector to headstrong Adrienne Beauvisage - and keep her chaste until her 21st birthday.

Adrienne is both outraged and intrigued by the man who calls himself Nathan Essex. She knows little of the threats that lurk at the English castle of eccentric Lady Thomasina Harms... or of the daring that Raveneau, in his guise as Nathan Essex, must employ to keep her out of harm's way.

A Reckless Abduction...As the powerful attraction between them builds, Nathan is forced to abduct an unwilling Adrienne, boldly spiriting her away to his ship. In a rousing adventure that carries them from Regency England across the sea to magical Barbados, Nathan and Adrienne struggle against a compelling and passionate love while caught in a growing web of danger.

Don't miss this enchanting novel that unites the Raveneau and Beauvisage families!

Similar to the first but still good!

What made the experience of listening to His Reckless Bargain: (The Raveneau Novels, Book 3) the most enjoyable?

I haven’t read the book unfortunately and for a while nothing could surpass the first book for me in the rakes and rebels series silver storm but this was wrong of me to think so. This is almost as enjoyable as the first book silver storm. Yes, it is somewhat similar but Ms Wright knows how to bring this story alive with wonderful places and amazing fully developed characters. Captain Nathan Raveneau the handsome arrogant hero is tasked by the beautiful adventurous heroine Adrienne’s father to keep Adrienne chaste until her twenty-first birthday. Can Nathan avoid the attraction he has for Adrienne while also keeping her safe from someone that wants to do her harm?

Who was your favorite character and why?

Secretly it’s the compelling handsome pirate Andre Raveneau that enthralls me in the first book. So in this book his son Nathan Raveneau I couldn’t see him like Andre and feel for him like I did Andre but as the book progressed I ended up liking the story and the characters. Andre even makes an appearance in this book and even though he is much older I still enjoy him. I did like Nathan and Adrienne they are really amazing together. In the end I did end up being charmed by and having a small crush on Nathan too.

What does Emily Beresford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Ms. Emily Beresford has a whimsical tone and quality to her voice making Adrienne easily imaginable. Ms. Beresford also brings some of the emotions easily felt in her voice. I did have a problem trying to imagine Nathan though and wonder if a male narrator would of been a better choice to bring more to the story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did laugh mostly with some of the antics of the characters as opposed to cry to a few times with certain parts of the story. True there are some parts that are truly horrific, scary and sad but mostly the book was just a feel good book.

Any additional comments?

I was gifted this audio book from Ms. Cynthia Wright but I should never have bypassed this book. If I wasn't gifted this book by Ms. Wright I would of eventually gotten it in audio because it really is good! I will also get the ebook to read since I enjoyed the story so much as well.
