Publisher's Summary

Adrian Alistair Rohan lost his faith, and now, a dedicated member of the depraved Heavenly Host, he loses himself in his only pleasure: the seduction and debauchery of beautiful women. Rich, charming, and devastatingly skilled in the arts of love, he never fails in his conquests… until Charlotte Spenser.

Charlotte is facing a desolate, passionless future, none of which matters to Adrian, who imagines her a toy until better prey arrives. But beneath her drab exterior, Charlotte is a woman as enchanting as she is brilliant, and, lured into Adrian's world, she soon becomes the seducer and he the seduced.

Magic!

The "House of Rohan" series absolutely takes my breath away, leaves me with butterflies in my stomach, and consumes my time and thoughts.

The hero of this story, Adrian, is Francis and Elinor's son . Francis and Elinor's story can be found in the book Ruthless, and although Reckless can be read as a stand alone, Ruthless is a "don't miss" kind of book so be sure to read that one as well.

I love a good story where the tables turn and the seducer becomes the one who is seduced! What begins as lust turns into so much more as Adrian is brought to his knees by Charlotte. I loved the passion in this relationship! Anytime Charlotte and Adrian were in the same room, sparks flew. Whether fighting, conversing, ignoring, or succumbing.... this relationship is passionate.

The secondary romance is so touching and Adrian and Charlotte are so sizzling.

I also have to praise Susan Erickson for her wonderful narration. I love how she consistently and expertly narrates the "In Death" series by JD Robb (another "don't miss" series!), and she does an excellent job with the "House of Rohan" series as well. The combination is absolutely magical!

I liked the hero and the story

This was my first book by this author. I was pleasantly surprised by the narrator. I have heard her Nora books - not in love with that match. The book was good. The villian tiresome. The heroine had flashes of likeablity but I could not get a handle on whether I could root for her or not. I definitely cheered for the hero. The spicy dialogue was grand and the insults were superb. I liked the secondary couple very much and would have liked the book even more if they had more scenes. What a suprise at the end too. Caught me with my mouth hanging open. I recommend this book if a sympathetic well motivated heroine does not matter. There were times I really liked her but others when I could not have cared less. I should not harshly excoriate her character the hero more that makes up for any piddling complaints on my part. A devilish good time.

I love a Rake!


I loved this book. I had no idea what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. It has a devilish sarcastic rake to beautiful for his own good. A heroine devoted to her sister and subjected to endure a cruel, warped mother that has been the ruin of her entire family. Their paths cross and neither will be the same again. It has the usual romantic formula but the characters are so well developed and the dialogue is so witty that it immediately grabbed me. I love Rohan and am already started on the next book. A guilty pleasure and I plan on savoring the entire series.

A Game Of Cat and Mouse

I really enjoyed this second book in the House of Rohan series. The characters are likeable, the story is fun and the narration was brilliant. I enjoyed the witty banter and how Charlotte and Adrian always tried to gain advantage over the other.
Some of the story is a little too much like the first book, but I enjoyed it regardless.
Good listen and worth a credit.

Different for sure!

If you are looking for a book that is different, a little "out there" this is your book. I enjoyed most of it. Some was just a little much for my taste. Intimate scenes are on the dark side I guess.

So Repetitive

He's a libertine. I love him. I hate him. He's beautiful and I'm a troll. I love him. He's got beautiful mistresses, I hate him. Touch me. Stop touching me. Blah blah blah.

Good but not great

Loved the hero, liked the heroine. Very annoying villain. The plot wasn’t very inventive - I thought breathless was much better.

A Nice Scandalous Listen

The secondary love story in this book is my favorite of the four books, and I wish they had gotten even more attention and development. Of the series, I would probably be most excited to re-listen to the first and second books. The main character is pretty immature, but he does eventually come around and I was able to route for the main and especially the secondary couples. There are some provocative, interesting, exciting, and rather touching scenes. This book, as well as all in the series, flirts with that fantasy of being somewhat dominated by an alpha male, but manages not to go overboard. I recommend this one!
