Image of Reckless (House of Rohan)

The House of Rohan, Stuart’s powerful, sexually charged series, moves into the next generation. Playing into the fantasy of the “education of an innocent” with its heated love scenes, captive/captor overtones and sensuality, Stuart’s novel borders on erotic. The strong plotline and marvelously crafted characters flesh out a love story that’s a feast for those who prefer lots of heat and depth of plot.

Adrian Alistair Rohan follows in his father’s footsteps as a high-ranking member of the Heavenly Host, partaking in every form of debauchery. But even the most jaded can become bored. Then he spies a “novice.” Prim spinster Charlotte Spenser secretly dreams of Viscount Rohan — so much so that she accompanies her cousin to a party as a “watcher.” Adrian follows Charlotte, keeping her out of trouble. But the opportunity to introduce her to pleasure is too tempting and he leaps at the chance to spend three days locked in a room with her, where he slowly arouses her sensuality. Three days is not enough and with a killer stalking them and pride threatening to tear them apart, it’s not going to be easy to bind them together for a lifetime of love. (MIRA, Sep., 380 pp., $7.99)
