ARC Review of A Reckless Desire by Isabella Bradford


A wonderful story of two vastly different people from opposite ends of the social ladder who find each other and fall in love.
Lord River FitzRoy is the son of a duke, but not the heir. He has the freedom to see and do as he likes. He is carefree, kind and handsome.
Lucia di Rossi is a servant in the theater where her relatives perform. She is treated like a slave and is practically invisible to the Gentleman who visit her cousin the prima ballerina. Until one night two Gentleman made a wager that River couldn't turn her into an actress that could fool an audience.
Rivers sees only a small girl who blends into the crowd but takes the bet anyway.
He takes her to his country home to prepare her to win the bet, but in the process they become friends and then lovers. Lucia knows that she can only have Rivers for a lover and when they return to London their affair will be over. Rivers is falling in love with Lucia and doesn't know how he will let her go, but he knows that his father wants him marry a society lady and have a son. Both his older brothers have only daughters and his father is worried about the future of the Dukedom.

I really liked these characters, they held nothing back, no secrets and they became truly good friends before they were lovers. A very well written story that was refreshing in that there was no real danger, nobody trying to kill anyone, just a wonderful love story.

I have read the other books in the series and enjoyed them all.

Received an ARC from the publisher for a honest review.
