    2. It took me awhile to figure out what time period this book took place in, since it seemed a bizarre amalgamation of past and present. When I finally got it narrowed down to turn of the century (late 1890s), the reading went much smoother, because suddenly it had a setting. Drake has clearly done a lot of research on the time period and the places the characters visit, but when no definitive clues are dropped until the reader is well into the story, it doesn't actually serve to deepen the setting [...]

    3. This was better than the first book in this series. But not by much. And the synopsis on the back is extremerly misleading. Like, it was so bad I kept reading the back just to make sure I hadn't picked up the wrong book on accident (it happens, I have a LOT of mass market paperbacks on my nightstand). I actually liked Hunter, but he was NOTHING like his character in the first book. I understand that over a year characters grow and change but idk. I just didn't enjoy the inconsistencies. I did lo [...]

    4. I wasn't expecting much from this when I first picked it up, honestly thought it would be a light historical romance that had equal odds of being good or bad. To my glee I actually really enjoyed this although I will say they took forever just to get to Egypt and their 'main adventure'. As a result the events of the dig and the ending felt a bit choppy and rushed to me making the pacing my only complaint. However, I loved the concept/characters and will definitely look into the rest of the serie [...]

    5. When Kat Adair sees a man fall over the side of the boat he's on with his friends and sees that they are not jumping in to rescue him she knows that she herself must dive into the water to save this man, For she has Convinced herself that she is in love with the man, Egyptologist David Turnberry, so she feigns amnesia, thus enabling her to linger among the highborn. but Hunter MacDonald, rugged archaeologist, is wise to her little charade. Means he is attracted to Kat he finds a reason for her t [...]

    6. There are times in life that we desire something or someone to the point that logic and loved one's advice is silenced by our obsession. In time, we wake up to the fact that it is useless or hurtful to keep in our life, but even so, it is hurtful to let go a comfortable obsession. I guess that explains why there are so many sociology majors and only two that eventually get a job in the field.I liked this story a lot.We get only strong women in this story, starting with our main character, Miss K [...]

    7. 3 e 1/2 «Quello che dovete fare per venire a capo di questo mistero è eliminare l’impossibile. Ciò che resta, per quanto improbabile, sarà la verità.»Come nel primo della serie, anche in questo secondo ho apprezzato tutta l'ambientazione egiziana (e stavolta nell'ultima parte si va davvero in Egitto! *ç*) e la parte gialla, anche se forse il colpevole non era poi così difficile! ;D La cosa che non mi ha convinto e mi ha fatto levare mezzo punto è stata la parte romance: mentre Hunter [...]

    8. This is such an amazing book!! I bought this new back in 2005 because Ms. Drake is one of my favorite authors, but the summary on the back cover did not entice me very much, so on my to be read shelf it went! Now, as I am slowly making my way through that said shelf, I picked this up again. I can’t believe I have waited so long to read this! This was such a good book! I’m defiantly going to keep it, and probably re-read it again sometime. Sadly, I did not know that this book was a sequel to [...]

    9. It was a little bit better than I expected. I thought it will be more silly and annoying. And I was positively surprise there was no paranormal theme in this story. Don't get me wrong, I like a bit of paranormal but if you read some books by Heather Graham then it becomes a bit predictable.The characters were okay. Hunter describes Kat as young, naive and brave, sometimes even reckless and I think it perfectly depicts her. Again, it surprised me that she wasn't as annoying as I thought she would [...]

    10. the follow up to wicked i liked this better than the first book, in the first book Camille passes over Hunter for Brian Carlyle and gets her happily ever after in the second book Hunter finally gets his happy ending with Kat while they are parading around the deserts of Egypt looking for lost treasure i love that Hunter gets his happy ending i was sad for him to loose out in the first book and i'm glad the story continued i loved the setting at the Egyptian dig looking for lost tombs totally dif [...]

    11. I had a hard time getting into this book. Did not bond with the main character until half way through. The story was quite interesting. Kat is the daughter of an artist who saves the life of a young man who she has been totally infatuated with for ever. Turns out he is not quite the man she had thought. I like the time period of the book, 1890s and it is set in London, then they all go off to Egypt to do a dig. I like the evil would-be stepmother. Added an interesting flavor to the tale.

    12. The follow up to wicked I liked this better than the first book, in the first book Camille passes over Hunter for Brian Carlyle and gets her happily ever after in this second book Hunter finally gets his happy ending with Kat while they are parading around the deserts of Egypt looking for lost treasure I love that Hunter gets his happy ending I was sad for him to loose out in the first book and I'm glad the story continued I loved the setting at the Egyptian dig looking for lost tombs totally di [...]

    13. I enjoyed the dialogue between the MCs and felt the hero, Hunter, was much more likeable in this story than when he was mentioned in the previous novel, 'Wicked.' And while the heroine, Kat, could be stubborn and opinionated, she wasn't overbearing. The mystery also seemed more realistic and there was just enough intrigue to keep me hooked and reading!

    14. Another fanastic book from Shannon Drake. The only thing that threw me, was the heroine learning to read heiroglyphics in an afternoon without an instructor. There were a small miraculous conveniences that appeared in the story, but they did not detract from the wonderful story, plot or romance. Good stuff here, for those who like historical/regency romances with a little bit of spice.

    15. I really had trouble finishing this book. It just didn't hold my attention. It was slow to start, didn't really get going until the second half of the book. The characters were pretty one dimensional. Not particularly believable. Nothing special about this authors writing style. It's very simplistic.

    16. Very entertaining romance, with a decent plot. I am really enjoying this author, her books are a step above the typical romance novel.ey could also be considered historical mysteries as well. This novel has a love triangle somewhat similiar to Scarlett, Rhett and Ashleybut thankfully this one has a happy ending!

    17. I accidentally read this out of order - this is book 2 of the trilogy, and I'm currently reading book 1, _Wicked_. Reckless was a pretty good read. Not my usual fare, but I enjoyed it enough to go on with 1 & 3.

    18. This is not your average romance, i think it has a bit more adventure than average. the love story was cute but i gave it only 4.5 stars mostly b/c nobody names their daughter Kat in that era, and i didnt like how she was exceeeeedingly good at EVERYTHING (swimming, drawing, reading texts, memory)

    19. Late 1800's commoner Kat saves her "beloved from a distance" David and pretends to be engaged to another man to travel to Egypt to be with him. A little mystery added in with a little romance. The mystery is rather predictable (as is the romance).

    20. This again was a nice effort from Shannon Drake. Seemed to have the right amounts of romance and mystery. I don't know if I liked as much as Wicked but h/h weren't a strong enough pair for me. But by themselves they were.

    21. I enjoyed this book much more than the first (Wicked) by Shannon Drake. More adventure and interesting details.And I loved the people involved in the story.

    22. I have not read this book yet, but I will read it this summer. But I will tell you that it's about a woman who saves a man in the ocean.

    23. One of my all time favorite historical romances. Fun story with lots of action and romance. Kat is sassy and fun. Hunter is the perfect handsome hero.
