Dangerous 2.5 starsEh Big disappointment I was hoping this might be just as sweet and fun as Ravished, but unfortunately, too many things didn t work for me I didn t get any sense of much love or affection between Prudence and Sebastian The case they were investigating for most of the book ended up pissing me off in various ways I know this book isn t supposed to be taken too seriously, but the crime committed against a young woman was really horrific and it seemed neither Prue, Sebastian nor the young woman s lover, were properly enraged They all should have demanded either lifetime imprisonment or death for the perpetrators, right off the bat That didn t happen Also, I didn t like how Prue kept demanding that Sebastian be civil or nice to his cousin and Aunt They were awful people and undeserving of his good will She really annoyed me in this.Overall, pretty big failure. 4 Estrellitas Hac a tiempo que un libro no me deleitaba de sta manera ste a o me est dejando mucho que desear en cuanto a elecci n de libros, pero gracias a sta novela no he tirado la toalla Si algo s sobre Amanda Quick es que sus libros son una apuesta segura y nunca decepcionan, puede que todas sus tramas sean similares, pero sus personajes son nicos y sus escenarios inigualables El peligro de la pasi n es una de sus novela antig illas pero ciertamente bien valoradas Nos encontramos en el Londres de la Regencia y tenemos a Prudence, una mujer at pica del campo que ha venido con su hermano a pasar la temporada a Londres invitados por una amiga Cuando digo que Prudence es at pica es que lo es es nica, es inteligente, y ha recibido una buena educaci n a pesar de no provenir de una familia pudiente Sus circunstancias han cambiado gracias a su afici n, se dedica a investigar casos espectrales, o lo que es lo mismo, buscar fantasmas Gracias a su primera incursi n en el mundillo, ahora es conocida en Londres como Do a Original, y aunque su aspecto deja mucho que desear, est en boca de todos.Pero no todo parece ir bien Prudence ha conocido en un baile a lord Angelston, un atractivo conde de or genes dudosos y con una notoria reputaci n Sebastian Fleetwood, lord Angelston se siente intrigado por Do a Original, bajo sus vestidos poco elegantes, su larguirucha figura y sus gafas de solterona, Prue ha conseguido llamar su atenci n, y sta misma har que el joven y atontado hermano de Prue lo rete a un duelo Aqu ser cuando Prue entre en acci n y acuda a Sebastian para impedirlo ser en ste momento cuando la relaci n de ambos empiece a desarrollarse, para disgusto del hermano de Prue y placer de Sebastian.Como en todo libro de Amanda Quick, no tendremos solo el romance de los protagonistas, si no que habr casos para investigar, Prue se dedica a los fen menos espectrales, y a lord Angelston le gusta pasar el tiempo investigando y ayudando para Bow Street Ser en un caso en el que ir n unidas las especialidades de ambos lo que har que se asocien para la resoluci n del mismo.Si algo me ha gustado de la historia de Prue y Sebastian es que l la quiere pr cticamente desde el principio y sin reservas, pese a que f sicamente su aspecto no est a la moda y deje mucho que desear, admito que me encantan los protagonistas que se enamoran de la chica por ser ellas mismas y no s lo por su f sico En cuanto a Prue, podr a decir lo mismo, es inteligente, divertida, resolutiva, y no est muy segura de querer las atenciones de Sebastian no porque no se sienta atra da por l, si no porque a os atr s recibi un cruel rechazo y sabe que s lo se unir a un hombre por amor.Leer ste libro ha sido un acierto, sobre todo por la primera parte de la novela, que me ha enganchado como pocas novelas lo hacen La segunda mitad me ha gustado algo menos, pero porque el romance ha ido decayendo en un segundo plano, mientras que ha ido adquiriendo m s importancia la trama de investigaci n, aunque debo admitirlo, ha estado muy bien llevada, pese a ser algo predecible.Recomiendo ste libro si os gusta la autora, los romances bonitos y sin muchos altercados pero con buenos di logos, y por supuesto si os gusta el misterio en las novelas rom nticas Como he dicho ah arriba, leer a Amanda Quick es sin nimo de calidad en el g nero, ahora mismo un bien preciado en el actual panorama editorial. Out to save her hot headed brother from a duel that could kill him Prudence Merryweather finds herself at the door of the man whom her brother challenged, finally coming to an understanding to spare her brother, Pru ends up making a deal with the Fallen Angel which he may collect at anytime, but it doesn t have her to worried that is until he kisses her The Earl of Angelstone, Sebastian Fleetwood finds the amateur ghost hunter Ms.Merryweather fascinating and very unusual from the women of the ton, he finds the deal between them very amusing and just another way to stay close to her while he goes about his hobby of solving crimes for Bow Street But when Pru finds out about his little hobby they both finds themselves not only in a sham engagement but becoming a team solving their biggest mystery yet As their case starts turning up dead bodies, they delve deeper to find the truth and finding out their a better team as they match wits and passion to solve a long ago crime This was a delightful read, it was fun and quick paced never slowing down keeping you wrapped up between Sebastian s and Pru growing relationship to their case and who dun it Sebastian was a great hero extra points for having a love for cats , always coming across with his bored and sarcastic attitude toward everyone around him but mostly his father s side of the family whom always looked their noses down at him Sebastian hides behind his devil may care mask a deep hurt after the deaths of his family trying to find warmth where he felt a deep cold lay close to his heart When he meets the crazy and delightful Pru his life turns around as he starts to feel love and warmth making him wonder how he went all his life without Pru by his side Pru was smart and clever always wanting to be where the action is, she finds she can truly be herself around Sebastian and tag along on his cases Mucht to his horror As a couple their were really great with their back and forth banter that had you smiling knowing in the end Pru would somehow win no matter what Sebastian did, which was really sweet The case that Pru and Sebastian work on to solve was if you pay attention and are a fan of Clue was a no brainier, but as to why they did it was a big surprise and how the main villain gets his due was awesome touch The only fault I had with the whole book was although the banter was enjoyable, when either Sebastian or Pru didn t get their way going along on cases or whatnot they started to act like child who was deny a piece of candy which seem out of character as both were smart and clever and having to act like a kid because they didn t get what they wanted made me roll my eyes.Overall a fun read with a overlaying murder mystery and two great leads that will have you enjoying the book till the very end 4.5 stars.It should be an easy 5 stars if I didn t want to smack the heroine for a few time.Her quick to defend whoever the target of the Hero s sharp tongue it s very annoying especially when its deserved.Anyway, this one has a good storyline, I wonder if Ms Roberts got inspired from this book to write Brotherhood in Death, you know what I mean if you already read that book.Somehow while the disgusting crime are the same, because of the humor in it, this book feel much lighter than BiD and very enjoyable. This gothic lite story starts with Miss Prudence Merryweather paying a visit to the Earl of Angelstone, Sebastian Fleetwood, at his home way past the hour of acceptability She has come because her absurdly protective brother is determined to avenge her honor which has been rocked by the fact that the Fallen Angel has been seen in her presence The ambiance starts up immediately when we are introduced to Sebastian who has been relaxing in his home in a state of dishabille He eyes Prue up and down like a tasty snack, disbelieving that a gently bred young lady would visit him, alone, at such a late hour This makes her fair game in his eyes and he intends to claim her before the end of the night She has come to demand he apologize to her brother and prevent their dawn appointment She assures his agreement through her clever banter and Sebastian is charmed He agrees to her terms and seals their deal with a kiss, forever changing both their lives in that moment As corny as it sounds, Sebastian and Prudence really do complete each other They are compatible in every way Sebastian looks at Prudence as if she s a very special gift and takes care of her with a gentleness that shocks him She brightens his world with her gentle, caring manner and gives him laughter in his life She s determined to save him from himself and does all she can to make sure he and his family reconcile She even goes so far as to change her country girl style for something sophisticated and urbane, a move that horrifies Sebastian and made me laugh out loud Amanda Quick has created a hard, aloof man in Sebastian Fleetwood and it is very endearing to see his cold spirit thaw around Prudence s natural cheerfulness While the formula Amanda Quick uses is tried and true, it s the wonderful, quirky personalities that will remain with you long after you read this book. Sebastian and Prudence are a funny couple It was quintessential Amanda Quick.Sebastian is a super confident, cool, and enigmatic hero He is always in control and is drawn to the quirky Prudence from the beginning Prudence is an odd duck, quick to defend those important to her, and always fascinated by a mystery.While some of the dialogue was a little awkward and Prudence could be tiresome, it was still somehow, fun I think what was refreshing about the story was that most of the conflict was external Sebastian and Prudence are a team from the beginning They both love a good mystery, have excellent physical chemistry, and value the insights of each other It was the team aspect that I loved best about this story.This was a fun story and a mystery that I didn t quite figure out until the end I liked the very mild paranormal element and the adventure I just found Prudence s lectures annoying she meant well, but she came across as a nag when she got on a roll.Overall, a nice comfort story with a couple that work as a team and a good murder mystery. A re read from my youth, this one is I read almost all of Amanda Quick s one word romance novels years ago Formulaic that they are, I seem to recall them with great clarity During this phase, Amanda Quick had a distinct preference for eccentric heroines, often with spectacles paired with cold on the surface heros, often earls who were by nature honorable men I noticed that she had a series of earls as heros She did not seem to like other ranks much In these stories the heros were always enchanted by how unusual the heroines were The women were usually odd creatures, not society babes, bookish, slightly on the shelf They usually had a strong interest in intellectual pursuits, almost always pathetically unfashionable whereas their husbands always dressed the part, aka devastatingly handsome devil of an earl, and had an eye for fashion This book is the epitome of her style during this time Prudence, the 25 year old spinster who liked to investigate supernatural phenomena and Sebastian, the Earl of Angelstone who seemed cold but of course whose passion could be only ignited by said spinster and whose loneliness could only be chased away by the presence of said spinster.One great thing about Quick is her writing She truly had a way with her stories Even if I am not so crazy about the characters usually the bespectacled heroines , I still find it pleasant to read her books Her heros were controlled men, not necessarily cold or tortured and they were almost always responsible men, despite how Quick wanted to paint them as devils They were quick to offer marriage how convenient , had a strong sense of honor and could oddly, only find love with women who were considered odd by society standard Her heroines, oh aren t they the dears I read a review for one of Quick s stories once which said Amanda Quick s heroines all remind us of a historical version of Amanda Quick herself A woman who was not exactly traditionally beautiful but loved reading and was almost always too smart for their own good They had an odd sense of honor and often expected the heros to do the right thing or they would chastise the men for not acting responsibly They were also strangely level headed to the point where they had no emotional weakness I laughed so hard when I read that I have exactly the same impression there is definitely some author s self compensation kind of thing going on here I found the writing as good as I remember Sebastian is a good hero but since I am not exactly crazy about Prudence, I lost some respect for Sebastian for falling for her Prudence was bossy, damn I rather despise the managing sort of women, no matter how much Sebastian wanted to be managed I for one, have no interest in managing anyone I usually like a level headed heroine but Amanda Quick s heroines often remind me of Maggie Smith in Downten Abbey, whose Dowager Countess of Grantham, Violet Crawley, is the hautiest of the hautiest English gentlewomen almost too level headed and practical that they lose their vulnerability For Violet Crawley, her level headedness comes with age For Amanda Quick s heroines, it just seems absurdly practical and unfortunately un feminine I bought the book for my memories I liked it better when I was younger and I am keeping the book for the old times. Dangerous is the story of Prudence and Sebastian.When Prudence s brother challenges Lord Sebastian Angelwood to a morning duel just for dancing with his sister, Prudence takes it upon herself to travel at midnight and convince Angelwood to refuse the same, by apologizing to her brother.Angelwood agrees, but only if they can partner up He is a detective investigating a series of unsolved mysteries, she is a ghost huntress Things start getting meddled up when one of the haunted location ends up having some murder clues, and both of them decide to work together At the same time, Sebastian decides he wants Prudence as his bride, and manipulates his way into marriage.Now, the book started out great I love me a quirky and weird heroine, and a tortured hero This book fell short of BOTH The heroine interfered in everytthingggg I wanted to be like STAHP woman, mind your own business She inserts herself in every situation, argument et al, and then things went wrong The hero on the other hand was rather obstinate, and I commend him for putting up with the annoying heroine especially when she kept meddling in the topic of his shitty aunt.Some past OM drama, a series of murders, a cat called Lucifer which our hero so often stroked and a couple of well written lovemaking scenes fill this book.Anyway, would have been a much higher rating if the heroine was strangled Just kidding, she shut up for a while and stopped mom ming the hero.Safe2 5 I read somewhere that Amanda Quick s historical romance novels follow an usual formula a somewhat tortured hero who needs to learn how to love and laugh a quirky heroine who marches into his life bringing said love and laughter and never takes no for an answer Well, I happen to like that formula and Dangerous does follow it, so no one will see me complaining here I loved the charming and sarcastic hero Sebastian and the funny and indomitable heroine Prue Their quick banter had me laughing from the start, and it didn t take long for Sebastian to realize that he was never going to win an argument with Prue Not because he wasn t smart or witty enough but because he just wanted to make her happy Too melodramatic Perhaps, but it only made me love him.Sebastian and Prue s relationship went kind of smoothly from the start and all the way through the end There wasn t really any big bumps on their road to the HEA once they got together, there was no doubt on their minds their marriage was going to work but that doesn t mean that the journey was boring Quite the contrary Their common interest in investigating unusual things he helped a Bow Street Runner to solve some cases as a hobby and she was an amateur ghost hunter kept the story flowing very nicely The whodunit mystery they ended up investigating together was actually very good Call me na ve but I didn t guess who the killer was Not that there were that many suspects, it was the why that kept escaping me.All in all, this was a great read and my favorite book by this author Okay, I ve only read two so far, but who s counting LOL At Five And , Prudence Merryweather Knew Very Well The Risks A Woman Took By Visiting A Gentleman In The Dead Of Night But Bearding The Notorious Earl Of Angelstone In His Den Was The Only Way To Stop Him From Engaging Her Hot Headed Brother In A Duel And That Was Why She Found Herself Ushered Into Sebastian S Forbidding Presence At Three In The Morning And Thoroughly Kissed Before DawnShe Was A Country Bred Innocent And An Intriguing Experience For A Man Who Dwelt In The Shadows Than In The Sunshine Yet As Her Boldness Drew Prue Into One Dangerous Episode After Another, Sebastian Found Himself Torn Between A Raging Hunger To Possess Her And A Driving Need To Protect Her And The Reckless Beauty Would Soon Need All The Protection She Could Get
