Favorite Lines: “They had a fabulous sex life. Drake was an attentive, tender lover who took his time in pleasing her. But every once in a while something in him changed and she caught a glimpse of the truly dangerous man he really was. She hadn’t tamed him, not one bit. He just chose to show her a tender side he said he’d only discovered with her.” (p. 17, egalley)

What do you give your beautiful wife when you’ve got all the money in the world but can’t spend it?

Victor “Drake” Drakovitch used to run a criminal empire, but he gave it all up for the woman he loves. Grace, an accomplished artist, abandoned the life she knew in order to be with the one man she could never live without.

Exiled to an island far from their former lives, the two stay safe from the watchful eyes of Drake’s many enemies. This Christmas, Drake wants to show Grace how much her sacrifice means. But what can he give a woman who shuns gold jewelry and diamonds, furs and expensive cars? Grace doesn’t want fancy things; she wants what Drake can give her—unquestioning devotion, fierce protection… and the best sex a woman has ever had.

Until terror strikes and Grace realizes that the best gift of all is a dangerous husband.

Lisa Marie Rice, author of the Dangerous series, follows up book three in the series (Dangerous Passion) with a peek into its hero’s and heroine’s new lives. A peek into their new lives is told in Reckless Night. When I say peek, I mean the story began on page 4 and it ended on page 30, according to my nook.

The short, erotic snippet of the married couples’ life will most likely appeal to those who read Dangerous Passions. I didn’t get sucked into the story, but the sex. Oh, the sex is another matter entirely.

The blistering sex features a “huge erect penis” and a woman willing to let her man direct her when it comes to sex. It mixes a little voyeurism with domination by a husband’s “hard, hot club.”

He was huge. When they made love, his foreplay lasted forever because he wanted to make sure she could take him without pain. He’d been able to enter her in one stroke only because she’d been so excited and so very wet.–p. 19

But there is more to the story than sex. The story basically lets the reader know that despite the necessity of changing many things, the hero is still capable of protecting his woman. He’d do anything for her and it shows.

I won’t be re-reading the story, but it is extremely short. All I’m saying is take it for what it is…a glimpse into a couple’s happily ever after.
