If you like well-written, historical romances with an edge, check out Anne Stuart’s latest series. The second book, Reckless, is particularly good. (All right, the first book was particularly good, too.)
I’d never really gotten into anything of Stuart’s before, but this is Wowza good. Feels real. The people actually say Fuck, which I can relate to. That’s not its only feature–the sex is great, the hero is very alpha and smart–but it would have felt fake without the language.
Do modern readers really get offended with the f-word in a book with hot, sweaty, graphic f-ing?
I don’t know. But if you like both, you’ll like this book.
(p.s., Dear Author has a great review of it today.)
