Was she a second chance at love—
or his golden opportunity for revenge?
Sebastian Cade, reclusive Duke of Rutland, has gone to great lengths to withdraw from the London society he’s come to despise. Still reeling from betrayal and
tragedy, he finds himself powerfully attracted to his
lovely new raven-haired ward—so much so that he begins to question the last five years of his life.
When Julia Deveraux awakens in the Duke’s rose garden, the memories flood back. A betrothal she detests. The great black horse stolen from her father. Her near escape … Now under Sebastian’s care, she sees the rumors of his disfigurement are far from true. But will her secret connection to his sworn enemy tear them apart before love brings them together?
Reviews and Other Information:
"RECKLESS LIAISONS is a no-frills, all romance-all the time, riveting Regency romance. For starters, our hero, Sebastian, captivates the reader in such a manner that even before they're halfway through the book it feels like a moral imperative just to see how his story comes to a conclusion. At the onset, Sebastian feels like the typical historical romance hero - titled, wealthy, sees the Ton for all their petty self-importance, and too handsome to be true (despite a noticeable scar across his face) with a body to match his flawlessness. But it's the way he tortures himself with an obscene amount of guilt and how he continues to nurse his broken heart that will invest the reader in his character. As far as heroines go, Julia is sweetly engaging, with charm enough to win the reader over into believing she is worthy of Sebastian. As a couple, their chemistry is such that there is no doubt the reader will be breezing through the narrative just to find any and all Julia-Sebastian scenes. Another huge asset in the RECKLESS LIAISONS arsenal is the camaraderie between the Cade siblings. The interaction between Sebastian and his younger sister and brother, Catherine and Alex, is annoying and endearing and impudent, but mostly hilarious, all at the same time. Their inimitable poking and prodding stamped their relationship as genuine, emphasizing even more the urgency to read their story to the end. RECKLESS LIAISONS is a rare gem of a romance."
"Kayleigh Jamison has written a Regency romance that is titillating and amusing, fast-paced and well-crafted, luscious and seductive all at once. The characters and story will quickly pull you in and leave you wanting more as you turn each page. The author has written a book that has the reader laughing one moment, and feeling hot and bothered the next. I will eagerly be looking for Ms. Jamison's next book."
Night Owl Romance
"Good read! RECKLESS LIAISONS is a well-constructed story with each character having their own voice and distinctive personality. It is a historical account of London society filled with Dukes, Earls and debutantes that makes you wish you too were a Lady or Gent. Never a dull moment, this story is engaging with its well constructed climaxes and conversational tone. This intriguing story involves all my favorites: gentlemen, galas, power, deceit, handsome faces and of course romance."
Coffee Time Romance
"Jamison delivers a story that will intrigue and captivate you. Julia and Sebastian’s love story sweeps you along from the halls of his stately manor to the theaters of London. The description in each scene carries you back in time to Regency London to horse-drawn carriages on cobblestone streets and debutante balls, where the slightest misadventure could ruin a young lady’s reputation forever. This is a fantastic read and one that you will want to revisit time and again."
Fallen Angel Reviews
"With rich, vivid descriptions the author draws you into the story and makes one feel as though you are there. I was immediately taken with this story and the characters, particularly Sebastian, the hero of the story...a wonderful story that should please fans of fast-paced and intriguing historicals. While this may have been the first book I read by Kayleigh Jamison, it certainly won’t be my last!"
Long & Short Reviews
"RECKLESS LIAISONS wastes no time bringing the reader into the action. In this well written book, there is a secondary cast of characters that definitely have the ability to make a great series! ... a book about love in its truest form, there are some great lovemaking moments in this book, but very tastefully written. It truly is a love story. This is definitely a book that I would recommend because it's a simple story about good vs. evil, with the good guys winning in the end. It's a story with imperfect characters that pull at your heart because you can recognize yourself in them. Quite simply it reminded me of the ups and downs of falling in love and how our insecurities can get the best of us. She [Jamison] also reminds us that anything worth having is worth fighting for, and that without love we have nothing, with love we have it all."
