READ Reckless

Gist David Turnberry she feigns amnesia thus enabling her to linger among the highborn Hunter MacDonald rugged archaeologist is wise to her little charade and determined to protect his best friendUndaunted Kat stows away on the ship carrying David and Hunter's expedition party to the land of the pharaoh Scandal. I wasn t expecting much from this when I first picked it up honestly thought it would be a light historical romance that had eual 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 conceptcharacters and will definitely look into the rest of the series

From elite London society to the golden sands of Egypt and the sacred places of her heart When Kat Adair plunges into the waves to rescue a drowning man it is just the beginning of an odyssey that will sweep the fisherman's daughter into danger and desire Convinced she is in love with the man she saved Egyptolo. 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 it s just very confusingHunter was an interesting character strong and intelligent and I probably would have liked the book a whole lot if the story had followed him than Kat Kat annoyed me to no end The other characters went on about how smart she was what a uick study but she kept doing one stupid thing after another She s the type of heroine who thinks it s a good idea to rush off by herself to confront the hoard of bad guys without bothering to tell anyone where she s going and then when she s inevitably captured and having her life threatened she sits and thinks oh well they ll come for me The only thing remotely intelligent she did was learn to translate Egyptian hieroglyphs into English in one afternoon Fluently I m thinking this doesn t ualify her as a smart person though She s of a savantSir Arthur Conan Doyle makes a rather gratuitous appearance presumably to highlight the mystery portions of the book In truth the plot had potential and kept me turning pages despite wanting to bash Kat over the head with something blunt and heavy but the ending aimed for something too large and just wound up feeling overblown Some of that might have to do with Kat s insistence on plunging headfirst into danger when it wasn t necessary but considering there was only one character in the entire book who is introduced as unlikeable it s hardly a surprise when the villain is finally revealedThe prose suited the tone of the book and the dialogue was appropriate to the time period I briefly touched on the attention to detail before but it bears mentioning again that Drake clearly knows how to enrich the world she s created without forcing lengthy descriptive passages in there In all honesty this book would likely have scored much higher if Kat hadn t been uite so ahem reckless As it stands I would have called the book Bull headed Idiot but I suppose it might not have sold uite as well that way

    It is a little bit better than I expected I thought it will be silly and annoying And I was positively surprise there is 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 predictableThe characters are okay Hunter describes Kat as young
