What a Reckless Rogue Needs by Vicky Dreiling

I finally finished What a Reckless Rogue Needs by Vicky Dreiling. I can't say that I'm surprise that I enjoyed the book, because Vicky is one of my favorite authors. I love her writing, because you will find fun in a book. You will always find humor and sentimental moments. They are great for that "I don't know what to read" books.

What a Reckless Rogue Needs is the second book in the The Sinful Scoundrels series. If you have been following the series, you would remember first meeting Colin Brockhurst back in A Season for Sin. Honestly, I never really saw Colin or Harry as rakes, rogues, or whatever you want to call them. Truth be told, I kind of thought of them as dorks. I guess falling into river doesn't really make you rake material in my book. Anyway, I have change my opinion a little; he might be a rake. Slightly.

Anyway, his father is tired of his tired of his wild ways of living and has decided to take matters into his own hands. How you may ask? His father has decided to sell, a cherished family home. What!? I know the nerve of him. Of course, Colin isn't going to let his father sell the only he has left that ties him to his mother. So, Colin sets out to convince his father that he's willing to take control of the property. However, the only way Colin's father is convince is for Colin to hang his up the rakish lifestyle and marry. Sheesh, that's a might high price to pay.

Now Lady Angeline Brenham has been a friend of the family and she's practically given up hope on finding true love. Let's not split hairs, she's on the shelf and still recovering from a horrendous scandal. However, she would give anything to be at her sister's coming out the up and coming season, but she doesn't see how. However, Colin offers her a chance to be there. Could she sacrifice her morals to be someone like Colin? Will he give up his rakish-lifestyle to save a family home? Can a marriage of convenience work Colin and Angeline?

LOVED What a Reckless Rogue Needs! I was entertained from beginning to end. I was little leery about Colin's father. I just couldn't believe his father would be so callous to Colin's feelings about his childhood home. Granted Colin didn't show much interested until he felt like he was about to lose his home. However, I should know better that Vicky wouldn't have made his father out to be a bad guy, but I did wonder. I love how Colin started to develop a conscience when he was around Angeline. I mean he could have been a cad, because he wanted to secure his childhood home. Yet, he saw something more in Angeline. I appreciate how Angeline was willing to sacrifice herself for her family, but decided what was best for herself. Yes, loved What a Reckless Rogue Needs, because it was light fun with some moments that squeeze out a tear or two.

Now I'm going to be campaign for Colin's half-sisters, Bianca and Bernadette, to get their own book. His twin sisters that would be best describe as little Hellions. They will be making their debut within the next year and I believe they would be a hoot to read. Can you imagine the havoc they will wreak out on the ton. Plus, I will be campaign that they will bring their dog, Hercules, with them to London, because he's a character himself. If this isn't enough here's a little of what Colin's sisters are like:
"Bianca and Bernadette got scolded after Margaret found them draining two glasses of champagne. The marquess was worried that they held their liquor like a man. He confessed to Colin that didn't bode well."
I seriously hope they will get a book. Plus, they come with harebrained  ideas. That's just a side note.
