    2. I read somewhere that Amanda Quick's historical romance novels follow an usual "formula": a somewhat tortured hero who needs to learn how to love and laugh + a quirky heroine who marches into his life bringing said love and laughter and never takes no for an answer. Well, I happen to like that "formula" and Dangerous does follow it, so no one will see me complaining here. :)I loved the charming and sarcastic hero (Sebastian) and the funny and indomitable heroine (Prue). Their quick banter had me [...]

    3. Out to save her hot headed brother from a duel that could kill him Prudence Merryweather finds herself at the door of the man whom her brother challenged, finally coming to an understanding to spare her brother, Pru ends up making a deal with the Fallen Angel which he may collect at anytime, but it doesn’t have her “to” worried that is until he kisses her. The Earl of Angelstone, Sebastian Fleetwood finds the amateur ghost hunter Ms.Merryweather fascinating and very unusual from the women [...]

    4. Sebastian and Prudence are a funny couple. It was quintessential Amanda Quick.Sebastian is a super confident, cool, and enigmatic hero. He is always in control and is drawn to the quirky Prudence from the beginning. Prudence is an odd duck, quick to defend those important to her, and always fascinated by a mystery.While some of the dialogue was a little awkward and Prudence could be tiresome, it was still somehow, fun. I think what was refreshing about the story was that most of the conflict was [...]

    5. This gothic lite story starts with Miss Prudence Merryweather paying a visit to the Earl of Angelstone, Sebastian Fleetwood, at his home way past the hour of acceptability. She has come because her absurdly protective brother is determined to avenge her honor which has been rocked by the fact that the Fallen Angel has been seen in her presence. The ambiance starts up immediately when we are introduced to Sebastian who has been relaxing in his home in a state of dishabille. He eyes Prue up and do [...]

    6. A re-read from my youth, this one is. I read almost all of Amanda Quick's one-word romance novels years ago. Formulaic that they are, I seem to recall them with great clarity. During this phase, Amanda Quick had a distinct preference for eccentric heroines, often with spectacles paired with cold-on-the-surface heros, often earls who were by nature honorable men. I noticed that she had a series of earls as heros. She did not seem to like other ranks much. In these stories the heros were always en [...]

    7. 2.5 starsEh. Big disappointment. I was hoping this might be just as sweet and fun as Ravished, but unfortunately, too many things didn't work for me. I didn't get any sense of much love or affection between Prudence and Sebastian. The case they were investigating for most of the book ended up pissing me off in various ways. I know this book isn't supposed to be taken too seriously, but the crime committed against a young woman was really horrific and it seemed neither Prue, Sebastian nor the you [...]

    8. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either, the plot was interesting and the characters were different in a good way but when it all came together it didn't click.Pru was more like a mother figure than a love interest to Sebastien, I did love her character , she's bossy , intelligent , a little eccentric and very clever but the way she treated Sebastian made her seem like an elder lady not his wife , the way she advised him and the way she treated him in front of others was a little like a mot [...]

    9. Another favorite re-read, this one has Prudence and the Earl of Angelstone sharing investigative adventures as the Earl maneuvers Prudence toward marriage. One of the things I like best about Jayne Ann Krentz is her male characters, who generally know exactly what they want and how to get it without having a clue as to why they want it, which is so typically male. Her female characters, on the other hand, are often headstrong and independent but succumb to their emotions, which gives the male th [...]

    10. 4.5 stars.It should be an easy 5 stars if I didn't want to smack the heroine for a few times.Her quick to defend whoever the target of the Hero's sharp tongue it's very annoying especially when it's deserved.Anyway, this one has a good storyline, I wonder if Ms. Roberts got inspired from this book to write Brotherhood in Death, you know what I mean if you already read that book.Somehow while the disgusting crime are the same, because of the humor in it, this book feel much lighter than BiD and v [...]

    11. Amanda Quick's old historicals are a bit hit or miss. For every Ravished that is easily 5+!!! stars, there are many that are solidly in the 1 to 2 range. While I don't think Dangerous is as good as Ravished, it's close. So very close. More like 4.75. I would love to talk about it, especially with those who also loved Ravished as a comparison, but feel many details at all would give some of the best parts away. There are a few things that Quick does especially well: 1. The book begins in medius r [...]

    12. Not Ms. Quick's best. The plotline it a typical Quick one - innocent heroine (probably virginal), dark mysterious possibly dangerous hero, various threats to the lady, ritual deflowering of the virgin in the library, hero to the rescue, happy ending. These books are all the same and the pleasure is in seeing how the resolution is reached, not in wondering what will happen at the end. Fine.But books should be somewhat believable in their own sphere I think.No woman in her right mind, then or now, [...]

    13. I really do love a good eccentric character (or characters) in my romances. Lord Angelstone could probably qualify as such, with his penchant for mystery solving. And to that end, his new wife Prudence would qualify as well. Named the season's Original, Prue's hobby of investigating spectral phenomena is unique. Though I found both of them amusing at times, especially while Angelstone is discovering Prudence's naiveté, I thought that overall they were painted very thinly and wanted more from bo [...]

    14. 3.5 stars This was a bit of a nostalgia re-read for me. I loved Quick's "letter" historicals when I was in high school and early college. Dangerous isn't the best of them, but it still has its moments.The basic plot? Spinsterish Prudence Merryweather calls on the Earl of Angelstone late at night to convince him not to duel with her brother. Their inital meeting is fraught with all kinds of tension and makes for great reading. Sebastian, the Earl, finds himself unexpectedly intrigued by the Origi [...]

    15. A great Amanda Quick read and one of my favorite by her. Prudence is a strong, adventurous, and lovely heroine and it is an absolute joy to watch Sebastian, "The Fallen Angel," fall under her spell - completely unwillingly on his part and unknowingly on hers. Angelstone is great - the cold, austere, vengeful hero whom everyone is scared of except our heroine, of course, who intrigues and enchants him!

    16. Love this story. It was the first Amanda Quick I ever read. There is an intelligent and "original" heroine with little family. A hero who has family issues and a mystery to solve. That is the formula for these books and it is one I love.Prudence begs Sebastian to call off the duel her brother started by apologizing to him. He agrees and through some mix-up they soon end up engaged. Pru sees only good things in Sebastian which brings out his better nature.

    17. Our eccentric little ghost-busting heroine bespeaks the aide of Angelstone, aka The Fallen Angel, who dwells in the shadows with furry little Lucifer. Fun!

    18. (Sebastian) Angelstone and Prudence. I listened to this on audio and yes, I had indeed read it before. But I still enjoyed it a second time. I loved the h and H! As is typical for AQ, the H is a bad boy who is very much in control, bordering on austere. He is enamoured by the h who is far different from his usual cup of tea. The h is pretty cerebral but a bit stupid when it comes to men and women and sex. He of course steams up her glasses like no other. ; )Angelstone notices Prudence the minute [...]

    19. Like 4 or 5 years ago I've read almost all books by Amanda Quick. She became one of my favorites Historical Romance authors, along with Lisa Kleypas and Julie Quinn. The bad thing about reading all her books in a row is that, with time, you tend to mix the plots, the characters, which is what happened to me. I remembered this book was one of my favorites, but I could not remember the plot that well.As usual, the heroine is unusual. And the hero, a cold rakish gentleman. Why is this formula not w [...]

    20. Another early, classic AQ! Prudence Merriwether is the daughter of "scientists" and she is herself interested in ghosts. She calls herself "an investigator of spectral phenomena." She and her brother have been brought to London by Lady Hester for whom she performed an investigation and found that lady's missing jewels.The book opens with Prudence visiting Sebastian Fleetwood, the Earl of Angelstone, to convince him to call off a duel with her brother, Trevor. Earlier in the evening, Sebastian, w [...]

    21. I downloaded a couple digital library Amanda Quick books after she was recommended to me. I've quickly discovered that every book is the same! I do like the female characters but every plot device occurs the same way in each book. It got so tiresome I stopped reading. I felt like I was reading the same book over and over again but with different characters. Even the villians were similar. How disappointing. I was looking for historical fiction along the lines of Julia Quinn or Lisa Kleypas with [...]

    22. رواية هي مزيج ما بين الرومانسية والأكشن وخيال ما وراء الطبيعة، تفاجأت خلالها بالقاء المؤلفة الضوء على ما يجيش به عقل وصدر الرجل في علاقته بالمرأة؛ فمن المعتاد في مثل هكذا روايات تكون مترجمة إلى العربية أن يتم التركيز على ما تشعر به وتفكر فيه المرأة وحدها من: إعجاب/ خوف/ إطمئن [...]

    23. This would have been a 5 star read for me if the heroine hadn't nagged on endlessly about the hero taking care of his dreadful family. Other than that, I really enjoyed Sebastian and Prue's honest and forthright connection. There was no artifice between then and for some reason I found it really refreshing. This is one of the best AQ books I have read.

    24. This was my first experience with this author and I had a great time reading this. Prue and Sebastian were a great couple. I loved the way that Prue was able to handle the "Fallen Angel" Sebastian. The mystery was interesting, the dialogue was funny, and the romance was sweet.I hope that I get a chance to read something else from this author soon.

    25. This was an earlier book by the author, and that shows in the hero's particular inability to appreciate (or even recognize) emotions. I liked the hero, and enjoyed his droll sense of humor. The heroine was perceptive and intelligent, but naive. I found the hero's most annoying interactions with her to be based on his (more experienced) perspective and condescension towards her ideas. The mystery is pretty good in this one, and I enjoyed the story a great deal.

    26. Prudence Merryweather had attended a ball and been asked to dance by the notorious Earl of Angelstone, known as the Fallen Angel. Her brother had called him out for asking Prudence to dance and they were supposed to duel in the morning. She went to see the Fallen Angel around 2 am, knowing that he would still be awake. She asked him to apologize to her young brother, Trevor, and call off the duel. He told her that he would but she would owe him. He kissed her and then took her home in his carria [...]
