Ross Benson is titled, privileged, rich--and careful to ignore eligible young women. Most of all he would avoid young maidens with a preference for books and music than society, no matter how beautiful they might be. Until he makes the mistake of a lifetime and seduces an innocent... She knows better than to surrender to his persuasive charms, but Cassandra Rollins cannot resist temptation when the infamous Viscount Winterton insists on a wickedly pleasurable good night kiss. One thing leads to another and to her chagrin, she finds herself thoroughly compromised. Since she has always harbored a secret passion for Ross, it wouldn't be so bad, but he has absolutely no desire to marry her to satisfy his honor. Can a jaded aristocrat and an unsophisticated bluestocking find common ground to avoid certain scandal, or will one reckless moment ruin both their lives?

5 Blue Ribbons: "This storyline is full of all the loveable characters, passion and suspense that I've come to eagerly anticipate about this series. I adored Cassandra because she is so different from society ladies. She's extremely intelligent and honest, not to mention beautiful. With the combination of those traits she manages to snare Ross's affection and keep him firmly enthralled with her. Ross has been living the 'privileged' lifestyle for so long he doesn’t even see how self-indulgent and jaded it is until after he marries Cassandra. There's just a little issue from his past poses a threat and I have to admit, I was fascinated by that twist to the storyline. While I do personally recommend reading all the books in this series -- just because I've honestly loved them -- they can easily be read as stand alone stories and doing so won't detract from your enjoyment of them." -Chrissy Dionne, Romance Junkies

5 Hearts: "What a fabulous book! Cassandra was a young woman who hated London and Ross hated the country, yet they found themselves getting along very well. Unlike most virgins of the Regency time, Cassandra had a husband who introduced her to sex beautifully. They had amazing and arousing sex which I enjoyed immensely. I loved Ross and Cassandra; they were fun and fascinating characters. Ross and Cassandra were very well-written, with a wonderful historical background. Ms. Wildes obviously did her homework. There were interesting secondary characters who had excellent places in the story. The characters pulled me right into the plot and I found myself unable to put this book down until I had finished the whole thing. I found that the plot was seamless, without a single bump in the plot. In A Reckless Moment is the third book in Ms. Wildes' Brothers of the Absinthe Club series and it was every bit as good as the earlier two. This was another beautiful book by Emma Wildes! " -Marcy, The Romance Studio
