Another great Jo Goodman book blending intrigue with romance.
Second in the Thorne Brothers triology. These three brothers were separated by fate in their very early youth. "My Reckless Heart" is the story of Decker Thorne and his employer, Jonna Remington, of Remington Shipping, of Boston. Story begins in London, 1820.
Another great story from Jo Goodman!
The plot thickens. One brother has found one of his brothers. This story is about Decker and his adventures in America. The story is good and has held my interest. However, somewhere in the story the heroine, who made it plain that she was going to remain an independent woman, does an about face. I got a different feel for her character from one page almost within two more pages. I don't think I missed anything in two pages. Let's just say she changed into a completely different person. On one page she was fiercely independent and in two pages she was a woman in love and couldn't do more to cater to our hero. Well, all is well. I am definitely committed to Book 3 when the third brother will be found. Remember there is always a happy ending.
Series Note: setting is during the Pre-American Civil War period. Some of the scenes take place in England and some in America.

This is book two of a trilogy about the Thorne brothers, separated after the death of their parents. This was a soulless book; it was difficult to complete it. Jonna Remmington was a cold, reserved heroine who did not bloom during the story. Her romantic interest, Decker Thorne had enough difficulty making himself interesting that he did little to help her.
