Spotlight: What a Reckless Rogue Needs by Vicky Dreiling

(I am a horrible person. I don’t know why, but this post didn’t publish when it was supposed to. So sorry!! But, here a Spotlight instead (review will go live once I’ve finished reading)

Triple RITA finalist Vicky Dreiling is a confirmed historical romance junkie and Anglophile. Frequent business trips to the UK allowed her to indulge her passion for all things Regency England. Bath, Stonehenge, and Spencer House are among her favorite places. She is, however, truly sorry for accidentally setting off a security alarm in Windsor Castle. That unfortunate incident led her British colleagues to nickname her “Trouble.” Vicky is a native Texan and holds degrees in English literature and marketing.

What a Reckless Rogue Needs


Colin Brockhurst, Earl of Ravenshire, has no desire to wed, this season or any other. So when his father demands he give up his wild ways and take a wife, Colin refuses. But his father raises the stakes and threatens to sell the ancestral home if Colin doesn’t comply. Now Colin has no choice but to find a wife. Unfortunately, the only woman he wants is the one whose heart he broke years ago.


Regardless of the ton’s whispers, Lady Angeline Brenham won’t settle for anything less than true love. After rejecting more than her share of suitable suitors, spinsterhood looms before her-until the devilishly handsome Colin reappears in her life with a proposition. Angeline vows to keep her feet on the ground and her heart in check. That is, until one searing kiss melts her resolve and reignites a burning desire for more . ..

On this date, one year ago RETURNING THE FAVOR entered the world!ReturningtheFavor_Cover

It is a Regency short story part of Boroughs Publishing Group’s Lunchbox Romance line. Little bites of romance over lunch 😉




At thirteen, Lady Catherine James fell out of a tree and into Colin Barringer’s heart. Now six years later, he’s determined to secure her hand in marriage, but will a childhood tragedy keep them apart?


He ignited a fire within her that only he could control. Now, it crawled over her skin at an agonizingly painful pace. It was not terrible to have Colin want her. It was distressing that she wanted him. He had an appalling power over her, he always had.

Colin’s mouth stole her words, his taste invaded her senses. He crowded her against the tree, framed her face with his large hands. Sandalwood and heat surrounded her. His lips pressed against hers in a hot demand. A swipe of his tongue along the seam, a nip at the bottom lip. She gasped and his tongue snaked inside. One hand slid from her face to her neck, his thumb moved across her pulse. He played with her, coaxed a response until she couldn’t breathe. He moaned and she felt it in her chest more than heard it.

Finally, he pulled away. He touched his forehead to hers, his quiet pants mingling with her shallow breathing. Catherine’s eyes refused to open. They were heavy, sleepy.

She licked her lips as her eyes filled with tears. “What was that?” What she couldn’t seem to ask was the question uppermost in her mind.

Colin pressed his thumb to her lower lip and said, “That was a promise. You will be my wife, Catherine.”

He wanted her, but what about love? He’d said nothing of love.
