    Brazen is my favorite Susan Johnson book. It's classic Susan Johnson - erotic historical romance with extremeley handsome, wealthy & arrogant hero and a beyond beautiful heroine. The author's historical romances tend to follow the same pattern, and as such, after reading half a dozen or so of her books, she fell off my TBR list. But I consider this book her best work. I loved it. I read it ages ago, and still think of it as an amazing book with scorching hot sex scenes and great emotion, and still recommend it to readers looking for a hot historical romance. Kit Braddock defines 'yummy' and I liked how the author didn't pair him with a virginal, innocent young miss. Angela holds her own against Kit, and the dynamic makes for a great romance.

    3.5 out of 5 starsLike the second book in the Braddock Black series (Forbidden), this story is intelligently written with characters and dialogue that go beyond the usual love/hate relationship between the hero and heroine. The hero, Kit Braddock, is a wealthy playboy and adventurer who falls in love with Countess Angela de Grae. The problem? She's married with two children to a sadistic earl. Angela is also one of the most beautiful women in Europe and has had her share of lovers and experience in the bedroom. While I can appreciate an author that writes something other than the usual "The Virgin and the Manwhore" type of historical romance, sometimes it's hard reading Susan Johnson books because heroes in love often MAKE love to other women after falling for the heroines in the book. Still, an entertaining enough read, though it could have used some more villainy (a common complaint with me). Though I was happy with how Kit dealt with the evil husband in such a badass way.

    This was surely an unconventional romance novel. The hero Kit Braddock was younger than the heroine Countess Angela de Grae who was as sexually knowledgeable as her lover. Besides she was married and had two children. And the era was different, too. Mostly romance novels take place in the Regency period or earlier. The story here starts in 1896. I commend Johnson for the historical background information you get including the various contraception methods possible at the time and the divorce laws and practices. For anyone who is interested in the Victorian era this is a treat, for Johnson gives an accurate picture of food, manners, behavior, arranged marriages and the Victorian double standard (which resembles the double standard of other romance novel authors who display the Victorian moral codex uncritically in their stories).Not sappy and sweet, but passionate and demanding, this is what sets ”Brazen” different from the run-of-the-mill romance novels. When Kit realizes his feelings run deeper than purely carnal pleasures, he would rather live without Angela than share her with an abusive husband. He is relentless in his pursuit of her. Their emotions and passionate encounters are splendidly displayed for the readers’ perusal. Angela is a mature woman and is without the simpering lines of a weak virgin. She knows what she wants and his name is Kit. Likewise, Kit is a man who is accustomed to getting what he wants and having Angela on his terms is top on his list.More of Purplycookie’s Reviews @:http://www.goodreads.com/purplycookie Book Details: Title Brazen (Braddock-Black #4)Author Susan JohnsonReviewed By Purplycookie

    This book really annoyed me through most of it. The beginning was fine, but once they started sleeping together it got really bad. The dude kept a harem on board his ship but he got mad that she had a few sex toys lying around and had slept with other guys before him? But then he's with her and he's fine with her past, but she says she wont marry him so he suddenly gets mad about her past again. And the girl, who's married to an abusive jerk, refuses to divorce him because shes afraid the Queen of England might not like it. But the worst part was the end, for some reason romance novelists think they need to make the end of their books have completely out of place peril. The girl is kidnapped by the husband and he threatens to kill her because he wants ALL of her money instead of the huge amounts she already gives him. The sex scenes were probably the best part of the book and I hate saying that because I like to have a good story, but it just wasn't that good.

    One of the few SJ novels that I really like. Besides the hero is red-haired, all too rare in novels. However, be warned that the erotica in this one is pretty heavy, so not for the prudish or young.

    “Brazen is about the passionate relationship between Countess Angela De Grae and American playboy Kit Braddock.”“VERY hot read! I like the intense scenes between Angela and Kit but in the end, it really didn’t seem likely that Kit would change his playboy ways. He’d always be special to Angela, and he was good for sex, but he didn’t qualify as being good enough to completely be publicly part of her world. Plus she had some major flaws herself; she was rich; SPOILED; and controlling – which ultimately lead to all the fights and many breakups they had. You just can’t teach an old dog new tricks. I let my sister borrow it years ago and I haven’t seen it since so I can’t remember the ending.”

    I read this as a "palate cleanser" between two heavy WWII books...I generally think Susan Johnson's books are a decent escape...but the writing in this one was completely overwrought, it didn't even sound like her usual style. The dialogue was awful, half the time it didn't even make sense. Or in the (made up) words of Baby May, "Me tinked da talky pawts was wedikleeus."

    I adored the first three Braddock-Black books (Blaze, Silver Flame, Forbidden) more. Chronologically this is the last in the series, and still very enjoyable. Kit Braddock falls hard and never really looks back. Characters were a little less developed than prior books and just less depth.

    It was very slow and I wish it had more substance like Rosemary Rogers old books. I guess the hunt is still on for a good author who writes like the old days and not this fluff and marshmallow stuff.

    BrazenAlthough I have given this book five stars, I have some issues with it. The storyline was great. The excessive amount of sex almost killed it. And I like Susan Johnson's writing. Oh, well, in to the next one.

    This took place in 1896. Kit was a wealthy American ( diamonds & shipping) whokept friends with benefits on his yacht. Angela was a voluptuous English beauty countess, separated from her pedophile husband. She counted the Prince of Wales as a prior conquest. . I lost interest in this story, a 1st for one of Susan's books. Susan is way more capable than this book indicated. Most characters herein lacked morals & had an agenda. IE H said to h "I came here to be serviced" & her reply was "men are all alike, (they) use a scorecard." Sorry to say the sexiest this book got was the sexy cover.

    I thought I've found new Judith McNaught so I was beyond myself. Unfortunately, that is impossible. There was too much sex for 500 pages. And when all is about him screwing her vice versa, my interest is back to my fridge.
