If the Viscount Falls

If the Viscount Falls is a decent book about decent people who have some basic communication issues. There’s a little bit of a mystery in it, which is nice, but overall it felt like the bland sort of book you’d be happy to pick up when you’re bored. I didn’t dislike it, but I wasn’t overco ...

How the Scoundrel Seduces

This is the third book in Ms. Jeffries’ current series, The Duke’s Men, the name which is loosely applied to Manton Investigations, the firm built and run by Dominic Manton and his half-brother, Tristan Bonnaud. Towards the end of the previous book, When the Rogue Returns, Dom a ...

When the Rogue Returns

When the Rogue Returns is an entertaining and undemanding read – I whipped through it in a couple of sessions – but the fast pacing and the intriguing storyline of the re-building of a marriage couldn’t quite disguise the fact that the characterization was somewhat thin and that the plot hinge ...

What the Duke Desires

I started writing this review a day or two after I finished reading What the Duke Desires, and was poised to give it a B or B-. Then a couple of days went by, and I got back to writing this review, and... I had nothing. I didn't remember this book at all. And that was within a week of finishing it. ...

By Love Unveiled

Normally I'm a fan of re-releases. So many romantic novels have entirely too short a shelf life, and I've been able to read some wonderful books I missed the first time around. However, there are some books that probably deserve to stay in the past, and By Love Unveiled is certainly one of them. In ...

How to Woo a Reluctant Lady

How to Woo at Reluctant Lady is the third book in Sabrina Jeffries’ Hellions of Halstead Hall series and it does not function well as a stand-alone book. That is fine with me because I have read the first two books in the series, but if you haven’t, don’t start here. There are five Sharpe sibl ...

The Truth About Lord Stoneville

I have only read two books by Sabrina Jeffries: Her unforgettable debut, The Pirate Lord, and another very forgettable tome that put me off until this book, when curiosity finally overcame me. The cat is still alive, but it’s not a happy camper. <a href="http://www.likesbooks.com/banm ...

Don’t Bargain with the Devil

I read Don’t Bargain with the Devil at a snail's pace. It was all I could do not to hurl the book out of the nearest window, and I could only take 20 pages at a time. While the plot is decent, the excruciatingly annoying characters doomed this story from the first chapter and made me want to tear ...

Let Sleeping Rogues Lie

I have never so enjoyed a book with such an unlikely plot. Even though I had to work really hard to suspend disbelief throughout Let Sleeping Rogues Lie, it was definitely worth it. Madeline teaches mathematics and natural history, an unusual subject for young ladies, at an exclusiv ...

Beware a Scot's Revenge

If you're looking for a kidnap/revenge romance, you should look into the latest in Sabrina Jeffries' School for Heiresses series, Beware a Scot’s Revenge. It features a hero and heroine who secretly care for each other even as they exchange constant insults back and forth with time to kiss like t ...
