Books by Sabrina Jeffries

C
Only a Duke Will Do

I understand the challenges facing authors of English Historicals today and the need to make their latest book different without modifying the setting so many of us adore. But in an attempt to offer yet another variation in theme or feature an even more unconventional character, many of these histor ...

Never Seduce a Scoundrel

I am torn about this book and the grade it should receive. I really liked this book. And I really disliked this book. Unfortunately, I disliked it for a good hundred pages, and, if I wasn't reviewing the book, I wouldn't have bothered reading far enough to get to the good stuff. Lady Amelia ...

B
In the Prince's Bed

Sabrina Jeffries is an author I can always count on for an enjoyable read. But to date she has not truly dazzled me. With each new book, I hope for excitement because of her very solid efforts in the past. And each time the enjoyment is there, but the thrill of a DIK is not. Continuing that trend In ...

Married to the Viscount

You know those authors that you think you'd probably like? You've definitely caught some good buzz and read a review or two that sounded interesting, but somehow you've never managed to actually getting around to trying her. I've meant to try Sabrina Jeffries for quite some time and, if I'm disappoi ...

Dance of Seduction

Most European Historicals begin in medias res, with some dramatic moment playing out throughout the rest of the book. Dance of Seduction seemingly starts out with such a scene, but what is revealed there is ultimately of little importance to the rest of the book. It's as if Jeffries's characters ran ...

After the Abduction

After the Abduction is a history-lite, humor-heavy historical romance that is not Sabrina Jeffries' best. And those readers who haven't read the preceding two books in this trilogy will discover that there's more than just a little backstory missing. Juliet Laverick eloped with smu ...

B-
A Notorious Love

Although the story of the gently bred lady and the low born man who fall in love is not a new one, I found the main characters in A Notorious Love set apart from the rest. Just one example is that they’ve met and interacted before the book opens, although that hasn’t exactly set them on each oth ...

B
A Dangerous Love

A Dangerous Love is the first in what is promised to be a trilogy featuring three sisters known as the Swanlea Spinsters. It centers on the middle daughter, Rosalind. Usually the mention of spinster sisters in a regency (historical or traditional Regency) is enough to make me a litt ...

C+
The Dangerous Lord

I found reading The Dangerous Lord to be like eating an almost-good casserole - the type where you like the rice, cheese, and chicken, but have to eat around the olives. The book has some nice characters and some great scenes, but some of the plot elements are just a bit off. Felic ...

The Forbidden Lord

Odd as it may sound, I can often judge how much I enjoyed a book by simply counting how many times I wanted to clobber the hero with his own boot. There's just something about the alpha male. He's maddening and sometimes amusing, but he has a heart of gold, and his redemption at the hands of the her ...
