LISA'S REVIEW: A Hellion in Her Bed (Sabrina Jeffries)

A Hellion in Her Bed (Hellions of Halstead Hall #2)

by Sabrina Jeffries

Furious at his grandmother's ultimatum to marry or lose his inheritance, Lord Jarret Sharpe wagers his luck and his heart & at the card table against a most unlikely opponent. 

Mired in scandal after his parents' mysterious deaths, notorious gambler Lord Jarret Sharpe agrees to tamely run the family brewery for a year if his Machiavellian grandmother rescinds her ultimatum that he marry. But the gambler in him can't resist when beguiling Annabel Lake proposes a wager. If she wins their card game, he must help save her family & foundering brewery. But if he wins, she must spend a night in his bed. The outcome sets off a chain of events that threatens to destroy all his plans . . . and unveils the secret Annabel has held for so long. When Jarret discovers the darker reason behind her wager, he forces her into another one and this time he intends to win not just her body, but her heart.

I really enjoyed Jeffries humor and style of writing. This series has me hooked! I cannot put down the stories about the Hellions! I loved Oliver's story, but I think I love Jarret's more. The way Jarret was with George was great. I loved seeing that side of him. I have fallen for all the men in this series. They may be rouges but there is so much more to them than that! Jeffries has created a world full of interesting and dynamic characters. A world I am completely lost in right now! I love the men and of course all the strong wome. Annabel was the perfect character to counter Jarret! Now I can't wait to read which Sharpe Hellion will be next in line to fall in love!

Sabrina Jeffries is the NYT bestselling author of 36 novels and 9 works of short fiction (some written under the pseudonyms Deborah Martin and Deborah Nicholas). Whatever time not spent writing in a coffee-fueled haze of dreams and madness is spent traveling with her husband and adult autistic son or indulging in one of her passions—jigsaw puzzles, chocolate, and music. With over 7 million books in print in 18 different languages, the North Carolina author never regrets tossing aside a budding career in academics for the sheer joy of writing fun fiction, and hopes that one day a book of hers will end up saving the world. 

She always dreams big.
