LISA'S REVIEW: How to Woo a Reluctant Lady (Sabrina Jeffries)

How to Woo a Reluctant Lady (Hellions of Halstead Hall #3)

by Sabrina Jeffries

The third novel in Sabrina Jeffries's “Hellions of Hallstead Hall” series, featuring the independent and talented Lady Minerva Sharpe.

When a charming rogue proposes she marry him to meet her grandmother's ultimatum, the Sharpe clan's strong-willed sister makes a tempting counter-offer that preserves her inheritance and ignites his imagination. 

Lady Minerva Sharpe has the perfect plan to thwart her grandmother's demands: become engaged to a rogue! Surely Gran would rather release her inheritance than see her wed a scoundrel. And who better to play the part of Minerva's would-be husband than wild barrister Giles Masters, the very inspiration for the handsome spy in the popular Gothic novels she writes? The memory of his passionate kiss on her nineteenth birthday has lingered in Minerva's imagination, though she has no intention of really falling for such a rakehell, much less marrying him.

Little does she know, he really is a covert government operative. When they team up to investigate the mystery behind her parents' deaths, their fake betrothal leads to red-hot desire. Then Minerva discovers Giles's secret double life, and he must use all the cunning tricks of his trade to find his way back into her heart.

Another great book of the hellions of Halstead Hall! I loved Giles and Minerva's story! The history between the two causing a rocky ride to find that they both love ones another! I love Jeffries characters so much. I get totally lost in her world! I laughed a lot more in this story too! I think this maybe my favorite Hellion Story! Minerva is such an easy character to relate to and her relationship with Giles is great! I love that each book also brings us closer to finding the truth of the mystery behind the Sharpe's deaths! The mystery a long with the love stories of the Sharpe Children makes this series irresistible to all Can't wait for more!!!

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.
