LISA'S REVIEW: A Lady Never Surrenders (Sabrina Jeffries)

A Lady Never Surrenders (Hellions of Halstead Hall #5)

by Sabrina Jeffries

New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries delights readers with the final novel in her sexy Regency Hellions of Hallstead Hall romance series, featuring Lady Celia Sharpe and the upstanding Bow Street runner, Pinter.

Lady Celia Sharpe has always been wary of marriage but now her future depends on it.

With two months left to find a husband and fulfill her grandmother's ultimatum, Celia sets her sights on three eligible bachelors. Becoming betrothed to one of these wealthy, high-ranking men will surely prove her capable of getting married, so hopefully the wedding itself won't be necessary for Celia to receive her inheritance. Step two of her audacious plan is hiring the dark and dangerously compelling Bow Street Runner, Jackson Pinter, to investigate the three men she's chosen.

With Lady Celia bedeviling Jackson's days and nights, the last thing he wants is to help her find a husband. And when she recalls shadowed memories that lead his investigation into her parents' mysterious deaths in a new direction, putting her in danger, Jackson realizes the only man he wants Celia to marry is himself!

Another fantastic Hellion Book! I have loved Pinter in all the books! The back and forth between him and Celia was great! I also love Celia because she is not your typical Lady. These two make quite the pair. I got really angry with Hetty in this book. I think this is the only time I have not liked her character so well. It worked out well in the end though. The way the murder was solved was a huge twist for me. I did not suspect the ending. I knew who the killer was but wow! What a twist. Beautifully written! The characters are absolutely amazing and I do hope to get to read the Duke of Lyons story! This was a fantastic series and she ended it amazingly well! One of my favorites for sure!


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.
