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.

    " Hint to the hero: it's easier if you don't kiss her then call her a tramp when she's 19. Also, shocker, the hero has no title (but he is a spy, of course). "

    " I really wasn't impressed by the story or the style of writing. It wasn't terrible but I have no urge to run out and read any of her other books. "

    " 3.5 stars. If I were new to Jefferies, this would probably be a solid 4 stars and a keeper shelf entry for me. However, I've read her entire backlist (multiple times!), and so I found this a little too predictable and formula-driven--fake courtship, turned real with rake who really isn't one, compromising position leading to hasty wedding compounded by layers of misunderstanding. SEVERAL of Jefferies books follow this enjoyable formula, but after seeing it a few times, I think some of those entries are a little stronger or maybe I'm just ready for a little something different plot-wise. I love Jefferies's characterization, and I've wanted to see Giles get his story since Wed Him Before You Bed him, and I also really enjoyed Minerva's character. I like the secondary characters in this series, and I'm dying for Celia and Pinter's story. Book #1 and #2 in this series had unique plots that broke from above formula, so I have high hopes that the next may captivate me a little more. "

    " Just because it is available at the library doesn't mean I have to listen to it. A cute little story. "

    " This new addition to the Hellions of Halstead Hall series is an improvement on the second book and may be as good as the first book. This one focuses on the romance of Minerva with her brothers' friend Giles Masters, who is not what he seems. "

    " This one was very sweet! Except for the parts where the main hero was trying to fool the main heroine and she gave him hard time catching up with her - that was funny. "

    " I actually enjoyed this book until midway through. The "spy" story that suddenly is revealed was rather annoying. The continuing murder mystery is well written and I can't wait for the next revelations. "

    " I tried, again...to read Sabrina Jeffries. Just couldn't care about the characters in How to Woo a Reluctant Lady and not a fan of her quick writing style. Lots of dialogue with little said. "

    " At first I thought the plot might follow along the same lines as the first in the series but I was wrong and am glad for it. Giles and Minerva were fun characters to get to know better and I'm really enjoying the ongoing mystery of who killed the Sharpes' parents! "

About the Author
Author Sabrina Jeffries

Sabrina Jeffries is the New York Times bestselling author of thirty-seven novels and nine 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 more than 7 million books in print in eighteen 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.
