Filled with New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries’s signature charm and wit, this novella in the hugely popular Sinful Suitors series is sure to tempt you!
Widow Meriel Vyse is stunned speechless when someone tries to abduct her on her way to a ball. Fortunately, Quinn Raines, her secret beau, shows up to foil the attack. Unfortunately, as the two of them are struggling with her abductor, Meriel accidentally stabs Quinn with a knife.
Unbeknownst to Meriel, Quinn set up the fake abduction so he could play the hero and win her hand in marriage. But now that his plan has gone disastrously awry, can he convince her that he’s still the man for her?
Sabrina Jeffries is always a good bet for an entertaining historical romance. This is a SHORT novella that fits into the author’s current (and very good) series, but it is perfect as a standalone.
I liked both hero and heroine, and especially liked that they were so *normal*. The hero was adorably disastrous, and the plot (such as it is in such a short story) was funny.
Sometimes it’s nice to be able to have a story you can read in one sitting, and Jeffries’ humour and sparkling writing makes her perfect for shorter work.
