HOW TO WOO A RELUCTANT LADY
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
Jeffries’ third captivating Hellions of Halstead Hall book has the fast-paced sensuality, delicious humor and marvelous storytelling that are the author’s trademarks. It is a delight to find strong-willed Lady Minerva tangled in love’s knots with a man who is simply perfect. It’s a tale to thoroughly relish.
Gothic novel authoress Lady Minerva Sharpe does not want to marry — ever. She has to find a way out of her grandmother’s decree that she wed or risk being disinherited. Barrister Giles Masters has long loved Minerva and so he proposes, which gives Minerva the idea that they pose as an affianced couple to foil her grandmother. She might feel secure in her scheme, but this is the opportunity Giles needs to woo and win her heart. There’s more to their relationship then courting, though: Giles’ secrets and Minerva’s need for honesty collide as they are caught up in a traitor’s scheme. Anything can happen, even falling in love.
