A LADY NEVER SURRENDERS
Jeffries pulls out all the stops for her Hellions of Halsted Hall finale. With depth of character, emotional intensity and the resolution to the ongoing mystery rolled into a steamy love story, this one is not to be missed.
The youngest member of the society-shocking Sharpes, Lady Celia recalls the night her parents died in a tragic double murder. She has no desire to, but she must marry in two months or lose her inheritance. She enlists Bow Street runner Jackson Pinter to investigate her potential suitors. He’s not keen on helping her find a husband, but he does want to uncover the truth about her parents’ deaths. As Celia’s memories begin to return she faces grave danger and Jackson is the one man she can trust with her life and her heart. Together they face her family, society and a killer.
