TO WED A WILD LORD
Gabriel Sharpe, the fourth of the Hellions of Halstead Hall, meets his match as Jeffries beguiles readers with a beautifully rendered tale of vengeance and redemption. There is action, passion, suspense and most of all, poignancy. The strong sense of family, an integral part of the series, shines through as another Hellion finds unexpected love and Jeffries delivers another unforgettable romance.
Since his best friend’s death Gabriel has set the ton on its ear with his recklessness. After her brother Roger dies racing Gabriel, Virginia Waverly wants to exact revenge on the daredevil known as the Angel of Death. Virginia is determined to challenge Gabriel to a race and win. It appears Gabriel savors his reputation, but he counters Virginia’s offer with a proposal of his own — a marriage proposal. Her family needs money, and by marrying he will fulfill his grandmother’s wishes and gain a fortune. Virginia is stunned by Gabriel’s proposition, yet the wild lord intrigues her. As they set out on a courtship that includes uncovering the truth about Roger’s race and Gabriel’s parents’ scandalous deaths, they discover love is the greatest risk of all.
