A talent for temptation - Sabrina Jeffries

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?

My thoughts:
So this was just a short novella.

Meriel has been flirting and seeing Quinn for months. Not daring to tell her brother in law, and not daring to wish for more. Quinn's mum is a count's daughter. Meriel is nothing. Better not go there.
Then she gets kidnapped ..well almost
Quinn to the rescue, of course he planned the whole thing cos he really wants her.

Aye, one of those he wants, she is afraid ones. I may not approve of the way he wanted to show that he is the one for her, but it all worked out.

A nice little romance, that gives us a a look at a 3rd person. The hero in the next book ;)

Eyes please

  1. I seriously need to pick up a book by Sabrina Jeffries! I've heard nothing but praise for her. Glad this novella was nice and enjoyable. :)

    1. I read the Hellions of Hallstead Hall series and it was so, so good! I have read a few of her books since them, but would like to catch up on this series & the one before it.

  2. Oh dear...that's not the way you win a girl Quinn lol

    For What It's Worth

  3. This sounds like one that might be perfect for the 24 hr readathon. I think I've enjoyed Jeffries' books before.

    1. It is so short that is is totally perfect for that

  4. I love the cover thanks Blodeuedd for the super review!

  5. LOL at "eyes please" Sounds like a good into to the author. Love shorts for that!

  6. I've seen this author around and not got to her books as yet. High time now.

  7. Don't think I've tried one of hers yet!

  8. Eh... historical romance just doesnt do it for me.

  9. Gosh, what a comedy of errors! The blurb sounds funny, oh Quinn way to have your plan backfire on you on a most spectacular way!
