To Wed a Wild Lordby Sabrina Jeffries
Synopses & Reviews
New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries delights readers with the fourth Regency romance in her sexy Hellions of Halstead Hall series, featuring the dark and dangerous Lord Gabriel Sharpe.
To fulfill his grandmother’s ultimatum, Lord Gabriel Sharpe pursues a spitfire he believes desperately needs him. Then the tables are turned…
Like everything daredevil Gabe Sharpe does, wooing Virginia Waverly is a high-stakes game. Ever since her brother, Roger, died racing Lord Gabriel, Virginia has yearned to take her revenge on the reckless lord by beating him at his own sport. But when she challenges Lord Gabriel to a race, the hellion called the “Angel of Death” counters with a marriage proposal! Gabe knows Virginia is in dire financial straits—so why not marry her and solve both of their problems? She claims to be appalled by his proposal, but her response to his kisses says otherwise. And when the two of them begin to unravel the truth behind Roger’s death, Gabe takes the greatest gamble of all, offering the courageous beauty something more precious than any inheritance: true love.
"The lively fourth Hellions of Halstead Hall Regency romance (after How to Woo a Reluctant Lady) will delight readers with mystery, passion, and laugh-out-loud dialogue. Lord Gabriel Sharpe lost his best friend, Roger Waverly, in a terrible carriage-racing accident. Still guilt-wracked seven years later, Gabriel accepts any racing challenge, seeking both funds and death. When Roger's sister, Virginia, challenges him to a race on the same fatal course, Gabriel realizes that wedding her could fulfill his grandmother's demand that he marry or be disinherited, while helping Virginia and her grandfather keep up their failing stud farm. But Virginia swears she'd 'rather immerse in a vat of leeches' than let Gabriel court her, and the tragic past is a wedge between them even as their mutual smittenness develops. Marvelous characterization, lively conversation, and drama perfectly leavened with humor makes this a grand romantic adventure. (Dec.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries delivers the fourth novel in her Hellions of Halstead Hall series, filled with “lively repartee, fast action, luscious sensuality, and an abundance of humor” ( Library Journal ).
Lord Gabriel Sharpe has spent the last seven years, since his friend Roger Waverly’s death, drowning in guilt and dealing with it the only way he knows how: accepting the challenge to any race, no matter how dangerous.
When Virginia Waverly challenges Gabe to race the same course as the one that killed her brother Roger, Gabe realizes that Virginia is just what he needs to fulfil his grandmother’s ultimatum: marriage or no inheritance.
With General Waverly accusing Gabe of Roger’s death and Virginia’s refusal of him upon learning about his inheritance, Gabe is getting farther and farther from his goal of convincing Virginia to marry him. The only way he can think to show her he cares is to denounce his inheritance and make his fortune by winning the race—and her heart.
Drowning in guilt over his best friend's death seven years ago, Lord Gabriel Sharpe, the Angel of Death, knows his only hope at redemption is a race against a shocking opponent.
Shrouded in darkness for the past seven years, the infamous racer Lord Gabriel Sharpe is known to accept every challenge to race thrown at him. When his next challenge comes in the form of his late best friend's sister, Virginia Waverly, Gabe is shocked. Yet she presents just the opportunity Gabe needs--marriage to fulfill his grandmother's ultimatum and ensure his inheritance. What he didn't count on was needing her love.
