The Risk of Rogues - Sabrina Jeffries

Great addition to this series. This quick read gives us Captain Lord Hartley Corry's story. When Hart asked for Miss Anne Barkley's hand in marriage when they were teenagers, he was flatly refused by her father. Hoping she was still going to run away and elope with him, he was very disappointed when she didn't show. After time in the service, and his current work as a spy, Hart is finally back in England after 11 years of being away. Imagine his surprise when he sees Anne at his brother's house! It is obvious that the spark is still there and Hart wants to pursue Anne again but he is reluctant to tell her about his past since it could harm his current position as a spy. Through some soul searching and a few stolen kisses, these two finally get their happy ending. I loved these characters and their story. It was a fun, sweet story

ARC review: The Risk of Rogues (The Sinful Suitors, #5.5) by Sabrina Jeffries
The Risk of Rogues - Sabrina Jeffries

The Risk of Rogues - Sabrina Jeffries 

Release date: July 2nd, 2018

 

Last installment in the series, this second chance story was entertaining and sweet. Anne and Hart were young and very much in love when they decided to take the next step. Unfortunately life happened and they had to part ways before that came to fruition. Now that they’ve met again and Anne’s circumstances are different, it’s up to Hart to prove to her he’s the man she deserves and not just the woman he needs. 
To tell the truth, I wasn’t expecting such a short read as the last of the series but even so it was still enjoyable. I particularly liked the fact that both Anne and Hart were well-defined characters and I as a reader was able to connect with them and understand their struggles. Although more than struggles it was a tangle of misunderstandings and misinformation that was preventing them to reach their HEA. I don’t want to give anything away but I had an issue with Hart though. In his attempt to regain Anne’s love, he was willing to trap her into marriage by seducing her. That might be something we see a lot in historicals because it actually tended to happen quite often but it still sounds wrong in my book, historical or not. I know, I know, I’m too modern for my own good but that’s the way I prefer my stories, or not, as is the case here. Overall a good read that most people will be able to tackle in one evening. 
As a side note, that cover is so pretty and I think it’s the perfection depiction of our heroine. I just loved it!

A short read that doesn’t fall to the curse of the novella.  It was well organized, characters had a backstory that made this quick courtship make sense; I absolutely loved how frank they both were at the very beginning of the story. That scene was so refreshing from the sometimes drawn out, keep secrets, tell only half truths, protect the other none sense that can make for a really good romance; however, it was nice that all of that was skipped in this story.  It had a perfectly orchestrated plot and development of the love story.  It was perfect in every way.  Refreshing and enjoyable from start to finish.

Great Book and Great Characters
The Secret of Flirting - Sabrina Jeffries

From the moment Baron Fulkham met Princess Aurore of Chaney, he knows she’s not the princess, but an actress he met several years ago that totally entranced him. He’s determined to get to the bottom of why.

This was a great story as are all of this author’s books. She creates great characters in familiar settings, has a way of connecting the characters in her books seamlessly, and is able to throw in some good drama. This one had a couple of twists I hadn’t actually seen coming, but really enjoyed. Once I started this book, i didn’t really put it down until it was done. I look forward to her next book.

The Secret of Flirting (Sinful Suitors #5) by Sabrina Jeffries
The Secret of Flirting - Sabrina Jeffries

This is the fifth installment in the series but it can definitely be read as a standalone. I’ve only read a couple of the previous books and truthfully I never felt lost or felt like something needed explained. I think that’s always a big plus when it comes to series. 

I think my favorite character here was Monique. From the moment we meet her she’s witty, composed, compassionate, and loyal. She stays true to her character even when she’s posing as her cousin, Princess Aurore of Chanay, candidate for the throne of recently independent country of Belgium. Another thing I liked about the story was the witty banter. If you’ve heard rumors this author delivers when it comes to that I assure you the rumors are completely true. 
The plot in itself was engrossing from the get go. We have assassination attempts, political intrigues, family secrets, and even a love story that was considered taboo at the time. Other reviews say the plot was confusing but I didn’t find it so. However, what I did find difficult to understand was Gregory’s personality.

Gregory, or Lord Fulkham, undersecretary of state (and unofficially “spymaster”) having met Monique a few years prior, and being the one responsible for deciding who would be Belgium’s new ruler, took it upon himself to unmask Monique. At any rate, it didn’t feel he was doing it because it was the right thing to do but because it would further his own political ambitions. Also, the way he treated Monique throughout most of the story felt wrong. In truth, the more I read the more I disliked the man and made it hard for me to get why she fell in love with the guy. It wasn’t until almost the end of the book that I warmed a little to him and the romance took another light. 

All that being said, I won’t deny that at times it was hard to put the book down. Even with all my nitpickin, the chemistry between the main characters felt real and the suspense was enough to keep me turning the pages.
