Waiting on Wednesday: To Wed a Wild Lord by Sabrina Jeffries

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking the Spine. It highlights books we just can't wait to get our greedy book loving hands on.

I've read 3 out of 4 of the books in this series and have liked them all. (I will probably go back and read the one I missed, too.) I have to admit, I'm not a fan of this cover, though.

The Blurb: 

Like everything daredevil Gabriel Sharpe does, pursuing 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 who has always embraced his dark reputation as the “Angel of Death” counters with a marriage proposal!

Gabe knows Virginia's family is in dire financial straits—why shouldn’t she marry him and solve both their problems? She claims to be appalled by his proposal, but her response to his kisses says otherwise. So when the two of them begin to unravel the truth behind Roger’s death, Gabe takes the greatest gamble of all, offering the cunning and courageous beauty something more precious than any inheritance: true love.


  1. I checked out book 1 in the series from the library but never started it. The most recent book in the series, with a heroine who wrote Gothic novels (IIRC) really appealed to me.

  2. Ooh - excellent! I loved the first three Hellions books, so I'll definitely be waiting for this one too. Thanks for the heads up!

  3. @Hannah,

    I didn't read book 2 (which I think was the novelist one?) but did read the latest one that featured a barrister. I'm not sure exactly how accurate the portrayal was since I know nothing about that (it felt well researched) but I enjoyed the courtroom scenes.


    Thanks for stopping by! There's just something about Sabrina Jeffries's voice that I love.
