I was loving this book until in the final third when the hero seduces the heroine about 2 minutes after promising her up and down he'll prove his love by waiting for their wedding night. I found this confusing and smarmy. Otherwise this was a highly enjoyable read. This was my first Sabrina Jeffries book and I really enjoyed her writing style. The Sharpe family of "hellions" is entertaining and their emotional lives believable. I'll definitely be reaching for the second book in this series.
