By the time SABRINA JEFFRIES was eighteen, she’d eaten chicken heads and jellyfish, been chased by a baby elephant, seen countless cobras and pythons, had the entire series of rabies shots, and visited rain forests and rubber plantations. But that wasn’t enough excitement for her; to escape her mundane life as a missionary’s daughter, she read romance novels. Now she writes romance novels, and her bestselling, award-winning tales of strong women and sexy, dangerous men have been translated all over the world. Although she now lives a quiet life in North Carolina with her husband and son, her colorful past has given her plenty of inspiration for more novels.From Publishers Weekly:
The second installment in Jeffries's School of Heiresses trilogy finds Louisa North, illegitimate daughter of King George IV, once again entangled with Simon Tremaine, the duke of Foxmoor. Following his grandfather's advice never to let a woman get in the way of his future, Simon wooed but then abandoned Louisa seven years earlier to make his fortune in India. When he returns to England, Simon's political aspirations are his highest priority—and Louisa makes an intriguing means to an end. In exchange for courting and marrying Louisa—whom George IV is eager to be rid of—the king agrees to make Simon prime minister. As the couple share witty barbs and sensuous trysts, they clash over issues domestic and political—in particular, her charitable work for the women prisoners of Newgate. Romance and intrigue deepen as Simon comes to grips with his feelings for Louisa and the emotional damage he carries, first instilled by the harsh lessons of his loveless grandfather. Bringing together a bold heroine and a scarred hero while incorporating political scandal into a tightly woven romance, Jeffries once again proves her mettle as a first rate Regency author. (Sept.)
