Waiting on Wednesday (9)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is designed to showcase books that just released and releasing soon, that we just can't wait to read.

My choice this week is: A Hellion in Her Bed (Hellions of Halstead Hall - Book 2) by Sabrina Jefferies (Releasing September 21st.)


Furious at this Grandmother's ultimatum to marry or loose his inheritance, Lord Jarret Sharpe wagers his luck and his heart at the card table against a most unlikely opponent. Mired in a scandal after his parents mysterious deaths, notorious gambler Lord Jarret Sharpe agrees to tamely run the family brewery for a year if his Machiavellian grandmother rescinds her ultimatum that he marry. But the gambler in him can't resist when beguiling Annabel Lake proposes a wager. If she wins their card game he must help her save her family's foundering brewery. But if he wins, she must spend a night in his bed. The outcome sets off a chain of events that threatens to destroy all his plans... and unveils the secret Annabel has held for so long. When Jarret discovers the darker reason behind her wager, he forces her into another one and this time he intends to win not just her body, but her heart.

A bit like a Georgette Heyer is it?

Georgette Heyer is a bit more conventional. Sabrina goes outside the box with her characters a bit, but I think you'd really like it.
