Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0380818035, Mass Market Paperback)Just what is it about bad boys that women find so irresistible? In Sabrina Jeffries's follow-up to A Dangerous Love, readers again encounter Lady Helena Laverick, who has committed Mrs. Nunley's Guide to Etiquette for Young Ladies to memory. But even the oh-so-proper Lady Helena can't help but notice Daniel Brennan's impressive dimensions when he answers her knock on his door dressed only in his underwear. What business does a gently reared young lady have with the disreputable son of a highwayman?
Only the most dire circumstances could persuade Lady Helena to renew her acquaintance with that scoundrel, but her youngest sister has run away with a fortune hunter and Helena needs Daniel to help her find the young couple before it's too late. As a retired smuggler and Helena's brother-in-law's former man of business, Daniel knows how to get things done and his upbringing makes him ideally suited to this particular mission. Of course, Daniel could travel a lot faster if he didn't have Helena with him--and if he didn't need to fight his attraction to her every step of the way. But Helena is determined to help find her sister, and maybe (if she's totally honest) experience a little adventure along the way. Even if that means she has to put up with the provoking Daniel!
With her trademark blend of sensuality and humor, Jeffries never disappoints her audience as Daniel and Helena learn to look past their many differences and discover their sizzling affinity for each other. This reader can't wait for the next installment from Sabrina Jeffries! --Alison Trinkle

Helena Laverick is at her wits end! The only man who can help find her eloping young sister is that scoundrel Daniel Brennan--the man who played with her emotions last year and then left. And he used to be a smuggler! Although Mrs. Nunley's Guide to Etiquette for Young Ladies would never approve, Helena's forced to go after the runaway in Daniel's company. But something about being with him feels oddly freeing--and a delicious tingle warns Helena that more than her reputation may be in danger ... Daniel finds most of the prim and proper lovely's rules ridiculous--but when she insists on masquerading as his wife for the sake of appearances, he immediately envisions the delights of sharing a bedchamber. The unexpected smouldering beneath her straitlaced exterior ignites his desire, and dire vulnerability hidden beneath her cool control makes him want her even more. Yet Helena's a lady, and he's the son of a highwayman. How can he ever ask her to share his world?
