"An action romanc that is fun to read"
In 1815 London, sisters Helena and Rosalind Lavelick
are total opposites when it comes to following the Mrs.
Nunley's Guide to Etiquette for Young Ladies. While Helena
feels you must have strict adherence with no exceptions,
Rosalind believes in only those passages that make sense.
So why is Helena walking the streets by herself to a man's
house breaking every rule in the guidebook? Simple, she
needs the help of an individual she loathes Daniel Brennan
to help her find her eloping sibling Juliet.
Helena believes her sister's suitor is a smuggler doing
all sorts of illegal and ugly activities that leave an
innocent like Juliet in danger. She chooses Daniel to help
her because he has teenage experience as a smuggler and
knows how they think. Daniel agrees to assist Helena chase
after Juliet and her suitor Captain Will Morgan, but
insists they must do so as husband and wife. As the duo
argues, they fall in love, but not just danger awaits them,
mistrust leaves them vulnerable and disconnected.
A NOTORIOUS LOVE is a fun to read Regency romance that
smoothly mixes excitement and humor so that the audience
enjoys a fine tale. Daniel opens Helena's eyes that her
bad leg is not the handicap, but her attitude towards life,
especially males, is. As she did with THE DANGEROUS LORD,
Sabrina Jeffries provides sub-genre fans with an engaging
blend of merriment and danger in a terrific story line.
