Description

 HELLIONS OF HALSTEAD HALL

They're the scandalous Sharpes, five hell-raising siblings tainted by a shocking family legacy. Now each faces a daunting ultimatum: marry by year's end -- or kiss their inheritance good-bye.

In the two decades since a tragic "accident" took the lives of his parents, Oliver Sharpe, the Marquess of Stoneville, has survived the scandal surrounding that fateful night by living as an unrepentant rakehell. And with his grandmother vowing to disinherit him if he doesn't settle down and wed, he plans to fulfill the bargain in true Sharpe style -- by bringing home a fake fiancée from a brothel! But his scheme is derailed when he rescues an American beauty in a dire predicament instead. Maria Butterfield came to London to track down her groom-to-be, who's gone missing, but her engagement won't stop Oliver from getting what he wants: her, in his bed. His rebellious masquerade may call his grandmother's bluff , but it's soon made all too real -- by a love that tempts him to be a hellion no more.

        Starred review from December 15, 2009
        Children of parents who died in a notorious murder-suicide, the five Sharpe siblings have been behaving outrageously for years. Their grandmother threatens to cut them out of her will unless they settle down and marry within the year, so the eldest, Oliver, Marquess of Stoneville, hatches the perfect plan. Unfortunately, he brings home an American heiress in search of her missing fianc as his "betrothed" instead of the doxy he'd intended. Reprising a charming reprobate from her "School for Heiresses" series as her hero, Jeffries has launched a another sparkling series with winning potential. VERDICT Lively repartee, fast action, luscious sensuality, and an abundance of humor make the first installment of the "Hellions of Halstead Hall" essential for libraries. Jeffries ("Wed Him Before You Bed Him") lives in North Carolina.

        Oliver Sharpe, the Marquess of Stoneville, needs a fianc'e fast or his autocratic grandmother is not only going to disinherit Oliver but his four siblings, too. Olivers plan to hire a fianc'e at one of Londons brothels quickly changes when he runs into Maria Butterfield. Not only is Maria an annoyingly outspoken commoner; she is American, which is enough to have Olivers grandmother quickly rescinding her decree. All Oliver has to do to secure Marias assistance is to help her find her own fianc', Nathan Hyatt, who vanished after arriving in London several weeks ago. There is just one small problem: once Oliver locates Marias fianc', he may find it difficult to let the lady go. The first in a captivating new Regency-set series by the always entertaining Jeffries, this tale has all of the authors signature elements: delectably witty dialogue, subtly nuanced characters, and scorching sexual chemistry between two perfectly matched protagonists.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2010, American Library Association.)
