    The Escape of the Angel of Death

    Lord Gabriel Sharpe's heart has been broken twice already in his very young life. The first time came with the mysterious death of his parents and then with the untimely death of his friend, Roger Waverly. In between all of this mind-numbing grief comes a challenge from Roger's sister to race "the needle's thread," a hair-raising course which turns into a single lane between boulders. Why would Gabe want to woo her but refuse her challenge? And what does his grandmother's meddling ultimatum have to do with her anger over who he chooses to marry?

    Gabe tells his grandmother he can't die, in a race or otherwise, because he is "the Angel of Death." She, of course, doesn't have a clue what that means and only ascribes it to his impetuous nature. He truly believes he was the one who should have died in place of his parents, something to do with a mysterious stranger who arrived at his home and took one of the family horses out the same day his parents died. He believes that insults and a coincidence of events led to his losses and that he is cheating death over and over and over.

    It is Virginia Waverly who throws all of Gabe's rational explanations to the wind little by little, that is until she hears a rumor that he is wooing her only for purposes of an inheritance he can only have upon being married. Another character, General Waverly, calls him out on his guilt about Roger's death. The provocative banter, wildly sexy scenes, and funny moments increase in various stages until one can feel the tension in more ways than one with every turned page!

    By now the passion between Gabe and Virginia is searing in intensity, attracting these two volatile characters to the point where Gabe realizes he must abandon all the machinations and woo for real! He must enter a race to win a great, passionate love beyond what words can convey! As always, Sabrina Jeffries tintilates and thrills the reader with both a mystery about to be solved and hot, steamy, sexy connection that must be fulfilled in order to finally cheat death for one last time! This fourth story is even better than Ms. Jeffries's previous novels in the Hellions of Halstead Hall series.

    Romancing the Book

    Reviewed By~Jen
    Review Copy Provided By~Nancy Breland Public Relations

    Sabrina Jeffries is one of my auto-reads. I absolutely love her writing and I've totally been enjoying her Hellions of Halstead Hall series. There are 5 siblings whose grandmother has decided that they all need to be married or she's going to write them out of her will. Each of them tries to avoid matrimony and even tries to make deals with grandma, but seeing as we're reading romance novels, we know it's going to end in happily ever after. In addition, there is another sub plot of trying to uncover the truth behind their parents' deaths.

    To Wed a Wild Lord is the fourth book in the series. Gabriel Sharpe's best friend, Roger, died in a racing accident and now Roger's sister, Virginia, is blaming Gabriel for his death and wants revenge. Gabriel's been living a wild life because he's been feeling guilty. They meet when Virgina challenges Gabe to a race, but he counters with a courtship. I enjoyed watching Gabe and Virginia butt heads and get over their individual guilt as they got to know each other and eventually fall in love.

    All the major players from the series make welcome appearances in this story as the over-arcing plots continue to advance. The stories have kept me intrigued... especially when it comes to the mystery of the Sharpe's parents. In fact, I can't wait for the release of the final book so that the mystery will finally be solved.

    highly recommend

    Sabrina Jeffries is a wonderful writer and I enjoyed the series she wrote on the Sharp family. I had to read all of the episodes and see how they met there spouses and how they settled down. There are many twists and turns in the book. The final book finally addresses the death of their parents.

    Another winner for Sabrina Jeffries! Let the Fireworks Begin!

    This is the story of Gabe (Lord Gabriel Sharpe) and Virginia Waverly. It's the 4th installment in Sabrina Jeffries' The Hellions of Halstead Hall Series... but it can be read on it's own; you do not need to have read the prior books in this series to enjoy this book... and enjoy it you will. Each one of these books seems to get better and they've all been very good.

    The premise of the series is that the children of Halstead Hall have been issued an ultimatum by their grandmother who holds the purse strings, that they must marry before the end of the year; All of them must marry for any of them to inherit. They've all been a bit on the wild side especially in light of the era in which they live.

    Gabe has become known as a daredevil as he races horses. In an unfortunate accident, Virginia's brother, who had been Gabe's best friend, died in a race with Gabe. Virginia challenges Gabe to a race to avenge her brother's death; and Gabe counter-challenges with a marriage proposal...
    Let the fireworks begin!!!!!!

    Highly Recommended.

    I love Sabrina Jeffries and this book did not let me down. Virginia is no whimpering Simpering woman, she takes control and knows what she wants. Gabe is the perfect man for her, but first they have to get over Virginia's distrust and dislike of him. It was a good read.

    An excellent addition to the Hellions of Halstead Hall series.

    Gabriel Sharpe loves to race and when he does he pushes it to the edge. Despite the death of his best friend while "threading the needle" during a race against him hasn't stopped him. But his grandmother's ultimatum to marry before the end of the year has forced his hand to make a decision. He'll offer marriage to Virginia Waverly, his best friend's sister, and absolve himself from the guilt from his part in his friend's death and give Virginia a home to live in. First he has to convince her she doesn't hate him or to insist that he race her.

    Virginia Waverly has hated Gabriel Sharpe since the death of her brother. She's blamed him for encouraging a drunk man to race and has waited for the day for his wicked ways to catch up with him. In an attempt to prove to him that he's not as good as he thinks he is, she challenges him to a race. What she doesn't count on is his stipulation to the race: if he wins, he can court her. If she wins, they'll race again on the track that cost her brother his life. Can she win against the Angel of Death when he pulls out all the stops?

    I adored both these characters. Victoria was a strong woman who has made the most out of the cards she's been dealt. She runs her grandfather's house and help with his stud farm without complaining. She figures this is the best it's going to get, she'll make the best out of it. While she's hated Gabriel because of her brother's death, she's not so blinded by that hate to figure out that Gabriel may not be the person she thinks he is. She was able to admit when she was wrong about him and admit that she wasn't truly happy with how she had been living either. Once Gabriel points that out to her, she realizes that he's the only person that truly see her.

    Gabriel is one of those characters you want to shake to knock some sense into him, hug to soothe all that hurts him and jump on to have your wicked way with him all at once. He's wonderfully complex and makes you want to dig through his layers to get to the squishy center. He carries the weight of the insecurities that have developed since the death of his parents and the guilt of having a hand in the death of this best friends. He fears love because everything he loves is stripped away from him. It takes a strong woman to stand up to him and show him it's ok to let go of the past and look forward.

    In addition to Gabe and Victoria's story, we delve deeper into the mystery of the death of the Sharpe parents. Seems something wicked was afoot at Halstead Hall nineteen years ago. Can't wait for the completion of that sub-plot in Celia's story.
