AN AMAZON BEST OF THE MONTH SELECTION
Three childhood friends dare to defy the rules of London—and love—in this glittering series from New York Times bestselling author Jane Feather . . .
A FLAWED CUT . . .
The Honorable Miss Fenella Grantley has a secret: she’s been taking drama classes and longs to be an actress. Ladies of her standing don’t appear on stage, but Fenella has never been one for society’s rules. She’s quite excited to take on the challenge of reading the leading role in a new play—until she meets the playwright. Toeing the line between infuriating and irresistible, his first impression leaves a lot to be desired . . .
OR A RARE FIND?
Edward Tremayne, illegitimate son of the Earl of Pendleton, scorned the ton years ago, making his own way in the world, and pursuing his literary gifts on the side. The only thing he misses from his old world is Fenella. Since seeing her at a ball when she was a young debutante, he’s never forgotten her. Now that fate has reunited them, Edward’s determined to make her his leading lady—in every way. But the only thing they see eye to eye on is their intense passion for each other. And it just may take a massive misunderstanding for their love to get on the same precious page . . .

I have read almost everything that this amazing author has read and loved them all. The premise of this story had the heroine, Fenella, venturing out on her own to secretly take acting lessons and that brings her in contact with the playwright, Edward Tremayne. She soon realizes she remembers seeing him several times at dances and he was the one standing against the wall glaring. Edward had never forgotten Fenella either. The journey begins of two strong willed people who clash constantly but are attracted in spite of it or maybe because of it. Edward wanted her to be the main roll in his play. but they definately set out on the wrong foot. But he is determined to have her in more ways than one.. Well drawn characters, strong emotions, a mystery, sizzling romance and a lot of twist and turns with humor thrown in, bring this tale full circle and have you guessing if these two will ever work it out! Simply a must read! Lori D
Seduce Me With Sapphires is my first book by Jane Feather, it won't be my last. Ms. Feather has provided readers with an excellent historical romance. This book is well-written and populated with an outstanding cast of characters. Fenella is a bit of a color-changing sapphire, a different personality shift for different people she's with. Edward is the Tremayne born on the wrong side of the blanket and works doing research and writes plays. Fenella and Edward's story is loaded with drama, humor, sizzle and just a little action. I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading my next book by Jane Feather. Seduce Me With Sapphires is book 2 of The London Jewels Trilogy but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Although I have read the previous book in this series, the opening of this book felt like I was picking it up midway. Fenella meets Edward, a man she suspects has stalked her, and proceeds to sleep with him after a few days! Fenella is shockingly independent for the times and Edward sometimes comes off as creepy. I did enjoy the secondary characters and look forward to seeing what happens with them. I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley for my honest review.
