Book two in the Lords trilogy and just as good as the first book. This is the story of Jordan Willis, the Earl of Blackmore and Emily Fairchild, the daughter if tge country rector. How they meet and what happens after they meet makes for a dynamite story. The story held my interest; the characters were all well developed and interesting and the ending was excellent. You just know Jordan has a big hand in the downfall and slow ruination of the villain only because there was no way to actually expose the villain for what he was and what he did. This story earns a 5-star rating from me. Another must read for all Jeffries fans.
Not my fave by sabrina jeffries but a pleasant read
I enjoyed this 2nd book in the trilogy ... not quite as much as the first book, but it was still very good!
Sabrina Jeffries writes very well-researched books, yet you never feel as if she's jamming the information down your throat.
A young woman, to save her life, is forced into a masquerade. The Forbidden Lord recognizes her nonetheless, and tries to rescue her form the trap. I really liked the heroine--usually I hav trouble relating to women who are so very trapped as a plot device. In this case, it worked very nicely.
I wasn't all that impressed with this story. The plot device of Emily being forced to masquerade as Lady Emma just didn't work for me. In fact, the whole storyline didn't work for me. It just felt weak and formulaic. Not one of Ms. Jeffries better efforts.
Put a big smile on my face . . . just recently became a Jeffries' reader . . . am now a HUGE fan!
I really enjoyed this story, almost as much as I enjoyed the first book in the lord trilogy (the pirate lord). The heroine is just the right mix of both innocent and sweet, but feisty as well. The hero is somewhat arrogant but in the end, you love him too. A really good read; it's definitely going on my keeper shelf.
A young innocent rector's daughter got one kiss one night from the cynical Earl of Blackmore, Jordan Willis. Now she is being blackmailed into playing the flirty scottish niece of her village's lord. The daughter of his sister, who married a scottish laird who is now protecting his daughter who tried to run away to get married. He wants Emily to find the suitor so he can "deal" with him.
Lord Willis knows there is something familiar about Lady Emma, but he can't get her to admit to being Miss Emily, but he desperatly still wants her. So he sets about wooing her, Emily is falling in love, but can't tell him the truth. He is an Earl, and therefore forbidden to her. But an Earl can marry wherever he wishes, can't he?
Second book in the trilogy, Jordan's story.
Another winner from Sabrina Jeffries! Her romances are the best.
Book #2 in the Lord trilogy. I found this one hard to get into the story but once you do, it does keep you on edge. I loved the get what you deserve ending and looking forward to the final book. Another good book from Sabrina Jeffries.
