I like it when youre excited for a book to come out and youre not in the least bit disappointed after you read it, in fact it is better than you imagined. This is how it is with Sabrina Jeffries new release How to Woo a Reluctant Lady #3 in the Hellions series.

Minerva's story.... She is the Gothic novelist who doesn't need to marry; she can take care of herself. But if she doesn't marry her Grandmother will cut not just her off but Minerva siblings as well and they do need the money.

Giles Master, barrister, rake, gambler, womanizer and spy. Has loved Minerva for a long time, but has never been in a position to claim her, and Minerva has been in love with him even longer, even after he broke her heart. She hasnt married because other men just dont measure up.

To thwart her Grandmothers plans Minerva advertises for a husband in a womans magazine. Hoping to show her irascible Grandmother just how silly it is to force her and her siblings to marry within the year or lose their inheritance. Giles is forced to declare himself before he loses her. Then he must convince Minerva he is the man for her after all.

This was a fun romp of a story, sassy dialogue, hot love scenes; it also brings you one step closer to solving the mystery that runs through all the Hellion series. I liked it is as all around fun read.

I thought this book a little slow. It just didn't keep my attention. It certainly didn't keep me up at night wanting to finish it. I did finish it but it was just ok.

I love they mystery of the murder that continues through this series. Can't wait to read the next book. I also like how we see glimpses of future story lines & a look back at past characters. Such as that Giles is brother to David from the last of the Heiress series. If you love Sabrina Jeffries you will love this book.

Almost didn't read this one based on reviews I have read but soooo glad I did. I loved the book. I found it very hard to put down and loved Minerva and Giles' love story. For me this was the best of the series so far!

I read this book before the first two and I liked it. After reading the first two, I read it again. I Loved it! I enjoyed the character build-up and the romance was unique. I love the irony. Minerva is trying to trick her grandmother into thinking she is engaged to the rakehell, Giles. And Giles wants to marry Miranda so she won't write about him in her books. He is tricking her into actual marriage! And the sex scenes are steamy! What more does a reader want?

When her grandmother demands that she and her siblings marry before the year is out or lose their inheritance, Lady Minerva Sharpe comes up with a plan to thwart her. Minerva will advertise for a husband and pick the one that her grandmother will surely forbid. She doesn't expect Giles Masters to show up on her doorstep. He was the man she had loved for years, until he hurt her.

Giles asks Minerva to stop using him as the basis of her villain in the gothic novels she writes. They come to an agreement. She will stop writing about him if he will agree to a fake engagement. Surely her grandmother will forbid her marriage to a rogue like him.

This was a fun book and another good installment in the Hellions of Halstead Hall series. I thought Giles and Minerva were a wonderful couple, and I enjoyed the story arc about her parents' deaths. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

This installment was disappointing. It felt like the writer didn't care about these characters, so didn't bother to give them a proper love story. Love scenes left MUCH to be desired; there was no chemistry! Did SJ just rush through this book to get it over with?

Good story in a good series. This is book three of the Hellions of Halstead Hall and the story of Minerva the older daughter. Minerva and Giles proved to be an intriguing team. Good characters, thorough and having sufficient depth. Plot could have been slightly more complex with a few additional twists, but it wasn't ordinary. Sexy and steamy in the right ways, touching and emotional in places.
