Review ~ Let Sleeping Rogues Lie by Sabrina Jeffries

Let Sleeping Rogues Lie by Sabrina Jeffries
Pocket Books

When Madeline Prescott took a teaching position at Mrs. Harris's School for Young Ladies, it was to help restore her father's reputation. Instead, she's in danger of ruining her own. The devilishly handsome Anthony Dalton, Viscount Norcourt, has agreed to provide "rake lessons" to Mrs. Harris's pupils so they can learn how to avoid unscrupulous gentlemen, and Madeline is to oversee his classes. She has always believed that attraction is a scientific matter, easily classified and controlled — until she's swept into the passionate desire that fiercely burns between her and Anthony. Nothing could be more illogical than risking everything for a dalliance with a rake — even one who's trying to behave himself. Yet nothing could be more tempting....

Available here:

My take?

She wants to resist. Resistance is futile. Okay, that's a cheesy line, but it's true--for the both of them. She wants to resist him because he's a rake. He's the bad guy. Kind of. He wants to resist her because he's got a lot of issues and she can't be trusted. Tony's going to teach the girls at the School for Heiresses how to be smart around rakes. One issue? He's a little too good at his job and she's got a weakness for...well, him.

I liked this book. I liked how she stuck up for him and how he chased her. So much for being the tough guy all the time. He's got issues. Good! Men who are all brawn and no problems are good, but Tony's got lots of extra dimensions to him. Madeline isn't a slouch either. She's got pluck and even if she's obsessed with the nitrous oxide party, she's got reason. 

If you're interested in an intriguing historical read, then this might be the book for you.

Hi Wendi,

Great review! I love Sabrina Jeffries books; she's an auto buy for me. There are times my muse NEEDS a good historical, ya know.
