The Dangerous Lord by Sabrina Jeffries
Rated 3.5 out of 5 White Roses.
Content rated with the Pale Pink Rose.
Who doesn’t want a man with a little danger attached to his name?
Ian Lennard, Viscount St. Clair is a very private man who has always kept his name out of the gossip columns… that is, until recently. Here he is, in desperate need of a wife and about to take the plunge into matrimonial doom, when some fool by the name of Lord “X” decides to spread rumors about him. No one makes a fool of Ian Lennard, not without facing the consequences.
All Felicity Taylor wanted to do was prevent her friend from marrying an unscrupulous rake who would no doubt be unfaithful in their marriage. She thought she was successful when she heard of a broken engagement. But never did she think of the possibility of the Viscount finding out who she really was.
Felicity Taylor cost Ian Lennard a wife, and in Ian’s eyes, she’s the perfect person to fill in the role of the bride.
Sabrina Jeffries always makes a book fun. She just has a way of bringing her readers into the story and The Dangerous Lord is by no means an exception. What’s sadly lacking in this read however, is the quality of the story that makes it memorable. You can read it, you can and will no doubt enjoy it, but once you’re done with it, you’re just done.
Ian is the misunderstood hero while Felicity is the heroine with an unreasonable dislike for him (at first). Her prejudice against him can make her a tad annoying at times but at least she’s a character that doesn’t remain stagnant and actually learns from her mistakes and grows. So while there’s good writing and character development, the main thing negative is that the characters don’t stand out from the multitude of romance novels.
