About The Book

With her signature “sense of humor and delightfully delicious sensuality” (Romantic Times Book Reviews), New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries continues the sizzling Hellions of Halstead Hall series following the dark, dangerous, and dashing Lord Gabriel Sharpe.

Daredevil Lord Gabriel Sharpe knows he must marry in order to inherit his grandmother’s inheritance. But he does not expect his chance at marriage would appear in the feisty form of Virginia Waverly.

Ever since her brother died racing Lord Gabriel, Virginia has yearned to get her revenge by beating him at his own game. But when she challenges him to a race, Gabriel counters with a marriage proposal. After all, he knows Virginia is in dire financial straits—so why not marry her and solve both of their problems?

Virginia insists she’s appalled by his proposal, but her response to his scorching kisses says otherwise. And when the two of them begin to unravel the truth behind her brother’s death, Gabriel takes the greatest gamble of all, offering the courageous beauty something more precious than any inheritance—true love.
