Review

"One luscious romance filled with sensuous moments that will make your heart beat a little faster." The Oakland Press, MI

From the Author

The final book in the popular Lord trilogy!
For those who've read THE FORBIDDEN LORD, this is the spin-off featuring Jordan's best friend Ian as the hero. Since Ian is a bit secretive and not looking for love, I had lots of fun creating his heroine. Felicity is the one woman who would bedevil him--a gossip columnist writing about HIM. It doesn't take long, however, before she's brought him to his knees . . . and proposing marriage, to boot!

"The Dangerous Lord" is an entertaining story set in London and the English countryside in 1820. Felicity Taylor is an attractive young lady fallen on hard times after her father's untimely death. In order to earn her living and support her four younger brothers she writes society gossip for her column in The Evening Gazette under the pseudonym of "Lord X". Ian Lennard, the Viscount St. Clair is one of the victims of this highly critical column and he wants to confront Lord X and make him stop publicly speculating about his mysterious past. He is a very handsome young gentleman surrounded by lots of mystery and notorious gossip. He urgently needs an heir and therefore he is looking for a suitable wife. Lord X's scandalous gossip makes it nearly impossible for him to find a well-bred young lady willing to marry him. When he finds out that Lord X is a head-strong young woman, he is furious but strangely attracted to her at the same time. He cannot keep her out of his mind and he vows to win their battle of wills. Felicity is just as stubborn and her opinion of Ian is the worst ever possible. She considers him a notorious debaucher but how hardly she tries she cannot ignore the disturbing feelings his powerful charm awakens in her. Both leading protagonists are intelligent and loyal people scared of losing their hearts and scared of showing their deep emotions. The author delivers an exciting and colourful battle of the sexes supported by witty dialogues not only by the leading couple but by the numerous secondary characters as well. Readers who have read Ms. Jeffries' previous "Lord" books will welcome meeting many of their heros and heroines in this one too.
THE DANGEROUS LORD is a fascinating historical romance because it fully captures the reader's interest and keeps it until the end.Although the plot is not the newest but Ms. Jeffries's lively characters and their deep and witty conversations make it a first-class piece of work of the genre.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
For those who like Regency romances of the ilk that abound on bookshelves, 'The Dangerous Lord' is satisfying. The story of a mysterious viscount with a murky past clashing swords (figuratively, fortunately) with a hard-up young spinster is nothing new. Neither are any of the situations, settings, behaviours or conclusions of the book. Still it's an enjoyable and easy read with two endearing characters, a host of side-characters who are also good (evidently there have been previous novels in this group, although I hadn't read them and that didn't seem to matter) and a few minor mysteries to bring to light.

For those who like serious Regencies with great historicity (such as those by Georgette Heyer, Laura Kinsale and, to some extent, Mary Balogh) this book isn't for you. Like most Regencies published today our characters speak American English, behave far too freely and unguardedly (in this book people are on first-name terms very quickly with people they've just met) and talk about their feelings in a most un-British way. You're really reading a modern love story set in a different time and era which gives it a little more piquancy - and gives the whole concept of honour and ruin more force - but doesn't really feel fully at home in that era.

As in most of these books there's a Big Misunderstanding. It's actually a rather annoying Big Misunderstanding as Felicity, our heroine, seems to disbelieve something Ian the viscount has told her multiple times whereas she believes other things about him when their truth becomes apparent. It's sort-of necessary for the plot but wasn't entirely convincing to me. Then when the really big dark secret comes out - one that I think was actually fairly significant - she's so in love she just brushes it off. Surprising, but there you go.

I've read quite a few of Sabrina Jeffries books, but this is my favourite. I love the idea, which is that the heroine is writing a gossip column, and starts writing about the hero, calling him Lord X. He can't stand for that, and wants to find out who is behind the scurrilous rumours that are appearing about him in the papers. The hero and heroine are both likeable, and the book draws you in as the secret of the heroine's identity unfolds. It has plenty of humour, plenty of sex, and is plenty of fun!

i loved this book & especially the hero because the author was not afraid to give him some negative traits so he seemed real & down to earth.i loved the way she developed the story & characters so it kept you wanting to read the next page without getting bored. i will now buy many more of her books. i also thought dangerous lord was brilliant.

it could so easily have been a 5 star read, it just missed the mark slightly. Actually one I paid for, and it was worth the spend.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've read quite a few historical romances where the plot involves the heroine writing articles for some tawdry Regency gossip rag or another....she tends to almost always have something of an obsession with the hero, zeroing in on him and then tormenting the poor man with the sharp inky tip of her quill! Well, Dangerous Lord is no different there except perhaps the obsession part. I really have enjoyed so much of Sabrina Jeffries work and after reading the reviews for Dangerous Lord I thought it was a sure thing....but it just didn't quite hit "the mark".

Our leading man Ian Lennard, Viscount St. Clair, has the all makings of a great romantic hero- he's an intelligent, tall, lean, dark and dangerous war hero who also happens to be wealthy, titled AND half Spanish to boot but he just failed to light my wick for some reason. I feel it was perhaps something in his uninspiring dialogue throughout a lot of the book, his distance from his friends, his overly incensed reaction to Lord X's column, his endless mystery, his almost desperate need for a wife (we know he HAS to marry but come on!) and the fact that you as the reader just don't really get to see his character unfold with any great depth or sparkle and so you can't really develop any empathy for him and it's frustrating when he won't just open up and tell his story when constantly asked to. It's a shame because so much about the writing and the story is really good. The heroine Felicity Taylor is better written than our hero but it's her fabulously eccentric household that constantly brought a smile to my face- her bossy and forthright snowy haired housekeeper, her serious and scholarly twelve year old brother and her three younger brothers...
