Product Description

Amazon Review

Just what is it about bad boys that women find so irresistible? In Sabrina Jeffries' A Notorious Love, follow-up to A Dangerous Love, readers again encounter Lady Helena Laverick who has committed "Mrs Nunley's Guide to Etiquette for Young Ladies" to memory. But even the oh-so-proper Lady Helena can't help but notice Daniel Brennan's impressive dimensions when he answers her knock on his door dressed only in his underwear. What business does a gently reared young lady have with the disreputable son of a highwayman?

Only the most dire circumstances could persuade Lady Helena to renew her acquaintance with that scoundrel Brennan, but her youngest sister has run away with a fortune hunter and Helena needs Daniel to help her find the young couple before it's too late. As a retired smuggler and Helena's brother-in-law's former man of business, Daniel knows how to get thing s done and his upbringing makes him ideally suited to this particular mission. Of course, Daniel could travel a lot faster if he didn't have Helena with him, if he didn't need to fight his attraction to her every step of the way. But Helena is determined to help find her sister, and maybe--if she's totally honest--experience a little adventure along the way. Even if that means she has to put up with the provoking Daniel!

As always, Jeffries never disappoints her audience with her trademark blend of sensuality and humour as Daniel and Helen a learn to look past their many differences and discover their sizzling affinity for each other. This reader can't wait for the next instalment from Sabrina Jeffries! --Alison Trinkle, Amazon.com

Synopsis

In the sequel to A Dangerous Love, proper Lady Helena Laverick joins forces with roguish former smuggler Daniel Brennan to find her runaway young sister, but as the two mismatched and reluctant allies masquerade as husband and wife to protect Helena's reputation, they find the pretense has become al

This book starts where 'A notorious love' finishes. It is the story of Rosalind's elder sister Helena. Not set in the drawing rooms and balls of the upperclass but more of an adventure story . As usual Ms. Jeferies story is refreshing, humorous and contains great sex scenes! Daniel Brennan does not have the usual background for a romantic hero but he is compelling, attractive and sincere nontheless. Lady Helena is not perfect either but the two of them learn a lesson in love, having great fun on the way. I heartily recommend all of the author's books and feel her style is the way forward for all Regency Romances. So come on ladies, wake up to Sabrina Jeffries.

If you enjoy a bit of lighthearted fun and a giggle when you read a book, this is for you. I totally disagree with those who say it is unbelievable. I believe that when you read romance you need to not take it too seriously because romance is fairytale.
Yes the main character is a male tart but he is a loveable one and with his background and feelings "which is explained in the book" you can understand why. The leading lady is not perfect but with her sharp tongue and prudish ways, but again you can understand why she is attracted to him.
This book is good fun and for us who dream of a hero, so read it and make up your own mind.

I think if you are going to be reading romance novels then you should know that it is basically fantasy, and not to be taken too seriously so I did not have a problem on whether the plot was believable or not. I liked both Daniel and Helena when they appeared as supporting characters in "A Dangerous Love" and really, their courtship starts in that book -- it just melted my heart how sweet Daniel was to Helena in that book so of course I had to read the one in which they are the main characters! So this one continues their story after Rosalind and Griff go on their honeymoon.

The main theme of "A Notorious Love" is that love, as well as people, come in all shapes and sizes. I don't think it strange at all that Helena would be attracted to Daniel -- they might be opposites on the surface but really they are essentially in the same situation: both have been tolerated but mostly cast off from the "refined" society. In Daniel's case, it's because of his unfortunate upbringing and in Helena's case it's her physical limitations. Both of them have dealt with this rejection and unfair judgement by either flouting the rules (in Daniel's case) or hiding behind a cold reserve and adhering to strict etiquette by following a book of rules on it as Helena has done. Although they both know that the reasons society have judged them "lacking" are shallow and ridiculous, the treatment they get nevertheless affects the way they perceive their self worth. So it's no surprise that both would be more disposed to looking beneath the surface and be able to appreciate the person for who they are and help each other to accept it as well. All they needed was the excuse to spend more time together and what could be better than the abduction of Juliet?

I liked it.

By Judge Tabor TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 20 Jan. 2015

We were introduced to Daniel Brennan and Helena Laverick in the first book in this series, A Dangerous Love, where Daniel had pretended to be Griff Knighton while Griff tried to undermine the Earl of Swanlea's plans for his future. In that book, there were sparks between Daniel and Helena, but it blew up in Daniel's face once Helena found out he was playing the family false by going along with Griff's maneuverings.

Poor Daniel never fully agreed with Griff's goings on and tried to do his best to halt Griff at every turn. But, alas, he did go along to a point and when Helena realized Daniel had been paid to pretend to be Griff, she's certain Daniel is a scoundrel of the first order, which he is - kinda. He's the bastard son of a famous highwayman who was hanged alongside Daniel's mother, leaving Daniel in a workhouse at the age of six.

Daniel was rescued from that workhouse, took a job with a gang of smugglers and finally broke away to make his way in the world at age 17. Since that time, he's become a funds manager with clients ranging from Cits to members of the aristocracy. He no longer works for Griff and has taken his funds management business full time. Helena has come to London seeking Daniel's help to track down Juliet. It seeems she's eloped with a Captain Morgan and since Griff and Rosalind are traveling on the Continent, Helena hopes Daniel will agree to help her find Juliet.

Daniel considers Helena to be haughty and an ice maiden, but he can't refuse to help her. Helena, although beautiful, is extremely self-conscious due to being lame from a bout with the polio. She was jilted by one gentleman and has grown a shell around her soul to keep from being hurt. Daniel is just amazing in that he has so much insight into women and what makes them tick.
