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

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.
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. It was heart wrenching and funny at times, but always sincere. Both characters are not the usual hero and heroine (like a dark, bitter lord or a perfect lady)but all of the characteristics that make a great person are there, and that makes it a refreshing read for me.
The son of a highwayman, yet a former worker of her brother in law, Griff, she knows he has the skills to get Juliet back. Daniel agrees to help her, but isn't happy she's tagging along. Not because he doesn't like her. In fact, it's the complete opposite. Daniel has long been attracted to Helena, but believes he's beneath her, as she's a lady and his past doesn't make him enough of a gentleman to ask for her hand. Yet throughout their journey together, they must fight their growing desire for each other.
I read this story after 'After the Abduction,' which is the story between Juliet and Sebastian/Morgan, so I already knew what happened to Juliet in this story. This story wasn't quite as enjoyable as Juliet's story. It reminds me a lot of another story by the same author, with Jackson Pinter (a Bow Street Runner) and Lady Celia, who desired each other, but Jackson thought he wasn't good enough for her. I should have enjoyed it more, since it's quite similar and I really liked Jackson and Celia's story, but felt as if something was lacking in this one.
Also, the book I received didn't have the same cover as what's shown on Amazon. Amazon need to update this.

ok, I understand that the hero is not a nobleman and that he didn't talk like one- but he kept referring to his penis as his 'pego' 'st peter' and...Read more
