The third sizzling romance in the Hellions of Hallstead Hall series, from New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries, follows a fiercely independent woman as she schemes to avoid an arranged marriage...but she may lose her heart in the process.
Lady Minerva Sharpe's grandmother has a life-changing ultimatum for her inheritance---get married. But Lady Minerva believes she's come up with the perfect plan---embark on a fake engagement to a notorious rogue. Surely her grandmother would rather release her inheritance than have her married to a scoundrel. She just has to find one to play the part.
Luckily, there's the wild barrister Giles Masters, the same man who has haunted her thoughts since he kissed her on her nineteenth birthday. Of course, she has no intention of falling for such a rake, much less marrying him. But soon, their fake betrothal leads to very real desire.
An untputdownable romance, How to Woo a Reluctant Lady "is richly imbued with steamy passion, deftly spiced with dangerous intrigue, and neatly tempered with just the right amount of tart wit" (Booklist).

Sabrina Jeffries is the New York Times bestselling author of over 50 novels and works of short fiction (some written under the pseudonyms Deborah Martin and Deborah Nicholas). Whatever time not spent writing in a coffee-fueled haze of dreams and madness is spent traveling with her husband and adult autistic son or indulging in one of her passions---jigsaw puzzles, chocolate, and music. With over 9 million books in print in 21 different languages, the North Carolina author never regrets tossing aside a budding career in academics for the sheer joy of writing fun fiction, and hopes that one day a book of hers will end up saving the world. She always dreams big.
