The Study of Seduction
by Sabrina Jeffries

A marriage of convenience ignites into a passionate love
affair in the hotly anticipated second novel in New York
and USA TODAY bestselling author Sabrina
Jeffries’s addictive Sinful Suitors series!

When Edwin Barlow, the Earl of Blakeborough, agrees to help
his best friend’s impetuous ward, Lady Clarissa
Lindsey, in her time of need, he knows he’s in for
trouble. He’s been hunting for someone to wed, and
she’ll just get in the way. Although captivated by the
witty, free-spirited beauty, he fears she’d be all
wrong as a wife…if she would even take such a gruff
cynic for her husband. Yet he wants nothing more than to
have her for his own.

Clarissa has no intention of
marrying anyone—not Edwin, whom she’s sure would
be an overbearing husband, and certainly not the powerful
French diplomat stalking her. But when matters escalate with
the diplomat, she chooses Edwin’s gallant offer of a
marriage between friends in hopes that it will deter her
stalker. She expects nothing more than an amiable union, but
their increasingly tempestuous kisses prove more than she
bargained for. When her stalker’s vow to expose the
lovers’ deepest secrets threatens to destroy their
blossoming attraction, will their tenuous bond withstand
public ruin, or will Edwin lose all that’s important
to him to protect his bride?

Sabrina Jeffries' Bio

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.
