Filled with New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries’s signature charm and wit, this novella in the hugely popular Sinful Suitors series is sure to tempt you!
Widow Meriel Vyse is stunned speechless when someone tries to abduct her on her way to a ball. Fortunately, Quinn Raines, her secret beau, shows up to foil the attack. Unfortunately, as the two of them are struggling with her abductor, Meriel accidentally stabs Quinn with a knife.
Unbeknownst to Meriel, Quinn set up the fake abduction so he could play the hero and win her hand in marriage. But now that his plan has gone disastrously awry, can he convince her that he’s still the man for her?
Sabrina Jeffries brings her famous “quick pacing, witty dialogue, and charmingly original characters” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) to this enchanting romance.
A Talent for Temptation is a great, quick read. I loved Meriel. She pushes the envelope for that time period, but still has the same fears most people have…not being good enough or worthy of a person’s love.
And Quinn! He’s so completely clueless, and it’s adorable. He has no idea what Meriel is up to when she has to cancel plans at the last minute.
Overall, this was a fun, flirty, and sexy novella. I read it quickly, and was bummed when it was over.
