Review: To Wed a Wild Lord

To Wed a Wild Lord
To Wed a Wild Lord by Sabrina Jeffries
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another successful book in Sabrina Jeffries Hellion’s series. The more of this series I read, the more I adore it. Perhaps it’s because, like in the book, I am married to a man who lost his father at a young age and I have seen first hand the effect it has had over his life. It has been interesting to watch how each child dealt with their grief and how difficult it was for them to overcome it, even almost 20 years later, to take a chance at finding and pursuing love.

For Gabe, he chose recklessness and fearlessness to hide his pain, even more so after losing his best friend while racing him. It is at first his guilt, that he was the cause of Roger’s death, that brought him and Virginia together. If you recall Virginia challenged him to a race at the end of the previous book.

But Gabe quickly sees that with Virginia there is more than just guilt between them and he strives to become worthy of her. So much so that he admits to having no memory of the night the race with her brother Roger was challenged and in the end taking on another challenge from Chetwin in order to discover the truth. And the truth does come out in the end. I it also finally discovered that the Sharpe’s parents were murdered and the long ago concocted story is truly false.

Gabe and Virginia are sweet characters, each being able to see beneath the surface to what is in side. To see the parts of each other that many overlook or take for granted. I was very drawn to Virginia because she is a lot like myself, or as Gabe describes her “Who knew that beneath the crisp linen and starched apron lay so much velvet and lace?”.

The book is an easy, fast paced story that will draw the reader deeper into the Sharpe’s world and leave you clamoring to read the next installment.
