Anthony Dalton, Viscount Norcourt,
learned at a very young age that trying to mold himself to
please others gained him nothing but disappointment. So in
accordance with this lesson, Anthony has lived his life so far
without regard for what society thinks. However, when
Anthony’s brother unexpectedly dies, Anthony finds himself in
the unenviable position of having to prove that he is a fit
guardian for a young girl against his uncle, Sir Randolph
Madeline Prescott is a valued teacher at
Mrs. Harris' School for Young Ladies which has enabled her to
continue the crusade to prove her father innocent of murder
and restore his reputation as a doctor. When Lord Norcourt
walks into the school looking to enroll his niece, Madeline
sees an opportunity for both of them to achieve their ends.
Lord Norcourt can help her by providing access to the leading
minds of the time in exchange for Madeline’s insuring his
niece’s acceptance in Mrs. Harris’ school.
But as the stakes get higher and Madeline
discovers that Anthony is more than he seems – will she dare
confide in him that they share the same adversary?
As the fourth book in the School for
Heiresses series, Let Sleeping Rogues Lie is
a wonderful continuation to a fun regency romance series. In
this installment the rogue in question is Anthony Dalton – an
“unrepentant” rakehell that delights in seducing women.
However, as his true character is unveiled we see that he is
truly a man of feeling and honor who has adopted the façade of
an uncaring seducer to hide his vulnerabilities. Madeline is
not the usual heroine with her mind’s scientific bent,
unstoppable curiosity and uncanny knowledge of biology. As a
woman of common sense, Madeline is the perfect foil for
Anthony as they find in each other the balance they need to
have a happy life. When Madeline and Anthony finally come
together – watch out, it just might singe you! Sabrina
Jeffries has penned another fun and sexy romance that is not
to be missed. Pick up Let Sleeping Rogues Lie
for a wonderfully entertaining read that will charm you from
start to finish!
