Scandal erupts when the news hits that
world famous magician Diego Montalvo wants to build a
pleasure garden Ė right on the estate bordering Mrs.
Harrisís School for Young Ladies! Lucinda Seton, a graduate
of Mrs. Harrisís school who is temporarily teaching there,
is determined to stop him. What Lucy doesnít know is that
the pleasure garden is only a ruse. Diegoís real mission is
to fulfill a bargain and return a long-lost Spanish heiress
to her grandfather and heíll use every trick in his book to
do so. But when Diego learns that Lucy is the heiress he
seeks, heís troubled by the realization that he, the great
conjurer, has fallen under her spell. Yet when Lucy
learns the truth, will their blossoming relationship be able
to survive Diegoís deception?
Sabrina Jeffries proves that love is no
illusion in this enchanting addition to her already
phenomenal School for Heiresses series. Donít Bargain
with the Devil is one of the most delightful books
Iíve read all year with a hero and heroine I fell in love
with right from the start. Lucy is an absolute delight.
Sheís honest, straightforward, and has a lively charm that
seems to leap off the page. Lucy is, quite simply,
impossible not to like and one of the reasons Donít
Bargain with the Devil was so absorbing was that I
was truly eager to see her get her happily ever after with
Diego. As for the master magician himself, Diego is
supremely sensual and he won my heart because he not only
sees Lucy for who she truly is, he loves her for it. What
also endeared me to Diego is his strong sense of honor and
how that warred with him trying to fulfill his bargain to
bring Lucy to Spain.
Iím a huge fan of Ms. Jeffriesís work,
and Donít Bargain with the Devil proves why.
Itís a lively, beautifully written romance that left me
feeling completely satisfied and eager for more. By the end
of the book, Ms. Jeffries had me on the edge of my seat,
waiting for the final book of the series, Charlotte and
ďCousin MichaelísĒ tale, Wed Him Before You Bed Him.
