Description

With two months left to find a husband and fulfill her grandmother's ultimatum, Celia sets her sights on three eligible bachelors. Becoming betrothed to one of these wealthy, high-ranking men will surely prove her capable of getting married, so hopefully the wedding itself won't be necessary for Celia to receive her inheritance. Step Two of her audacious plan is hiring the dark and dangerously compelling Bow Street runner Jackson Pinter to investigate the three men she's chosen.

With Lady Celia bedeviling Jackson's days and nights, the last thing he wants is to help her find a husband. And when she recalls shadowed memories that lead his investigation into her parents' mysterious deaths in a new direction, putting her in danger, Jackson realizes the only man he wants Celia to marry is himself  !

About the author

Sabrina Jeffries is the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of several Regency-set historical romance series, including the Royal Brotherhood, the School for Heiresses, the Hellions of Halstead Hall, the Duke’s Men, and the Sinful Suitors. When she’s not writing in a coffee-fueled haze, she’s traveling with her husband, caring for her adult autistic son, or indulging in one of her passions: jigsaw puzzles, chocolate, music, and costume parties. With more than nine million books in print in twenty 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.

    Well, it is a charming rift on the usual "must marry or will lose inheritance" meme, though in this case our heroine is the youngest, and the only unmarried sibling (because this is apparently one in a series of get-them-married-off regencies by Jeffries). The heroine is likeable and can shoot; is crippled by self esteem issues and that moment in her innocent past, etc. Personally, I'd have preferred the ending with more assertiveness on our heroine's part. You've got a lot of the typical themes, a bit of a mystery about the death of heroine's parents, a gorgeous house, not enough description of food (come on, Regency writers, you must describe the food and the clothing in detail! Did I not make this clear with the universe?) Erotic scenes are mildly hot (sort of like those canned chile peppers, you know; there's heat but they don't burn you up). Our writer sensibly refrains from the naming of the parts, pretty much (well, there may some "most secret and unexplored" place on heroine's lovely bod). The hero is quite likeable and convincing as well, and should others by this writer make their ways to me I will have my way with them.

    This is one of those books I wouldn't recommend buying unless you are going to buy all five books. I did and it's one of those series that keeps the reader invested. The romance was good but the mystery surrounding the Hellions' parents was really well done. Usually I can figure out who did before it's revealed but I had no idea who the killer was and felt like it was wrapped up in a very satisfyng way.

    Reviewed by JenReview copy provided by authorI'm a longtime fan of Ms Jeffries and have loved her Hellions of Halstead Hall series. I'm sorry to see this series end, but loved the journey and the conclusion. A Lady Never Surrenders is the love story between the youngest sibling, Celia, and the Bow Street Runner, Jackson, who has been hired by Celia's family to investigate their parent's deaths. Over the course of the series, we've seen Celia and Jackson butt heads and it continues in this novel. However, all that fighting is just covering up deep seated feelings that finally bust forth. And really the only obstacle to the happy ending is Jackson's belief that he's not good enough for Celia. Other than the love story, the mystery that arced the series finally concludes. As the series progressed, we learned tidbits of how each of the siblings remembered the events surrounding their parent's deaths. Because this is the last book in the series, we know the mystery must be solved. And it is. However, for me it was a confusing conclusion. I think the murderer came completely out of left field and I wasn't terribly satisfied with the explanation. But that said, I really did enjoy this book and highly recommend this series to fans or regency romance. This series is best read in order due to the plot that flowed throughout, but it can stand alone.
