5+ stars – Historical/Regency Romance

Wow! What an utterly delightful gem this turned out to be! I absolutely loved, loved, loved it!

One Night With a Prince is such a fun, sexy, witty, steamy, entertaining, emotional, and engaging romance, and the H/h make a saucy, amusing, and unforgettable couple with magnetic chemistry in spades. “Prince of Sin” Gavin Byrne reminded me a little of Derek Craven from Dreaming of You by Lisa Kleypas (one of my all-time favorite romantic heroes) because of his br

I really loved this book! I won't get into the plot, as GR has done a good job of describing it, except that the hero and heroine pretend to be lovers so they can get into a house party in the country and steal some letters from their host.

I really liked the way Jeffries described how their initial attraction transformed from lust to love. They started to know each other better, came to care and then fell in love. It was realistic and it was done in a good pace. In fact, everything was timed as

(3.75 stars, but as a personal rule, I round down.)

One Night with a Prince was a really engrossing read. I was only a few pages in when I found myself getting swept away by the potent sexual tension between Byrne and Christabel. Damn. This book was hot as hell, I tell you.

The writing was great—as expected from Ms. Sabrina Jeffries—and the characters were likeable. Christabel's definitely my idea of an amazing heroine. Strong-willed, kick-ass, and fierce, she wasn't scared of fighting for what sh

Very good romance and both main characters!

Since the beginning I just knew that Gavin will fall for Christabel! LOL

And he has a very good reason to! Christabel is a very good heroine: she's ready to do everything to save her father and, as a by blow, the regent. She's compassionate too and she soon realizes that Gavin's thirst for vengance is what makes him bitter and unfeeling.

When she glimpses Gavin's soul, she falls for him too and manages to redeam him with only logic. It was brilliantly don

One Night With A Prince, the final book in the Royal Brotherhood trilogy, was wickedly delicious, brimming with scandal, and starred a hero that was devilishly handsome and sinfully charming... 5 stars!!!!

The first time Gavin Byrne met Christabel she shot at him and put a hole in his hat and in his cabriolet. She was unlike any other woman Gavin had met. She was tough and didn't let people run over her and she stood her ground. But once she and Gavin made a deal to be partners in retrieving some

This the third book in Sabrina Jeffries's "Royal Brotherhood Series", One Night With A Prince is the first and only one I’ve read so far in that series. A regency, this is Gavin Byrne’s story- one of the bastard son’s of The Prince of Wales.

Never acknowledged by his royal father, Byrne pulled himself up from the slums of England to be a wealthy and powerful owner of a gambling club....

Okay, we’ve seen that before, (LISA KLEYPAS) but I must admit I found I liked this tale.

The plot is tight, the character development very good and the h/h are a delight to know. I was cheering them on in the bedroom, at the card tables, and in matters of the heart.

Now off to order book 1 and 2 and see what the other by blows have in store for this reader.

I also feel the need to learn all there is to know of the game whist. So off to google!
5.00+ Stars - Regency/Historical Romance!

Thanks a lot to Cheryl, whose beautiful review made me finally start this amazing book!

When I first had this one, I thought hell, another rake’s story with a hero who must love to disrupt female sensibilities with his sometimes corny unremorseful flirtatious skills, who gambles emotions away with an excuse of an unacceptable tortured past. But God I was so gloriously wrong! I might have just outlined the story’s one subtle version, but I skipped the part

Fans of Ms. Jeffries' ROYAL BROTHERHOOD SERIES have been waiting for the story of Gavin Byrne, one of three half-brothers who are the sons of England's Prince Regent. These half-noble brothers have gotten into all types of scrapes, known countrywide as notorious rogues-in their personal lives as much as their professional ones. The series began with Alexander Black, Earl of Iversley, in the book IN THE PRINCE'S BED. Second brother Marcus North, Viscount Draker, had his story told in TO PLEASURE ...more

This is my third Sabrina Jeffries book, and by far my favorite! I loved both the hero and the heroine in this one. Usually, there is one of the main characters that I like more, but this time around I couldn't have made a choice between the two!
Christabel was a breath of fresh air! She didn't care what society thought about her, only about doing what was right. I particularly liked that she was ready, willing, and able to defend herself. (view spoiler)

Gavin adalah tipe badboy idaman para wanita!

Tapi bagaimanapun juga hati ku sudah di miliki oleh Draker lol

Novel penutup Royal Brotherhood yang mengesankan, ringan, 'cukup panas', cerita yang intens, overall menyenangkan untuk di selesaikan seharian penuh

This is the perfect ender for a great trilogy, the Royal Brotherhood series, where the author Sabrina Jeffries tells Gavin's story, and a delightful one at that. He's the eldest of the three, and the only one who made it through his own hard work, and whose mother was harshly wronged by Prinny. This is one of those books that overwhelmed me I want to write a good review of it, and I hope what I'll write here does it justice.

this was my first ever novel by jeffries. and though i have long feared before that she might just prove to be unsatisfactory, i can honestly say, after reading One Night, that this is a keeper.

the very sensual chemistry between Christabel and Gavin contributes a lot to the essence of the book. if jeffries have brought this down a notch i think it might not have been that intriguing to read. i mean, really, all that would have been left are the pursuit for the incriminating letters connected to

The last book of the Royal Brotherhood series. What I can say, I got intrigued by the story of the eldest son of the by blows of the Prince of Wales. Both the h/h had a good character, although there is scoundrel/rakish but good in the inside character of the hero which most if the books have. For the heroine, your not typical female who is frank and does abide society. Even if this is the case, I liked the story. Typical but still there is this edge that you want to finish the story.

I do so love Sabrina Jeffries. The way she writes I feel as if I am right there with the characters. These gambling boys don't gamble with anything important, like their hearts. Pretending to be a mistress is a completely new adventure for Christabel. Gavin doesn't know his heart is already Christabel's until it's too late to get it back. Old secrets come to light, and I love Gavin's mother. I love the quick, witty banter and the love scenes that are heartfelt. Great read!!

Suka....Suka... Suka.... sama novel ini, novel terbagus dari series ini. Semuanya pas, dari awal, tengah hingga ending. Hanya satu yang kurang, kata "mengial" yang agak mengganggu, agak aneh jdnya pas baca, bgg kenapa gak diganti jadi kata "menunjuk" aja ya, biar lebih mudah dimengerti n nyambung ma kalimat lainnya. Namun selain hal kecil tersebut, semuanya sempurna ;D

Out of the Royal Brotherhood series, this concluding installment has got to be my favorite! I absolutely adored Gavin and Christabel, the sexy, strong characters I've come to expect and love from Sabrina Jeffries. A tight, well-paced story spins to a wholly satisfying conclusion to this book and also to the others in the series. Bravo! Stunning, witty, highly entertaining.

Hasta la página 670 4 estrellas (más como 3.75) las últimas 40 páginas... Bueno en realidad el epílogo no estuvo mal pero bueno. Las últimas 40 paginas o el final de la historia.... Una cagada. De la página 670 a 713. Odie como resolvieron la gran trama de todo el libro. Pero es porque soy yo y soy una mina jodida. A otra persona quizás le gusta o encanta.
El libro claramente vale la pena pero no me fascino. Le faltó un poco para llegar a eso.

“The man is always the last to know when
Cupid has struck him
-Anonymous, Memoirs of a Mistress”
“Oh, for pity’s sake,” she muttered, but stopped fighting him. After a moment of enduring the indignity of
having his hands on her, she snapped, “My pistol is in my reticule, which is sitting in Lord Draker’s
drawing room. All right?”
The woman was a walking arsenal. “All right.” He released her, not because of what she’d said, but
because running his hands over her petite but surprisingly womanly figure had perversely aroused him. He
didn’t want her to know it, however—the female was liable to shoot off his cock for its impertinence.”
