2.5

Estuve a nada de dejarlo.


Todo el principio es aburrido y ella muy bobita y sin chiste la verdad, no sé ni cómo se enamoran pero al final les compré la historia.

Lo que más me gustó fue el prólogo y las partes donde podemos vislumbrar un poco de la oscura personalidad de Gabe y sus motivos para ser como es. Cómo es constante en todos los libros de esta serie, siento que el final fue muy apresurado pero de todas formas es un libro que entretiene y que tiene el obvio sello de Sabrina.

3.5 stars. An enjoyable read, and possibly the best in the series. Lord Gabriel Sharpe made a great hero type, rough around the edges but not too full of himself. Virgina was likable heroine and a good match for Gabe. This was a fun, steamy, light historical romance.

After his grandmother threatened her five grandchildren to marry within one year or be disinherited from her fortune, Gabe took the pragmatic approach to finding a bride. Out of guilt he set his eye on the lovely Virginia Waverly, l

So, I must warn you that it has been awhile since I read/listened to this book. I say this because, some of the details would be a little blurry, but overall, I enjoyed this book. Which seems to NOT be the common opinion.

So this is the 4th book, following the wild lord Gabriel Sharpe, who by now, we have grown to love. He wears all black because he believes he's the Angel of Death and that anyone he touches would die (load of baloney, I know). 7 years ago, his best friend died in a race with him

Sabrina Jeffries'i cidden seviyorum :) Sanırım asıl son kitabı hevesle beklediğim, bu kitabı da hiç ilgilenmediğim için beklentim olmadan okudum ve gerçekten sevdim.

Bu 5 Sharpe kardeşinin serisi. Büyükanneleri eğer bir yıl içinde evlenmezseniz sizi mirasımdan men ederim diyerek resti çekiyor. İlk kitapta en büyük ağabeyleri Oliver'ı, ikinci kitapta da diğer ağabeyi Jarret'ı, üçüncü kitapta da gotik romanlar yazan Minerva'yı aşka kurban verdik :)) Bundaysa 4. kardeş Gabe var.

In line with the previous books of the series!
For this one the same applies.
These books can be read as a standalone, but it is better to read them in order because they're connected.

Eight years ago Lord Gabriel Sharpe raced a race and Roger Waverly ended up dead. So when Roger's sister Virginia Waverly shows up looking fiiiiine, Gabe decides to marry her because ANGST. And also: BONERS. Also there's an extended metaphor about Death or something, but mostly: BONERS.

1. Again: poorly developed. No real depth. Absolutely shallow and resolved without any true consequence. And it's not necessarily a bad thing, but because Jeffries is talented and has intriguing premises and intr

Not surprisingly I enjoyed this book a great deal! Gabriel and Virginia make a great pair and I of course loved every scene when the Sharpe siblings and their spouses were present. I do have a couple things to complain about. First (and this surprised me), as much as I admire and usually enjoy Grandma Hetty’s pluck and scheming, at the beginning of Gabe’s book I got a little tired of her hardness and intervention. I think I only like it in small doses and in Gabe’s book she was more involved. Al ...more

A beautiful addition to the "Hellions of Halstead" series.
Book four is the story of Gabe or Gabriel, the youngest son and the fourth Hellion and Virginia.
Traumatized during childhood by the death of his parents, and during teenage years by the death of his closest friend Roger, "Angel of death" Gabe spends his days challenging life in its face by racing dangerous courses.
When one morning he's challenged by Virginia, late Roger's sister to a race as a payback for her brother's death- he accepts i

Minerva'nın hikayesini çıktığı gibi okumuştum ama bu kitaba fırsatım olmamıştı anca okuyabildim:)

Yine çok güzel bir kitaptı. 3. Kitapta Gabriel ile Virginia sinyali verilmişti zaten. Kızımız Gaby’e yarışmak için meydan okumuştu ama ondan sonrası ne oldu görememiştik bu kitapta o meydan okumadan 1.5 ay sonra başlıyor.

7 yıl önce Gabriel ve en yakın arkadaşı Roger iddaa üzerine yarışıyor ve o sırada Roger ölüyor ve Gabriel’e Ölüm Meleği denmeye başlıyor hiç bir meydan okumayı geri çevirmiyor..

I started this series with this book lol .. I'm going to go backwards after this

The Author has been able to create such a fascinating family. I just love all the Sharp siblings; they are all their own person with their own personality, view on life and issues.

I did enjoy reading Virginia as a character, she has the right head on top of her shoulders and thinks logically. she is responsible and passionate. You can see that she grows as a character from being someone who, while independent, can

Gabriel Sharpe loves to race and when he does he pushes it to the edge. Despite the death of his best friend while "threading the needle" during a race against him hasn't stopped him. But his grandmother's ultimatum to marry before the end of the year has forced his hand to make a decision. He'll offer marriage to Virginia Waverly, his best friend's sister, and absolve himself from the guilt from his part in his friend's death and give Virginia a home to live in. First he has to convince her she ...more

After a short story by Sabrina Jeffries that I read way back in 2010, I was pleasantly surprised by this novel.

All characters are strong with arrays of emotions (wonderful character development), which is essential for me - hah, take that Harlequinn, after I gave a scathing review on this novel. I really need a good book after feeling my time was wasted after reading that.

My take on this novel..

Gabe has always always always feel guilty over Virginia's brother's death, because he was the one who

I liked this book and I think Gabriel is my favorite out of the brothers. He has a great sense of humor and I loved his sensitive side!!!

This took me almost a month to finish. I never thought I'd give this book 4 stars. In the beginning, I did not like Virginia at all. I thought she was too judgmental. I understood that she had lost her brother, but she made him out to be a saint and put all the blame on Gabriel without having all of the facts. Let's not even talk about the General. I wanted to knock some sense into that old guy. He projected all of his feelings onto Virginia. I was really glad to see Virginia's growth and develo ...more

It was ok... For some reason, I just couldn't get into the whole romance between H/h, even though there was enough angst with the heroine's brother getting killed on a horse race with the hero as background history. To me, it just felt a bit drawn out.

Fourth in the Hellions of Halstead Hall historical romance series about a group of five siblings forced to find spouses within the year or lose everything. The couple focus is on Lord Gabriel Sharpe and Virginia Waverly.

My Take
Rather annoying actually. Virginia kept whining on and on about how awful Gabriel was for killing her brother, and her grandfather was just as bad. Actually, so is Gabriel. None of them have ever considered what could be the truth behind the whole thing. Instead, for seven

as it comes to no surprise, yet again, that I loved it. So far Sabrina and the Sharpes can do no wrong in my eyes.

To me, Gabe was a little different than his brothers and sisters, I felt like he was hurting a bit more over his parents sudden unexpected death - he was seven at the time - plus to top it off, one of his friends died in a racing accident against him. He hides his pain and gilt through his smiles and jokes when he is actually hurting inside. He feels like death follows him wherever h

Lord Gabriel Sharpe’s heart has been broken twice already in his very young life. The first time came with the mysterious death of his parents and then with the untimely death of his friend, Roger Waverly. In between all of this mind-numbing grief comes a challenge from Roger’s sister to race “the needle’s thread,” a hair-raising course which turns into a single lane between boulders. Why would Gabe want to woo her but refuse her challenge? And what does his grandmother’s meddling ultimatum have ...more

Sabrina Jeffries is one of my favorite historical romance authors ever. Her novels are exciting, humorous and addictive. I haven't read a novel by her that I didn't like. She really know's how to write a gripping romance.

Gabriel was a character I've been wanting to read along with for a while. He's tough on the outside, but deep inside he's still that young boy who yearns for love. Although, he believes he's not worthy. It was touching reading along with Virgina while he opened up to her. His t

Sabrina Jeffries is one of my auto-reads. I absolutely love her writing and I've totally been enjoying her Hellions of Halstead Hall series. There are 5 siblings whose grandmother has decided that they all need to be married or she's going to write them out of her will. Each of them tries to avoid matrimony and even tries to make deals with grandma, but seeing as we're reading romance novels, we know it's going to end in happil

His heart seemed permanently lodged in his throat. “More than life. God only knows why you love me, because I sure as hell don’t, but I know why I love you. You’re my beacon in the darkness, and my compass on a night sea. When I’m with you, I don’t want to dance with Death. I want to dance with Life. I want to dance with you.
