The hero of In the Prince's Bed, Alec Black, earl of Iversley, is the unacknowledged bastard of the Prince Regent, future George IV. In this respect, the meaning of the title might be a vague reference to his now deceased mother's youthful error. Or, more convincingly, it might be just a nice-sounding phrase picked at random by someone who took one look at the summary's first sentence. Thank God I don't judge a book by its cover, or its title. I love Sabrina Jeffries' writing, and I didn't ...more

Cute book!
I liked both the hero and the heroine.
Will read the next one where hero is or liked or despised: I'm curious! :)

Perfect summer read!

Read the whole reviev in English and Croatian on

Don't you just love the charming way these kind of novels capture your attention? I can't resist the way those mischievous heroines innocently bat their eyelashes while stepping outside of the line of what it is considered as a proper behavior. They make us feel restless, wild and even daring. More than we usually are, anyway. We follow them on their journey rooting

Great book, although the deception part had me wondering how the man would redeem himself. Coincidentally, this is the 2nd book I've finished today that involves lies and deception and it unnerves me, but those lies keep me turning page after page. I don't want to be the cause of spoilers since I'm spoiler allergic myself. I liked the character consistency and development, the way they are always decisive and a how a cruel intention backfired and reformed a character. I have to admit Alec isn't ...more

5 Alec Stars..!!!

I went into this apprehensive... But soon loved it...!!
I have read a couple of rakehell fortune hunters and heiresses stories... This one definitely stood out and won a place in my heart...!!!
I love Katherine and Alec.. Will remember them for long..!
I read this one a while ago and honestly didn't remember it at all. So I went back and skimmed through it to jog my memory.
No wonder I forgot it. It just didn't grab me. Not sure I liked either character overmuch and am thinking this author may not be for me. Way too CR in its style- behaviour of the MCs was a bit unbelievable, tbh.
I will try another in this series, although my GR friends seem quite divided in their opinions of the other books.

There was a time that I read many historical romance books but not anymore. But after reading and enjoying this story I think that I will read this genre a little more in the future.

‘In the prince’s bed’ is the first book of ‘The Royal brotherhood’ series and the first book that I read of the writer Sabrina Jeffries. ‘In the prince’s bed’ is a very pleasant story and it left me very curious about the other books (about the other two half-brothers) in this series. I will certainly read them in
Of all the Sabrina Jeffries books that I have read (about 6), this one is my least favorite and is earning my lowest rating of them all, 3 stars.

There were two major problems with this book, in my opinion, that caused me to rate it only three stars. One being the underlying theme of the story- deception and lies between the hero and heroine. That has got to be one of the top themes, if not the very top, that I cannot stand in a book. Basically Alec needs to marry an heiress to restore his estate

3.5 stars.

First, what a bad title. Ugh. I hate when publishers do this to books. Second, this took me FOREVER to finish! I liked it, but so far, it's my least favorite Sabrina Jeffries book.

Alec made for an interesting hero. He was reckless, and not a jerk, although he lied almost right up until the last minute. That was annoying. Katherine, the heroine, was great because she was a bit curious about things, improper by society's standards, but still quite smart. She did let her past get in her

Ohhh, this was super good. It’s always difficult for me to find new HR authors and when I do, it’s normally a hit or miss. I’ve never read anything by Sabrina Jeffries, but she might be one of my new favorites because I seriously could not stop reading this. My kindle battery was down to 1% right at the height of the drama, so I ended up doing this weird ‘charge it for five minutes, read a bit, then repeat’ thing because I had to know how it all played out. The premise was super cute and just ...more

What a dazzling read!

Lately I've been on a Historical Romance kick. Before the last few weeks, I was unsure of Historical Romances. I read a few I loved, but I still felt that I would rather reading Historical Romances with a paranormal aspect...until now.

I've read some many wonderful Historical Romances lately, so now I see them in a whole new light. First Eileen Dreyer, then Lynsay Sands & Elizabeth Boyle and now Sabrina Jeffries. I'm on a roll with some amazing Historical Romance

In the Prince's Bed Typical guy-meets-girl, guy is a fortune hunter, girl has a fortune but no access to the funds until after she weds. Simple, right? Nah! Of course there is mayhem, complications, and issues. And intrigue; did I mention they're both keeping secrets?

Wicked intentions, complicated paternity, and compromising positions takes a sweet story into the realm of rollicking good time.

3 1/2 stars. It was entertaining,and a good premise, but I hate the whole keeping secrets thing and there was a lot of that in this book. I would have skipped this one and just read the 2nd book To Pleasure a Prince as that I the one I am most intrigued by, but I just hate reading out of order.

Damn woman was like a reporter on the scent, constantly sniffing for his secrets.

Also, her using some historical counterpart of Playboy as her Bible for judging all men was ridiculous.
The plot was bland, and I didn’t care about the characters very much. I doubt I will try her again.

2.5 **

Compared to the other 2 in the series, both of which I loved, this one had some serious problems. I hovered between 2 and 3, but ultimately decided on 2.5 because despite the issues the gay side characters get a happy ending.

But there were...a lot of problems with this....

1. Alec is...a fairly boring character. Like, he's meant to be this nice guy, or he thinks of himself as nice, and gets angry at Kit for thinking he's a rake except...HE IS PRETTY MUCH A RAKE. His entire plan is: dont

This is a touching tale of two lovers who got together because of wrong reasons but eventually fell in love. It shows the different perspectives of people when it comes to marriage.

The female main character has a naughty streak which brightened the story a lot. I loved the contrast between prim and proper miss and the wanton coquet. The male main character is interesting, too. Though of royal birth, he has undergone a lot of difficulties as a child due to his bastard status. It made him into a

This title was misleading... but that can be easily ignored. I really enjoyed the storyline, but it was rather predictable for the most part. I can't complain too much though, because I could barely put this book down anyways. I loved that Katherine was such a strong female character despite the time period and Alec was very amusing. I will say I'm hoping it works out for Sydney in the end, too. All in all, this was a good diversion sort of book; I'm curious to see what will happen in the rest ...more

Brilliant as ever! No matter how many times I read this book (& the trilogy), it's always a 5* rating.
I love this series.

Second reading: oh, I still love this book. First class writing, good storyline and a HEA. What more could you ask of this author. 5

Joy (Cheery♡Reads)
Wow. Found another series and author to love. This was such a wonderful and addictive read.
I feel the title of not only this book, but also the series is misleading. None of the heroes are really princes. Our hero, Alexander Black, is not a prince though he is the natural son of the Prince of Wales, aka Prinny. In a nutshell, the storyline for this book is your typical rake with a big secret meets our heroine, Katherine Merivale. Katherine is a horny, inquisitive young lady. Our hero is also a fortune hunter bent on deceiving our heroine who has a fortune but no access to the funds ...more

For some reason whenever I came across this book in my library, I would always put off reading it and choose another book in its place. When I eventually decided, ‘eh why not give it a try?’ I never expected to love it as much as I do and wish I’d read it sooner!

The story involves one of those ‘you only wanted me for my money, how can I ever believe your feelings are sincere?’ tropes, however this book is one of the best executions of this plot device I have read.

I thought that I loved Lord Templemore. Then, I thought that I loved Lachlan Ross... So then I fall in love with Stoneville and tought that I was done with it. BUT THEN CAME ALEC IN THAT HORSE SHOW. Oh Lord, there's nothing more charming and powerful and sexy than a man in a horse and who knows how to handle it. And who slowly falls in love with a smart lady. And who is wicked and lovely at the same time.

I must confess that all the "I should tell her/nah, she wont discover" started to bother me

“Why didn't you tell us you were the Alexander Black who can stand atop a cantering horse and shoot a hole through a plum at a hundred paces?"

With a snort, Alec jerked his gaze away. "More like a cantaloupe. The thing shrinks with every retelling. Soon they'll have me shooting at a mustard seed.”
