To Wed a Wild Lord

To Wed a Wild LordLord Gabe Sharpe is a daredevil when it came to racing and because of that a friend of his was killed. To make amends he will try and help out of the Waverly family by marrying Virginia Waverly. He will find it challenging when all the woman wanted to do was race him but thanks to a wager he wins the right to court her.

Miss Virginia Waverly wanted revenge against the man who had killed her brother. The problem is when she looses the race he gets the right to court her and she will learn that maybe Gabe was not totally to blame for her brothers death.

To Wed a Wild Lord is the fourth book to the series Hellions of Halstead Hall by Sabrina Jeffries. Another great book from the series. What had kept me invested was the relationship between Gabe and Virginia. They were at odds but there was more to the story. I wanted to know what had happened that day between the friends. Jeffries keeps you with questions right until the end of the book but there are hints that are written throughout the book with what had happened.

Gabe was a daredevil and a risk taker but was a good man as he tried to do the right thing. Virginia was a good woman who only wanted to know the truth and to right a wrong. Together they should not have worked since there was that animosity between them, well at least on Virginia’s side. Virginia was mentioned in the third book and she certainly showed her dislike towards Gabe. In the fourth book Gabe and Virginia make it work and there is definitely passion between them. I also liked that they shared a common like which were horses.

I felt that in this book the murder of the parents took a step back in the book. It was not mentioned as much the others were. Though the answers that are needed will be given in the fifth book which I will be re-reading next and then finish up the series with the sixth book.
