To Pleasure a Prince reminds me of the regency-set Julie Garwoods from several years ago. The dark hero who's so Alpha he bosses himself
around. The heroine who is flawed but unafraid of the ogre-hero, who is tiny but leads him around by his nose.
Know what that means? Yep. I loved it. I loved Regina's flaws, I loved the fact that I wanted to climb through the pages and slap the crap out of Marcus. I love all the wagers made in this book, because you just know at some point, the person referred to in each bet will find out and conflict will insue. I also love the fact that Ms. Jeffries didn't try to make those moments the BIG BLACK MOMENT, the predictable, this will tear them apart
scenes. She used them as little gray moments and saved far more personal conflicts for that BIG BLACK MOMENT, so that, while you could guess what was going to happen, you never really knew when or how Ms. Jeffries was going to pull it off.
Will I read Sabrina Jeffries again? Absolutely. TO PLEASURE A PRINCE was part of the Royal Brotherhood Series, and I'm looking forward to reading the others in that series when I'm in the mood for this time period again.
Did I like the cover? Oh yeah. It's very very sensual.
Oh, and for those who were wondering - yes, Ms. Jeffries has every right to give workshops on great dialogue and unskippable love scenes. She's done a brilliant job with both.
