Drowning in guilt over his best friend’s death seven years ago, Lord Gabriel Sharpe, the Angel of Death, knows his only hope at redemption is a race against a shocking opponent.

Shrouded in darkness for the past seven years, the infamous racer Lord Gabriel Sharpe is known to accept every challenge to race thrown at him. When his next challenge comes in the form of his late best friend’s sister, Virginia Waverly, Gabe is shocked. Yet she presents just the opportunity Gabe needs–marriage to fulfill his grandmother’s ultimatum and ensure his inheritance. What he didn’t count on was needing her love.

Review: 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 happily ever after.  In addition, there is another sub plot of trying to uncover the truth behind their parents’ deaths.

To Wed a Wild Lord is the fourth book in the series. Gabriel Sharpe’s best friend, Roger, died in a racing accident and now Roger’s sister, Virginia, is blaming Gabriel for his death and wants revenge.  Gabriel’s been living a wild life because he’s been feeling guilty.  They meet when Virgina challenges Gabe to a race, but he counters with a courtship.  I enjoyed watching Gabe and Virginia butt heads and get over their individual guilt as they got to know each other and eventually fall in love.

All the major players from the series make welcome appearances in this story as the over-arcing plots continue to advance. The stories have kept me intrigued… especially when it comes to the mystery of the Sharpe’s parents.  In fact, I can’t wait for the release of the final book so that the mystery will finally be solved.
