Anniversary Guest & Contest: Sabrina Jeffries

Sabrina Jeffries1

Today we kick off historical romance week with a visit from Sabrina Jeffries. She’s one of my go-to authors when I need to escape or get out of a reading slump. So, I’m super excited to welcome her to Romancing the Book.

SJ-03Sabrina Jeffries is the NYT bestselling author of 37 novels and 9 works of short fiction (some written under the pseudonyms Deborah Martin and Deborah Nicholas). Whatever time not spent writing in a coffee-fueled haze of dreams and madness is spent traveling with her husband and adult autistic son or indulging in one of her passions—jigsaw puzzles, chocolate, and music. With over 7 million books in print in 18 different languages, the North Carolina author never regrets tossing aside a budding career in academics for the sheer joy of writing fun fiction, and hopes that one day a book of hers will end up saving the world.

She always dreams big.

Instead of a guest post or interview, Sabrina decided to share one of her Will and Jane cartoons for us to enjoy!



The third deliciously sexy novel in the New York Times bestselling Duke’s Men historical romance series, featuring an investigator who sets out to find gypsies— and unexpectedly finds love.

Investigator Tristan Bonnaud has one aim in life— to make sure that his half-brother George can’t ever ruin his life again. So when the pesky Lady Zoe Keane, the daughter of the Earl of Olivier, shows up demanding that the Duke’s Men find a mysterious gypsy woman, he seizes the opportunity to also hunt for a gypsy friend who knows secrets about George. Tristan doesn’t expect to uncover Lady Zoe’s family secrets, as well… or end up falling for the woman who will risk all to discover the truth.

    Yes I love them. Something about them that makes my heart go pitter patter. They are always redeemed at the end.. But sometimes not entirely. Which is a very good thing.

  2. Debbie Brown says:

    I love to see a scoundrel find his HEA in a story, after all there is a little good in everyone. Love your books!!

  3. Sharon F says:

    Love reformed scoundrels and rakes especially when it’s a feisty woman who brings them to heel.

  4. Tina Hairston says:

    LOVE scoundrels as heroes!!! A reformed rake/scoundrel make the best husbands and fathers because they have experienced the dangers of the world and know how to protect those around them with a ferocity that others may not. Not to mention they are the sexiest of men and we ALL love the bad boys 😉

  5. JoAnne says:

    Usually not unless they can be reformed! Love the cartoon.
    I look forward to reading How the Scoundrel Seduces.
    Thanks for sharing!

  6. Mary M. says:

    Hi Sabrina! Thank you for another Will and Jane adventure! I think that reformed scoundrels/rakes make some of the best heroes, especially when they marry and have daughters :)! Thank you for yet another great book in the Duke’s Men series!

  7. Brenda Rumsey says:

    I love reading about scoundrels because authors make them so irresistible….who will risk and sacrifice what ever it takes once they find their true love. They are really good guys at heart but they try so hard to keep that a secret…smile.

  8. Catherine Whtie says:

    I always have loved scoundrels and the power of love to reform them. Love the cartoon as well. its fun to see what Will and Jane are up to.

  9. Karen H says:

    Yes and yes! What’s not to love about a rogue and/or a scoundrel? In fact, I’m reading an oldie by one of my other favorite authors and the hero is an Oxford scholar and academic who inherits the Earldom when his older brother suddenly dies in a boating accident. He’s not really prepared for the job and really doesn’t want it, but he is prepared to step up and do his due diligence to bring the nearly bankrupt estate back to it’s former glory. His father and brother were both big wastrels and everybody is wondering why the new Earl is so priggish! Terribly funny because the heroine is an actress. Can’t wait to see how corrupt he becomes while trying hard NOT to seduce the actress! I know this sounds like it came from Sabrina’s talented pen but it isn’t one of hers.

    Scoundrels are a lot of fun to read 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing and congrats to Sabrina on the new release!!

  11. Dawn says:

    I do like bad boys especially when they’re redeemed in the end. I suppose that’s the only way I like them. A good scoundrel is not bad all the way through though. He usually has a heart of gold. And isn’t that what most of us look for in our heroes?

  12. Claudette says:

    I LOVE Scoundrels, just something about them bad boys (giggle). And I so hope I win this thank you for sharing :>)

  13. Jeanne Miro says:

    I’ll take a scoundrel that’s a hero any day because once we tame them (just not to much) they make the perfect husband!

    PS: I love checking in on Sabrina’s website and checking out The Latest from Will and Jane – I’m still laughing about the one she has on now about William Shakespeare!

  14. earlene gillespie says:

    I love scoundrels. They don’t care a fig for rules and love breaking them. When the
    right woman comes along they get reformed and turn into great husbands for said women.
    I always look forward to more of Will and Jane. We just don’t get enough of them in my
    opinion. LOL. Jane really loves to torment Will doesn’t she. 🙂

  15. Michelle says:

    I love this author, definitely all keepers. I am sure this new book will be a keeper too, I can’t wait to read it.

  16. I love scoundrels. They are either misunderstood or a little flawed and need the love and respect of a woman to help them to love and respect in return Aaawww! Sabrina, I love your books! Like Jen said you are a “go to” author. You tell the most wonderful stories.

  17. Samantha says:

    I love rogues. Specially that moment they realized they have “fallen in love” love it!!!!!!!!

  18. Samantha says:

    Rogues. I get more humor when they are I denial at first about being in love or I love the feeling the lady feels when she realizes she won his heart.

  19. Marcy Shuler says:

    I like them as heroes because you know they’re going top fall…and fall hard! LOL
