Review: The Widow’s Auction by Sabrina Jeffries

garden

THE WIDOW’S AUCTION is a hot and romantic novella that I enjoyed a lot in one sitting.

Both Isobel and Justin are solid characters with believable motivations. Even at the start, although they were attracted to each other, each had ruled out the other as a potential mate due to some perceived realistic, albeit mistaken, reason. I like how, in the course of one night, they got to know who the other is beneath the facade that they present to the world.

The entire novella happened over 2 days, but the characters had known each other a long time before that, so their romantic development had started way before page 1, and we are merely witness to when that romance has come to full bloom. Nevertheless, the story was a satisfying and enjoyable read that fans of historical romance would surely enjoy.

Summary:

From Sabrina Jeffries—New York Times bestselling author of The Study of Seduction and The Art of Sinning—comes a sumptuous tale of a woman whose affection comes at a price…

Though Isobel Lamberton, the widowed Lady Kingsley, is confounded by her dealings with the obstinate Justin Antony, Lord Warbrooke, his commanding presence sparks something deep within her. But such romantic thoughts are for naught. For Justin’s political aspirations always come first. And Isobel’s own secret past could damage both of them permanently.

So when Isobel’s friend talks her into participating in a scandalous auction of masked widows at a gentleman’s club, she reluctantly agrees…and soon begins to relish being an object of desire. But none desire her more than Justin, who recognizes the outspoken Isobel in disguise and sets out to teach her a lesson worth far more than money…
