Review: To Pleasre a Prince by Sabrina Jeffries

To Pleasure a Prince (Royal Brotherhood, #2)To Pleasure a Prince (Royal Brotherhood #2)

My Rating: 

Bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries pens the sizzling story of one of three half-noble half brothers, who makes a most unwelcome entrance into society...and a most unexpected match.

Beautiful Lady Regina Tremaine has turned down so many suitors that she's called La Belle Dame Sans Merci. The truth: she won't marry because she carries a dark secret. She sees no good reason, however, why her brother shouldn't court the lovely Louisa North -- even if the girl's brother, the notorious "Dragon Viscount," objects.

Marcus North, Viscount Draker -- bastard son of the Prince of Wales -- is rumored to be a monster who holds women captive in his dark castle to have his way with them. He has been exiled from polite society for years. But when Lady Regina makes a plea on her brother's behalf, Marcus proposes an outrageous deal: her brother can court Louisa so long as Marcus can court Regina. Can the beauty and the beast survive a proper courtship when the devastatingly improper passion between them threatens to cause the scandal of the century?

My Thoughts:

 Once you start filling your shelves with Sabrina Jeffries work, you won't want to stop!

"To Pleasure a Prince" is the second installment in the royal Brotherhood series by Sabrina Jeffries. Almost before I got into the first novel, I was begging for Draker's story. I loved book one, which is Alex's story, but I knew i'd love this one even more. 

The heroine of the story is the beautiful, well to due Lady Regina Tremaine. She's turned down so many suitors that they cal. her La Belle Dame Sans Merci, but there is a reason for her doing so. Her secret eats her inside, but she does wish she could have a normal life and marry a man she loves. 
Lady Regina's brother was on my bad list from the start. i just didn't like him. He did nothing obviously wrong starting out, but I just had a bad feeling about him. Either way, lady Regina wishes to persuade Louisa North's brother to let her brother court her. Louisa's brother will have nothing of the sort, and doesn't wish to speak to Regina until she brings up of their "secret meetings". 

Draker, also known as "Dragon Viscount", is an outcast. He may have a respectable title and may be the bastard son of the Prince of Wales, but ever since his exile, he's been living his life in the country, away from society. He wishes his sister to be happy, but with anyone but Lady Regina's brother, who is a friend of his father, the Prince of Wales. Nothing good can come out of their friendship, and him courting Louisa. He wants the best for her, and that's not it. 

From the beginning, Draker is miserable to Regina. His ruggard good looks and mysterious ways, not the mention to calm light expression he gets when he thinks of his sister, means nothing to Regina, especially since he seems to be down right mean to her from the start. He doesn't know her. How dare he judge her? 
But what she comes to realize is he's hurt. He thinks he's lost hope on any life with a family of his own who loves him (besides his sister). He doesn't realize what life really is until he meets Regina, and how hard it will be to change his ways, and to trust her and finally, to woo her. 

I can honestly say this was an amazing read. I'm fairly new to the Historical romance genre, but man I'm glad I started it! I highly recommend this series, it's one you won't want to miss!
