Review: The Forbidden Lord by Sabrina Jeffries

The Forbidden Lord (Lord Trilogy, #2) The Forbidden Lord by Sabrina Jeffries


Devastating Passion

Jordan Willis, the Earl of Blackmore, has played with the hearts of many a society belle- yet one stolen kiss impulsively planted on the soft, irresistible lips of the preacher's daughter, prim and proper Emily Fairchild, proves to be his undoing. Unable to forget her, he is more shaken than ever when he meets Lady Emma Campbell, an outrageously flirtatious debutante who is an uncanny double of the sweet Emily!

Dangerous Charade

Emily cannot reveal the reason for her scandalous masquerade- not even to the earl whose heated embrace awkwakens a sizzling passion. Her very life depends on convincing society that she is Lady Campbell, yet no disguise can hide her dangerous attraction to the earl. But does "Cinderella" care risk losing her handsome "prince" by revealing that she is just a country girl? 


If you've read my past reviews, then you know that I love Sabrina Jeffries's work. I fall into every world she writes and I haven't read a book by her that I've yet to like.

At first, I thought it was going to be a normal mistaken identity turn love affair novel, but this one is much more than that. Hidden love affairs, black mail, spying and even possible death. It was filled with twists and hidden agendas, I was up most sitting up reading in my bed.

Jordan is a character I fell for shortly into the novel. He was hard and cold on the outside, but I could tell he was hiding something from his past for his way of being. He was also funny and sultry and kind. Loyal to Emily even though sometimes she didn't give him much to cling too.

Emily was a pure, sweet country girl, trapped into a game she didn't have any choice in. I felt bad for predicament, but the one thing that stopped me from giving this a five star review was the with holding the truth from Jordan. Yes, lives were at stake, but he proved himself time and time again that he'd keep her secret and help her. Even if she gave him most of it, then he'd at least catch on. But no, she kept pushing him away even thought he knew she was in trouble and was going to help her no matter what.

That being said, this novel was a fun read. Everything I wanted in a historical romance. Even talk of Scot's under kilts! *laughs* Another great novel by Sabrina Jeffries that I recommend you check out!

My Rating: 
Frigging amazing! Why did it have to end?!
