In the two decades since a tragic "accident" took the lives of his parents, Oliver Sharpe, the Marquess of Stoneville, has survived the scandal surrounding that fateful night by living as an unrepentant rakehell. And with his grandmother vowing to disinherit him if he doesn't settle down and wed, he plans to fulfill the bargain in true Sharpe style -- by bringing home a fake fiancée from a brothel! But his scheme is derailed when he rescues an American beauty in a dire predicament instead. Maria Butterfield came to London to track down her groom-to-be, who's gone missing, but her engagement won't stop Oliver from getting what he wants: her, in his bed. His rebellious masquerade may call his grandmother's bluff, but it's soon made all too real -- by a love that tempts him to be a hellion no more.

Good book

Sabrina Jeffries delivers two complex characters who learn relationships are never easy, and changing is even harder. With a fast paced plot and several surprises, Jeffries has the reader hooked with the first book in series "Hellions of Halstead Hall."

Enjoyable series-opening Regency--liked the family dynamics between the hero and his four siblings (who are the stars of the other four books in the series) and his relationship with the spunky (American!) heroine enough to make up for my complaints that the hero's tortured backstory dragged out for a biiiiiiiit too long, making his turnaround feel a bit abrupt. Otherwise a solid Regency romance.
