Welcome to Thorncliff Manor, where London's elite mix, mingle, and may even find their heart's desire...

There are thousands of things Christopher, Viscount Spencer, would rather do than hunt for a bride, especially since experience has taught him that women are not to be trusted. Then he finds the intriguing Lady Sarah scrambling around in Thorncliff's conservatory and he is instantly charmed by her passionate nature. But why is she so intent on avoiding him?

Lady Sarah would make the perfect bride for a peer—if not for a tarnished past that she's hiding from the ton. A stay at Thorncliff Manor was meant to help her plan for her future, not fall in love. Yet Christopher's kisses are irresistible, his gallantry enticing. When her secret stands to be revealed, will the truth ruin their dreams of happiness?

My Review:

Intro: Sophie Barnes has been one of my favorite authors for a while. I always look forward to her books. They are the perfect lighthearted romances that give me a nice break from the angsty romances I usually read. Lady Sarah’s Sinful Desires was no different.


Heroine: Sarah-Sarah was one of the most resilient and strong heroines I have come across in a long time. She made a mistake in her youth and was constantly made to pay for it by her family and by her own guilt. I loved how she didn’t let it make her weak or angry.

Hero: Christopher-I liked Christopher but this was one of the rare instances where I loved the heroine far more than the hero. I did like him though. I love that he didn’t really judge Sarah for her past. He was kind and sweet and just the perfect sort of smooshy hero.

Chemistry: I loved them both together. Sarah carries so much guilt about her past and I love how that and the fact that she had this huge secret played out. They were so sweet and perfect. I found them refreshing.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: I loved this book. To bits and pieces. I did not stop reading once I started it. It was a sweet sort of romance with engaging characters and a juicy plot. I think this may be my favorite Sophie Barnes book so far.
