Book Summary

When the youngest Sharpe sister hatches a plan to gain marriage offers, the straight-laced Bow Street Runner Jackson Pinter knows he'll do whatever it takes to ruin her scheme... 

With two months left to find a husband to fulfill her grandmother’s ultimatum, Lady Celia Sharpe sets her sights on three eligible bachelors. Becoming betrothed to one of these wealthy, high-ranking men will surely prove her capable of getting married, so hopefully the wedding itself won’t be necessary for Celia and her siblings to receive their inheritance. Step two of her audacious plan is hiring the dangerously compelling Bow Street Runner Jackson Pinter to investigate the three men she’s chosen. But with Lady Celia bedeviling Jackson’s days and nights, the last thing he wants is to help her find a husband. And when she recalls shadowed memories that lead his investigation into her parents’ mysterious deaths in a new direction—putting her in danger—Jackson realizes the only man he wants Celia to marry is himself!

Book Review

Rating: 5/5

I love Sabrina Jeffries’ Hellions of Halstead Hall Series, and although A Lady Never Surrenders, is not my ultimate favorite among the other five, I still gave it a five starts because I think the novel deserves it. Finally, the last book – I am so glad the mystery is going to be solved and the last among the Sharpe will be getting her very own love story.

Primarily, being the last book in the series, I would advise readers to read the rest of the previous novels first before jumping into this one. Not only because they would be surprise about the mystery that surrounds the whole novel but I think the newcomers to the series may feel that Jackson and Celia fell fast in the book. But, for the old-timers, they will immediately recognize that their odd courtship, bordering the edges of attraction and hostility has already been present since the first novel, and I was rooting for the both of them in the end. I’m so glad Sabrina Jeffries doesn’t disappoint. Not to mention the mystery that surrounds their parents’ murder (the one that I have waited to know) came into a conclusion. I couldn’t say who, but there were clues leading to it. Although there was a surprising twists that I haven’t seen coming.

As a whole, I love A Lady Never Surrenders. Celia and Jackson are perfect for each other since their personality complements. It was amazing how they finally came together despite all the differences and hurdles they encounter. A Lady Never Surrenders is a wonderful finally to the Hellions in Halstead Hall. This is indeed one of the best Regency Series I have ever read. 

Favorite Quotes

Love is taking chances when every rational part of you screams, ‘Don’t risk it.’ Because it’s only when your heart has been ripped open that you get a chance to find the one person capable of making it whole.
