In the Prince's Bed by Sabrina Jeffries

From bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries comes the first dazzling novel in a sexy new series featuring three half brothers. Bound together by the royal father who denied them, they've formed a pact to help each other achieve their every desire...including the women of their dreams.

Miss Katherine Merivale is desperate to make a respectable match — if only her childhood sweetheart would propose! Until he does, she can't touch the fortune she's inherited. So the last thing she needs is notorious rogue Alec Black putting her proposed marriage at risk with his distracting, smoldering gaze and moonlit kisses.

Alec, the Earl of Iversley — and one of three bastard sons of the Prince of Wales — is secretly searching for an heiress bride to pay his debts. Fiery Katherine seems the answer to his prayers, and her passionate response to his practiced seduction soon assures him that she is his. But Alec knows Katherine is looking for a love-match, and he wonders...what will happen when she discovers his deception?

This was the first Sabrina Jeffries book that I have read, and I will be definitely going back for more! I really liked Alec, although I did wonder at times why Alec didn't just come out and tell Katherine the truth. I loved the scene at the poetry reading where he kept making smartass comments and had her laughing. I was so glad that Katherine didn't end up with the childhood sweetheart who's name I cannot remember! I have to admit that I felt almost as though Katherine was a cookie-cutter heroine - read her story in numerous books before, that is until we got to the circus act scene. That scene was so unusual and fun and I think the fact that she went ahead with it kind of bought Katherine to life for me. It is the thing that sticks in my mind clearest about this book. I was kind of surprised by the

I finished it on 30 November, so quite a few other things have become a little hazy. I do know that I am looking forward to reading the rest of the books in this series though!

Rating 4/5


  1. I just bought one of her books today called "One Night with a Prince". I didn't even notice till I got home this was part of a series.

  2. My fellow Regency England aficionado has recommended this series to me time and again. I think she has another series out now, too. Glad to hear your thoughts!

  3. Kathy, that is the third one following this one, and To Pleasure a Prince!

    Aarti, it was good. Other favourites for me are Liz Carlyle, Lisa Kleypas, Julia Quinn. I have also just started reading Gaelen Foley as well. There are lots of others too but those are the ones that come instantly to mind...oh, and Mary Balogh!

  4. Oh well I am going ahead and reading it first any way. =)

  5. Oh and Merry Christmas! You get to celebrate several hours before we do here in the U.S.
