This was a quick and fun novella from Sabrina Jeffries, so this will be a short and sweet review Escaping to The Widow s Auction was a perfect way to spend my lunch break today, and it was just the right length to finish in under an hour.Lady Isobel Lamberton, widow to Viscount Kingsley, was made director of the board of her late husband s charitable organizations, including Lamberton School In this role she often finds herself facing off against Justin Antony, Lord Warbrooke, who has lofty po This was a quick and fun novella from Sabrina Jeffries, so this will be a short and sweet review Escaping to The Widow s Auction was a perfect way to spend my lunch break today, and it was just the right length to finish in under an hour.Lady Isobel Lamberton, widow to Viscount Kingsley, was made director of the board of her late husband s charitable organizations, including Lamberton School In this role she often finds herself facing off against Justin Antony, Lord Warbrooke, who has lofty political aspirations Dealing with men such as Lord Warbrooke require that Isobel maintain the utmost morality and decorum But when Isobel and her gal pal start talking about the pleasure or lack thereof of the marital bed, Isobel realizes she might have missed something in her marriage, and she allows herself to be talked into entering the annual Widow s Auction where masked merry widows are auctioned for a night of passion Murphy s Law rules the auction and Isobel is not as anonymous as she would have hoped Lord Warbrooke decides to teach her a lesson that she will never forget.I enjoyed both Isobel and Justin s characters I would have liked to knowabout Justin, but I felt like Isobel was developed quite well for such a short story Even though much of the book revolved around the night following the Widow s Auction, the romance still seemedsweet than steamy I recommend this story to anyone interested in a short and sweet jaunt to the past with a little steam thrown in for good measure.I received an advanced copy of this book from Berkley Intermix via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review 4 stars 3 flames Full review posted at Bambi Unbridled Loved it What a wonderful little novella Isobel and Justin were totally delightful and while this was a novella, their story didn t feel rushed or incomplete The writing was wonderful, the story interesting, the relationship between Isobel and Justin developed at a believable pace and the love scenes were well done warm but not too spicy for a novella It was a great read and I would happily recommend it Cute, cheesy, unlikely and featuring as underdeveloped a plot as most shorts but the characters were quickly and definitively established, quite relatable, and the novella serves as a nice stop gap between books. She and Lord Warbrooke together The very idea was absurd, impossibleEntrancing FINAL DECISION I thoroughly enjoyed this novella The story is very compact and tight and thus it works well I enjoyed the characters interaction which covers a lot of ground for such a short story.THE STORY Isobel, Lady Kingsley is a widow who has dedicated herself to charitable causes Her nemesis is Justin, Lord

enjoyed this novella The story is very compact and tight and thus it works well I enjoyed the characters interaction which covers a lot of ground for such a short story.THE STORY Isobel, Lady Kingsley is a widow who has dedicated herself to charitable causes Her nemesis is Justin, Lord Warbrooke The two strike sparks off of one another as they take opposite sides Isobel, however, also has several secrets One of them is that she found the marriage bed unsatisfying with her deceased husband Convinced by her dear friend to participate in the notorious Widow s Auction, Isobel hopes to find some passion Isobel is shocked when Lord Warbrooke purchases her favors for the night Although masked, Isobel worries about Justin discovering her identity Then as the two discover something special together, Isobel knows that her secrets prevent any chance of happiness between them What she doesn t know is that Justin already knows who she is.OPINION This is a short novella so it doesn t have the complexity or depth of a full length work Despite that, however, this story really worked for me I liked Isobel and Justin who clearly have an attraction to one another from the beginning The majority of the story is spent on how they discover the real person beyond the one they thought they knew For a story about purchasing a night of sex, these two quickly enter a personal emotional intimacy with one another which culminates in sex rather than just being about sex Not that the sex isn t hot as well.I also liked Justin a great deal because he always treats Isobel with respect In fact, the purchases the night with her because he respects her and he doesn t want anyone else to have her I liked that these two have passions in common and an ability to recognize the good in one another.Many times I wish than a novella had been written as a full length novel This story, I think is good as it is.WORTH MENTIONING THE WIDOW S AUCTION was previously published in FANTASY.CONNECTED

and each has their own proposal they are determined to see win the board vote The two of them are driving one another mad Isobel is frustrated with Justin s high handedness and he is equally frustrated with her stubbornness What neither will admit but all can see is their deep attraction to one another When Isobel is talked into participating in a scandalous widow s auction and Justin finds himself at the same auction, determined to gain the support of one of theirdegenerate board members, things come to a head and the passion takes hold But what will morning bring I can t count the number of times I ve read The Widow s Auction since it was first published in the Fantasy anthology Justin and Isobel never fail to make me smile and I always fall into Sabrina Jeffries s writing.Isobel and Justin are clearly made for one another, but misconceptions and hidden fears are keeping them both from taking a risk making their feelings known It takes a masked widow s auction to give them that extra push, Isobel s belief that Justin doesn t recognize her making heropen than she would normally be Isobel s upbringing isn t at all what Justin thinks it is the way it marked her and how her marriage to the saintly Lord Kingsley shaped her persona are something he could never guess I loved watching him come to understand her and for her to see past her biases and come to know the man beneath the perfect politician One night of passion doesn t solve everything, but it is exactly the push both Justin and Isobel need They re a perfect match in bed and out and I loved watching Isobel embrace her desires The Widow s Auction is a deliciously steamy read with two passionate protagonists and a happily ever after that s guaranteed to satisfy FTC Disclosure I received the eBook edition of this story for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Catnippy subject material for me with the rather saucy set up between the heroine and hero I loved that they were bickering rivals on the board of a school and were lighting each other s fires before they collided saucily at the widow s auction So this was a fun read. We have all heard Don t judge a book by its cover In The Widow s Auction two people learn not to judge each other by their public face Isobel Lamberton, the widowed Lady Kingsley and Justin Antony, Lord Warbrooke seem to always be on opposite sides It takes the night of the widow s auction to bring them together There they both learn that they havein common than either suspected A nice easy read with great characters and good action.
