    is the pen name of a best-selling American author of romance novels,who also writes under the pen names Deborah Martin and Deborah Nicholas.

    Biography

    Jeffries lived a normal childhood until she was seven, when her parents became missionaries and moved the family to Thailand. Over the next eleven years, Jeffries had many adventures, including being chased by a baby elephant, playing in a rain forest, and experiencing the entire series of rabies shots. Because she only had her siblings to play with, Jeffries escaped into the world of books, reading everything from comic books to classics, with romance novels being her favorites. She began making up her own stories when she was twelve, only to discover that every one of them was a romance of some sort.


    Jeffries earned a Ph.D. in English, writing her dissertation on James Joyce.While serving as a visiting assistant professor of English at Tulane University, Jeffries attempted to develop an academic work from her dissertation. Bored with this attempt, she began writing a romance novel instead. After realizing that she enjoyed writing more than teaching, Jeffries left the academic world to work as a technical writer, while writing novels at night. Although her first attempt did not sell, after ten rejections Jeffries's second book was finally picked up by Leisure. She has since sold thirty-nine novels. She has published historical romances as both Sabrina Jeffries and Deborah Martin, and contemporary paranormal romantic suspense as Deborah Nicholas. Jeffries has won the Holt Medallion Award, the Maggie, and the Booksellers' Best Award and her novels often place high on the USAToday Bestseller's list. Her novels Beware a Scot's Revenge and Let Sleeping Rogues Lie became New York Times Bestsellers.

    Jeffries writes in her home office. She also participates in a group blog called The Goddess Blogs. Because her family's schedules fluctuate, however, she sometimes does not sit down to write until the middle of the night. In her limited spare time, Jeffries spends time making jewelry, putting together jigsaw puzzles, and reading.

    Jeffries lives in Cary, North Carolina with her husband and son, Nick, who has autism.

    Hellions of Halstead Hall

    They're the scandalous Sharpes, five hell-raising siblings tainted by a shocking family legacy. Now each faces a daunting ultimatum: marry by year's end—or kiss their inheritance good-bye.

    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.

But the gambler in him can't resist when beguiling Annabel Lake proposes a wager. If she wins their card game, he must help save her family's foundering brewery. But if he wins, she must spend a night in his bed. The outcome sets off a chain of events that threatens to destroy all his plans . . . and unveils the secret Annabel has held for so long. When Jarret discovers the darker reason behind her wager, he forces her into another one--and this time he intends to win not just her body, but her heart.

    The third novel in Sabrina Jeffries's “Hellions of Hallstead Hall” series, featuring the independent and talented Lady Minerva Sharpe.

    When a charming rogue proposes she marry him to meet her grandmother's ultimatum, the Sharpe clan's strong-willed sister makes a tempting counter-offer that preserves her inheritance and ignites his imagination.

    Lady Minerva Sharpe has the perfect plan to thwart her grandmother's demands: become engaged to a rogue! Surely Gran would rather release her inheritance than see her wed a scoundrel. And who better to play the part of Minerva's would-be husband than wild barrister Giles Masters, the very inspiration for the handsome spy in the popular Gothic novels she writes? The memory of his passionate kiss on her nineteenth birthday has lingered in Minerva's imagination, though she has no intention of really falling for such a rakehell, much less marrying him.

    Little does she know, he really is a covert government operative. When they team up to investigate the mystery behind her parents' deaths, their fake betrothal leads to red-hot desire. Then Minerva discovers Giles's secret double life, and he must use all the cunning tricks of his trade to find his way back into her heart.
