    Sabrina Jeffries
    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.

    From New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries comes the fourth book in her dazzling and sensual School for Heiresses series — the story of a charmingly handsome rake who challenges everything a young teacher thinks she knows about passion and desire.

    "Don't let yourself be fooled, Madeline:
    once a rake, always a rake."
    — Mrs. Charlotte Harris, headmistress

    When Madeline Prescott took a teaching position at Mrs. Harris's School for Young Ladies, it was to help restore her father's reputation. Instead, she's in danger of ruining her own. The devilishly handsome Anthony Dalton, Viscount Norcourt, has agreed to provide "rake lessons" to Mrs. Harris's pupils so they can learn how to avoid unscrupulous gentlemen, and Madeline is to oversee his classes. She has always believed that attraction is a scientific matter, easily classified and controlled — until she's swept into the passionate desire that fiercely burns between her and Anthony. Nothing could be more illogical than risking everything for a dalliance with a rake — even one who's trying to behave himself. Yet nothing could be more tempting....

    Plain, bookish Elinor Bancroft is traveling with her aunt and young cousins to spend the holidays with her father, when a carriage mishap leaves the party stranded at the remote manor of Lord Martin Thorne. Also known as “the Black Baron,” he has no patience for invalids or spoiled heiresses, and children are usually terrified of him. But he gives them refuge during the snowstorm, and to keep the children out of his way Elinor helps them turn the sparse manor into a warm holiday haven for Christmas.

    Lord Thorne is none too happy about playing host to four children and two women at his least favorite time of the year. But sparks fly whenever he and Elinor are together, and pretty soon they both realize that Christmas takes on a whole new glow when you share it with the one you love.
