Alisa's Review: The Widow's Auction by Sabrina Jeffries

Kindle Edition84 pages
Expected publication: August 16th 2016 by InterMix



From Sabrina Jeffries—New York Times bestselling author ofThe Study of Seduction and The Art of Sinning—comes a sumptuous tale of a woman whose affection comes at a price...

Though Isobel Lamberton, the widowed Lady Kingsley, is confounded by her dealings with the obstinate Justin Antony, Lord Warbrooke, his commanding presence sparks something deep within her. But such romantic thoughts are for naught. For Justin’s political aspirations always come first. And Isobel’s own secret past could damage both of them permanently. 

So when Isobel’s friend talks her into participating in a scandalous auction of masked widows at a gentleman’s club, she reluctantly agrees...and soon begins to relish being an object of desire. But none desire her more than Justin, who recognizes the outspoken Isobel in disguise and sets out to teach her a lesson worth far more than money...

Not quite up there with the best  but still a great story.  I think this is just a bit different than the author's normal work, but not too far astray.
With the exception of a few details, you wouldn't know this is a Historical Romance.  And this is  quick and wonderful read.
Not quite smut reading, but still not suitable for under age readers.  
With a title like The Widow's Auction, you could have any number of storylines.  However this one was great and the author wrote this book wonderfully.  
Its not just about the auction, its not just about sex.  Its about finding pleasure, with the bonus of finding love.
