A Lady Never Surrenders by Sabrina Jeffries

Goodreads Description:

When the youngest Sharpe sister hatches a plan to gain marriage offers, the straight-laced Bow Street Runner Jackson Pinter knows he'll do whatever it takes to ruin her scheme... 

With two months left to find a husband to fulfill her grandmother’s ultimatum, Lady Celia Sharpe sets her sights on three eligible bachelors. Becoming betrothed to one of these wealthy, high-ranking men will surely prove her capable of getting married, so hopefully the wedding itself won’t be necessary for Celia and her siblings to receive their inheritance. Step two of her audacious plan is hiring the dangerously compelling Bow Street Runner Jackson Pinter to investigate the three men she’s chosen. But with Lady Celia bedeviling Jackson’s days and nights, the last thing he wants is to help her find a husband. And when she recalls shadowed memories that lead his investigation into her parents’ mysterious deaths in a new direction—putting her in danger—Jackson realizes the only man he wants Celia to marry is himself!

My Rating:

My Review:

Good ending to the series.  I totally didn't see that ending coming and so really enjoyed that.  The rest was pretty predictable but still well written and I enjoyed there read.  Celia's issues with marriage an her parents death seemed the most realistic to me and her interactions with Jackson Pinter have been building through out the series and I was very happy to see them finally shake the sheets!  If you've read the others in the series you can't skip this book.  It's definitely a series however that you can't really just read one book from, at least in my opinion.
