Welcome to Thorncliff Manor, where London's elite mix, mingle, and may even find their heart's desire . . .

There are thousands of things Christopher, Viscount Spencer, would rather do than hunt for a bride, especially since experience has taught him that women are not to be trusted. Then he finds the intriguing Lady Sarah scrambling around in Thorncliff's conservatory and he is instantly charmed by her passionate nature. But why is she so intent on avoiding him?

Lady Sarah would make the perfect bride for a peer—if not for a tarnished past that she's hiding from the ton. A stay at Thorncliff Manor was meant to help her plan for her future, not fall in love. Yet Christopher's kisses are irresistible, his gallantry enticing. When her secret stands to be revealed, will the truth ruin their dreams of happiness?

Born in Denmark, Sophie Barnes spent her youth traveling with her parents to wonderful places all around the world. She's lived in five different countries, on three different continents, and speaks Danish, English, French, Spanish, and Romanian.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't wait for the next book in this series! Fantastic job of describing the characters and their emotions. Lord and Lady Andover, Sarah's parents, and Mr. Denison, the man she will have to marry are hateful. Sarah is so sweet, she does not deserve the way they treat her because of her mistakes. She is resigned to her fate, but then she meets Christopher and begins to secretly dream of a different future. What starts off as friendship soon turns to more with a little meddling from their hostess and his family. Christopher's sisters are great and his brother Richard is intriguing, I hope he gets his own story. Highly recommended - I can't wait for the next book in this series! ARC via Edelweiss

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Predictable but Enjoyable 3.5 Stars The title of the book hints at a scandalous and sensual Lady Sarah but she is very far from that. Lady Sarah has spent the last five years making up for her past indiscretion, one with the potential to ruin her reputation and the latest scheme by her father and step-mother to make her pay involves giving her away in marriage to a very detestable and lecherous older gentleman. On a trip to Thorncliff Manor to meet her intended, she meets Christopher Heartly,Viscount Spencer. Christopher is obligated to marry but he is reluctant to do so because he has experienced heartbreak and is not willing to open himself up to that again. He finds himself spending time with Lady Sarah and convinced that she is scheming to trap him into marriage, he is quite rude to her. However, they gradually begin to enjoy each other’s company and Christopher is quite taken with the outspoken Lady Sarah. The story is predictable but an enjoyable one all the same as the main characters go from antagonists to friends to more. There is also the predictable cast of secondary characters – the insufferable parents, the eccentric older woman dispensing advice and manipulating the main characters for their own good and the odious and dirty older man. The pace is slow but steady and the heat level is quite tame. My only issue with the story was that for an outspoken and spirited person, Lady Sarah was uncharacteristically a doormat in her responses to her parents and her circumstance. In spite of that, LADY SARAH’S SINFUL DESIRES is a nice friends to lovers story and I will be checking out the rest of the series, especially for a story on Christopher’s younger brother Richard. *I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.
