This was kind of middling. The characters were a bit daft at times, but nothing too terrible. The mystery wasn't all that engaging. But overall I was entertained and don't regret spending my time on it. ( )
Once again Sabrina Jeffries does an amazing job of creating characters and situations that make you want to keep reading long into the night. This book continues the great writing of the previous books in the series and yet, you wouldn't have had to read them to enjoy this book.
The struggles and difficulties that the hero, and particularly the heroine encounter make their Happily Ever After all the better.
I received a free advanced copy of this book.
Justine Eyre could narrate a takeout menu and I would listen. She's an actress, model, and most importantly, one of the best narrators on this planet. She played all the characters extremely well and made this book a pure pleasure to listen to.
Sabrina Jeffries is one of my favorite romance authors. I've read several of her books and each time have been taken away to my happy place. I've not read any of the previous book is the Sinful Suitors series. I knew from past experiences this would not be a problem, so I proceeded to feet first into the wonderful world the Jeffries creates.
The storyline is nothing really new. It's The Prince and the Pauper of sorts with a little twist. Monique Servais is a French actress who is implored by her distant royal relatives to step in and imitate her lookalike cousin Princess Aurore of Chanay because Aurore has been ill and a kingdom is at stake. Monique does this mostly to help her poor ailing grandmother. However, Baron Fulkham, and odious man she met three years earlier, recognizes Monique from the stage. Fulkham is bound by honor to report these shenanigans to the proper authorities. But an attempt on Monique's life leaves Fulkham questioning her family's motives.
I absolutely loved the main character, Monique. I love her unabashed ambition. I love the way she stood up to Fulkham. I love she was willing to do anything to protect her family. I did not have the same love for the hero of the story, Fulkham. He rubbed me the wrong way since the moment he was introduced to the heroine. He was so quick to judge, to assume. I did not understand why Monique was attracted to him. He did lighten up a bit as the story progressed, but not as much as I had hoped. And his explanation as to why he treated her that way was somewhere along the same lines as the reason little boys hit little girls is because they like him. (Disclaimer: Fulkham did not hit Monique. This was just an example.)
Fulkham was really my only problem with the story. I did like the overall storyline. Loved the narrator. And I still love the author. This book just wan't one of my favorites.
*I listened to the audiobook through a digital download provided by the publisher. This is no way influenced my opinions of this book.

I received a copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley.
I have read earlier novels in this series, but forgotten them, but it didn't seem to matter apart from a couple of places where various happily married couples appeared and commented on how happily married they were.
Here Gregory, an under-secretary in the foreign department, recognizes one of the candidates for the newly created throne of Belgium as in fact Monique, an actress he saw perform three years ago, but never forgot. The historical setting, which I learnt from the note at the end was based in fact, was very interesting. Monique was a likeable heroine, and I found this enjoyable overall, although the agonizing over whether Gregory should take Monique for his mistress or marry her or expose her or protect her became a little repetitive. You can guess what he went for in the end.
Received an ARC at no cost to author...(Netgalley) This is another author that I truly enjoy. She is a master of historical genre that peeks your interest and keeps it going thru out the book. This is a part of a series which I suggest you read them all but it is not a necessity, you wont be lost. So this is Baron Gregory Fulham books along with his love interest actress Monique Servais and their first meeting did not go well, lol..Then the sizzle begins when they meet again..Truly enjoyable Ms. Jefferies does not disappoint..Enjoy!

The Secret of Flirting by Sabrina Jeffries
Historical Romance -March 27th, 2018
4 ½ stars
Sabrina Jeffries knows how to write a Regency that sizzles with wit and passion! In The Secret of Flirting, she brings to life a heroine trying to save her beloved grandmother and a master spy who wants to uncover all of her secrets!
Gorgeous actress Monique Servias has no time for men. She works for her art and in her spare time takes care of her elderly and frequently forgetful grandmother. But her grandmother is becoming increasingly difficult to care for and an actress true to her craft only can make so much money. So when she is approached by an nobleman to impersonate the Princess Aurore of Chanay (who is ill and Monique bears a striking resemblance to her) with the promise provide full time care for her grandmother, she jumps at the chance. But Monique does not count on the clever and suspicious Baron Fulkham.
Gregory, once met Monique and was impressed by her beauty and was disconcerted that she did not fawn over him like other actresses. He remarkable and saucy personality left a deep impression on him. So when he meets the ‘Princess’ he can’t get over the idea that she is really the actress he met years before. He is determined to uncover Monique's lies and find out what she is up to. As the premiere spymaster in England, he is uniquely qualified. But something unexpected happens when their cat and mouse game turns in to an attraction neither can deny.
The latest book in the Sinful Suitors series is deliciously entertaining. I have been waiting for the overly serious and mysterious Gregory to fall in love. He has been turned off by his fellows falling under the spell of 'love' and it was fun to read the man who spurns love and romance find his mate. Because the beautiful Monique is quite as clever as he is, it makes his chase to discover her secrets all the more delightful to read. Monique keeps Gregory on his toes and tempts him to unbend his strict views. Monique is an charismatic and intelligent heroine that at first seems too good for the cold Gregory but her outlandish charms soon melt his icy exterior and bring a scorching passion to this fun Regency story.
Readers looking for an irresistible new Regency to warm them this spring will love the newest addition to the Sinful Suitors series!
Reviewed by Steph from the Bookaholics Romance Book Club
"Quick pacing, witty dialogue, and charmingly original characters set Jeffries' books apart" (Publishers Weekly, starred review), and The Secret of Flirting is the next thrilling romance in the bestselling Sinful Suitors series! The moment spymaster Baron Fulkham meets the stunning Princess Aurore of Chanay, he's positive her royal persona is a ruse and that she's actually Monique Servais, the mysterious actress he met three years before in Dieppe. But as he pursues his suspicions, he uncovers a plot of attempted assassination and betrayal that could very well destroy his career, expose his own secrets...and ruin the woman he's rapidly coming to love. The Secret of Flirting is a sizzling historical romance filled with fast-paced storytelling, an enchanting heroine, and a sexy hero, perfect for fans of Regency romance.
