I have to admit, I haven't read any of the previous installments in this series -- the premise of this particular series isn't really my cup of tea. But I thought I'd give "Let Sleeping Rogues Lie" a chance. After all, I have enjoyed other novels that Sabrina Jeffries has written, and really given how popular the feisty heroine type currently is, I rather thought the notion of having the hero, who happens to be a rake, give the pupils of the Mrs. Harris School For Young Ladies lessons on how to detect a rake, as a plot device, was a rather good one. Unfortunately, "Let Sleeping Rogues Lie" didn't really live up to expectations.

In order to gain custody of his niece, confirmed bachelor and rake, Anthony Dalton, Viscount Norcourt, needs to convince the courts that he is a changed man. And the first step in his campaign is to get his niece enrolled in Mrs. Harris School For Young Ladies. Unfortunately, Mrs. Harris, the school principal, is leery about helping the unrepentant rake, that is until one of the teachers, the school's practical science teacher, Madeline Prescott, comes up with a scheme: have Norcourt give the senior girls lessons on how to detect a rake and avoid him, while Madeline and Mrs. Harris observe him to see if the man is sincere about trying to change his ways and become more circumspect. The Viscount is annoyed but desperate for the ladies' help, and so he agrees to the scheme, but soon finds himself fascinated by Madeline. The lady claims to be immune to his charms -- can Norcourt tempt the lady into a dalliance?

When I say that the book didn't live up to expectations, I don't mean that the book was badly written.

sabrina jeffries has been on my auto-buy list for years now and although i still anticipate her future releases, i feel as though this book is one of her weakest offerings.

ms. madeline prescott is a physician's daughter with a love for nature and mathmatics. after one of her father's patients dies under mysterious circumstances, she and her father are forced to flee from the scandal. she ultimately becomes a teacher at a girls school, all the while hiding her past from her boss while also determined to meet the man who can obsolve her father of guilt.

anthony dalton is a second-son suddenly thrust into the role of viscount after his brother and sister-in-law are killed. he is engaged in a bitter battle for custody of his young niece with the abusive aunt and uncle who raised him. he's desperate to get his niece enrolled into the school as he feels it will help his case against his relatives. unfortunately, he's known as a rake bent on debauchery, and therefore, needs all the help he can get.

madeline, realizing anthony can help her in her quest to prove her father's innocence, bargains with him. after they come to terms, she makes a desperate plea to the headmistress to allow his niece entry. despite (or perhaps because of) his reputation, he is ultimately hired to teach the girls how to recognize a rogue. if he proves successful, his niece will be admitted to the school.

and here is where the story first goes wrong. a known rake getting a job in a girls school is unbelievable. this guy wasn't a play rogue, he was known for screwing around and getting high and drunk. no way he should get a job at a girls school during this time period, even if it is only temporary.

I thought this was an excellent addition to the School for Heiresses series. I will agree with a few of the other reviewers that have mentioned that a lot of negative traits about the hero and heroine were brought to the forefront. However, from my perspective this only added to their humanity in making them more real. All of us have some weaknesses or certain "logical to us" thoughts that we tend to let rule us a bit more than they should at times. I felt like that is what we saw a great deal of with both Madeline and Anthony. Being a somewhat scientific (bordering on nerdy/geek) person myself, I found the perspective and approach of both Madeline and Anthony completely realistic and enjoyable and honestly a bit refreshing considering we don't often come across characters such as these in your "typical" romance novel.

I thought the intimate scenes were incredibly hot and the tension that was built right from the opening scenes was done nicely. It kept the story moving along at an enjoyable pace and each encounter between the characters seemed to raise that sexual tension a notch or two every time.

There were some comments regarding how Anthony and Madeline at times were each deceiving the other to the point of selfishness and yet were willing to accept the other's reasoning for some of their less than admiral behavior. For me...that is life. Both Anthony and Madeline were facing some very difficult (to put it mildly) events in their lives that required they focus selfishly on their own goals. When you first meet someone...no matter how attracted you are to them, you are not going to put their needs ahead of yours if you are facing a very dire situation.
