[English Review] "Folly", by Sabrina York


Title: Folly
Author: Sabrina York
Format: Ebook


Synopsis: Widowed and threatened with penury by her heartless in-laws, Eleanor—Lady Ulster—hatches a plot to save herself. Determined to produce the Ulster “heir”, she seduces a stranger at a tawdry masquerade. Little does she know, this magnificent masked lover is none other than her husband’s greatest nemesis. And God knows Ulster had plenty.
Ethan Pennington is mortified to arrive at a house party and discover Lady Ulster in attendance. He has wanted her and hated wanting her—his enemy’s bride—for years. When he overhears Eleanor’s predicament and her plans to place a cuckoo in the Ulster nest, he is more than willing to oblige. The opportunity to finally claim her—while taking the revenge he craves—is more than he can resist. Ethan strikes a bargain with Eleanor, promising to provide her with the heir she so desperately needs…if she will meet his needs in return. Every decadent one of them.


Review: Still unknown to Portuguese readers, Sabrina York was, for me, a wonderful surprise. The author, who has several books published, is gifted in the way she writes her stories. Fun, dynamic and sexy, these are the first three adjectives that come to my mind to qualify this book. The 119 pages are all that it takes for the author to show her quality on the way she creates empathy between the reader and her characters. I think Sabrina has a lot of courage to try her luck and create a story which is no longer an innovation, but she takes mysterious ways that only increases the reader curiosity to keep reading and discover what will be happening next.
The story is simple and glamorous at same time, with a plot similar to other great authors like Emma Wildes and Cheryl Holt, but it becomes special and unique because it doesn’t have a lot of fillers that sometimes destroy great stories. So, in my opinion, the author has made a great choice by telling us only what mattered in order to continue the story.
About the characters, Ethan was my favorite. The typical alpha male, who loves to see women on his feet and one day he meets someone you can finally tame him. I enjoyed the scene where he finds Charles kissing Eleanor, it was so funny to see how angry he was… Eleanor, whose character was so week at the beginning, slowly shows what she can do for her happiness. They make a great couple.
In the end, I stayed curious about James and Helena…there authors are so naughty!!! For that and for liking this book so muck I want to read another book by Sabrina York. Congratulations, you have another fan.
