Book Review: A Season of Seduction by: Jennifer Haymore

A Season of SeductionPublisher: Forever
Publish Date: 1 October 2010
Origins: Publisher for Review
Format: Paperback

Although the widowed Lady Rebecca has sworn off marriage, men are another matter. London's cold winter nights have her dreaming of warmer pursuits-like finding a lover to satisfy her hungry heart. Someone handsome, discreet, and most importantly as uninterested in marriage as she is. Someone like Jack Fulton.

A known adventurer and playboy, Jack seems like the perfect choice. There's just one problem: Jack isn't interested in an affair. He needs the beautiful, mysterious Lady Rebecca to be his wife. And he doesn't have much time to persuade her. A secret from Jack's past is about to surface, and by Christmas Day he'll be either married to Rebecca or dead.

I am falling more and more in love with this author the more I read her work. I loved loved loved 'A Touch of Scandal' and already have my greedy little hands on 'A Hint of Wicked'. I haven't fallen this much in love with a historical romance author since Karen Harbaugh or Elizabeth Hoyt! I can honestly say I will eagerly await books from Jennifer Haymore and devour them once they are mine.

Let's go into what I love, errr well as much as I am able to articulate, I am still in excited frenzy over this book. I love the spirit and drive that little Becky has even after she has been through so much. I love how the drama in this story is true drama not just some fake drama where everything was a miscommunication and everything can be solved with a word. I enjoyed the sensual scenes between Jack and Becky, STEAMY! This lady can write some steam, yes she can! I err...especially love the wall scene, just saying....anyway, moving on.

This is where I would usually include something I did not like about this story...there was only one thing...Tom...he didn't feel like quite enough of a bad guy. He was a jerk yes but a redeemable jerk once properly taken care of. I love the criminals (a la William Fisk) who we all really just want to die. So meaner and more sinister is the key. Otherwise I adored this book and already started the first in this loosely linked trio. If you haven't read any of Jennifer Haymore's work...'A Season of Scandal' is a great choice! You can read any of her books and still understand the situation. Go forth and read! NOW! (sorry still stuck in renn fest mode)
