Review & Giveaway: The Trouble With Seduction by Victoria Hanlen


The Trouble with Seduction
by Victoria Hanlen

GENRE: Historical Romance


BLURB:


Rebellious, Scandalous and Irredeemable

Sarah, Lady Strathford is ready for a little harmless frivolity with a man of her own age and her own appetites…surely that’s not too much to ask! After the death of her beloved husband years before Sarah is ready for an adventure… Enter the dashing, roguish – and baffling – Mr Cornelius Ravenhill.

Ravenhill, however, is not the gentleman he seems, and soon Sarah finds herself battling against the corrupt and harsh world around her as it threatens to destroy all she holds dear. The question is, will her seduction at the hands of Mr Ravenhill prove to be her saviour or her downfall?

My Review:




It 's a so funny and exciting novel that is really hard to put it down. With well defined, charming characters, an engaging plot and well written story this is a fantastic story to get lost in. There are some surprises and twists that you are unsure what will happen when you turn to read the next page.
Sarah has had to marry two men more older than her to meet her father's demands. Now she is again a widow and her brother would marry her with his best friend. But Sarah wants someone her own age but also someone to love and to be happy. Her source of happiness can be Mr. Cornelius Ravenhill??
Sarah has become a strong and independent woman but she feels very lonely, without family and without a child to raise. Damen is  charming, handsome and mysterious.
I loved this book and once I started I could not put it down. It caused a late night and a very early morning to finish. It 'sa complete romance: there is much humor and scenes in which laughing out loud, there's romance and passion and there's also a touch of mystery.
If you are looking for a cute and funny book then you need to read this one.



EXCERPT


“Good morning, my lady?” Ravenhill’s playful rumble resounded around the garden.

Sarah’s finger flew to his lips. Even though she’d decided to choose proving her innocence over possible gossip, caution had been too well ingrained for her not to heed its call.

She towed him through the door and locked it behind them. The lantern she’d left to light their way glowed weakly in the narrow, rock-lined tunnel.

“Is this a secret entrance, my lady?”

She exhaled in exasperation, and whispered, “My staff’s ears could win prizes.”

Ravenhill removed his cap and hunched under the low, curved, rock ceiling. His muscular physique filled the confined space reminding her of the tight spaces they’d encountered in the rookery. How easy it would be for her to accidentally brush against him. “I prefer we not be discovered.”

Lantern light caught the glint in his eyes. A moment passed before his gaze moved beyond hers and into the tunnel.

He gestured with his cap. “I confess, I’m all aquiver to begin our search.” His drawled words sounded like veiled intimacies. He seemed in a mischievous mood… and so early in the morning.

“Mr. Ravenhill, please talk quietly. I fear our voices may carry.”

He dipped his head further. His warm breath tickled her ear. “Should I consider myself special… to be shown your secret entrance?”

Innuendo, coated with a healthy dose of charm, wove through the smile in his voice. Her insides started to flutter. Men had never flirted with her, and she didn’t know how to respond. Instead, she grasped the chain around her neck, grabbed the lantern and tripped down the passage. A door appeared on the right. Unlocking it, she lifted a tapestry and led him into a small chapel where she stepped to the altar and knelt.

“Do you pray for your past sins or your future ones, my lady?”
