Miranda Chase becomes captivated and intrigued by a Viscount, as she follows the local tuppenny papers account of his love life. While reading the scandalous book, she’s intrigued and drawn into the desires it contains, along with the ton. When she writes a passionate editorial about the book, it draws an unexpected visitor to her uncle’s bookshop.
Viscount Downing flaunts his passions and desires with a sensual power, while seeking yet more conquests, justifying his debauchery as helping others. He’s drawn to the book shop and intent on playing yet another game, this time with the innocent Miranda. Miranda may be innocent and trusting, but he finds she is no fool.
As his seduction begins he finds himself drawn to her, as she’s unlike any other woman he’s met before.
Love can do marvelous things according to many stories, but it has a long and winding road in the book. THE SEVEN SECRETS OF SEDUCTION is a lot different to most of the historical tales I’ve read before, as it has a freshness many don’t have. The jaded Viscount is a well drawn character and Ms. Mallory has depicted him well, so well I felt sorry for him and that is very hard to do. The hero is hot, with dark seductive eyes and a demeanor that practically grabs at you from off the pages.
The heroine thinks she’s not worth his attention, and becomes delightfully unassuming, as Maximilian pays a lot of attention to her. He also pays money for her to re-arrange his library, plus takes her out to masked events where he pretends she’s a Russian princess. This of course titillates the ton, causing more gossip than the hapless heroine is used to. Dip into this passionate book and enjoy.
