A Season of Seduction by Jennifer Haymore
I love everything about Christmas, the carols, the decorations, the traditions, so I am thrilled that seasonal books are starting to show up on the shelved. of course I’ve been singing Joy to the World since like June, and I never put away a couple of my Christmassy things, but that’s beside the point.
The story begins Nov 3, 1827 and ends with a Christmas wedding, which just makes me smile. It’s a fairly predictable romance, which I say in a positive way. I like standard romances.
Becky’s a widow whose first husband was horrible man. She’s looking for an affair, no strings attached. Jack’s something of an adventurer but is more interested in a marriage than a fling. He needs her money to pay off a blackmailer. Of course, the two fall in love, she finds out he lied, but eventually he is able to redeem himself. In the middle you have a scandal, a shooting, and a caring family. Both the hero and heroine are strong people, and to be honest I got caught up in their story.The sex scenes are steamy, not gratuitously graphic. They develop naturally in the story and are well done, hot but not so much that I was blushing.
I should probably add that my husband thinks Jack is crazy for marrying Becky. I say that if you warn a liar and thief that if they don’t leave your house you will shoot them, they should probably leave. Especially if you loved them and you feel they betrayed you.
