Review: Then Comes Seduction by Mary Balogh

seductionFrom the back of the book:

Then Comes Seduction

In a night of drunken revelry, Jasper Finley, Baron Montford, gambles his reputation as London’s most notorious lover on one woman. His challenge? To seduce the exquisite, virtuous Katherine Huxtable within a fortnight. But when his best-laid plans to awry, Jasper devises a wager of his own. For Katherine, already wildly attracted to him, Jasper’s offer is irresistible: to make London’s most dangerous rake fall in love with her. Then Jasper suddenly ups the ante. Katherine knows she should refuse. But with scandal brewing and her reputation in jeopardy, she reluctantly agrees to become his wife. Now, as passion ignites, the seduction really begins. And this time the prize is nothing less than both their hearts….

This is the second book in the Huxtable series by Mary Balogh. I enjoyed this book even more than book 1, which I liked a lot. Katherine is a great character. Known as a beauty, she is determined to fall in love and only marry once she has found her true love. Jasper, Baron Montford, is a cynic who doesn’t believe in love only lust. These two are very different, but are a perfect couple. Katherine helps Jasper learn about love. I really enjoy the way Ms. Balogh writes dialogue between her characters. I can hear the conversation in my head. I also liked how things didn’t happen quickly for the characters. There was time between when the infamous wager is made and when the couple finds their happy ending!

the book girl gives THEN COMES SEDUCTION 4/5!

  1. Pretty cool post. I just stumbled upon your site and wanted to say
    that I have really liked reading your posts. Anyway
    I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon!

  2. I read this book last week! I don’t use a rating for my books, but if I did, I’d say a 4.5! I loved the first one too! Right now I’m halfway through with Margaret’s book, THEN COMES LOVE. Absolutely love it too! I liked that I could read the book series of the Huxables closer together. The brother’s book is the hard cover so I’m hoping to get from the library since its hard for me to buy a hard cover, I usually wait for the paperback but I love this series too much. Con’s book won’t be out for another year!!

    I’ll be watching for you reading AND AT LAST COMES LOVE and your thoughts on it!

  3. I finished AND AT LAST COMES LOVE last week and am now reading SEDUCING AN ANGEL. I love the whole series. Meg’s book was my favorite so far…I think it was much more emotional and deep than the other tow. Meg and her man has a lot of past hurt to get past. I’m not sure how I feel about Stephen’s book yet…the female main character hasn’t clicked for me, but I’m sure she will.

    I can’t wait for Con’s book…he is such a mystery and I can’t wait to find out what happens!
