Historical Romance [Lancashire, England 1816]
Notes: Explicit love scenes
Seduction of an English Lady
Colin Mandland has lead men in to battle and earned their loyalty,
so how hard could it be to persuade the occupant of the Mansion
he just bought to leave?
Lady Rosalyn occupies
Maiden Hill. Those living in the Valley fear her and do what ever
she says, just to keep the peace.
When the two
meet, tempers flair and neither is willing to give in. That is,
until someone recommends that the available Colonel marry the spinster
Lady, and why not throw in a House of Commons seat as an additional
temptation? The Colonel is willing, but the Lady isn’t, and
that’s where a few lessons in wooing come in.
Colonel considers killing Lady Rosalyn with kindness, until he tires
of her snubs. Now it’s up to the Lady. Will Rosalyn give over
for what she wants most -- Maiden Hill and babies? Will the past
that held her down socially, continue to hold her back?
engaging and truly delightful, The Seduction of an English Lady
is the kind of romance that leads its readers into a relationship,
but doesn’t leave them dredging through bickering and misunderstandings.
From page one, emotions are stirred and characters evolve. The secondary
characters are just as important to the storyline as Colin and Rosalyn.
It’s through them the couple learns the truth about themselves
and each other. It’s a quick, light read with a feel good
ending. The kind I highly recommend.
