The Seduction of an English Lady
By Cathy Maxwell

       Colonel 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.

      The 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?

     Absolutely 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.
