#Review: THE TROUBLE WITH SEDUCTION by Victoria Hanlen

5 of 5 stars

Lady Sarah Strathford has mourned her beloved husband for two years and is ready to put away her mourning dresses. She would love nothing more than to fall passionately in love with a gentleman or, at the very least, have an affair with one. The problem is that her brother is pushing her into the arms of his best friend, Lord Lumsley, but Sarah wants nothing to due with his match-making. When the dashing Cornelius Ravenhill offers his assistance in solving a mystery surrounding her late husband’s death, Sarah is smitten. What she doesn’t know, however, is that Mr. Ravenhill has his own reasons for getting close to her. Will he be the passionate lover she’s looking for or the dashing rake that will break her heart?

I really enjoyed this story. The characters of Sarah and Damen were rich and their interactions with each other wonderful and believable. Damen wants to find out who attacked his brother Cornelius, but he’s tied up in knots about deceiving Sarah. Sarah, against her better judgment, is falling for the handsome rake. The mystery they become embroiled in is full of intrigue and danger and it will take all of Damen’s wits and brawn to bring them through it. I loved seeing Sarah’s character grow from a meek shell of a woman into one full of self-confidence. Ms. Hanlen has written a compelling love story—one full of twists and turns that will keep you glued until the final pages. Fans of historical romance will definitely enjoy this book! Highly recommended.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.



Rebellious, Scandalous and Irredeemable

Sarah, Lady Strathford is ready for a little harmless frivolity with a man of her own age and her own appetites…surely that’s not too much to ask! After the death of her beloved husband years before Sarah is ready for an adventure… Enter the dashing, roguish – and baffling – Mr Cornelius Ravenhill.

Ravenhill, however, is not the gentleman he seems, and soon Sarah finds herself battling against the corrupt and harsh world around her as it threatens to destroy all she holds dear. The question is, will her seduction at the hands of Mr Ravenhill prove to be her saviour or her downfall?
