    very disappointing

    This book had an exciting prologue but then the rest fell short. It was like someone wrote the beginning and then another person wrote everything else. the characters were not likeable and the story took a weird turn. I felt no cat and mouse chase. he knew exactly who she was, and she was set on her feelings in a kind of disturbing way. It was not what I was expecting it to be.

    LOVE IT!

    I love, love, LOVE Katherine O'Neal's books, and this is no exception. If you haven't read one, give them a try. You'll be so glad you did!

    delightful erotic charmer

    For the most part the art world ignored the work of American artist Mason Caldwell that is when they were not trashing her efforts as garbage. Upset and angry Mason vows to prove the hypocrisy of her harsh critics by committing suicide. In death she becomes in as suddenly her sister Amy unveils her paintings, these same fools who disregarded her as a nothing are now claiming she was a rare talent. ---- As Amy reaps the benefit of her late sibling¿s masterpieces, art expert Richard Garrett feels something is off kilter with the grieving relative who does not act like she mourns a loss as she enters the most closed galleries in the world. Richard also has issues with Amy¿s seemingly endless supply of the late Mason¿s works. He plans to learn the truth behind the meteoric rise of the dead artist and this suddenly surfaced sibling, but he finds himself in a chess game with a master while his heart betrays him. ---- Mindful of the Dick van Dyke-James Garner 1960s movie The Art of Love, THE ART OF SEDUCTION is a delightful erotic charmer starring two antagonists falling in love. The story line is a fast-paced cat and mouse game mostly overlooking the Seine as Richard tries to prove that Mason¿s death is a sham while Amy attempts to thwart his advances. Readers will enjoy their gender war, but to know who is right requires reading about the garret in the artist not the artist in the garret. ---- Harriet Klausner
