    Ms. Carr excels at creating Heroes and heroines that are society outcasts, and gives them their much deserved HEA. ~Under The Covers

    Set in the late 1700, Olivia is ahead of her time. She knows exactly how society works and knows how cruel it can be to those who are outcasts. After becoming a widow from a sham of a marriage, Olivia has become the talk of the town. However, she is done with the drama and vows to get away somehow. Luckily, she received a proposal she could not refuse and Livy had figured out a way. Drunken Roland Devere had made an offer of marriage that he could not even remember. Now placed in a predicament where his honor is on the line, he must live up to the bargain Livy had propositioned him. However, he will certainly make the best of things and he is on a mission to get to know Olivia.

    Ms. Carr excels at creating Heroes and heroines that are society outcasts, and gives them their much deserved HEA. Olivia, a Lady shamed by her bigamist husband and Devere a second son betrothed is certainly not common. I love that Devere and Olivia are in a forced situation but still managed to fall in love without being rushed. I think that was possible because of Devere. I love how he pursued Olivia, he definitely knows how to court a lady. He knew what and when to say or do things. Oh, and he absolutely knows how to pleasure a woman.

    The secondary story between Margo (Devere’s sister) and Philip (Olivia’s Father) was also a treat. Similar to Olivia, their story is also getting a second chance at love. My only complain is that I had a hard time seeing Philip as a sexy man the way Margo saw him. I had this “older father figure” image of him and it took me a bit to get use to seeing him as a vibrant man. But overall, it was a great addition to the story.

    There were a few cameos of characters from the last two books. It’s always good to see how they are doing after their HEA. And, though I am one not to recommend reading out of order, these books can be read as stand alone. I can assure you, there are no big spoilers that can ruin your read if you decide to start with this book.

    Phenomenal!

    ABOUT THE BOOK: The League of Second Sons: A secret society of younger sons, sworn to aid and abet each other, no matter the scandal or cost...Their fathers and brothers may rule the world, but they run it, and when it comes to passion, they refuse to accept second best.

    After the scandalous demise of her marriage, Lady Olivia Carlow knows the rakes of the ton will think her fair game. So when a letter arrives bearing an indecent offer from the incorrigible Roland Devere, she seizes the opportunity. Turning the tables on the notorious rogue, she blackmails him into playing her betrothed for the season. But no matter how broad his shoulders or chiseled his features, she will never fall prey to his suave charm.

    When Roland boasted he'd be the first into Lady Olivia's bed, he couldn't have imagined that behind those brilliant blue eyes lurked a vixen with a scheme of her own. Still, Roland is not about to abandon his original wager. If anything, learning that the lovely Olivia is as bold as she is beautiful makes him more determined to seduce her into never saying "never" again.

    REVIEW: I loved how this piece started off. An entirely different spin for the author on how to draw the hero and heroine together. I literally laughed – out loud.

    Olivia is a dashing woman who refuses to let anyone walk all over her. She has her own mind set on what she wants and what she is going to do to get it – or not – whatever be the case for her. Roland is the typically male who thinks nothing is going to hold him down. That all ends – abruptly – as Olivia gets her “hands” on him.

    The buildup of their story was great. It didn’t seemed rushed, nor did it go too slow. The chemistry was on key and when the fireworks finally happened, I was dripping with anticipation.

    I gave this five stars as I found the plot very well done and I loved the spin the author put on it with the whole “widow” thing. It was one that even the reader was surprised about but it fit the story, and the characters.

    Phenomenal read and a great time!

    RIPE FOR SEDUCTION by Isobel Carr is a wonderful Regency Histori

    RIPE FOR SEDUCTION by Isobel Carr is a wonderful Regency Historical Romance. #3 in "The League of Second Sons",but can be read as a stand alone.

    "The League of Second Sons
    A secret society of younger sons, sworn to aid and abet each other, no matter the scandal or cost . . ."

    Filled with passion,scandal,trust,secrets,a wager,second chances,a scheme or two,a bit of danger,and love. Two interweaving stories of the love of a father, and the love of a sister for her brother. Margo (Devere's sister) and Philip (Olivia's Father)may be able to find a second chance in love too.Lady Olivia Carlow,after a disastrous marriage,Lady Olivia must become betrothed to stop some of the rakes seeking her flavors. Roland Devere,a second son,a scandalous rake,and is determined to be the first in Olivia's bed. But,things do not always happen as you want. An interesting plot with strong characters that will surely capture your heart. A great read. Ms. Carr is a great storyteller. Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley.

    RATING: 4

    HEAT RATING: MILD

    Ripe for Seduction is the third book in The League of Second Son

    Ripe for Seduction is the third book in The League of Second Sons series.  I have not read the others yet, but I did not feel as if there were any gaps in the story.  It can be read as a stand-alone book.  Overall, it’s a fantastic historical romance filled with great characters, a flowing storyline and a different spin on the usual ruined woman/widowed woman storyline.   The dual romances and their great chemisty were a fantastic addition to this story.
