I was very much surprised by how much I enjoyed To Seduce A Sinner, by Elizabeth Hoyt. Elizabeth Hoyt is a USA Today best-selling author of historical romance. She also writes contemporary romance under the pen name, Julia Harper. This book follows her other titles: The Serpent Prince, To Taste Temptation, The Leopard Prince, and The Raven Prince, with To Beguile A Beauty coming soon. Elizabeth Hoyt resides in central Illinois with her husband, two children, and three dogs.
Melisande Fleming has admired and adored Lord Jasper Vale from a distance, watching him, heartbreakingly take lover after lover, with him never knowing of her existence. But when Lord Vale yet again gets jilted at the alter on his wedding day, Melisande sees this as her opportunity, and boldly offers herself in marriage to him. Vale weds Melisande, imagining a lifeless and loveless marriage, if only to produce an heir. He soon discovers, though, that this prim and proper lady by day, is an open and wanton lover by night. Intrigued by his new wife, Lord Vale attempts to learn his Lady¿s secrets, masking the torment and nightmares from his soldiering days in the Colonies. When a bitter betrayal from the past threatens everything they hold dear, Lord Vale and Lady Melisande find they must bear everything to one another or lose everything.
Historical romances typically aren¿t my choice of genres, as I find it difficult for me to orientate to place, time, etc. This was not the case with To Seduce A Sinner. Set in 1765 England, Elizabeth Hoyt masterfully throws you into the setting, characters, and plot with a vocabulary carefully chosen and relatable characters, even for the modern day woman. Her understanding for post-traumatic stress after the horrors of war can relate to even today¿s heroes. You never even know you¿re in the real world while reading. She set up the next book, To Beguile A Beauty, very well, and yet still giving you closure to this story. Several times while following the book, you think you have learned all the secrets and horrors of the characters past, but then you are tossed another heart-wrenching one to ache over. I particularly loved the mini-subplot between the servants Mr. Pynch and Miss Suchlike, and the ¿Laughing Jack¿ introduction to every chapter.
To Seduce A Sinner, by Elizabeth Hoyt, is a skillfully, wicked, and sensuous tale, guaranteed to capture your attention and heart. Well done!

Hysterical

I read a lot of smut (and I mean a lot. Have you been on fanfiction.net?) and this goes under one of my current favorites. This book was simply hysterical at many parts, and sure, lacking at others. But not bad at all.

    Just So So

    This book wasn't as good as the first one in the series was. It was a little drawn out and I didn't just love either of the characters.....

    Not as good as I expected - a bit boring

    I was excited to read this book after reading the glorious reviews. However, I thought it was very silly and boring. I would have to say that it didn't keep my interest at all. I put the book down several times and had a hard time finishing it. The sex scenes are more ludicrous than sexy and the story drags. Didn't like the annoying Mouse either. I prefer witty repartee between the main characters, not animal bloopers.
