Overview

He wants to hate her, but a little lust wouldn’t hurt…

The only emotion Leah Grainger can muster when thinking of her dead husband is relief. Until she learns his gambling debt threatens her beloved farm and the child she wanted to protect from the rootless existence she grew up with.

The last straw? Her husband’s brother demands a meeting. When she charges into his office to tell him she won’t let another Grainger screw up her life, the startlingly handsome, former oil rig wildcatter goes for the jugular. He’s claimed legal guardianship of her daughter, bought her mortgage…and he’s moving in.

The final email Mac received from his suicidal brother blamed Leah for everything. If it’s the last thing he does, he plans to protect his niece. Even if it means using his millions to gain the upper hand. And hardening his heart against the beautiful Leah’s protests of innocence.

Yet something seems off. Leah is nothing like the uncaring woman his brother described. She’s warm, loving…and when a new threat to her child surfaces and she reaches out to him in need, his body won’t let him say no. Even when her last secret forces him to make a decision that exposes his most closely guarded possession. His heart.

Contains tug-your-heart love, raise-the-roof lust, a marriage of convenience and hot sex that will give a whole new meaning to the word “wildcatter”.

    Fantastic Book

    Secrets and Seduction is an amazing heartfelt roller coaster ride with high octane lust, unexpected twists and turns, and a story book ending that makes you want to jump right off the ride and do it all over again.

    Under the hot Auckland sun, two people are forced together to discover and heal from the past. Things are not what they seem. Lies, scheming and secrets are plentiful and the truth is a hard thing to find when it is buried under the weight of countless secrets. Sometimes the hardest thing to do in life is to follow your heart, consequences be damned, especially when the truth can be found in the loving eyes of a child.

    There are two things that are important to Leah Grainger; her daughter and her land. After losing her husband, Leah has to work long and hard to make a life for them. It's not like she had the love and support from her husband, quite the opposite, he was a cold heartless man who only had love for himself and no one else. With her new found strength, Leah will protect what is hers. She will not allow another Grainger man to ruin her life, certainly not her husband's devilishly handsome older brother, Mac.

    Mac Grainger is a man with a simple mission. He is going to protect his niece Charlee, the last of his family. His childhood was a lonely sad existence. Mac is not going to allow his niece to be neglected and emotionally abused like he was. Mac sets his plans into motion to ensure her protection and safety, no matter the consequences to his sister-in-law, Leah, or even his heart.

    Secrets and Seduction is a well written contemporary romance. The story was never predictable and tedious. Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen Ms. Beckenham shocked me with a different outcome. I did figure out a secret or two, but the way she revealed them was exceptional. The love scenes were sizzling and perfect in depiction. You felt the steam rising from the pages. She kept me enthralled and guessing the whole book, a significant quality in an author.

    Secrets and Seduction is the type of story you want to read more about. I have no desire to imagine what happened to them, I need Ms. Beckenham to tell me. She wrote her characters beautifully and I want to know what she has in store for them, because whatever I can come up with, she will always top. This will be a permanent addition to my library and Jane Beckenham is now a must read author for me.

    Not what expected

    The romance was missing that 'feel' to it.
