Seductive as Flame

( 15 )

Overview

It was common gossip that there wasn't a woman alive safe from the seductive skills of Alec Munro, Earl of Dalgliesh. Except for Zelda MacKenzie, a magnificent, flame-haired Scottish beauty who makes it clear she has no interest in libertines.

How lovely, Alec thought. How irresistibly challenging.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Johnson’s fourth 1890s romance (after Sweet as the Devil) skimps on the plot but not the passion. Griselda MacKenzie is brazen, confident, and independent. At a country house party, she’s introduced to wildly handsome libertine Alec Munro, earl of Dalgliesh. He wants her in his bed, but she hesitates because he’s married. This morality feels out of place among the cast of adulterous thousands, especially considering how quickly Zelda succumbs to temptation, and reformed rakes extolling monogamy are hard to take seriously. Zelda loves sex, Alec is only slightly daunted by her forward manner, and the bedroom scenes feel like one long and somewhat repetitive bacchanal. Only true fans will be able to plow through the endless orgy and wearisome discussions of how and when Alec will divorce his wife so he and Zelda can be together forever. (Dec.)

    Very erotic and romantic

    Susan Johnson's books are hit and miss for me but this one was great. I love how her characters are flawed, not in the usual romance way - even the female lead, even the men after they are redeemed by love and usually become perfect sometimes have a selfish thought or do something just because they want to. Not always politically correct but sometimes laugh out loud funny. And Zelda & Alec's story was super.

    fun erotic late Victorian romance

    In 1894 independent Griselda "Zelda" MacKenzie returns home from Brazil after a successful orchid hunting trip. At the Duke and Duchess of Groveland's gala, Zelda in a strange outfit with odd jewels meets womanizing earl, Alec Munro. Though married to the nasty Violetta, he makes it clear that he wants the exotic Scottish beauty in his bed. Although bed hopping has become an acceptable activity amongst the Ton unless you are caught, she is attracted to him but has doubts due to his marital status.

    However, her desire supersedes her caution. Zelda and Alec make love numerous times as neither can have enough sex with the other. He promises his beloved he will divorce his wife so they can marry. However, both are concerned over the well being of his six year old son Chris, who he loves though he is the offspring of his wife's first husband.

    Although the story line is extremely thin except in the boudoir, fans of Susan Johnson will enjoy her latest erotic late Victorian romance (see Gorgeous as Sin, Sexy as Hell and Sweet as the Devil). The boudoir scenes are scintillating, slow and steamy; while the relatively ethical lead couple is a nice pairing of a feisty female with a philandering married male.

    The book was going good, the best of the series... But then it just dropped! Seriously, the way it ended felt like, what the heck? It ended more in the way a book ends when it has a sequel to follow it, but it does not seem, at the moment, like there will be a sequel. This book is the latest in a 4 book series, in the sense that the same characters appear, not that the story continues. If she continues this story in a follow up book, it would make it great, however I don't think this will be the case. I would give it more stars because the content was good, but with the ending given I almost feel cheated.

    Lame.

    Boring story line that was sadly predictable. Not a fan of her books and will no longer waste my money! Dear readers do not waste your money!
