Overview

Scandalous and provocative, The Seven Secrets of Seduction is an intoxicating insight into the mind of men and the desires of women—and the book has all the ton talking.

Secret #1: Every good seduction begins with a baited hook . . .

Well-educated, but not part of society, Miranda Chase is just as captivated by the erotic pages as everyone else in London. Intrigued by the layers she sees beneath the book's surface, she writes an editorial about it, never realizing that her passionate words will draw an actual viscount to her uncle's bookshop.

Maximilian, Viscount Downing, has very particular ideas about passion and sees truth only in desire. He freely flaunts his sensual power and seeks nothing more than another conquest—the one that could justify his entire debauched existence. But Miranda's blend of innocence, trust, and love cause a strange thing to happen on the way to this seduction. Something that just might threaten the very fabric of his jaded heart . . .

    The Agony! Oh,the horrible terrible agony!

    I have NEVER written a book review before. The pain in my head and the bloody sockets were my eyes once resided before I read this drivel called a novel demanded it. Please reader,be warned, save your the time, money,and above all sanity and do not buy this book. I felt like I was watching a horror movie and I was praying the girl would get slashed to death by the deranged serial killer escaped from a mental hospital after years of mental and emotional damage. How can one heroine be so idiotic mystifies but if I had to read one more page of this nonsense to find out I will chose to remain in the dark blindy looking out from the gaping holes where my eyes use to be.

    I Also Recommend:

    Fantastic Book, but disappointing ending.

    The characters of this book are very sweet, and the plot is a definite surprise. *Warning: May contain SPOILERS* It was a little done plot of the high born male with the lowly shop female, and them falling in love. It was a very unique and interesting story of them falling in love, but the last 50 pages began to get extremely frustrating, because it really looked like they weren't going to end up married, just as lord and mistress- with the very real concerns of he class difference in mind- but then all of a sudden they're together and the book is over. There is no mention as to how they were going to address the class gap that had been all important throughout the rest of the 200+ page book. I was even confused if they got married or not- I had to re-read the last couple of pages a few times to understand it completely. The rest of the book was so good, the ending was just a complete let-down.
    Overall, I did enjoy the rest of the book enough that I found it worth the $8 that I paid for it, because it was a sweet story. And this book also allows you to consider your own endings, if you didn't like the actual one as I didn't.

    Fits True Seduction

    I read a few of the reviews and for the anon who titlef it "T" No, seduction doesn't necessarily mean a naked couple briefly teasing each other before just having sex. Seduction doesn't always lead to sex either. It's more about the sensual side of life. What you described was more like a pathetic porn plot than any resemblance of seduction. While I agree with several others about the difference between the enticing beginning and the slightly confusing, seemingly incomplete, unfinished ending (Heather18 stated the truth quite well), I do feel that the story does capture a true sense of seduction.

    T

    Isn't seduction where a naked woman sneaks up behind a man and strips of his clothes and then they start wrestlling or kissing? Or where a man and woman take a bath or shower together?To sum it up, isn't it where a naked man and woman do stuff on top,or next to each other?

    Great beginning, awful end

    Heather18 couldn't have explained it any better. For the first 300 pages of this book, I was enthralled and couldn't put it down, but I almost didn't finish it because the last 50 or so pages were so frustrating. And when I did force myself to finish it, I was completely unsatisfied with the ending.

    Oddly enough, I don't think I would have been as disappointed with the book as a whole if the beginning hadn't been so good. If it had been less enjoyable from the beginning, I wouldn't have been as emotionally involved in the story and I wouldn't have cared so much/been so angry about the way the last part played out.

    But the closer I got to the end, the more I knew I wouldn't be happy with it. As the number of remaining pages got smaller and smaller, for the life of me I couldn't figure out how she was going to wrap it up well. It's almost like her editors told her it was too long and she needed to wrap it up, pronto. She would have been better off cutting out a lot of the nonsense in the last 50 pages and using the extra room to make the ending more comprehensible, believable and satisfying.

    If you had asked me at page 300 if I would recommend it, it would have been a resounding yes, but now I'm not so sure.

    intelligent amusing Regency romance

    In 1820 in London, bookshop clerk Miranda Chase reads the top selling book in the city, The Seven Secrets of Seduction; as is everyone else. The book flies off the shelf. Unlike the vast majority of readers who see it as porn, Miranda sees the novel as a well written erotic tale of love with strong characters.

    Viscount Maximilian debates the merit of the book insisting it is babble. He enjoys arguing with Miranda as he is attracted to her. To get her inside his house and from there his bedroom, he invites her to organize his vast library. There she finds him to be caring and passionate though hidden by his cynicism while he discerns her to be charming and intelligent. Miranda writes to her pen pals she is in love, but he is to wed high society not a shop clerk so she asks them should she accept Maxim's offer of kept mistress.

    This is an intelligent amusing Regency romance starring a likable lead couple and the title book that provides the seven secrets. Readers will relish the metamorphosis of Maxim from cynic to believer as he as much as his beloved learn the key secrets lessons of seduction and enchantment, but mostly of love. Anne Mallory provides the sub-genre audience with a refreshing historical.
