Overview

The day Andrew Whitton, Earl of Hardwick chooses his fortune over the woman he loves, Drew discovers that money makes for a cold bed partner. Now, no matter how far he runs, the memory of his betrayal haunts him, and there's not enough liquor to dull the past or diminish his disgust. * Charlotte Milne trusted in happily ever after until her knight turned out to be wearing rusty armor. Drew, the scoundrel, seduced her, though she very much enjoyed the seduction by the man she's loved since childhood. Left scandalously ruined, Char flees her home intent upon forgetting Drew and proving her worth. * Separated by disloyalty and pain, each struggle to bury the memories of the other until a mandatory summons from the Duke of Danby sets them on a path of collision to Danby Castle. With the tides of irrevocable change rising, Drew must find a way to show Char that even the most selfish of rakes can be redeemed by love before the woman of his heart becomes the wife of another.

Please be advised: This novella is an expanded version of Gift of Seduction which appeared in A Summons from Yorkshire (Regency Christmas Summons Collection 1). Thank you!

I read this short novella under the title "Gift of Seduction" as part of the "A Summons From the Duke of Danby" anthology. The duke has decided it's time his grandchildren got married. He's got a stack of special licenses, and he's not afraid to use them! This story is a little darker than the others in the collection, since the couple has been broken up for a year and they have both gone their separate ways. Andrew Whitton failed to stand up to his father, so he didn't marry Charlotte Milne, the butler's daughter, as he promised he would. Now ruined, she has gone on to a life on the stage, and Andrew has tried to drink himself into a stupor. Now summoned back by the duke, Andrew is determined to try to win Charlotte back, even though she is engaged to marry another. I enjoyed seeing Andrew and Charlotte work through their problems and misunderstandings, all the while knowing that Cousin Nicholas and the Duke had things well in hand.

A light read with no passion. But good.

This was a quick read, but it provided a nice warm feeling of "love gone right". A bit of humor, and a suspense for what could happen...recommend for the romantic.
