Catherine Reynolds is in London with her much older sister Victoria allegedly seeking a match. Pont in fact Catherine is in town to learn the identity of her real father, as the late kind Sir Patrick Reynolds was not. Instead one of three men rejected by her mother two decades ago is that rogue............................. Due to a couple of misfortunate incidents, Catherine cons Earl John Fine out of his horse. He already was attracted to her boldness and plans to not only get his steed back but to teach the angelic looking thief a lesson. When they meet again and again, they begin to fall in love and he agrees to help her with her quest. However, he and another suitor Lord Westerland agree to race with the stakes being her hand, something she refuses to accept so she takes control by entering the contest too............................. The obsession and courage of the lead heroine makes Catherine an intriguing Regency protagonist; on the other hand the lead male is the typical sub-genre aristocratic John Doe with an unsavory reputation falling for a unique bold woman. The story line contains an historical amateur sleuth feel to the fine romantic plot while the support cast especially Victoria and General the thoroughbred impart insight into the lead couple. Amelia Grey provides her audience with another ¿A¿ novel................................. Harriet Klausner

Delightful! A Hint of Seduction is the first book I read by Amelia Grey and I really enjoyed it. It is a delightful and light historical romance with lovable characters and great plots. The hero and heroine were sweet and witty I like how Lady Catherine spoke her mind and was determined to find out about her father. The Earl of Chatwin was a perfect charming hero and trustworthy. I am looking forward to read more books by this author. Thank you Amelia Grey

Author Amelia Grey brings readers another romp through the ton, with her latest book, A Hint of Seduction. Grey's sense of character development is the real strength of this novel. It is a light Regency novel that will leave the reader feeling like they have become acquainted with these characters and longing to know more about them. Grey uses interesting sub-plots and multi-dimensional secondary characters to move the plot forward and keep the reader hanging in the balance. With the hint of not only seduction, but a possible new series, this a book Regency fans won't want to miss! What I liked: The characterizations by Amelia Grey in A Hint of Seduction are really the star of the show here. Both Catherine and John were so well defined as hero and heroine. The reader gets a real sense of who these characters were meant to be. Her secondary characters are just as well drawn as the lead couple and lend to the possibility that more books may be forth coming.  Catherine is a resourceful young woman who has more than just marriage on her mind. Under the pretense of finding a husband she enters society with ulterior motives. She is searching for a father she has never known. I liked the fact that Grey made Catherine so inquisitive and hard to dissuade from her true goal. She was a woman on a mission in more ways than one.  John with the oh so long last name, the Earl of Chatham is also a great character. He is a consummate ladies man and has no intentions of ever changing his rakish habits, but when he practically runs down Catherine on the rode, he is stunned and doesn't recover quickly. Though eventually he knows he loves her, he still has a hard time coming to terms with the idea of marriage. All in all he seems a good sort even from the start, just a little commitment-phobic. Grey writes him as strong man, who wants nothing more than to help Catherine with her quest to find her father. The relationship between these two was sweet and tender, even though Catherine steals John's prize gelding on their first meeting and gets the gossip column rumors flowing freely. I thought Grey created a very real connection between the two characters and kept that sense of adventure alive as the book continues. It also created some steamy moments that romance readers will definitely enjoy. I really enjoyed reading about the secondary characters like Andrew and Lady Lynette, as well as, Catherine's sister Victoria. There is definitely room her for a series and ultimately I think that is where the author is going with this one, and I couldn't be happier. What I didn't like: The secondary plot featuring the identity of Catherine's father has glimpses of greatness, like the idea that perhaps John could be Catherine's half-brother. But somehow it got off track and became a little stale. When Catherine's father is finally revealed, it wasn't the satisfying punch that one might expect. It had kind of fallen flat along the way despite it's potential. The were also a few faux pas's where Regency rules and decorum were concerned that were not essential to the story, but a wee bit annoying to readers who a true fans of the Regency time period. Bottom Line: All in all this was good book. A very sweet romance, exceptional characterizations, but a little pizzazz. It didn't grab me like some romances do, however I love Amelia Grey's writing and look forward to the possibility that this may turn into a series.

This is what I read romance for. Loved the heroine an her honesty. Hero played games a bit at first but the leopard changed his spots fairly quickly as he fell for her. Good sweet romance.

After taking a spill from her horse on a dawn ride in the park, Catherine absconds with the horse that caused that spill. Although the horse's owner was less than copacetic regarding her version of borrowing, John, the Earl of Chatwin and one of the ton's most notorious bachleor's, is intrigued with the mystery lady. Soon, the gossip column is hinting at there being something more to the affair than it is, since the horse in question is John's most prized stallion. Though the earl never really wanted to marry, he begins to rethink things thanks to Catherine. There is just one tiny problem- he might be her brother. ...................... *** Fans of Regency romance will find this a comfortable read with most conventions of the genre observed. For a light and pleasant read, this will not lead you wrong. ***
