Seduction in Mind by Susan Johnson

He could offer her only one thing — a week of intimate pleasure....

Samuel Lennox and Miss Alexandra Ionides cordially invite you to a most provocative game of seduction

It shall last for seven days, during which Lennox, Viscount Ranelagh, will wield his celebrated prowess with the London ladies in an attempt to add Miss Alex’s name to his list of conquests. The infamous list is long, though the duration of each liaison has been brief — and as the viscount will assure anyone, that is precisely how he likes it.

The lady, for her part, an accomplished artist and benefactress of various charities, has no wish to be a mere plaything. Although a week of intimate pleasure with a man of Ranelagh’s legendary skills would be memorable...

As for the other players — irate parents, designing debutantes, a scheming ex-mistress, even a love-struck young man with ideals — all seem intent on meddling. But the viscount is single-minded when it comes to seduction, and Miss Alex is in his sights.

Come see who wins in this amorous game!

This is my third book of Ms. Johnson and once again, compared to SINFUL, this one pales and is somewhat a disappointment. I find this book a little on the light-weight in terms of the plot, the romance and the character development. It is only heavy in one thing and that is sex. Sam and Alex are likable in most part but not impressive nor do they leave intriguing marks. Villains are effortless and twisters were too easy to feel any excitement or relief. There's inconsistencies here and there, in terms of character portrayals, dialogue and dates of scenes. What bothered me most are the sex scenes, which in most part I find rather unnecessary. It's too explicit and could be bordered to soft porn materials. The dialogue and some of the vocabulary used are also too obscene for my liking. Mind you, I've read and enjoyed light and even heavy sex scenes in my romance reading, provided it's mixed with passion or affection. I expect a more lovable and heart warming love-making scenes in my romance books. This is not under erotica genre, afterall. The main essence of SEDUCTION IN MIND is simply lust and sex. Since Sam and Alex couldn't keep their hands off each other, they decided they are in love and will get married to save the trouble! Ugh....not my kind of romantic reading material. The reason why I didn't rate this book lower than 3 stars despite my above complaint is primarily because I read the book all the way to the end without having to drag myself. Base on the three books I've read of Susan Johnson, she is never dull. Her style of risque will challenge readers to read on. There's also moments of treats such as the tasty banters between the Sam and Alex - that have brought smile to my face. So, In fact, if you already have this book on hand, I'd say go for it and read it. Who knows you might enjoy it more than I have. However, I would not recommend this book as one of those MUST READ or the one you have to go out of your way to get.

I'm a great Susan Johnson's fan & I always run out to buy her books but this book was a disappointment ( just like 'Temporary Mistress'). It is just the story of 2 selfish & very petulant man and woman. A novel with no plot or emotions just sex scenes that aren't very interesting either. It breaks my heart but this book is a flop in her work. I'm very surprised because I loved other books of hers like: Taboo, Silver Flame (INCREDIBLE!),Pure sin, Sweet Love, Survive. I really hope this is just temporary because she's one of the best in the genre.

In 1878 London, widower Viscount Samuel Lennon cynically looks at a nude painting by the artist Sir Leighton. Feeling everything is for sale, the wealthy Sam tries to ¿buy¿ the model, widow Alexandra Ionides, but she rejects his offer. Alex worries that she found herself desiring the arrogant Sam. The next day, she spurns another offer by Sam.

Eventually, Sam and Alex agree to go to an exhibition together where they talk about their mutual attraction and lust for one another. They go to her house and share sex and follow-up by making love in the garden. Next they go to his house, but his former lover makes wild accusations before being removed from the premises. Instead, of staying, Sam and Alex travel to his city apartment where they share more sex. They continue to make love with both striving for sexual superiority. As outside pressure mounts to break them apart, both wonder where this heated love affair will go especially when they leave the sheets.

NY Times best-selling author Susan Johnson out climaxes herself with her latest erotic romance, SEDUCTION IN MIND. This Victorian tale focuses on the sex scenes and profanities that at times overwhelm a captivating story line of two individuals, afraid of commitment, falling in love in spite external interference and pressure to the contrary. The hero is either not human or Guinness material with how often he can get it up and the heroine is always ready for another round of hardball. Fans of XXX romances will desire Ms. Johnson¿s latest tale, but better keep a stud handy.
