Overview

The Seduction of His Wife by Janet Chapman

He set out to seduce her for all the wrong reasons -- but found himself falling in love with her for all the right ones.

Alex Knight is dead -- or so everyone thinks. A widowed logger baron with a risk-taking streak, he took on a South American engineering project and was reported dead after a rebel attack. So when he turns up back in Maine very much alive, his grieving family is shocked. But the biggest shock is Alex's, when he discovers he's now married -- to a woman he's never met.

Sarah Banks is ready for a change from running a quiet Bed&Breakfast, and working for the Knight family offers not only a bigger opportunity, but also the family life she yearns for. So she's glad to help secure custody of Alex's orphaned children, whom she's come to love, by marrying their father by proxy before he's legally declared dead. But when Alex returns, the sexy, determined woodsman upends all of Sarah's plans. Because suddenly she's married to a passionate stranger with an easy smile...and tumbling headlong into a fiery dance of seduction.

Definitely one of Chapman's best. I read it in one day while doing the laundry and I did not want to set it down when it was time to fold the clothes while still warm from the dryer. It runs the gamete of emotions from touching to funny to suspenseful. Some may think Sarah's character is too old-fashioned and criticize her inability to drive as sexist. I, however, laughed through her driving escapades; after all, she did grow up on a small inland and did not have the need before.it also disclosed her personality *the need for speed*. I think Chapman more than makes up for any stereotyping in Sarah's other abilities and with how she handles the bad guys at the end.

After spending eleven days in the Brazilian Jungle fleeing rebels, an exhausted Alec Knight comes home to Frost Lake, Maine. He looks forward to seeing his two kids ten years old Delaney and seven years old Tucker, his two brothers and his dad Grady. Instead a beautiful woman points a shotgun at him claiming her name is Mrs. Alec Knight. Apparently Grady forged his marital signature to protect his children from his late wife¿s parents. He assumes Sarah is a gold-digger. That night an exhausted Alec shares a bed with Sarah as that is the only one set up since she is cleaning all the others while everyone else is away. During the night they make love, but he is stunned that she is a virgin since she insists she is a widow. Angrily, he throws her out of their house. Grady arrives a few hours later and angrily tells his son that Sarah was wed to a gay man and married him to protect his kids that she loves. Alec knows he judged Sarah like she was his late wife and goes after her pleading with her to come back if not for Grady for the kids. She reluctantly agrees, but plans to leave soon. As they become acquainted they fall in love, but first they must stop smugglers and then he must persuade her he loves her. --- Leaving her delightful Highlander novels aside, Janet Chapman shows her versatility with this interesting contemporary romance containing a delightful twist of they married before they met. The strong support cast augments the tale with insight into the hero. Though the confrontation with the intelligent and tough smugglers seem to simple, fans will appreciate the after marriage courtship and love between two deserving souls and look forward to Grady¿s next machination. --- Harriet Klausner

I love all Janet Chapman books, but the first in the 'Logging' books was my favorite of this series. I enjoyed the Highlander series too and the Puffin Harbour series very much. The story is a nice light read. I found it really enjoyable and romantic without it being overly 'fluffy'. Alex and Sara are a nice couple and I enjoyed all the different characters involved. I hope Janet continues with this series and doesn't stop with just the two. I couldn't put it down.

This is a great book. I couldn't put it down and finished it in two nights. I can't wait to read the other stories in this series!! Oh and I thought her references to her other books was very creative!! Go out and pick this one up for your library.

I really enjoyed this book. It had everything I look for. Romance w/a plot. The only thing I found annoying was the obvious plugs for her previous series (The Seductive Impostor and The Dangerous Protector) throughout the whole book. She even went so far as to include excerpts. If you can get past the obvious advertising I defiantly recommend this book.

This is light, and fun reading. The story line will keep you involved. The character read well. This author is one I have read quite a bit of, but this book is one of my favorites of hers. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do (I like it enough to reread it every once in a while.)

This is a feel good romance that is quick and easy to read. Chapman does a very good job of developing the characters and their romance despite the unusual circumstances. Alex and Sarah grow to understand themselves as they also grow to love on another. The added family dynamic and dash of mystery/suspense makes this a delicious, romantic read.

Heartwarming, great characters, some plot twists, and of course the trademark Chapman humor. Definitely worth reading. Janet Chapman never disappoints!
