Seduction

Seduction review ¶ 3 D Others whispered of foul play and the devil’s wrathNow country bred Sophy Dorring is about to become Ravenwood’s new bride Drawn to his masculine strength and the glitter of desire that burned in his emerald eyes the tawny haired lass had her own reasons for agreeing. I didn t really like this book The hero Julian was a hypocritical bully who continually broke his solemn word of honor without a second thoughtThe premise of the story is that Julian is a rich Earl with a dead first wife and no heirs His first wife was a slut who cheated on him with practically every man she met and even aborted Julian s baby so that she could continue to have her fun Now that she s gone Julian has a strong desire to avoid scandal and wants his next wife to just sit uietly and dispense babies without ever putting a foot wrongSophy is a spinster with a small inheritance that provides her with some measure of freedom She s intelligent and an independent thinker and she worries that if she accepts Julian s proposal she ll lose her freedom and by extension herself Before agreeing to marry Julian she asks him to promise her 4 things 1 That she be allowed to choose her own reading material 2 That she be allowed to continue to use her inheritance as she sees fit 3 That he take her with him whenever he goes to London and 4 That they not consummate their marriage for 3 months so that they have time to get to know one anotherJulian agrees to these conditions and is even offended by the last one He feels that by asking for his word of honor that he not forcibly claim her in the marriage bed she s implying he d rape her and that s akin to her besmirching his honor Unfortunately Julian is a big fat liar with no honor at all despite what he claims Even as he gives his word on these 4 conditions he s privately planning to break every single one and he does The only part of this agreement he doesn t break is the second one that she be allowed to keep her inheritance and that one only stands because he s about a million times richer than Sophy anyway so he doesn t need her moneyBut all the other parts of the agreement get broken within the first week of their marriage and Julian never EVER admits that he s breaking his word He continually justifies it to himself by saying that it s his right as her husband to do whatever he wants or that it s for Sophy s own good that he lay down the law because she s too headstrong etc Never once does he admit that he s completely dishonorable The worst example of this is when he finally decides to force Sophy to sleep with him and he s got no ualms about it whatsoever because he s confident that he ll be able to force her to feel pleasure and therefore it won t be rapeOverall it was a sad and downright scary story about how completely powerless women were in this time period Once Sophy is married to Julian she really has no rights at all She d been counting on Julian s sense of honor to help keep the marriage of a partnership but unfortunately Julian has no honor so Sophy is screwed I liked Sophy as a character and thought the way she handled the blackmailing courtesan was fantastic but I didn t understand why she supposedly loved Julian when he treated her with no respect at all Likewise I had trouble believing that Julian loved Sophy when he clearly didn t respect her or value any of the traits that made her who she was

Seduction review ¶ 3 Townsfolk called him Devil For dark and enigmatic Julian Earl of Ravenwood was a man with a legendary temper and a first wife whose mysterious death would not be forgotten Some said the beautiful Lady Ravenwood had drowned herself in the black murky waters of Ravenwood Pon. The hero in this one was an overbearing ass for almost the entire book and there were a few too many casual references to wife beating that drove me nuts And yet Why the 5 star rating Because uick s writing is so darn charming It s frothy and fun and I absolutely adore the world she creates There were fun secondary characters a lot of interesting mysteries and plot threads hilarious banter and some excellent logic that Sophy uses to her advantage to fight for the fair marriage she wants I loved Sophy She was uirky constantly lost things and looked for honor in all people She was refreshingly different without being unbelievable or too headstrong She was simply lovely Julian I didn t care for as much His arrogance and constant hateful thoughts of his first wife were tiresome However I kept at it because I always loved to see what Sophy would do next She chipped away at the high handedness and I loved seeing how little by little she makes him reconsider his thinking until he started to recognize how Sophy had changed his life for the better That s not to say she changed him Rather she helped open up his worldview and accept Sophy as she was I loved this Too many books have this weird obsession with changing people to be the perfect partner I liked how the characters were the same but they came to understand and respect each other in order to build their marriage It kept me reading and reading uicklyThis was an oldie but a a goodie as long as the hero s attitude doesn t entirely turn you off in the first 30% I stayed in it and ended up loving the ride

Seduction review ¶ 3 To a marriage of convenience One was vengeance and in its pursuit she would entangle Julian in a blackmail plot a duel at dawn and a dangerous masuerade The other reason was dearer to her heart but just as wild a uest Sophy Dorring intended to teach the devil to love agai. Seduction would have been a solid 5 star read if Julian hadn t started out as a selfish manipulative bastard who used Sophy s affections for his own purposes Granted that was for her safety but manipulation for whatever ends does not sit well with me I also didn t appreciate the fact that he all but demanded Sophy to continue loving him without offering his love in return Ugh the injustice of it allBut meh I have to admit that the ending did pacify whatever hatred I had for him In my opinion he wasn t able to fully redeem himself but in retrospect he did manage to understand where he went wrong and I believe he did try his best to make amends The writing was better than most of the writer s work and Sophy was incredible I just wished Julian wasn t such an ass in the beginning
