His Seduction by Diana Cosby + Featured Freebie

His Seduction (MacGruders, #5)
An Impulsive Act…
Lady Rois Drummond is fiercely devoted to her widowed father, the respected Scottish Earl of Brom. So when she believes he is about to be exposed as a traitor to England, she must think quickly. Desperate, Rois makes a shocking claim against the suspected accuser, Sir Griffin Westcott. But her impetuous lie leaves her in an outrageous circumstance: hastily married to the enemy! Yet Griffin is far from the man Rois thinks he is—and much closer to the man of her dreams…

An Irresistible Outcome…
Griffin may be an Englishman, but in truth he leads a clandestine life as a spy for Scotland. Refusing to endanger any woman, he has endured the loneliness of his mission. But Rois’s absurd charge has suddenly changed all that. Now, with his cover in jeopardy, Griffin must find a way to keep his secret while keeping his distance from his spirited and tempting new wife—a task that proves more difficult than he ever imagined…

My Rating: 4 Roses

A lovely romance with two people caught in the middle of a battle between countries. His Seduction was a wonderful highland romance. Great read!

Rois was a strong heroine, though her tendency to impulsiveness tended to get her into a lot of trouble. I liked her and the fact that she didn't back down from anything. But, her aforementioned impulsiveness made me want to shake her. She would get into her head to do something, completely disregarding that is was a stupidly dangerous thing to do. Then, when trouble inevitably came, someone (read: Griffin) would have to get her out. But, I didn't mind too much because she did eventually learn from her mistakes and admitted to them. So, I ended up liking her character.

Griffin was also a great character. He was a perfect hero. Clever, determined, sweet, and always conscious of what was right. I really liked him.

The romance was well done. I appreciated that it developed realistically, beginning with Rois trusting Griffin despite her perception of him as an enemy. They definitely had some sparks flying and they were hot. I thought they were a lovely couple.

The plot moved quickly. I was hooked the entire way through. There was a surprise betrayal at the end that I never saw coming. And the ending was perfect.

His Seduction was a lovely read. If you're looking for a wonderful highland romance, this is your book.
