Stunning sensuality and breathtaking romance mark this dazzling new Legendary Lovers tale from New York Timesbestselling author Nicole Jordan, where an extraordinary beauty teaches a handsome, reclusive “beast” to love again.

The most charming Wilde cousin, Lady Skye has secretly loved the enigmatic Earl of Hawkhurst since girlhood, long before the tragedy that left him scarred both physically and emotionally. When Skye learns that the celebrated hero has returned to England from his self-imposed exile to make a cold marriage of convenience, she brazenly plants herself on his castle doorstep, determined to convince Hawk that she alone is his true mate and destiny.

An elite member of the Guardians of the Sword, Hawk has vowed never again to risk the pain of loving—but that’s before he deals with the most enchanting, annoyingly persistent seductress he’s ever encountered. One night of blazing passion leaves him impossibly torn. Will Hawk choose duty over love, or will he open his heart and let Skye’s healing light penetrate his darkness?

My Rating: 5 Roses

A very fun, super sweet romance, Secrets of Seduction was an amazing historical romance. I loved this book! It was fun, romantic, and just brilliant.

Skye was a wonderful heroine. She was so genuinely likable. She was clever, kind, and.determined, though she knew when to admit defeat. She brought a lot of humor and lightheartedness into the book, with her fondness of teasing Hawk, and it made the book fun to read. She was just lovely and I really liked her character.

Hawk was also amazing. He was haunted by the death of his wife and newborn son in a fire that he couldn't save them from. He thought himself no longer capable of loving and resigned himself to a marriage of convenience. Until a lady determined to fall in love forced her way into his life. Hawk, underneath his formidable exterior, was so sweet and adorable. He was very clever and protective of those he loved. A few times, I wanted to shake some sense into him for almost letting the love of his life get away. But, I still absolutely adored him.

The romance was lovely. Skye and Hawk were a perfect couple. They were both very clever and definitely met their match in each other. Their feelings for each other, even when a certain someone was in denial, were always clear and they were so sweet together. And, the chemistry between them was sizzling from the moment they met. They had a difficult time keeping their hands off each other and it certainly led to tons of steaminess. I thought they were wonderful together.

The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. I really liked the secondary story about Skye's uncle and his lost love. It was very sweet and added a delightful element of buried secrets. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely. Can't wait to read the next book in the series!

Secrets of Seduction was a fantastic historical romance. I absolutely loved this book! It was fun, romantic, and a truly enjoyable read. Romance lovers, this is a book not to be missed.
