A Season of Seduction by Jennifer Haymore

Author: Jennifer Haymore
Pages: 416
Genre: Historical Romance

What a lovely wrap-up to a beloved series.  Jennifer Haymore is my hero!  Seriously.  Although I had read historical romance in the past, when I read the first in this series, A Hint of Wicked, in mid-2009, I truly fell in love with the genre.  Then came A Touch of Scandal which I've read various times since I originally read it earlier this year.  And now, A Season of Seduction, well, it's like the icing on the cake.

A Season of Seduction is Becky's story.  Now if you've read the previous books, you know Becky has been in and out of trouble for most of the series.  What with her eloping with that conniving scoundrel William Fisk, only to be used and mentally abused by him in order to take his revenge on her beloved brother.  It's now been four years of her widowhood and she has finally decided to take a lover.  That's where Jack Fulton comes into play.  See Jack is handsome, charming, smart, he's a sailor and has traveled around the world.  He is perfect to play the part.  But Jack has his own agenda (ugh men!).  Lady Rebecca is beautiful, wealthy, intelligent, wealthy, spunky and wealthy.... and that's exactly what he is looking for in a woman... her wealth.  But Jack doesn't want an affair, he needs to marry Becky and he must do so by Christmas.  Jack desperately needs her fortune, but in his pursuit of her, he'll come to realize that love is the greater prize.

Becky was everything that I love in a heroine.  Although she is fragile and obviously is suffering from trust issues, she is also brave, tough (I mean, the girl will shoot you if you mess with her!), she's faithful, witty and spunky.  Jack - although I did have a hard time warming up to him at first - because you can't help but want to protect Becky from him, surprised me in how much I really ended up liking him.  Although his feelings for Becky started off in more of a sinister way, they quickly became true and I ended up falling for him just like she did.  I loved how we got to see glimpses into the lives of the couples from the previous novels and how Garrett and Tristan were always barging into a room in order to save Becky.  These barging in moments were very reminiscent of scenes from the previous novels and always brought a smile to my face.  

I also loved that Christmas played a part in the novel too.  I think this would be a lovely book to spend some time cuddled with within the next couple of months, although you can still enjoy it any time of the year.

For those of you wondering if this novel can be read as a stand alone, it definitely can be - although there are a few cameos from the couples from the previous novels.  I personally recommend that you read them in order... well, because they are phenomenal.  I am seriously considering reading all three of them back-to-back - they're that good. 

Ms. Haymore has done it again!  She not only brought characters that I was pained to finish reading about, but she created a whole series that I am 100% in love with.  I can't recommend it enough.  A must-read for romance fans.
