Seduction by Amanda Quick

Seduction by Amanda Quick is another lovely regency book I read by this author. Like all her books, in this one there are a few interesting twists, and the most impressive one is the duel. It’s not what one can expect from a duel, besides the well known scenario of pistols at dawn in a foggy park in the outskirts of London… the protagonists of the duel are what it makes it so unusual.

Seduction by Amanda Quick

The hero is Julian, Earl of Ravenwood, a widower with a dark past, including some speculation that he killed his first wife, which cheated him repeatedly. The heroine is Sophy Dorring, a country-bred woman in her 20s. She has a secret too, wanting to marry so she could avenge her sister’s suicide. There are twists and turns, some dangerous situations, which add to the intrigue. I enjoyed the book and I would surely recommend it for the summer holiday.

I think the story could have been even better if she was less quirky, but, considering that this is a 30 year old book, I’m not too bothered by this. For me the book was lovely and worth the 5 stars I gave it.
