Title The Rakehell s Seduction Series Seduction 2Author Lauren SmithRelease date February 6, 2017Cliffhanger NoHEA view spoiler Yes hide spoiler 4.5 There s no place I wish to be but here Stars Lauren Smith steps back in time again for the second book in her Seduction series I adored The Duellist s Seduction so couldn t wait too read the next story from the series.I am not a huge Historical Romance reader, but I always get a little excited when it comes to a Lauren Smith release, because although as a reader you are taken back to a day where it was improper for a real lady to get down and dirty with a gent pre marriage, the author always delivers up a refreshing story with a feisty female lead, and a charmingly cheeky rogue ready to tame her, although the roles are generally reversed relation to whom it is that s been tamed by the end of the book You ve set the rules for our game, and I intend to winAmbrose and Alexandra s budding relationship offered up both those character traits really well Ambrose is known about town as a notorious ladies man, but when he sees the name of the daughter of one of his father s closest friends in a book of wagers, he feels bound to step up and take on the bet to save Alex from a potentially worse fate I don t know what the future holds, but let s take it one day, one kiss at a time Alex is no shy retiring violet though and when Ambrose turns up at her father s country estate with the intent to stay several weeks, she takes it upon herself to let him know that although her father has welcomed him with open arms, she most certainly hasn t, and with some quite funny results.I loved the little nod to the authors other series The League of Rogues, and the lengths Ambrose went to particularly in the books latter stages , in his efforts to win Alex s heart You came into my life like a shooting star That night we met it changed me I wasn t whole, not until I met you I look forward to reading inclusions to the series, they are always a great way to take a break from modern day stresses and strains.ARC generously provided by the author, and it was, as it always is a pleasure to provide the above honest review in exchange. Ambrose Worthing is a rake if ever there was one A confirmed bachelor, he scoffs at the mere notion of monogamy, and makes no bones about enjoying the trappings of his freedoms A cad though he is, he refuses to sit idly by when he learns of the intended ruination of a family friend for the purpose of handsome wager.If you thought he intended to inform the injured party, you d be wrong He s a cad remember He intends to win the wager by seducing the Lady, and in doing so, save her from the unsavoury characters that also wish to pursue her.The Lady in question is, Lady Alexandra Rockford She s an immediately likeable character, completely at odds with the stuffy sensibilities of society She s opinionated, free spirited, and needs not the security of a marriage to acknowledge her self worth.Although unaware of the wager, she s than aware of Ambrose s reputation Suspicion and intrigue circle with his new found interest in her It s a delicious game of cat and mouse, and one they soon have far too much fun playing Alex s tricks brought much humour, and believe it or not, Ambrose proved to be quite the charming character.The Rakehell s Seduction was a delightful, sultry read and wonderful addition to a series that s fast becoming a favourite I ve throughly enjoyed my foray into Lauren Smiths world of rakes, and I look forward to being ravaged by the next.
