Review 'His Wicked Seduction' by Lauren Smith


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23253662-his-wicked-seductionCan the Leaque's most wicked rakehell be tamed? Or has this Rogue fallen too far?

Horatia Sheridan has been hopelessly in love with Lucien, her brother’s best friend, ever since he rescued her from the broken remains of her parents’ wrecked carriage. His reputation as London’s most notorious rakehell doesn’t frighten her, for under his veneer of cool authority she has glimpsed a man whose wicked desires inspire her own.

Lucien, Marquess of Rochester, has deliberately nurtured a reputation for debauchery that makes every matchmaking mother of the ton quake with fear. His one secret: he is torn between soul-ripping lust for Horatia, and the loyalty he owes her brother.

That loyalty is put to the test when an old enemy of the League threatens Horatia’s life. With Christmas drawing near, he sweeps her away to his country estate, where he can’t resist granting her one wish—to share his bed and his heart.

But sinister forces are lurking, awaiting the perfect moment to exact their revenge by destroying not only whatever happiness Lucien might find in Horatia’s arms, but the lives of those they love.

Warning: This book contains an intelligent lady who is determined to seduce her brother’s friend, a brooding rake whose toy of choice in bed is a little bit of bondage with a piece of red silk, a loyal band of merry rogues and a Christmas love so scorching you’ll need fresh snow to extinguish it.

My Review:

 

A view months ago I read the first book in ‘The League of Rogues’ series ‘Wicked Designs’. I seriously loved that book and I read it really fast. I loved the historical romance genre and I loved all the ‘Leaque of Rogues’ men. Since reading that book I joined Lauren’s Street Team on Facebook and I also read her book ‘The Shadows of Stormclyffe hall’, which was also great by the way. So when Lauren was asking for people who wanted to read the ARC of her second book in ‘The League of Rogues’ series ‘His Wicked Seduction’ I couldn’t resist.

In ‘His Wicked Seduction’ we meet Horatia Sheridan, a twenty year old girl who has been in love with her brothers friend ever since he save her life many years ago. Horatia knows her love will never be returned but still she can’t put Lucien out of her mind.
Lucien is one of ‘The League of Rogues’ and he has lived a life of sin. Lucien thirty three years old and had been with many woman but lately he can’t keep his eyes of his friend sister Horatia. Lucien tries everything to stay away from the girl because of the rules ‘The League of Rogues’ has agreed upon years ago. But Horatia isn’t making it easy for Lucien and soon he just can’t stay away anymore.

What can I say about ‘His Wicked Seduction’? Well, the title fits the story completely! This second book in ‘The League of Rogues’ series is just as great and seducing as the first book. From the moment I started reading about Horatia and Lucien I completely fell in love with their story. There was just so much passion and chemistry coming out of these pages that I didn’t know how to stop reading. I seriously couldn’t put this book down.

What I loved most about this book was definitely Lucien. His love for Horatia was anything but easy and I could almost feel his struggles in denying his feelings for her. I loved how Horatia and Lucien already had this long history of knowing each other and how they always had been a part of each other’s life.

The writing in this book was yet again very addicting, seducing but also really funny at times. Lauren Smith is a great author and I’m thrilled to be a part of her street team and to have the opportunity to read her books. I love her writing and this book is yet again going on my favorite books list. ‘The League of Rogues’ series is just so fun to read and I can’t wait for the next book.

Over the years, Lauren’s studies have opened doors throughout the world. From spending two summers at Cambridge to attending classes at such divergent places as Ireland and Chengdu, China, she has discovered fascinating opportunities for enrichment wherever she goes. After completing college, Lauren moved to Michigan to attend law school at the University of Detroit-Mercy and University of Windsor in Ontario, Canada.

Her first self-illustrated manuscript described the mysterious disappearance of rare brown bats that were being captured by scientists bent on using them as carriers for an incurable disease. The immense sense of joy in sharing that story with others, and discussing plots and characters, made it clear to Lauren that writing was her true passio
