SEDUCTION by Amanda Quick is one of the first books I read by this author. It took me a while to discover she wrote under other names--Jayne Ann Krentz, Jayne Castle, Stephanie James, Jayne Bentley, and Amanda Glass. I started searching for her books and discovered the world of series romances. Until then, I'd mostly read regular fiction and historical novels. Once I fell in love with romance novels there was no turning back. I've read thousands of books and now I write them.
So thank you Jayne Ann Krentz!
I love historical romance and Amanda Quick (and any other book this author writes) are automatic buys for me.
Townsfolk called him devil. For dark and enigmatic Julian, Earl of Ravenwood, was a man with a legendary temper and a first wife whose mysterious death would not be forgotten. Some said the beautiful Lady Ravenwood had drowned herself in the black, murky waters of Ravenwood Pond. Others whispered of foul play and the devil’s wrath.
Now country-bred Sophy Dorring is about to become Ravenwood’s new bride. Drawn to his masculine strength and the glitter of desire that burned in his emerald eyes, the tawny-haired lass had her own reasons for agreeing to a marriage of convenience. One was vengeance, and in its pursuit she would entangle Julian in a blackmail plot, a duel at dawn, and a dangerous masquerade. The other reason was dearer to her heart, but just as wild a quest: Sophy Dorring intended to teach the devil to love again.
