Enter the thrilling, sexy world of Georgian England in this splendid Miranda Neville novella—and catch a glimpse of Caro, the heroine of the upcoming The Importance of Being Wicked, on sale December 2012.
Eleanor Hardwick and Max Quinton shared one night of incredible passion . . . that was shattered the next day, when Eleanor learned of a bet placed by Max's friends. Now, five years later, Max still can't get Eleanor out of his head or his heart. He has a single chance to make a second impression—one that will last forever.
I have a feeling The Second Seduction of a Lady was conceived as a set-up for The Importance of Being Wicked, and this short story achieves that task admirably. So much so, that I found myself becoming irritated at the older Caro who is so unlike the Caro portrayed here. What I immensely enjoyed was the brimming sexual tension between Eleanor and Max and watching the two former lovers fall in love again.
(A very special thank you to Harper Collins, Avon Books and Edelweiss for providing me with an ARC of The Second Seduction of a Lady.)
