REVIEW by Jen: His Wicked Seduction by Lauren Smith

Fans of Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton Series and Johanna Lindsey’s Malory Series will love the passionate romances and gripping adventures of the League of Rogues.

Can the League’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.

Jen’s Review

This book, the second standalone historical romance in the series, centers around the characters of Horatia and Lucien. Horatia is the sister of Cedric, one of the members of the League of Rogues. The League is a group of rakes, or bad Victorian era boys, who have hearts of gold buried deep within and a bond that can’t be broken or bent. HIS WICKED SEDUCTION is about how Horatia has fallen in love with Lucien, Cedric’s very close friend, and how it seems he never gives her the time of day. It’s also Lucien’s side of the story, how he’d fallen for Horatia and how his stubbornness almost cost him the love of his life.

In addition to a series of small problems in their path, there is one larger, shadowy problem in the midst of everything: Hugo Waverly, a rival of the League. He blames the League for a tragic accident that happened years in the past when they attended university together, even though they almost lost one of their own that same night. Will Lucien be able to have his own happily-ever-after with his soulmate, or will the League’s code of honor and sinister forces keep him from having it?

All in all, HIS WICKED SEDUCTION was a fabulous read. It was just as good as the first installment in the series but read as a standalone. HIS WICKED SEDUCTION has a solid, entertaining plot. It’s a classic romance with a dash of adventure, and of course it has heart and a lot of sweet, heartfelt moments you can get lost in.
