Beyond Seduction, Paperback
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


In a moment of recklessness Gervase Tregarth, sixth Earl of Crowhurst, swears he'll marry the next eligible lady to cross his path.

However, after years engaged in secret service to the Crown, he knows the importance of an escape route - the lady must be compatible in every way, or there will be no wedding.

Cloistered at his ancestral castle in Cornwall, with no suitable woman for miles, Gervase never expects he'll have to fulfil his pledge.

That is, until he meets his neighbour, the deliciously appealing Madeline Gascoigne. Despite his reservations, Gervase finds himself irrepressibly drawn to Madeline, luring her into his arms and, ultimately his bed.

From their very first kiss, he discovers that the headstrong and independent Madeline is no meek country miss, they are definitely compatible - and that the fire between them will burn well beyond that first seduction...

Review by

Gervase Tregarth, Earl of Crowhurst, is dragged back from London by his misbehaving sisters. He never wanted to be their keeper but he has to and in order to get them to behave he has to promise to stay in the area for three months and try to find a local wife, a wife that won't send them away like happened to one of their neighbours.While he's there he rediscovers the company of Madeline Gascoigne, a woman who rides side-saddle in trousers while being regent to her brother with the family estate, but her brother is growing up and she is looking at a life of spinsterhood. She knows shes too old for most marriages and her independent ways turn most men off, along with basically making her a social pariah outside their small circle.It was riddled with historical inaccuracies, smugglers, kidnappings and wild chases across country, entertaining but left me wanting more.
