After hearing that this book was a very hot read I immediately began my search for it and bought it! I had no idea what it was about but on the promise of a good amount of steam I dove into it. While The Seduction delivered in the heat department, it didn’t pass as being a great book for this reader. 3 stars, here is why:

As the most notorious rakehell in Regency London, Lord Damien Sinclair sought only his own pleasure... This is one of those cases where the hero is supposedly a wicked man, taki

Bu yazıyı yıllar yılı önce yazmıştım. Bu sebeple o zaman ki çatlaklığımdan sorumlu tutulmamayı talep ediyorum. :)

Eğer kitabın konusuna dair fikir sahibi değilseniz, büyük ihtimal ne demek istediğimi anlamayacaksınız. Daha önce kitabın özetine bakmışsanız veya yorum okumuşsanız hatta mümkünse kitabı okumuşsanız bunu okumanızı tavsiye etmekteyim.

Primeira leitura: Faz tempo que enrolo para ler esse livro, e nem imagina o porquê!
Li a sinopse ontem e na hora me interessei!
Para "salvar" sua família da ruína, Vanessa aceita se passar por dama de companhia para a irmã do Lorde Sin (Lorde Pecado), bem como, ser sua amante até o final da temporada.
Claro que o livro é clichê!
Já imaginamos tudo o que acontece: Mocinha inteligente, mocinho gostoso, libertino que se vê querendo cada vez mais a companhia da mocinha.
Mas, esse livro tem um plus! Que n

5+. Warning: Extremely HOT read. I know my "passionate" friends here on Goodreads will love this book as I did. If you like authors like Lisa Kleypas, Lisa Valdez, and Stephanie Laurens you'll like Nicole Jordan as well!
Provocative plot and fast paced....you will not get bored!

London, March 1810

I honestly couldn't enjoy this book at all. Not only was it badly phrased but the storyline made me cringe.

After being an ass in the beginning of the book. The hero was never able to redeem himself in my eyes. He degraded and abused the heroine.I understood that he was upset and hurt because the heroine's brother had all but ruiend his sister. But maybe if he was not busy being an absentee guardian, this situation could have been avoided entirely.

*Spoiler Alert*

There is no other way to say it....this book is HOT, HOT, HOT! A friend recommended it to me, saying it was some of the "steamiest" yet emotional books out there....I must say after spending all day reading, I agree wholeheartedly! Only "Passion" by Lisa Valdez rivals this book in this regard.

At it's core, this is a "reformed rake" story. I am an absolute sucker for this type of hero and story line, so this was absolutely "my cup of tea".

If you like your rakes jaded and your romance hot, this book is for you. The heroine agrees to be the hero's mistress to save her family, but soon learns that being a mistress has certain…er…attractions. Unfortunately, she's fallen in love with the hero, and he isn't sure he can ever love. It takes all her will to bring him around.

uma estreia nesta autora muito positiva.
gostei da história e dos personagens com os seus demónios e temores. uma história ao mesmo tempo com uma certa crueza mas também com alguns cenas emotivas.

(Rake Hero/Widowed Lady Turned Mistress Heroine)

First impressions are so important, and as such, were very interesting to the characters within this book. Both Damien and Vanessa share a common quirk- loyalty, family loyalty. While Damien is a charming rake, his boldness is only outshone by his love for his sister, Olivia, who was paralyzed by an accident that lay on Vanessa's brother Audrey's head. No doubt Vanessa is a woman to admire, coming to aid her mother and younger two sisters in rescui

Lord Damien Sinclair (Lord Sin) is a pleasure seeking skirt chaser who indulges in all sorts of debauchery along with his Lordly Hellfire League cohorts. I got it within the first few pages…truly I did, so repeating it at every turn of a page was completely unnecessary.

Kitap ile ilgili yorumuma geçmeden önce ben de uyandırdığı duyguları dile getirmeliyim. Kitabı gerçekten beğendim.
En sevdiğiniz çikolatayı aldıktan hemen sonra inceden bir fikir sızar ya zihninize 'ben bunu sonra yerim' dersiniz ve ertelersiniz ama canınız çekiyordur ve en sonunda dayanamayarak afiyetle mideye indirirsiniz. Tam o anda 'bu bana kilo aldırır mı?' diyerek kendinizi sorugularsınız. İşte bu kitabı elime aldığım ve bitirdiğim evre tam olarak bu. Kitap bitiminde ise bu kitap bana ne ka

Não consigo dar mais porque no início tudo parece acontecer muito depressa. Principalmente pintarem um quadro tão negro em volta de Olivia e com uma única conversa a Vanessa faz o que quer dela! Mas amo sempre uma história de um libertino domado :-)

Nicole Jordan é mais uma autora de romances de época que descobri recentemente. As minhas apostas neste género têm-se revelado bastante satisfatórias e por isso, foi com algum entusiasmo que mergulhei na leitura deste A Sedução.
Confesso que para mim este género de leitura, é uma indulgência; isto porque são livros leves, que me permitem descansar a cabeça e deixar levar-me por um ambiente de romance e sensualidade. É este ambiente que permite

Após a leitura d'"Paixão" de Nicole Jordan, que fora bastante positiva, lancei-me numa pesquisa, da qual surgiu este outro título da autora: "A Sedução", tornando-se uma das minhas aquisições natalícias.
Com uma capa tão sugestiva e sensual, cedo me apercebi que seria uma das primeiras leituras de 2012.
O que eu não sabia é que iria ficar tão bem impressionada, que o devoraria em apenas algumas horas!
Em "A Sedução", Nicole Jordan apresenta-nos outro cavalheiro da devassa e mundana liga dos cavalh

I read this series a number of years ago, probably 9 or 10. I loved the series and bought all the books. I have forgotten some of the details and decided to read the series again. Ms. Jordan is a wonderful writer. She brings her characters to life and lets to see into their lives. She also makes you see the places where she sets her stories. Ms. Jordan does a fine job of bring out all kinds of emotions in the reader; anguish, anger, love and a great caring for the lives of the characters that th ...more

Homem rico quer-se vingar de um mais pobre, e consegue ficar-lhe com todos os bens de tal maneira que a família do último vai ficar na miséria assim que a dívida for cobrada. A irmã do homem pobre decide intervir, e o homem rico propõe-se a perdoar a dívida se ela se tornar na sua amante durante o próximo Verão. Ela aceita.

Quando se lê romances históricos com regularidade, chega-se a um ponto em que já pouca coisa é novidade, como foi o caso desta storyline para mim. No entanto não foi a primeir

I did not like the story line.

Damien has never loved anyone. He starts falling in love with Vanessa and decides he doesn't want to be in love. CAUTION SPOILERS: So, he acts cold and indifferent to her, and lets her believe he doesn't care anymore. Later he changes his mind and allows himself to admit he loves her. That's it. That's the main story. I can see this happening in some cases. For example, a student with financial needs must spend all his time studying and working and has no time to ge

Compreendo que muitas pessoas não darão tamanha classificação a este livro, tem algumas repetições, a linguagem não é a habitual e a história por si é muito levezinha, mas eu tenho que dar, porque apesar disto tudo, entreteve-me muito e é muito bom para desenjoar de outro tipo de livros com emoções mais fortes.

É um livro intenso que não desilude para o género que é, um livro que me fez apaixonar também eu pela personagem masculina (Lorde Damien Sinclair), pela determinação da personagem feminina

Devo dizer que fiquei extremamente satisfeita com a leitura deste, pois ando realmente numa fase de gostar bastante deste género de romances e este não foi excepção!!

Sei que este romance não nos trás nada de diferente ao que existe no mercado actualmente, temos portanto, o típico galã sedutor e rico como muito para apreender sobre o amor e a uma Lady ingénua com muito a aprender a nível da sexualidade e, e

Wonderful, wonderful book! I love Jordan's writing style. It is captivating and I loved every minute of the story. This truly was a seduction, which progressed steadily and beautifully above and beyond what the characters expected - something that is always lovely and thrilling.

Slight Spoiler:

Another point in favor is the similarity between this and Pride and Prejudice, a beloved book. Though plot line is exceedingly different, particularly in the beginning, by the end, it is reminiscent of th

Wow...I always say I prefer a little steam in my books but this may have gone too far. At times I wondered if I was reading a sex manual. Perhaps I am more of a prude than I realized but all the sex scenes became boring to me and I started skimming. I had hoped to like this new to me author because she has several books available on my Overdrive library site but I don't think I will be going out of my way to check out others any time soon.
