Seducing Phoebe by the Nicole Flockton is an October 2013 Crimson Books release. Phoebe is friends with the main characters from Masquerade and Rescuing Dawn and this is her story.

I find Nicole Flocktons stories to be incredibly romantic and Seducing Phoebe is no different. It's a heart-warming tale of a man who doesn’t give up on love or what he believes in. In the modern day it’s what we do, we give up and walk away when it gets too hard. Marco doesn't. When Phoebe floors him with her snap dec

I have become a huge fan of author Nicole Flockton and her romantic love stories. She has written her sexiest and most drama filled book with her newest release, Seducing Phoebe. I have been dying to read Phoebe's story since she was first introduced to us readers in Masquerade as Sophie's best friend.
The author did a great job capturing my attention right from the beginning when she threw Phoebe for a loop with the return of her ex-lover, John while engaged and planning her wedding to Marco. P

What I loved the most about this story was that it was a REAL love story. A steamy, hot love story!

Standing in her wedding dress at her fitting, Pheobe realizes that maybe the marriage isn’t what she wanted. She calls off the wedding, and seeks solace to think about her priorities. Marco doesn’t give up on trying to convince Pheobe that they are meant for each other. Both of them think that they truly aren’t in love with each other but they are compatible enough to wed. Yet, the best part is th

Seducing Phoebe by Nicole Flockton was well… honestly, a different story than I was expecting. I loved it! I knew the book was Phoebe’s romance and that she goes almost “runaway bride” and calls off her wedding. But I was expecting more of a triangle thingie with her ex and her fiance. Instead I got a realistic tale about two guarded, wounded people discovering what they really want and I couldn’t put it down.

I’m just modern enough to understand the ‘marriage for security’ concept and find it loathesome. Nothing to me is more self-defeating than determining you will never be able to stand on your own and support yourself, so marriage is the next best bet. Setting yourself up for a lifetime of ‘meh’, as if you don’t deserve more and even more important is the ridiculous reliance on a relationship that is anything BUT a sure thing. So the premise and Phoebe’s initial intentions instantly rubbed me the ...more

I loved this book! :) There was angst and the return of an ex-boyfriend on the eve of the heroine's wedding to a man whose 'been there' for her all along.

Phoebe and Marco each have their own secrets and insecurities which affect their ability to truly open up to one another and most importantly, to open up to love.

Theirs is, on the surface, a marriage of convenience, but Marco has been secretly in love with Phoebe for a while. So when her selfish ex, John the doctor, just upped and left Phoebe b

One thing I know about a Nicole Flockton book: it will keep me on my toes. Seducing Phoebe was no different. Just when I thought I had the story figured out, Flockton would turn it in another, delightful, direction.

Phoebe Fitzgerald is engaged to marry a man who seems perfect. She’s not only engaged; she’s picking out wedding dresses. But when her old boyfriend shows up, Phoebe begins to have doubts about her fiancé. It isn’t that she want

This is the final book in Ms. Flockton’s linked series Masquerade; however, it can be read as a standalone.

This is my first read by Nicole Flockton and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed the emotional, hot, romantic ride she sent me on in Seducing Phoebe.

Seducing Phoebe was a real love story.
Pheobe begins to think that marriage to her fiance Marco may not be the right decisions for her. With much doubt and confusion she calls off the wedding. Marco on the other hand knows that they belong together and isn't willing to give Pheobe up without a fight. When

I rated Seducing Phoebe with FOUR LEAVES! This was a very sweet story. From reading the first few chapters, I wasn't sure how the story was going to end up and I like that. It was also a quick read. Phoebe is the main character. She is engaged to Marco. Marco and Phoebe have a good relationship but it is mainly physically based. They don't share a lot with each oth

Seducing Phoebe is a heart warming story that focuses on the perseverance of true love. The book takes us on a journey of rediscovery and soul searching that hits the heart of every relationship. In true Nicole Flockton style, we're brought into the quest of tough choices and life decisions that Phoebe must make regarding her future, as she learns about herself and her wants and needs. If you were a fan of the first two books, Masquerade and Rescuing Dawn, you will not be disappointed with ...more

Another great and satisfying romance from Nicole Flockton. This is the third in a trilogy and was as good if not better than the others. It was a little different than some typical romances as the main characters had already been engaged when the story started. But doubts arise for the heroine and the hero finds he must persevere and find a way to convince his lady that what he feels for her, and what she feels for him, is the real thing. I really enjoyed the tenderness and caring that was woven ...more

Seducing Phoebe was such a fresh breath of air to read! Phoebe was in the process of picking out a wedding dress and BOOM, an ex-boyfriend comes back into the picture. And, from here comes the drama and some major decisions need to be made.

This was my first time reading a book by Nicole Flockton and it will not be my last. From my understanding Phoebe is introduced in earlier book in this series but I didn’t find it necessary to read those to understand Seducing Phoebe. If you enjoy a true roman

Seducing Phoebe rounds out Flockton's series with a beautiful flourish. Phoebe is engaged to a wonderful man, but doubts crop up when her ex starts contacting her. Through an emotionally-charged, intensely personal story, the two find their way back to one another. In the end, their relationship is fully fleshed out, thanks to some serious soul-searching and incredibly intimate moments. It was also so much fun to see Sophie and Alex and Dawn and Andrew so we could catch up with how their lives ...more

I really enjoyed this story Phoebe is engaged to Marco and is very much looking forward to her marriage until her ex arrives back in town and has her thinking about the relationship that her and Marco have do they really know each other or are they keeping things to themselves but when she breaks the engagemnet Marco is determined to seduce Phoebe. There is a lot to overcome from their pasts and slowly they get there a very sensual and romantic story I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Love Nicole Flockton's books and Seducing Phoebe doesn't disappoint. I love that Phoebe doesn't want to settle for anything other than to be absolutely sure that the man that she has chosen is completely in love with her. Love that she is determined to get her Prince Charming. I also like that Marco goes after her and decides that their relationship needs to be more open. That they need to be truthful about their feelings towards each other.
