Well this was another one with an eighties feel to it. I suppose if it was written in the eighties, that just might be the case.


Arrogant, boorish alpha male.


Younger, innocent woman who cannot see how pretty she is.


Throw in his daughter to the mix.


To me, even the "bad" SB books are not that bad.

An enjoyable enough read.

I really enjoyed Seduction by Design, it had a forceful hero Tyler who took one look at Hailey and knew he wanted her and told her he would seduce her. Overbearing you may think but the execution was good.

Hailey doesn't know her own beauty and worth, years under the shadow of a beautiful sister, the awkward teenage phase and then taking care of her parents have convinced her that she is no beauty and she has the perfect personal persona that people don't get through. She comes across Tyler when

This was originally written in the early 80's and published by Harlequin. Nice enough romance story and as usual well written but not what I would expect from SB, it's not easily recognised as her work.

An old classic Sandra Brown from her category writing days.
Sorry to say this one was just too dated to make the cut.

Although I remember enjoying it when I read it many years ago, revisiting it in audio was a mistake.

The narrator kept me thinking of perms, shoulder pads and leg warmers with a nice dose of women's lib thrown in. It's a decent story, but the feel of the eighties was just overpowering.

Also not one of my favorite narrators.

In Sandra Brown's Seduction by Design, she told a beautiful and classic romantic suspense in this sweet story. For Hailey Ashton, she was devoted to her challenging job at the Serendipity Amusement Park. Her fragile self-image hides behind her tough interior that dashed any chance of her love life. Until a minor emergency happened at the park, that's when she made contact with Tyler Scott.

Wow this book was really dated but then again I enjoyed it for a quick read. The theme of wanting to be loved instead of being pushed aside for someone else is timeless. I reconmend this book for a quick read to pass the time.

3.5 stars.

Hailey is a responsible, sensible doormat. She's extremely good at her job, capable, and intelligent. She meets Tyler Scott, the owner of the amusement park she works for, and his daughter, Faith, and Tyler makes it pretty clear from the start that he intends for he and Hailey to have a relationship. Unfortunately, Hailey has a lifetime of insecurities, courtesy of her now-dead parents and her user little sister, so she keeps making mental jumps to convince herself that Tyler doesn't r

I'm excited! Thank you, Ms. Sandra Brown and Goodreads Giveaways for the gracious gift of an autographed copy of Seduction by Design. I can hardly wait to receive, read and review!

This book was an enjoyable 'take me away' kind of experience.

At the beginning I felt that our male protagonist was boorish and forward and I wasn't going to like him..........but..........there can be no fault found with a man who loves a woman and teaches 'said' woman to love him, but to also love herself. And he's

I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway win. Though, technically, I won another book, but this audiobook came along with it. I'll never turn away a free book!

This was a sweet love story between Hailey and Tyler. A typical, he wants her but she's shy and unsure of herself story with him having a daughter thrown in.

I definitely enjoyed this book. It was sweet and fluffy. Those are always enjoyable.

Not much else to say with regards to this except that if you want something light and roman

This book was a nice surprise....Loved It!!! A beautifully written short read that has everything going for it....A strong, handsome leading man in Tyler and a beautiful, smart woman who is not full of herself in Hailey...and Faith, Tyler's preteen daughter who draws them together and flourishes along with their love for each other.

A lovely love story!!!!

I never get bored with Sandra's books. This was the first classic love story I have read of hers and I couldn't put it down. I thought this was well written and very interesting. I am gonna have to read some of the other titles now just to see if they are as good.

This book took me forever to actually finish. The beginning of this story had me completely captivated, mainly because of the location that it is set in. However, the middle of this book is completely awful. The ending picked back up and was actually decent. Just not one of her better books in my opinion.
Also, Hailey is a prude and I hated her character. Ellen was a spoiled brat and I hated her even worse. Tyler was a conceited, obsessive, on some point even abusive and I couldn't stand his cha

This thing reeked of the 80's. It was published in 1983 and then republished in 2001. I like this book wasn't terrible, but nor was it super good. I somewhat enjoyed it. However, I hated some of the sayings she included. "Kit and caboodle, rude boor, bungling,electronic games (code word for arcade)" etc. That wasn't 80's, that was more like 50's. Hailey was alright, though at points her insecurity would get annoying. She kept going on about how ugly she was, while the author would go on about ho ...more

Sandra Brown is one of those super prolific authors. If I'm counting correctly, she's written seventy-two books. To complicate things further, she has been published under a variety of names: Rachel Ryan, Laura Jordan, Erin St. Claire and finally Sandra Brown. She's obviously most well known as Sandra Brown and many of her early novels have been republished under the name Sandra Brown. For example, the 2001 edition of Seduction by Design was originally published in 1983 and listed Erin St. Clair ...more

Seduction by Design is the story of Hailey Ashton, the HR director of a popular amusement park, who meets and falls for her previously absentee boss - Tyler Scott - and his teenage daughter.

The cover of this novel declares it "a classic love story", and I suppose by definition it could be considered that. Boy meets girl, falls for her, sweeps her off her feet, complications ensue, but all rights itself in the end.

That being said, you should have the fair warning this book was published in 1983

I flat out hated this. I listened (I had the audiobook) to the end because I feel like I can't leave a fair review if I don't read the whole thing.
This is practically a textbook of pick-up artist bullshit. This guy is an ass, except when he's suddenly Dr. Phil (that is not a good thing, either!). The girl (because she acts ENTIRELY like a teenage girl regardless of her supposed adulthood) is rude to people for no reason, has NO self esteem, and is basically a complete twit. The relationship is
