Lydia Veratia made one mistake—and now her freedom is forfeit to the man all Rome knows as the Sea Wolf. Sold into marriage, the one thing over which she still has control is her own desire.

So when Fabius Aro offers her a wager—if she doesn't plead for his kisses in the next seven days, then she will have her independence—Lydia thinks it will be easily won.

But Aro is a dan

I feel like I have to warn readers about this book: it's incredibly anticlimatic. I was expecting lots of anticipation and suspense and tension, but I didn't get a lot of it. The description and previews looked very promising, but I don't think it delivered.
Normally, I love this author. She does thorough research in regards to the historical aspects of her books, which makes the whole thing seem more real. She does this in this book as well, but somehow it seemed more forced, and less natural t

I'm finding myself at a loss as to what to write for a review. There are so many good things I could focus on. I could write an entire review on how much Lydia and Aro's relationship has hidden depths that are a complete pleasure to the senses to discover. Their journey towards HEA captured my heart. I could write an entire review on how comfortable I was reading it even though it was in a time setting I'm not that familiar with. She made it all very real, very true to the time yet still I felt ...more
It was a nice book, but it wasn't really fulfilling. Not saying these kind of books should be but I thought it would be more.

The story.

A young woman whom is running the household, Lydia, trying to keep her family from crumbling apart. Shes caught in a tough situation and chooses the morally right path. Unfortunately, every action has a reaction. This action has lead her to be married off to one of the most notoriously known intimidating men, the "Sea Wolf." And on top of that he isn't even an up
Lectura rápida y fácil, lo termine en un par de horas.
Ambienta muy bien el final de la República romana (o eso me pareció al no ser experta). Quizás las costumbres y relaciones no eran tan así, pero es más fácil identificarse con los personajes.
Moraleja: la falta de comunicación siempre es la madre de todos los problemas.

Such a wonderful, tasteful and historically accurate book! Now searching as to which book I will read from the great Michelle Styles!

Set in Ancient Rome this wonderful novel tells the story of Lydia a fiery and determined woman bent on maintaining her independence even though she has been sold into marriage to Aro otherwise known as The Sea Wolf.
Handsome and fierce Aro is determined to keep Lydia as his wife and so enters a bargain with her. If in seven days she doesn't beg for his kisses three times he'll release her.
With their bargain in place and a sabatour on the loose can they find happiness with each other before its t
This wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. Lydia never really won me over and although I liked her spirit I didn't find her a good heroine. Too willing to listen to others not Aro, too much pride and too afraid for her own good, even though she acted courageous and strong. Aro was wonderful, and that's why I bothered to finish the book. The time period was beautifully portrayed, the historical detail enthralling, pity about the heroine, really.
I love how Michelle Style writes and I always enjoy her stories. Sold and Seduced was a great read and I always take my time when reading History Romances. I like the way the characters find their way to love and never tell each other till the end and the love that is show by the men is wonderful and great to see how the look after their women.
