Amazing! The first half of the book is the seduction of the title, but the hero/seducer and the lady being seduced, unbeknownst to them, are actually just pawns in a horrible game of revenge controlled by the lady's enemy, her former fiance. The seduction itself is pure poetry. The second half of the book is a new game between the hero and the heroine's enemy, with their lives and honor as the ultimate stakes. Brilliant use of the chess metaphor in both parts of the story. Even more brilliant depiction of the Georgian setting - the clothes, the speech, the political and social realities of the time. And the 3 cats - just irresistible!

Julia Ross, the author of this wonderful book, should be much better known.
