Stephen is visiting his college friend's parents when he wakes up in the middle of the night to find a sexy dark haired man crawling in bed with him. Stephen thinks it's a fantasy come true. The man -Lord Northrup- thinks Stephen is his hired entertainment for the night. Soon they find out there was a mix up, but as the Lord starts to leave, Stephen convinces him to go through with his anticipated night of entertainment. And so the night turns in to a weekend of stolen passion and soon Stephen's heart gets involved. And that's something Lord Northrup tries to avoid at all costs. Because passion and commitment can’t coexist for men like them. Or can it?

Stephen and Peter (Lord Northrup) are seemingly polar opposites. Peter is a high born, lazy and jaded man who long since has accepted his sexuality. Stephen comes from a humble home, is burdened with responsibilities, passionate about engineering and bridge building, wears his heart on his sleeve and can’t seem to stop to think that he’s sinful for liking men.
As the two men grow closer (although they seem to need to be apart to do that) we see them take on certain traits from one another. Stephen becomes less innocent and Peter opens up.

Seducing Stephen was a really nice, endearing read. It had all the right ingredients for a historical (gay) romance. Though I must say that I didn’t think it was as good as The Gentleman and the Rogue by the same authors, which had a bit more bite and humor.
Still: a very good read: 3,5 stars.
