A LESSON IN SEDUCTION . . .
Miranda Hodgkins has only ever wanted one thing: to marry Robert Carlisle. And she simply can't wait a moment longer. During the Carlisle family masquerade ball, Miranda boldly sneaks into his bedchamber with seduction on her mind. Soon she's swept into rock-hard arms for the most breathtaking kiss of her life. But when the masks come off, she's horrified to find herself face-to-face with Sebastian, the Duke of Trent-Robert's formidable older brother.
Shocked to find Miranda in his bed, Sebastian quickly offers her a deal to avoid scandal: He'll help her win his brother's heart if she'll find him the perfect wife. But what begins as a simple negotiation soon spirals out of control. For the longer this reformed rake tries to make a match for Miranda, the more he wants to keep her all to himself.
What’s it About? A case of mistaken identity lands Miranda Hodgkins in the wrong Carlisle’s bedroom on the night of a masquerade party. All she’s ever wanted was for Robert Carlisle to see her as a woman and not the little girl who used to run wild with him and his brothers. Instead she’s mortified to find out that the man she’s “seducing” is Sebastian Carlisle, the Duke of Trent and Robert’s older brother. Sebastian on the other hand is shocked but quickly makes a deal with Miranda, he will help her win Robert if she helps him find the perfect wife. Of course, the more Sebastian tries to help Miranda, the more he wants to keep her for himself.
Describe the hero in five words: Serious. Passionate. Kind. Selfless. Devoted.
Did you like him? I fell in love with him.
Why? Sebastian was stead fast in his love for his family and loyal to them to the point where he was ready to choose duty over love. Sebastian never minded Miranda being included in his family’s plans nor did he have any problem with her marrying one of his brothers. His objection came from his wanting her, the dukedom, and what he thought were his father’s wishes for him. I couldn’t fault Sebastian’s determination to do what he thought was best for his family at the cost of his happiness. I loved this guy even when he was being a knucklehead.
Did you like her? Yes.
Why? It was her spirit that first got me. Miranda is a spirited character. She was so full of life and had this huge desire to help those who needed help but at the same time she didn’t take anyone’s crap. She didn’t do pity parties and she didn’t do manipulation. I loved how open she was and how she was brave enough to put herself out there so that hopefully she could show the man she wanted who she really was as a person. When she found herself falling for Sebastian she didn’t try and trick or manipulate him, she just showed him who she was. It was her personality that did the rest. I couldn’t help but be “Team Miranda” throughout the whole book. Yes, she had her silly moments but I never felt like she was a character that was trying too hard to be likable. She simply was likable.
