Summoned For Seduction
by Joanne Rock
(My review copy was purchased from the Harlequin Website)
In romance author Joanne Rock’s release for Harlequin Historicals Undone, Summoned for Seduction she presents Helene MacKail whose Twelfth Night fun at Domhnaill Keep is ruined by the fact that her father wishes her to marry a particularly fiendish highland lord, Léod mac Ruadhán, about whom vicious rumors swirl. It is said Léod caused his first wife’s death, after all. She does what any sane woman would do: She lies to Léod and hides out in her bedroom during the festivities. Some kind courtier takes it upon himself to offer her the dinner she missed, in Lady Cristiana’s brewhouse, and hungry, she can’t help but accept anonymous invitation. How could she expect what intrigue, seduction, and ultimately fate, awaits her?
What happens? Well, you’ll have to read to find out. As prequel to Joanne Rock’s January 2011 Harlequin Historical novel, In The Laird’s Bed, this short, 47 page Historical Undone novella brings the intrigue and some could say threat, as well as passion of an arranged Medieval betrothal to life. Though, in my opinion it may be a little too early to start thinking about Christmas, this book will definitely get you in the mood, I think. I enjoyed it, anyway. 🙂 If you’d like to try it out, Summoned for Seduction is available for kindle and other e-readers from the Harlequin website, or via barnesandnoble.com.
