BOOK REVIEW- THE SEDUCTION OF LORD STONE BY Anna Campbell
Caroline, Lady Beaumont, arrives in London seeking excitement after ten dreary years of marriage and an even drearier year of mourning. That means conquering society, dancing like there’s no tomorrow, and taking a lover to provide passion without promises. Promises, in this dashing widow’s dictionary, equal prison. So what is an adventurous lady to do when she loses her heart to a notorious rake who, for the first time in his life, wants forever?
Devilish Silas Nash, Viscount Stone is in love at last with a beautiful, headstrong widow bent on playing the field. Worse, she’s enlisted his help to set her up with his disreputable best friend. No red-blooded man takes such a challenge lying down, and Silas schemes to seduce his darling into his arms, warm, willing and besotted. But will his passionate plots come undone against a woman determined to act the mistress, but never the wife? AMAZON 3 STARS
Good main characters. I could understand Caroline wanting to let loose. She wanted to fill up with everything she missed during her miserable 10 year marriage. It was so restrictive and even her childhood was so severely controlled by her father. The Dashing Widows was a fun way for them to describe themselves. The friendship between the 3 was nice.
Silas was a good match for Caroline even though she was terrified of losing her freedom again.
I felt sorry for Silas more than once because of her looking for a lover and never considering how good they were together. He has been quietly wooing her for a year and she hadn't got that at all.
The 2 Chapter look into the other book , "Tempting Mr. Townsend" sounded interesting as well. It's Fenella and Anthony Townsend's story.
