Book Description

Dec 16 1999 Harper Historical Romance

The infamous pirate Black Jack Rhys never encountered a ship he could not board or a woman he could not bed. But the dashing brigand may have met his match in the fiery beauty who has vowed to bring him to justice ...

A fearless, flame-haired enchantress, Lorelei Dupree believes she has a duty to her fiancé and to the city of Charleston to help end the reign of the notorious Black Jack. But when the bold pirate eludes her carefully set trap, she suddenly finds herself the prisoner of the irresistible criminal they call "Master of Seduction." Once trapped in Jack's intoxicating gaze, Lorelei feels herself falling under the handsome rogue's sensuous spell. And now the terror of the high seas faces the one peril he never anticipated -- for though he has stolen so many hearts, he never dreamed he'd meet a woman who could so effortlessly conquer his own.

Product Description


"Kinley MacGregor is a spirited new voice in adventure romance. Keep your eye on her." -- Romantic Times

"MacGregor delivers adventure and passion with a heaping dose of humor. Master of Seduction is a masterful tale of romance that will grab you from word one." -- The Book Page

"Move over Julie Garwood and Dara Joy, there's a stunning new talent in town and her name is Kinley MacGregor!" -- Romance Readers & Writers Forum

"Ms. MacGregor has a gift for storytelling." -- Affaire de Coeur

"Warm, witty and wonderful, Kinley MacGregor weaves a magical minstrel's tale." -- Stephanie Laurens, national bestselling author of A Secret Love

Black Jack Rhys never met a ship he couldn't board, a sea he couldn't conquer, nor a woman he couldn't bend to his will. But Lorelei Dupree may well be the death of him. For the cruel pirate, who laughs at danger, is nonplused by the fiery redhead who has vowed to bring him to justice. When fate locks them together in its unyielding grip, both Jack and Lorelei are determined to win. But neither have met their match until the day they square off against each other. Lorelei cannot resist the pewter eyes of the master of seduction, and Jack is fast finding himself the one being seduced.

Kinley MacGregor burst onto the scene with A Pirate of Her Own, lending a brilliant new voice to historical romance. Now, with Master of Seduction, Ms. MacGregor may just command a place at the top of the genre. Written in the swashbuckling, adventurous style which has quickly become her trademark, Jack and Lorelei's lusty, entrancing love story is one for the ages. Ms. MacGregor has created an incomparable hero, and a heroine worthy of the name. This one is a keeper. -- Affaire de Coeur

Kinley MacGregor provides an entertaining tale of conflict and desire, liberally laced with humor and human foibles.

A Pirate of Her Own is a delightful spring offering that will have you tensing at intrigue one moment and chuckling at the characters' confusion the next. I look forward to more offerings from this talented writer. -- Book Nook 5/7/99

Kinley MacGregor's fresh new voice brings humor, adventure and a delightful romance to make MASTER OF SEDUCTION a must read!

When Lorelei Dupree agrees to help her fianc set a trap to capture a pirate she doesn't realize that she will also endanger her life and her heart. Black Jack Rhys is a master of deception as well as seduction. The man is mad, bad and dangerous in and out of bed, and you'd love to be in his arms for a night (this is fantasy time so relax and enjoy it!).

...The repartee between Jack and Lorelei is spirited and witty and keeps this book humming.

The marvelous secondary characters that add so much to this swashbuckling tale will intrigue you. I know there have to be some great stories coming up from the pen of this gifted storyteller. I'd love to see a book for Kit, what a hero he'd make! -- Suzanne Coleburn--Belles and Beaux

Ring in the New Year with a book not to be missed! Once again, Kinley MacGregor has gifted her readers with a book to treasure for a liftetime. -- Romance Readers & Writers Forum

Sail into one of the best pirate stories ever. Lusty, poignant, uproarious and heart-breaking, A Pirate of Her Own is a delight. Absolutely impossible to put down. A guaranteed winner. MacGregor takes the classic pirate plot and spins such a yarn of hilarious yet heart-rending tangles, one is torn as to which emotion to follow first. Suspense permeates the action while Serenity slowly peals away layer after layer of the Sea Wolfs mysterious life. Tensions soars as these two do battle each other, other pirates, the British Navy and the elements. Breathtaking, sensuous love scenes add a piquant touch that meshes superbly with the rest of the action. I hated for this tale to end. Kinley MacGregor is a born storyteller. Bright, vivid pictures flow from her prose weaving a mystical spell that captures the reader in the first sentence. Congratulations on a most auspicious debut. -- RomCom.Com by Barbara Corrington

About the Author

A Web designer by trade, Kinley MacGregor is the highly praised author of A Pirate of Her Own and Master of Seduction, which received a K.I.S.S. Award and was chosen as a Doubleday Book Club Award and was chosen as a Doubleday Book Club alternate selection. She lives outside of Nashville, Tennessee, with her husband, three sons, and assorted pets.

Raised in the middle of eight boys, and currently outnumbered by the Y chromosome in her home, Kinley realizes the most valuable asset a woman has for coping with men is the ability to appreciate them for what they are -- wonderfully different (and having a sense of humor certainly doesn't hurt).

Her goal in life is to share laughter and to bring a little sunshine into everyone's day. "After all," Kinley says, "kindness costs nothing to the person giving it, but it can mean the world to the one who receives it."

But I have to do it here. This book was disappointing to me. Here's why:
The ending stunk. *SPOILER AHEAD* Jack spends his whole life hating Wallingford for many reasons. All of a sudden, when Wallingford shows up on the island, Jack forgives everything because he thinks that's what Lorelei would want. Um, I highly doubt that that much justified anger and hostility would all but dissolve just because Lorelei wished it so.
Lorelei tells both Justin and Jack that she loves them both. Jack is understandably upset by this, but that's the end of it. Yes, I believe you may be able to love two men at once, but I don't find that a particularily compelling storyline in romance novels.
Jack and his crew spend the entire book telling Lorelei how horrible Wallingford and his son are. Yet, no mention is made of anything horrible that Justin has done. Besides being a pasty-faced bore, he really doesn't do anything that deserves Jack or his crew's rage. On the other hand, Wallingford does all of these cruel things and Lorelei seems totally unaffected by it. She never confronts him with the horrible stories she has heard.
Wallingford is supposedly this cruel man. He burns people alive and kills for sport. Now, because he is dying, he becomes this crying mess of a man who everyone forgives and he dies a peaceful death. Come on! And Wallingford's other sons never address the fact that Black Jack is their brother. That is never discussed. Lorelei's reaction to finding out that her ex-fiancee and her current lover are half-brothers is never discussed. It should have been an integral part of the book.
The sex scenes were totally tame. The book is entitled, "Master of Seduction." In my humble opinion, Lorelei did most of the seducing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Master of the Cop-out June 22 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lorelei Dupree is a spunky Charleston debutant who never met a man she couldn't tame. Recently engaged, she convinces her lieutenant fiancé to let her help him catch the infamous pirate Black Jack Rhys. Dressed as a serving girl in a pub where the pirate is being set up, Lorelei recognizes Rhys as the man she danced with at a society party the night before and immediately fingers him as the man they're after.
Jack Rhys had a rough life. His mother was a prostitute (is that a pirating prerequisite?), but he's raised himself up from a cabin boy to be the captain of his own ship. He kidnaps Lorelei in hopes of luring her fiancé and his father (Jack's nemesis) into a trap.
Lorelei isn't just feisty in the wallpaper sense, she really is, and I find it refreshing to see a heroine who is self-possessed and confident. She does come across as a little dim sometimes, but on the whole she's likeable.
Jack is a little complicated because of his horrible childhood, but we never really get the satisfaction we need from the build-up of his story because the book ends on a total cop-out.
The romance is nice, and I find myself wishing I could see it in a different setting where it would come off as a little more believable. Jack falls hard for Lorelei, and I'm a sucker for a strong guy who is flattened by gut-wrenching love for his gal.
One of my biggest problems with this book is Jack's pirate ship, which seems more like a fantasy rendition of a pirate ship than reality. All of the pirates are nice. Some of the men have wives on board. It seems that everyone and their brother has a cabin on their own, and I'm beginning to wonder if this is supposed to be some late eighteenth century cruise ship or something.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swashbuckling fun on the high seas Nov. 5 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
There is something about her writing style that draws me to her books, the witty conversations, humorous situations, complicated hero - it's a win, win combination.
When Lorelei gets kidnapped by the pirate Black Jack Rhys, she is so certain about everything in her world - mainly all pirates are murdering, raping thieves. Except, every time she is in his company he treats her as a Lady, even if he is out to seduce her! For Jack, women are only good for loving and leaving, hence the title Master of Seduction. However, every time he has a verbal sparing match with the enchanting Lorelei he finds himself more entangled in a web he doesn't understand.
From tantalizing art work to a ship wreck (as only one near death experience), MASTER OF SEDUCTION will enthrall anyone looking for a good story and provide many opportunies to laugh. Oh and when I mention art work, I should add, Lorelei's version of painting fruit... it is the best! I can say no more! As I really enjoyed Jack and Lorelei's story, I highly recommend this book.

I just discovered Ms Mac Gregor, having first read Claiming the Highlander, which took me to Sin's story and now Jack's and Lorelei's. I appreciate her strong heroines. They have pluck without being obnoxious. They have feminine strength and grace and give as good as they get. My only problem and I'll just address Master of Seduction is the need to tie up loose ends with forgiveness for horrific behavior. In Seduction I could understand Jack's forgiving his mother for her treatment, though that in itself took Christian charity to the limit. But, I find it very hard to believe that anyone could forgive his father. He abandons Jack three times, first with his mother, second after his mother's death leaving him in slavery to a sexual predator, and finally by not letting his maternal grandfather reach him before his death or after with an inheritance that would have sustained him. Ms Mac Gregor creates cruel mean characters to innocent children and then in the last few pages of at least 2 of her books expects all to be forgiven. What is truly hard to fathom is her heroines would facilitate these acts where the victim is expected to make the first move. She should stick to her good use of lively dialog between her lovers and if she wants to have vile characters don't try and wrap it all up neatly in a bow at the end.
