Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Former Harlequin author Jordan (The Heart Breaker) writes highly charged erotic historical romances. Her latest--set in 1810 England--opens with a graphic bondage scene, and the thrust of the book is the sexual education of a beautiful but repressed widow. Damien "Lord Sin" Sinclair keeps company with a depraved aristocratic set devoted to carnal pleasures. Lady Vanessa Wyndham falls into his clutches when her scapegrace brother falls afoul of Sin in an incident involving the accidental crippling of Sin's sister. Challenged to cards, the young man loses heavily, and it's up to Lady V to convince Sin not to foreclose. A nasty bargain is struck: she'll become Sin's mistress to pay off the family debt. But ultimately it becomes clear that the notorious nobleman has met his match: "He had tutored her in the arts of love-making, but she had taught him to love." Readers who devour the erotic historicals of Susan Johnson (see above review) will enjoy this, but those turned off by scenes featuring masturbation and ivory dildos may choose to pass. (May)

I've read this book twice in the past three months (yes, reading plenty of other things, too!) , and have begun my third reading of it.....
It takes a LOT to make me want to keep and re-read a book.
But there is a true and beautiful love story, completely believable, which happens to Damien Sinclair and Vanessa Wyndham. It's one of only two romances I've read where I feel the characters are so real and so compelling that I truly care, deeply, what happens to them... their story has moved me, very , very much.
Most romances I enjoy very much, then put them down when I've finished them, and think, 'wow, that was fun, I want to read another one'...
This one is more like : "Oh --- how beautiful -- thank God they found each other. This is perfect! I am so happy for them!" It's not at all the little fun smile you feel at the end of a romance novel. It's a feeling of complete joy.
He is not at all what he appears to be. Vanessa finds this out. And she also finds out, thanks to him, that she's loaded with passion and feelings she never knew she had. And he is so incredibly patient with her -- it's just gorgeous. Even though at times it 's maddening to have to 'wait' for the two of them to finally make love, the delays are completely believable , for both of them. Especially as he's promised her over and over again he will wait until she's ready . And boy , does he EVER make it worth her while that he waited for her (it was driving him crazy, too, but he was a complete gentleman....) It makes their eventual joining 1,000x as sweet and beautiful as your standard romance. WELL worth the wait. Then, the most utterly beautiful scenes, where he's in essence guiding her through her own brand-new feelings... I don't want to give all the book away, here...

This was the first book I have ever read by Nicole Jordan, as soon as I was done with it I went out and bought three more of her books. This story was really two romance novels in one. Of course, you have the main couple Vanessa and Damien and they were a great couple! I always love to see a man change to the win the love of a lady. This book gave Damien a lot of depth and emotions of his own, which was great because a lot of times the heroes are left without a lot of depth. The only reason that I gave this book a four is because of some of the things Vanessa did, I did not feel drawn in by the fact that her brother had no problem with allowing her to become a man's mistress to clear-up his gambling debts. That whole thing was the weakest part of this story for me.
Olivia was a great addition to this story, she was a person that I found myself cheering on the whole time. When Vanessa first meets her and she is that dark room lying in bed her heart having been broken; I wanted to jump in the book and try to make her feel better. I felt that she was someone who was supposed to a subcharacter in the story, but ended up being a main chararter to me. Aubrey he was the least likable person in this book if he was my brother I would not have been as nice as Vanessa was about the problems his selfish behavior caused.

Now this is brilliance. Candlelight, wine, roses, and a caring hunk, what more could a woman ask for? If you are looking for the ticket to sweep you into a land filled with fantasy and captivation, then unlock this portion of Nicole Jordan�s engaging �Notorious Series�. Caution: lust and desire are sharing your first-class accommodations.
The widowed Lady Vanessa Wyndham is a resourceful sister. The reprehensible Lord Damien Sinclair is a loving brother. To soothe family difficulties they become players in a provocative agreement. Nicole Jordan effectively negotiates the terms and the winner is the delirious reader. The sex scenes are electrifying, but the author never allows these scenes to drift from the story. This is the novel�s strength.
Jordan does an attractive job on the personalities of her characters. Vanessa is strong, intelligent and kind. Although her first marriage was an ordeal, our heroine never appears the mangled �butterfly�. This is refreshing. Damien is the typical English rake, but the author�s handling of his reform is a gift to behold. Well done Ms. Jordan.
The prologue is the book�s major weakness. I suspect most readers enjoy a little foreplay before the heavy intimacy spills onto the pages. Unfortunately, in this book�s introduction, the author shoves her unprepared audience, into the torrent, without a breath.
The author saturates the final pages with immense activity. The reader is traveling at warp speed; warning, buckle your seat belt. Viewpoint: Jordan should have slowed the conclusion and scrapped the prologue. Nevertheless, these are minor flaws. �The Seduction� is a good book -- for the keeper shelf.

The hero is a total twit. He tells her she has to sleep with him in order to make up for her brother ruining his sister's life with a thwarted elopement. As if ruining one woman is going to make up for it?
He treats her like a tart, and then wonders why everyone else does as well? He next agrees to tutor her in how to please a man so when he inevitably dumps her she will be able to get a higher price on the open market, when all he has to do is stop the vendetta against her brother so they can keep their home and fortune. He is a disgusting human being who leaves her open to scandal, ruin, VD, and rape at an orgy set up by his friends.
The heroine says it all when he attempts feebly to propose to her to try to keep her for his own selfish reasons. He is the kind of man she couldn't love. He doesn't know how to love. He is a rake and a user with no redeeming features except, as he says himself, an ability to make money, which he then throws at every problem.
In the last 20 or so pages of the book he then 'reforms' and gives her lavish gifts for her services rendered which any woman with an ounce of self-respect would refuse. The brothel scene is really the last straw. She is just an object to swive, not even with his own natural endowments most of the time, if you take my meaning. There was no love, tenderness or commitment in this book, and the saccharine sweet romance between the sister and brother is the only high point of this otherwise awful novel.
I would give it negative stars if I could. Spicy is one thing, but there is no romance. And the writing style is so poor that the word 'erotic' appeared on virtually every single page of every single sex scene. Of which there were way too many. Please can we have some characters that speak and develop and grow, not pieces of anatomy that go up and down, in and out, round and round etc.
