Sarah Banks grew up on an isolated island off the coast of Maine. Her innkeeper parents died when she was a teenager, and she found a new family with former guests, the Knights. She agrees to work as their housekeeper over the winter; then, when their oldest son, Alex, is presumed dead, she marries him by proxy so his children can remain with their grandfather and uncles. Sarah is shocked and amazed when a stranger materializes, claiming to be the missing father of the children she loves. After evading rebels in Brazil, Alex doesn't trust beautiful Sarah, who he thinks is scheming for his family's money. As Alex gets to know her, however, he realizes that the spunky, naive blond bombshell has no desire to exploit the wealthy Maine landholders. Now the challenge is to convince Sarah to trust him and make theirs a real marriage. Chapman presents a cast of rugged characters in rural Maine who enact a surprisingly tender romance.

Back in the way early days of history, women were victims of value, they were urged to find their fulfillment and identity through their husbands and children. So we have the heroine: Sarah Banks.
Altho,the heroine is basically likable and very sweet, sometimes Sarah's actions border on idiotic. This little domestic queen who can do everything...and yet worries excessively . And , she can't drive a vehicle to save her life. but with her looks, who cares right ..?
Alex Knight and Sarah were married by proxy. Three days later they declared Alex dead. Or so the story went! Alex's father had concocted the idea. He had found his grandchildren a mom - Sarah Banks. Sarah, now acting as Mrs. Alex Knight, could legally adopt the children and keep them safe from the family of Alex's first wife.Everyone is shocked by Alex's return, Sarah suddenly felt inadequate and she vowed she would never let someone make her feel inadequate again ..no matter how good looking and attractive. Besides Alex's father had promised Sarah a future would the family still honor it ?.
Sarah never expected to meet her handsome husband and Alex is shocked to come home to find Sarah there. He has no idea what to make of this gorgeous stranger he is married to. Sarah and Alex are very wary of each other and even after a night of shared passion, they struggle to make something of their relationship.
Alex discovers a potential threat in the Knight's lakeside town. When it comes knocking on their door, Alex and Sarah defend their home and family, and in the process they discover that their unexpected marriage may be exactly what they were looking for.
The Seduction of His Wife is a very pleasing and comfortable story. The Knight family, are good, genuine people and their lakeside home is peaceful and charming. Alex is ruggedly handsome and somewhat domineering, but Sarah knows just how to handle him. She is gorgeous, sweet and strong willed. Although it does take Alex and Sarah a while before they give in to their hearts' desires, The Seduction of His Wife is a tender romance. With a bit of mystery and action thrown in, The Seduction of His Wife is a very enjoyable story.
