Review: Misadventures in Seduction by Robyn DeHart

Misadventures in Seduction (Masquerading Mistresses, #3)

Synopsis

With five siblings to care for, Prudence Hixsby 's duty comes first, even if it means becoming a spinster. When the eldest—and most cherished—of her younger brothers decides to join the war, however, Prudence is determined to keep him safe. So she strikes a bargain with an old acquaintance: her body in exchange for her brother's safety. 

In the dead of night, she slips into the bed of a man whose touch is both fierce and passionate... little knowing she's just seduced the wrong man.

Harrison Carlisle, the Duke of Sutcliffe, never imagined that that lovely Prudence would honour his bed, or just how bewitching those lush curves could be. Yet he keeps a gentleman's silence. After all, a spy for the Crown can ill afford to marry. But when Prudence's brother is killed, they find themselves uniting to track down the traitorous murderer. And while death lurks within the shadowy world of espionage, there is also passion... and the unbidden thrill of seduction!


Review

Even for a novella it has it all, romance, a little mystery, some action and an awesome plot. I didn't even feel like I wasn't reading a novel. It is so well written and character development is just perfect. I liked both Prudence and Harrison. Two people who don't seem to get along but secretly admire each other, faced a challenge together.

The story is fun to read. I generally love historical romance but it is rare for one to be this good. There seem to be no loopholes, no scenes that will leave room for disliking. Once started you will keep reading. That's the kind of book it is. In short I would say it is a must read for all bookworms. So glad I did. ;)
