Présentation de l'éditeur
The Girl-Bachelors are back in With Seduction in Mind, a Victorian England version of 10 Things I Hate About You by New York Times bestselling author Laura Lee Guhrke.

Quatrième de couverture
Her proposition . . .
London Society is harsh for a young woman with no family connections who has to work for a living. But when Daisy Merrick is sacked from yet another job, the feisty and outspoken miss comes up with a plan that could give her a future beyond her wildest dreams. There's only one problem. Her success depends on a man, the most infuriating, impossible, immovable man she's ever met. His resolution . . .
Sebastian Grant, Earl of Avermore, is England's most infamous author. Known for his notorious reputation, he is more interested in play than work, and has no intention of cooperating when Daisy shows up on his doorstep with a mad plan. The provoking, fire-haired beauty stirs his senses beyond belief, and Sebastian knows he has only one way to stop her. Seduction.

They end up isolated together in the country, sparks fly, they inspire and challenge each other etc etc. The dialog is witty, the developing relationship rings true and everything works beautifully until the ending. The conflict of the relationship is based on the hero's cynicism and inability to recognize his feelings even while he seduces the heroine. Without giving away any more specifics, the problem is not the conflict but the resolution. I would guess that readers will want the hero to suffer a little more and see a little more humility and growth after the way he had treated the heroine, ie; taking her for granted. The pacing was far too quick and didn't seem true to the earlier characterization of either hero or heroine. It actually felt like the author had reached her minimum page limit and decided she was done. UGH.
It feels a little ironic writing an unfavorable review about this book. Much of the plot centers around the conflict between writers and critics--specifically critics that don't have the right credentials to review books. LLG has a lot of quotes about the difficulties of writing beginning each chapter. One quote in particular rang true (not only regarding LLG, but all genre authors who must be given insane deadlines): that a writer begins an artist and ends a prostitute.
That said, LLG's latest book is well worth the time and money. I have enjoyed everything LLG has written and I look forward more and more from her . . .
The heroine tries to get the hero to help her become a better writer while helping him overcome his own writer`s block - and the demons he is fighting. I loved their interaction and how she doesn`t take "no" for an answer. The book made me lean back and enjoy the whole scenario and I was looking forward to seeing them continuing their banter and push-and-pull growing attraction for one another.
***** Spoler ******
Unfortunately the book ended fairly abruptly and I felt it would have been so much better if there had been an additional 50 pages explaining how and why the hero went from seeing the heroine as a great help to actually beginning to love her. We go from rejection to declarations of love without any kind of explanation and that left me a bit .... unsatisfied.
