~Review in German~
Criminal Jack Blackwood has plenty of problems, from his complicated relationship with his brother to the plethora of men coming to dethrone him as king of the underground. What he doesn't need is a rich, bored gentleman showing up to try to join his gang. Worse, he doesn't need that gentleman's sister, Lady Letitia Seagate, chasing after him demanding he keep her brother safe. If only the lady weren't so damned intriguing.
Widowed Letty is desperate to protect her younger brother, even if it means matching wits with the notorious, charismatic Captain Jack. Only the man has far more to him than she ever expected, and his tempting kisses and smoldering promises leave her wanting more than she has ever dared before. Can Jack uncover the truth behind Letty's darkest lies? And will they both survive the storm about to strike at the very heart of their passion?
Once more a wonderful book by Jess Michaels!
I really love her Regency books with their unusual and strong characters. They're always interesting and well developed and you just have to feel with them. Sometimes you laugh, sometimes you gnaw your nails because it's so exciting, sometimes you just sigh dreamily and sport a rather goofy smile but you're never unmoved by the happenings in the book.
Those of you who have already followed the Wicked Woodleys and their (successful) search for their (often unconventional) significant others will meet many old friends in this book.
In "Seduced" we also meet Jack Blackwood again, the brother of Claire's husband Warrick. Jack is a renown criminal, a king of the underground and right at the moment many people try to take over after another renown gangleader was shot a couple of monthes ago. Sooo - this is definitely not the best time to get involved with innocent members if the ton, no matter if it is a young man trying to be cool and important or the young widow Lady Letitia Seagate who worries about her brother and his quest for manhood. Only, well, very soon it is not just theconcern for her brother that makes her come back to Jack....
Of course things get much worse before they get better and the suspense kept me glued to my e-reader, right till the very end of the book!
This is another well spun story with many twists and turns and absolutely loveable characters that I can highly recommend! And if you don't know the other books by Jess Michaels yet - well, now would be the time to change that as well!
