I am now convinced that Victoria Alexander might write some of the best love scenes (making love, that is) around. Evidence: Seduction of a Proper Gentlemen.
Its a delightful country romp with a bit of magic and amnesia mixed in to throw our hero and heroine together. And although I think the title should have been Seduction by a Proper Lady, it is nonetheless entertaining to watch the characters collide with a panache unique to Alexander.
The final book in her Last Man Standing series (gentlemen who make a tontine to see who is the last to wed), it displays the warm humor, mystery and conflict that are expertly developed throughout the series.
I love the portrayal of Lady Norcroft, our hero’s mother. And I also love that our heroine, although missing her memories, decides that she is a little vain, a bit of a tart, good at golf (unheard of for women), and most definitely desirious of seducing the suspicious Lord Norcroft.
Well worth a cozy nights read.
