In 1819 though both are aristocrats sharing some commonality in terms of invites, Lucien St. Aubyn and Elizabeth Montgomery detest each other. Elizabeth believes that Lucien is a "murdering whoremonger" living up to his reputation as the Duke of Death while he figures that in spite of her being the granddaughter of a cobbler she is the queen of snobbery.

A bored Lucien decides to seduce Elizabeth because she seems so unattainable. He tricks her with a phony note from a friend, but nosy Lady Derby catches them together without a chaperone. Shockingly, Lucien does the right thing by marrying the nay saying Elizabeth. As they become acquainted she realizes that his image as the king of rakes is a fake and that he feels guilt over killing his brother in a duel. He is shocked by how down to earth she is with the servants and farmers. As they fall in love, he is sent to Newgate to be tried for killing his sibling, but to her dismay he wants to die.

Regency romance readers will agree that Pamela Britton's latest tale is a pleasant experience. The story line hooks the audience who will want to see how Elizabeth and Lucien overcome the mind-sets of intense dislike for one another. Though their respective public images seems unreal when the audience observes how caring and nurturing the lead couple is, SEDUCED is a seductive read that the sub-genre crowd will appreciate.
