    Eventually, Sam and Alex agree to go to an exhibition together where they talk about their mutual attraction and lust for one another. They go to her house and share sex and follow-up by making love in the garden. Next they go to his house, but his former lover makes wild accusations before being removed from the premises. Instead, of staying, Sam and Alex travel to his city apartment where they share more sex. They continue to make love with both striving for sexual superiority. As outside pressure mounts to break them apart, both wonder where this heated love affair will go especially when they leave the sheets.

    NY Times best-selling author Susan Johnson out climaxes herself with her latest erotic romance, SEDUCTION IN MIND. This Victorian tale focuses on the sex scenes and profanities that at times overwhelm a captivating story line of two individuals, afraid of commitment, falling in love in spite external interference and pressure to the contrary. The hero is either not human or Guinness material with how often he can get it up and the heroine is always ready for another round of hardball. Fans of XXX romances will desire Ms. Johnson's latest tale, but better keep a stud handy.
