Seductive Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Seductive

This "romance" was disgusting. The heroine was a sex maniac. The leading man was a uncaring bang em an leave em kind of guy. There was no plot that I could figure out. I got so tired with the sex. Every page had sex and more sex. There were no tender moments in this book, I give this book a definite thumbs down.

    She loved Peter, but he was too blue-blooded for her. Elizabeth married an aging bull, Earl William Massey so she can go where royalty traveled. William wanted an heir of his seed, but seven unloving years later he died without ever obtaining a son. Elizabeth prays that now she is good enough to be a wife to Peter.

    Nicholas Massey learns that his deceased father was actually brother to an Earl and that he inherited Shenstone. Nicholas informs Elizabeth that she is a penniless widow, who can stay if she has sex with him. He promises that as a by-product she will be able to seduce her Peter. As they make love in every nick and cranny, they begin to fall in love, but that does not stop Elizabeth from stealing kisses with Peter nor search for evidence to prove Nicholas is not the heir. Meanwhile Nicholas worries that a killer, perhaps Elizabeth, wants him dead.

    SEDUCTIVE tries to satisfy too many diverse readers, as the tale never decides between what it wants to be: an erotic romance or a historical romantic suspense. The story line is fast-paced, but overwhelmed with too many subplots. Readers will feel a mixed bag towards Elizabeth, but admire Nicholas, a hunk, who belongs in the Olympics or Guinness for his ability to make love in the weirdest of locations. Thea Devine is a talented author, but her latest tale is not quite the divine novel expected from her.
