I was never a fan of historical romances, that is, until reading Nina Lane's Daring Heart Series. If Nina writes it, I'll read it knowing I will savor every word, become mesmerized by the descriptive world she created, and be prepared to fall for another charming hero and heroine. A Study in Seduction absolutely did not disappoint. I was unaware this series was published a few years ago under the pen name Nina Rowan and kicking myself for not having the opportunity to enjoy this read sooner.


Lydia Kellaway and Alexander Hall, Viscount Northwood, had an instant and intense chemistry. From the awkward way they met to their competitive and playful wagers, I relished witnessing this couple fall helplessly in love. Both were vulnerable. Alexander was bearing the brunt of his family's sordid past, as Lydia was desperate to keep her secrets hidden. Each struggled with scandals that would destroy their reputations, and I was captivated by how the complications that threatened to tear them apart brought them closer together.  All this made for a salacious and intriguing plot that was shrouded with perils and mysteries.


Lydia was a spirited woman ahead of her time. A genius when it came to mathematics, she was highly educated and extraordinarily bright. Sassy and stubborn, Alexander had his hands full when dealing with Lydia but never shied away from a challenge. However, there was a somberness that surrounded her character that stirred my emotions. I loved how Alexander was determined to break through all Lydia’s barriers and unravel her heartbreaking secrets to claim her heart and trust.


Overly sexy yet confrontational at times, Alexander never gave up on his pursuit of Lydia while struggling to repair the damage his irresponsible mother caused his family. Never wanting to marry nor fall in love, his focus was to re-establish his place in society. That all changed when Lydia barged into his life and turned his entire world upside down. When threatened by a vile and nefarious villain, Alexander put everything on the line to save the woman he loves.


This sizzling tale was addicting. With a plot full of mysteries, secrets, twists and turns ~ there were times I held my breath, on edge from all the angst. A great beginning to a series I know I will fully enjoy. Five brilliant stars and highly recommend A Study in Seduction to fans of historical reads and romantic suspense.
