Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The Problem with Seduction is the second novel in my Naughty Girls series, a double trilogy featuring three courtesans and three country hoydens who marry into the notorious Alexander family. These five outrageously charming rogues and their deliciously starchy neighbor give my girls six excellent reasons for behaving badly...

Emma Locke is a writer and engineer living in the Pacific Northwest, where she loves hiking with her dog, hot yoga and riding out the annual 330 days of rain. Hiking and yoga give her time to plot, the lack of sun makes for perfect writing weather, and as for her day job, the dichotomy seems to work: her analytic side ensures her passionate, satisfying love stories don’t mulch under her bed, and her author side forces her to keep writing more.

The H was sweet but I was left feeling that he was a bit of an idiot (TSTL).

This book was a punch to the solar plexus from the beginning.

"The Problem with Seduction" is both an exciting and frustrating find in the world of historical romances. Worthy of 5 stars is the unusual plot and engaging characters. The unlikely hero, Constantine Alexander is kind, indolent, boyish and aware that he is fairly worthless. He has little money, no profession, and has spent his adult life drifting around. He has done some kind things in that he supports some orphanages (sadly, a plot element not explored at all) and has spent a great deal of money bailing out his even more worthless gambling twin brother. Elizabeth Spencer is a prostitute whose hateful father disowned her when she ran off with man she thought would marry her at the young age of 15. Even the villain, Nicholas Finn, her married protector who is the father of her child, Oliver, isn't really such a bad sort. The novel deals with important issues of the times--women's plight, unequal "justice" in the courts, debtors' prison, the prison hulks, gaol fever (typhus), and the issues plaguing the impoverished aristocracy. For all the elements I praise Emma Locke. Sadly, her egregious grammatical errors, inconsistencies in style, and random modernisms would earn this novel 1 star if she's lucky. So, I've given it a 3 because I see potential. I'd highly recommend that Locke hire a good editor because she really could be one of the best.

Emma Locke's Lord Constantine Alexander is simply the fourth son and spare to the spares of his brother, the current Marquis of Montborne Constantine would be happy with his meager allowance, struggling investments and quiet life, except he has to constantly keep his twin brother, Darius, out of trouble. All of London sees Constantine as another feckless Alexander boy with too many debts, too many entanglements and too many complications -- and this is exactly the kind of man Elizabeth needed.

Elizabeth's proposition comes at the right time for Con, who needed the money Elizabeth was offering -- it was to have been a simple arrangement: get the baby and then get the money, but nothing in Elizabeth's life is ever simple and, when the inevitable complications arise, Constantine does what Elizabeth never expected anyone to do for her: stand by and protect her.

When we are first introduced to Elizabeth in The Trouble with Being Wicked , she is pregnant with her son and was, quite honestly, annoying: she fell pregnant as a last-ditch effort to keep her lover from straying and all she did in Devon was to moan and cry -- but Elizabeth in The Problem with Seduction, is a woman transformed by love -- the pure love of her son, Oliver. She is more circumspect and more grounded but, when Oliver was taken from her by his father, Elizabeth is moving heaven and earth -- and has resorted to lying and plotting (and ten thousand pounds) to get her son back.

Picture a romantic hero right now. What three words would you use to describe him? Brooding? Mysterious? Tortured?

Constantine Alexander isn't any of these -- and it is a refreshing attribute.

It's always interesting to see authors tackle Courtesan premises. Especially in this case, where the heroine just had another man's child. The hero enters the scene because he has money issues and the heroine hires him to pretend to be the child's real father. This should be really good, but I was underwhelmed by the characters. In reality they bored me. The writing is good and I would still recommend it for HR readers, but it's not my favorite work by this author.

I read this as part of the 'Tempted by his Touch' boxed set and I would never have purchased it other wise. I hate courtesan stories in general but this one wasn't even enjoyable. I loathed the h, she was duplicitous and unlikeable in general. The H was sweet but I was left feeling that he was a bit of an idiot (TSTL). I read romance for romance and this isn't it for me.

I honestly couldn't get though it. The beginning was cliché and could have been written by a kid in middle school but I wanted to give it a chance. It was only downhill from there. I started skimming just to get to the end. Con's internal dialogue sounded more like a female's than a male. The plot was boring and way overdone. Elizabeth's mind was too modern to be believable for this time frame. It was a part of a collection of stories I bought so I was wondering if other people had the same reaction. I don't understand how it got all the four and five star reviews. I don't like to write bad reviews but I feel like I should warn others.

This book was written very well. The plot was different than the usual historical romance and I enjoyed that for a change. It also tugs at your heart strings while you feel sorry for the courtesan in the book. For a change. It isn't the first Emma Locke book I've read and I wasn't sure I should get it because I wasn't that enamoured with the last one. This book entirely satisfied me and I will give her another chance if she writes more.
