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...

Format: Paperback
"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.

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.

I could not find any of these people to like. Elizabeth was one of the most self centered people in any book I have read. Even with her child, she never thought what was best for him. But apparently she was head strong and flighty even as a young girl.

Format: Paperback
This is the second in the Naughty Girls series by Emma Locke, and was just as enjoyable as the first. I was concerned that a story focused on Elizabeth, former courtesan yet to the manor born, would be less enjoyable than the first: her character was grasping and jaded, not particularly empathetic. When she lost custody of her child to her former protector, and the child's father, she needed to make some life changing decisions and alterations and this book details those.

Elizabeth was in crisis: separated from her child and desperate to regain custody and her motherhood role she needed to find a man to cast doubt on the parentage of her son. Enter Lord Constantine Alexander: fourth son of an impoverished family, needing the money to avoid another sentence to debtor's prison. What started as a business arrangement slowly becomes a sweetly constructed romance despite constantly battling adversaries and pitfalls.

Elizabeth has some wholesale changes in character that show her defenses are hiding a lonely and tender heart. Her true strength of character is shown in the no-holds-barred reflection on her life, and the realization that she can't continue to live as a courtesan and be a good mother to the son she loves so deeply.

Con is cleverly portrayed as a very happy go lucky man, fond of wine, women and song and prone to some bad gambling habits. His heart is full of good intentions, if his life is fraught with bad luck: but his humor and the knowledge that his family loves him provide him a good start. Slowly his kinder nature, not without some clever and spot-on impressions of people he encounters deepens the connection he shares with Elizabeth.
