Diplomat Alexis Castle's glamorous but stressful career dictates every move she makes. And in Moscow, where she's under constant surveillance and faces the very real threat of being compromised by a Russian intelligence agent, her moves are limited to a handful of carefully calculated cocktail parties. Briefcase always in hand, her poise is unbreakable--until the Russian navy makes a threatening move on fragile Ukraine, and she's forced to negotiate a solution with her new counterpart in the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, disgraced Russian submarine captain Victor Kostenko.

Kostenko, furious at losing his sub command for a trumped-up charge, refuses to engage the American on the Ukrainian crisis, but Alexis is persistent. The daughter of a legendary ambassador--and the new ex-wife of another top-level diplomat--she is driven by the need to prove that her success in her field has nothing to do with the men she's loved. She pursues Kostenko with all required propriety, but once she catches him, their diplomatic standards of engagement are slowly shredded. For now that Kostenko has seen her, he must have her.

And what the Captain wants, the Captain gets.

He agrees to discuss the Ukrainian crisis, but only on his terms. Kostenko teases Alexis, drawing her out of the highly structured world of Russian-American diplomacy. Each increasingly unprofessional encounter reveals another layer of attraction that Alexis struggles to deny, for to give in to her unshakable need for the Captain would mean trashing her career at best, and being arrested for espionage by the Russians at worst. For Kostenko, the possible outcomes of an affair with an American diplomat are no better. The facts are undeniable: they cannot be together.

"The Russian Seduction" was a very, very enjoyable read. I ripped right through it! If you love hunky Russian heroes and/or stories about state secrets and espionage, this is the book for you. I liked both the hero and heroine; they both had good motivations for what they did and how they handled themselves.

The story was twisty enough to satisfy, and the action moves right along. There isn't a dull moment in this story, and the conflicts between the characters feel real instead of manufactured.

The author, Nikki Navarre, has a gift for describing settings and almost turning them into characters of their own. I definitely felt the harsh beauty of Mother Russia in wintertime. And, important for any suspense story, the action scenes were tense and tightly written.

What would have made this book a 5 for me? I would have liked more time spent on the love scenes. The sexual attraction between these two was a major driver of the plot, so I would have loved more details about this part of the story. (I'm not saying it wasn't hot; I just wanted more!) Additionally, the ending felt a bit rushed. It would have been nice to have had a short epilogue scene that shows us where they ended up, since it's not clear at the end.

I also would have loved to spend time in Victor's head. However, I understand why the author chose not to do so, since not giving us that insight keeps us in just as much suspense as poor Alexis. That said, I really, really love getting the hero's POV in a book, and I missed it here.

However, those are relatively minor issues and certainly reflect my particular taste. I definitely recommend "The Russian Seduction" to anyone looking for a fast, fun, sexy, and intrigue-filled story. I plan to read the next book in the series.

Ms. Navarre has written a wonderful story filled with intrigue, a yearning to break free heroine, and a deliciously hot hero. Set within the sometime glamorous world of international diplomatic relations, Ms. Navarre regales us with a tale of two people from opposing countries who fall in love in spite of those out to ruin their reputation, credibility, and honor.

Ms. Navarre writes with accuracy and mastery. I'm looking forward to her next offering.

I am hooked from the very first page. I was promised to an awesome ride from the start. The author is supreme in her choices of words and to have an inside looks on how the diplomacy at work, that to me is just cherry on top. For me, this is a spy romance thriller. Both Alexis and Victor are of privilege families of their own countries, but they did not cross the line and betray the responsibilities they were given. I love how Alexis can hold her own and rise to the challenges, I admire her poise and grace, the unmatched intellect and the way she turned the table on the Russian government officials, totally took my surprise. The love scenes are steamy, tastefully done with no vulgar language. Finally, I like how the author ended the story. No fairy tale "marry me ", she just left us to wonder and imagine. Dear Ms. Navarre, you've got yourself a loyal fan here. Please keep the good works coming, I can hardly wait for your next novel. Brilliant works you've done.

Loved this hero. He's a Russian fantasy man come to life. May as well admit I pictured Dolph Lundgren in the role, lol.
