Editorial Reviews

Review

"Max and Eleanor are terrific characters, especially as neither is typical. Neville's  sweetly sensual second chance at love is an absolutely delightful, whipped historic froth." - Library Journal

From the Author

This novella is approximately 26,000 words, between one quarter and one third the length of one of my novels. It takes up about 60% of the digital edition. The remainder comprises excerpts from The Importance of Being Wicked and books by other authors.

More About the Author

I grew up in southwest England. During my misspent youth I devoured the works of Georgette Heyer, Jean Plaidy and any other historical novels I could lay hands on. As a result I attended the University of Oxford to study history, ignoring all hints that economics might be a more practical subject. I spent several years writing catalogues of rare books and original letters and manuscripts for Sotheby's auction house in London and New York. Much of my time in this job was spent reading the personal correspondence of the famous. This confirmed my suspicion that the most interesting thing about history is people.

I now live in Vermont where I enjoy skiing and writing romances set in Regency England where it hardly ever snows.

The Second Seduction of a Lady is a historical novella that introduces a new series by Miranda Neville, The Wild Quartet. Eleanor is a woman firmly "on the shelf" and against the institution of marriage. She occupies her time by visiting relatives and helping out her many cousins. While visiting one of these cousins, Eleanor runs into the man who managed to seduce her and use her years before. Max knew he made mistakes with Eleanor, but he has never gotten over her and he is determined to make the most of his second chance, which proves to be more difficult than he could have anticipated.

I really enjoyed Eleanor's character, I understood her negative feelings about marriage (even though I didn't necessarily agree) and I like that she is an independent woman. She manages to do what she pleases and still be part of society. Neither Eleanor or Max are high up in the Ton, they are people who are easy to relate to. Max proved to be very dedicated to winning Eleanor over and I always love it when a man has to work to win his lady.

The Second Seduction of a Lady is a quick read, but the antics of Eleanor's cousin and Max's attempts to win Eleanor are amusing and enjoyable to read. I did not have any issues with the story, but at the same time it did not amaze me. The story is simple, yet enjoyable and provides a nice prelude to an upcoming series. I enjoyed the writing, the characters, and the story and will likely read book 1 in The Wild Quartet Series, The Importance of Being Wicked, when it debuts in late November.

Eleanor Hardwick lives her life the way she wants and thanks to an inheritance from her late mother, she can. If she wants to spend money of fancy bonnets, she will. If she wants to travel, she can. Yet, being the only child of a recluse father is very lonely so her travels often involve visiting her relatives and trying to help in any way she can, welcome or not. Eleanor takes one of her young cousins, Caro, under her wing since her mother is dastardly but her life is thrown into upheaval upon a walk when Eleanor and Caro stumble upon a young man and his guardian. The guardian is Max Quinton, the man who broke her heart five years ago with a cruel bet. Max is delighted to see the only woman who has laid claim to his heart and he is determined to make rights with Eleanor once and for all so he sets about a slow seduction to win her back. Unfortunately, he causes more problems as he uses his charge's interest in Caro to gain information and when this comes to light, the damage is done all over for Eleanor. Will a chase to Gretna Green together be enough to prove that Eleanor is the only one for him?

This novella (which was about sixty percent of my file, the rest were excerpts) is the kickoff to Miranda Neville's upcoming new series and was an enjoyable tale. When Max broke her heart, it cemented her belief that marriage is not for her, especially after witnessing her joyful mother wilt under her fathers boring lifestyle. Now, at the tender age of 30 (I loved that she was a bit older than the norm!), she is determined to live a quiet life by herself and she plans to shove Max away. Max is charming and quiet in his seduction of Eleanor and she finally allows him to explain his side of the bet and together they make great stride to happiness only for it to seem to fall away again.

Max and Eleanor finds each other after five years in the house of Robert his ward. Max seduced Eleanor for a bet because a man whose his wife cousin (Eleanor ) gave her some advice how she should treated her husband. The m an cursed and look for revenge and suggest a bet that who will kiss Eleanor.
Max accepted the bet and the matter does not resulted the way he wants. He fell in love with Eleanor and deduced her. When she finds about the bet she broke with him and refuse to seem him. After five years they meet again, Max is insisten to make amends to Eleanor to accept his marriage proposal. She accepts his proposal and they wed. The story is short but very sweet to see how couple managed to overcom their issues and reconcile their difference. I recommend this book and author, this is the first book of Mrs. Neville and not the last. Enjoy

I liked the H in this story, but was indifferent to the h. This was not a keeper. Disappointing read, given the quality of stories I have previously enjoyed from this author

A novella that gives Max a second chance to win Eleanor's heart and prove he is not the man she thought he was. He truly is a wonderful man and has never stopped loving Eleanor. It also introduces Eleanor's cousin Caro Brotherton who is the heroine in The Importance of Being Wicked. This novella is a nice introduction for the novel.

I like this series. I liked this book. The characters were well developed, even if it was a novella. We had a good window into the secondary characters to prepare us for "The Importance of Being Wicked" Worth the time and fun too!

This was good. I love historicals...and this one hit the spot, although not my absolute favorite. The characters are well-done, the setting is good, and the plot twists are great. I would recommend.
