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.

Customer Reviews

The characters are well-done, the setting is good, and the plot twists are great.
L Diamond Reader
Disappointed in the shortness, as I'd wanted a long read, only to have the book end at the 60 percent mark.
Robert J. Schaefer
Max and Eleanor are a great couple and I loved seeing their second chance at love.

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.

I thought this a nice, well-balanced introduction to the series. It gave us a story of love renewed, and we met Caro, the heroine of The Importance of Being Wicked (The Wild Quartet Book 1), a novel I recommend. We saw her mother's reprehensible stifling of Caro, making Caro's rebellion inevitable. Interestingly, we also saw the seeds sown by Robert that would eventually cause great heartache for Caro.

The sweet, sometimes funny, love story of Max and Eleanor was a nice vehicle for this introduction, though it was a little slow in places.

I recommend reading this series in order for full understanding of the characters and their stories. I read #3 & #4 first. I think I would have gotten more from those novels had I read in order.

Enjoy your reading! :)

THE SECOND SEDUCTION OF A LADY by Miranda Neville is an exciting Georgian era historical romance set in 1793 England. A novella. #0.5 "Wild Quartet". The introduction to "Wild Quartet" series. What a beginning! Take a romp through Georgian England. A quick fun read with a bit of drama,lots of passion and love. First love lost than found again. Eleanor Hardwick and Max Quinton have passion,but a bet causes them to lose all. Five years later, love may just be found again for Max and Eleanor,for their passion still alive. A fun read and a great introduction to what looks to be an amazing series. Received for an honest review from the publisher.

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.

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