More About the Author

Long ago, as they say, in another time, when fast food hadn't reached our area and the only shopping was what the feed mill offered, I was reading a book that annoyed me .

My husband was lying beside me in bed, watching TV. Turning to him, I petulantly said, "How the hell did this book get published?"

"If you think you're so smart," he replied, with one eye still on the TV, "why don't you write a book?"

So I did.

It has a great storyline and has a lot of fast action.

He was a beyond gorgeous, sexy (well endowed!), untouchable, non-committal playboy alpha male hero.

It's easy to see why Susan Johnson is such a well-loved author.

Seductive as Flame by Susan Johnson
Historical Romance -Dec. 6th, 2011
4 stars

Alec Munro, the Earl of Dalgliesh, is trapped in a loveless marriage. Famous for his numerous liaisons and vicious wife, he does not expect to encounter the dashing and extraordinary Zelda MacKenzie. As they tumble headlong into a wild affair, Alec quickly realizes that his heart could be in danger...

I loved Zelda's character. She's so independent and modern, a complete departure from the usual fragile misses or feisty but childish heroines. I especially liked her leave it or take it attitude towards Alec. She is realistic; she knows that he's a legendary Casanova who's already married. She is prepared for their affair to end anytime. Alec on the other hand is the typical handsome and sexually powerful alpha male. To me, his character is not as exciting as Zelda, but the mystery behind his marriage and his mother's illness was my main motivation for reading the book till the very last page.

Steamy and full of suspense, this is one of Susan Johnson's best.

While this was written in typical Susan Johnson fashion, it didn't hold my interest. I enjoyed her older epic tales, of rakes and historical significance. This entire series is fluff. While I enjoy Susan's characters tremendously,in this outing, they lack depth. The story ended so abruptly, I was in total disbelief. Far from her best.

While I enjoyed the first book in the series Gorgeous as Sin, I found Seductive as Flame the last one in the series not as enticing. I have yet to read the other two in between. As a previous reviewer wrote there is not much to the story other than will Alec be granted his divorce. Even the secret which keeps Alec tied to his wife was easily deciphered long before it was revealed.

Nor is there much substance to the relationship other than sexual attraction. As always, Susan Johnson's sex scenes are well written and very HOT! but there was little behind them to make them intriguing. Johnson has an affinity for alpha males and invariably there is one sex scene where the independent heroine must be submissive but in her other stories there is usually some mitigating factor. I found Alec's jealousy of Zelda's previous lovers contrived. Although it must be said Alec was a more caring lover from the very beginning than her other characters who EVENTUALLY become caring. But I still found the instant love at first sight a little unbelievable.

I always wonder if Johnson makes her alpha male characters so loving to children to soften the blow of their less than kind initial treatment of the heroines. The scenes of Alec with his son were sweet.

I still know little of Zelda other than she really, really likes sex and kids.

Not my favorite Susan Johnson, it was a little empty.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on December 6, 2011
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1894, Scottish Zelda Mackenzie has just returned home after spending time exploring the Brazilian rainforest. She attends her cousin Jamie Blackwood's house party where she meets his friend an earl Alec Munro who shows he is interested in her.

However though attracted to the earl, she rejects his seduction as she refuses to bed a married man. He insists he has a "free" arrangement, but she still declines although she likes the way he is kind and nurturing with his young stepson. As Alec continues to press her into an affair, Zelda reconsiders her earlier position and agrees to a tryst. As they shock each other by falling in love, his feckless wife interferes with their relationship as much as his fear that he will prove to be just like his abusive dad.

This late Victorian erotic romance is a fun read though the storyline is emaciated except in the boudoir as the only external suspense involves to divorce or not to divorce his despicable wife. The heroine is a courageous person who does not acre one iota what society thinks of her; as what you see is what you get. The lead male is much more complex with an ugly history. Sub-genre fans will enjoy Susan Johnson's heater.

This is the Bruton Street series, courtesy Susan Johnson. Each book can be read as a stand-alone, but I recommend reading them as a set in chronological order as the H/h from previous books will be reappearing.

1. Gorgeous as sin - Fitz's and Rosalind's story - year 1891
2. Sexy as hell - Osmond's and Isolde's story - year 1892
3. Sweet as the devil - Jamie's and Sofia's story - year 1893
4. Seductive as flame - Alec's and Zelda's story - year 1894

SEDUCTIVE AS FLAME (Book 4)

Hero: Alec Monro, Earl of Dalgliesh/28 years old/married/Lord-playboy/$$$$/black hair/light blue eyes
Heroine: Zelda MacKenzie/26 years old/Scottish/dark red hair/violet eyes

It's been over a year since I read this book and I still think about Alec Monro, the Earl of Dalgliesh. He was a beyond gorgeous, sexy (well endowed!), untouchable, non-committal playboy alpha male hero. He may share your bed, but he will never share his heart. Quite unforgettable!

Yes, he was married, unhappily so. It was a marriage of convenience and both he and his wife lived separate lives, though she might have wished she could have had his heart.... Alec had continued his playboy ways, playing havoc with women's hearts all around.

But then his friend Fitz (book 1) hosted a weekend hunting party and so Alec met Zelda (book 3 - Jamie's cousin) and their attraction was instantaneous. Buckle of for a larger-than-life story with intrigue, secrets and of course lots of sizzling sex. An amazing book, one of my all-time favorites!

"...`I haven't seen you before.' His voice was velvet soft, lazy with provocation. But his gaze wasn't lazy; it was predatory, like an animal on the scent.
