Book Description

Finalist Bookseller’s Best Award
Brooke Hammond leaves England determined to make a success of the Louisiana plantation she inherited. Only one obstacle stands in her way--a devilishly charming, infernally arrogant obstacle named Travis Montgomery, co-owner of her estate. If Travis marries and produces an heir within the year, Moss Grove will be his--unless he marries Brooke. Seducing Travis and then sending him on his way should be simple, but the searing desire Brooke feels in his presence presents an unexpected complication ...

Travis took his father’s dilapidated estate and turned it into a profitable enterprise, and no woman is going to claim it from him. So begins a contest of wits and will, where temptation and torrid kisses are the weapons of choice, and surrender the ultimate prize. But for two worthy opponents, winning the battle may mean losing everything that matters...

FINALIST IN THE HOLT MEDILLION AWARD.                                

 "The first book in Seduction series about three women embarking on new lives in America is an action-packed, sensual tale of the Old South akin to classic plantation novels. "The characters reach out of the pages, making a mark on your heart."  Kathe Robin - RT Magazine

 "Treachery and the excitement of a duel give readers much to keep their interest going. I enjoyed reading about their adventures and the different characters who mold their futures. I high recommend this novel. Brenda Jernigan is a very talented author."  Fresh Fiction - Kay Quintin

5 -Stars - This author has dared to go against the grain and has earned my high regards. BRAVA! I can hardly wait for the nieces' stories to be told. Detra Fitch of Huntress Reviews
5 Stars - Brooke is a fascinating lead character as she bravely travels to Louisiana in search of a new life, but finds prejudice meets her, which in turn she courageously confronts. Her strong sense of self worth as the audience will root for her to win her new home and his heart, both going up against incredible odds. Harriet Klausner

From the Author

Courtesans rose from various backgrounds to positions of great power, independence and wealth.  Some became the toast of London. They controlled their lives and the lives of others.
Most embraced the life they lived and wanted nothing more.  And then there were woman such as Brooke Hammond who wanted none of it.
She didn't start out to be a whore.
Or should she use the more dignified word . . . courtesan.
Life was a game of survival, and that was exactly what Brooke had been doing . . . surviving and hoping a better life would come along.
And at long last she had her chance . . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Julie Lence, Western Historial Romance author August 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Ms. Jernigan's, Southern Seduction is a quick-paced romance with a 'whodunit' at the end. Former orphan and courtesan, Brooke Hammond, has inherited a southern plantation from her friend the Duke. She journeys across the ocean to the States, eager to start a new life and finally have a home of her own. What Brooke doesn't know is the plantation also belongs to Travis, the Duke's illegitimate son. Right from the start, Brooke and Travis find themselves at odds with each other as each wants sole ownership of the plantation, the terms of the Duke's will be damned.

Travis is a strong alpha male, with a soft heart deep down. Labeled a bastard and made to take the blame for poor choices his mother made when she was young, he sees the plantation as an opportunity to disprove the naysayers and maybe gain a bit of respect from his mother and grandfather. Brooke is smart, sassy and level-headed. Able to thwart Travis' dismissal of her, she finds kindness goes a long way in winning over the stubborn southerner. I sympathized with Travis and Brooke. They are two lost souls desperately in need of love, forgiveness and acceptance. Little by little, as they set aside their rivalry, I found myself cheering for them and wishing for them to find happiness after a terrible tragedy during their honeymoon voyage on a Mississippi riverboat threatens to destroy the love they've found with each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars This story seduced ME from the start. December 4, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Brooke Hammond had not chosen the life of a courtesan. It was the only way for her to survive. Her life changed when she was taken under the wing of Jackson Montgomery, Duke of Devonshire. Their relationship was platonic. Jackson had promised he would leave Brooke and his two nieces, Jocelyn and Shannon, well taken care of. When he had died, he'd left Brooke his American plantation, Moss Grove, and enough money for the young women to leave England for a new life. Mr. Jeffries, the solicitor in charge of the duke's affairs, went with them.

Once in New York, the three ladies have a tearful farewell and go their separate ways. Mr. Jeffries travels with Brooke to Moss Grove. However, the duke had not told Brooke the entire truth. Brooke arrives at Moss Grove, in New Orleans, to find out that Travis Montgomery, Jackson's son out of wedlock, is already in residence. Mr. Jeffries reads Jackson's will aloud and shock Brooke and Travis to their very cores. The two are now business partners; both have inherited half of the sugar plantation.

Travis is furious! He knew Jackson never really cared for him. When Travis was but sixteen, the duke had sent Travis and his mother, Margaret, to live on the failing plantation. Travis has only recently managed to turn Moss Grove into a profitable business. Due to other items in Jackson's will, Moss Grove may fail after all. Currently, Travis's mother is up north with Hesione, his fiancée. With luck, by the time they get back he will have managed to get rid of the unwanted business partner. No matter how lovely the "widow" is, Brooke could ruin everything.

Brooke is not happy with the news either. Due to the will's terms, should Travis marry Hesione, Brooke would no longer have a claim to the estate.
