Book Description

The Templar's Seduction is book 3 in The Templar Knights Series.

Bound by Deception…

Captured by a powerful English lord and sentenced to hang for murder, errant Templar Knight Sir Alexander de Ashby has little left in the world to care for, and nothing left to lose. In a last-minute reprieve, his captors offer him an unorthodox chance for survival...a bargain like nothing he had ever fathomed. He must agree to impersonate the Earl of Marston, a Scottish sympathizer who died after years in English custody – a man to whom Alex bears an uncanny resemblance. Only by infiltrating Marston’s border castle and spying for the English, will Alex gain his freedom. But first he must convince the people that he is their master returned...and the earl’s beautiful Scottish bride that his rightful place is in her bed.

Saved by love.

Having been but newly wed when her husband was taken, Lady Elizabeth is overjoyed that rumors of his death after long captivity were false—even as she is startled and then seduced by the passionate man who has seemingly come home to her. Though he is different in some ways from the husband she had known before, Beth suppresses her doubts, welcoming the roguish “earl” back into her heart. Little does she know that the handsome imposter intends to vanish once his mission is complete. And yet escape may prove impossible for him, even after his secret is revealed, for now it is Alexander who has been bewitched by this proud, remarkable lady…until he desires nothing more than to live—and die if he must—to protect and cherish her in return. For she has become his reason to survive, her glorious love sustaining and helping him redeem the sins of a lifetime, as he surrenders himself heart and soul to her in...


Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

For the final volume of her Templar trilogy (after Sinful Pleasures), McCall trots out an unlikely hero: the valor-deficient Sir Alexander de Ashby, a disgraced Templar Knight sentenced to death for trying to sell Templar treasure. Though he's "rarely capable of living up to his word," Alex is offered a chance at freedom if he agrees to impersonate the earl of Marston, a Scottish laird who recently died in prison, and who bore an uncanny resemblance to Alex. His mission is to infiltrate a border castle as a spy for the English. After intense coaching, Alex is ready to assume his role—but will his act convince the earl's fiery wife, Lady Elizabeth? Immediately smitten, Alex's passionate lovemaking and subsequent guilt almost give him away. As his love deepens, he comes to realize how his imminent betrayal and abandonment will hurt Elizabeth, but he also knows that his best friend John, still held by the English, will be killed if his mission is compromised. As Alex discovers his hidden heroism, he begins to form a plan that will protect Elizabeth and restore his reputation among the Templar. McCall's unconventional but engaging hero, strong heroine and fresh plot twists make this another winning historical. (June)

From the Inside Flap

"I want to clarify. Until I tell you I wish it, we will not...that is, we won't actually--"

"Consummate our reunion?" He relished the abashed expression his bluntness called forth on her beautiful face, finding some kind of perverse pleasure in being outspoken about the act he wanted to enjoy with her desperately right now, but that he had decided to resist for both their sakes. By all the saints in heaven, he must be mad.

But then she surprised him again by echoing, "Aye. Consummate our reunion." She lifted her brow, her hesitancy seeming to dissipate in favor of that other, more defiant air of hers. That almost insolent look that bade him `come hither' like nothing else he'd ever known. "You give your oath that you will wait and not attempt to resume our relations fully, no matter how great the temptation, until I bid you take the liberty?"

He felt the right corner of his mouth quirk as it always did when he was thrown a challenge, even as the blood began to beat hotter in his veins. "Aye, lady; that is my offer and my oath. But I think it only fair to warn you about something."

"What is it?"

"You will have one week of grace--but after that it is not I who will have the most difficult part of this bargain."

In THE TEMPLAR'S SEDUCTION, Mary Reed McCall's final book in her Templar Knights Trilogy (Beyond Temptation: The Templar Knights (Avon Romance) & Sinful Pleasures: The Templar Knights (Avon Romance)), this extraordinarily talented author spins an alluring, thrilling and intensely emotional tale set in the tumultuous medieval times; and perfectly layers it with her expressive and vivid writing style and diligent attention to historical detail. She gives her readers a true feel for all the elements--courageousness, fearlessness, chivalry and heroism--that exemplify the heart of that time period. And also introduces us to two remarkable and endearing people--who unwillingly become entangled in a complicated web of dishonesty and deception--but whose lives are ultimately renewed by the redemptive and healing power of "selfless" love.

This spectacular and enthralling medieval drama opens as Dunleavy Castle; an important border stronghold in the Lowlands of Scotland is faltering under the surprise attack from a neighboring Lord to their north, Archibald Drummond, the Earl of Lennox. Lennox believes the castle's lord, Robert Kincaid--after being held captive in an English prison for almost 5 years--has died; finally succumbing to the tortures of their brutal and rigorous questioning. And he's decided now would be the perfect time to reclaim the valuable stronghold, and its lovely mistress--ostensibly--in the name of Scotland.

However, he badly underestimates his opponent, Lady Elizabeth of Selkirk, the clever and capable mistress of Dunleavy.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
I see a fellow reader has done a phenomenal job at summarizing The Templar's Seduction by the super talented writer Mary Reed McCall, so I won't summarize. I know from reading that review she has enjoyed the book as much as I have. And I agree 100% with the reviewer, Mary Reed McCall's lastest is alluring, thrilling and highly emotional. Well worth it.

I loved TTS totally and completely, my favorite thing about this book is how MRM "shows" us our hero, Alex de Ashby's journey from bad boy to warrior. From the fun "game of merels" scene to the highly sensual love scenes between the heroine, Beth and Alex, to the dialogue, description, to the end, MRM weaves a delightful story of redemption and love. We see Alex go from self-centered, "every man for himself" type to one who learns to love again, and most important, learns to give without expecting something in return.

A crusader willing to sacrifice herself for others, Beth, our heroine, is a beautiful woman inside and out and is more than ready to defend her castle from calculating enemies. She's a woman who learns that trust and love makes her strong not weak.

I've read this book twice already and I know I will re-read it again down the road because I can't get enough of sexy, dangerous, charming Alex.

Whether you're already a fan of MRM's or this is your first book by this author, the final Templar Knights book, The Templar's Seduction will leave you emotionally satisfied and smiling.

Mary Reed McCall delivers an edge of your seat love story complete with characters you care for the moment they appear on the page.

5.0 out of 5 stars She Saved the Best for Last in her Templar Series! June 17, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Templar's Seduction is the final book in Mary Reed McCall's Templar Series, and she saved the best for last. The story is engaging, the heroine, Beth is a strong, capable woman who uses her head, and the hero, Alex, has a less than perfect past but manages to redeem himself for the sake of the woman whom he loves. The characters are thoroughly believable as their relationship evolves, and the bedroom scenes had me looking at my husband and going, "Hmmm... I might like to try that."

I'm looking forward to whatever Ms. McCall decides to write next!

5.0 out of 5 stars great medieval romance June 4, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1309 for his attempts to sell sacred artifacts, disgraced former Templar Knight Sir Alexander de Ashby is sentenced to death. However, he is given a pardon of sorts if he agrees to pretend to being the recently deceased Scottish earl of Marston, who died in prison. Realizing his choice is between a brutal hanging and masquerading as some earl who he apparently resembles; Alex accepts the Scottish "sentencing. In his assessment, he figures he not only stays alive but lives like an aristocrat and might find something worth selling. Besides which his best friend remains hostage to his successfully completing the assignment.

Alex is warned that the toughest person to persuade that he is real thing is Marston's forceful spouse, Lady Elizabeth. He figures he could fool any female until he meets her. For the first time in his life he wants someone with his soul. However, his passion exposes him, as she knows this fake is a much better lover than Rob ever was. Soon the pretender concocts a plan to keep his beloved safe and free his friend, while restoring his name or dying with honor.

The relationship (between the reforming roguish Alex and the reforming shrewish Elizabeth) makes for a great medieval romance. The final Templar tale (see SINFUL PLEASURES and BEYOND TEMPTATION) is fast-paced once Alex meets Elizabeth and never slows down as he continually goes over his options, which seem to be saving friend vs. his love. Readers will want to know if he chose the lady or the pal; either way he assumes he loses although he underestimates his soulmate.
