This is the first book in 'The Seduction' series and was a truly lovely little romance. It took me about two hours to read and ended at 88% and location 1441 of 1644 on my kindle. I fell in love with Helen's bravery and heart, and though Gareth starts out a little reprehensible, I ended up really loving him too. The romance was beautifully written and the sex scenes were spicy, but also tender and sweet. It was an emotionally engaging read and just an absolute joy to witness Helen's light and laughter heal Gareth's bitter and broken soul. I did feel like the romance was rushed however, which was the only real flaw in an otherwise touching love story. Ms. Smith is an obviously talented author though and I can't wait to read more from her. In fact I've already pre-ordered the next book in this series "The Rakehell's Seduction" which stars Gareth's friend Ambrose, which I'm really looking forward to =)
The first thing that attracted me towards this book was the beautiful cover that had me intrigued so much that I felt compelled to checkout the blurb that again is catchy and made me preorder this book which was at a huge discount of just 99c then.
I liked Lauren's writing style where she managed to draw my attention and hold it all through the story. Right from the start I was plunged in action and an overall atmosphere of tension. The writing is simple, expressive and had me empathizing and connecting with the characters and events.
I loved Helen and admired her determination to save herself and her brother from ruin. She endured silently and despite all her brother's recklessness and irresponsible behaviour, she still loved him. Her strength in even the most dire situations made me love her even more. She stood strong against Gareth's humiliating conditions and showed that she was truly a lady despite his not-so-honourable demands from her.
I hated Gareth initially and didn't like his rude dismissal of Helen's plight. I disliked him even more when he gave Helen no option but become his mistress, ultimately ruining her life. But despite this initial hatred, I started liking Gareth in the later part of the book when I got a better insight into his life and by the end I was rooting for him. Just imagine the transformation! LOL
The romance between Gareth and Helen is slow to start but which then becomes intense and pretty steamy. The ending had me going misty eyed and rooting for a happily-ever-after for these two broken souls who found completion with each other.
The emotional play is beautifully brought out and makes this book a memorable one. I loved how Helen finally found her place in life and finally found love in the most unlikely place.
The only downside of the story is that it seems a bit rushed and I would have loved to see it get better depth, had more pages been devoted to it. Anyhow, for now also it's entertaining and fun.
All in all, The Duelist's Seduction is a fun, quick and enjoyable historical romance that I loved reading. 4 out of 5 to it and recommended to all lovers of historical romance. I loved Lauren's style and will be checking out her other books too.

Helen and Gareth are lost souls. Together they navigate through their sorrow of losing loved ones and having expectations dashed. Helen sees her life as more than her brother’s keeper. Helen’s fine personality shines with Gareth. She is thoughtful and genuine and compassionate. Gareth, who believes he could never marry after the death of his wife, falls for Helen’s unending kindness. By the end of this story, I really liked Helen and Gareth becomes a romantic hero.
The characters in this story are incredibly well written. They feel like real people throughout the book which makes the story all the more exciting. I couldn’t get over how realistic the flaws were and each aspect of the characters in this novel was complemented by well written dialogue, which is often a rarity. Sometimes, the conversations and pain behind them were a bit too real and tugged at the heart strings.
This book is a quick read, so if you’re looking for a bit of a love story on the commute or a rainy afternoon then this is a must-read. I’d recommend to anyone who loves a good romance or drama. There are even some elements that will leave you on the edge of your seat, so don’t expect a dull moment.
