Today I just finished The Problem with Seduction by Emma Locke. So let's just dive into the story and my thoughts.
The last time we saw Elizabeth Spencer, she was falling apart over the lost her child Oliver. Really heart-breaking. However, she came up with an hair-brain scheme to get her child back from her former-lover Captain Nicholas Finn. What better way than ask someone who might be in need some of some funds?
Lord Constantine Alexander happens to be that man. Constantine is in desperate need of funds to avoid the gaol. So, he accepts the terms of the agreement to get these funds. The challenge he has to overcome is to present reasonable doubt that Captain Finn might not be the child's father. Sounds easy enough, right? Oh boy.
First off, I did enjoy the first book The Trouble with Being Wicked and saw a lot of potential. Now that I have I read the second book The Problem with Seduction I have to say that it might be better than the first book. So here we go with more thoughts.
I absolutely adore Constantine. To his family and friends he appears to be this dissolute rake, when actually he has a heart of gold. Oh my gosh, Constantine would give the shirt off his back to help someone he cares about, which kind of landed him in trouble in the first place. In some aspect he is kind of gullible, but as the story progresses he learns to be a little more firm.
Then you have Elizabeth Spencer. Elizabeth starts to realize she needs to change her lifestyle in order to create a better life for Oliver. So, she is reform courtesan. Granted she doesn't slip back into old habits, but some her her seductive ways still make their presence known. It's hard to make a clean break from something you have been doing for 10 years of your life.
I must say this story is a little different from the first book and I think a lot of has to do with Constantine and his a lovable loyal goofy personality. Don't get me wrong, Constantine might be all those characteristic, but he also carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. Yet, he manages not to let it get to him, in my book that makes him amazing. I love the dynamic of Constantine and Elizabeth's relationship and how they get to know one another.
Overall, I enjoyed the The Problem with Seduction and seriously can't wait for more. Especially, since the next story deals with Constantine's older brother and I hope we get to see more stories about the other brothers. So, if you are looking for a story about a reform courtesan and a lovable hero you might want to read The Problem with Seduction.
Elizabeth was in crisis: separated from her child and desperate to regain custody and her motherhood role she needed to find a man to cast doubt on the parentage of her son. Enter Lord Constantine Alexander: fourth son of an impoverished family, needing the money to avoid another sentence to debtor's prison. What started as a business arrangement slowly becomes a sweetly constructed romance despite constantly battling adversaries and pitfalls.
Elizabeth has some wholesale changes in character that show her defenses are hiding a lonely and tender heart. Her true strength of character is shown in the no-holds-barred reflection on her life, and the realization that she can't continue to live as a courtesan and be a good mother to the son she loves so deeply.
Con is cleverly portrayed as a very happy go lucky man, fond of wine, women and song and prone to some bad gambling habits. His heart is full of good intentions, if his life is fraught with bad luck: but his humor and the knowledge that his family loves him provide him a good start. Slowly his kinder nature, not without some clever and spot-on impressions of people he encounters deepens the connection he shares with Elizabeth.
With several characters from the first story again appearing in this, and the introduction of new villains and supporters, the story builds to create a climax that was satisfying and set the groundwork for the next in the series. If you are a fan of redemption stories and like the regency setting, this is the series for you.
I received an eBook from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
