From the Author
SEDUCTION HAS NEVER BEEN SO HOT!
Seduced. The word alone conjures up all kinds of shameless possibilities, doesn't it? Sensual temptations. Erotic persuasions. Forbidden pleasures. You'll find all that and more between the pages of my latest BLAZE.
Ryan Matthews is a man who knows what he wants, and he's wanted sassy, sexy Jessica Newman in his bed for more than a year. Now he's going after her, and he'll do whatever it takes to make her his . . . including seducing her in the most delicious, sinful ways! His very innovative "cake scene" is sure to make you crave something sweet, and his inspiring "couples gift" will no doubt leave you breathless. Seduction has never been so hot!
I'd love to know what you think of SEDUCED. You can post your comments here at Amazon, or you can reach me at my own personal webpage on the internet.
About the Author
Janelle Denison never intended to become a writer, but her love of books and romance led to writing the kind of heart-warming stories she's enjoyed from Harlequin over the years. She lives in Southern California with her engineer husband, whose support and encouragement has enabled her to follow her dream of writing, and two young daughters, who keep life interesting and give her plenty of ideas for the young characters she includes in her books. Along with writing warm, traditional Romances for Harlequin, Janelle also writes modern, ultra-sexy stories for Temptation's Blaze series. Though she enjoys the diversity of writing for these two different lines, she strives to make all her books emotionally satisfying reads. Janelle enjoys hearing from readers.

Jessica uses lawyer jokes to keep her distance from Ryan. However, he raises the sensual heat in the hope to begin kissing, caressing, and do even more with her. However, even Ryan was not prepared for where their relationship begins to go as he and his target fall in love, but she knows he does not want a family, let alone a wife.
The lovely lead couple will SEDUCE readers whose romance blazes across the story line. The tale is often humorous at the cost of lawyers as Jessica amusingly ridicules the profession and sensual as well. This duo heats the pages with their desire for one another. Fans of smoking contemporary romance will be TEMPTED to want cake and other Jennifer Dennison novels after reading this romantic romp.
The biggest difference between the two romances is that this time around it is the male of the species who is being aggressive and the female who is raising the objection that this relationship is not going to work out. That is the more serious concern; the other is that Ryan is a divorce lawyer and Jessica hates divorce lawyers (jokes abound big time). However, the real problem is that Jessica is intrigued, to say the least, by Ryan's plans for her sexual seduction. The key phrase is certainly "forbidden pleasures," and the big question is whether Janelle Denison and her male lead can meet the challenge of providing both Jessica and the readers with the desired heights of romantic imagination. Things like "Better Than Sex Cake" would certainly be along those lines.
I liked "Seduced" better than "Tempted," not just because it is a "chase" romance, where the guy chases after the gal, but because of the creativity of Ryan's pursuit. If you have a male friend who is clueless when it comes to ways to sweep the woman of their dreams off her feet, then slip them this novel so they can pick up some pointers. I sort of wish that Ryan and Brooke had paired up, but that is mostly because the character of Jessica is forced to put off her submission as long as possible. She cannot really believe that he is offering anything more than sex and does not notice that she is seriously distracting him from his career goals. Consequently the readers get to the point where they think Jessica should be with Ryan long before the character does. However, it is clear that Denison likes to prolong the sexual tension before having her characters consumed by their passions.
You can enjoy "Seduced" without having read "Tempted," and you might even be able to enjoy reading them in the reverse order. Comparing and contrasting the two sisters is rather interesting, but it is the thoughtful and creative campaign of seduction wagged by Ryan Matthews that is the chief attraction in this romantic mini-series.
Jessica has no tolerance for lawyers, particularly divorce lawyers. A divorce lawyer had made life extremely difficult for her mother when she was a child, and she questions the ethics of all divorce lawyers now. Yet she finds that she has little defense against Ryan's brand of lazy seduction and hypnotic patience. And she's certainly never before felt such instantaneous and wild passion. Yet she fights that passion, believing that his whole profession contradicts everything she believes in and wants for herself--"love, marriage and family."
Being a bachelor suits Ryan. He likes single-mindedly pursuing his career goals without the distraction of a serious relationship. At least his cat doesn't object to his sometimes grueling schedule and late nights. Nevertheless, he enjoys the time he spends with Jessica because he finds her so arousing.
Delightfully fast paced, SEDUCED will heat the coldest winter night. Reminiscent of the movie NINE AND A HALF WEEKS, with its marked sensuality and passion, SEDUCED contains alluring characters and passionate love scenes that will delight romance readers. A first class seductive read, SEDUCED is Very highly recommended.
