CTRR Award-

I positively enjoyed Seductive Secrets. Colleen Connally spins a tale that scoops up the reader and transports them into action, romance and intrigue. There is so much more that makes this story spectacular. It is filled with deception, treachery, romance, intense drama, and detailed characters that pull in the reader from the beginning until the end. The secondary players add great finesse to the storyline. I have to admit it was completely h

    Best Historical Romance I’ve Read in Ages, August 28, 2012

    Its been a while since I’ve settled into a historical romance this good. Between the gripping mystery surrounding the scandal of Alyce Hythe’s name and her passionate romance with Julian Casvelyn, Seductive Secrets had me hooked. Unpredictable catastrophe and suspicion followed Alyce throughout the novel, at every new page there seemed to be a new development to the scandal surrounding her and I absolutely loved it! Unlike so many other novels I was refreshed by the fact that Seductive Secrets was not predictable; I had no idea where the story was going to go next, every clue to the mystery was a surprise! As to the romance surrounding Alice Hythe and Julian Casvelyn… well lets just sa,y it was very steamy… in a good way. Overall I would definitley recommend Seductive Secrets to anyone who likes a novel where romance and scandalous mystery have a starring role.

    Someone wants Alyce Hythe dead…

    Shunned from London society for being the daughter of England’s most notorious spy, Alyce Hythe desires only to clear her father’s name. For years, she has been hidden away from all prying eyes, given a new identity and told to forget who she was. But strange things have been happening causing old rumors to once more be whispered. Long has Lord Julian Casvelyn lived with guilt brought on when his brother was murdered by England’s most infamous traitor. But one eventful night has changed everything Lord Julian believed about his brother’s death. Never did he suspect the woman he has just saved from certain harm is the daughter of that man. Now Julian is caught in midst of a conspiracy and desire for that woman. Thrown together by fate, the two search for answers long denied them and along the way discover a love that can free them both.

    Not quite sure if it is simply editing mistakes or just odd language choices, but it is a bit disconcerting and kicks the reader out of the story. For example, the male lead is shot. An innkeeper calls for a doctor. The male lead “eyed the man with contempt. It was to late to rectify his gratification, not with being shot.” Rectify his gratification? Odd. Can’t understand this at all.

    Explaining the circumstance that led up to the shooting, the male lead explains “It was the occupant of the room. I saw someone entered and discovered the foe stabbing the poor soul in the bed.” Stilted. Odd.

    The story meanders and does not always make sense. Not entirely certain why female lead believes what is driving the story. Not entirely certain why the “friend” somewhat older and wiser also buys in…

    The author needs an editor and proofreader.

    This book is a fun, quick read. It kept my attention from the first few pages. While it’s not without errors, I don’t think it takes anything away from the actual storyline. I would definitely recommend this book, especially for the price!
