"And what now? I'm putting on the clothing simply to have it taken off."And why would proper Lady Edwina Ross dress to seduce "London's Perfect Lover"? Because Prescott Devane, the notorious rogue, is the only one who can help the desperate lady with her scheme to catch a blackmailing fiend. Because no one else could play the role of a love-struck fiancé so convincingly. Because a faux engagement, secrets, the threat of scandal, and the promise of untapped passion are too tantalizing to ignore. Because, if the need arises, every woman should know what to wear to a seduction....

What to Wear to a Seduction Reviews
Totally loved this story! Despite the fact the plot was somewhat common in historical romances - two strangers pretend to be engaged to solve a problem- the book never once had a dull or dry moment. Written so I was constantly left wondering what more would develop between Edwina and Prescott, or who the blackmailer was/what he'd do next, I never found myself zoning out of the story. As for favored characters, I SO love Edwina. Her transformation through the story (both inward and outwardly) is so enjoyable to see, and one that really allows the reader to become immersed in the story on many different levels. Edwina's strong, independent nature blossoms in the progression of the plot and she is most defiantly a character that a reader immediately connects with. Much the same can be said of Prescott. His inner turmoil surrounding his orphanage, adolescent love Cat, and struggle to open himself up to others makes him such an intricate character! The reader constantly finds themselves rooting for him at every chapter. As favorite scenes go, the first that stands out is the meeting between Edwina and Prescott. Not only is this scene rather comical in a subtle sense, what with Prescott's assumption Edwina strictly wants a potential lover, but also in the overt clumsy antics of Edwina; knocking over the ledger she is caught nosing through. The other award-winning scene strikes at the end of the book, the explosive scene among Sir Lee, Earl Wotton-Berret, Prescott and Edwina. This emotionally and action charged montage was page turning! Pure and simple!Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. From the underlying plot of Ginny being blackmailed to the surprising twist of the elder gentleman-turned-retired-spy being Prescott's grandfather- all went towards making this a very entertaining story!
This is a book which fits loosely in a series so be warned, it isn't the beginning. This series involves a group of people in London during the Napoleonic War. In this one, the heroine, a reserved Lady thanks her oppressive late husband, requests the services of a kind of gigolo who serves as an escort to ladies of the ton. She wants him to escort her to events not for his personal charm, or her libidinous impulses, but rather to catch a blackmailer and serve as a distraction. There is an interesting plot, varied and excellently crafted characters and enough overlap between books that one could, if they weren't terribly anal about it, read them out of order. She writes very well.I will likely buy all her books. But I have one complaint. Her overuse of the word, "musk" to describe the hero ad nauseum, I stopped counting at 8 mentions of his "pungent musky smell". To me that either means he reeks of body odor or 1970's perfume either one of which makes me want to gag. This is doubtful what the author hoped to instill her love scenes. Vomiting. Yes, undoubtedly, men stunk back then. They reeked of sweat, body odor, unwashed bodies, poorly cleaned bottoms, rotting teeth, disease and filthy hands and add the stink of horses, you've really got something. But do you really need to mention it in fiction when the heroine's lips are caressing his body? I mean EEESH! Pick another word.
I’m sort of surprised at the low reviews for this book. I thought it was a fun romp. I think the situations Edwina finds herself in are amusing, and I thought her and Prescott’s relationship was sweet. Edwina is sort of a spinster type heroine, so it made me grin to see her fooling around with Prescott, who’s got somewhat of a scandalous reputation. Of course, I wasn’t expecting too much, having found this book left in a desk. I read a lot of romance though, and I thought this book was better than the norm. I had never read any books by Sari Robbins, so I had no idea this was book #3. I think I need to check out books #1 and #2, because Sari writes really well.
