Synopsis:
Although the widowed Lady Rebecca has sworn off marriage, men are another matter. London's cold winter nights have her dreaming of warmer pursuits-like finding a lover to satisfy her hungry heart. Someone handsome, discreet, and most importantly as uninterested in marriage as she is. Someone like Jack Fulton.


A known adventurer and playboy, Jack seems like the perfect choice. There's just one problem: Jack isn't interested in an affair. He needs the beautiful, mysterious Lady Rebecca to be his wife. And he doesn't have much time to persuade her. A secret from Jack's past is about to surface, and by Christmas Day he'll be either married to Rebecca or dead.

Isalys's Review:
A Season of Seduction by Jennifer Haymore is the third book surrounding the Duke of Calton and his eclectic family. This book follows Becky (Garrett’s sister) and Jack’s story. Although the book stands alone very well, I highly recommend reading its predecessors because the heroes and heroines from the previous books will make several appearances in this one.

Lady Rebecca Fisk, better known as Becky, has been unlucky in love. At the young age of 18, she eloped with William Fisk only to learn that he was a complete scoundrel of epic proportions and she was nothing but a pawn to him. Now, four years later and no longer young and naive, she is contentedly single and decides that she is ready for tryst. She decides that Jack Fulton is just the man to take as a secret lover. He is incredibly handsome, charming, well-traveled, and adventurous; the perfect candidate for her sexual endeavors. Most importantly, he is as uninterested in marriage as she is – or so she thinks.

Becky, with the help of her friend Cecilia, thought she had it all figured out, but even the best laid plans can go hopelessly awry. Now with her reputation damaged beyond repair, she has to decide whether she’s ready to marry again because quite the contrary to her own plans, Jack doesn’t just want Becky to be his mistress but he wants her to be his wife. The dark past that he escaped so many years ago is quickly catching up with him and making Becky his wife would be the perfect solution. He must convince Becky to marry him before Christmas or his past mistakes may cost him his life.

Although Jack cared for Rebecca from the start, he finds himself falling more hopelessly in love with her with each passing encounter and yet she’s the one that remains aloof. Becky thought that she was strong enough to resist Jack, but she slowly realizes that he knows her and understands her in a way that no other ever has. How much longer can she hold on to her defenses? Through the act of properly courting Becky, Jack understands that his time is running out but that is secondary to his growing attachment to her. Unfortunately, that doesn’t change the fact that he’s walking a very fine line for he cannot let Becky discover the real reason for his initial interest in her.

Jennifer Haymore has done it again! She’s given us a story that is full of romance, passion, intrigue, and suspense. Even though this is the third in a series, she has a true talent for making each book equally engaging in its own right. This story is unique in that it is the hero who pursues marriage while the heroine remains distant. While I do not want to give away any of the plot or dramatic scenes, I will say that I was proud of Becky’s character. She possessed an inner strength, independence and fearlessness that I find somewhat rare in many Regency heroines. There were certain scenes where these traits really shined. Jack, whose interest in Becky was a bit disingenuous at first, became really endearing when he put Becky before his own life. He proves himself to be a true hero in every sense. The only areas in which I felt this novel fell slightly short of its predecessors was that the plot was not quite as complex and the villain was a bit weak as compared to the previous villain. However, having said that, this novel was still a joy to read from cover to cover and I highly recommend it to all lovers of romance!
