Mary Ellen “Mel” Cartwright has made her way up the ranks of the theater to being the assistant director for a famous director.  One of his friends, theater owner Neil Van Doren, wants to hire her as the director for a new play he’s putting on at his theater.  They are supposed to meet for an interview.  To Mel’s surprise, he shows up at the rehearsal she’s helping to run, and he’s incredibly hot.  Will Mel act on her desire, or resist his staged seduction?

Staged Seduction features a lot of hot sex, some voyeurism, a hot hero, and a stubborn first-person heroine.  Mel doesn’t normally do one-night stands, but she’s afraid to have feelings for Neil so quickly.  Her first-person narration lets the reader follow her journey from doubtful to hopeful.  Neil is a great hero—clever, sexy, and caring.  I enjoyed Staged Seduction, especially the voyeurism scene, but one thing bothered me.  The story cut off too soon, in my opinion.  I would have liked to see how things turned out with Mel and Neil after she went to Houston to direct the play.  Even so, if you’re in the mood for a quick, hot read, Staged Seduction will fit the bill.
