Oliver Leighton, The Earl of Norcroft, was as surprised as
anyone when he won the tontine that he and his friends had
set up as a rather silly bet as to who would be last man of
their group to marry.
After all, out of all of them Oliver was the only one
that wasn’t actively avoiding marriage.
In fact Oliver would not have been averse to the idea
at all – if he could find the right woman, something more
difficult than expected, as Oliver wants love – yes, Oliver
is a romantic at heart and he refuses to settle for a
marriage for less than love.
So with a heavy heart, and his winnings, Oliver sets
off to his country home to settle his mind and finds a
stranger that just might be the woman he has been looking
for his entire life…
Kathleen MacDavid is desperate.
She must marry Lord Norcroft to end a curse that has
plagued both their families for centuries.
But how does a woman go about convincing a stranger
that he must marry
her in order to save both their families?
Especially when not even Kathleen is at all sure that
the curse if real, but not to fear her aunt has a plan – a
dangerous thing in and of itself, but it will get Kathleen
in the door of the Earl’s home.
But when the plan goes awry and Kathleen loses her
memories due to some freakish accident everything becomes
more complicated, especially when Kathleen remembers her
true reason for being in the Earl’s home…
This time it’s Oliver’s turn to fall in the parson’s trap –
except that he would not mind at all, if he could find a
woman he could love.
When Kathleen practically thrown at him by fate,
Oliver doesn’t miss the chance and finds that she is the
embodiment of everything he wants – intelligence, wit and
Seduction of a Proper Gentleman
is a fantastic conclusion to the
Last Man Standing
series by Victoria Alexander as it nicely wraps up a
wonderful series full of witty and sensual characters that
are not easily forgotten.
Oliver will charm you from the first page with his
romantic heart and sharp wit that more often than not is
directed at himself and his own foibles, making it funny
beyond words to follow his thoughts and impressions.
Kathleen is also a charming character full of
vulnerabilities that make her a character readers will be
able to relate to without difficulty.
As we have come to expect from Victoria Alexander,
Seduction of a Proper
Gentleman is full of sensual moments between Oliver
and Kathleen, but what makes their interactions shine is the
skillful use of wit, sarcasm and humor to color the pages.
Ms. Alexander’s trademark use of witty main
characters surrounded by quirky, and somewhat odd, secondary
characters will pull you into this story and not let you go
until you turn the last page and leave you sighing at the
romance of it all!
Seduction of a Proper
Gentleman for an entertaining read that will
transport you to another age while making you laugh at the
antics of the characters.
