The Trouble With Seduction by Victoria Hanlen Review



Rebellious, Scandalous and Irredeemable

Sarah, Lady Strathford is ready for a little harmless frivolity with a man of her own age and her own appetites…surely that’s not too much to ask! After the death of her beloved husband years before Sarah is ready for an adventure… Enter the dashing, roguish – and baffling – Mr. Cornelius Ravenhill.

Ravenhill, however, is not the gentleman he seems, and soon Sarah finds herself battling against the corrupt and harsh world around her as it threatens to destroy all she holds dear. The question is, will her seduction at the hands of Mr. Ravenhill prove to be her saviour or her downfall?


This fun and sexy Regency romance is perfect for a delightful escape at the end of a stressful day.  I really enjoyed all the different themes that were explored and the multi-layered characters leapt off the page to greet me the moment I started the book.

Sarah, Lady Strathford is finally ready to embrace romance again after the death of her husband. I liked Sarah as a character; although she’d been through a great tragedy, she was eager to see what the future held in store for her. Then she meets Ravenhill, who’s sexy, dashing and more than a little mysterious. I loved the chemistry between them; it sizzled throughout the whole book, and Ravenhill was more than a match for Sarah, providing her with the adventure and intrigue she was desperately looking for.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Thanks to the lovely Jenny at Neverland Blog Tours, I’ve been able to read some fantastic Regency romances and I’d say this one is my favourite so far. It balances intrigue with romance and is a little bit saucy to boot!
