Format: Mass Market Paperback
Colonel Colin Mandland has lead men in to battle and earned their loyalty, so how hard could it be to persuade the occupant of the Mansion he just bought to leave?
Lady Rosalyn occupies Maiden Hill. Those living in the Valley fear her and do what ever she says, just to keep the peace.
Absolutely engaging and truly delightful, _The Seduction of an English Lady_ is the kind of romance that leads its readers into a relationship, but doesn't leave them dredging through bickering and misunderstandings. From page one, emotions are stirred and characters evolve. The secondary characters are just as important to the storyline as Colin and Rosalyn. It's through them the couple learns the truth about themselves and each other. It's a quick, light read with a feel good ending. The kind I highly recommend.

A book that will have you hooked! 26 Jan. 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was my first Cathy Maxwell read...something I just grabbed while in the store and definitely didn't have high expectations about. How wrong I was! This book had me hooked! I finished it in record time and was actually disappointed when it ended. I loved the characters, the romance and the story. I found it was different than a lot of the books I've been reading, and rather refreshing. Although the female character was independent and proud, she was not unreachable until the end. This book is a definite must read!

Lovely Regency Romance 11 Mar. 2004
By M. Rondeau - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Setting - Lancashire, England 1816 ---- Lady Roslyn, resided at Maiden Hill along with a small staff and her companion Covey. Since coming to the area she had, as the daughter of an earl, though impoverished, established herself as the driving force behind the country gentry's social and charitable works. Suddenly she found that her cousin George had sold Maiden Hill out from under her to satisfy his gambling debts. The new owner, war hero, Colonel Colin Mandland, local boy made good, had come to take possession of the property. Rosalyn, shocked and furious, took the Colonel's deed, after slamming the door in his face, and refused to allow him to enter. She ran to the reigning head of the local aristocracy, Lord Loftus, to see if they could do anything to help her. Legally, there was nothing to be done but all her friends thought that a quick solution would be for the two to marry. Lord Loftus even sweetened the pot for the colonel by offering him a seat in the House of Commons, a post Colin secretly coveted.
Naturally, Lady Roslyn's automatic reaction (even though Colin is the most handsome man she's ever been attracted to) is to refuse, and so begins Colin's battle plan to court and seduce the lady. Until the first kiss, neither really wanted the other but both saw that the 'marriage of convenience' might gain them each something they did want. What they both soon discovered though was that what they both 'thought' they wanted would be eclipsed by what they both needed and love and passion was an equation that would surprise them both with a sweet and enduring intensity.
I have been a long time fan of this author and 'The Seduction of an English Lady' proves again that anyone looking for a quality Regency romance will find it easily when penned by Cathy Maxwell. Our lead protagonists are a delight even though the premise of neither wanting the other is an often-used scenario with pride and lack of communication being at the root of the problem. Readers will be delighted with the liberally sprinkled cast of well-developed secondary characters, both human and animal, that give this romance an added spark of humor and find a deep satisfaction in the sensual, lovely and deeply caring romantic love story. --- Submitted by Marilyn, Official Reviewer for [...] ---

I grabbed this book at the store one day and really didn't expect it to be anything too spectacular, but I was wrong! From the first chapter, I was intrigued, and I hated putting it down. I loved each character, and found when the book ended, I was disappointed it was over! Definitely a great read with both romance, and a nice story.

fine Regency romance 31 Dec. 2003
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1816 in the heart of England, war hero Colonel Colin Mandland proves to Lady Rosalyn that her cousin sold the home she has lived in for the past few years to him. Separately both run off to see the top local aristocrat in the area, Lord Loftus, to plead their case. Loftus sends for solicitor Shellsworth who reads the deed and states that Colin owns the property. Fearing time away from his favorite pastime hunting if Rosalyn has to leave because Loftus knows he will have to then escort his wife to London. By bringing class to events in the area, Rosalyn has enabled Loftus to stay home and hunt. He proposes that Colin and Rosalyn marry. To sweeten the pot, he offers a seat in the Commons to Colin; this angers the solicitor. However, it becomes moot as Rosalyn says no.
Encouraged by Loftus and the support of his brother the vicar, Colin begins courting the lady who makes it clear that his blood lines are beneath hers. Still she cannot deny at least to herself that his kisses leave her desiring more. Surprisingly Colin finds that his goal of knighthood that he feels he earned during the Napoleonic War is no longer as important as winning the hand of the woman he now loves.
THE SEDUCTION OF AN ENGLISH LADY is a fine Regency romance that fans will be grateful for due to a strong cast though some important secondary players seem too stereotyped. The lead couple is a delight as neither wanted the other until that first kiss, but neither will retreat from that initial stance as pride stands in the way of love. Readers will have a good time following Colin's pragmatic battlefield seduction that turns into a shared deep need for one another.
