Book Description

Jun 2004 Wheeler Large Print Book Series
To seduce an English lady,
a gentleman must always remember to...

Gaze longingly into her eyes while declaring her beauty...

Colonel Colin Mandland has wealth, power...everything but a bride. But although there is no mistress of his newly purchased manor, Maiden Hill, there is certainly a resident maiden: Lady Rosalyn Wellborne, a stubborn beauty who steadfastly refuses to leave the place she has always called home.

Hold her hand just a fraction longer than necessary...

Tantalizing Rosalyn proves to be far more difficult than any enemy he’s ever met on the battlefield. She attacks by declaring Colin an upstart who is unfit for local society. He shockingly counters by offering for her hand in marriage -- and she surprisingly accepts.

Or, when all else fails, conquer her.

Although this genteel lady has vowed never to succumb to unbridled passion, she quickly learns that theirs will be no marriage in-name-only, but rather a slow, sensuous and alarmingly effective seduction...that turns her world upside down.

5.0 out of 5 stars LIGHT READ. FEEL GOOD ENDING... 4 Jun 2004
By Brenda - Published on
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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!

1.0 out of 5 stars RIDICULOUS. 29 April 2006
By A Mother and Avid Reader - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I hate to write such a rude review, but this book was absurd. The hero was such a baby...crying about his lost Commons seat, crying about his lack of knighthood, crying about his family guilt, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. Give me the strong, silent type any day over this emotional mess of a man.

The heroine had great, very real issues that I thought were nicely addressed. However, her "does he love me or not?" got really old, really fast.

The storyline with the fox was ABSURD. I could not have cared less about that fox and I cannot believe so much of the book was devoted to it. Between that and that stupid oratory contest, I just skimmed the last part of the book. It was so ridiculous, I just couldn't bring myself to finish it.

Definitely DO NOT recommend this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars 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.
