The lady apparently tumbling down the cover tends to make you think you have the book upside down!However having read the first story I was keen to uncover the mystery of Damaris who was obviously a lady with secrets.The book did not quite live up to the promise and I found the character of both hero and heroine rather changed and changeable after their introduction in A Winter Scandal,and a tad unlikely at times.Still the ending was very satisfying and I am looking forward to the last of the trilogy.

Enough substance for a novella... 21 Jun. 2012
By OLT - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
...but not enough for a full-length novel. I was kinda tricked into reading this by the fact that I liked the first book in this new Camp series, A Winter Scandal (Legend of St. Dwynwen), and two characters we met in that book are the H and h of this one. Now, if you haven't read the first book, you can still read this one, but, really, why bother? That "Legend of St. Dwynwen", which supposedly ties this series together, doesn't make the stories fall outside the Candace Camp Generic Romance Formula box.

Hero Alec Stafford, the Earl of Rawden, was the estranged friend of Gabriel, the hero of Book One. They were on the outs because Gabriel believed Alec had had something to do with the disappearance and death of Gabriel's sister. Well, that all got cleared up in the first book and that's also where Alec meets Damaris Howard, mysterious widow (and friend of Thea, heroine of Book One) living in the neighborhood.

So now that Thea and Gabriel are happily married, it's time for Alec's story. His romance will obviously involve lovely Damaris but that's all I should really say about the plot because it's such a been-there/done-that one that you should go into the book without knowing anything. Perhaps there will be something there to surprise you. (One can hope. Nothing surprised me but I'm old and have read way too many HRs over the years.)

Not even the characters pleased me. They're OK people but much blander than I had expected from the reading of Book One. Also we spend way too much time inside their heads and, unfortunately, their thoughts don't seem much more complex than those of your average family pet, except that instead of obsessing about walks and kibbles and bits, these two spend all their time thinking lusty thoughts and agonizing over that "love" thing (Is it love, is it love, is it love, is it love that I'm feeling?) and where their relationship will go. You know, how could they possibly marry? There's some familiar-to-HR baggage in the hero's past and a dirty secret in the heroine's which may doom them to unhappiness.

Well, if you care and if you like Candace Camp, read the book. I'd say don't buy it, however. Borrow it from a friend (whom we pity for having spent her money, so maybe treat her to lunch or at least a Starbucks coffee) or get it from the library.

BTW, Book Three of the series, which I can't find a link to here but is entitled THE MARRYING SEASON and will be out Spring 2013, features Genevieve, Alec's younger sister. She's unpleasant, snotty, snobby and unfriendly in Alec's story so...

A Steamy Summer 25 Jun. 2012
By Pcleo1794 - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm not sure why other readers are already bashing this novel. I'm not sure what they were expecting. I've read pretty much all of Candace Camp and I can't see why they find fault with this latest edition.

I always feel like Camp has a way of making the reader like the hero and heroine. And this novel is no exception. I liked both Alec and Damaris. The only issue I had was, what made Alec decide to pursue Damaris? He seemed to be on the fence, but then jumped right into it. Either way, I still loved their chemistry.

Though I am a little worried about the next novel in the series, involving Alec's sister. She is not a likable character, so I hope Camp can change my mind.

Why oh Why? 24 Jun. 2012
By Violet - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Why do I still buy Candace Camp's books? I guess I am hoping to see some of the great writing of yesteryear. This book is terrible - I wish I had my money back - and this time I will refuse to buy the last book in the series. Convoluted story, but especially bad characters - I cared for no one in this book. Candace, please, just one more good story like you used to write, please no more of this junk.

Exciting follow up 20 Aug. 2012
By IrishRose - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
A Summer Seduction was an exciting and heartwarming sequel to A Winter Scandal. I enjoyed finally learning the backstory on Damaris and Alec. There was also a pretty interesting plot twist revealed toward the end that I didnt quite see coming. I will probably pre order #3 The Marrying Season.

Score! 30 July 2012
By J. H. Majeran - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've read several Camp books and I find that she is either a hit or total miss with me. When her stories are more character driven and less plot driven I enjoy them so much more. When she infuses more romance and doesn't spend so much time bogging the story down by a host of other characters that are NOT the hero and heroine, I don't enjoy the books so much.

I am happy to say that this book had all the elements I enjoy in a romance novel. There was a story, there was the hero and heroine connecting, there was sweet romance and hot scenes and the plot kept moving forward.

I also enjoyed the predecessor to this book, A Winter Scandal, for the same reasons. I do not think Camps quality of work is going down, I think she is getting better.
