Seduced by Pamela Britton is a story that revolves around two people, Lucian and Elizabeth. Lucian is hiding from a troubled past(it is said to have murdered his brother to gain the title of Duke). When Elizabeth first meets him, she strongly dislikes him and believes him to be a murderous rouge. Lucian, (who also is infamous for throwing wild parties and seducing young women), sees Elizabeth's feelings for him and trys to seduce her. Elizabeth is a kind and modest girl, but when a gossip of the court accidently stumbles apon Lucien trying to seduce Elizabeth, (which Elizabeth surley would have eventually stopped), her reputation will be ruined if Lucian does not marry her. Elizabeth starts out hating the arrangement, but when Lucian whisks her off to his Welsh castle, she begins to notice a more sensitive side to him. Lucian, who wishes to keep his rougish reputation, even with his wife, makes plans to teach Elizabeth how to seduce a man. The dialogue between the two is witty, but the ending fourth of the book lacked full discriptions. I got a slight bit annoyed with some of the characters, even Elizabeth, whom I thouroughly liked in the beggining half. The ending part is quite overly dramatic(which some readers like), and as I said before, some of the characters were very cheeky. Overall it is a ok read, and I recommend it if you go for the rohbust type of Regency-set book.
