Product Description

About the Author

With over a million books in print, Pamela Britton likes to call herself the best known author nobody's ever heard of. Of course, that's begun to change thanks to a certain licensing agreement with that little racing organization known as NASCAR. But before the glitz and glamour of NASCAR, Pamela wrote books that were frequently voted the best of the best by The Detroit Free Press, Barnes & Noble (two years in a row) and RT BOOKclub Magazine.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars ... 4 Mar. 2011
By T. Lee - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
At first this book was a bit boring and I was so afraid I was going to end up tossing it in my 'Sell/Give away' pile. But it got very intense and I started really getting into it. One reason I knocked off a star was because Britton seemed obsessed with the details of rooms and houses and stuff like that, which gets annoying to the point of skipping paragraphs. Also, she doesn't have such a great sense of a humor. The jokes she tried to write were never placed at appropriate times. About two-thirds through the book I was really enjoying it and didn't want to put it down. It's an emotional story, which I've come to love about her books. They're always tense and dramatic, but just enough. The only other thing that I didn't like was at the end when she suddenly started referring to the heroine as Beth. She'd always been referred to as Elizabeth, so I had no idea who she was talking about for a few pages.

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read but the title is misleading 10 Jun. 2003
By J. Mullally - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This was not a bad book, though I found the humor and the parenthetical sentences, and the authorial stance with the whole first chapter introducing the hero and heroine in a very laboured manner, very off putting.
The main problem with the book is that Elizabeth is never seduced at all. A couple of moderately warm scenes and 'a first time together scene' worthy of only the worst in 'romance' are totally forgettable. Tying up virgins and abandoning them without a word of explanation is really not the way to their heart. There isn't enough heat between them to sustain these scenes. A romance is the hero and heroine falling in love, not arguing continually and talking about nothing but sex (which they never do!)
Lucien is also completely inconsistent at times and there are big gaps in the story re the pirates and the death of his brother. Our heroine is a worthy match for him, but Elizabeth is apt to be far too changeable at times.
The comedy is clever and witty one minute, downright vulgar the next. This would have been a much better book without it on the whole; after what Lucien has been through the brooding hero in the ruined castle is more consistent than the man who decides to ruin her reputation at a ball because he is bored, and ends up having to marry her to save both their reputations. Witty repartee is one thing, challenges to seduce the servants (which she does go through with) and detailed descriptions of male anatomy quite another. not to mention deliberately embarrassing each other in public all the time because they have so little respect for one another, especially at their own wedding.
The whole of the book is littered with grammar and punctuation errors, making the whole seem even more slap dash. Ms. Britton writes with verve but she loses sight of what she is writing and the style and tone swings are far too glaring to make this a smooth easy read. She has some interesting and sexy characters and does not need to try so hard to make them so with feathers and powdered sugar and bananas. It just doesn't work. And has been done far better elsewhere, lots of times before.
One final point-most of the action takes place over 2 days on their honeymoon-all of her anguish and love is just not believable given the extent to which she and he hardly know each other.
Having said that I really like Lucien despite the flaws in the writing and his character, though the whole is he a rake or not was really not handled very well or clearly at all. I would love to have seen some real intimacy between them in the epilogue. On the whole, an entertaining read, but I hope the next book will be a lot better.

3.0 out of 5 stars I love you, I hate you-romance which gets a bit tiresome 6 Oct. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The story actually has a very promising beginning: Headstrong beauty with plans to marry only for love meets dangerous rogue, rumoured to have shot his heir for a dukedom. They dislike each other passionately at first sight. Yet because of a compromising situation the duke is forced to marry Elizabeth. She refuses to bed him, though and of course the duke rises to the challenge and tries to seduce her. Quite conventional and somewhat hackneyed but I admit I love that plot!
Elizabeth make a compelling heroine with enough spine and flaws to make her interesting. Lucien is the classic bad boy, but not of the unredeemable sort. He's never abusive to Elizabeth or too manipulative.
However the couple (at least for my taste) needs much too long to get closer together and to develop sweeter feelings beyond mere sexual attraction and an initial, reluctant infatuation. After such a long time of patient waiting for some romantic and loving interaction (It's supposed to be a romance after all!) their first actual intimate encounter was quite disappointing for me, too loveless, violent and frantic to make up for the lack of romantic interaction. Instead of armorous talk the hero even curses the heroine in between (the most unrealistic deflowering scene I ever read-even considering that it takes place in a romance which are per se unrealistic in that respect!)
And even after that unromantic coupling there's not much sweet and romantic love to be found to make up for it and the end is somewhat rushed.
Only worth your time if you love bickering couples who are at cross purpose most of the time, with a tortured hero constantly distrusting his feelings, compulsively trying to avoid emotional and physical intimacy with the heroine most of the time .
It might be a good romance for people who love angsty romances but after my high expectations at the beginning it was a letdown for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindred souls succomb to the chemistry of fire meets fire! 21 Aug. 2004
By Susan St.Thomas - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The setting is Regency London, turn of the 19th century. The heroine is a confident, intelligent beauty, aware of who she is and who she isn't, what she wants and whom she never wants to set eyes on again. The hero is a rogue, rumored to have shot his brother for a dukedom. Maligned from a young age, and cursed to loose all that he loves, he accepts his title of notorious rake. It is rumored to love him is to die.

Elizabeth wants nothing to do with him and tries to keep away. Naturally he is drawn to the dark haired, beautiful outcast, the one woman who is strong enough to publicly distain him. Initially, she's a challenge, something to fill his empty life. Truthfully, he cannot forget the chemistry of their first encounter. He senses a kindred soul, and he couldn't be more correct.

Lucien is the rake we all love to read about and empathize, and Elizabeth is his mirror image, both strong of heart and spirit. She struggles with this alchemy all the way to the altar, and their marriage becomes a scintillating battle. I really enjoyed the bickering because she was always so serious, and he toyed with her thinking he was the grand seducer. Being a woman of enormous pride, she finally submits only when imprisoned by passion and in turn, seduces him. Now Elizabeth must face her passion just as Lucien is taken from her. As strongly as she fought the ties that bound them together, now she must loose everything to save him from his past and himself.

I really enjoyed this story. The strength of this book was the well-written dialogue. The story isn't anything complicated, but it's worth the time to read because the characters are so honest and matched. Instead of the chemistry of opposites attracting, this one is fire meets fire. The book was one I couldn't put down and lingered long after I was finished! Ms. Britton is truly a wonderful writer. Do yourself a favor and become Seduced!

5.0 out of 5 stars An emotional roller coaster -- and just as thrilling 3 May 2004
By S. Reader - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Love it or hate it? I mostly loved it. Yes, there were times that the sex jokes got stale and occasions when the timing was questionable...but they never detracted from the story for me. Moreover, the characterizations and back stories so enchanted me that I couldn't care less about any minor faults. Indeed, this book isn't really about sexual seduction, as some reviewers seem to think. It's about the seduction of the heart -- a vastly different, and more noble, thing altogether.
Lucien is a very complex character, contrary to first impressions. In fact, Elizabeth, once she's around him on a regular basis, quickly begins to see through his masks. Elizabeth is a very strong heroine who has had to hold her head up high throughout her life due to circumstances beyond her control; yet she makes every effort to control their effects on her. Until Lucien unwittingly causes it all to crumble around her. Truly, she is the stronger member of this couple, but she teaches him a great deal about strength of character. For deep down inside, it is only guilt that keeps him from being the marvelous man his tenants adore. How each of them come to see the inner person -- and themselves -- especially Lucien's growth as a person -- is the heart of this book.
The humor runs from bawdy to satirical and caused me to laugh out loud on several occasions. Before the book's end, however, I often had to fight to read the page through tear-blurred eyes. The emotional anguish is on the money, and is the pin on which the whole book turns. It is marvelously done. The last three chapters (not the epilogue) are some of the most heart-wrenching scenes I've ever read; beautifully done.
Perhaps not quite 5 stars, but certainly more than 4... at the end, I didn't care about lack of perfection; I was too caught up in the story, the characters, and the how-on-earth-can-it-possibly-have-a-happy-ending tension. A thoroughly satisfying read!
