Review: A hint of Seduction - Amelia Grey

His horse isn't the only thing she's going to steal... John Fines, the Fifth Earl of Chatwin, is racing his horse in Hyde Park when he almost runs down a beautiful and alluring young woman. Lady Catherine Reynolds doesn't have time to dally about with infatuations- she's on a quest to find her real father. And when John is mesmerized by her, she takes up the opportunity to steal his horse right from under him, leaving behind a trail of gossip. Everyone in the town believes that Catherine has come to London to find a husband, but what she really needs is an ally who can help her uncover the truth. The dashing Lord Chatwin would have been the perfect gentleman to help her, if only she hadn't stolen his horse... and his heart.

My thoughts:
I really do enjoy Amelia Grey's books, they are just sweeter somehow. And in this book the heroine did something shocking, she did not do the whole "let's not tell the truth just yet dance" when it came to that later in the book. Finally, a heroine with her head on her shoulder.

Catherine was a nice and innocent heroine. Perfectly likable. While John is of course a bit of a rake who belonged to the terrible threesome, the men who would not marry (and then they all did ;). It's not love at first sights, it's like, it's lust, it's realization.

While Catherine's sister tried to marry her off, she tried to find her real father. So there is that, and of course the mmm does not Earl Chatwin look mighty fine today ;)

Conclusion:
Sweet, adorable and just light light light. This is how I like HR. I can close the book with a smile on my lips.

    YES! You have no idea how happy that makes me! Nothing causes me more stress when reading than a character who keeps something they shouldn't to themselves. So glad that's not the case here:)

  14. I also like HR that leaves you with a smile on your lips. It doesn't always have to be intense or overly emotional, sometimes light is good. Glad you had fun with this one!
