The Rules of Seduction by Madeline Hunter

Setting-Regency Period


Dangerous. Sensual. Handsome as sin. Meet Hayden Rothwell, the shamelessly erotic hero of The Rules of Seduction and author Madeline Hunter’s most irresistible alpha male yet: a man of extraordinary passion and power, a man who can bring out the seductress in any woman.…

He enters her home without warning or invitation–a stranger of shadowy motives and commanding sensuality. Within hours, Alexia Welbourne is penniless, without any hope of marriage. Until Hayden Rothwell takes her to bed. When one impulsive act of passion forces Alexia to marry the very man who has ruined her, Hayden’s seduction of Alexia is nearly complete. What Alexia doesn’t know is that her irresistible new husband is driven by a secret purpose–and a debt of honor he will risk everything to repay. Alexia is the wild card. Reluctant to give up their nightly pleasures, Hayden must find a way to keep Alexia by his side…only to be utterly, thoroughly seduced by a woman who is now playing by her own rules.

This book was very sweet and romantic, although I did feel that something was lacking. It was different from alot of romances in that this couple did not seem so consumed by lust and passion that they did little else–you could tell they geniunely cared for one another. It was also clear that they were perfectly suited for one another and that only made it sweeter when they fell in love, however I felt that their relationship could have been better developed. I enjoyed watching them fall in love. The added mystery subplot was pretty interesting as well and it was another thing that distinguished this romance from others. All in all, a well-written, touching romance!


Plot Rating-3/5



Final Verdict-Worth a read, but could have been better
