To Seduce a Lady’s Heart by Ingrid Hahn
Jeremy spent most of his life trying to repay the debts of his dead uncle. But just because he was almost done doesn’t mean he was free to live life. There was no time for life and absolutely no love.
Eliza was prepared to do anything to save her cousin from marrying a man she wasn’t in love with. Even if that included taking her place and lying to the man with no heart.
A book of lies, lust, and maybe even love.
Its not important to care how everyone thinks of you but how you think of yourself.
The two main characters had a hard time with communication. They would talk to each other but about the real issues and thoughts running through their minds. Eliza and Jeremy talked around each other. There was also a battle that I think could have been played up more. The author’s over use of the word ‘My Lord” took away from the novel.
The nervousness of both leads really calmed down all the turmoil in the book. Showing that Jeremy was flawed even though he tried to look perfect really brought out a new dimension. Eliza was so strong everything she had been through she was still able to hold her own against her mother and others. She was also very set in her ways and the past had taught her to do so.
The book was lovely from start to end. There is nothing I love more than books from the 19th century. This book ticked off all the tragic aspects of love during that time period. Eliza was a great lead and I loved Jeremy’s transformation. My favorite part of the book was Daisy the he she dog. Pet companions are a perfect touch. I gave the book 3.5/5 stars. There were somethings missing for me that I just can’t place. I think its because I wasn’t wrapped up in the story. I would suggest this for anyone who wants to begin reading about this time period.
