Review by: Tiger Lily

Pamela Singer is rumored to have built a career out of loving and then leaving rich men, but not before she gets her hands on a good chunk of their change first. Enter Dylan Pierce, the stepbrother of one of the men in her wake. Dylan blames Pamela for his stepbrother's fall from the family's graces.

Determined to punish her for her crimes, Dylan is deeply pleased when he realizes that Pamela is falling in love with him. The only problem: he's falling in love with her, too.

She’s a painting conservator; he’s a vice president for a prestigious hotel group. She’s got a secret and he’s dying to find out what it is. What will happen when he finds out that she’s irresistible? Dylan Pierce will fall under the spell of The Seductress.

I enjoyed Ms. Ashbury’s work. This story grabbed my attention from page one and didn’t let go until the fantastic ending! Although it was a bit difficult to keep some of the secondary characters straight, it didn’t bog down the story one bit. I found Pamela’s character easy to relate to. We all have parts of us that we don’t want to show the world because we don’t understand them ourselves. I also enjoyed Dylan’s willingness to change his mind once his alliances were challenged.

Ms. Ashbury’s descriptions of downtown Philadelphia made me feel like I was truly there. I also enjoyed watching the relationship develop between Dylan and Pamela. It was like watching two close friends finally realize they were meant to be together.

If you like a saucy romance with a healthy does of action and adventure, then grab a copy of The Seductress. I give this novel a hearty 4 ½ Cherries!

Great review, I've never read a story set in Philly.
