Description

In New York Times bestselling author Jennifer McQuiston's enticing new Seduction Diaries entry, a mysterious journal may provide a potential spinster with instruction—or lead her to her heart's desire

Free-spirited Lucy Westmore isn't yet a spinster, although she fully intends to be. Fortunately, an eccentric aunt has left her both a diary detailing the secrets to spinsterhood and a cottage in Cornwall. Unfortunately, an insufferable marquess is angling for her prize! Turning Lord Thomas Branston down flat should be easy. So why does this man who won't take no for an answer make Lucy's body and soul sigh yes?

Thomas knows the real value of Heathmore Cottage, and he has no intention of letting some silly Society miss get her hands on it. He'll simply have to charm Lucy into selling. But the clever young woman he encounters, first in London, then en route to Cornwall, stands stubbornly on her own two (quite lovely) feet. And now, Thomas can think only of sweeping her off them.

      • content: Lana Weston's sparkling narration makes this second entry in McQuiston's Seduction Diaries shine. Lucy Westmore might not be a spinster yet, but she has every intention of becoming one. When her aunt bequeaths her a cottage in Cornwall, Lucy's solitary future seems assured. But her father sees the matter differently and tries to sell the cottage to Lord Branston, much to Lucy's dismay. Each character in the story has a distinct voice, with a proper accent befitting his or her station. All emotions, especially humor, are given their due, further enhancing the story. Highly recommended for fans of smart historical romance. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine

        October 15, 2015
        When a young woman inherits a ramshackle cottage from her spinster aunt, she's determined to use the house as her aunt did--to avoid an unhappy marriage. McQuiston (Diary of an Accidental Wallflower, 2015, etc.) returns with the second book in her Seduction Diaries series. Lucy Westmore is dreading her upcoming season on the London marriage mart. She views the custom as "an archaic process" that sells "young women of good breeding to the highest bidder," and she wants none of it. So when she receives a mysterious package from her recently deceased aunt, she's delighted to find the key to her aunt's cottage inside, along with a note explaining that Lucy is the new owner and a collection of her aunt's diaries. But Thomas, the Marquess of Branston, is already in talks with her father to buy the property without Lucy's consent. Lucy is determined to find out why Thomas wants it so much, since it's falling down and located in a remote corner of Cornwall. When she dashes off to Cornwall to investigate, she falls in love with the little town of Lizard Bay--and with Thomas, whom she still can't bring herself to trust. Meanwhile, ghosts in Thomas' past mean he can't tolerate London, which makes a future for the couple nearly impossible. Lucy herself finds the odd little community of Lizard Bay so welcoming that she thinks of never leaving, although her love for her family in London is calling her back. Lucy's feminist tendencies are refreshing, if somewhat surprising, given the Victorian ideas held by her parents. Thomas is a complicated and likable character, and the book has multiple threads of mystery that are not easily solved by the reader. An absorbing read.

        December 1, 2015
        In the latest installment in McQuiston's Seduction Diaries series, following Diary of an Accidental Wallflower (2015), Lucy Westmore is determined to avoid marriage and her upcoming season at any costs. When her eccentric spinster aunt leaves her a cottage in remote Lizard Bay, Lucy thinks she may have found her salvation. She, too, will be a spinster, but at least she will be in control of her life. Unfortunately, her father is already trying to sell the cottage to Lord Thomas Branston. Never one to let reality stand it her way, Lucy makes a spur-of-the-moment trip to see the cottage for herself. While there, she proves to be more than a flighty debutante and matches wits with Lord Branston in a most tantalizing manner. Her impulsive nature and his gentle ways will endear the pair to readers, who will be cheering as Lucy and Thomas learn to trust one another and stop fighting their attraction. Lizard Bay is host to charming characters that we can only hope we will meet again in the next book. For fans of historical romance with feisty, feminist female characters who have soft spots for hunky lords.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)
