With the scandalous nature of her birth to live down, Isabella Fairmont dreams of a proper marriage—even if a passionless one. She saves her deepest desires for the novel she dares to pen, wherein a handsome lord with dark powers seduces her. But then her courtship with an appropriate suitor is threatened by the sudden attentions of the reclusive Earl of Black… whose pale blue eyes and brooding sensuality are exactly as she described in her book.

Publisher's Summary

With the scandalous nature of her birth to live down, Isabella Fairmont dreams of a proper marriage—even if a passionless one. She saves her deepest desires for the novel she dares to pen, wherein a handsome lord with dark powers seduces her. But then her courtship with an appropriate suitor is threatened by the sudden attentions of the reclusive Earl of Black… whose pale blue eyes and brooding sensuality are exactly as she described in her book.

Isabella tries to resist the mysterious Earl. Yet as he pursues her, with inexplicable knowledge of her past and kisses that consume her, Isabella fears she will succumb.

If only the earl could tell Isabella the truth. With very real, and treacherous, thieves endangering her life, Black will need to protect Isabella from the very people she trusts the most.

    "Good introduction to the Brethren Guardians"

    Read from July 19, 2012 to July 30, 2012 and from June 11, 2013 to June 19, 2013

    4.25 stars

    While Featherstone needs a better editor to eliminate repetitive words/phrases as well as those that don't quite make sense, she's an excellent storyteller, and this was a fabulous introduction to her--and to the world of the Brethren Guardians. Such a good introduction, in fact, that I immediately downloaded the second book!

    June 2013: Re-Listen Update
    I enjoyed this book almost as much the second time around as the first. Featherstone's need for a better editor was much more noticeable this time around, but at least this time her tendency to repeat a word multiple times in a sentence/paragraph amused rather than annoyed me. Narrator Helen Stern is fantastic, especially giving different accents and tones to help differentiate the characters. Overall, still a 4 star book for the second time around.

    Story
    "Story: ok, Narration: not so much"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I listened to Pride and Passion by the same author before listening to this story and thought it was good. When I purchased this this one I didn't realize it was a different narrator. What a huge difference it made. Even though I really want to know how this ends, I may just need to pick up a copy on my kindle because I can't trudge through this anymore.

    Story
    "A bit of a twist in a historical romance."
    Would you listen to Seduction & Scandal again? Why?

    Some day I will listen to it again. In a year or two.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Seduction & Scandal?

    I don't have one memorable moment. This is because the flow of the story was so smooth. One memorable moment slipped into another.


    Which character – as performed by Helen Stern – was your favorite?

    I enjoyed both the main female and male main characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was an enjoyable read for relaxing.


    Any additional comments?

    I would read more from this author.

    Story
    "Interesting Novel"

    Seduction & Scandal is the first book in this series. It's not as good as the second one, but is still pretty good. If you are listening to the beginning of this novel and think to yourself, "Wow, this is really weird," don't worry about it. That's just the intro, and is explained pretty quickly. There is a piece of jewelry that plays a really important role in this story--sort of like a romanticized Lord of the Rings. There is a paranormal aspect to this series that initially comes off as strange. Nonetheless, the story of Isabella and Lord Black is an intriguing one. They both wrestle with their past and finding a way to not let that past get in the way of their relationship.

    This story was too much on the darkside for me but the performance was good.
