Beyond Seduction by Emma Holly

To avoid marriage, Merry Vance has concocted a sinfully scandalous scheme: to pose for Nicolas Craven, London's most sought-after artist. No man in his right mind would marry a woman who posed nude for this notorious rogue.

But Nicolas has his own plans for the fiesty young woman. And Merry has no idea how hot it can get in an artist's studio.

I think I might have enjoyed reading this had I not read Because You're Mine first. Basically, same plot.

Merry doesn't want to marry the guy her mom has picked out. Lavina (Merry's mom) wants Merry to accept Ernest's proposal. Why? Because she once had an affair with his father. Ernest's father is blacking mailing Lavina. Merry decided to pose nude for Nick Craven.

She gives him a fake name and lives with him in his house. In between sketches and painting, he shows her passion she's never experienced.

Of course, Merry's true identity is revealed. We learn Nick isn't a common painter, but a marquis yet to claim his title.

Really similar to Because You're Mine in my opinion. The scenes are hot and steamy. I like Merry and I feel sorry for her. Her mother has run off other suitors and spread rumors about Merry in hopes of driving Merry to Ernest. When at the end, Merry's father always knew about the affair.

Decent read but I like Beyond Innocence more. Yes, I know my review sucked for that book. I had just returned from Vegas so my brain was still mush.

Grade: C.

Because You're Mine by who? Lisa Kleypas? Hmmm, I haven't read either book but this sounds pretty good, the storyline anyway...I want to read it, either this or Bcause You're Mine.

Good review sweetie, good stuff.

Read this one first Dylan and see what you think. I read this one (Izzy actually has my book) and I haven't read the LK and I loved this one. So give it a try.

I read this awhile ago ... I thought they were ok- better than what I've read of her contemps. (Although admittedly I only read one!)

I'd probably give a high C too ...

"Beyond Innocence" was the first Emma Holly book I read and I liked it a lot more than this one. I don't know, I guess I just dug the whole innocent side of Florence, and how Edward was so attracted to her. It was a very hot story too, for being a historical. At least that's what I thought at the time LOL.
