A Season Of Seduction is the third book in the James Family series. After hearing so many good things about Jennifer Haymore, I saw this book at the library and just knew I had to try her out, and see what I thought of her, especially since it was Christmas themed in a way. I found that I just fell in love with this book, and everything about it. Its one of those you aren’t sure you will enjoy after reading the synopsis, but give it a try and are blown away by how wonderfully written it is. From the first to the last page I was spellbound by this beautiful story of love, trust and sacrifice. I just loved both Rebecca and Jack. Jack is the kind of hero you just want for yourself. He is doing something he hates doing, but you can see he starts to really care for Rebecca even though he is after her money…..Rebecca has suffered a lot in her life, and is fully devoted to her family but then she falls in love and it turns out both of them learn much about trust, and I just loved the ending… definitely a tearjerker. Overall a powerful and sensual novel that will sweep you off your feet and into the horizon!!! A ENTHRALLING TALE TO TREASURE!!!!
