My Thoughts 
Dark Seduction is the first installment in the Masters of Time series. I have recently discovered Brenda Joyce, and I just have loved reading this series so far. Its definitely my type of romance, especially since it mixes the historical aspects with time travel, and paranormal aspects in it. This is the second book that I have read in the series, and I just loved reading Malcolm and Claires story. Malcolm has very recently become a Master but is very tormented, and Claire needs protection for one of their most dangerous enemies is trying to capture her. So it a very thrilling tale, with romantic aspects, and a danger theme to the story that keeps you on edge with every page. Definitely a read you don’t want to miss out on !!!! SUCH A GREAT ONE!!! I LOVED IT!!!

My Favorite Quote 
“Aye” he said, lifting her to her feet and pulling her against his big, hard body ” This be what matters, ye an’ me. I love ye Claire, and I want ye t’be my wife”
