    Lord Griffin Westcott English earl and advisor to Edward I finds himself in the unenviable position of delivering a message to Andrew de Moray one of the leaders of the Scottish rebellion under William Wallace What makes the position especially unenviable is that Griffin while he is secretly working with the Scots well that’s a secret and at the moment he’s standing in a room packed with half drunk very angry Scots who think he’s Longshanks’ toady He’s using all his diplomatic skills to keep it cool even tho the missive he has to deliver is itself incendiary Lady Rois I am not entirely sure how one pronounces this name—should it rhyme with Joyce or Lois? I ended up thinking Joyce cuz “Lois” sounded sort of like a ham actor doing a bad Asian accent Drummond is the daughter of the Earl of Brom Lord Brom is a Scot who not long ago swore fealty to Edward but who now sits in this room with the rebels Rois worries that if Griffin sees her father here he’ll surely inform King Edward Her da would lose his lands his title and most likely his lifeDesperate to keep the Sassenach from noticing her father Rois decides to create a distraction—she rushes up to him and very publicly accuses him of trifling with her and leaving her pregnant With tension spinning out of control Griffin has only a second to defuse the situation so he offers marriage Surely this dimwit—whom he’s never seen before—will admit she’s lying rather than actually marry a hated Englishman Rois realizes she's caught in her own trap but she’s not one to back down so she accepts his proposal And in Scotland that’s all it takes They’re married Both of them reckon that her da will sort it all out and get them an annulment But Lord Brom has other ideas He knows Griff and trusts him—and he doesn’t trust Lochlan as far as he can throw the man AND he’s about to go to war with Wallace against the vastly superior English forces He'd like to see his daughter protected if it comes to it So married they are and married they’ll stayGriff can’t really fight on either side in the upcoming war without either going against the cause he cherishes or “outing” himself as a traitor when he’s much useful as a spy so he agrees to keep Rois safe While William’s forces head off to ambush the Sassenachs at Stirling Bridge he takes her away from it all He still reckons that once the battle’s over Lord Brom will get them that annulment at least so long as Rois is still a virgin Treachery politics magic rocks fairy grandmothers and oh yeah unreleased sexual tension is what drives the story for the rest of the book This one isn’t uite as compelling as I remember the first books in the series being but it’s a decent read While Cosby weaves the story around historical events and figures I’m not sure the culture of the day was uite right for example if this gal told a roomful of Scottish nobles she was seduced and pregnant why on earth would either she or Griffin think Lord Brom would annul the handfast? On the other hand Cosby did come up with a reasonable explanation why history records that deMoray was killed at Stirling Bridge and yet also indicates he was alive after And while the battle itself takes place offstage darnit Beverley does get across the reason that battle went pear shaped for the English Hugh de Cressingham a historically vile English toady who was brutal to the Scots and who appears as a villain in the previous book died at Stirling Bridge Indeed the defeat of the superior English forces is attributed in large part to his lousy strategic advice Perhaps because it shows a side of William Wallace that was vicious and creepy we don’t get the whole storyI’ll give this 35 stars

    When Scottish Lady Rois Drummond believes her father The Earl of Brom is about to be accused of treason to the Englishman Sir Griffin Wescott she steps forward and accuses Griffin of compromising her to deflect from the politics What Rois doesn't think will happen ultimately happens when Griffin offers for her hand knowing she is a liar and hoping she will speak the truth before the vows Hmmmm and the plot thickens when Rois sticks her her lie and ends up Griffin's wifeRois goes into the marriage believing the worst about her new English husband but soon realizes that her preconceptions were wrong Sir Griffin not only is an honorable man but he may just be the love of her life Shame that it is that Rois simply can't tell the truth to her husband but Griffin has secrets of his own The politics of the time lead to a story filled with suspense the romance is is passionate and real Rois comes off as impetuous and immature at first but evolves into a confident and honorable heroine Griffin is the dream hero from the first page He of course has his issues but her always treats his woman with respect and understanding even when he know she isn't forthcoming with himHis Seduction is the 5th book in the epic MacGruder series With each and every story Diana Cosby just keeps getting better and better Her characters come alive with her story telling and the reader becomes attached to each and every one I highly recommend His Seduction as well as any other book in the MacGruder series KIMBERLY4 Stars Brilliant

    A lovely romance with two people caught in the middle of a battle between countries His Seduction was a wonderful highland romance Great readRois was a strong heroine though her tendency to impulsiveness tended to get her into a lot of trouble I liked her and the fact that she didn't back down from anything But her aforementioned impulsiveness made me want to shake her She would get into her head to do something completely disregarding that is was a stupidly dangerous thing to do Then when trouble inevitably came someone read Griffin would have to get her out But I didn't mind too much because she did eventually learn from her mistakes and admitted to them So I ended up liking her characterGriffin was also a great character He was a perfect hero Clever determined sweet and always conscious of what was right I really liked himThe romance was well done I appreciated that it developed realistically beginning with Rois trusting Griffin despite her perception of him as an enemy They definitely had some sparks flying and they were hot I thought they were a lovely coupleThe plot moved uickly I was hooked the entire way through There was a surprise betrayal at the end that I never saw coming And the ending was perfectHis Seduction was a lovely read If you're looking for a wonderful highland romance this is your book Thanks to Netgalley and Kensington Books Zebra for a copy

    Historically not a bad read but I think because its the fifth in a series and I haven't read any of them I was a bit confused it can be read as stand alone but there wasn't enough introduction and background to build from You kinda meet the characters from the previous books and its a bit overwhelming and I kept thinking that I wanted to go back and read their storiesGriffin's character is interesting it's presented uite well you feel his emotions and struggle and you understand him a littleWhere as Rois's character is the reason I'm giving this book a lower star rating We are told she is kind and intelligent that she is everything any man would want Yet I didn't see it she acted on impulse made lots of mistakes put them in danger and trouble many times I found myself judging her And I got tired of reading about her green eyes the color of Scotland's fieldsAnd I kinda don't like it when the two main characters are pushed into each other by other forces natural or supernatural It's so much stronger when in the end it's their own feelings and decisions that keep them together even if they made mistakes before they realize itOverall interesting historical read but the heroine was not portrayed well enough for me to enjoy it This review is for a free copy courtesy of Kensington Books via NetGalley
