ARC Review: Misadventures in Seduction by Robyn DeHart

I think what made this book a three instead of a four is the fact that it was so short. It seemed rushed and forced and was over way too quickly. I really enjoyed it, it was a great story I just wish it could have been more and played with the sexual tension a bit more and the whole spy mystery. I always enjoy Robyn DeHart books they are well written and keep my attention, I just wish there was more to this story to emotionally tie me into the story and the characters.

Prudence Hixby was left in charge of all five of her siblings and will risk everything to take care of them. When Charles, the eldest boy and heir, decides that it is his duty to join the war effort. Prudence is scared that she will lose him so she submits to the advances of an old friend at a country house party only she walks in to the wrong room and sleeps with a the wrong man. Harrison Carlisle the Duke of Sutcliffe was then man in the wrong room. He found out why the one woman he has never allowed himself to feel feelings for snuck into his room and seduced him, did it to protect her brother. Harrison feels guilty that her plan backfired and her brother was being shipped to France so he recruits him for his spy network.

Charles Hixby died, and Prudence blames Harrison for his death. She confronts Harrison about it but of course picks a bad time to visit him. The person trying to frame Harrison as a traitor breaks into his house and causes Harrison to go into hiding taking Prudence and her siblings with him. With the help of Prudence and her close relationship with her brother they find out the needed information from his belongings to track down the real traitor. Prudence must pretend to be Harrison’s mistress which leads to some steamy lovin’ and the truth coming out. I really wish there was more to the story but other than that it was a good read.
