My favorite kinds of romance novels are the ones where I fall effortlessly into the story because it feels real. Noelle Adams has written a story that I fell into within a few pages and that I didn’t want to leave. Etta and Harrison are two strong forces to be reckoned with and they left me breathless with their kisses.Release Date: October 14, 2013
Title: Seducing the Enemy
Series: The Damon Heirs #1
Author: Noelle Adams
Publisher: Entangled Indulgence
Available: Barnes and Noble | Kobo | iBookstore
From the Publisher: After being injured in a tragic accident as a child, Marietta Edwards has lived a sheltered life. Finally recovered, she wants to indulge in pleasures that are entirely new to her, so she begins by seducing a sexy, mysterious stranger. Only after their one-night stand does she learn their families have been embroiled in a fifteen-year legal battle and the man she’s given herself to is her worst enemy.
The heir to a vast fortune, Harrison Damon believes the unforgettable night he spent with Marietta in Monte Carlo is just a fling, an escape from his responsibilities. Then he discovers she is an Edwards—the family he despises most. He can’t quench his attraction for her, but he won’t let her use it against him. He won’t let her manipulate him to win money from his family. No matter how much he wants her, he won’t let her seduce him again.
I love it when I find a good romance. LOVE IT.
This one had me laughing from the very beginning – but in such a good way.
I was having a terrible, terrible day but then I picked up Seducing the Enemy.
Best. Decision. Ever.
It was funny. It was sweet. It was steamy. This is the best kind of romance read (when you’re not looking for a bodice-ripping cowboy, that is).
Etta was a strong, confident woman who, despite her past and limitations, knew what she wanted and went after it. She was polite, but not meek. She was kind, but not submissive. She was the kind of female protagonist that you rarely see in a romance novel (And to top it off – she was a virgin too. The kind of virgin who isn’t shy about her body or worried about “doing it wrong” – she just wanted to enjoy herself. Say whaaa?)
Harry was of the more predictable sort. Wealthy, attractive, and temperamental – he reacted first and asked questions later. In fact, it was his temper that gave the book a plot at all! But watching the two interact was fun. Etta put him in his place often and you could tell he just wasn’t used to that. The chemistry between them absolutely leapt off the pages; it sizzled.
I am looking forward to reading more from Noelle Adams if this is the kind of romance to be expected. There wasn’t anything about the story that I didn’t like or enjoy, and in fact – I’ll even read it again. I can see Etta and Harry becoming one of my new favorite couples.
