All Jasper wants is to find a lady who will put up with him long enough to wed so he can retreat to his life of debauchery--a life that keeps the haunting memories of his past at bay. Knowing that Jasper is under pressure to marry, Melisande Flemming grasps her fate with both hands and volunteers to wed him. Although Jasper is initially only interested in producing an heir, he soon becomes entranced by his wife--prim and proper by day, wanton by night-- and vows to learn her secrets.
Melissande, however, is determined to keep her husband at a distance. She has loved, and lost, before, and will do anything to keep him from learning her terrible weakness: she's secretly been in love with him for years. But to her chagrin, her husband pursues her, wooing her as if she were a paramour, not his lady wife.
As Melissande and Jasper embark on a passionate game of cat and mouse, secrets from the past begin to resurface Help Centre.

Jasper who had never really looked at her, never paid attention to her, not even after the wedding night — as made plain in a very poignant sequence where he presents her with earrings when her ears are not even pierced, starts to realize that he does want to know who she is.
Melisande on the other hand, who thinks knows everything about joyful, fun-loving, seducer Jasper, realizes that there are different layers to the man that hide his true self. The main drive of their love story as the plot progresses is for both of them to try and find out everything that there is to know about the other — without ever letting the other in.
Their fear that an open, vulnerable heart will bring misery is overturned when the fear of not having one another becomes even greater. But this is not by any means, all that there is to To Seduce a Sinner.
To Seduce a Sinner
A member of the 28th Regiment of Foot, a regiment who had been marching from their victory in Quebec, when they were ambushed and decimated by Indians. Very few survived, 8 were captured and taken prisoner to the Indian camp and tortured being belief.
Jasper is one of the 6 that survived. In book one of the series, Jasper learns from the hero of that other book who was another survivor that there was a traitor in their regiment, and the search for this man is what propels his character in To Seduce a Sinner. This is a perfect example of a romance novel with a secondary mystery plot that is not only interesting but also organic in the way that it drives the romance forward instead of being only an excuse for external conflict. Jasper is a man that truly is shaped by his past, who still suffers the consequences of what he went through in the colonies post traumatic stress disorder comes to mind and thinks his is only but a half-man who could never be loved in his totality by Melisande.
His reasons for not wanting her to come too near sounded reasonable and realistic and it is a great moment of heartwarming romance when Melisande accepts his past and his way to deal with it. As is the moment when he proclaims his love for her — aw-worthy. Specially when I am a fan of the ugly duckling story — the plain heroine who turns into a beauty in the eyes of the hero. I was equally gripped by the search of the traitor as I was by the interaction great lines of dialogue here between Jasper and Melisande. I have one small gripe with the book though — the sex scenes.

Elizabeth Hoyt writes scorching hot, bordering erotica but not quite, sex scenes that are not usual for historical novels at least the ones I read. I think they work really well but in this particular book I thought they were off the mark. I am on a reading slump and this is the first real sign that I am making my way out of it. Not a direct quote this time: there are two sequences that I really liked.
Because she is so closed-off, he expects he could find traces of her character in the things she keeps in her room but alas, there is nothing expect for the snuff box where she keeps her treasures which is not enough to tell him more about her. In a mirror sequence later in the book, Melisande does the same with not quite the same result.

Both sequences were rather poignant in showing the two characters trying to reach for each other secretly. The next book in the series, To Beguile a Beast is the story of Sir Alistair Munro — a Scottish botanist, one of the survivors of the attack and one who lives in a castle in Scotland with only a servant around and in the dark with a dire need for a housekeeper. At the end of To Seduce a Sinner Melisande sends him a housekeeper, a Beauty who will, I am most certain, tame the tortured, dark, and did I mention, Scottish!!! Be still my heart, it is a Beauty and the Beast story and I can not wait for it.
Verdict: Very good , with a gripping mystery and a good pair of protagonists. Recommended to fans of Elizabeth Hoyt and for those who love historical romance with scorching sex on the side.

Ana Grilo is a Brazilian who moved to the UK because of the weather. No, seriously. I loved how things between Jasper and Mel moved from friendship, to respect and then finally love. And even though Mel is an ugly duckling, Jasper thought she was beautiful because he fell in love with her. Hoyt is very hit or miss for me. I have the first in this series on my shelf.
