A Novel Seduction by Gwyn Cready

Sunday, October 23, 2011

Synopsis: When snobbish book critic Ellery Sharpe screws up at Vanity Place magazine, her boss assigns her the ultimate punishment: write an ode to romance novels, a genre she considers the literary equivalent of word search puzzles. To make matters worse, he hires her sexy former party boy ex, Axel Mackenzie, to shoot the photos. Axel really wants the project to succeed. For one, the magazine will double his fee if he convinces strong-willed Ellery to write a story no woman can resist. Besides, getting Ellery to fall for romance novels might be just the push she needs to believe people can change . . . even him. At his sister’s advice, Axel gives Ellery a copy of Kiltlander, a much-adored romance whose warrior hero is utterly irresistible. To her dismay, Ellery finds herself secretly falling in love with the story—and with Axel, who’s drawing his own lessons from the book’s compelling hero. With her carefully crafted image of herself crumbling and her dream job on the line, will Ellery risk it all to make the leap from tight-lipped literati to happily-ever-after heroine?

Review: Gwyn Cready's A Novel Seduction is a fun and witty read. I found myself enthralled with Ellery's character. After screwing up an assignment for Vanity Place magazine, Ellery is assigned to write an ode to romance novels, a subject she rather not touch with a ten foot pole. To make matters worse she's forced to work side by side with her steamy ex, Axel Mackenzie. I found the characters within the novel were actually my favorite part about the book. Cready does a fantastic job with her writing and it seems quite obvious that A Novel Seduction itself, is an ode to romance novels in particular Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. A Novel Seduction is not only a great book for romance readers but for readers who have yet to jump into the celestial world of romance. At times, it's hard to describe why we love romance novels so much and Cready does a fantastic job explaining it. If you're ready for a fun, witty read than I highly recommend this one! The characters are charming and the dialogue will keep you smiling the whole way through.
