I could have enjoyed this book if the foul language and sex were not in it. I skipped so many pages because of that. Very sad you think having those things in Your books will sell more. I won’t ever read another book written by you.

Dark and gritty

I love how KB weaves tales of the gentry and the underclass together seamlessly. I feel like I'm watching a Dateline special every time I read one of her books. Seducing a Stranger is no different. I really enjoyed the whodunit and I was satisfied with the ending. I also liked the side characters and j wish I knew more about them. Not having read her Victorian Rebels series, I was unfamiliar with so.e if the references but it didn't detract from my enjoyment. The only drawback was the heroine. I was not a fan of Prudence at all. I feel like she never fully appreciated everything that Morely did for her and she didn't claim responsibility for the situation she was in. Hopefully the other sisters are less insufferable.

It was good

It was a good book and a quick read. I love all of the other characters mentioned in the book. I don't think I'd read it again though.

More like dark and steamy

This is the 3rd Kerrigan Byrne I've read and she is quickly becoming a favorite. I love seeing favorites from her other books pop up here. A good stand alone but probably more enjoyable if you have read the others.
This story was a good mix of mystery, romance, and some comedy. I highly enjoyed it.


Love reading Byrne Kerrigan book! Couldn't wait for Morley to find love, after Farrah! Really glad he got his own book.

Seducing a Reader is more like it.

Seducing a Reader is more like it. Who doesn’t wish for a lifetime of passion, but for Pru she’d take just one night of thats all she’d ever get being married off to scoundrel with several mistress and bastard children. For Morley he never imagined finding a seductive debutant willing looking for debauchery while trying to find a murderer.
One night of passion and Morley never imagined he’d see Prudence again until she becomes one of his murder suspects and has a secret that she has been carrying. Together they try to unravel the secrets and learn to trust one another.

Seducing a Stranger

This book was one of those stories that you cannot quit reading until you finnish. It was full of excitement and intrigue and romance.

Sweetly intimate and passionate

Another winner by this author. I can't get enough of these strong, passionate broken heros Bryrne writes. Chief Carl is by far my favorite. The man would drive a woman to drink with his stubbornness but his thoughtfulness and protective nature melts the heart. Prudence is also a formidable character and perfect for our hero. Her gentle strength and consistent presence in his life forces him to learn to trust and love again. Perfect.
