Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Lucien Jones, son of a viscount, returned from war, to find his wife and child dead. Blaming his father for the commission that sent him off to fight Boney's forces, he was content to languish at London Hospital - until offered employment on the Marquess of Drake's staff. Through his position, Lucien found purpose in life and is content to keep his past buried.
Lady Eloise Yardley has loved Lucien since they were children. Having long ago given up on the dream of him, she married another. Years later, she is a young, lonely widow who does not fit in with the ton. When Lucien's family enlists her aid to reunite father and son, she leaps at the opportunity to not only aid her former friend, but to also escape London.
Lucien doesn't know what scheme Eloise has concocted, but knowing her as he does, when she pays a visit to his employer, he knows she's up to something. The last thing he wants is the temptation that this new, older, mature Eloise presents; a tantalizing reminder of happier times and peace.
Yet Eloise is determined to win Lucien's love once and for all - if only Lucien can set aside the pain of his past and risk all on a lady's heart.

"Vice-count", seriously??

While i enjoyed the story and writing very much, Hugh Bradley's mispronunciations of words essential to any Regency Romance had me gritting my teeth to make it to the end. He is basically an enjoyable Reader so I don!t understand why his blunders are so bad.

Seduced by a Lady’s Heart

This book is the continued story of Lord Drake and Emmaline, Scandelous Season Book 1 “Forever Betrothed, Never the Bride”, and of the main character Jones, who is employed in the Drake household. Jones is introduced in Scandelous Season Book 1 of a war weary man who not only lost his wife and son, but his arm. He once desired to commit suicide, but Emmaline’s visits to the hospital stays him. Afterwards, he meets Drake, who gives him a position in the stables. In “Seduced by a Lady’s Heart”, Jones is elevated to a butler. He is then found by a past childhood female friend, Eloise, who is a widow. She is attempting to get him to return home as his father is dying, but Jones is angry with his father for making him go into the army. Eloise has always loved Jones and they were always together until Jones met his wife. Afterwards Jones simply forgot Eloise, but now she has returned. This is a sad story of how war affects a person, but it has an uplifting ending. I do miss Tim Campbell’s narrative. I feel Hugh Bradley’s narrative is a bit dramatic.
