Publisher's Summary

The surprising news that dashing steward Harrison Tolly, illegitimate son of the Earl of Ashwood, is the rightful heir to his father’s estate comes at a most inopportune time. With a wedding on the horizon and a baby on the way, a new life of privilege and prestige would be a blessing but for one problem: His heart belongs to another woman.
Harrison keeps his desires for his employer’s wife, Lady Olivia Carey, so hidden that even she does not know of his devotion. Her callous husband, Marquis Carey, went into a rampage after Olivia’s troublesome younger sister returned from her tour of Spain pregnant, and Harrison impulsively stepped in to save the entire family from scandal. Now, like Olivia, he is trapped in a loveless arrangement.
When a tragic accident claims the marquis’ life soon thereafter, can Harrison seize his chance and cast aside one sister for another? Or will doing so expose the Carey family’s darkest secret - and ruin his only chance to win Olivia’s heart?

This is one of the top 5 books that I have listened to. I happened to get the 3rd book from this series and I wanted to know what happened next and I loved what I heard!
From beginning to end, this book keeps you interested, you think you know what will happen when something totally different happens and that is the kind of book I like.
The narration is on point, pulls you in, makes you sad, angry, happy and satisfied at different points of story. The length was good, it didn't feel like it was that long and makes you want to have more story, more time.
You cannot not go wrong with this book: love, hate, struggle, temptation, betrayal, all the makings of a great story!

A Series of Unfortunate Events

Would you listen to The Seduction of Lady X again? Why?

Yes, I'll definitely listen to this book again. It has a story line like no other of the ~300 historical romance novels I've read and/or listened to in the past couple of years. It is kind of disturbing though as one bad thing after another happens to you need to be prepared for you begin!

What did you like best about this story?

Again, that the story line was totally different than anything else I've read and the ending. Thank goodness for the ending.

Have you listened to any of Justine Eyre’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Justine Eyre ALWAYS delivers a solid performance. I've listened to a lot of books narrated by Justine Eyre and I always enjoy her performance.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No - I don't think I could ever listen to this book in one sitting even though I know the outcome now. It's just too disturbing.

Any additional comments?

I have to give this book 5 stars because its like no other historical romance I've read. The only criticism I really have is that this really doesn't qualify as part of the Hadley Green series because there's nothing about Hadley Green and very little about Ashwood until the end of the book. This book is really a stand alone book with a touch of Hadley Green thrown in at the end.
