Lace and Lavender- Best Historical Romance I've Read in Ages

Its been a while since I've settled into a historical romance this good. Between the gripping mystery surrounding the scandal of Alyce Hythe's name and her passionate romance with Julian Casvelyn, Seductive Secrets had me hooked. Unpredictable catastrophe and suspicion followed Alyce throughout the novel, at every new page there seemed to be a new development to the scandal surrounding her and I absolutely loved it! Unlike so many other novels I was refreshed by the fact that Seductive Secrets was not predictable; I had no idea where the story was going to go next, every clue to the mystery was a surprise! As to the romance surrounding Alice Hythe and Julian Casvelyn... well lets just sa,y it was very steamy... in a good way. Overall I would definitely recommend Seductive Secrets to anyone who likes a novel where romance and scandalous mystery have a starring role.




Readers Review:
Jackie- Simply mesmerizing....
Colleen Connally has a gift for weaving love stories filled with conspiracy, sacrifice, deceit, loyalty, hardships and least of all love. I am completely enthralled with her work. Eloise' s character in this story has experienced so much hardship and difficulties I am humbled with the ease the author was able to make me feel and see the heroines live. Colleen has the ability to transport you in time and place you within the story. The way the characters are introduced and how their relationship begins was brilliant. Eloise's story was heart breaking. Colleen was able to again merge different worlds from different social standards and had a great supporting cast that enriched the plot of the story full of betrayal and conceit.
Making the reader connect with the protagonists is difficult but Colleen has the ability to make you see through theirs eyes and feels what they felt. I felt pain for Eloise with all her predicament and admired her strong will and courage. This is the first novel I have read where the heroine is so powerful in characters yet her endurance was not over bearing on the hero, Gerald. I would have given the story a 5 star but I think the author was a little redundant after a while and the end of the story (epilogue) could have been a bit more heart felt. I don't want to spoil the ending but if you call yourself a friend and your live is saved wouldn't you do all in your power to reciprocate especially to remedy a terrible wrong once you were on free territory. I felt the author did not redeem Giselle very well and some of the other characters. Overall, the story was mesmerizing with a heart felt plot and magnificent work!
