Books Are Cool continues in its current historical fiction mood with a review today of A Warriner To Seduce Her by Virginia Heath. We’re joining in the big launch party for this excellent book.
The title might suggest a bodice-ripper awaits us, and while our hero Jake Warriner is a self-confessed rake this book is far more sophisticated that its name might imply.
For reasons you’ll have to discover for yourselves in the book, Jake is intent on seducing a certain young lady, namely the niece of an influential nobleman, Sir Crispin Rowley. This niece, Felicity ‘Fliss’ Blunt, at her uncle’s invitation is having her season in London. But she’d really rather not. This down-to-earth northern lass does not want to be spend time trussed up in corsets and ridiculous dresses and being flirted with. And she may be short sighted but she quickly sees through Jakes attempts to win her heart.
Or she thinks she does, and she’s very unimpressed with her handsome would-be suitor. She doesn’t realise that he has genuinely fallen for her. Things are about to get very complicated.
The story proceeds from here with lots of exciting action, witty exchanges. There’s emotion, demons to face, thrills, romance and a clever plot. There is a fine cast of fascinating characters, all rounded and intriguing.
This is a very enjoyable read. It’s the fourth book in the Warriner series but works well as a standalone, and if you haven’t read the preceding books then you will certainly want to after reading this one.
A sensible schoolmistress… Awakened by the notorious rake!
In this The Wild Warriners story, schoolmistress Felicity Blunt feels old beyond her years?and desperately dull. Meeting confirmed rake Jacob Warriner brings her gloriously alive, and yet no matter his allure she must remain immune to his obvious charms and unashamed flirtation. But is Jacob merely a mischievous scoundrel? Or is there much more to this Warriner than meets the eye…?

When Virginia Heath was a little girl it took her ages to fall asleep, so she made up stories in her head to help pass the time while she was staring at the ceiling. As she got older, the stories became more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace the insomnia and start writing them down. Fortunately, the lovely people at Harlequin Mills & Boon took pity on her and decided to publish her romances, but it still takes her forever to fall asleep.
