Helen Banks is going to die. When her twin brother gambles away their fortune, she must save his life and take his place in a duel to satisfy the honor of a man her brother couldn’t pay. Disguised as her brother, Helen faces the one man she’s admired from afar, a widower with a dark past and eyes that scorch her very soul.
Since Gareth Fairfax lost his wife, the darkness in his heart continues to grow. Lashing out at anyone who opposes him, Gareth is stunned to face a lovely young woman opposite his dueling pistol. After discovering Helen’s deception, he offers her a choice: become his mistress or her brother dies.

Their devil’s bargain turns into a slow, sweet, intoxicating seduction. With each passing hour, Helen uncovers Gareth’s secret heartbreak and yet she can’t help but fall for the man who has ruined her. With Helen in his arms, Gareth wonders if he might yet be saved. All it takes is one passionate embrace, a kiss from the depths of his soul and a night of wild abandon.


#1 in the “Seduction” series. First published in the Anthology “Captivated by His Kiss”. Fast paced, dark romance with a brooding hero and an innocent Lady, who fights a duel as her twin brother. A quick, enjoyable read! A bit unique, packed full of excitement and danger, with seduction and romance. An enjoyable and satisfying read! While, some readers may find the brooding hero a bit off-putting, I enjoyed Gareth,who,I hoped would redeem himself
in the end. As for our heroine,Helen, I wanted to yell, “are you crazy”, “you can’t do that”, but of course, she does. Her twin, what can one say, he needs a strong hand. I hope to read more of this exciting new series. An enjoyable and yes, very satisfying read. Fans if dark, brooding heroes and amazing, strong heroines will enjoy “The Duelist’s Seduction”. A must read!
