Liselle isn’t looking for a hero, especially not at the ripe old age of forty-three, but when John saves her from a blizzard, she can’t help falling just a little bit in love. He’s sexy, strong, and ex-military, with a sassy niece and four older sisters who clearly adore him.
Even so, looks alone aren’t enough to convince her that he can be trusted. After all, her brother and father tormented her for years—she knows better than to think a man can make her happy.
When John comes to her rescue, will she let old habits rule? Or will she let him heat her up and melt the fear in her heart?

What are people saying about Seducing Liselle?
Rating: 4 stars
SEDUCING LISELLE is a heartfelt and sexy romance with two troubled people finding love, peace and contentment together. This is just my kind of romance!
Liselle is on the run from her abusive father but wants to connect with the niece she never knew existed. So Liselle makes an impromptu visit and meets John, her niece’s uncle. John is a sexy ex-military and willing to share a night of passion with Liselle. But Liselle’s father is still chasing her and she’s not sure she can open herself to trusting John, no matter how good he seems.
I love a romance where both leads are older and have survived rough lives. This is true for both John and Liselle, as he’s been medically discharged from the military and Liselle has been tormented by her father and brother since childhood. They both want to connect with someone but don’t trust easily. The sexual chemistry is explosive between them and I love how active Liselle is in their sexual relationship, especially given her past. John’s kindness and gentle tenderness knocks at Liselle’s emotional walls and sets up an emotionally as well as sexually intense relationship.
The plot of Liselle’s father is expected but it offered a nice resolution for Liselle. It also serves to crystallize Liselle’s feelings for John and allows her to move on from her years of abuse. John’s family are lovely secondary characters and offer enough humor without taking over the story.
SEDUCING LISELLE is a very good romance of two mature characters who well deserve their HEA.
Rating: 4 Hoots!
Reading this story with the characters over the age of 40 was enlightening, honest, and heart-warming. Liselle is the classic damsel in distress, but still a strong independent personality. John is the all-around American Hero good-guy. They fit very well together, and the author gives them a depth that makes them believable. The secondary characters and their roles with the both the main character and amongst themselves gives the story humor and support.
The climatic situation will have you sitting on the edge of your seat…but don’t worry at just over 100 pages it is easy to push through and finish in one day, so you won’t have to wait long for that Happily Ever After. Let’s not forget the sex, and believe me you won’t forget about it even after you’re finished with this one!
