As Alexandra tries to conform to her new life, she soon discovers that betrayal lies inside the castle walls. When noblewomen plot against her, Alexandra ends up on the receiving end of Branford’s rage. Earning the trust of her wary husband will be no easy task for the young handmaid.
Branford may know his way around their bedchamber, but he’s finding himself ill-prepared to handle the duties of both prince and husband. His missteps bring down the wrath of the queen, and he will have to do everything in his power to atone for his transgressions. Branford must find a way to open his heart to his new wife if either of them has a chance of overcoming the treachery ahead.
The Seduction: Unexpected Circumstances
Ok, if you missed my review of book 1, The Handmaid, then you don’t understand my CRAZY obsession with this series. Seriously, I have considered going to Shay Savage’s house and stealing the rest of the series so I can have it now. But, my husband says thats not acceptable. He just doesn’t get it.
So, the Seduction picks up where the Handmaid left off-Alexandra and Branford are married, she is still terrified and lost, and he is still not getting her at all. Enter the mean girls! Even in olden times there were mean girls. Kimberly and Nelle play a horrible prank on Alexandra and Branford immediately thinks the worst of his wife. Thankfully, the queen steps in and makes him see the error of his ways. They slowly begin to get to know each other and to try and understand each other. And they still haven’t consummated their marriage yet. Talk about slow burn people!!!
