After graduating from university, moved to Saskatchewan, Canada, to teach high school English, on a two-year teaching contract in 1967. Then Comes Seduction is the second novel in Huxtable Family Quintet. Katherine Huxtable knows that Jasper Finley, Baron Montford, is a rake, but he's an amusing conversation partner and rather handsome with it. However, when he leads her into a side path at Vauxhall and introduces her to passion, he informs her it is all because of a wager that he can seduce her within a fortnight. Something in Montford's conscience means that he doesn't go through with the seduction, but they are both so embarrassed by the episode that they avoid each other for the next three years. When they meet again and Jasper's young half-sister, Charlotte, takes a shine to Katherine and her sister Meg, they are thrown together. Unfortunately, the social world knows that Montford is a rake who never shows any partiality for ladies of quality, and a scheming relative may see a way to hurt Jasper. When marriage is the only option, both Jasper and Katherine fear their future. Can she survive in a marriage with a man who will not love? Can he ever overcome his awful childhood with a cold, unloving stepfather? You can listen online to free English audiobook “Then Comes Seduction” by Mary Balogh on our website. Enjoy it!
