review 1: REVIEW This book is a little more serene than Ms. Beverley's books. Perriam Manor has been left to Perry by his cousin. There is one condition, he must marry Claris Mallow. Perry didn't want to marry anyone, but he also didn't want to lose the property. He's not the only one who doesn't want to get married. Claris doesn't either. She raised her twin brothers after her parents died. They had a terrible marriage. She realizes that marrying him had it's advantages and has her own demands about the marriage. Perry is desperate enough to marry her under her demands. It isn't too long and the business arrangement became more, much more. Claris was a strong, independent woman. She had struggled to make a life for herself and her brothers, grandmother and a friend. Perry ... morehad a real sense of humor which probably helped him and Claris to get through the struggles and demands they had to go through.Perry is a good man. The author wrote the characters so that they were real. You could almost place yourself in their lives. There were a lot of secondary characters which only added to the interest of the story. Ms. Beverley gave the reader a wonderful adventure that will keep you captivated from page one. It's nice to find a woman that is comfortable in her own skin. She knew what she wanted and wasn't afraid to go after it. I would recommend this book to anyone. It started out with an adventure and ended in romance, with history added in. Grab yourself a copy and go on the ups and downs with Perry and Claris. Quite an adventure! This book is a keeper to read again another day.I would give this book 4 RINGS.I was given a complimentary copy of SEDUCTION IN SILK by Jo Beverley from Manic Readers for my honest opinion. No other compensation took place.
review 2: Once again Jo Beverly does not disappoint. Oftentimes I drink historicals up like water however I do not feel any real affinity for the characters. They either fit into some pre-established mold. (Oh gee, look.. I am the over intelligent female lead, or hark.. I am the broody tall dark and handsome man with a giant ass chip on my shoulder.) Those books are fun to read but you can't tell one from the other.Not with Jo Beverely. I love her books because all the characters are unique. I can tell Chasity from Claris from Felicity from Genova from Eleanor from Anne. Just like I can tell Nicholas from Lucien from Cyn from Rothgar. Each character is intricately crafted so as to be a treat and thus when every new book comes out, it's like insta-buy. The only two other authors that can do this to me are Lauren Willig and Julia Quinn.I recommend all of her series. Both the Company of Rogues as well as the books set in the Malloren world. less

A quiet romance, but one that kept me engrossed, and I loved the background period detail as well.
I almost feel the title doesn't really match the tale, however it's still a satisfying read.
All over the place and clearly part of a bigger story than I care about.
