She was the only code he couldn't break...

Vivienne Le Fleur is one of London’s most sought after opera dancer and one of England’s best weapons: the spy known as the Flower. When a French agent pressures her to change allegiance by abducting her sister, Vivienne is forced to seek the help of the only man in London who doesn’t want her.

Maximilian Westwood, retired code breaker, doesn't like surprises or mysteries and The Flower is both. When she sneaks into his study in the middle of the night with a coded message, he’s ready to push her out whatever window she arrived through. Except Maximilian is unable to turn away a woman in trouble. Determined to rescue Vivienne’s sister, they engage in a game of cat and mouse with French spies that requires all of Vivienne’s training and Maximilian’s abilities. Bound together by secrecy, they discover there is more between them than politics and hidden codes, but love has no place among the secrets of espionage...


I loved the way the story evolved. I enjoyed the banter even though Max was a grumpy sort it was endearing, and their attraction was always simmering while their work brought them closer to unraveling the hidden code.” - Maria D., review

I absolutely loved this book! Ms. Alexander has a flair with words that convey such deep emotions without going on and on.” - Debra L. Martin, author of Assassin’s Curse

“I was quickly drawn into the story with the first paragraph. The descriptions were wonderful, vivid and you feel as though you could step into the scene.” - Candy B., review

The characters are very well portrayed, Vivienne & Maximilian are very likable, their attraction grows throughout the story & the way he protects her is lovely even though she’s more than capable of looking after herself. There are twists & turns & I was surprised…” - Janet B., review

“I thought this was a fantastic book.” - Leigh C., review

“Watching these two characters grow, learn to love one another was sweet. Their love was not instantaneous yet their attraction was, which led to some deliciously tense moments throughout the novel. Hands down, this is worth every bit of five stars and more!” - Brooke B., NetGalley review

I've given this a B at AAR.

It’s been a few years since I’ve seen a new novel from Alyssa Alexander, so I eagerly pounced on A Dance with Seduction, which, while released by a different publisher, is a continuation of her A Spy in the Ton series. I enjoyed her last book, a tightly written, sexy histo ...more

This is my first book by Alyssa Alexander. After looking at reviews of the other books in this series, I may go back and read them.

I seem to be all over the place with this book. I love spy stories and I think code-brea ...more

'A Dance with Seduction' by Alyssa Alexander is Book Three in the " A Spy in the Ton". This is the story of Max and Vivienne. I have not yet read the other books, so for me this was a standalone book.

Maximilian Westwood is a much sort after code-breaker, even now that he's retired. But when the lovely Vivienne La Fleur comes to him because she needs his help in breaking a coded message, he decides to help her, because there's no way he'd turned away a woman in desperate need of his services. How ...more

Great book!!

Vivienne Le Fleur is a woman with many facets like a diamond she's beautiful, strong and fearless. She's also a French opera dancer/spy who will do anything for her family. When her younger sister is abducted by an unsavoury French spy to force her hand in switching sides, she has no cho ...more

A fun spy adventure!

A Dance with Seduction, written by Alyssa Alexander, is the perfect blend of romance and suspense with a spy twist! I loved both the previous stories, and this third one, also kept my attention until the very end. I loved her two charming characters Vivienne and Maximilian! This ...more

I absolutely loved this book! Ms. Alexander has a flair with words that convey such deep emotions without going on and on. I appreciate that as I'm not a fan of authors who keep repeating the same internal dialogue over and over again. This story revolves around Vivienne Le Fleur, a French opera dan ...more

By v.v July 29, 2017

A Dance of Seduction is a book that I enjoyed reading as a result of a phenomenal premise, with suspense, mystery and a good deal of romance. From the start, the book was realistic in regards to both characters and plot. These characteristics along with a refreshing new take on spies made A Dance of ...more

By Linda July 24, 2017

My favourite kind of hero. Max is intelligent – fluent in many languages (he admits to himself that Persian is a rather difficult language to master!) and to top if off the best code breaker in all of England. The kind of man who has no patience for the frivolity of the ton. The second son, while no ...more

3.5-4 stars.

Well, this was fun.

I don’t read that much HR, but this one was right up my alley.

I LOVED Vivienne, such a kick ass girl in such a male-dominant world. I loved her fierce side, yet I also liked seeing her vulnerable and softer. I mean, underneath her tough exterior there WAS a woman who l ...more

A Dance with Seduction is book 3 in Alyssa Alexander's A Spy in the Ton series. It's the first book I have read by her and these can be read as standalones.

Not your typical spy meets love happily ever after romance. A Dance with Seduction has detailed complex characters. Flower, a spy, dancer, sister, forced into a world of intrigue to discover she thrives in this world. Maxmiliian (love this name) ex-soldier/codebreaker now translation expert. When a ...more

A Dance With Seduction is a spectacular historical romance by Alyssa Alexander. Ms. Alexander has provided readers with a well-written book populated with a phenomenal cast of characters. Maximilian no longer works as a code breaker for His Majesty. Vivienne, Mademoiselle La Fleur, is a pick-pocket, ...more

A definite buy buy buy book. Arguably a five star however, due to some little quirks I went four.
This was a spy story romance. one that actually caught my attention and held it through out the story. I loved all the characters and the way the plot unfolded. I would of wished for a faster pace at ti ...more

By R. August 12, 2020

There's a lot going on in this book and at times difficult to keep up with who was doing what and where the story was going. I liked both the H and the h. Though I felt like the story did drag in places. Also the idea of a spy that didn't engage in sexual relations to conduct her business seems a bi ...more

By Laura July 25, 2017

I liked the books and the characters. Vivienne Le Fleur isn't the typical debutante, but a sought after opera dancer and a spy known as the Flower. When her sister is abducted by a French agent wanting her to be a double agent, she seeks Maximilian Westwood. Maximilian is a retired code-breaker that ...more

By Amanda August 03, 2017

I was asked by the author for an honest review.

I would have liked to give A Dance with Seduction 3.5 stars. I don't read a lot of historical romance novels, but given that the main female character was already established as a mistress this story didn't have the same social limits for acceptable beh ...more

By Patricia April 16, 2018

I actually loved the story line with a female spy who was lethal vs one who swoons at the drop of a hat. The picture of Max was almost a stick in the mud before he started interacting with Vivienne. She brought him to life in the story. Henri just gave me the creeps, but loved Jones! Hopefully somet ...more

By Candy July 18, 2017

I was quickly drawn into the story with the first paragraph. The descriptions were wonderful, vivid and you feel as though you could step into the scene. It was so dark, he could not see a thing but her hand always found his without fumbling, as if she could see in the dark. The characters were life ...more

By Leigh July 15, 2017

Overall, I thought this was a fantastic book. It took me a while to get interested in it. It wasn't until Max and Vivienne started looking for Anne together that I started liking it. Before this, I knew it had a lot of potential, so I stuck with it. The beginning was kind of bland and many interacti ...more
