“Equal parts action, passion, and fun.” - NYT bestselling author Grace Burrowes
To win her, he must seduce her…
From enemies to lovers...
The wealthy and handsome Marquess of Camryn can have any woman he desires, but the charismatic bachelor shocks everyone by falling for the rather prudish Charlotte Livingston—who happens to abhor everything the rising politician and captain of industry represents.
When the no-nonsense social campaigner shows zero interest in him, Camryn is even more drawn to her and sets out to seduce the lady's mind—as well as her body. But as the attraction begins to burn between them, a violent rebellion rages across England, pitting the two against each other, and leaving their love caught in the crossfire.
"Equal parts action, passion and fun. As well written as it is well researched." -Grace Burrowes, New York Times bestselling author
" ...the dialogue is very clever, a façade of social niceties that hide cutting truths...an enjoyable, fast paced and interesting novel with well drawn and deserving characters." -Romance Historical Lovers
"... one of 2013′s revelations...a charming and captivating historical romance...one of my favourite reads of this year!" -Stella, Ex Libris
" ...what a debut. Quick, fun read that is fast paced and passion filled. Filled with industry, textile mills, secrets, and did I mention passion?" -My Book Addiction

“Would you fight for love, Charlotte? No matter what the cost?” Her chest felt painfully hollow. “I don’t know.” But of course she already had. Just not in the way he meant. “Don’t you?” His face lowered to the side of her bare neck. The warmth of his lips, the roughness of the skin on his cheek,... ...more

In addition to newly coming into his inheritance and being a successful industrialist, he's devastatingly handsome and charming.

I decided to read Seducing Charlotte because the blurb reminded me a lot of the story of North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell (where Richard Armitage played the hero Mr. Thornton in the TV adaptation), and although the story and its tone was quite different (Seducing Charlotte was much lighter, l... ...more

I was given a copy for review purposes, but opinions expressed in the following review are my own.
What they say (blurb & book info): Even if he is the catch of the season, Charlotte Livingston has a low opinion of the wildly handsome Marquess of Camryn.... ...more
Loved this book! Seducing Charlotte is a different historical romance and that's what made it so great.
I love how this book was set in the conflict of industrialism versus reformists. That's a very interesting time, full of conflict, tension, and the beginnings of the modern world. The fact that... ...more
Here’s the deal. Even though this is the first book in the series and the début for Ms. Quincy, if you want to read this series in order, you should read Willa’s story first, then Charlotte’s second and Bella’s story is the last in the series. For some reason ‘the men in suits’ that bought these... ...more

I liked the author’s style of writing & the storyline was good with a background of the emerging industrial revolution; not something that I've come across much of in the historical romances I've read to date.

Loved the earthy, socially conscious heroine (Charlotte) and her hero, Cam. Set against the Luddite uprisings, this book gave a fresh perspective on historical romance.
The fact that, for once, you saw the hero falling in love first and having to convince the heroine was a refreshing twist. The l... ...more
I really enjoyed this story. There were a lot of clever twists, and I liked the Luddite/Mill owner/Laborer plot points. Since the peerage were so slow to accept change, I loved that Cam was a forward thinker.
