Summary

Hailey Ashton projects an image that she's on top of everything, but no one realizes that she lives a life of quiet emptiness - not ready to have a relationship, not willing to give herself body and soul to a man.

Never able to compete with her younger sister, the thoughtless beauty of the family, Hailey opted to be the "good girl." But when she meets Tyler Scott - her rich, attractive new boss - she longs to be anything but good. She wants to be chic, smart, and savvy.

Tyler is self-assured with women. But when it comes to being a father, he's got a lot to learn. Hailey Ashton seems perfect. His attraction to her is so powerful he wants her in his arms - as well as in his daughter's life.

In Seduction by Design, Hailey and Tyler discover that relationships don't happen on demand - and trust must be earned as Hailey faces the challenges that forever change what a woman thinks, who she is, whom she loves.

Short, Sweet and Simple

This is classic Sandra Brown, uncomplicated, easy to listen to and romantic. Although there are times times I found myself rolling my eyes at either an unlikely turn of events or a totally unbelieveable response to a question, I liked the book. This book does not have a challenging plot or deep characterization, but it is short, sweet and simple. Enjoy

I Love Sanda Brown!

This is the first book I read by Sandra Brown. I loved it and thus have purchased most of her other audio.

This is a Cinderella story, but the Prince has major attitude. The male lead is very dominant and confident. It makes some of the scenes very interesting. The 'romance' is very steamy and the story is a happily ever after. If that's what you're in the mood for - you cannot go wrong here!

Yuck!

I cringed at the story line and I could not believe some of the dialog and descriptive language. the relationship between the characters was so stereo typed that I was rolling my eyes all the way through it. male perfection oozing confidence and braun vs insecure woman who is set up to be seduced and "cannot believe how HE would like HER" kind of stuff. so predictable and in such contrast to the other books which were amazing - Envy and the Alibi. no contest. this is a definite eeeh!

I Can’t Believe Sandra Brown Wrote This

There’s no plot to this snooze-fest...a tired story with a rich dad using a pre-teen daughter to advance his workplace sexual harassment.

I based this purchase on the author being a favorite storyteller but it was too painful to keep going. I kept reminding myself it was a Sandra Brown book and the plot would get going, but it didn’t. I feel sorry for her to have her name on this drivel. Save your money or credits and stick with her later books.

This is a story?

SB should stick to mystery writing. Romance is not her forte'. This is basically soft porn with a hint of a story. Apparently Ms Brown doesn't realize that romance stories do not have to contain so much detailed physical/sexual descriptions-at least 80% of the book falls into this category. An actual story is so much more compelling.....

Note to self:Bad Writter strikes again!!!

Jezz Louise. Just reading the last paragraph of the publisher's review is enough for me. We the readers are told the lessons the characters will learn by the end of the book.
