Release Date: October 15th 2015

Publisher: Self-published

Laura Baker has a plan. She's going to make Jack McClaren, bad boy of the art world, face up to his responsibilities. Jack has a plan, to track down his elusive creative spark. When Laura ambushes him he's found it. Now to light the fuse, sit back and enjoy the fireworks...
"If you love a sexy, sizzling book that packs an emotional punch, you've just found your perfect next read. Five sparkly stars from me." Kitty French, USA Today Bestselling Author.

'I live in London and work in a florists, though I do a bit of waitressing in the evenings as well, to make some extra money. With the mess my sister Sophie has got into we're going to need every penny and it's not like I can rely on Mum or Dad to help out.
It was through the waitressing temp job I finally found a way to turn things around, to make things right for my little sister. Going through the proper channels got me nowhere so I had to get...creative. The laws of right and wrong apply to everyone, or at least they should do. I admit Jack McClaren is super hot, after all I'm not blind, but he stands for all the things I despise - he's feckless and irresponsible and it's time someone made him pay. That someone is going to be me.'

'I should be in a great place right now, commissions have made me rich and critics have named me as one of the greatest portrait painters of the twenty first century. Apparently I'm the 'bad boy of the art-world', or so my publicist would have you believe. But I've got a problem, my creative spark is ominously absent, it's been AWOL for a while. I'm busy procrastinating when Laura rockets into my life, bringing the elusive spark of inspiration with her. Sounds good, yes? Right up to the point when she opens her mouth and what she says...well, let's just say her accusation leaves me reeling. It's not long though before I realise I can turn the situation to my advantage. Seduction is an art and I've been told I'm a skilled artist in more ways than one. I'm all for taking opportunities to perfect my art. With Laura my plan is simple - light the fuse and then sit back and enjoy the fireworks.'

My Opinion

As most of you who follow my reviews will know, I love Lorraine Wilson's Chalet Girl series. They're sweet, short reads with just the right amount of cheesy to put a smile on my face and get me in the mood for winter. Therefore I was excited to follow this author as she ventured into self-publishing.

The Art of Seduction comes with everything I've grown to love about this author. Although it's longer than her previous novellas, it's still a short read I breezed through. It's a cute book and one that held my attention well. The writing was easy to follow and it flowed to create a simple story that immersed me in the art world.

I especially liked the art theme. I'm a very creative person who's always painting or doing some kind of craft, so I enjoyed the world the author created. It was a little different to other books I've read and it made for an interesting relationship with artist and muse.

As for the Jack and Laura, although I didn't think there was as much chemistry as in this author's others work, I did engage with them. Things didn't delve too deeply into a back story and there was probably more emotion and plot that could have been included, but like I said it was short and easy. It was what I needed for the day I was having.

Overall, her Chalet Girls are still my favourite, but this was a good read.
