Effervescent bon vivant Lucy Eastlake is a young operetta singer whose star is on the rise in Edwardian London. Though struggling to maintain her beloved great-aunts’ household, she holds fast to the belief that “things will work out.” Now, with the fiftieth anniversary of a siege her great-aunt Lavinia lived through approaching, it looks like Lucy is right, because a fortune is due to be divided among the survivors. All Lucy and her great-aunts have to do is travel to a small Pyrenees town to claim Lavinia’s share of a fabulous treasure in rubies. What could be more simple?Professor Ptolemy Archibald Grant is the brilliant, straitlaced grandson of a British lord who also withstood the siege. When his grandfather asks him as a matter of honor to escort his old love on the journey, the about-to-be married professor agrees, not expecting Lucy to be part of the bargain. Losing the great-aunts en route, the handsome, buttoned-down professor finds himself caught up in Lucy’s quirky, bewildering, and probably illegal efforts to reunite with them, as he is drawn further and further into an inexplicable infatuation with the free-spirited singer. What could be more complicated?But when unwilling attraction gives way to sizzling passion, both will be forced to confront the ages-old question of whether love trumps honor…or the other way around.

Feeling as if each time was an audition of sorts Lucy becomes whatever she feels her new guardian wants her to be. After a term ...

5.0 Review--The Songbird's Seduction
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of classic comedy with romance, especially the trope of the serious guy whose world is overturned by the free-spirited woman who he thinks is All Wrong For Him. But it can't be a movie where the woman's a plot device, a manic pixie dreamgirl with no needs or desire...

4.0 The Songbird's Seduction
Quirky, fun, and romantic in the Edwardian age! I love the unusual heroes and heroines of Connie Brockway's stories! She takes us on an adventure through Downton Abbey's England and France. A rising operretta star, Lucy Eastlake is used to conforming to everyone's expectations. Passed around to num...

An interesting setting with interesting characters and a plot with fun, adventure and twist. I quite enjoyed it. Lucy was quite a character and her approach to everything was fresh and unique, and Archie - or Ptolemy - grew from boring to lively. I also like the Aunts and the old love story, but...
