Sara's Review: Art & Seduction by Elaine Radley
Author Provided Copy
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Released: April 18th 2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: 45 Pages
The moment playboy Daniel Shaw walked into the gallery, Eliza Kendrick knew she had a problem. All that wavy, dark hair, his crystal-blue eyes, and a sexy sideways smile threatens her control. But she didn't want a player. She wanted a future. So what if she'd had one lapse. The "elevator incident" shouldn't count. Even if it did, it was only one time... Daniel’s reputation preceded him, but it wasn't that bad. Was it? Even so, it was time to settle down, and he knew who he wanted by his side. He simply needed to convince Eliza. Of course, words can get in the way. They can even get you in trouble. Sometimes it's best just to let passion speak for you.
Four Boundless Stars
I was provided a copy of Art of Seduction in exchange for an honest review.
This novella/short story really surprised me. For how incredibly short it was there was tremendous character development. So much that it felt like I read a much larger book. I think it takes a very skilled author to be able to pull this off.
The story was fun, sexy, and pretty steamy and I enjoyed the back and forth between the two leads.
So why not a 5? Well I will tell you. This has nothing to do with the author, I think she did a fantastic job! This has to do with the price point on the work. Even though I received this work for free I looked at the cost and at a $1.99 (current cost on Amazon) personally I wouldn’t pay $1.99 for 45 pages. I think the author/publisher would do better if she/they dropped the price to either free, .99¢ or join Kindle Unlimited.
This is just my opinion but I have purchased full length novels that I have loved for .99¢ and even $1.99. I understand also that it’s the publishers who set the prices but even with that I have to shake my head. Because these higher prices keep people from reading and discovering really promising authors just like Elaine Radley.
