The Spinster's Guide to Scandalous Behavior

The Seduction Diaries

About the Book

In New York Times bestselling author Jennifer McQuiston's enticing new Seduction Diaries entry, a mysterious journal may provide a potential spinster with instruction—or lead her to her heart's desire

Free-spirited Lucy Westmore isn't yet a spinster, although she fully intends to be. Fortunately, an eccentric aunt has left her both a diary detailing the secrets to spinsterhood and a cottage in Cornwall. Unfortunately, an insufferable marquess is angling for her prize! Turning Lord Thomas Branston down flat should be easy. So why does this man who won't take no for an answer make Lucy's body and soul sigh yes?

Thomas knows the real value of Heathmore Cottage, and he has no intention of letting some silly Society miss get her hands on it. He'll simply have to charm Lucy into selling. But the clever young woman he encounters, first in London, then en route to Cornwall, stands stubbornly on her own two (quite lovely) feet. And now, Thomas can think only of sweeping her off them.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“A true romantic story that will leave you far more than satisfied.” —Night Owl Reviews, Top Pick

“McQuiston continues her Seduction Diaries series with another smart, sexy, utterly delightful and insightful tale. Readers will certainly take the independent heroine and wounded hero to their hearts... There’s emotional depth, wonderful character growth and passion, adding just what readers need to lift their spirits.” —RT Book Reviews (top pick)

Lucy’s feminist tendencies are refreshing, if somewhat surprising, given the Victorian ideas held by her parents. Thomas is a complicated and likable character, and the book has multiple threads of mystery that are not easily solved by the reader. An absorbing read. —Kirkus Reviews

“Her impulsive nature and his gentle ways will endear the pair to readers, who will be cheering as Lucy and Thomas learn to trust one another and stop fighting their attraction...For fans of historical romance with feisty, feminist female characters who have soft spots for hunky lords.” —Booklist
