Synopsis (Goodreads):
When Holt Langford, the new Earl of Westover, returns to England after twelve years at sea, he resembles more pirate than nobleman, a far cry from the scrawny youth whose father shipped off to become a man. No one recognizes him and he’ll use this anonymity to enter a game of subterfuge in order to expose the scoundrel who has vowed to destroy Holt’s family business.

Unfortunately, that scoundrel has a devoted daughter - Sophie Seacrest. Sophie can’t deny her attraction to the unorthodox stranger who stirs her blood and makes her think things no proper lady should. Holt and Sophie are drawn into a seductive tangle and just when he’s about to reveal his true identity and his honorable intentions, she discovers the truth and must choose between love and family duty.
Thoughts on The Seduction of Sophie Seacrest: I liked this book overall, but I sort of wish the thing Holt went through as a young man that made him run away to the sea had been explored a little more. Well, wait. That might have been too much for me (because sometimes I just want a light read). Maybe you should just ignore that first sentence.

I did like Holt and I can see why he'd be hesitant to tell Sophie who he was. I don't necessarily agree with it, but I can see how fear of being rejected could cause someone to put off telling the woman they found themselves falling in love with a rather hard truth about who they are and what their initial plan had been.

And Sophie. She put up with quite a bit. Between her father's issues, keeping the business afloat, and protecting her sister, she had a lot on her plate. Given the time she lived in, her actions were admirable.

Enjoyable, but nothing earth shattering. This was a nice book to get lost in when you're looking for something easy and light to read.
