Both Ambrose and Alexandra want nothing to do with falling in love, but will a “gentleman’s bet” cause the stakes to be higher than either bargained for? Find out in RAKEHELL’S SEDUCTION, book 2 in Lauren Smith’s Seduction series.
HE’S MADE A DANGEROUS WAGER
Ambrose Worthing is no gentleman. He’s a proud cold-hearted rake who’s determined to stay a bachelor forever. He enjoys bedding a different woman every night without the risk of falling in love. When he hears about a wager over the seduction and ruination of the daughter of his father’s best friend, he knows he must intervene. Committing himself to the bet, he agrees to seduce Lady Alexandra Rockford—for her own good. He never expected the lady in question to be a beautiful, fiery creature who has passions of her own that call to his guarded heart.
SHE’S VOWED NEVER TO FALL IN LOVE AGAIN
Alexandra Rockford has sworn off men, her heart still broken from the false promises of a childhood sweetheart who left her to marry an heiress. When she stumbles into Ambrose outside of a country ball, she knows the rake is trouble. His smile, his touch, his forbidden kiss are all too tempting but being with him would ruin her. Determined to enjoy herself without falling in love, Alex can’t help but let her defenses down with the too charming rake. But when she discovers Ambrose is seducing her to win a bet, it will take everything Ambrose has to prove to her that he is worthy to love her.

All About Romance – The Rakehell’s Seduction Character Interview with Ambrose Worthing
- Did you ever think that your life would end up being in a book?
Answer: “My life in a book? I shudder to think how the writer discovered what I was up to… Lord, a book. I hope she doesn’t know what I’ve been up to with Alexandra when the two of us are alone. She doesn’t know about that does she?” Ambrose glances around the room suspiciously as though expected Lauren to pop out from behind a settee.
- What are your favorite scenes in your book: the action, the dialog or the romance?
Answer: “My favorite scene?” Ambrose chuckled. “I suppose any moment where I get Alexandra alone. She’s positively addicting, a fine brandy I can’t drink enough of, you know what I mean?” He smiles but then he sobers. “The ending, perhaps the ending is my favorite. Where she forgives me for accepting that bloody bet to seduce her, and she tells me she loves me. That,” his voice goes hoarse. “Is my favorite scene.”
- What do you like to do when you are not being actively read somewhere?
Answer: “Chasing Alexandra to the ends of the earths. I’d go anywhere and do anything for that woman. I want to spend the rest of my life with her. She loves the country, so I suppose we’ll spend a fair amount of time riding and walking.” Ambrose grins. “Among other things.”
- Are you happy with the genre your writer has placed you in?
Answer: “Regency romance, that’s where she put me in isn’t it? I suppose so, wouldn’t know where else I’d belong. I’d not be much use in the future.” Ambrose chuckled.
- Do you like the way the book ended?
Answer: “Yes, I absolutely do. She let me stay with Alexandra. My life with her is just beginning.”
- Would you be interested in a sequel, if your writer was so inclined?
Answer: “I suppose I would, although I imagine she would much rather focus on dealing with my friend Vaughn, he certainly needs a happy ending. That man has quite a problem and I imagine the solution is Miss Perdita Darby.” Ambrose grins mischievously.
- What do you do for a living?
Answer: “I’m an English gentleman. It’s a rather easy job, I simply collect the earnings on my family’s estates and invest them to continue the function and the support of the estate.”
- What is your greatest fear?
Answer: “Losing Alexandra. I lost her, for a time and it was my worst living nightmare. She is the only that matters to me. I live and breathe just to be with her.” He clears his throat and his eyes mist slightly. “A life without her isn’t life at all.”
