Seduced in Spain

by Devika Fernando


Sometimes all that two people need to make things right is a second chance…

Nine years ago, Alejandro broke Emily's heart, but a business trip to Spain forces her to be in his company again. Old wounds are reopened and new temptations complicate things even more. When life leaves her no choice, she realizes that sometimes the heart doesn’t listen to the brain. Will Emily win the battle against her forbidden desire and Alejandro’s charm, or will history repeat itself?





Emily suppressed a squeak. Speak of the devil… Alejandro stood so close their arms touched, towering about over her and also staring up at the sky while breathing in deeply. His scent and heat and nearness flooded and floored her. She swallowed and answered with a wobbly “yes”.

“Next time I make you labor like a slave-driver, please let me know,” he said. “You must be regretting you accepted the job.”

“No, I don’t.”

The words were out before she could stop herself, and she realized their truth. All complications and the nagging voice in her brain aside, she did not regret her decision.

Alejandro turned and peered closely at her. The illumination from the street lamps nearby made his chiseled features stand out, his prominent cheek bones and strong jaw looking as hard as if cut out of marble. Oh yes, he was a statue of a man. One of those Greek gods, a modern-day Adonis, but from Spain rather than Greece.

Dammit, there she went again!

He was still staring at her. Was he trying to figure out whether she had merely given the appropriate reply or really meant it? Not ready to face any deep discussions, Emily hitched the strap of her bag higher up her shoulder. Alejandro’s gaze followed the movement, and an odd look crossed his face. With a half-smile, he said softly, “You’re still doing that.”


His smile intensified. He reached out and slowly traced a long finger across the strap of her bag until it rested lightly on the back of her hand. She realized only then that her fingers had been clenching and unclenching around the leather strap, tugging and twisting.

“I remember how you used to adjust your bag and worry the strap every time you were nervous those days,” he said in the same soft voice laced with an emotion she couldn’t place.

His finger was still on her hand, a feather-light touch that had her frozen. His gaze traveled back to her face, and she drowned in it. Somewhere deep inside, the lines crisscrossing her broken heart cracked upon, slowly but surely. Why? Why did he have to drag up memories like a child worrying a dried scab and making a half-healed wound bleed again?

While I'm buying this book to keep, so I can read it again, I did receive an ARC so I could review it and give you an idea of the fun that awaits you...

Seduction in Spain occurs in Spain, but we not only wander about Spain, we go back and forth in time, so sit back for a fun and bumpy ride.

Our heroine, Emily, begins the story as the Personal Assistant of an ‘over-friendly boss’—if you know what I mean. They attend a conference of all the major players in the tourism/hotel business. There she meets the love of her past, Alejandro, the man who broke her heart, who claimed he loved her one day then never spoke to her again.

When we get into his head, we are surprised to discover his memory of the past is quite different.

Clearly someone has mixed up the past… but fixing the past is never easy, especially when so much resentment resides in them both and certain people still wish to keep them apart.

Every book I’ve read by Devika Fernando I’ve loved, and this one is no exception.

The story has more than one mystery to solve before the two former lovers can be together. It will keep you entertained from beginning to end. I read it in one sitting.


Almost as soon as Devika Fernando could write, she imagined stories and poems. After finishing her education in Germany and returning to her roots in Sri Lanka, she got a chance to turn her passion into her profession. Having lived in Germany and in Sri Lanka with her husband has made her experience the best (and the worst) of two totally different worlds - something that influences her writing. Her trademark is writing sweet and sensual, deeply emotional romance stories where the characters actually fall in love instead of merely falling in lust.

What she loves most about being an author is the chance to create new worlds and send her protagonists on a journey full of ups and downs that will leave them changed. She draws inspiration from everyone and everything in life. Besides being a romance novel author, Devika is a faithful servant to all the cats and dogs she has adopted. When she's not writing, she's reading or thinking about writing.


Book 2 of the Romance Round the World Series can be read as a stand-alone with a happy ending. The same applies to Book 1, Saved in Sri Lanka.
