Lady Charity Baxendale has long dreamed of becoming a renowned portrait painter. After she’s received two significant commissions from esteemed family members, a rakish Scottish baron commissions her to do his portrait, and she feels she is one step closer.
When Robin, Lord Stanberry, with whom Charity has had a long friendship, asks her to marry him, she must choose between marriage and her career. She refuses him, for he is heir to a dukedom, and Charity fears that not only would she be unsuited to life as a duchess but also that her burgeoning career might end before it begins. And besides, Robin has made no mention of love.

Due to tragic unforeseen circumstances, Robin is now the Duke of Harwood. Robin feels himself unfitted for such a position. He was perfectly content living as a Viscount in Tunbridge Wells, writing a manuscript on ornithology. He’d hoped to have Charity at his side by the time he took his place at Harwood Castle, for her pragmatic nature and strength of character would be of enormous help to him. Should he have thrown himself at her feet and declared an undying love? Charity would have seen through it, for that was not the sort of friendship they enjoyed. But her refusal has brought him lower than he’d thought possible. Can he change her mind, despite the distance that now lay between them?



The Seduction of Lady Charity by Maggi Andersen
reviewed by Heather

Lady Charity Baxendale is an artist, and a good one. She is very much beloved by her father, mother and sisters. Charity is also the fourth youngest sister and her father has given up trying to get his daughters to marry who he wants and lets them marry for love. 
Robin is Charity’s childhood friend. He is also a Viscount who inherits a dukedom. Before his
departure to the dukedom’s seat, Robin proposes to Charity. She rejects him as she feels that he needs time to adjust to being the duke. But there is a glitch in the system when a possible heir turns up. As he is trying to learn more about his new role, he misses Charity, and stops writing her letters to cause some reaction. There is a reaction but not what he expects.
Charity and her family are in the area and visit. Charity hears that Robin is ‘almost’ engaged and decides to back off.
I like how these stories have developed and the involvement of the whole family in each other’s lives. There are not too many series that do this. It is great to see there is little angst between the sisters and the parents which makes the stories flow. I have really enjoyed these stories and will now have to wait patiently for Mercy’s story.
