Receiving a secret message announcing that she has been targeted for seduction, lingerie boutique owner Leticia Vane refuses the advances of professional flirt Hughie Venables-Smyth in her pessimism about romantic love. By the author of Elegance. Original. 45,000 first printing.

HARPERCOLL

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Perfume Collector comes this charming, witty novel about a “professional” flirt.

"I’m going to seduce you.”

Tantalizing words written on an ivory card. It is the first clue that will lead an intrigued and intriguing London lady on an odyssey of sensual experience designed to awaken her romantic nature.

Out-of-work actor Hughie Venables-Smythe has found a profitable new outlet for his talents. He is hired, often by distraught husbands, to flirt with wives who are feeling neglected in their relationships. His current seductive campaign is focused on Olivia, the spouse of a narcissistic billionaire, and the lady is responding quite nicely to the cream-colored missives he secretly leaves for her. So nicely, in fact, that Hughie decides to employ a similar technique—and shockingly similar messages—in his pursuit of his own heart’s desire: the aloof and charming lingerie designer, Leticia. But the canny, professional flirt’s brazen anonymous intrusions into the lives of two women are about to set in motion a series of remarkable events that no one could have anticipated—setting the stage for shocking revelations about love, friendship, and domestic bliss.

I like how the whole story is connected, reminds me of the six degrees of seperation thing, which I think is what the author was going for.. but it was slightly predictable and at times boring.
