Reviews for Seaside Seduction
Serena Janes (5 Stars) Smart, sexy, hunky, self-made CEO Nick Gallero finds his world turned upside down when he rescues sexy bikini-clad Selena Gomez off his Cabo San Lucas beach. Although his attraction to her is immediate, she seems suspicious of his intentions to help her. She suffers short-term amnesia, but has a sick feeling that she might be tied up with some nasty business involving her brother, who was murdered by drug traffickers.
As Selena comes to trust Nick, their chemistry quickens. They discover they have much in common. They both love adventure and they share the belief that all young people can be taught to develop their potential. But just as workaholic Nick falls in love with the feisty school teacher, the druggies show up and kidnap her. Nick must rely on his smarts, his money, and his cutting-edge technology to save her.
This suspenseful erotic romance is told by Nick, in the first person, and this makes the story very exciting. The reader understands he will stop at nothing to save the woman he loves, even if he isn't sure she returns his feeling. The action is fast-paced, the sex hot, and the resolution--naturally--a happy one for the good guys.
If you like your action fast, your setting exotic, and your characters hot, wet and sexy, this story is for you.
Ellen Cross (5 Stars) Nicholas Gallero, CEO of Gallero Avionics, certainly didn't expect to see a woman floundering and then drowning in the sea, from the window of his Cabo San Lucas villa. But he did. Lucky for her, he is not only athletic, but also knows CPR.
The Raven haired beauty he revives is suffering short term memory loss, and as they are drawn closer and more memories unfold for her, Nic has to use his wit as well as everything at his disposal to keep her safe.
Selena Gomez can't remember anything after leaving her class one afternoon. Her knight in shining armor seems almost too good to be true, but as more of her fractured memories return, she learns to give Nic not only her trust, but her heart.
Devonshire's choice to write this piece in the first person view of Nic, is a refreshing change of pace, something unseen of in a M/F romance, yet a delight to read. The chemistry between Nic and Selena quickly heats to burning point and beyond, and you can't help yourself from being drawn in by them as they discover each other, and in turn, themselves.
As with all of her books, Devonshire excels at her attention to detail and her ability to create not only a book, but a complete sensory experience. The suspense draws you in, where it pushes you to an exhilarating crescendo ending filled with twists and turns that keep you guessing what will happen next! A very delicious novel that will leave you breathlessly satisfied, in more ways that one.
Bonlee (5 star) I enjoyed this quickly developing and action-packed story. Plenty of steamy sexual encounters and underlying mystery to make this a page-turner.
Sheryl (4 star) A chance meeting saves her life and brings him love and excitement away from work...with a little touch of James Bond!

An Interview with Sabrina Devonshire
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: Sabrina, thank you so much for talking with us at TRS BLUE. Your featured book is Seaside Seduction. What can you tell us about this stylish romantic suspense?
SD: CEO Nick Gallero is whale watching from the patio of his Cabo San Lucas mansion when he spots a woman struggling in the water. He rushes to rescue her and the trauma of the near-drowning causes her to lose her recent memories. The story is about their developing relationship and the suspense behind how she ended up in Cabo. It was a real challenge writing this book in first person from Nick’s point-of-view. It’s not easy to get inside the head of a man. =)
HH: What do you like best about Selena and why will readers identify with her?
SD: I think today’s super women will identify with Selena’s strong-willed and self-reliant nature. Like many successful women, Selena finds it difficult to accept help from others, even when she needs it most.
HH: What do you like best about Nicholas and why will readers love him?
SD: Nicholas is a workaholic who lacks balance in his life. I think many of us have suffered from this malady from time to time, where we know something’s out of kilter, but some inciting event has to occur to set us straight. In the case of my story, Nick meets Selena and the attraction and protectiveness he feels for her makes him realize what he’s been missing by burying himself 24/7 in his work.
HH: What did you enjoy most about writing this story and how is it different from your other works?
SD: This book’s a lot more trope than anything I’ve written before -- the amnesia, the ocean rescue of the damsel in distress. But I had fun spring boarding off of something that’s been done before and then adding lots of surprising twists and turns.
HH: What do you think will most appeal to readers about this story this holiday season?
SD: This isn’t a holiday story, but it might be a nice escape for readers in snowy and icy places to enjoy a tropical seaside adventure laced with some toe curling sex. This story will warm readers up from the inside out!
HH: How do you feel your own personal experiences influence your writing?
SD: I love the ocean and swimming, so I enjoy writing about seaside locales and I visited Cabo for the first time earlier this year. Knowing the place helps me create a romantic backdrop for the story.
HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?
SD: I just published a new adult Christmas novella last week called Christmas Collision. It’s not sexy, but it’s a healing, feel good story perfect for the holidays. I plan to publish romantic suspense novel Never Let You Go in January.
HH: What are you reading at the moment?
SD: Frostbite (Touch of Frost) by Lynn Rush.
HH: What do you like best about this time of year?
SD: I enjoy strolling around the neighborhood with my family and looking at the Christmas lights. It’s amazing how high tech some of these decorations are becoming.
HH: Where can readers find you online?
SD: My website is www.sabrinadevonshireromances.com and my Twitter handle is @SabrinaDevonsh1
Thanks for the interview opportunity =)
HH: Thank you!
