Though an affair with Cassidy breaks all the rules, Aiden is willing to risk it for the opportunity to awaken her sexuality and introduce her to all the pleasures and sensations of seduction. The fact that he suspects she will alleviate some of his perpetual loneliness has nothing to do with it.

A Siren Erotic Romance
5 STARS: "Cassidy had been without a relationship for a while. While reading a magazine article about pleasing yourself, the hotel owner's son walks up on her. She fears that she will lose her job, but will she gain much more? Cassidy describes herself as being 30 pounds overweight with saggy breasts. She is ignorant about intimacy. She is a character that the reader will love! Of course, Aiden is quite a guy. There is m/f and m/f/m. This book is straight-to-the-point, but it has a great plot. It is short, but the characters are well-developed. I recommend this!" -- Ashley, Review Your Book
5 KISSES: "Cassie is a strong independent woman. She has finally taken stock of her life and realized that it is passing her by. Samantha Lucas is wonderful at bringing emotional and sexual heat together in a great story that will remain with the reader for a long time. I personally loved Cassie a lot. Aiden, though younger than Cassie, knows who he is. He is strong and just needs to be convinced a little that he needs love too. The Seduction of Cassidy Flint warms the heart and soul and is a read you will not soon forget." -- Tina, Two Lips Reviews
5 ANGELS: "I loved The Seduction Of Cassidy Flint. Samantha Lucas does a great job with this story. Cassidy's innocence in the ways of sex is at times funny, but most of all heart wrenching. Here's a woman in her forties who knows less than the average teenager, and yet inside is a seductress just waiting to be brought out. Her transformation from an insecure woman to a confident self-assured one is breathtaking. With the help of Aiden she stretches her wings and flies. Aiden is the ultimate ladies man but he isn't offensive in his attitude. He knows how to please them and he does. He just never lets any of them get close. As he struggles with his possessiveness of Cassidy, we see a man who's been scarred in the past and not willing to allow anyone the chance to hurt him again. He often has a little boy lost feel to him, but Ms. Lucas has no trouble with this mix. The sex between them is hot enough to scorch the page and there's plenty of it. Aiden's friend Garrison is the third party involved in the mnage and this scene is done with taste and skill that Ms. Lucas should be proud of. Although the mnage scene is on the mild side, the overall feel is very erotic and satisfying. But it's not just the sex that develops; Ms. Lucas hasn't neglected the emotional. From beginning to end, The Seduction Of Cassidy Flint is a beautiful story of discovery, lust and love. More than worth the money, put it on your to buy list." -- Rachel C., Fallen Angel Reviews
4 CUPS: "Ms. Lucas created an exceptional story using wonderful characters that seem real with real life flaws. I loved how the author penned the heroine to be natural, not a perfect size and perfect life, but a common ordinary woman with all the insecurities and flaws as all we women have. And Aiden is the perfect match; there was no age difference in their personalities and likes. This story is filled with emotions that any woman can relate to. Pulled together, this entire story gives you everything you want from a romance; wonderful characters, sizzling sex, thrilling plot, and steady interesting dialect. An incredible read." -- Wateena, Coffee Time Romance
4 STARS: "The Seduction of Cassidy Flint seduced me from beginning to end. Cassidy is an atypical heroine - on the other side of forty and single, in every sense of the word. The nervousness and doubts she had when discussing the attraction and potential affair with Aiden was so believable and heart-breaking. I was also touched by the issues Aiden had to deal with and how it affected him and how he reacts with Cassidy. If you are looking for a heart-felt story with hot sex, come get seduced by The Seduction of Cassidy Flint." -- Amy Wynn, Ecataromance
“We can’t go back to my room.” He brushed her hair over her shoulder. “In a half hour the entire hotel would know, and I can’t imagine you want that.”
“Well, no, but...” She took a step back, pushing her spine against the wall hoping to create distance, but it wasn’t working. “We, we, w-we...can’t.”
His lips brushed her temple then softly covered her lips and left her burning for more of their seductive touch even as she wanted to run. She wondered if she would always feel this way now. It was as if her body had been asleep all these years and sadly now he’d awakened it. Now every cell knew what it had been missing—she knew—and her head continued to argue with her body until she felt nauseous. She imagined this would make ignoring the opposite sex a lot harder from here on out.
“Why not, beautiful?”
His thumb made another pass at her cheek, and his voice was so tender she almost wanted to cry. However, even more than that, she wanted to collapse into his arms and never leave. Wanted to let him do whatever he pleased to her and never go back to life as she’d known it.
Reminding herself ruthlessly that was all she needed right now, she pushed him back, wobbled slightly, and then stepped out of his reach.
“Can...can you turn around?”
She dropped her head, staring at her beige shoe against the sea green carpet.
“Because I have to...to...” She made a very small movement of the hand that held her underwear tightly at her side and he laughed…hard!
Haunting would be too good for him.
“I’m sorry.” He held up his hands in a show of innocence. “Truthfully. I shouldn’t laugh, but you take me by surprise. I’ve never known a woman like you. I find you charming and refreshing. I had no idea how much I longed for fresh air until I met you, Cassidy, but baby, you can’t be serious.”
She was appalled. Did his other women put on elaborate displays for him? Come to think of it, they probably did, and she probably seemed like the town prude about now. Sure that her skin was turning another shade of red, she recalled one of her articles entitled Masturbating for Your Man. She’d torn those pages out of the magazine and taken the bag of trash she’d put them in with her to the store and shoved it in the dumpster in the back. She hadn’t the nerve to read the article, but even the title apparently had been enough. So much for her inexperience limiting her imagination.
If she wasn’t going to die, she was pretty sure fainting wasn’t too far out of the question. She was naked under her skirt, and he wanted to know if she was serious.
“Of course I’m serious. Why can’t I be?”
He spread his arms wide and then dropped them with a loud slap against his thighs.
“Because we just had sex.”
Somehow she’d hit the deep end her first time in the pool and hadn’t even known she’d been out for a swim.
“I’m well aware,” she muttered under her breath.
He took a step closer, and she took a step back, banging into that damn wall again. “And I intend to take you home now, strip you naked, and examine every square inch of your beautiful body.” His voice dropped into that sultry silky tone, causing her hormones to betray her. His eyes slowly slid down over her, leaving fire in their wake. She felt as if he’d been able to see right through her clothes.
There wasn’t any way she was going to put on a show for him. She just couldn’t. It wasn’t in her nature. The she remembered her teen years when she wanted to put on exactly this kind of demonstration for a man. She was so confused now she didn’t know what to think. She’d let everything spin too far out of control. Her body wanted one thing, but her mind demanded another.
“There won’t be a freckle I’m not well acquainted with by the time I’m done with you, Cassidy.”
She shivered at his erotic promise. He took a step toward her and once again brushed his finger down her cheek. “I’m going to lick my way from your lips to your toes. I’m going to suck on your nipples and eat your pussy until you scream my name, honey.”
Her knees buckled, but he caught her and pulled her against him.
“Sweetheart, I made you a promise, and I’m not going to let your sudden attack of nerves push me away.”
He brushed that wicked finger down the bridge of her nose. It was everything she’d wanted, but now that it was in front of her, the ramifications scared the shit out of her.
“I think…” She rubbed her forehead before speaking. “No.”
He did a double take, blinked three or four times, and closed his eyes completely. “Are you serious?”
She blinked back tears, not sure if they were out of embarrassment or because he sounded so hurt. “I can’t. I’m not the right kind of woman for you, Aiden. I’m probably not the right kind of woman for any man. I’m shy and insecure and I haven’t a clue what I’m doing. I waited too long and now it’s too late. I’m more than flattered and very tempted by your offer, but I just can’t. Now would you please turn around?”
He opened his eyes and nailed her with a gaze that was nearly black. “No.”
Cassidy inhaled sharply. “But...” She tucked hair behind her ears, for the first time realizing almost all of it had fallen from the clip. She must look ridiculous. She tore the clip from her hair, ran her hand over her head hoping to sort it a little, and grabbed her purse, shoving her underwear in it as she did. “You’re an ass.”
She ran towards the door, just barely making her way through it before the tears fell.

Aiden stood in shock staring at the back of his closed door.
What the fuck had just happened?
He’d been with a lot of women in his life, but none of them had behaved like that one. She’d been a wild woman one minute, as hot for him as he was for her, then as skittish as a newborn foal the next.
He ran his hand over his chin and mouth. Women weren’t so fucking complicated most of the time. The sex they’d just had was hot, and their bodies fit together well. She was a little shy, but he was sure he could bring her out of it. So what was the problem? A little love bite? That didn’t seem right.
He’d never met such a dichotomy of passion and near virginal innocence. Never would have thought it would appeal to him if he had found it, but on Cassidy it was damned irresistible.
So what happened?
A part of him said to let it go, but the more he thought about it the angrier he got. One thing’s for certain… He grabbed the keys from his desk drawer, slamming it shut again. I’m getting some answers.
