Review & Giveaway – Seducing Helena (Calendar Men #3) by Ann Mayburn


Supermodel Helena Flores didn’t plan to fall in love with her Marine pen-pal, but that’s exactly what happens when she starts corresponding Seth Morgan. He’s funny, kind, and so hot she can’t stand it. In an effort to see if Seth can like her for her who she is on the inside—and not just as a swimsuit model—Helena pretends her job in the fashion industry is behind the camera rather than in front of it. But soon it’s time for Seth to come home and Helena tells him the truth, hoping he can forgive her deception.

Seth Morgan had been falling in love with his sweet and feisty pen-pal for months. When he finds out who Helena is, he wonders what she sees in him. Worse, when he meets her in the flesh, the reality is even better than his fantasy. But what can you do to keep the girl who can have anyone? Seth hopes the answer is a seduction so thorough and pleasurable she won’t ever want him to leave. photo Goodreadslips.jpg

My Review:

Seducing Helena is Ann Mayburn’s third installment of her Calendar Men series. I have not read the first two books of the series, but I found Seducing Helena worked great as a stand-alone and I was not at all confused with the story, nor were there any missing gaps I felt were left unanswered.


In Seducing Helena, we meet Helena, a supermodel who just hasn’t been lucky in love. All of her past relationships have ended because the men she dated couldn’t handle her fast-paced and demanding life.

While on a job, she talks to a friend who introduces her to Seth, a U.S. Marine deployed overseas, via a photo. Liking what she sees, she starts up a correspondence with Seth, and things quickly escalate from friendly penpals to sexxy scorching hottt writing between the pair – but there’s just one drawback. Helena doesn’t reveal to Seth who she really is, fearing he won’t want anything to do with her because of her fame.

Helena holds out in disclosing her true identity until Seth tells her  his deployment is over and he’s coming home. Helena sees no way out and confesses who she really is. Instead of running away, Seth can’t believe his good luck and is floored upon hearing the news.

Helena is relieved with his reaction, and when they finally meet face-to-face, she can’t keep her hands off the sexy ex-Marine. But as Seth keeps her company, he gets exposed Helena’s real life: crazy fans, hectic work schedules, and hanging out with bigger than life celebrities. Will Seth be able to navigate Helena’s world and hold his own? Can he find a job and provide Helena with more than just amazing orgasms or will their love story crash and burn?
