    Fast-paced, sinister, and intense!

    In this latest novel by Johansen, The Persuasion, Eve and Joe’s daughter, Jane MacGuire finds herself the target of a ruthless killer obsessed with owning the priceless Cira’s treasure, and begrudgingly in need of some assistance from her ex-lover Seth Caleb, a man of many special talents and a secretive past of his own. The prose is ominous and tight. The characters are multilayered, unique, and resourceful. And the plot is a suspenseful tale full of familial drama, tension, obsession, death, kidnapping, cruelty, desperation, violence, and murder, all interwoven with a sliver of the supernatural. Overall, The Persuasion won’t disappoint fans of Johansen and the Eve Duncan series who’ve come to expect and love her menacing tales, action-packed plots, and smidges of heat.

    THE book I've been waiting for

    I am a huge Eve Duncan fan, but this book is her daughter, Jane’s, story. It is a story that I’ve been waiting for. I have been craving more about this amazing girl, who had a rough start in life until she found an amazing family to love and protect her. Her talents as an artist have been bragged about in past books, her love of Michael (her brother) has never been in doubt, and her attraction to Seth has been intriguing. Persuasion is THE book that I have been waiting for. Jane has no idea that she has been being watched from afar by a mad man for quite some time. In The Persuasion she finds out and that mad man decides that it is time to take steps towards making Jane his. Of course, Seth must come riding in to keep her safe. The relationship between Seth and Jane is so intense. With their unique histories, their tough lives, and their fears of being hurt it cannot be easy. All of that makes their relationship their own. They know how much they can let each other in and how much they can allow themselves to love. Their relationship is so strong, so true, and so real that it is one of my favorites throughout this series. The fact that there is a mad man in this story brings in Eve and Joe, who are characters that must appear in each book in this series. In true Eve and Joe style they come to show their love for both Michael and Jane. They know that their children are unique and must not be taken for granted. They let their children shine in their own talents and nurture them in ways that are special for each of them. Eve and Joe are amazing parents, wonderful protectors, and shining examples of what a family should be. Persuasion is part of the Eve Duncan series, which is a wonderful series. The wonderful part is that you can pick up any book in the series and start reading. Each book has its own story, it's own ending, and is not contingent on stories that were told before it. Some of the storylines carry over but Iris Johansen does an amazing job of giving enough back story to keep new and old readers up to date on what is happening.

    Persuasion

    Not as good as the book this book followed smokescreen. This one was a bit too fanciful too a bit bordering on a fairytale I prefer a book based on reality. I enjoyed it but I is not my favouite
