Twenty-three-year-old Alyssa Moss has lived her whole life in the shadow of her beautiful family. Voluptuous where they are lean, brunette where they are blonde, Alyssa is convinced she is an ugly duckling who will never become a swan. The only thing that sustains her is a recurring dream in which a seductive stranger named Stone worships and pleasures every inch of her. But maddeningly, Stone always disappears just as Alyssa is on the edge of dizzying ecstasy – with a puzzling promise that one day he will find her. That day has come…For years, Stone has searched for the kidnapped first princess of his people – an otherworldly clan whose life-force is sexual energy. Alyssa is that princess, stolen by a rival faction and banished to live on Earth. But now Stone has found her and will return her to her rightful home, one in which she will own the curvaceous body she was born with – and the passionate desire that throbs within it as she learns an endless variety of delicious pleasures and discovers the infinite power she feels when all her cravings are satisfied…
Alyssa Moss has lived a sad life in the shadow of her beautiful family members. One of the only things that keeps her sane is the nightly visits from a beautiful man named Stone, though he always takes her on a wild ride but leaves before the act is consummated. It leaves her frustrated and makes her take matters into her own hands.
For twenty-three years, First Prince Stone of the Klacks has searched for the kidnapped Princess Alyssandra. He can connect with her in her dreams, but he has not found her physical body. Now that he’s located her, he’s over the moon. He tells her that she is the First Princess of Tador, the chosen Queen, and he is her betrothed.
Alyssa can’t believe her luck. She’s never felt at home with her family and now she’s finally found people that look like her and make her feel at home. These people are highly sexual and she feels right at home with them until she hears about the ceremony for her twenty-fourth birthday, her coming of age. That makes her just a tad nervous. She has other things to worry about too, like the fact that the race of people who held her captive for twenty-three years, want her back so they can have their own ceremony and extract revenge on the people of Tador.
From the first erotic word to the last sensual line, Ceremony of Seduction wove a spell around me and didn’t let go. I loved the world that Ms. Ryan created. The people of Tador are highly sensual and very loving. I couldn’t help but fall in love with them all and the way Ms. Ryan portrays them.
I can’t wait for the second book in the series to see how things play out. Tador is a fantastic world that I hope Ms. Ryan plans to write about again and again so I can revisit it each time.

Ceremony of Seduction (Seduction Series, Book 1)my opinion is the book is well written the story line flows and is solid the sex scenes are very very graphic and explicit can’t emphasis that enough. some words in the book may offend some people. this is a real erotic romance and would need to purchased and read by open minded , free spirited people however if you are one of those ,great read and i really enjoyed it. one of those books that you get ratty with yourself for having read it too fast. oh well its book 1 look forward to book 2
