Foreword

Seductively speaking, you're a pretty hot commodity. Don't look over your shoulder. I'm talking to you, Mr. or Ms. Average. Seduction isn't some mysterious power that only a select few have. It's a human quality. It's not a question of whether you've got it or not—you do—it's how you're going to draw out the tempter or temptress that lies within.

This is something I have made it my business to know all about. Although my most recent book, Just Between Us Girls: Secrets About Men from the Mayflower Madam, and my 4-hour seminar of the same name are directed toward women, I know the need to keep things intriguing is one that concerns both genders. How can you become irresistible? How do you get someone's attention, or keep the attention of the person you're with? How do you discover your sexual personality and how can you make it work with the object of your desire? Good questions. And in The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Art of Seduction you'll find good answers. Author Janet "The Love Coach" O'Neal takes you step by step through all the phases of seduction—from attracting someone's attention, to pre-date jitters, to setting the stage for a seduction scene that will knock the socks off of your lover-to-be (or long-time companion, for that matter). O'Neal's expertise will help bring out the ultimate seductress or seducer in you, but with only the most positive (and healthy) results.

Seduction isn't a matter of genetics—it's an art. And like any art that's worth appreciating, you'll need to put a little work into your finished product. The great thing is, it's going to be more fun than toil. You won't just walk away from these pages feeling sexy, you'll feel self-confident. What's sexier than that? Hmmm.. .why not crack open this book and find out?

Happy seducing,
