Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

When notorious seducer Ewan McLean reluctantly accepts the Scottish earldom left to him after a triple tragedy, he quickly learns that not all his new duties are onerous. Keeping an eye on the welfare of lovely if stubborn Bride Cameron and her three sisters is a pleasure, especially when he's kissing Bride, and his government-backed investigation into a banknote counterfeiting ring proves quite intriguing. But Bride knows one important thing about the counterfeiting ring that Ewan does not: the fake banknote plates can be traced back to her dead father—and to her family, which would earn them forced transportation to Australia. And while she and Ewan can find common ground in each other arms, she well knows an earl wouldn't sully his reputation by marrying a criminal. Fortunately for her, Ewan still possesses a strong disdain for respectability. Snappily paced and bone-deep satisfying, Hunter's books are so addictive they should come with a surgeon general's warning. Each seems to grow a little more lighthearted than the last, yet Hunter (The Charmer) doesn't neglect the absorbing historical details that set her apart from most of her counterparts, engaging the reader's mind even as she deftly captures the heart.

More About the Author

I am a published novelist, a mother and wife, an art historian and a teacher. My first historical romance was published in 2000 and my bibliography shows the list of books since then. My books have been on the bestseller lists of the New York Times, USAToday, and Publishers Weekly (where I have also had three starred reviews.) I have won the RITA award twice and been a finalist seven times. My novels combine strong romances between layered and complex characters with plots that include mysteries or intrigues.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a smart, well written, and satisfying story with interesting leads, a good romance and a compelling mystery. Ewan McLean, carefree lover and man-about-town, promises his uncle the earl, on his deathbed, that he will help the family of a man whom the uncle ruined years before. This takes Ewan, now the new earl, to a remote part of Scotland where he learns that the man has died and left behind four daughters. Ewan and the eldest daughter Bride, a passionate and self-reliant Scottish beauty, are immediately and intensely attracted to one another. They have several intimate encounters, but Ewan does not allow things to go too far because he feels responsible for Bride - responsibility being a rather new concept for Ewan. The sisters are barely making ends meet, so Ewan offers to move them to a comfortable home in Glasgow, but they stubbornly refuse. They insist they can get by on the money they earn from engraving prints from templates, a trade learned from their father. Ewan nonetheless arranges for generous trusts for the three younger sisters (Bride refuses one for herself), and reluctantly returns to London, afraid that he will compromise Bride if he stays.

Weeks pass and Ewan cannot get Bride out of his mind. Then suddenly she appears on his doorstep, sisters in tow, having been evicted from their home. What Ewan does not know is that Bride has another reason for coming to London. She is trying to find out who stole her late father's templates for forged banknotes, before she and her sisters can be implicated. What Bride does not know is that Ewan, an expert on engravings, is investigating reports of forged banknotes on behalf of the government. With deception and intrigue swirling around them, can true love prevail for this passionate pair?

I was really suprised by some of the other reviews, especially the woman who said she had to take a shower after reading the book. Based on their opinions, I guess I am an immoral pervert because I had no objections to the hero, he was no worse than some of the other male leads in books that have gotten rave reviews. Madeline Hunt is one of the best writers I have read in a long time. Her 'bad' books are way better than the average historical or regency books out there.

Ewan McLean is a grand seducer of women. All he cares about is enjoying the pleasures of the flesh and adding to his collection of erotic art. Until he grants the death bed wish of his uncle to right an old wrong, that is. Now Ewan is off to Scotland to grant this request and his life changes abruptly as a result.

Bride Cameron is the sole support of her family that consists of herself and three younger sisters. They make their living by doing engravings using their father's old equipment, and by a secret mission that could get them into big trouble if ever discovered. The last thing she needs is an overbearing man coming into their home with the strange idea that he should support them.

Sparks fly between Ewan and Bride from their first meeting, and those sparks grow into a burning desire as they journey back to London to try and track down the person who is forging money and priceless works of art. As Bride works her way in to Ewan's heart, he begins to wonder if his life would be better with her in his bed... as his wife.

Madeline Hunter has written another lush historical to delight her many fans. In this story she even gets to demonstrate her remarkable knowledge of art, which is the focal point of her career outside of her books. It is more than evident that she knows her stuff where the history of the art of printing is concerned. Readers will love to see the results of the compilation of both of her careers in this book.

Readers who have read previous books in the Seducer series will remember the carefree Ewan. It is delightful to see how he grows and changes throughout this story. Bride is a force to be reckoned with as well, with a fiery temperament to match her flame-colored hair.

I was extremely dissapointed with this novel. Madeline Hunter and Liz Carlyle are my favorite historical romance authors, so I was really looking forward to Lord of Sin. I disregarded the less than glowing reviews, thinking I was safe with Ms. Hunter. That was a mistake, and I have seen for myself that this was an uninspired effort by the author. I did not like the hero nor the heroine, I could not get close to them, and I did not believe in their relationship. These are other issues I have with the novel:

1. I can appreciate a hero who is a rake, but I found Ewan disgusting and shallow. Someone who gets excited by having sex in front of others, who is (in)famous for organizing and participating in orgies, who collects expensive erotic art that cannot be displayed freely, who abhors responsibility, and who is completely amoral is not hero material for me. Eeewww! And then the reader is supposed to believe that this "hero" will be content in a regular, monogamous relationship, ugh!

2. The heroine didn't fare much better. She held on to her secrets for way too long, trying my patience. It seemed to me that the conflict was too contrived and took over the romance to the point where it overwhelmed the development of the characters and their relationship.

3. The setting of the story and the information about engraving and forgery was interesting, but extremely detailed. This was another element that only served to dilute the romance that was supposed to be the central part of the story.

4. The "efforts" of the h/h to be discreet about their relationship seemed pointless and useless. How did Bride expect her sisters to be virtuous when she was carrying on a sexual relationship under their noses for the second time?
