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 two 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.

Customer Reviews

I found this book hurried, predictable and well, boring.

There was something about the summary that made me click away every time Amazon suggested I buy this book. I guess it was the whole smuggler story or maybe it just seemed like a boring story.

But then I noticed Old Latin Teacher had recommended the book and since her recommendations have given me so many great books up until now, I gave this one a try too. I`m so glad I did (thank you, OLT).

What I really enjoyed about this book - and what will have me buy more of Madeline Hunters books - was how she let love grow slowly. I dislike books where the hero and the heroine fall instantly in love and you have a full book with both of them pining for the other one. I also enjoyed how she let the hero and the heroine get slowly adjusted to each other. They had plenty of things working against them and it would have been entirely incredible if they`d fallen into each other`s arms on page three.

The book was very well written and the characters and situations were credible. There were a lot of emotions in this book but Madeline Hunter showed them in a very clever way which made it all the more lovely to read.

Both hero and heroine were lovable and annoying in just that perfect mixture that makes you want to see things end well for them but you`re not on a sugary overdose after two chapters.

In a world of very predictable and boring historical romances this book offered me something else - something more. I`m glad I found a new author to read because I was afraid I`d run out of good historical romances - having read so many inferior ones lately.

Rare novel where the hero and heroine have believable reasons to initially interact with each other. Emma Fairbourne and Darius Alfreton, Earl of Southwaite, circle each other warily over the Fairbourne Auction House where they have recently become co-owners, due to the recent death of Emma's father. There are sparks of conflict over important business matters, a mystery surrounding Emma's father's past dealings, and a simmering attraction that evolves into a deeper love affair in this smart, sexy romance. Madeline Hunter is a strong writer, and her lead characters feel genuine in their actions and dialogue. While I see some mixed reviews here for this novel, I have to say that "I felt the romance" and look forward to additional installments in this series.

Madeline Hunter understands the formula of couplehood and does a fine job of it in this latest book. She always captures the struggle and humor of a new relationship with an eloquent pen. While the title says one thing; I believe it is the Earl who does the surrendering and is a real hero in doing so. While this book does not have the same romantic and steamy feel of some of her other books it is good and well worth the copy. I look forward to more from this author and highly recommend her previous titles.

Madeline Hunter has always been my favorite Romance Writer and her books are the first I recommend to anyone new to the genre. I am worried, however, that my favorite writer has been diappearing. I thought the last series was marginally good but am very disappointed in this book. I found this book hurried, predictable and well, boring. One of the things I've always loved about Ms. Hunter's characters is that they are so wonderfully complex. The heriones are interesting, complex and powerful because of their behavior, not because the hero describes them as such. I never felt a connection to Emma, didn't feel she seemed particularly outspoken or unique. The hero kept describing her as such, trying hard to put such a spin on a rather boring woman. The plot was so predictable and never really developed. There was little description of the sibling relationship central to the plot - and we were supposed to believe Emma would risk everything for this unexplored and casually mentioned brother. I feel rather disloyal because I have loved Ms. Hunter's writing so much but this whole book was flat, uninteresting and boring. Although the story introduces characters for sequels, they all seem so predictable that this is one series I will be sitting out. But, I always can reread "The Saint" or again fall into the mystery of Easterbrook to be reminded of what I love about Romance and Madeline Hunter.

Emma Fairbourne's father has just passed away. Her brother has disappeared and is presumed dead by most. However, Emma believes he is still alive, and her father's business, Fairbourne Auction House, a rival to Christie's Auction, must be preserved to be passed to her brother in case he does return. It is unheard of that a woman would run an auction, but Emma believes she has no choice. Besides, it is her only means of support, also. She is barely able to pull an auction together in order to pay the bills, and she just found out that her father had a silent partner, Darius, Earl of Southwaite. The Earl does not believe Emma, being a woman, can keep the business profitable, so he wants Fairbourne's sold at once. He also has reason to think that the circumstances of Emma's Father's death might bring scandal that would further devalue the business. He believes that a quick sale is the only way to preserve any assets for Emma and himself. This ongoing disagreement brings romance, danger, mystery, and love as secrets and mysteries unfold. Madeline Hunter can always be counted on to bring us an excellently written story and the plot of this book is especially unique and original. The mystery of Emma's father's death and her brother's disappearance keeps one guessing until the very end. The love scenes are romantic and steamy. The characters are truly people you can believe in. The conversations between the characters make you wish these people were coming over tonite. I really enjoyed every page. And the very interesting secondary characters made me buy the next book in the series within five minutes of finishng the book. Kindle is the greatest invention ever!!!
