This review is from: The Surrender of Miss Fairbourne (Mass Market Paperback)
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.
