Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

A woman running a prestigious London auction house? Preposterous! But that is exactly what Emma Fairbourne intends to do when her father dies, leaving her the reins of this fabulous enterprise.  Of course, she is not addlepated enough to do this openly and scare away her wealthy collectors.  So she and her friend concoct a deception, hiring a handsome and charming front man who will do her bidding...
 
All would have proceeded smoothly--if it weren't for the maddening interference of Darius, the arrogant Earl of Southwaite, who has been her father's "silent partner" and now shares ownership of Fairbourne's.  An earl, of course, has no interest in running an auction house--and Darius is certainly not interested in allowing the lovely Miss Fairbourne to run it either, her ludicrous scheme notwithstanding.  Clearly the business must be sold.
 
But the headstrong Emma is like no other lady he has ever encountered, refusing to follow his dictates.  Holding his temper in check, Darius decides to attack on a different front.  There is another way to achieve her surrender, one far more pleasurable for both of them...

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas The summary held me back but I`m glad I bought it 12 de marzo de 2012
Por Willread - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle|Compra verificada
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.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Smart, compelling romance between two strong leads 12 de marzo de 2012
Por Fan of Romance - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Libro de bolsillo|Compra verificada
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.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Finally a new HR release that's just the way I like them. 7 de marzo de 2012
Por OLT - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Libro de bolsillo
It's the late Georgian period in England. Emma Fairbourne's father, owner of a well-regarded auction house, has died. Emma's brother Robert, her father's heir, is believed to have drowned in a shipwreck some time ago, so it's up to Emma to keep the auction house afloat. But she's a woman and it's 1798. No one would have any confidence in a business run by a female.

In addition, Darius, Earl of Southwaite, who has been a "silent partner" in the business, now wants Emma to sell it and live off funds invested after the sale. That's what women are supposed to do. They're not supposed to work. But convincing Emma of this will be easier said than done.

Between Darius and Emma there's not just the clash of wills about the auction house, there's also some great sexual tension and attraction, which Emma in particular needs to fight. She must not surrender to Darius' will, in or out of bed. Emma is a great heroine, with just the right amount of gumption, willing to stand up for what she thinks is necessary.

This is an excellent HR, with an interesting and complex storyline, with spies, smugglers, the question of the exact circumstances of Emma's father's death, and the mystery of Emma's brother. Did Robert drown or is he still alive? What all was Emma's father involved in before his unexpected death? Can Emma find the answers to these questions? And can she save the auction house?

Hunter gives us this very enjoyable story and, in addition, her trademark great romance between a rather autocratic (but hunky) hero and a heroine with a backbone and intelligence. Her heroines sometimes can become a bit weak when around the overly strong hero, but Emma here manages to hold her own and confound Darius often. This is the best HR I've read in months.

Be on the lookout for #2 in this Fairbourne Quartet, The Conquest of Lady Cassandra, which will be released in October of 2012. Cassandra is the rather scandalous daughter of a peer and is best friends with Emma. Their relationship in Emma's story is lovely to read and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens to Cassandra in the sequel.

BTW, Hunter puts to great use her Ph.D. in Art History in this HR, with references to famous painters of the time period whose works are being auctioned off at Fairbourne's. This is, as I said, a very complete and satisfying read.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Not So Much A Surrender From Her But From Him 28 de marzo de 2012
Por Brandie Spencer - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Libro de bolsillo
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.

1.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Disappointing...what has happened to my favorite writer? 11 de marzo de 2012
Por Tamara Williams-Reding - Publicado en Amazon.com

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.
