Publisher's Summary

She was a sensible woman, he was a man who could drive a woman senseless with desire...
Gareth Fitzallen is celebrated for four things: his handsome face, his notable charm, his aristocratic connections, and an ability to give the kind of pleasure that has women begging for more. Normally he bestows his talents on experienced, worldly women. But when he heads to Langdon's End to restore a property he inherited - and to investigate a massive art theft - he lays plans to seduce a most unlikely lady.
Eva Russell lives a spinster's life of precarious finances and limited dreams while clinging to her family's old gentry status. She supports herself by copying paintings while she plots to marry her lovely sister to a well-established man. Everyone warns her of Gareth's reputation, advising her to lock her sister away. Only it is not her sister Gareth desires. One look and she knows he is trouble. One kiss, however, proves she is no match for this master of seduction.

Surprisingly good!

I expected very little from this title given the reported story line and cover picture, but one reviewer's comments caught my eye, and I decided to go for it. As it happens - I loved it! I loved the narration - particularly the hero's rather deadpan-ish voice - as well as the heroine's sassy one, both contributing to my enjoyment of the story. Really the book is carried by the narration (for me anyway) and the characters. Eva, the heroine, is strong, intelligent and delightfully wicked, and I found myself laughing out loud at the interactions between the characters. The story is interesting enough, given the rather limited options for this genre (which I happen to love anyway), and I especially appreciated that when the plot line ran out, the author let it go and concentrated on the relationship between the lovers - which is the main interest anyway. It's a fairy tale to be sure but one with more humor and self-awareness than most romances, which is why I gave it such a high rating.

Masterfully Written

Reading Madeline Hunter's newest novel reminded me of why I love historical romance--rich historical detail, smart heroine, killer hero, great mystery, and a page turning love story. Highly recommended!
