Publisher's Summary

The first novel in a magnificent new quartet of historical romances.
Audrianna Kelmsleigh is unattached, independent-and armed. Her adversary is Lord Sebastian Sommerhays. What they have in common is Audrianna's father, who died in a scandalous conspiracy-a deserved death in Sebastian's eyes. Audrianna vows to clear her father's name, never expecting to fall in love with the man devoted to destroying it.


What the Critics Say

"Richly spiced with wicked wit and masterfully threaded with danger and desire, the superbly sexy first book in Hunter’s new Regency historical quartet is irresistible and wonderfully entertaining." (Booklist)

Entertaining enough

In the beginning, I had a hard time keeping my interest in the book. It started okay but something was missing. I continued to listen and then the story took off and I had a hard time putting down my iPod so I could do things I needed to. Once the story got going, it definitely kept my interest. The plot was interesting, the romance sweet, and there are enough subplots and twists to keep you on your toes. The two characters were actually quite refreshing. I enjoyed their interactions and the thoughtfulness of each. I also enjoyed that the female character had a backbone. In sum, I'd say this book is worth your credit.

Sooo Sloooow

I've never read or listened to anything by Madeline Hunter before and I won't do it again. The story is sluggish, the character's cold and hard to like, and the mystery so strung out that it lost any spark of interest.
