Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* In retrospect, Cassandra Vernham realizes she should have listened to her aunt Sophie and never put anything in writing. Unfortunately, it was because of Sophie that Cassandra sent her scalding letter to Yates Elliston, Viscount Ambury, in the first place. Cassandra desperately needs the money she counted on from auctioning her jewels to keep Sophie safe. Ambury successfully bid on a pair of Cassandra’s most valuable earrings, but weeks after the auction he has yet to pay Cassandra the money he owes her. What Cassandra doesn’t know is that Ambury has his own reasons for withholding payment. Not only does Ambury believe the earrings are hot property, he is almost certain they were stolen from his family. RITA Award–winning Hunter follows The Surrender of Miss Fairbourne (2012) with another stellar Regency-set historical romance that hits all the literary marks. Hunter’s effortlessly elegant writing exudes a wicked sense of wit; her characterization is superbly subtle, and the sexual chemistry she cooks up between her deliciously independent heroine and delightfully sexy hero is pure passion. --John Charles --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Praise for The Conquest of Lady Cassandra:

"RITA Award–winning Hunter follows The Surrender of Miss Fairborne (2012) with another stellar Regency-set historical romance that hits all the literary marks. Hunter’s effortlessly elegant writing exudes a wicked sense of wit; her characterization is superbly subtle, and the sexual chemistry she cooks up between her deliciously independent heroine and delightfully sexy hero is pure passion." --Booklist (starred review)

"Intelligent and memorable... [
The Conquest of Lady Cassandra] is as smart and sharp as the best of Regency romances can be.  With its tangy dialogue, Pride and Prejudice themes, bits of mystery and nefarious characters, readers may be reminded of Jane Austen." --Romantic Times (Top Pick)

Praise for the novels of Madeline Hunter:
“Hunter’s books are so addictive.”—
Publishers Weekly
"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 (starred review)
“Hunter's flowery centerpiece will suit every romance table. Highly recommended.”—
Library Journal
“Hunter gifts readers with a fantastic story that reaches into the heart of relationships and allows her to deliver a deep-sigh read.”—
RT Book Reviews

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

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 three 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.
