Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bestseller Hunter (The Conquest of Lady Cassandra) stumbles with this passionless historical tale of an English spy-hunter and a young woman who's determined to rescue her father from French revolutionaries and bring his nemesis to justice. Former soldier Gavin Norwood, Viscount Kendale, has been following Marielle Lyon for over a year, trying to gather proof that she's a French spy. When she's attacked in an alley, he comes to her rescue and is forced to admit his interest is personal as well as professional. Marielle isn't above using his obvious lust against him, especially if it will help her bring down the evil Antoine Lamberte, who had her father arrested and is still hunting her in France. The plot drags and the story offers few surprises, as all loose ends are eventually wrapped up with minimal effort. Despite the attention to period detail, even Hunter's most ardent fans may have trouble staying awake through this lackluster story. Agent: Pam Hopkins, Hopkins Literary Associates. (Oct.) --This text refers to the mass_market edition.

From Booklist

Underestimating Alban Norwood, Viscount Kendale, almost cost Marielle Lyon her life. At first, Marielle believes the English nobleman following her is nothing more than a handsome nuisance, but Alban quickly disproves this theory when he rescues Marielle from a rendezvous with two of her confederates that turns deadly. As it turns out, Alban has his own reasons for saving Marielle’s life since he believes she is a French spy, and he wants to wring out every ounce of information from her that he can. As a former officer in the British Army, Alban is used to skirmishing with the enemy, but engaging in an ongoing battle of wits with the oh-so-seductive Marielle could very well prove to be a losing battle. Combining a Regency-set romance with spies has always been a popular idea, but few romance writers do it with the graceful sense of élan and subtly sophisticated use of sensuality as RITA award–winning Hunter. --John Charles --This text refers to the mass_market edition.

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.
