3 posts | 1 read | 4 to read
A woman defies expectationsincluding those of an arrogant earlin the first regency romance in New York Times bestselling author Madeline Hunter's Fairbourne Quartet. Despite the limits of her sex, Emma Fairbourne intends to run her late father's prestigious London auction house. Of course, she's not addlepated enough to do it openly and scare away her wealthy collectors. Instead, she and her friend concoct a deception, hiring a handsome and charming front man who will do her bidding... All would have proceeded smoothlyif it werent for the maddening interference of Darius, the arrogant Earl of Southwaite, who was her fathers silent partner. Darius has no interest in running an auction houseand he's certainly not interested in allowing the lovely Miss Fairbourne to run it either, her ludicrous scheme notwithstanding. But 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...

A somewhat different Regency romance that involves art, smuggling, and spies. The ending was predictable, but with an interesting, ironic twist. This story also has one of the most admirable heroes in any romance I‘ve read. There were several times when I wanted to shake the heroine and say, “are you crazy, the way you‘re treating him? Wake up! He loves you!” Picture is of a mango tree in bloom that we passed on our walk.

Helen19 I read this as ‘ant smuggling‘ at first and thought that‘s quite different to any regency novel I‘ve read! 2y

Maybe a little #romantsy will jolt me out of my reading slump. A new author for me.
