Overview

HER PRIDE.
HIS PREJUDICE.
THEIR PASSION.

As headstrong as she is beautiful, Lady Cassandra Vernham defied convention when she refused to marry the man who had compromised her. Now, estranged from her family, Cassandra struggles to make ends meet. A recent auction of her jewels has brought her a modicum of relief, but one of the most valuable lots was never paid for by the highest bidder: handsome, rakish Viscount Ambury. Cassandra needs that money badly, and not to buy a new hat.

Ambury has only to look at Cassandra to begin imagining her in his bed… He has not settled that outstanding debt for a reason. He suspects that the expensive baubles were stolen, perhaps even by Cassandra herself. Erotic fantasies about her notwithstanding, the vixen is not to be trusted, for she has already destroyed his good friend—the man she refused to marry who later lost his life in a duel, which Ambury suspects was fought over Cassandra. But nothing is as it seems…

As the seductive lord and the scandalous beauty are drawn together, the passion that flares between them will illuminate shocking secrets that will change both their lives forever…

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
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

    Another excellent book from Madeline Hunter

    This is the story of Yates, the heir to an earldom, and Cassandra, a lady who is believed to have been the cause of his friend's death by dueling. Cassandra lives on the fringe of respectable society after being "ruined" by failing to marry the gentleman responsible. 6 yrs after her fall from grace, Cassadra starts spending time with Yates as they deal with an issue concerning earrings of hers that he purchased at an auction. She becomes compromised again and agrees to marry him if he will help her with a family problem. They marry and try to navigate their new marriage and deal with family issues from both sides. Excellent primary and subplot. Great character develpment. 4+ steam.

    Welll written historical romance novel. The mystery and intrigue

    Welll written historical romance novel. The mystery and intrigue were marvelously done witha  surprising conclusion that
     clears everything up at the end. Madeline Hunter is a wonderful writer. I'm looking forward to reading more of her books.

    This book isn't available yet!

    Being a fan of Madeline Hunter, I am sure this book will be as great if not better than her previous stories, but it is not available until September 25,2012. Not even as a preorder. I would order this book that far in advance if it were available. Why the request for a review? I adore Madeline Hunter and I have most of her work on nook or in paperback.
