Overview

Lady of Sin by Madeline Hunter

Award-winning author Madeline Hunter transports readers back to the scandal and intrigue of nineteenth-century England in the enthralling tale of a magnetically sensual man, a virtuous woman, and a love story that will take your breath away. . . .

She arrives at his home without warning or invitation, determined to win him to her campaign to reform women’s rights. Instead, Charlotte, the widowed Baroness Mardenford, ends up being nearly seduced by Nathaniel Knightridge. No woman is safe from the mesmerizing sensual power of the famed courtroom advocate, and Charlotte discovers she is no exception. But does he recognize her as the masked woman who recklessly joined him in forbidden passion a month ago? And how to avoid becoming his Lady of Sin when he decides to pursue her again?

Thank God for writers like Madeline Hunter. Where would the romance genre be without characters like Nathaniel Knightridge and Charlotte Mardenford? Every time I read one of Hunter's books I am shocked by just how much I love her writing. She is just so bloody talented! I can't get over how well she can construct complex characters and weave them so expertly into an equally complex plot. Nathaniel and Charlotte are two perfect examples. During one of Ewan Mclean's (see: Lord of Sin) infamous parties they share one excrutiatingly wonderful sexual encounter, though Charlotte's identity remains obscured by a mask through the duration of their lovemaking. Nathaniel is then left wondering who is this mysterious lady vixen who has him so entranced. One month after their passionate tryst Charlotte shows up on Nathaniel's doorstep requesting his assistance in her campaign for women's rights. (Thank god for Charlotte Mardenford!) Nathaniel has no idea that Charlotte, a woman he finds challenging and unbearably smart, and his mystery goddess are one in the same.They are so perfect for each other that I was quite literally screaming at the pages of my book: 'Oh you idiot! She's the one!! She's the one!!!!' I highly recommend both this book, and this author. Madeline Hunter is definitely one of my favorite writers. I promise you'll love her as much as I do. READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!

Not the best Hunter has written. There are so many character it muddles the story.It was as if, since this is most likely the last of this series, everyone from the other series, plus a multitude of new people had to be added and in a great hurry.Even in the beginning when Charlotte really didn't like Nathaniel, she certainly took him to her bed a lot, so I found it not a very plausible story line.

Lord Nathaniel Knightsbridge is the only aristocrat who practices criminal law. After losing a tough case, Ambrose¿s father visits him to obtain his son¿s pledge to prosecute criminal John Finley for blackmailing Lord James Mardenford, brother-in-law to widow Charlotte. Before the trial, Nathaniel visits John who says he was not blackmailing his lordship, but instead wanted to help him connect with his son, working the streets. Not long afterward John apparently commits suicide as Nathaniel leaves he notices some youngsters nearby with one looking like he is a Mardenford.------ He visits Charlotte and mentions the kid she scorns his efforts as ghoulish, but agrees to meet with the child. She is stunned when she sees the kid who though she denies it, he is clearly a Mardenford. As Nathaniel and Charlotte begin seeing one another especially since he supports her efforts to change the laws of marriage and divorce, they fall in love, which angers James who has plans for Charlotte. Meanwhile as they work together on trying to learn more about the street urchin, she has a secret that she hides from Nathaniel: that they have already made love at Lord Lyndale¿s last masquerade party.------ Madeline Hunter¿s latest sinful tale (see LORD OF SIN) is a terrific Regency romantic suspense starring two likable caring protagonists. Readers will wonder who the ten year old boy is as he looks like a Mardenford offspring yet James denies the kid is his several twists later will reveal a fascinating truth. Ms. Hunter has written another fun historical that grips the audience from the moment Finley speaks out and never slows down until the final clearing of the air.----- Harriet Klausner

Madeline Hunter's new romance is her best yet. She is a superb writer, and this last (maybe?)novel in the series has a interesting plot and complex characterizations. I hated for it to end and will have to wait until the fall for her next book. Hunter is definitely one of the top ten romance writers. This has to win a Rita!
