I really did not like it. Characters were not realistic to their time and the plot didn't hold my interest. I didn't even finish it.

I anticipated this book very much,but found to my knowledge that is wasn't the best. MH has great plots in the story, but I was expecting more intense acttraction between the two...

Ms. Hunter's 'The Saint' is a compelling romantic regency historical novel with an exciting plot and loads of surprises! I literally could not put this book down. Ms. Hunter's lush novel, intriguing characters and smooth prose make for a winning combination. You'll be enthralled while reading this book!

In 1823 Lord Vergil LaClare barely can hold his anger in check while the villainess Jane Ormond sings an aria. He informs Jane, companion to his mousy American ward, Bianca Kenwood, that her plot failed and if she wants to avoid Newgate, she better flee for her homeland immediately. Jane looks Vergil in the eyes and blithely informs him that he got everything wrong as there is no white slave sale as she is Bianca. She also wants her inheritance so that she can study opera.

Stunned, Vergil rejects her plan as being beneath a lady. He ¿abducts¿ her taking Bianca to his country estate where he plans to force her to disavow her singing on the stage. As Bianca and Vergil become acquainted they fall in love. However, can a prim and proper English aristocrat and an independent fiery colonial find a consensus solution that will make both more than they are separately especially with murder and mayhem accompanying them?

THE SAINT is an exhilarating late Regency romance starring an irresistible force and an immovable object. Readers will value highly the gender war between Vergil and Bianca as their battles are witty and fun to observe as long as you remain outside the firing line. The murder mystery and other intrigue add suspense and helps drive the lead couple together, but also takes the audience on a sidestep from the key to Madeline Hunter¿s powerful tale: the third war for American independence.
