One of Madeline Hunters finest! I am so happy to have found this author and have read all of her works, she is an absolute favorite of mine. She certainly gives depth to the characters and just enough to leave you waiting to see how the other characters will emerge in the coming series. Intrigue with the plot, sexual tension between the characters, and much more! Especially an empty ballroom by candle light scene you will never forget!

Great storyline! I typically enjoy Madeline Hunter's novels. She usually uses great character dialogue with intriguing romance. The end of the of book fell a little flat but still a fantastically entertaining story.

Madeline Hunter never disappoints with her stories and characters. Enjoyed this book tremendously. Ms Hunter has another great series going, even though each book stands alone.

I have followed Madeline's writing and series for years. Classic story with good characters and a compelling story line. I hope it starts a series as I want to know more about the others characters and hope the get their own stories.

Ms. Hunter consistently turns out compelling and lushly written stories, and this is another one to add to the keeper shelf. Miss Fairbourne must keep her father’s auction house running, as long as she continues to believe that her brother did not perish while traveling to the continent. Darius, Earl of Southwaite, must force the sale of the auction house despite being a silent partner. After these two determined and headstrong characters meet, the challenge is set to see who will win. Throw in an inconvenient and confusing attraction, and you have all the hallmarks of another great Hunter story. Readers will also be introduced to secondary characters that will peak the curiosity for further stories associated with Fairbourne’s Auction House.

Well written but promises better stories in subsequent books by introducing future characters beter than she usually does heroine surrenders a little too easily one minute ignorant the next oh so willing but hunter still writes a better romance than most in the genre

The Surrender of Miss Fairbourne by Madeline Hunter is a fantastic historical romance. Ms Hunter has given us a well-written book. Her characters are outstanding. Emma is trying to run her father’s auction house after his death while being forced to work with smugglers to ransom her brother’s freedom. Darius is half owner of the auction house and gets in Emma’s way at every turn. This book is loaded with suspense, humor, drama and sizzle and will keep readers glued to this book. I loved reading The Surrender Of Miss Fairbourne and look forward to my next book by Madeline Hunter. The Surrender Of Miss Fairbourne is book 1 of the Fairbourne Quartet Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I read a print copy of this book.

When Emma Fairbourne’s father, Maurice, is found dead at the bottom of a cliff near the family cottage in Kent, the duty of running Maurice’s famous auction house, Fairbourne’s, falls to Emma. Except that Society will never accept a woman running a such a prestigious business! Emma plans to hire a front man – someone handsome and charming who can act as the alleged “proprietor” while Emma silently manages the business behind closed doors. But just as she begins putting her plan into motion, Darius, the Earl of Southwaite, appears declaring his half-share interest in the business and his resolute desire to see the entire auction house closed and sold. The war with Napoleon looms on the horizon and Emma must deal with a bevy of spies and smugglers as well as the infuriating Earl of Southwaite if she has any hopes of keeping her father’s auction house open to the public. The daughter of a tradesman, Emma is a practical person with a preference for speaking very plainly and directly. She is not the type to sugar coat anything and therefore does not understand the ton’s penchant for hiding venom and distaste behind sweet civility. As an Earl and respected member of society, Darius Alfreton is used to his commands being followed. He is used to people turning to him for answers and those same people believing that he can solve their issues. He has strong beliefs about “women’s work” and is unprepared for Emma Fairbourne’s ability and determination to stand up against those beliefs. In true Madeline Hunter fashion, the love between Emma and Darius begins subtly and simmers for a while before the lovers give into their feelings. In fact, the attraction between Emma and Darius was such a slow build that when they did consummate their attraction, I doubled back a few pages to see if I had missed something! The clash of wills between Darius and Emma, almost from their very first meeting, is both funny and infuriating. Both characters are strong-willed and convinced they know what is best. This leads to some entertaining arguments, even after they have begun a physical relationship. I really enjoyed reading The Surrender of Miss Fairbourne. In it Ms. Hunter presents an entertaining and original plot, a steamy romance, and intelligent, witty dialogue. There is just something about Ms. Hunter’s books that strike me as almost poetic. The expressive language and the intricate, intellectual plots are a delight and I look forward to reading more of her works. Originally posted on Plot Twist Reviews [dot] com

Good but not great! I likes it especially at the end. Southwaite got on my nerves a lot he seemed very cold towards everyone but at the end i began to like him. It was an ok read and the introduction to the future book characters was exciting and i cant wait to read their stories. it had mystery and love, so read it and judge for your self
