"Stellar...vibrant and witty writing." - Booklist

"Another smart pairing and a genuinely romantic ending."-- Publishers Weekly

A sparkling new love story from a historical romance legend, perfect for Bridgerton fans and readers of Sabrina Jeffries, Eloisa James, and Grace Burrowes.

In one life-changing windfall, Rosamund Jameson goes from struggling shopkeeper to heiress--and co-owner of a new business. Not only will her sudden fortune allow her to move her millinery shop to fashionable London, but Rosamund will be able to provide her younger sister with a proper entry into society. The only hitch for resourceful Rosamund is her arrogant, infuriatingly handsome business partner...

Kevin Radnor is shocked that his late uncle, the Duke of Hollinburgh, bequeathed half his company to a total stranger--worse, a beguiling beauty who can only hinder his enterprise. But Rosamund insists on an active, equal partnership, so Kevin embarks on a plan: a seduction that will lead to a marriage of convenience, giving Rosamund the social status she needs, and guaranteeing him the silent partner he desires. Yet as this charismatic gentleman sets his flirtation in motion, he begins to wonder who is seducing whom--and if he can learn to share himself body and mind, without losing his heart . . .

"A book that hooked right into my emotions and gave me what I wanted and needed from a story right now." - Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

"Romance and mystery combine to entertain." - Fresh Fiction

Review quote

Praise for Heiress in Red Silk

"In the second stellar addition to her A Duke's Heiress series, following Heiress for Hire (2020), RITA Award-winning Hunter gifts readers with a marvelously resourceful heroine, inventive storytelling that refreshingly explores an unusual aspect of the Regency world, vibrant and witty writing, and some potently sensual love scenes."

"Hunter's second A Duke's Heiress Regency romance is sure to satisfy fans who fell for Heiress for Hire's thoughtful love story and clever leads...Hunter skillfully renders the difficult conversations and compromises that are the stuff of real-life romance, showing Kevin and Rosamund learning to make decisions together both as lovers and business partner...Another smart pairing and a genuinely romantic ending."
--Publishers Weekly

"Heiress in Red Silk is a book that hooked right into my emotions and gave me what I wanted and needed from a story right now...I adored the heroine."

Praise for the previous works of Madeline Hunter

"Fueled by an abundance of subtle wit and potent sensuality . . . an exquisitely crafted love story by one of the romance genre's masters."

"A rash, adventure seeking heroine and an honorable, take charge hero clash splendidly as passions blaze . . . to the delight of all concerned."
--Library Journal

"Intelligent and memorable. . . . With its tangy dialogue, Pride and Prejudice themes, bits of mystery and nefarious characters, readers may be reminded of Jane Austen."
--RT Book Reviews (Top Pick)

"Hunter . . . spins the intrigues of an enterprising bastard son and a resourceful artist to delightful effect in this excellent launch."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Stellar . . . 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)
