Description

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...show more

Review quote

"Praise for The Conquest of Lady Cassandra: " "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"show more
