Seven years ago, Leona Montgomery’s sensuality was awoken by a mysterious young adventurer full of dark chaos and sinful inclinations.
When she meets him again, their attraction reignites immediately, but he is much changed. Arrogant, masterful, and determined to seduce her, he now appears to have leashed the chaos and tamed the darkness.

As regular readers of this blog knows, if there is a historical author that languid moi is probably fangurlish for, it’s Madeline Hunter. I haven’t absolutely loved everything she has written (in fact, I was lukewarm on her last two books) but there is something in her writing that always resonate with me, even as I want to strangle the heroine/hero.
Last week, Madeline was kind enough to meet me for coffee and we talked for about 90 minutes about various subjects from 19th Century Macau to the Marquess of Queensbury to the lamented demise of Bantam’s Loveswept line of series contemporary romances to authors and blogs to Iris Johansen’s historicals and to the overall brilliance of Mary Balogh’s traditional regencies, specifically A Precious Jewel. She was pretty much as I expected: straight-shooting and intelligent and introverted.
As for news, well, she wouldn’t tell me much about her next book coming up – The Sins of Lord Easterbrook – beyond what anyone could gleam from the preview of it at the end of Secrets of Surrender. She did add a new excerpt from it on her website which you can find by clicking here.
I did ask her about her next series after this one. She is currently shopping a four book series and she will be staying in the period of the 1820s (sorry, Medieval fans).
