Book Description

1 May 2007
Dangerous. Sensual. Handsome as sin. Meet Hayden Rothwell, the shamelessly erotic hero of The Rules of Seduction and author Madeline Hunter’s most irresistible alpha male yet: a man of extraordinary passion and power, a man who can bring out the seductress in any woman.…

He enters her home without warning or invitation–a stranger of shadowy motives and commanding sensuality. Within hours, Alexia Welbourne is penniless, without any hope of marriage. Until Hayden Rothwell takes her to bed. When one impulsive act of passion forces Alexia to marry the very man who has ruined her, Hayden’s seduction of Alexia is nearly complete. What Alexia doesn’t know is that her irresistible new husband is driven by a secret purpose–and a debt of honor he will risk everything to repay. Alexia is the wild card. Reluctant to give up their nightly pleasures, Hayden must find a way to keep Alexia by his side...only to be utterly, thoroughly seduced by a woman who is now playing by her own rules.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Easterbrook Saga begins 20 Aug 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
having read the Sins of lord Easterbrook which was wonderfully atmospheric, I resolved to read the complete set and so bought this, lord Hayden and Alexia's story and was not disappointed. The clash of personalities and temperaments was most intrigueing, the deliberate twists and turns were fascinating, and the gentle love growing was simply devine. The introduction of characters that would play a part in all the other novels was masterful and allowed me to suspend belief throughout the whole novel, Delightful.

4.0 out of 5 stars First in the Easterbrook quartet 4 April 2010
By Marshall Lord TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first of a quartet of Georgian romances involving members or friends of the Rothwell family, the head of which is the Marquis of Easterbrook.

The quartet consists of

1) This book, "The Rules of Seduction"
2) "Lessons of Desire"
3) "Secrets of Surrender"
4) "The Sins of Lord Easterbrook"

At the start of the book, Alexia Welbourne experiences financial ruin for the second time in her life. After her father had lost all his money shortly before his death, she had been taken in by her cousins, the bankers Benjamin and Timothy Longworth. Benjamin had then gone off to fight on the side of the Greeks in their war of independence, and been reported to have died. Now his former friend Lord Hayden Rothwell, the devilishly handsome brother of the Marquis of Easterbrook, arrives to see Timothy Longworth.

Timothy tells Alexia and his sisters that Rothwell has ruined him: Alexia finds herself homeless and penniless and is encouraged to believe that this is all the fault of Hayden Rothwell's cruel whim. As part of the restitution for the money Tim has lost, Lord Hayden takes the Longworth's main home and gives it to his aunt and cousin as payment for their losses. Offered a position as governess and companion to Rothwell's aunt and cousin in the home where she had previously been a member of the family, Alexia has little choice but to accept.

4.0 out of 5 stars Consistently good! 2 May 2010
By Loupop
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Madeline Hunter produces yet another good read! I have yet to be disappointed with this author who is consistently masterful in this genre. This story kicks off another series of compellingly romantic novels. Hunter's strength as ever lies in her ability to hold the attention of the reader by creating a complex historical backdrop and plot in which to immerse a beautifully romantic tale. She has an eye for detail both historically but also in the behaviour of her characters. It's the small things, the little details that makes one remember a scene from one of her books and pick said book up to begin again. I find myself keeping all of Hunter's books and revisiting them often.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent love story 24 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really enjoyable, well written and with two likeable main characters and a host of excellent secondary ones. Unlike a lot of stories, this one had a plot that actually hung together and made some sense. The love scenes are passionate and scorching hot - these two have explosive chemistry. And its an interesting match - the straightlaced, always in control governess/companion and the rakish lord. There is the necessary massive misunderstanding that sets them at loggerheads for much of the book and some very surprising twists in the tale towards the end. I really enjoyed it, will be keeping it and reading it again. And crucially now I want to read the others in the series. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 25 July 2013
By Venetia
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first of M. Hunter's books that I've read and will not be the last. It was a pleasure to read an historical romance with a well-constructed plot and I thought that the over-all style showed flair and something a little unusual. Hayden is a thoroughly nice man with a strong moral centre. He's also extremely sexy. By and large, the bedroom scenes were written with less than the usual sprinkling of body parts but were no less erotic. Well done, Ms Hunter!
