A delightful 1800s romance with plenty of steamy passion. Hunter has concocted a satisfying tale of desire, deception and privilege. Here’s an author who. delivers time and again.

I was intrigued by Easterbrook in the previous books

I was intrigued by Easterbrook in the previous books. MH penned him as arrogant, imperial, sometimes comical, and he also seemed lonely and tortured. To me he was very well written in the first three books. Christian Rothwell easily is one of the most complex and like him or hate him, memorable characters you will ever meet in a historical romance. Hunter brings the reader into their emotions as they find not only true physical intimacy, but the deeper intimacy of coming to understand the many layers of each others character.

Journey back to a time of scandal, intrigue, and reckless desire in Madeline Hunter’s sensuous new novel, the tale of a man who will give up everything for the woman he’s determined to possess—even reveal his most sinful secret.Only a desperate mission could bring Leona Montgomery face-to-face with the scoundrel whose dangerous sensuality once sent her fleeing from his arms. But she has under-estimated Christian, Marquess of Easterbrook. As irresistible as ever, his past swathed in mystery, Christian has his own plans for the woman he has waited seven years to claim. Yet once desire reignites, bringing a dangerous secret into the open, Leona will find herself bound to the seductive nobleman in ways she could never have imagined. Seven years have changed nothing: this man can tempt her to ruin with just one touch. With Leona’s reputation and hopes for her family’s salvation in tatters, she must follow the only course left to her…even as each step brings her closer to a shattering truth and a passion she can no longer live without.…

I liked Lord Easterbrook. I liked his heroine Leona. I did not like their romance.

I was disappointed because this book and series began with great promise. Both, however, petered out as the writer apparently ran out of things to say about her characters.

At one point, Easterbrook was enlighted by some pretty extrodinary things Leona had done in the seven year break in their acquaitence. He expressed no surprise. Which was itself surprising considering the times in which they lived and the fact that in all references to their past, there was never any indication that Leona,little more than a school girl at the time, had the character and will to act as she apparently did during their separation.

This revelation and Easterbrook's matter of fact acceptance of it epitomized my main problem with this book which is that most of the action took place in the past, a past that was discussed among the characters, but never fully shown to the reader. The past actions that were apparently set in place to drive the plot were not adequately animated.

This book would have worked better if it had been written in two sections. The first could have been set in China were the writer could have developed a sense of place, mood and the beginnings of love that would withstand a prolonged separation and rules of society. The stage for the mystery could also have been better developed this way. The reader could actually meet the characters frequently referenced, but long dead or gone by the start of The Sins of Lord Easterbrook.

The second half of the book could have been set seven years later and focused on rediscovery and the mystery.

The (univolving) mystery took over this book. The romantic relationship was given inadequate attention. The sexual aspect of their relationship began far too quickly and early in the book. There is very little romantic tension in this book. There were too many (boring) sex scenes and discussions about the past and not enough romance and character development.

This, like all of Hunter's book, is well written. Unlike the first in the series(one of my all time romantic favorites), this book lacked focus and a point. I appreciate the discussion of the opinum problem, but, in this genre, that should have been a plot device, not the focus of the story.

Not Hunter's best work.

I was intrigued by the Lord Easterbrook character in the glimpses that I saw from the first two books of the series...complex, mysterious, sexy. So I began this one with a heightened sense of suspense. I was not disappointed. As I learned his backstory and began to see him more clearly in my mind, it was a pleasure to watch him "rejoin" society and to see the depth of his feelings for his heroine Leona. It's a winner! Love Madeline Hunter books!

I loved this book. I was intrigued by Easterbrook in the previous books. MH penned him as arrogant, imperial, sometimes comical, and he also seemed lonely and tortured. To me he was very well written in the first three books. I almost didn't care what this plot would be about as long as Easterbrook remained true to character. And, MH delivered! His voice and actions were all Easterbrook. I laughed sometimes and sometimes felt sad for him. Overcoming the seemingly insurmountable obstacles in their path, I thought created a deeply moving love story.
I also think MH did an excellent job throughout the series tying all the pieces together.

Old stories written by dead authors, new stories written by authors still alive, can be just as good to read today as they were when written. Reading about Regency England is my favorite time period to enjoy. I picked this story because the author's style of storytelling matches my reading interest level. A sexually involved story to make the mind think.

The Sins of Lord Easterbrook has it all: a historical backdrop of political intrigue, crime, and the corruption of the opium trade. It has lust, obsession and yes love.
I was delighted with Ms Hunter's portrayal of Easterbrook as a man so attuned to others' emotions that it literally pains him. Yet she portrays a man of strength who must keep himself apart or risk insanity. When he encounters someone whom he cannot `read', a lady he finds attractive, he falls in love. How can he not? But knowing she is rare, his love becomes obsession--particularly when he realizes what she is up to. And what she is up to he knows might very well kill her.
Ms Hunter does an equally good job of portraying Leona Montgomery, a young woman dedicated to her father's memory. She takes enormous risks traveling to England from the Far East to find those who have smeared her father's memory.
Ms. Hunter also cleverly draws on characters of previous books which I appreciate. It gives the story a - what shall I call it - a holistic feel? In short, I thoroughly enjoyed the book as I have all her books.

I have to say that I was was very pleased not only with this novel but with all the little endings of other characters that were concluded from the series. And finally an epilogue. I'm actually a little sad that it's over but it was a lovely ride. I read all 4 books over a two week period. I highly suggest if you are a fan. They are some of her best.

Tejora
Lord Easterbrook was intruiging from the start and the background of the China opium trade was eye opening. Madeline Hunter always weaves an interesting tale. This was the first book I read in this series and now I am going to go back and read them all.
