A woman running a prestigious London auction house? Preposterous! But that is exactly what Emma Fairbourne intends to do when her father dies, leaving her the reins of this fabulous enterprise.  Of course, she is not addlepated enough to do this openly and scare away her wealthy collectors.  So she and her friend concoct a deception, hiring a handsome and charming front man who will do her bidding . . . All would have proceeded smoothly-if it weren't for the maddening interference of Darius, the arrogant Earl of Southwaite, who has been her father's "silent partner" and now shares ownership of Fairbourne's.  An earl, of course, has no interest in running an auction house-and Darius is certainly not interested in allowing the lovely Miss Fairbourne to run it either, her ludicrous scheme notwithstanding.  Clearly the business must be sold. But the headstrong Emma is like no other lady he has ever encountered, refusing to follow his dictates.  Holding his temper in check, Darius decides to attack on a different front.  There is another way to achieve her surrender, one far more pleasurable for both of them . . .

    " To me the plot seemed little more than running from here to there and back again. Miss Fairbourne was not one of my favorite characters. I really liked M. Hunter's other series, so I'll still look forward to her next in this one. "

    " This one is set in the earlyish days of the French Revolution, in 1798 or 99, when England was anticipating an invasion. Heroine's father ran an art auction house. He's died falling off a cliff overlooking the English Channel, which raises suspicions, and his daughter's trying to keep the business open and profitable. But there's this silent, noble partner of her father's. And strange things happening. Hero's the nobleman partner, heroine's the auction house owner. "
