Format: Mass Market Paperback
Celia Pennifold is the daughter of the famed London courtesan, Alessandra Northrope. Celia's mother educates her in the art of pleasure, but instead of following in her mother's footsteps, Celia flees and takes refuge with friends. Five years later her mother dies and Celia inherits all of her property, including a small house on Wells Street, and huge debts. Celia also inherits Jonathan Albrighton. The gentleman is a tenant and dwells in one of the attic chambers. Due to Jonathan's contract, she cannot evict him, yet she fears his presence could completely ruin her reputation - which is tarnished enough already. However, Jonathan only uses the attic chamber during the rare times he must be in London. Since he enjoys his privacy, Jonathan has never even told his friends where he resides and he uses a discreet method of entry to the house. The man refuses to heed her hints that he move elsewhere.

It is an awkward arrangement, but Celia does not have too much time to dwell on it. Celia is in business with her good friend, Daphne. The small house is an ideal spot for transporting, selling, and the deliveries their flowers. Problem is that the debts are still mounting. Celia is forced to consider embracing the profession for which she was groomed. At the same time, she has no idea that Jonathan is conducting a secret investigation into her mother's mysterious activities.

***** FIVE STARS! It is always a pleasure to spy a new story by Madeline Hunter whenever I haunt the local book stores. This is the third title of a quartet. (Somehow I have missed the first two titles, which I intend to rectify shortly, so I can tell you from experience that you do not HAVE to read the first two titles in order to thoroughly enjoy this tale.

Book 3 of Hunter's quartet is as good as Book 1. Sept. 29 2010
By OLT - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have a bias towards liking whatever M. Hunter writes, and this book lives up to that bias. This is another Hunter regency that pulls me into the historical times of its setting, with no silly or TSTL characters, no jarring anachronistic language or behavior, no Big Misunderstandings or unbelievable situations to frustrate me. It has a tender yet sexy romance and a bit of mystery to add some spice to the story.

Hero Jonathan Albrighton is the illegitimate son of a deceased earl and is shunned by the present earl (his cousin) and other members of the family, with the exception of his uncle Edward. Heroine Celia Pennifold is the illegitimate daughter of a well-known courtesan and a father presumably of the peerage but unknown to her. At the beginning of this story, Celia's mother has died and left Celia all her properties, including a lot of debts. Celia moves into the small house in London she has inherited to find that she has also inherited Jonathan as a tenant of long standing in that house.

From there the story moves into uncovering mysteries from the past; for Jonathan it is to find out what part Celia's mother played in wartime spying and with whom, and for Celia it is to find out the identity of her father. Developments along the way turn them at times into allies and at times lead to some misunderstandings (not of the Big variety) and their romance develops beautifully at the same time.

Another enjoyable aspect of the book is that the main characters of books 1 and 2 play secondary yet important roles in this one. Not to mention the character who has been fascinating everyone since RAVISHING IN RED: Tristan, the Duke of Castleford. He's up to his usual debauchery but always manages to be like the Lone Ranger and save the day for everyone in spite of supposedly being sober only on Tuesday of each week. So looking forward to his and Daphne's story, which is coming in May 2011. For Daphne's sake, however, I do hope he is exaggerating his vices so he won't pass on any STDs to her.

The Sweetest Bloom Oct. 2 2010
By A. Cook - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This has been my favorite book of the series, a great comeback after the rather disappointing "Provocative in Pearls". I for some reason had assumed Celia would end up with Castleford, but after reading this story it is evident that Celia and Jonathan were made for each other. Their similar backgrounds have left them little illusions about the world, yet instead of becoming hardened cynics they are both deep romantics at heart and are willing to make huge personal sacrifices for the love they have for each other. At times Celia is a little too perfect and holds surprisingly little resentment for the unwarranted censure and assumptions leveled at her. A previous review commented on the lack of chemistry between the two leads, I completely disagree the characters seems much attuned to each other's needs and emotions and this is the sexiest book in the series, the bathing scene is especially memorable..

Liked it the best in the series so far Sept. 28 2010
By M. Mitchell - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
While I am counting down the days until I can read about Castleford and Daphne (that has to be the fourth book, doesn't it?), this one about Celia was a great appetizer. I like a bit more angst in my romances, but even with out that, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

I do like it the best of the three in the series thus far, but not by much over Ravishing in Red. FYI--it isn't necessary to have read the first two books to enjoy this one.

Another winner in this series! Oct. 4 2010
By Maria E. Geraci - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
When Celia Pennifold inherits the house left to her by her famous courtesan mother, she gets more than just a building. She also inherits its mysterious tennent, Jonathan Albrighton, the bastard son of an earl, whose past includes working for the government in the war against the French. Celia is determined to start a life of her own, a life very different than the one her mother led. Jonathan is also determined. He's on a mission from his uncle to find the list of Celia's mother's "protectors." His search begins to reveal secrets long ago buried and soon the two of them are involved in a search for Celia's father. There's also rumors that Celia's mother might have been a spy, and the possibility that Jonathan's parentage is not as clear cut as it seems. Plus, when an old debt surfaces, Celia is forced to consider taking up her mother's career.

I adored both Celia and Jonathan and did not want this story to end. The romance is superb, the sex scenes are exquisite, and the secondary characters (hero and heroine from both Ravishing in Red and Provacative in Pearls) are a delight. I especially loved Castelford (the hero for book 4- Dangerous in Diamonds) and cannot wait for his story.
Historical romance does not get better than this!

Best of Series....So Far! Nov. 7 2010
By Mrs. Bratton - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Out of the three books (the fourth comes out in May 2011) in the regency quartet series this one was the smoothest. It was hard to put down, and the ending was better then I expected. It was not necessary to read the first two books but was much easier to feel the relationships between the Rarest Blooms and the four men. Celia is a strong young women with a hard upbringing and a rough title to follow, while Jonathan is an established operative from the war. They both have mirroring family situations and connect on a physical and mental level rarely touched in series.
