"The Sins of Lord Easterbrook" is book four in Madeline Hunter's 'Rothwell' family series and in some ways, I think it might be the most interesting. The story is one of the clash of cultures, traditions, classes, and genders.

Leona is the daughter of an English father and a Portuguese mother who was raised in the Far East. She's never forgotten the Englishman, Edmund, who was the object of her affections, her first kiss, and possibly her first betrayal. She's come to England to assist her young

While this book sounded great, for me it fell flat.

After seven years Leona Montgomery and Christian, Marquess of Easterbrook meet again, as Leona travels to London in order to find partners in her family’s shipping business and to investigate some top peers whom slowly destroyed her father’s business and later slowly killed him When she comes across Christian again the years fall away as the attraction that sparked between them still burns bright. Christian has never forgotten again Leona throu

Os Pecados de Lord Easterbrook é sem dúvida o livro mais exótico que já li de Madeline Hunter. Este prima principalmente pela diferença, apesar de ser a conclusão da "trilogia" Easterbrook.
A capa e a sinopse não me desiludiram nem um bocadinho.
Não sei se foi pela introdução da personagem Leona, estrangeira apesar das suas raízes, se foi pela personalidade estranha, que mais tarde se revela ser outra coisa, do excêntrico Lord, só sei que este livro nos faz sair um pouco do romance confortável do

I have been a fan of Madeline Hunter ever since she wrote medievals. While those still remain in my keeper’s shelf her latest offerings haven’t been granted the same status. Entertaining yes but not as fulfilling. I do still read them all and the latest one was this.

We’ve been following Easterbrook since book 1 of the Rothwell series (this is book nº4) and while he hasn’t been a very sympathetic character there’s always been an aura of mystery about him that I felt could be a good omen for his

I have just recently discovered Madeline Hunter, after experiencing a rather, drawn out, and annoying bout of 'reader's block'

I picked this book up at my local bookstore, thinking it would be an easy read, to help me out of my slump. Let me tell you what I have discovered, about Ms Hunter...

In my opinion, her writing is amazingly clever, devastatingly sexy, and with just the right amount of mystery to keep the pages turning.

In short, I have definatly found myself another favorite author.

Leona and Christian met seven years ago in a land faraway from England. When Leona ends up in England looking for "Edmund", Christian knows that his past is about to come back and finish taking out the rest of his heart. He never forgot the dark-haired, dark-eyed beauty and she never forgot the kisses of a wild, dark souled young man.

Leona has come to try and form some shipping alliances for her brother's shipping company. She has also come to find the men whom destroyed her father and ultimate

Já não é mistério nenhum que eu gosto desta autora. Sempre que a Asa edita algum livro desta senhora é ver-me a ir direitinha a uma FNAC, BERTRAND ou livraria da esquina.

Parte do fascínio que esta autora provoca deve-sa sobretudo à fluidez na escrita dela que permita que, por muito complicada que seja a trama, os leitores devorem os seus livros sem dar conta do passar de páginas.




Quanto a este livro, os principais pontos já estão escarrapachados na sinopse e daí eu não avançar mais.

I have been looking forward to this book for what seems like forever. Throughout this series I have been intrigued by Lord Easterbrook. He was so different from all the other characters and I couldn't wait to see what made him tick. Unfortunately it didn't meet my expectations.

I think the statement that Easterbrook makes to Leona, "I am Easterbrook" really defines the entirety of his character. He's troubled yes, but the issues he has are overshadowed by his arrogance and belief in his own super

Depois de Casamento de Conveniênia pensei que a autora tinha perdido a imaginação e admito que comprei este livro com baixas expectativas e apenas para terminar a colecção. E ainda bem que o fiz.
Gostei bastante deste romance que, apesar de ser semelhante aos dois primeiros (As Regras da Sedução e Jogos de Sedução), nos apresenta a misteriosa China dos inícios do século XIX com as suas tradições mas também com a maldição do tráfico do ópio.
Trata-se de um romance histórico mas também muito exótic

Detestei este livro...
Depois de tantas expectativas, de tanto dar a entender que o Christian era tão misterioso... ficou muito aquém dos irmãos Hayden e Elliot. O Hayden será sempre o meu favorito - e o Elliot e a Phaedra andei a enrolar até mais não.

Agora este Christian e a Leona? Não me senti nada apegada à história, a Madeline não conseguiu cumprir aquilo para o que se propôs com todas as expectativas que nos passou através dos volumes anteriores...

Achei este livro um tanto diferente dos outros dois livros desta trilogia,centrado muito mais na parte histórica, e também no mistério que envolve a família de Leona e do Conde,do que a relação amorosa que se concretizou entre os dois e que já tinha sido iniciada quando eram mais jovens.
Sendo diferente, eu gostei muito de ler este livro ,dando-nos a conhecer o que se passava com o Conde e que tinha sempre sido sugerido nos outros dois livros, assim como o relacionamento entre os casais tão conhe

Desde o primeiro livro que tive curiosidade em saber o porquê de Christian Easterbrook ter um comportamento diferente do habitual para alguém da posição dele e nesta obra tive a oportunidade de o conhecer melhor tal como o seu passado na pele de Edmund.
Toda a história se desenvolve através de um grande problema que ainda é bastante atual nos di

Este livro foi uma excelente aquisição para as minhas estantes, e gostei imenso de o ler.
Foi a minha segunda leitura de Madeline Hunter, e não desiludiu. Uma vez mais, calhou-me um livro ao acaso, e talvez isso tenha contribuído para não só gostar imenso da história, como para me despertar a atenção para os outros títulos da mesma série, tal como aconteceu com o "Mil Noites de Paixão".

Além do romance e do erotismo que esperava de um título de Madeline Hunter, "Os Pecados de Lord Easterbrook" dã

I am sorry to see this series end. The Rothwell family is fascinating and the women feisty and fun. The Lord and eldest brother, Christian, is a mystery to most, even his own brothers Elliott and Hayden. He spent several years gone from England when he was not yet the Marques, with no explanation, only to return with no answers. He is uncaring of the rumors swirling around him - after all he is now the Marques and above common gossip - but a family member puts it well - he seems to be waiting fo ...more

I must admit, I initially didn't really care for this story. I really liked the Marquess of Easterbrook from Hunter's other novels, but in this book, I found his voice confusing and cliche. I truly don't care for Regencies with mentions of the Orient or the East. Mostly because I know that if the views are true to the era, I'll be offended, and if they aren't, I'll be annoyed that it is so modern.

However, the mystery involving the Montgomery family as well as the Easterbrooks surpassed my disda

A minha aventura com os Irmãos Rothwell começou há precisamente 1 ano quando, na mesma feira em que comprei Os Pecados de Lord Easterbrook, fui surpreendida por Lições de Desejo e pelo carisma de Elliot e a altivez de Phaedra.

Um ano mais tarde, termino esta história maravilhosa com aquele que foi, muito provavelmente, o meu livro favorito dos quatro.

Não porque a história seja mais interessante ou porque a escrita esteja de alguma forma mais cativante. De facto, Madeline Hunter já há muito que me

Rainy three day week-ends demand mindless trash. Mindless this was and marginally entertaining. It could have been better had Hunter actually fleshed out the initial interlude between Leona and Christian or perhaps made his "affliction" more concrete. Mirror, shadows and illusion simply make a lack-luster story. Still, everyone was screwing, avoiding scandal, getting married and cranking out the kids with the blessing of "society." A true bourgeois ending that preserves the status quo. Natch.

I really, really, loved Christian/Edmund. He was an interesting mix ruthless/decisive and vulnerable and overall a very unusual/odd hero due to his afflction. (There was something about him that reminded me of hero in The Madness of Ian Mackenzie.) Anywho I thought Leona, the heroine, was fairly strong and and likeable heroine and liked the secondary characters as well. The begining was a little slow I think because the writing felt a little formal. But Christian sealed the deal for me.

And my reading slump continues. I don't think I've enjoyed a book that I read in two months.

This was ...disappointing. Interesting characters, writing style left something to be desired. Too paint-by-numbers for my taste, either that or I've read too many of these books. Possibly the latter. But there's a certain writing style that seems to be rather popular with the publishing industry, which puts me to sleep. It's stale and lacks texture or humor. Yet, people eat it up, god bless them.

When I started reading Madeline Hunter's fourth installment of the Rothwell Family series, I immediately didn't like it. That dislike marginally improved once I finished, though I think it was more from relief than anything else.

This book is so flat and shallow. Shallow in a sense that the dialogues, the characters, the STORY - are poorly developed. And there was so much potential to this plot: a brooding hero tortured with clairsentience and an exotic heroine who grew up in the East, determined

I enjoyed this but felt it wasn't as well-written as The Rules of Seduction. I expected to find Christian more compelling than I did and my over-all feeling was that the two of them spent a bit too much time in bed.

According to the reviews I should have read #1 and especially #3 in the series. Book was OK on its own. Christian/Edmund was very much full of himself with his "I am Easterbrook" attitude so maybe the other books in the series would make me understand that attitude better. Liked how his problems were described from his ability to understand emotions to his solutions to opium addiction. Interesting that a Chinese book was used for inspiration on the sexual scenes yet it was still described tastef ...more
