The first time Lady Juliana Ivers meets Alexius Braverton, the Marquess of Sinclair is when she flees from an unwanted admirer into a tree. From the top of the tree she observes his tête-à-tête with a married lady. She is shocked although intrigued by what she sees. When Alexius discovers her presence in the tree, he talks to her after the other lady disappears. He is fascinated by her, but she is gone before he learns her name. What he doesn’t know is that fate in the person of his sister will soon bring Juliana back into his life. Because his sister feels herself threatened by Juliana Alexius is expected to first seduce and then leave her. What began as a favor for his sister becomes very soon more and the feelings of the well known rake become involved.
A truly fantastic debut novel! ALL NIGHT WITH A ROGUE is one of the best Regency romances that I have read for quite awhile.
Ms. Hawkins tells Juliana and Alexius’, better known as Sin, with a refreshingly new voice. One cannot help but fall in love with Sin and his equally wicked friends aka the Lords of Vice.
ALL NIGHT WITH A ROGUE is a deliciously wicked fun book, which kept me up all night. I wanted to see how the story developed because it was absolutely unpredictable, which I absolutely loved. Juliana was a very unusual Regency heroine, because she is not the typical meek and shy miss, what with her wish to live independently from her music composition. Sin is a rake through and through, and it takes a very special woman to lead him away from his wicked ways, or at least a little bit and Juliana is this woman.
I can hardly wait to see what happens next in this great series, because each of the Lords of Vice is a very intriguing character. Keep your eyes open for TILL DAWN WITH THE DEVIL, which will be released in August 2010.
So if you’re looking for a fresh new voice in the world of Regency romance, you will definitely want to read this book, it’s a real keeper!
THIS IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OF THIS BOOK. THIS IS AN OBJECTIVE UNBIASED REVIEW
