Book Description

Lucifer Cynster has sworn never to pledge his heart -- but fate has other plans...

The last unwed Cynster, Alasdair -- known as Lucifer -- has escaped to Devon one step ahead of London's matchmaking mamas. Yet, despite his dedication to avoiding the parson's mousetrap, the irresistible Phyllida Tallent -- a willful, independent beauty -- brings all his masterful Cynster instincts rioting to the fore. Initially Lucifer tries to suppress the desire Phyllida evokes, but fate intervenes, leaving him facing the ultimate challenge for a Cynster -- wooing a reluctant bride.

Her wit, charm, and beauty have garnered Phyllida a bevy of suitors, but not one has tempted her the way Lucifer does. His offer to teach her all about love is almost too tantalizing to refuse. And although she has not yet surrendered completely, Phyllida knows only a fool resists a determined Cynster.

And Phyllida is certainly no one's fool.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
In All About Love, it's Rupert Cynster's turn to meet his fate, and he does so in the form of Phyllida Tallent, the daughter of the magistrate in the village whence Cynster has fled to escape his matchmaking family. They first meet when she almost kills him, which I suppose is one way of leaving a lasting impression.
There is a murder plot: the old friend whom Rupert - Lucifer, as we�re supposed to call him - has come to visit has just been killed. And Lucifer knows that Phyllida knows something about the murder, just as he later discovers that her life is in danger - which gives him a very good reason to insist on protecting her. And, being a Cynster, he does a lot more than just protect her. Which begins to sound somewhat familiar...
Here's the formula for any Cynster book: Alpha-male hero, dead set against marriage, does his best to escape the plotters among the rest of his family. And then, when he least expects it, he runs into an unusual woman, very different from the run-of-the-mill female in that she's independent and confident, and immediately he falls in love and wants to marry her. Said female, on the other hand, does not want to marry him - for various, usually not very convincing reasons. Cynster male then exerts multiple powers of persuasion, some not exactly fair, but the one thing he refuses to do is to *tell* her exactly why he wants to marry her. So if she's holding out for a declaration of love, she's unlikely to get one, and this is what carries the story, which could really have been over within 150 pages, on to close to 400 pages.
Oh, and there�s always some sort of mystery/murder/crime plot, which generally gets far too much time and attention devoted to it, and which is usually pretty much paper-thin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written, humourous and a quick read 4 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the 1st of the "Bar Cynster" series that I have read. It will not be the last!
Ms Laurens manages to combine a well written tale with humour and wit, great primary and secondary characters and a plot that has enough "meat" to flesh out a sensual love story.
I was very impressed with the communication between the main characters. Nothing annoys me more than an entire plot based around a misunderstanding that a 5 min mature conversation between the "hero" & "heroine" on page 1 would have negated the need for the rest of the story. In "All About Love" there are, of course, some misunderstandings but they are recognised and discussed in a mature and sensible way adding depth to the development of the characters as they discover their feelings for each other. The hero was perhaps a little "too" perfect, but what the heck - we can all dream. Although I don't share many of the character traits of the heroine, she was someone I would like to call a friend.
The love scenes were well crafted with a sensual more than sexual feel to them. The attraction was both believable and well developed. They worked their way through awareness to desire and finally love. This seems a much more realistic approach than the full blown passion at first sight that a lot of historical writers indulge in.
All in all a good read. My only complaint was that it was a very quick read. However, with a whole series out there this was just an appetiser!

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 4 May 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I actually enjoyed this particular book in the series more than some of the others. It has far more of a developed romantic suspense story in it, rather than just the development of the romance between the two main characters, which is the case with some of the other Cynster novels.

Lucifer Cynster is invited down to Devon by his old friend and mentor in the world of collecting, Horatio Welham, because Horatio wants Lucifer's opinion on some special find that Horatio is very excited about. As Horatio is a specialist collector of books and Lucifer a collector of jewelry and silver, Lucifer can not imagine what Horatio wants his opinion on. However, as he is the last of the Bar Cynster's to remain unwed, Horatio's iniviation is an ideal way to avoid all the London match-making mama's and avoid marriage. He is sure that there will not be any interesting young misses in Horatio's village to tempt him into marriage. How wrong he is!

When he arrives at the village of Colyton, Lucifer finds a dead body in the dining room of the Manor and nearly ends up dead himself. Lucifer is sure that the enigmatic Phyllida Tallent, the very competent daughter of the local magistrate, knows more about the murder than she is letting on and he sets out to find out. However, Phyllida is a very independent 24 year old, used to organising both her father's household and the lives of the villagers - she is 'miss fix-it', and she has no intention of being intimidated by a mere dominating male. Why she has nearly all the eligable males in the district queuing up to marry her and will have none of them.

So Lucifer has a battle on his hands, both in how to woo the reluctant Phyllida and to discover the identity of the murderer.

Then it appears that the murderer is also trying to murder Phyllida and all Lucifer's protective Cynester genes come to the forefront.

Very witty and enjoyable, with likeable secondary characters.
