Product Description

From the Back Cover

Notorious, handsome, and decadent, the Lords of Vice prowl the glittering ballrooms of Regency London— breaking rules and hearts with equal aplomb. But even the wildest rogue must eventually meet his match…

 

IT BEGAN AS A FAVOR…

 

Seduce Lady Juliana Ivers and then cast her aside: Those are his sister’s instructions. Alexius Braverton, Marquess of Sinclair—known as Sin to the ton—is happy enough to oblige, especially when he catches a glimpse of his target. Juliana is completely unlike the empty-headed chits who barely hold his attention for a week. A true gentleman would leave her to find a worthy suitor. But then, a Lord of Vice would never claim to be a gentleman.

 

WOULD IT END IN FOREVER?

 

Juliana is expected to marry well to improve her family’s finances, even if she secretly longs to make a living through her musical compositions. A dalliance can only complicate matters, though not even practical Juliana can help succumbing to the aptly named Sin. But one unforgettable night will draw her into a scandalous affair—and a seduction begun as sport will soon become deliciously, dangerously real…

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Set in London, 1820. Alexius Lothar Braverton, Marquess of Sinclair, is known as Sin to his friends. He is one of the seven founding members of the Lords of Vice. His half sister, Belle, tells Sin that Lady Juliana is a heartless chit who is determined to steal her suitor, Lord Kyd, away. Belle instructs Sin to seduce the girl and then cast her aside. Sin is happy to oblige. He neither wonders, nor cares, if Lady Juliana is the jade Belle claims. As with the numerous ladies he has bedded in the past, Sin only sees Juliana's beauty and targets her as his next conquest.

Lady Juliana Ivers knows only too well that her family's position in polite society had plummeted considerably since her father, the Marquess of Duncombe, died five years ago. The title now belongs to a distant cousin. Her mother has brought Juliana and her two older sisters to London in hopes of them marrying well. Sin is one of the rogues that all mothers know to keep their daughters far away from. Yet as Sin begins paying close attention to Juliana, her mother does not seem to object. As for Lady Juliana, she has been interested in Sin since she had been trapped in a tree while he and another lady had a small tryst. Even knowing him to be a rogue, Juliana cannot resist Sin's seduction. It is not long before scandal threatens and Juliana realizes she has become the pawn of several selfish creatures.

**** FOUR STARS! Alexandra Hawkins does not reuse the same characters with different names or the same old and worn out plots that several authors do. I found myself treated to an interesting assortment of characters, each with their own personality and set of habits. The hero in this story, Sin, came across to me as quite a bit more selfish than any hero I had previously read.

Lady Juliana Ivers spies a man tristing with a woman she knows is married. Only he knows they were caught. He is intrugued by her and vows to find out her name. His name is Alexius Braverton, the Marquess of Sinclair. His nickname is "Sin" for obvious reasons. His half sister wants him to seduce and abandon a woman called Lady Juliana Ivers, who she believes is after the man she wants to marry. He agrees, but later finds out the woman he saw spying on him is called Lady Juliana. He agrees to the wager, and is adamant of victory when she cannot resist him. But Lady Juliana isn't after anyone, as her passion lies in music, and the man she has been friends with is trying to help her achieve her goal to publish her work. She finds herself in love with Alexius, but doesn't tell him this. She later discovers her mother has many gambling debts and the man she lost her money to will only write off the debt if Juliana agrees to be his mistress. Juliana is outraged her mother has agreed to this but she said she had no choice as everyone would share her shame if the truth came out. Juliana has no time to inform Alexius, and he finds out for himself. She later finds out about the wager and immediately resents her feelings. But she doesn't realise that she needs him now more than other when her own cousin vows to have Juliana for himself as well. If he saves her, he knows he must tell her everything to win her back.

This is the first book I have read by Alexandra Hawkins. Overall, I would say the story is pretty good, reminding me of a certain movie where it all starts with a bet, and then the guy realises he actually does want her. I would read the next book in this series.

4/5

i loved this book especially the guy i would even say i fancied quite a few of his friends it was very moving to think of them all standing together i loved the love scenes though id hoped the girl would have resisted just slightly the only thing i didnt like was why noone confronted that poor excuse of a mother plus i was a little disturbed by the intimacy between the siblings overall i would suggest it to others handsdown

Why Did These Characters Like Each Other? 23 Mar 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I really feel like a large chunk of this story was missing. The book reads more like an outline than an in depth exploration of two characters falling in love. The premise sounded like the movie Cruel Intentions, and since I enjoyed that I figured I'd give this a try. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy this set up or the characters very much.

Alexius Sinclair, otherwise known as Sin, agrees to a plot his half sister, Belle, hatches. Sin is to seduce and then discard Juliana Ivers because she is heartless and is trying to steal Belle's beau. Sin is more than happy to help out his half sister, but is shocked to discover Juliana is a woman he had met previously and been intrigued by. Juliana's mother has brought her and her sisters to London in hope of arranging advantageous marriages for them. The family has fallen on hard times since their father died five years before. Juliana is not very interested in marriage but becomes intrigued by the rakish Sin after their first meeting together.

This story seemed like it was designed solely to make Juliana suffer in every possible way. Not only is Sin horrible toward her, but her own mother is even worse. It's bad enough to be betrayed by a man you're interested in, but it is so much worse to be betrayed by someone who loved and raised you. It wasn't a little betrayal either! It was a huge one that shocked and disgusted me. I couldn't understand why all the characters weren't more upset with the mother.

We get the lead up in Sin and Juliana's relationship and we get the conclusion of it, but the middle part where we would be expected to watch the characters grow to love each other was only told, not shown. Weeks were skipped over and mentioned briefly and by then they were in love. I really would have preferred to actually watch their feelings develop. Also, I never saw any real redeeming traits in either of the protagonists to actually make them interesting to me. They both seemed like weak, shallow people. Also, why was Sin so ok with what his sister did? When he finds out all the facts it doesn't really seem to impact him. Later in the book when one of the characters points out what role Sin plays for his sister I couldn't agree more with their assessment.

Lovin' Me Some Sin! 2 Feb 2010
By VampFanGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
3 1/2 Stars!

Alexius "Sin" Sinclair is a man of vice and debauchery. His trademark: A pearl necklace that decorates the necks of many prestigious ladies of the ton. He's also bored, jaded beyond repair with the only solace being his club and its members, The Lords of Vice. Together, these titled "gentlemen" brood and drink whilst bawdy prostitutes parade and hawk their wares. But the mundane nuances of Sin's life is soon shakend by the beautiful Juliana Ivers when in the midst of a naughty tryst with the married Lady Lettlecott, Sin glimpses the beguiling girl high in a hazel tree watching with fearful curiosity.

Juliana, the beauty in her family, is not looking for a husband while in London. Instead, she's secretly looking for a way to publish her music. But unbeknownst to the innocent Juliana is that her pursuit has garnered the attention of Lord Kyd and thus spikes the resentment of a very dangerous foe. Despite the fact that Juliana's acquaintance with Lord Kyd is a harmless business adventure, Juliana has roused the petty jealousy of a very powerful woman that has the means to destroy her reputation with a very seductive weapon.

Reminiscent of CRUEL INTENTIONS, Sin's deranged half-sister convinces him that the beautifully innocent Juliana is attempting to steal Lord Kyd's affections with marriage in mind. Saddened and petulant over what she feels is a complete offense on Juliana's part, she manipulates Sin into agreeing to seduce Juliana and then publicly discard her. Feeling protective of his half-sister, Sin is compelled to do as she bids and embarks on his seduction of Juliana.

Forgetting Sin's half-sister's request for a moment, it was odd to read of a rakish hero specifically pursuing a woman like Juliana. In my general reading experience, most historical heroes shudder at the thought of dallying with a virgin miss on the marriage mart. For one, if they get caught stealing the goods, whether it be consensual or not, the consequence is marriage especially if said innocent has a very powerful protector. Even if the innocent is lacking a protector, most jaded men such as Sin find a virgin boring so it was unconventional to say the least that Sin pursues Juliana not only at his half-sister's bidding, but for his own amusement as well. Even more shocking, Juliana is not adverse to the idea.

Juliana was a befuddling character. Her ultimate desire is to publish music but the emphasis on this pursuit wasn't to a degree that the reader would believe her capable of completely shunning the idea of marriage. In fact, there really isn't a time that she proclaims that she'll never get married but the reader is supposed to believe that this is why she allows Sin's seduction. In essence, Julianna risked ruination not only by associating with Sin but by allowing him to take her virginity with very little to gain nor even for a really good reason other than attraction. In a day and age where even a whisper of nefarious actions would taint a girl and her family beyond repair, I was surprised to read of a heroine like Juliana risking her sisters' chances at marriage for a tumble in the sheets.

Sin, in the first hundred pages, ranked a bit on the sleazy side for me. The things he said and did had me giggling or thinking "yuck". In addition, Juliana seemed an easy conquest for it took very little effort on Sin's part to convince her to allow his demanding touch. But despite these early mishaps, Sin's falling in love with Juliana was very sweet. The whole notion of not knowing what you have until its gone was very much in evidence with Sin's fall leading to one of the best scenes in the book. After a horrific family bet forces Juliana to the side of another man, Sin, having not been apprised of the situation, is outraged that she's left him and his emotion was absolutely palpable. I also thought that Sin righted the terrible wrongs he committed towards Juliana when he first treated her as just another one of his conquests. He does pay dearly for this initial callous treatment in more ways than one and his inevitable atonement was beautiful.

It was obvious from the writing that Alexandra Hawkins is an author that knows and understands romance. Given that, it was surprising to read a novel, debut or not, where the romance felt a bit hurried resulting in Sin's sleaziness and Juliana being a bit easy. This may have been because the external plot points needed extra page dedication, but the novel, in my opinion, would have benefited from more pages dedicated to Sin's and Juliana's romance. If the romance between the H/h had been more developed, then I believe that ALL NIGHT WITH A ROGUE could have been a great read rather than merely okay. That being said, I'm definitely going to pick up whatever Ms. Hawkins delivers next.

ALL NIGHT WITH A ROGUE is a novel that will more than appeal to readers who enjoy their historical fare on the steamier side. Plus, the six other Lords of Vice are just as broodingly-rakish as Sin, thus promising that more steamy books are to come.

Interesting concept in theory, not so interesting upon execution 20 Feb 2010
By Yihui - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This story endeavors to turn most romance tropes on its head, as far as mainstream romance goes. I'm sure it's admirable to attempt such a different tale, but the result is that the heroine and her family are definitely not wilting daisies, but careen across to the other end of the spectrum into frankly annoying characters. There isn't a single NICE character in the story to root for - the rogue never reforms, the heroine is unbelievably sensible about the hero, but unfailingly loyal to her mother, who is an unrepentant gambler who is willing to bet her child's life on the reformation of a rogue, the heroine's sisters are bitchy and competitive and the hero's sister and friends all pursue their ulterior motives, and the hero and heroine go along with all sorts of crazy schemes in the name of loyalty.

Thus the characterization is weak and unbelievable, the prose is unremarkable and several times I literally threw the book at the wall as I was so frustrated with the stupidity of the story.

I'm giving this 2 stars for the effort to produce an original tale, but frankly, when it comes to romance, it's pretty much the execution that counts, readers are mostly looking for relate-able, and nice heroes and heroines. No one wants to read about mean horrible people getting a HEA; that would be non-fiction, and there's enough of that in the world.

NOT Dangerous Liasons 29 April 2010
By richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book reeked of Dangerous Liasons except the quality was sadly lacking. I gave it 2 stars because first the author got it in print and second I have to note the effort and loss of life of trees to make the paper..the second was a joke.
Lets start with Bella and Sin who are half siblings. Bella wants Sin to take Julianna's virginity as Julianna has taken the "attention" of Bella's suitor and hopeful betrothed. A few tears of Bella's part and Sin is happily on his fornicating way. Now lets move to Julianna our virtuous pure virgin. Both her first & second encounters with Sin are catching him in sexual acts with married women. After an eye witness encounter of Sin in action with another women,Julianna puts up little resistance to Sin's improprieties when the lipstick on his pecker isn't even dry. With only a couple brief encounters, Julianna just flops on her back for Sin and in the end at full disclosure of his true treachory forgives all to easy.
This book isn't a keeper in my opinion. I couldn't feel any sympathy for Julianna, Sin had no redemption and Bella didn't ever pay any price nor was her actions aired.

I found myself treated to an interesting assortment of characters, each with their own personality and set of habits. The hero in this story, Sin, came across to me as quite a bit more selfish than any hero I had previously read. (And I found myself growing more and more angry at Juliana's mother as the woman's actions were revealed.) But by the end, I was in awe of the author for a variety of reasons. Alexandra Hawkins's writing style flows smoothly and can paint a scene in such detail that I almost felt as if I could smell the surroundings. The backgrounds of the main and secondary characters are so well developed that I actually grew irritated at some - as if they were real people! Best of all is the fact that the story started out with (what I thought to be) one plot, before branching out to reveal that there were actually several sub-plots and more than one surprise twist. Alexandra Hawkins does the Regency era as no other! ****
