4.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed every minute., 5 Feb. 2010
This review is from: All Night with a Rogue (Lords of Vice) (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. (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! ****
