    ANOTHER,ENGAGING REGENCY ROMANCE! ANOTHER LORDS OF VICE ENCHANTED BY A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMAN!!AFTER DARK WITH A SCOUNDREL BY ALEXANDRA HAWKINS!!

    AFTER DARK WITH A SCOUNDREL by Alexandra Hawkins is a delightful historical romance set in 1822 London. It is the Book third in "A Lord of Vice"novel and can be read as a stand alone. Book One "All Night With a Rogue",Book Two "Till Dawn With The Devil". It is written with depth,details and twists and turns.It has romance,family secrets,betrayal,murder,romance,love passion,sweet sensuality,mystery,letting go of past hurts,and finding true love. The hero, Lord Hugh Mordare,(Dare),is the second son of a Duke,handsome,sexy,one of the notorious Lords of Vice,has been betrayed by a past love,exciting,can't forget Regan.His brother,Charles,is cruel,married the love of Dare's life years earlier out of spite and revenge.Constantly fighting with Dare even as young boys,although,their father did encourage it.The heroine, Lady Regan, is beautiful,sexy,smart,intelligent,witty,loves mischief,raised by her brother,Frost,one of the notorious Lords of Vice and his friends,has been attracted to Dare as a fifteen year old girl,She is sent off to a Young Ladies finishing school to learns manners,and learn to be a true lady.She is gone for five years and upon returning,causes much mischief.She is determined to seduce Dare.It has a sweet seduction between both Dare and Regan.Dare must learn to let the past go and forgive if he truly wants to find true love and happiness. When Dare believes Regan is searching for husband,he comes forward to claim her as his.He decides he will marry her even if he has to lie to do that.While a family crisis is always lurking with Dare's family.His brother is killed,a murder committed,Regan pushed into fast moving traffic,and Dare is severely beaten.This is a sweet,engaging Regency where family secrets and madness are revealed and love truly does prevail.If you enjoy Regency,secrets,love,romance,fast paced story this is the one for you. I have enjoyed all three of "A Lords of Vice" novels.Some may not,but at a time when young girls where often considered broodmares only and not the intelligent,bright young women they truly where,This is an heartwarming story of love that continued through five years and blossomed until a beautiful love affair.This book was received for the purpose of review from the publisher and details can be found at St.Martins' Press and My Book Addiction and More.

    engaging Regency gothic romantic suspense

    In 1823 Lord Hugh "Dare" Mordare, the second son of a Duke, is a close friend of Frost Bishop. Through him he has known Frost's sister Lady Regan for years, who is an honorary member of Nox's Gentlemen's Club. All changes when Dare and Regan kiss as both are stunned by their reaction; that is far from sibling-like.

    She is shipped off to Miss Swann's Academy for Young Ladies boarding school while he returns to being a rogue. Five years later Regan comes back to London with plans to drive Frost crazy and to seduce Dare. Frost is ready to pull his hair out with his sister's antics while Dare remains resolute to keep Regan away from the Lords of Vice like he is. However, she proves a worthy adversary and soon they marry. As she learns of his dark secrets, she finds herself in the midst of madness.

    The latest Lords of Vice (see Till Dawn with a Devil and All Night with a Rogue) is an engaging Regency gothic romantic suspense as the brave heroine finds herself in peril; perhaps from the man she loves. Fast-paced from the moment they kiss even before she is exiled, After Dark with a Scoundrel grips the reader as Alexandra Hawkins' fans will think of Hitchcock's Suspicion placed in an early nineteenth century milieu.

    Not great

    No clear reason these two fell in love. Too bad because they are both interesting people and this could have been great. Not a good romance at all.

    Fabulous

    I really love this couple. The fact that there is so much Frost in this book makes it even better. A very convincing story about love, family and drama. I love it.

    Loved It!

    I actually read a later bbok in this series first, and became intrigued by the characters of Regan and Dare. This is probably one of my favorite booksin this series. Regan is not your usual bland heroine (though none of the women in the Lords of Vice books are bland)and I love the way Dare solves his problem when Regan's brother tells him to stay away from her.

    Just keep gerting better

    These books are awesome! And to think I almost stopped reading after the first book!!! I loved this book and it made me love and look forward to Frost's story.... which I thought would be impossible. Not to mention the books re only getting better, which is most rare... only the Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn and Loretta Chase's Carsington series have felt that way to me.

    Endearing, feisty woman matched with a deliciously sexy, notorio

    Endearing, feisty woman matched with a deliciously sexy, notorious rake. What more could one ask? Just as the two preceding books, "After Dark with a Scoundrel," left me anxiously awaiting the delicious fall of the next Lord of Vice. Certainly Regan's brother, Frost, could use a good thaw from a steaming bit of romance. I don't believe that Alexandra Hawkins is capable of writing anything under a 5 star. Love her work!!!

    Great Book!!!!!!!!!Loved it!!!!!!!!!!

    This is my favorite so far in the series. Although all the books have equally great writing. The chemistry between Regan & Dare is explosive. A definate read for any romance novel junkie, like myself. Read all the books in the series you will not be disappointed!

    Romance at it's best!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I will be ordering the others in this series because I loved this one so much. The hero and heroine had excellent chemistry. I loved the bantering between them and the hot romance that ensued. All of the characters were entertaining and interesting. The only complaint i could make is that I think the ending was a little rushed. It was still satisfying though. This is a new author that I will follow closely. I highly recommend this quick, fun, and steamy read!

    Finished all three!

    Its been a long time since I read a romance novel and I'm sooooo glad I selected this series! I enjoyed that the story lines kept you reading and engaged. I fell in love with all the Lords of Vices and thier lovers. This series had me laughing, blushing, and caring about the characters. The forth book releases in January 2012. Which is already preordered. I hope we get to read Frost's story, but I guess thier save the best for last! I can't wait to read the wickness the Lords of Vice are up to. They are so hot!

    Great read!!

    This was one of the best books I have ever read. I haven't read any others by this author but I was so entranced by the characters and story that I am hoping another book will be out soon with either Vane or Frost as the lead.

    Inspiring!

    Lady Regan teaches us all the lesson that we must be true to ourselves. No matter what others think. Bold, daring, humorous, and delightfully romantic.
