Is happy enough to oblige especially when he catches a glimpse of his target Juliana is completely unlike the empty headed chits who Night with a Rogue Lords eBook #9734 barely hold his attention for a week A true All Night PDF or gentleman would leave her to find a worthy suitor But then a Lord of Vice would never claim to be a gentlemanWOULD IT END IN FOREVERJuliana is expected. I loved the concept of the book It was very Cruel Intentions However the delivery just fell short of my expectations It started off well with some steamy scenes but the actual romance in the story was lacking I never really felt like the characters even really cared about each other They spent a couple of weeks boning with no real emotional attachment shown followed by the heroine spending the rest of the book than half of it trying to escape the two douchebags who blackmail her for a relationship There wasn't much character development either it was actually almost like reading a wiki article describing the story You get a basic idea of what's going to happen without any form of emotional attachment to the characters something I feel is essential in romantic novelsI also felt like the story was lacking in research on the time period The heroine's mother encourages her to go off with men on her own ALL the time There are never chaperones despite the fact that she and all of her sisters are supposed to be finding husbands Everyone knows very early in the book that she's sleeping with the hero but they all just accept it she's never shunned by society there are no negative effects for her family etc In fact the blackmailers keep talking about how important it is not to shame her sisters so they can still get married but everyone already knows that she's already lost her V card That should have already happened Plus everyone should already know her family's financial situation so that alone would have made the daughters completely unacceptable They're in a time when beauty didn't necessarily matter so much as money since most of the aristocrats needed the dowry That's why so many of them started marrying upper middle class girls

All Night with a Rogue Lords of Vice #1To 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 rea. I almost didn't finish this then realized that if I don't finish it I can't give it bad review It was bad The basic plot setup is that a woman asks her brother to seduce a virginal young woman because she's jealous The hero does it but only because he wants to anyway How romantic The historicalsocial stuff was way off This was supposedly a Regency concerning aristocrats A man introduces himself to a marriageable young woman Young woman accepts a gift of jewelry from a man he gave her a pearl necklace No really He gives ALL his lovers a pearl necklaces only he gives it to them by putting them into their vaginas first because he's a sweetheart like that Everyone knows young woman is the mistress of this Maruess of Slutbag but people still talk to her anyway A mother pimps out her marriageable daughter to perverts not ONCE but TWICE also expecting the hero to rescue her but DOESN'T TELL HIM ANYTHING WTF I think maybe Hawkins could have pulled off something like this if she made her heroine of a lower class or did anything to acknowledge the vileness of the mother or at least stage something satisfactorily awful to happen to the villainessbut no This was really not worth the time or the discounted price

I really feel like a large chunk of this story was missing The book reads 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 muchAlexius 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 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 togetherThis 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 upset with the motherWe 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 with their assessment
