I really enjoyed this book, but then again I love a good scandal with a devilish hot wicked man, so this one hit the spot. This book gave me a mystery, emotions, excitement and lots of suspires. I just really wish I would have read the first novel, because the first part was a little confusing, then I caught on and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.

Some spoilers
What I loved most about this book was as I kept reading, I really found Reign and Sophie was really made to be together. Sophie has

So... wow. This one was slightly better and slightly less-squicky than the first in the series, although there's still the problem of the one-dimensional heroes. There are seven of them, Reign, Sin, Frost, *insert ominous-sounding word as a name here*, and I can't tell any of them apart. The scenes when they're all together and bantering are a mess of who's who.
Anyway, this was okay. Just barely, maybe okay... until the end. They get married quickly under duress, which is fine, and then there's

Gabriel Housely, the Earl of Rainecourt, or “Reign” is welcome at ton events, but that doesn’t stop people from gossiping about him. Eight years ago, his pregnant wife was found dead in her room, with a broken neck. Although most believe it to be a tragic accident, there are those that think Reign is guilty.

Lady Sophia is tired of feeling like a burden to her two brothers Henry and Stephan. Her parents were murdered when she was six in an apparent murder-suicide and during the attack, she was st

Maybe I'm boring, but I like the plots my HR novels to be character-driven, and not pushed forward by some long-dead relative risen from the dead to strike terror in the main characters. Also, every time someone gets shot, I get nervous. Don't you know penicillin hasn't been invented yet, and you may die a horrible gangrenous death?

Anyway, I found the sentence structure of this one a bit awkward, which lessened my enjoyment.

This is the second book in Ms. Hawkins’ Lords of Vice series, and sometimes second books are a bit of a letdown after a great start by the first out of the gate. Not so in this case. I actually like this book better than the debut of the series, All Night with a Rogue. The characters are intriguing and I really like the storyline behind our hero and, thus, our heroine as it’s unveiled how they are unfortunately connected through tragedy.

Loved it!! This is the second book of the Lords of Vice series, Reign's book and I thought it was fabulous!

The Earl of Rainecourt, dubbed Reign by his fellow Lords of Vice, has had a dubious life. When he was a child, his mother died leaving him to grow up with a volatile and sometimes abusive father. But not only that, Reign had to live with the scandal of his father killing off two friends, the Northrams (Lord and Lady Ravenshaw) before killing himself. But life doesn't get better for Reign af

I loved this story. OMG, I dropped everything the moment Till Dawn with the Devil arrived on my doorstep. I began reading it the moment I tore through the manila envelope and didn't stop until I finished every single solitary delicious and seductive word six hours later. I know what you're thinking. The woman is crazy.

Past and present crossed in unexpected action of the fate.

Sophia loses parents tragically and ends with after-effects of the accident. Despite the loss of parents and the almost total vision, she never blamed Reign for what happened when they met at the ball. Instead, she was worried how he would react to know that the current state of her health was his father fault.

Reign thought he married for love years ago, and was the biggest disappointment of his life to find out that his wife not only nev

Gostei muito da forma que a autora escreveu , visto que foi o primeiro que li dela, e a leitura me agradou. Corria um boato que Rainecourt (que casara apaixonado pela mulher) tinha matado sua esposa. Ela morrera em circunstâncias estranhas, mas como não puderam provar que fora ele e portanto ele não fora a julgamento.

The second male protagonist int he series is a pleasant addition that moves away from the repugnant actions of his counterpart in the first novel. Though Reign is an emotionally scarred Rake (aren't they all?), there is little to no evidence that he is as ruthlessly selfish as Sin.

I was happy that the marriage took place without much ado int he first half of the story. As I have mentioned before, there is something comforting in the knowledge that the two m/c's are bound to each other under the

I like this book a lot more than the previous one in the series All Night With A Roguebut I cannot give it more than 4 stars because it was lacking in some aspects.

Like the previous book, the grammar left something to be desired. When I'm reading a published book that went through the process of editing, then proofreading, and people read ARCs of it giving it ample chance to the publishing house to catch mistakes that were missed I just cant tolerate typos. I can't. They annoy me like you have

Jeez! This was a hard read.

The idea of The Lords of Vice was genius. The names--Sin, Reign, Vane, Hunter, Saint and Frost, especially Frost--were genius. In some way, they're like the Cynsters from Stephanie Laurens' books.

If this book was written better, it could've had 5 stars. But the pace was too fast. Hawkins should've added more details to tie her chapters up. Even the lovemaking scenes were BORING.

I think she can portray a character well like Frost's distinct personality. But unfortunat

Much better than the first. The H/h's interactions with each other were very sweet, even if their tragic shared past could have been delved into further.

The h's brothers were pathetic, but I guess that's kind of the point. The h just instantly believing that the H was 100% innocent of any crimes was slightly far-fetched but not entirely unbelievable.

Was it just me who wanted some sort of resolution for Fanny and Derrick? I genuinely thought this would come into play at some point, but the the on

Book two in a the Lords of Vice series, TILL DAWN WITH THE DEVIL is one of those rare blends of sweet, sexy, funny, suspenseful, and likable. The heroine is never TSTL (Too Stupid To Live), and the hero doesn’t cruelly seduce her for his own benefit outside of marriage, ruin her reputation, and then be pig-headed about “not wanting to commit." Plus, the villain's sinister, unexpected, and awesomely dangerous. Not to mention crazy.

The second book from the Lords of the Vice Series. These are stories about the seven handsome lords who are notorious womanizer. This book is about the story of Lord Reign.

Sophia Ravenshaw the younger sister of Henry and Stephan. A tragedy in her past left her 'half-blind' and incapable of finding a match who will overlook her disposition. She met a handsome lad, Reign, who was captivated by her beauty at a ball without them knowing that they shared a tragic past that will be a problem for them

3.75 Stars. While I really enjoyed most of the book, there were a few things that bugged me. One was Reign taking Sophia to live in the house where her parents were brutally murdered, and where she almost DIED. I would have been like "Hell no!" Then she says to Reign that she feels like something is wrong with the house and she thinks she is being ridiculous. I guess when it comes to the horrifying murders of her parents (and Gabriel's as well) she doesn't have the delicate sensibilities that I ...more

The first Alexandra Hawkins book I've read, I have to say that I was overall pleased with the book. While I can't claim she's my favorite writer of all time, and that I have to rush out and buy every book she's published right now, I can say that I did enjoy her work. Having read a couple books lately that have been completely horrid, it was refreshing to find a book that I did enjoy.
