aq suka baca novel2 ttg scoundrel yg begitu jatuh cinta lgs bertekuk lutut ^_^ apalagi sama ceweq yg kuat & ga gampang mewek, wah fave ku banget tuh.

Lady Regan, adik dr frost, Earl chillingworth, sejak kecil sudah ditinggalkan sang ayah yg kemudian sang ibu pergi meninggalkan regan & frost sendirian sejak regan masih kecil.
otomatis frost lah yg membesarkan regan. well sebenarnya bukan cuma frost aja yg membesarkan regan tp juga ada Sin, Vane, Hunter, Saint, Dare and Reign or lebih dikena

Was flipping through it at the library and "nubbin" appeared twice in the same paragraph.

Twice.

This is the third book of "Lords of Vice" series, and there are seven of them. Lords of Vice are seven friends, very close, more like brothers. All seven are titled, rich, Rouges, Rakes and Scoundrels and very proud of it. Rules for these men are there in order to be broken.

We meet all of them, (Sin, Vane, Hunter, Saint, Frost, Dare and Reign) in "All Night with a Rogue", where we can't but fall in love with Sin, who is one sick Rogue. I just loved everything about that story. All the character

This one was less painful than the other NRCA books I was chosen to read, but not by much. I expected to enjoy this one far more than I did. It was a real disappointment.
Lover of Romance
Lady Regan, was raised by her brother, a member of the Lords of Vice. As such she grew up learning to climb trees, fishing, fencing lessons and gambling. Regan is not your typical English miss. But when Regan and "Dare" are caught kissing, her brother sends her away to school and for five years she has been patient. Regan was hurt when her brother sent her away, and from the only family she has ever known. Now she is ready to take part of the Season, and put her brother in his place a bit, and s ...more

I love when I finish a book with a huge smile on my face and a feeling of contentment - and that is exactly how I felt after reading After Dark with a Scoundrel.

Dare is a man with deep loyalty - even when that loyalty goes against his own wishes. He has troubles with his family, but everytime he is called on for help he will always eventually cave - no matter how much personal pain it causes him. He is also loyal to his friends - the Lords of Vice - and debauchery aside, is an all around good g

This book is great. It was what I needed. An amazing historical romance. It had ballrooms, the heros found themselves in compromising positions, a notorious gent, the ton and everything else I expect from a novel of this genre... *dreamy eyes*

I really expected a lot more than just good writing.
There is no plot, a meh storyline and unlikable characters.
The H/h are both so shallow you can't glimpse any depth in the character and it's really hard to.connect with them.
Regan was meant to be fiery lady who means to attract Dare with wit and charm alas there is not one scene where any of these characteristics are shown. I dont recall any part of the book where I felt she was a lady.
As for Dare he kisses her, abondons her, kisses her, goes t

All righty, the third book in the Lord of Vices series After Dark with a Scoundrel by Alexandra Hawkins. I have to say this is my favorite so far out of the five (since there is only five at this time) and I haven't gotten to the fifth book yet.

Overview:

We meet up with a precocious 15 year old Lady Regan Alice Bishop who is helping Vane in making fireworks. Well, she's not paying any attention and accidentally sets the kitchen in Nox on fire.

After Dark with a Scoundrel is the first book I have read by author, Alexandra Hawkins. It is also book three in her Lords of Vice series. Even though the book is a quick read it was well written. The storyline was good. The book is about the young Lady Regan who has been raised by her older brother and his roguish friends, known as the Lords of Vice. She is a wild and unruly young girl. Her brother sends her to a lady’s school when she is 15 out of love and fear that Regan is being influenced t ...more

A nice, kind of short historical romance.

But I did have some issues at first. Some very disturbing things mentioned. Regan grew up with the Lords of Vice, scoundrels all of them. Ok nothing wrong there. That thing came when Dare thought back about how he stopped swimming with her at 13 cos he felt something...ok euwwww! She was 13, you were 21! I can forgive you for kissing her at 15, but that is still, ok no. I tried to put that behind me so I could enjoy the book.

She comes back at 20 and he do

I started out really enjoying this one in the series - It was very good - but I felt a little disappointed when I finished it, I was expecting certain things to happen - certain bust ups that didnt .... bust up and I felt a lot of opertunity was missed on following through with some plot twists - or going into things deeply enough.

Despite this I did still enjoy the book - there were some beautiful moments and some funny ones - the wrapping everything up at the end was extremley rushed - and I fe

There's a difference between rogue and unrepentant jerk and this hero crossed that line for me.

It's already mildly uncomfortable that he was close to her when she was growing up and remembers kind of lusting after her when she walked out of a lake in nothing but her wet shift when she was thirteen. He was twenty one. To his credit, he stopped hanging around her then, but really? Thirteen? That's kind of creepy. And yet for all his noble intentions to steer clear of her and keep his hands to hims

The series peaks here IMO. Decent use of some of my favourite tropes-such as best-friend's-little-sister and friends-to-lovers.

It still had a lot of issues. For one, it's pretty unbelievable that someone as volatile as Frost is about the few things he cares about in the world, would have taken Regan and Dare's sneaky HEA as lightly as he did. Yes, I get that he wants Regan to be happy always, but my God I was looking forward to a scene where Frost very silkily and calmly tells Dare they're takin

Another "her brother's bestfriend" story. I didn't know why but my enthusiasm about that kind of story is apparently plain and real. Well, I just didn't expect this would be better than the book 1 and 2. Alexandra Hawkins keep on suprising me as this series goes. It's getting better and better. And I adore the hero and heroine so much! If not for Frost, I would fancy myself in love with Dare! Why, the man CARED too much about Regan even before and even kind enough to bother teaching her how to s ...more

Love this series. I think this is my favorite so far. I can't wait till the next book.This is about Dare and Frost's sister, Regan. She always fancied Dare, but was too young and her brother sent her away to finishing school after a failed chemical experiment. She came back a women and Dare finally allowed himself to fall in love with her. Great story.

4.5 Stars. Loved this. The ending was a bit abrupt but still an awesome romantic tale.
Maria
My favorite Lord of Vice out of the four I've read!. I need to read the rest of the series.
Cristina
It was an okay reading. In some parts, I felt the author could've expand a little bit more. (Especially when it came to the Epilogue)
Then, there were a few scenes I didn't coming....

1. First kiss
2. First night together
3. Marriage


I think the most shocking part was how he chose to marry her.



In any case, if anything could've been improved would've been the lack of romance. Granted they had a few steamy scenes but nothing that could replace two couples falling in love. I didn't see or felt how th

This is the third Lords of Vice story in which we get the story Lord Hugh Mordare - more commonly referred to as Dare - and Regan Bishop. Regan also happens to the younger sister of another Lord of Vice, Frost.

The story starts 5 years in the past when we see a 15 year old Regan getting up to mischief with a few members of the Lords of Vice. After a small accident, Regan is comforted by Dare and it leads to a kiss. They are caught by her brother, Frost, and an older matronly cousin and it results

I love a good scoundrel story, especially when the scoundrel is more than what he seems, has a conscience meter despite what the ton thinks or believes about him. We get to see that other side of him and still enjoy his scoundrel-ness before he gives up all for love. It’s always fun to watch him realize little by little he no longer wants his previous way of life any longer, that that life isn’t worth losing the best thing to ever happen to him. Alexandra Hawkins has given us Dare in this latest ...more

Regan is the sister of one of the Lords of Vice and happens to also be in love with one of them. When her brother catches her and Dare kissing he sends her off to a school for young ladies where she stays for five years. Against her brothers wishes Regan returns to London on a quest to seduce Dare.

Even though the author tells us that is Regan's quest I really didn't get that from the story. I found more often that not Regan try to duck Dare's advances. I was a little confused by that. Also thes

The third in Hawkins’ “Lords of Vice” series. I will confess, I read this book in its proper order, but did not write a review until after the not-so-positive one I had written earlier today on a later tome in the series. As such, I thought it was best that I went back to reread some parts to confirm what I originally thought of this book: it was very, very good.

I won’t be able to keep my biased opinion of “Dusk with a Dangerous Duke” out of this review, so please forgive
