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

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

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

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*

Annak dacára, hogy ez egy sorozat valamelyik közbülső darabja, nem okozott problémát a bekapcsolódás. A hőssel és a hősnővel azért nem voltam teljesen kibékülve. A hősök valahogy agyatlanná válnak, mikor szex kerül közelségbe. Ugyan kérem. A nő pontosan tudja, hogy a pasik csak használják a hölgyeket, és egész életében arra tanították, hogy ne dőljön be nekik. A pasinak meg semmi önuralma, miközben 28 éves, és a könyvtárszoba padlóján dönti meg… hagyjuk. Én nem hiszem el, hogy ne számolna valaki ...more

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

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.

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.

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

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 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
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

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.

Probably give it 3 and a half stars. Definitely she seems to be getting better as an author - much better than her first book. Kept my interest, although his family issues detracted a bit from the love story, with his former love and then another potential love interest before he and Regan get together..

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.

Story and Writing Style
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
