Book Description

Renowned storyteller Gaelen Foley unfurls the seductive tale of the rakish Lord Alec Knight, who never looked for love–until it was right in front of him. . . .

Lord Alec Knight, the most daring and handsome rogue in all of London, is a smooth-talking aristocrat with an abundance of high-society lady admirers. With his irresistible wit, lucky hand at the gaming tables, and enticing charisma, he can have any woman he wants. But when the only girl he would have considered marrying ties the knot with someone else, Alec realizes he doesn’t want to be with just any lady–he wants to find the love of his life.

The boldly spirited, beautiful Miss Becky Ward takes his life by storm after he rescues her from peril. Alec soon learns that she is on the run from her cousin, the murderous Prince Mikhail Kurkov. Becky has uncovered a menacing secret about the prince–now nothing will stop him from hunting her down. In the midst of danger, Alec and Becky find themselves deeply drawn to each other. After the two spend an all-consuming night of sin, Becky’s knight in shining armor vows on his honor to protect her until the end. But before long, Alec is protecting her with more than honor–and it seems the once untamed rake of London just may have found what he has been searching for all along . . . true love.

From the Paperback edition.

I've read and enjoyed (to one degree or another) every book Ms Foley has ever written. I love her heroes in particular - smart, sexy, brave, often tortured and usually with a sense of humor. Readers of this series are very familiar with Lord Alec Knight. He's a rakehell to be sure and has done some pretty unsavory things. He whores, he gambles, he drinks to excess and he's arrogant and proud as hell. His worst crime of course, was breaking his sister's best friend Lizzie Carlisle's heart (in Lady of Desire). But second to that is the year he spent "servicing" wealthy, wicked widow Lady Campion in exchange for her paying off his gambling debts.

Ever since losing Lizzie to one of his friends (Strathmore in Devil Takes a Bride), Alec has been in a sort of funk. Things he used to enjoy he now finds tiresome. His faith in humankind is about nil as, in his experience, no one is innocent. One evening he and his friends discover a young woman asleep on a stoop and, of course, take her for a whore. They wake her, but she doesn't look or act like a whore (at least not a practiced one) to Alec and he warns his friends to back off to no avail. After some well-placed kicks and punches, she takes off running. Alec pursues her to ensure that she is alright, and because it's the most interesting thing that's happened to him lately. He catches up with her and determines that there is an air of innocence about her regardless of her profession and he decides to take her home with him. It's been months since he's had a woman and he wants her. She decides to go with him for reasons of her own . . .

She is Rebecca Ward and she is in some serious trouble. She's come to London from her country home in Yorkshire to report a crime.

4.0 out of 5 stars All in all a very good read! June 29, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Alec was quite a rake - I mean being a kept man is probably reacing the very bottom even during the Regency period. I was really angry with Alec when he tried to interfere with Lizzie and Devlin because I loved them as a couple so much. I don't think I truly understood how low Alec's life was until this book - he was not the usual rake still able to live a high life - he was rock bottom broke and seemed to be in more than just a minor funk - enter Becky and it is true - sometime real love can in fact turn a rake around. When Alec meets Becky, his life has purpose, he has a chance to be a hero, to really be needed. It was wonderful watching their love bloom - I mean he was fascinated by Becky - just everything about her made him happy. The love scenes in this book sizzled - this couple truly had chemistry!!! It was great to see Lady Champion finally get her just due - she was beyond annoying. Enjoyed too Alec's friends - they could have books of their own. Would have enjoyed a little more of Alec's family at the end - those reunions are special in these series books - and Alec really had missed his family. All in all this was a super book - those who like Foely will not be disappointed!

3.0 out of 5 stars Reformed rakes make boring heroes November 3, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was intrigued by the idea of seeing Alec Knight, the baby and wastrel of his family, become the hero of this novel. I also liked the first section of the novel, where he and Becky first meet (though I too didn't care for her name). His roguish charm, the sexy interplay, and the tension between them kept the plot going strong. Once he becomes self-aware with the help of her rather unconvincing unconditional love, the interest lags for me. We were just waiting for him to say I love you and the murder plot to unravel. The romantic tension was lost. The plot of the story itself loses fire because of the gaming focus. As the backdrop to the action, it's fine, but cards in themselves are not the most fascinating of subjects, and not manly enough for the heroic rescue. That is why it was critical to maintain the tension between the two lovers. I agree also that the actions are ludicrously anachronistic, with Becky, the daughter of an aristocrat, in particular acting like a novice porn star before nonscandalized servants, with nary a care! The graphic sex isn't a problem; it is the over-the-top mushiness that did the intimate scenes in for me. The excessive use of pet names and endearments just wasn't convincing, on her part especially. It was tough to imagine the original Alec living ever after in this sentimental bliss. This hero need to be more alpha male. That is what made him "icky" for me.

The best of the Knight series is The Duke, with Master of Desire a far second, although he becomes emasculated by his position too. In short, Foley has one great novel in this series, but the rest failed to match it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best yet! June 11, 2005
By Rachel
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ms. Foley has done it again. Her new book outdoes the rest in the Knight Series, as they keep getting better and better.

In "One Night of Sin," readers will be swept away to a fantasy world where love, lust, pride, conviction, beauty, danger, corruption, murder, adventure, and conspiracy abound. The brave and beautiful heroine, Becky, is just the kind of spitfire who can take care of herself that we love to see overcoming obstacles. Alec, the hero, delivers the sexy, playful, man-in-control who saves the day that every woman fantasizes about. But on top of all the adventure, the plot-twists, the humor, the delightful dialogue, and the steamy love-making, these characters show the complexity and truth of the human condition; vulnerability, fear, shame, determination, and the will to survive against all the odds.

"One Night of Sin" is the best piece of fiction I've read in a long time. I couldn't put it down, but couldn't bear it being all over when I reached the last page.

Thank you -- yet again -- Ms. Foley.
