From the Back Cover
Wickedly charming and wildly seductive, the Lords of Vice live for the thrill of the hunt―even as they're making their way down the aisle…
HIS BACHELOR DAYS ARE NUMBERED
They were children when the Duke of Huntsley was introduced to Lady Grace Kearly. The young duke―nicknamed "Hunter"―took one look at his future bride and thought only of escaping his responsibilities to his family. Marriage was for grown-ups and Hunter still had years of skirt-chasing ahead of him. But now the time has come for Hunter to heed the call: If this Lord of Vice hopes to keep all of his inheritance, he'll have to claim his long-neglected betrothed…
HER WEDDING PLANS DON'T INCLUDE HIM
With her twenty-first birthday approaching, Lady Grace dreads the thought of marrying the duke she has met only once―especially since he's grown into a notorious rake who will probably beget his heir and abandon her in the country while he pursues fresh game in London. So when Lady Grace coolly decides to call the wedding off, even Hunter is surprised by his refusal to let her go. Suddenly, the notion of claiming and taming this green-eyed beauty is one challenge he cannot resist…
"Romantic and erotic…the Lords of Vice series is hot enough to curl your toes!"
―Celeste Bradley, New York Times bestselling author of When She Said I Do

I did not like either character. Hunter was rude, harsh, domineering, rude and a braggart. Yes I meant to type rude twice. He was rude to his friends and everyone else repeatedly. Then all was to be forgiven with a blase apology. Over half the book took place without Hunter and Grace having met as adults. 19 years passed in a turn of a page. The history was repeatedly rehashed and retold until the very last of the book when all was explained. Grace was about to turn 21 and everything had to be completed by then because of the terms of the contract. We know nothing about this young woman who lived alone with only tutors and servants. She literally just walks onto the page and starts giving orders. She has decided to void the contract because Hunter has not come to see her in 19 years. We next find her in London 2 weeks later buying flowers for her visit to a friend's home and accidentally runs into Hunter. They do not know each other of course and flirt with each other.Read more ›
It takes a LOT for me NOT to buy the last book in a series; for first time in years I have been persuaded - painfully - NOT to pre-order, NOT to buy; I will wait to see reviews first, possibly just walk away from the "last page" of this series/story.
Wow, what a shocking disappointment. I thought surely this would at least be a step up from "All Afternoon with a Scandalous Marquess". Not aiming too high, right? So, so wrong.
This was a hodgepodge. The story was not fleshed out, did not gel. The interactions were...lacking. And that is being kind.
Alexandra Hawkins seems to have the talent to do better. Did she use up her creativity and sense of purpose a few books back? Perhaps. Is she under the gun time-wise? Most likely. Honestly I would not bother ranting if I did not hope her future work will improve. The beginnings of "Lords of Vice" were such fun, if a bit juvenile for me at times (painfully florid, unusually flattering nicknames push my limits).
Larger Series-level Aside as follows: I have learned to live [unhappily] with the gaping holes in the field of editorship - do these romance "publishers" now just run Spell-check and leave it at that? Is it just the Kindle edition that is always so chockfull of errors? - so not too surprised with this series' repeat appearances of some jarring, wince-worthy, yanking-you-out-of-story-immersion grammatical errors and typos.Read more ›
First of all, I found it difficult to keep track of the characters from the previous books, and I've read them all! I can only imagine the heightened confusion of readers who are not familiar with the series. There are a total of seven Lords of Vice, and with five marriages already, the extended cast of characters gets too much mention, to the detriment of this story. The author expects readers to understand the motivations of her characters based on a previous reading of her other books. Frankly, I read enough regencies that character names get all mixed up and I don't want to have to remember an entire series to enjoy a new book, and I certainly don't want to have to re-read the whole thing before picking up the latest.
This book also suffers from having too much of the story take place off the page. And I don't even mean that the narrator tells us what happens. Instead, weeks just pass with the reader not being given any information about what happened. Every time I thought we would get to something interesting, the narrator would indicate that things went on for a few weeks. And these "things" weren't clarified. For example, a presumably important conversation (the one that actually results in the marriage) doesn't even happen for the reader.Read more ›
