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

Alexandra Hawkins is an excellent writer but with that said, does no one proof read anymore? I found so many errors; no instead of not, his instead of hers, words actually repeated and the list goes on. It really breaks the flow of reading when you stumble over the mistakes. Okay, now to the story. After reading the other 5 books in the series Lords of Vice, I was looking forward to Hunter's story. The first books of the series were very good and you couldn't wait to pick up the next one. Saint's story, in number 5, was a huge disappointment. So you would think after the reviews of Ms. Hawkins reading public, she would sit down and really give this book, #6 in the series, her dedicated focus to produce a product equal to, or better than, her earlier series books. She failed. Only Frost's story is left. Keep your fingers crossed.
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.

I must say that I am a fan of A. Hawkins' other books in this series. This was a big disappointment for me. I waited for months for the title come out, and I was looking forward to it. My kindle copy had many errors in grammar that drive me crazy. The storyline had little tension between the main characters and all of a sudden, poof, they fell in love. I saw none of the tension building and growth of their love through some sort of interaction. The sex scenes left much to be desired too, I didn't see the attraction between them at all. This title seemed like it was a rush to finish or something. I still have high hopes for Frost's story/ backstory and the woman who can finally bring him to heel! Wait to get this one at the library, it was not one I would ever reread, unlike the others in the series

I love the lord vice series, and was really looking forward to hunters story. The writing is still great as always, kept me turning the pages hoping for a redemption from our hero but none ever came.He was a completely high handed & I would have forgiven him if he had justified his actions in the name of love. I was completely shocked when he declared his love. I just never saw it coming it was so unbelievable I laughed out loud. I saw more of a connection between our h & Frost (another lord vice). I would have preferred the h would request the marriage be void and pursue Frost.

I just read review after review on Amazon reflecting the same conclusion as those after the last book; to paraphrase, the reader is "disappointed but will STILL buy the last book because he/she is convinced the story of Frost will be epic and will redeem all...and how can they miss that"? Not THIS reader. Alexandra Hawkins has killed my curiosity and this is its obit.

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.

I have enjoyed the previous books in Alexandra Hawkins's Lords of Vice series, particularly the last one featuring a younger woman who had fallen in love with one of her brother's best friends. Hawkins has done a great job of taking familiar tropes and spinning them into distinctly separate tales of each man and his discovery of love. So I was really looking forward to this latest installment which features an arranged marriage between an innocent and a rake. I was quite underwhelmed with the results.

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.
