FLAWLESS! Yes, the all-caps are entirely necessary to express how perfectly wonderful the latest in Alexandra HawkinsLords of Vice series, AFTER DARK WITH A SCOUNDREL actually is.


Young, tender, and highly impressionable, Lady Regan can’t help but be intrigued by her brother’s wayward friends—the wickedly charming Lords of Vice. One man in particular, the dashing Lord Hugh Mordare, known simply as “Dare” among the ton, utterly captivates her—in spite of his reputation as a notorious womanizer. But when she steals an innocent kiss from Dare, Regan is swiftly packed off to boarding school, safely away from danger…and desire. 


Five years later, Regan returns—a proper lady and ravishing beauty. Miss Swann’s Academy for Young Ladies has taught her how to behave in polite society. But all the training in the world cannot extinguish her love for Dare. Now, she hopes to beat the master of seduction at his own game—by daring Dare to love her in return. This time, both of their hearts are on the line…and winner takes all.”

…guaranteed to warm the cockles of your heart…

From first page to last, Regan and Dare’s story is guaranteed to warm the cockles of your heart, make your toes curl at the easy sensuality between this couple and at times, make you laugh out loud from the witty dialog. Although it is some of the smaller moments of quiet, caring affection between Regan and Dare that really sell the perfection of this pairing and make you wish there were dozens of extra chapters to let you continue in their company for just a little longer.

If you haven’t already done so, do yourself a favor and look for books one and two of this series, ALL NIGHT WITH A ROGUE and TILL DAWN WITH THE DEVIL before/after reading AFTER DARK WITH A SCOUNDREL. Although, each book is pretty self-contained as a stand alone, it would be a shame to miss out on any of the romantic adventures of these glorious Lords of Vice.
