    On a Wicked Dawn2 StarsDetermined to marry the only man she has ever loved Amelia Cynster finally works up the courage to propose to Luc Ashford under the pretense of a marriage of convenience Astonished when he agrees Amelia's preference is for an immediate wedding but Luc has other ideas and insists on wooing his betrothed in public and in private Similar to the previous book about Amelia's twin On a Wicked Dawn begins well but ultimately falls apart mainly due to the fact that there is no actual plotThe majority of the storyline focuses on Luc's repetitious ridiculous and tedious internal angst What is it with Laurens' heroes and their reluctance to admit loving their wives because they fear being manipulated? They really need to get over themselvesIn addition the keeping secret trope is one of the absurd in the genre Luc refuses to tell Amelia the truth about his financial circumstances and leaves her to believe he is a pauper He fears telling her he's as rich as Croesus and didn't marry her for her money Seriously?The minor mystery is woefully underdeveloped and the culprit is obvious from the first moment Moreover the sex scenes are repetitive and mechanical and lose their charm very uickly In fact this is one big purple prose sex fest  All in all a very disappointing installment and I can only hope that the next one is better

    So so awful After the amazingness of On a Wild Night this was so incredibly bad I'm not sure who I hated Luc or Amelia Amelia was so completely opposite of her sister that I found it hard to believe they were twins and that she was the same person that was in the previous book And Luc was a detestable hero He was awful to Amelia throughout most of the book I would honestly consider some of his behavior towards her emotionally abusive And it killed me every time she allowed it to happen The mystery thrown into this one felt the most disjointed of all the Cynster books to date and completely seemed like something the author threw in after the fact It most definitely did not add anything to the story The resolution of one of the main conflicts of the book occurred within the span of a few paragraphs Oh I've lied to you this whole time but now you will not only forgive me but make it seem as though it was all your fault Oh yes my love it has to be my fault after all you're so perfect and I'm but a lowly female Good now get naked and let me have sex with youThe sex was definitely plentiful but so so boring No matter what horrible thing Luc said to her or how awful he made her feel about things all it took was one stab of his tongue into her cavernous honeypot of a mouth and she opened her legs to him and all was forgiven I've had some good sex in my life but no man would ever get away with treating me the way he treats her by simply giving me an orgasm or twoI skimmed a good 50% of this book and from reading other reviews I'm apparently not missing anything

    Amelia Cynster has a plan to make Lucien Ashford her husband I can only hope that she will be as manipulative as her twin AmandaThis story had great potential but lacked something that I can't place my finger on The sex was hot and the hero was very dominant and possessive without all the BDSM There was a bit of angst but no spice I was interested in the mystery of the thief than Lucien's confession of loveDon't be fooled by the 3 star rating There were wonderful elements thought this book and I loved all the cameos from previous couples The Cynters have been wonderfully entertaining and this loving family Stephanie Laurens created ranks as one of my favorites

    Stephanie Laurens is back with the next instalment in the Cynster series and it’s a good one In book number 9 we get to know the other half of the twin set Amelia Having already learnt Amanda’s story in book 8 Amelia comes to the forefront This is a story about love trust and honesty Amelia is a lovely well rounded character who’s journey into seduction and being seduced by the handsomely masculine Luc is a pleasantly succulent read One thing that stands out in this book is that you get to see the characters after they this really shouldn’t be a spoiler get married Generally in this series the marriage is the end the story is how they get to that point mostly ending when the male realises he’s in love However this story is different we get the story of adjusting into marriage and it really is a welcoming change There is of course a little bit of mystery sprinkled throughout but it is not overwhelming and does not takes away the essence of the romance The trouble with writing a romance series is that by the ninth book it can all get a bit samey This does not seem to be the case with these pesky Cynsters Laurens continually brings her stories to the table and I am loving each one than the last This novel is romance in the finest form the whole series is a masterpiece of regency fluffy love Each book in the series has a game of lust running throughout you know what will happen in the end marriage however it is the journey Laurens takes you on to get there The only downfall of this book was the dishonesty section I was expecting a explosive passionate argument but it was not to be I suppose that regency vibe keeps those ladies in check Overall it is a lovely series to read and book 9 is a wonderful compliment to the series I wonder who is up next

    I know I've said this uite a few times while reading this seriesBUTTHIS IS SERIOUSLY one of the best historicals I've ever readI have to point out that Stephanie Laurens is the ueen of kissing scenes Like the actual goddess Most of her books have such detailed make out sessions that they will leave you hot and bothered And most of the book was them doing some sort of tongue duel or rubbing all over or sexing each otherno complaints it was super hotThis book was no exception to the Cynster awesomenessAmelia has been in love with Luc for the longest time When she learns that he is destitute she finally gears up courage and decides to offer herself and her dowry for his hand in marriageSurprisingly he agreesThe attraction is mutualThe chemistry is SCORCHINGThe love making scenes and the kisses are insanely hotI loved the interaction between the main couple and that the plot focused on them Luc always thought he had things in control but Amelia was always one step ahead and left him breathless and that is refreshing to read in a bookThis series has given me so many favorite books this is another feather in that hatview spoiler on a major event we finally get Devil's confession of love to Honoria After 8 books Wooo hide spoiler

    I worked hard at typing a review for this and the stupid internet connection went off on me and I lost it all I am not going to rewrite a whole 300 word review for something that got so very much on my nerves that they are now all suished into two dimensional stuff floating around in my bodyA domineering and boorish hero and a subservient but shrewd and manipulative heroine Not a great combination Not at all

    Re read 2018I'm not feeling the best and wanted to pick up a re read I think this is my favorite book in the Cynster series I've been drawn to the Cynster twins since they first appeared in Devil's Bride I liked Amelia's romance better than Amanda's but both books in this duology are interesting Amelia proposes to a family friend because she's unable to find another man in the ton that she likes This book focuses on how she and Lucian Ashford's relationship evolves It's a slightly cheesy very saucy regency romance Just the thing when you want some light readingRe read 2019I felt the need to dip back into Lucian and Amelia's story this is one book in the series that I keep coming back to even if I don't pick up the series for a re read

    Pretty standard Stephanie Laurens This one is about Amelia one of the twins I really liked the backstory for Amelia and Luc She's preferred him as husband material all her life but eliminated all possible other choices before springing her offer on him The second twin Amelia sets out to marry Luc For the most part I enjoyed the story and I love the brief glimpses of how earlier characters are faring Amelia and Lucien are so wonderful together He is a man most suitable for the Cynster side he has the same ualities of honor duty and daredevil courage Well lets say everything going according to plans Amelia's happy but in denial And Luc is happy but fill with indecision He wants to tell Amelia that he isn't really poor but without telling her his marrying her because he loves her He's trying to keep it for her till the last moment Can love really be base in lies His very starting a life with someone and his already lying to her Like his mom and Demon told him that it's only get worse But I get him his scared that she'll decide to not to marry him At least for a little while she's gong to get mad but it will pass if she does love him right The plot seems very classic an offer for a marriage of convenience to which both parties agree both convinced from the first place that convenience is not on their agenda and they expect from the deal However classic and light I really liked this one I loved this edition in the Cynster series but I do feel that Laurens's novels can get a bit repetitive and she could do with a different tack in some of them but I do really like the background mysteries that bring the couples together I found this book a very satisfying read of historical romance As in her other books there are sensuous love scenes this book having of them as well as explicit than in the other Laurens books I've readRecommendations ;

    The only thing that came to me while forcing myself to read and finish which took me a very long time this book was boredom There were no real plot or at least the execution of the story could have been done in a book half the size of this one The story is about a young girl who has always been in love with a man thus man never looking at her as than his sister's friend So taking advantage of her false knowlege of his family ruination she decided to offer herself to him a mariage for a title and a safe husband in exchange of her dowry For reason I didn't undestand as at that point he didn't need her dowry and supposedly had no feeling for her he accepts her proposal Thus follows Lucien going about trying to seduce Amelia which serves no real purpose as she is already in love with him even if he doesn't know it yet all the while spending too much time trying to fight the feelings he is developping for herBut the very source of my boredom was the repetitiveness There was a sex scene; then scene of Lucien thinking about it how too much he liked it how he doesn't want to like it that much why does he like it that much how he doesn't want Amelia to know how much he liked it; then scene of Amelia thinking about it too how she wants it to happen again; then another sex scene And so on and so on And the little paragraphes of the mystery secondary plot put here and there in the story seemed so out of place that they didn't grab my attention
