Review: Sunrise with a Notorious Lord

Sunrisewithanotoriouslord“Sunrise with a Notorious Lord” by Alexandra Hawkins (historical, St. Martins, January 2012, $7.99, 304pp)

 

Series: the Lords of Vice

  • “All Night with a Rogue” – Juliana and Sin
  • “Til Dawn with the Devil” – Sophia and Reign

Review:
The meddling mother is a staple character in romance novels, and Alexandra Hawkins plays on this theme in her latest installment of the Lords of Vice series, “Sunrise with a Notorious Lord.” The Marchioness of Netherley wants her son, Christopher Courtland, Earl of Vanewright, to marry, and she isn’t afraid to pull out all the stops to ensure a successful campaign. These machinations give “Sunrise with a Notorious Lord” an entertaining twist that makes this romance one to remember.

"All Night with a Rogue" (Historical, St. Martin's Paperbacks, 316 pages, $7.99), by Alexandra Hawkins: To escape an impudent ball escort, Lady Juliana Ivers, gown and all, becomes snagged in a hazel tree. If that's not troubling enough, she becomes an unwilling witness to a couple canoodling a few feet below.

Alexius "Sin" Braverton, the Marquess of Sinclair, notices the tree-bound Juliana and discreetly ends his rendezvous with a married lover to focus on the mysterious woman above. Although put off by his lascivious behavior, Juliana is nonetheless attracted by his virile charm. After helping her to get free, he asks for her name, but before he can learn her identity, she races inside to rejoin her family.


"All Night with a Rogue," the first installment of Alexandra Hawkins' Lords of Vice series, captivates from the first chapter.
