Devil's bride ; A rake's vow

She's the niece of Lady Bellamy, Vane's godmother, and is staying at her house with her brother Gerrard so nice to see him, he'll get his own book too. So, back to the story They are very much attracted to each other, and Vane has seduction on his mind don't they always. The strange happenings at the Bellamy manor only help his cause, he was asked to stay and investigate. He studied her, her eyes, her face, for one instant longer. D Anyway, what are they investigating? Well, there are thefts at the house, random things gone missing, and frequent appearances of the "Spectre", someone lurking in the ruins near the main house.

And I have to say, this was a re-read, but I actually forgot who done it!

Maybe because it was very Agatha Christie-like, you know, loads of characters in one house, something shifty going on, everyone's a suspect and all Patience Patience is trying to raise her brother to adulthood with no family she is the only one to do it , so she comes to her aunt's house in hope that he would be influenced by some of the men residing there.

She has a very strong aversion to polished, elegant gentlemen rakes, and in Vane Cynster she sees only bad things and doesn't want him anywhere near her brother, and she tells him exactly that.

I have a new favorite historical romance series!!

This would have been a 4. I love it when a rake falls in love because they tend to fall the hardest!! I enjoyed Vane Cynster but was not a fan of the heroine, Patience. She was naive and her actions were unbelievable. Her mother was head over heels in love with her father, to his embarrassment and always bragged about him being an "elegant gentleman". Well her father was a cheating, gambling, drinking, womanizer that ne I have a new favorite historical romance series!!

Well her father was a cheating, gambling, drinking, womanizer that never came home. So of course Patience naively believes that all "elegant gentleman" are cheating, gambling, drinking, womanizers. Vane is handsome, wealthy, and the perfect "elegant gentleman", so Patience was prejudiced against him from the start. She refused his marriage proposal multiple times and offered to be his lover after he popped her cherry.

Which made no sense considering she was from a respectable family.

And Vane was pissed!!! Born and bred. The position requirements are in your blood. This morning you spread your self for me. You wanted me and I wanted you. You gave your self to me. You took me in and I took you. I took your maidenhead. I took your virginity.

Get A Copy

What innocence you had I took that too. But that was only the opening act in our script carved in stone. The final act is a wedding. Or be more certain to drive him from her. For a man like him, with his background, his honor, to refuse to be his wife but consent to be his mistress was the ultimate low blow. To his pride, to his ego, to his self worth as a man. Aaaannd that is why Patience drove me crazy. She loved Vane but refused to marry him because all "elegant gentlemen" were to be avoided.

The author may have used "elegant gentleman" over fifty times because I got sick of hearing it! Don't get me wrong. I did like this book.

But did not love it half as much as Devil's. The insta love before getting to know Patience was a bit much. There was a mystery and it was solved with zero justice to the villains.

I also felt that this was the same plot as the previous book. Hero meets heroine and instantly knows he wants to marry her but she refuses. Heroine has sex with hero multiple times with total disregard to pregnancy as the hero continues to chase her all while solving a mystery on the side. Everyone knows they are having sex but turn blind eyes for some reason.

Heroine gets her shit together and they marry in the final chapter. View all 6 comments. Yes, I know, in this time, it's normal, and the title said it all, but there was no need to be mentioned basically in every page Another point was him considering making her his mistress, that didn't sit quite well with me.

So Laurens just took Devil's Bride and changed the names of the characters, right? Have I mentioned how sick to death I am of bitchy, obnoxious heroines who think they know everything and act like they're better than everyone else?

I liked Vane, of course, Laurens is pretty good at crafting compelling heroes, but her heroines need serious work. They're not endearing to the reader at all, just whiny, indecisive bags of shrewage.

There is a major difference between being an independent, willful, strong woman, and just downright being a jumpy, judgmental asshole.

I did not understand why he was so immediately besotted with the heroine. She was something of a cipher. I never got a good feel of her character or any strong She was pretty, that was about it. The mystery aspect was quite tedious. Not enough to hang a plot on at all. And like the f I think this will most likely be the last Laurens book I try.

And like the first book Devil's Bride in this series, the author pretty much gives everybody hints big enough to paint billboards on about who the perpetrator is.

So simply reading to see when the protagonists figure it out is a chore. The main thing, though, that aggravated me to no end in this book is the heroine's steadfast refusal to marry the hero because he, as we are told, ad nauseum, is an 'elegant gentleman' just like her father.

The heroine's father ignored his family because he was busily off in London being elegant, thus causing the heroine to choose to never marry. This is added to the fact that she had no problems boinking him whenever and wherever. I had major problems with a woman of her time, class and upbringing being so cavalier about sex and having no qualms about the possible consequences.

And yet she would not even consider marrying him. It struck me as odd and wrong. I was also bored. Jan 04, Lauren rated it really liked it Shelves: He should have known that one cannot escape their destiny, which comes in the guise of Patience Debbington, a woman who certainly knows her own mind and has no intention of giving up her independence for the likes of an elegant gentleman such as Vane Cynster.

Although the fated mates trope is somewhat out of place in a historical romance novel, it seems to work here with Vane and Patience struggling against the inevitable. Both are very appealing characters and their romance is certainly passionate. One problem, however, is their distinct lack of communication skills. Neither seems capable of opening up to the other to reveal their feelings, which could have saved a lot of unnecessary angst and allowed room for the suspense plot to develop.

The secondary characters are fleshed out well and contribute to the intriguing Agatha Christie-like country estate mystery atmosphere of the story. It is disappointing that the Cynster family does not play as significant a role in this book as in the previous one but the glimpses we get are wonderful. As said, the minor suspense story takes too long to get going and the culprits are fairly obvious from the start - view spoiler [Kleptomania is usually committed by women, and Alice is a prime suspect.

All in all, an enjoyable sequel and I look forward to continuing with the series. Como dice el dicho, si a uno le van a dar ni aunque se quite!!! Sep 19, Quirky Omega rated it liked it Shelves: And so another one of the Cynster males wholeheartedly falls into the love-shackles of matrimony.

Plot At the beginning of the book Vane can already be seen running like a headless cock. His behaviour gives the feeling as if fate is a real, live physical entity that is going to pounce on him, anytime. He fears that he's the next in line to be accosted by the love-bug. And as any romance reader knows, rakish heroes must pretend to be running away from love.

But a storm forces him to take refuge at h And so another one of the Cynster males wholeheartedly falls into the love-shackles of matrimony. But a storm forces him to take refuge at his Godmother's residence and there he meets the alluring Patience Debbington. Right in the first look and the first touch, it becomes evident, fate has decreed its will on him.

Love is in the air. My Opinion The book strongly reminded me of Kristen Ashley's characters. So much so that if Rock chick was ever to be based in early 19th century England's nobility, one would find something like the Cynster series.

Same arrogant, bad-ass heroes and similarly stubborn women. And lots of baby and family loving works. The women are classy, gorgeous mamas not actual mamas-geez! Unfortunately this also means that there are times when you'll feel it is not historically accurate enough.

An issue that I did not have with the first book. Despite that, the dialogues save it from being a contemporary. The book had its own share of light mystery and lots of hot embraces.

This is the second book from the Bar Cynster series, and another great one too. Vane is a typical Cynster. Vane is another Cynster that will take away your mind, soul, and body again. It's the second book of the Cynster series. Patience is a thoroughly sympathetic heroine, and the intrigue and mystery here is fairly well crafted and fun to follow.

Patience--I don't think I ever got over the fact that her name is a virtue--Debbington was a charming enough heroine. I don't think I loved the fact that she would readily throw hersel Vane is another Cynster that will take away your mind, soul, and body again. I don't think I loved the fact that she would readily throw herself all over Vane the moment he walks in.

I guess I'm not really going to forget those two characters. When Vane mentioned the orangery that his mother owned, I remembered Honoria and Devil dancing there because it wasn't permitted to dance while in mourning.

A rake's vow

Anyway, as you might see in this review, I clearly loved the first Cynster novel and this one less but still loved it anyway. I'm continuing the series. A Rake's Vow is the second installment in the Cynster series. Tip to readers, read the series chronologically. You won't get lost if you happen to read somewhere in the middle but it's really more fun to know the previous characters.

That's why I scoured the internet and book shops for this book. And when I had found it, I didn't regret all those months of searching.

I liked this more this time than the first time I read it. Ahhh, Vane and Patience. The problem I had with this story was their inability to say 3 small words I am hungry.

The words were "I love you". She loved him, but wouldn't put herself out there and say it. He loved her, but was too manly to put those feelings into words. She wouldn't agree to marry him without hearing the words, and wouldn't tell him what s ETA: She wouldn't agree to marry him without hearing the words, and wouldn't tell him what she wanted from him to agree.

He wanted to show her his feelings.

It finally took Patience's aunt, Vane's godmother, Minnie, to make them both see what they needed to so they could get to the alter. In the background was this little mystery going on. Things kept disappearing from Minnie's guests belongings. Oh, there was also this "spector" flashing lights outside Minnie's home at night. They traveled all the way to London to flush out the culprit.

It worked ; I like how there's a mystery in the background of the love story. It was the same in the first book of the series, and I wonder if this will be through the whole series.Felicity knew Demon was one of the ton's most eligible bachelors and a rogue of the worst sort, but he was the only one capable of getting her friend out of trouble.

Demon remembers Felicity as a mere chit of a girl, but now she stands before him--begging for his help--all lush curves, sparkling eyes and so temptingly worthy of the love he's vowed never to surrender to any woman.

BUT, lucky her, she sees she was in the wrong and decides to explore their sensual relationship.

This morning you spread your self for me. But Honoria wasn't about to bend society's demands and marry a man just because they'd been found together virtually unchaperoned.
