Image of After Dark with a Scoundrel: Lords of Vice

Those sexy Lords of Vice return as another member of Nox’s Gentlemen’s Club is caught in a maze of love and danger. Hawkins’ talent for perfectly merging gothic elements into a sexually charged romance are showcased along with the marvelous cast of characters taking readers on a thrill ride.

Lord Hugh Mordare, second son of the Duke of Rhodes, aka Dare, has known Lady Regan Bishop very well. As the sister of his close friend, Frost, Regan was an honorary member of Nox’s Gentlemen’s Club. But the day he kisses her changes everything. Regan is sent away and Dare returns to his life of “sin.” Five years at a boarding school has done nothing to dim Regan’s high spirits or her penchant for trouble. She arrives in London to bedevil her brother and seduce Dare. The first she accomplishes with ease; however Dare is determined to protect Regan from scoundrels like himself. But he cannot prevent the sizzle of desire from exploding, or Regan’s determination to undo his resolve and uncover his dark secrets. When they marry Regan is caught in a web of jealousy, murder and madness. (ST. MARTIN’S, Feb., 304 pp., $7.99)
