    I really enjoyed this book, but then again I love a good scandal with a devilish hot wicked man, so this one hit the spot. This book gave me a mystery, emotions, excitement and lots of suspires. I just really wish I would have read the first novel, because the first part was a little confusing, then I caught on and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Some spoilers What I loved most about this book was as I kept reading, I really found Reign and Sophie was really made to be together.

Sophie has a small problem she was hit in the head when she was a child and lost some of her eye site and had to use a walker to get around. She is staying with her brother Stephen in London and goes to a dance, she meets Reign there. She knows the gossip about his late dead wife and doesn’t believe them, but her bother does. When Reign is found alone with her Stephen goes nuts and tells her never to see Reign again. Ya right, like that’s going to happen, as you know she does see Reign again and things goes well until, her so called brother gives Sophie away in a card game for marriage to another man. Well you’ll have to read to find out how Reign and his devilish ways comes to save the day for Sophie. Let me tell you she needs saving the way her bother treats her grrr! The book does drag a bit, but was well worth the read for me, so much so I will be reading the first and book three now.

    So... wow. This one was slightly better and slightly less-squicky than the first in the series, although there's still the problem of the one-dimensional heroes. There are seven of them, Reign, Sin, Frost, *insert ominous-sounding word as a name here*, and I can't tell any of them apart. The scenes when they're all together and bantering are a mess of who's who. Anyway, this was okay. Just barely, maybe okay... until the end.

This one was slightly better and slightly less-squicky than the first in the series, although there's still the problem of the one-dimensional heroes. There are seven of them, Reign, Sin, Frost, *insert ominous-sounding word as a name here*, and I can't tell any of them apart. The scenes when they're all together and bantering are a mess of who's who. Anyway, this was okay. Just barely, maybe okay... until the end. They get married quickly under duress, which is fine, and then there's this abrupt departure for the country estate. Then this dissolute rake suddenly finds himself needing to be out of the house for hours and hours at a time for "work", which is really just a vehicle to unfold the denouement of this story, which is so far-fetched and ridiculous that I nearly quit. (view spoiler)[Turns out that his mother, who he thought died when he was a child, was really alive this whole time (a madwoman locked in the attic a la Jane Eyre). Her husband got bored with her, locked her up and faked her death. Okay. The HUGE problem with this is that his FATHER has been dead since the hero was a teen and HE'S been head of the family. So somehow, someone has been paying these servants to take care of the mother and keep her locked up and nobody told him, the new head of the family? He never noticed he was paying for this? Exactly who was in charge of keeping up this ruse after the father died? (hide spoiler)] Anyway, blah blah blah, it takes pages and pages for this all to get revealed and for all the contrived drama to sort itself out and I quit caring well before the end.

While at a ballroom, she meets Reign, who treats her differently than others with her certain struggles. He treats her as a real human being, and shows her kindness and desire. But when they are involved in a scandal ,they marry, but Reign may be the key to saving Sophia from a horrible fate. Till Dawn With The Devil is a wildly entertaining read that sucked me into the story from the first page. Not many authors can pull me in like Alexandra Hawkins. This is a newer author for me, and when I read the first book in the series a few months ago, I fell in love with her writing. Her style is very compelling and endearing, and you can’t help but admire the sizzling chemistry she implements in her stories. In Till Dawn With The Devil, the second book of Lords Of Vice, we have Reign’s story. This story encompasses a variety of issues. In the beginning of the story, we see how strong our heroine is. She is beautiful and passionate, and stubborn, she is determined to make her own way and fight her battles. She isn’t afraid of what others think of her, especially Reign. Reign is addicted to Sophia, he can’t resist her, and for the first time since his first wife’s betrayal, he feels desire and can’t stay away from her. I loved how these two came together, and their story was sweet and romantic, and such a lovely story of true love and how one night of desire and passion can change your life forever. I found that Till Dawn With The Devil a stunning romance set in the regency period, a time of balls and parties, of scandal and formal parties, of a love found in a ballroom…a tale of intrigue and mystery, a romance that is sexy and smart….EXCEPTIONAL!!!

His father is also accused of killing Lord & Lady Ravenshaw over a lovers row before killing himself. The entire history & story of what really occurred is shrouded in mystery. And yet, one other soul was there that night. Six year old Lady Sophia Ravenshaw. She did not come out unscathed however. Someone knocked her out with the blunt of a pistol, leaving her half blind. She’s a fantastic character. To have been thru so much! We’re talking 1821 here folks. She has learned to live with her impairment. She relies on a walking stick as she can only focus on things close up. She’s learned to dance, has friends, and is an all around beautiful soul! Imagine that.....,she’s never thought herself a victim and embraced her life. All that and the author pairs them up for a sweet redemption love story. They were great with each other, loving and forgiving. Truly could of been written the complete other way. It wasn’t, it was kinda refreshing. I wasn’t expecting it at all. I will say, not all is meets the eye. Mystery of that night unfolds in regards to Raines first wife, the murders of their parents and it’s a bit suspenseful at the end. Alas...... Like the prior book. I was left unsatisfied on a major supporting character! Ugh. It’s a theme or something. What happened to Stephen? Sophia’s brother? Did he pay his debts? Why was he with Raine at the end? What was settled? Where was the apology he oh so very much owed his sister? So yeah......I’m wary to invest in the supporting characters with any interest because Ive now been left twice in 2 books wondering as to what happened to them. Grrrrrrr......

Eight years ago, his pregnant wife was found dead in her room, with a broken neck. Although most believe it to be a tragic accident, there are those that think Reign is guilty. Lady Sophia is tired of feeling like a burden to her two brothers Henry and Stephan. Her parents were murdered when she was six in an apparent murder-suicide and during the attack, she was struck in the head, and her eyesight has been very poor ever since. It is at a ball, that Sophia’s beauty catches Reign's attention. Normally not one to dally with the ladies, he asks her to dance which throws the shyer Sophia off guard. When getting some air, they realize the sad history they share – it was Reign’s father who murdered Sophia’s parents and then killed himself. Her brothers want her to have nothing to do with him, but soon, her brothers get in way over their heads in the gambling halls, and Reign may be her only saving grace. I was very disappointed with Til Dawn With the Devil. Right off the bat Reign and Sophia both realize that Reign’s father murdered Sophia’s parents and caused a punishing blow to her head and yet hardly anything comes of it. I understand Reign is an innocent party pertaining to his father’s actions, but that is a lot of baggage to deal with. The hurt and anger of losing her parents is still surrounding Sophia, but nothing is made of Reign’s family connections. No opportunity is taken to explore this very fragile history that has intertwined their lives. There are also nasty rumors swirling around Reign that he murdered his first wife and unborn child. Again, Sophia has 100% confidence he is an innocent. Sophia is about ready to be auctioned off by her brothers to cover their debt and Reign swoops in. Here is a man that she really doesn’t know all that well with a very sordid, mysterious past and she not only accepts his proposal with ease, but their marriage is smooth sailing too. With the emotional distress Sophia has overcome with her murdered parents and her own assault, coupled with Reign’s horrid marriage, the two of them got together too easily!! Where is the drama? The angst? The book ends with a very dramatic, action packed event, but overall, it lacked conflict, and it missed the mark in confronting the hero and heroine’s emotions that should have played a big role.

    Maybe I'm boring, but I like the plots my HR novels to be character-driven, and not pushed forward by some long-dead relative risen from the dead to strike terror in the main characters. Also, every time someone gets shot, I get nervous. Don't you know penicillin hasn't been invented yet, and you may die a horrible gangrenous death? Anyway, I found the sentence structure of this one a bit awkward, which lessened my enjoyment.

Not so in this case. I actually like this book better than the debut of the series, All Night with a Rogue. The characters are intriguing and I really like the storyline behind our hero and, thus, our heroine as it’s unveiled how they are unfortunately connected through tragedy. Reign is tired of being shunned and gossiped about since his wife’s death years before. Her parents have never believed their daughter accidentally died, that Reign had to have been involved, and they keep the gossip alive. So taking his life back during a ball, a blue-bowed dress catches his fancy. Finally spying the woman and her bows, he finds her in conversation with a nobleman he despises, getting rid of the man in short order to have the beauty to himself. Nearly losing her sight in an accident when she was very young, Sophia has grown up as normal as possible, considering her disability. Dancing is not one of her favorite things, and when the Earl of Rainecourt ushers her to the dance floor, their encounter goes awry from the beginning. Sophia leaves him behind with a sigh of relief, because of his high-handed behavior and because she knows who he is. What Reign doesn’t know is Sophia is the lone survivor of the horrible night her parents died at the hands of his father, who then ended his own life. Vowing to keep his distance at his realization, he discovers that’s easier said than done, Sophia is a woman a man just can’t forget. Unbeknownst to Sohpia, her brother has made marriage arrangements for her, not allowing her to choose her own husband, all to take care of his gambling debts. Refusing to be used in such a way, Sophia turns to Reign instead, the lesser of two evils for her at that point. But that changes very soon. Reign and Sophia are an intriguing pair. They come together despite their common past, an attraction between them neither can deny. Trust comes early, which is a breath of fresh air, because trust and love usually come very late for heroes and heroines in romance. Reign thinks he will never marry again, his first wife’s deceit and anger more than enough to entice him to remain single for so long. But Sophia sneaks into his heart before he realizes it; her intelligence and zest for life making him look at her much differently than any other man before. And she just inherently knows he never could have murdered his wife, feels his pain and frustration at how society has viewed him over the incident. Just when love is in the air, life deals them another blow, and Ms. Hawkins throws in a curve ball you don’t see coming. The intertwining of Reign’s and Sophia’s lives is much more complicated than anyone thought, and it’s a doozy when all is revealed. TDwtD is a terrific second book in this series. I had it read in a day and then bemoaned the fact it was over. And now waiting for After Dark with a Scoundrel, out sometime next year, is going to be torture.

    Loved it!! This is the second book of the Lords of Vice series, Reign's book and I thought it was fabulous! The Earl of Rainecourt, dubbed Reign by his fellow Lords of Vice, has had a dubious life. When he was a child, his mother died leaving him to grow up with a volatile and sometimes abusive father. But not only that, Reign had to live with the scandal of his father killing off two friends, the Northrams (Lord and Lady Ravenshaw) before killing himself. But life doesn't get better for Reign af Loved it!! This is the second book of the Lords of Vice series, Reign's book and I thought it was fabulous! The Earl of Rainecourt, dubbed Reign by his fellow Lords of Vice, has had a dubious life. When he was a child, his mother died leaving him to grow up with a volatile and sometimes abusive father. But not only that, Reign had to live with the scandal of his father killing off two friends, the Northrams (Lord and Lady Ravenshaw) before killing himself. But life doesn't get better for Reign after he marries, as his wife threatens to leave him and is found dead the next day. All signs indicated it was an accident but the members of the ton form their own opinion that Reign did away with his Countess. So Reign allows the perception of him to grow as his reputation as being a devil follows him and suits his needs. Fast forward 8 years and Reign attends a ball where he's instantly intrigued by Lady Sophia. Little does he know that she's the daughter of the Northrams, who was injured when his father supposedly hit her over the head the same night he slain her parents. Due to the injury, Sophia's sight was compromised and it caused her brothers to give her a sheltered life, raised in the country. But Sophia is determined to enjoy a season in London in spite of her limited vision. And after meeting, Reign is not only intrigued but determined to spend time with Sophia despite the objections of her brothers and certain members of society. When Sophia's oldest brother, Stephan, tries to force her into marriage to cover his increasing debts, Reign uses that excuse to claim her as his own bride. When Stephan tries to interfere and take Sophia back, Reign decides it would be safer to take Sophia back to his homestead Addison Park and away from London - but that soon poses it's own problems. Addison Park is where the infamous murder/suicide took place and where Sophia had been injured all those years ago. Some claim there was a ghost living there and what they found was not just a ghost but that of Reign's mother. Instead of being dead as was claimed since he was a child, his father had merely removed her mother to a secluded tenant farm and paid off servants to take care of her. She escaped and lived within the secret tunnels and passageways of Addison Park watching over her son. When she makes herself known by kidnapping Sophia, they all finally learn the awful truth. In her madness, she convinced Sophia's father that her husband had betrayed them all with Sophia's mother. When she concocted a plan for Sophia's father to confront her husband, she was the one that ended their lives and in fact, injured Sophia. After it was revealed there was a struggle and Lady Collette finally died a real death and Sophia was saved by Reign and her brother, Stephan. I was thoroughly entertained by all aspects of this book. Sophia was a strong, spirited woman despite her injuries while Reign was an absolute devil with a heart of gold. Their chemistry was undeniable and so entertaining. I'm going to love catching up with the rest of the Lords of Vice!

I would tend to agree but for the sheer fact that I can almost guarantee that once Till Dawn with the Devil is in your hands you will devour every sexy and intriguing morsel of this divine read. Then you'll come back and claim that you are as much in love with Gabriel Addison Housely, fifth Earl of Raincourt--Reign to his friends and Lady Sophia Northam's story as I am! I absolutely adore Sophia!! Alexandra Hawkins had me crying. This story is not only romantic but it touches your heart--in a way I was completely blown over by it. The fact that Sophia is partially blind but can see through Reign's defenses and has no time to pity him is what sold this story for me. Reign who was devastated by love when he was nineteen; professes he will never let love into his heart --but falls completely in love with Sophia the moment he meets her and fights it all the way. Sophia is strong, courageous and full of love that she is so willing to give. The truth is Reign wants her love desperately but is petrified of repeating the past. I for one am in love! Till Dawn with the Devil is a poignant love story gripping your heart at times with emotionally charged intervals seems to be Ms Hawkin's forte. Her flesh and blood characters make you root to the very end for them to have their Happily Ever After. Alexandra Hawkins' has done it once again and does the Regency era proudly like no other. Her second installment in her Lord of Vice series, “Till Dawn with the Devil" has every thing a romance aficionado needs. Intrigue, mystery , desire with overtones of a grand and fated passion that burns up the pages quicker than a reader can turn them. "Till Dawn with a Devil" is grounded in a full and lush plot twist that keeps her readers glued to their chair with breathless anticipation. Hawkins has a unique way of engaging her readers that always serves up with the WOW factor and proves time and again that she knows what her readers want, long for and desire most--True Love in the face adversity. Simply put--Till Dawn with the Devil is one of those 'can't put it down' reads. I have to say that regency historical romance author Alexandra Hawkins-R-O-C-K-S!! :)--and that is strictly my opinion!..:)

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Rainecourt, or Reign, is shunned by London society for two reasons. First, as a child, his father murdered Lord and Lady Northam and then killed himself and because he is suspected of killing his pregnant wife 8 years earlier. While at a ball, he encounters Sophia Northam, child of the couple his father killed and who was injured (she has vision problems) in the incident. They connect, but her brother catches them together and he finds out who she is. When her nasty brother sells her in marriage Rainecourt, or Reign, is shunned by London society for two reasons. First, as a child, his father murdered Lord and Lady Northam and then killed himself and because he is suspected of killing his pregnant wife 8 years earlier. While at a ball, he encounters Sophia Northam, child of the couple his father killed and who was injured (she has vision problems) in the incident. They connect, but her brother catches them together and he finds out who she is. When her nasty brother sells her in marriage to pay off his debts, Reign abducts Sophia and marries her. When it looks like her brother isn't accepting the marriage, Reign takes Sophia to his home in the country, where both of the "incidents" took place. There, Sophia feels like she's being watched and that the past is haunting her. In comparison to the first book, the characters in this one are SO much more likeable. Reign still has an edge to him that makes him feel dark, but he's not a complete asshole (like the previous hero Sin was). He also appears to have some morals. Sophia is pleasant, with an interesting vision problem, but I couldn't help but wonder exactly how bad her vision was. I wish it had been more clearly defined. Not blind, but not perfect vision either. The mystery was good too, I couldn't quite figure out who really killed his wife (view spoiler)[ and at times wondered if he hadn't actually done it himself, even accidentally (hide spoiler)] I'm also kind of torn on how this author doesn't do the long, detailed historical. This tends to be fairly short and sticking to the basic plot details without going into flowery language. In this book, I appreciated it.

    DNF just a few pages in. First of all, the silly names feel like they are trying way to hard to make the men seem “dangerous.” And since I don’t really find “dangerous” rakish men attractive, and they are over done in this genre, that was a detractor from the beginning. Reign, Vane, Frost, Sin (oh, come on!), etc etc bleh. Then, the writing felt rushed and amateurish to me. There was just no hook, no spark.

And then the “hero” noticed the heroine because of her “blue bows” across her shoulders and immediately becomes obsessed with her. Literally all we hear about for a few pages is the blue bows and so when he finds her he immediately rudely removes her from the presence of the man she is speaking with (insert unexplainable and unforgivable random obsession and jealousy here) and then alpha male forces her into dancing with him against her will. Ugh. So ridiculous. I prefer romances in the genre to have more focus on emotions, communication, connection, relationship and character building rather than “me Tarzan you Jane” alpha domination. No thank you.

There were some parts that were really enthralling, but there were mostly missed opportunities for setting up future plot points. For example, the “ghost” of the house could have been explored a lot more instead of just being dropped in when Sophia was tied to the chair. It felt more like a deus ex machina than something that could’ve risen organically from the plot.

It was also a bit hard to see that Reign actually wanted Sophia beyond bedding her by the time they married. There were many times where I thought I missed something of their relationship by having the time jumps, and other times where I thought the scenes were lasting too long. It was just difficult for me to see their relationship actually growing at a believable pace instead of spiking up about half way through the book.

    I liked Sophie for the most part as well as Reign. However, this book doesn’t have the passion of the first of the series. I just didn’t feel as connected to the characters of the story. Sophie’s vision impairment confused me. It’s like she couldn’t see, but then she could. So, it just kinda depended on if was convenient for her to see or not.

    If you like a huge helping of crazy-sauce with your romance, this is the book for you. A partially blind heroin, several murders, and so many other things are happening here. It was a little much at times.

    If you are new to this series, I suggest you skip the first one and read this one. It has a much less convoluted plot and the flow of the story line is not distracting like the first book. Lady Sophia is no shrinking violet and Lord Reign is a rapscallion with several redeeming qualities. It was entertaining to read of their courtship and mishaps.

    Ok, now that I have a bit of time I'm going to try and write a small review about this book. I'm rating this 2,95 stars. I have to say: this book was crazy!!! I enjoy senseless historical romances every once in a while. I've just said it... They're a bit absurd but they captivate my attention and make me giddy. And sometimes you just don't need to read the next Nobel/Pulitzer Prize novel, or something really deep and dramatic. Sometimes you just need a dose of humor, blushing virgins and rakes (t Ok, now that I have a bit of time I'm going to try and write a small review about this book. I'm rating this 2,95 stars.

And sometimes you just don't need to read the next Nobel/Pulitzer Prize novel, or something really deep and dramatic. Sometimes you just need a dose of humor, blushing virgins and rakes (that are only called like that because they like to have sex in a position other than missionary). Anyway, I enjoy senseless HR sometimes, however, Till Dawn with the Devil was a bit too senseless for me. We get the usual tropes: super handsome and ultra rich manwhore of a lord (Reign/Lord Rainecourt/Gabriel/wtvr his name is), meets incredible flawed beauty (Sophia-she's nearly blind after an injury, that's her "flaw"). There are gossips around that say he murdered his ex-wife, but still they fall in love because lust, duh!, get married and after, they captivate us with some delightful not-so-kinky sex, which for a rake, I think it's kind of underwhelming. Now, I admit I enjoyed like 60% of the book but then things took a turn for the worst. Instead of pure, undiluted romance the author tried to go the thriller way and it became a bit (lot) of a mess. I mean (view spoiler)[ at the beginning we are explained that Reign's bad reputation comes from his father murdering the Ravenclaws when he was a kid (I'm not sure that's their real last name, it sounds something like that, the Ravensomethings, for some reason my brain turned it into the Ravenclaws, and so, the Ravenclaws they are). The Ravenclaws were Sophia's parents, so clue in the "forbidden" romance (there isn't any forbidden romance, nobody REALLY cares about that fact). Reign's mom wasn't in the picture because, apparently, she had commited suicide a few years before. Now a lot of years go by. Reign's first wife dies, there's more gossip and more years go by. He meets Sophia, he marries her and then TAKES HER TO LIVE AT THE SAME PLACE WHERE HER PARENTS WERE MURDERED AND SHE WAS RENDERED NEARLY BLIND!!!- Yeah, seems fucking LEGIT!!! Who in their fucking right mind does that???. Obviously, Sophia is afraid of being alone in the house and feels jittery and watched all the time. Obviously, there's a reason for that too: it happens that Reign's mother wasn't really dead, and she had been living in the house in some sort of secret passages like some rat person. So she came out from her ratosphere to kidnap Sophia and kill her in some sort of psychiatric frenzy. She thought her son was her husband and he was saving him from all of the wicked women in the world. The thing is, the woman died at the final confrontation and nobody cared for the whole situation at the end, they continued living their lives like nothing ever happened. (hide spoiler)] So yeah, the trip to crazy town took the story down a notch, and left me wondering, who the hell raised Reign??? Did he raise himself? That's not really probable... And why (view spoiler)[nobody told him the truth about his mom when he inherited the state??? Who was his executor??? (hide spoiler)] Anyways, the book was ok. I liked the first part, the ending not so much but, if you like your romance mixed with some crazy zombie relatives and a bit of a D-rate thriller, this might be the book for you.

    Maybe I was expecting more. Geez, should I continue reading the series or not? I'm curious about Frost though but afraid that I'd be disappointed again. Maybe I was expecting more.
