Originally published in 1998 as part of the Cynster series, but since it is set some time after the cousins served at Waterloo, and only one of them is titled, but all are filthy rich, it makes no difference.
The Cynster men are all accomplished skirt chasers, elegant, well mannered, and well dressed, and are known by their nicknames rather than their given names.
This one runs away after Devil's wedding, but winds up at the home of a favorite relative. There he meets the antagonistic woman who will become his undoing. She has an artistic younger brother, and they and the other houseguests become embroiled in a suspenseful hunt for a reckless thief. And the plot thickens.
Don't think too hard about it all, just enjoy.
Attorney - love to listen to audio books
I enjoyed the first book in the series, but I found this one boring. I just did not get attached to the characters and I thought the story too contrived. I stopped after the first four chapters and then went to the last chapter to wrap it up. No big deal. However, the reader is excellent. I have always enjoyed his performances.
I love Stephanie Lauren's books and had previously read this a couple of times but did not enjoy the narrator at all.
This one could had been more of intrigue and still have just enough sex that it could make you flush! Simon Prebble voice is very sexy and I love his voice in all the Cynester novels that he read, even if the story was not as good he can make it sound good, if you like Stephanie you will like this.
Simon Prebble is such a great narrator that I really loose the male/female voice differences. His Voices for his characterizations are so consistent that you know how he has patterned all the characters in his brain. Just a joy to listen to.
While I was miffed that it took so long for Patience to get over her "elegant gentleman" misconception, in the end I loved her championship and protective stance of those she loved.
I know Scandal's story is next, but Demon has stated a challenge and I can't wait to listen to the series.
Simon Prebble brings Stephanie Laurens stories to life. Love the Cynsters, Laurens and Prebble is now at the top of my Gotta Have Narrators.
English read by an Englishman
same as above. He's awesome
Of course none of the males of the Bar Cynster are alike and why should they be? In this story, the listener is treated to a clear characterization of Vane Cynster, Devil Cynster's second in command. This story takes you on a wonderful journey wrapped in a hint of mystery, passion, and love. Vane is a typical Cynster male, while his female counterpart, Miss Patience Debbington shows you don't have be born a Cynster to make others bend to your will.
