Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Stephanie Laurens is praised for her sultry Bar Cynster series of romances, including A Secret Love and All About Love. On a Wild Night may be the most sensual and completely uninhibited Cynster book yet.

It's 1825 in London, and the two curvaceous and blonde 23-year-old Cynster twins, Amanda and Ameliaare, are desperate to get married. All they need are two fine, strapping gentlemen - preferably with large purses.

So what do these two lusty young ladies do? They make a visit to the local gaming halls, of course! But when Amanda unexpectedly bumps into the notorious Martin Fulbridge, the fifth Earl of Dexter, a chain of events is set into motion that will leave one sister ravished - and the other ravenous for all the juicy details.

Mature listeners will delight in Amanda and Amelia's scandalous adventures around London.

excellent

I was surprised to find how much I enjoyed this one, as I'd never really given Stephanie Laurens a chance. The battle of wills between the two main characters kept me interested, and the scene at the beginning where they meet each other for the first time was one of the best I'd ever read. Simon Prebbles is also probably the best narrator I've ever heard.

This is wild!

This book is one of my favorites. I love it when the heroine knows her mind. Simon Prebble is probably my favorite narrator....he has taught me so much about the english language. Beautifully done.

Steamy Historical Romance!

WOW! This is what a historical romance should be! I'm know questioning why I haven't gotten the entire series! I could fill the entire review with exclamation points for how I felt about this book. I have listened to or read a few books in this series and have yet to be disappointed. Simmon Prebble's voice is perfect for this kind of dominant male character and he does a fabulous time with the female characters as well. The story is filled with steamy scenes and yet the story moves right along with it. Not too predictable, Yes I knew she'd get her man in the end but it was the journey that was so entertaining. Wish knew a man's mind as well as she does! I highly recommend this one!

Disappointing to say the least!

Normally I love her books, but I could hardly get through this one. 80% of the book was filled with long drawn out descriptions of love scenes. I found myself fast forwarding through these as they were just too over the top dramatic in nature and very repetitive. The story itself could have been told in just a few hours and lacked a real plot or interest until the last hour or so of the book.

Seduce, Deny, Repeat

I enjoyed the beginning of this book but by the eigth hour of the battle of wills between hero and heroine, I lost all interest and couldn't make myself listen to the end. It's wicked to puff a story up to twice it's size.

disappointing

Having now listened to all the Cynster novels up until this one, I found this story boring. The beginning and the end were interesting, the rest was very repetitive. 'Marry me, no, marry me, no, marry me, maybe', on and on this story line goes. Could have developed the characters so much more, and thus made the story line more interesting. As another reviewer wrote, I also get tired of the same phrases used over and over in these books, How many times do they 'hmph'? I do love historical romance, and I enjoy most of this author's books. Also enjoy the sex scenes, but those are over done also. So, glad I got this on sale and didn't use a whole credit. Not sure if I want to listen to the next one or not. As usual, the narrator does a fabulous job. He is one of my favorites for this genre.

Go to any Length.....

To what length are you will go to in order to find the perfect husband or wife for yourself? Amanda Cynster is 23 years old and tired of waiting. Amanda and Amelia (twin sister) hash up plans to snare, if you will, that perfect someone. Amanda decides to skirt the lines of propriety and frequent establishments, no lady of good breeding should frequent. With the unwilling aide of her childhood friend Reggie, who escorts her to the gaming hall, there Amanda gets into trouble and is in need of a hero a knight in shining armor. Decker is the only one willing to come to the rescue, all the other men in the gaming hall wanted to have a taste of Amanda viewing her as a sweet morsel. By the end of the first night/morning in the gaming hall, Amanda knew Martin Fulbridge Earl of Decker was just the man for her; she even dubbed him her lion. Martin on the hand thought he would never lay eyes upon Amanda ever again after that night in the gaming hall but he didn't know he had a Cynster determined to have him. As we know, what a Cynster wants a Cynster gets...and Amanda is no exception even though she is a female...
My take away...If you are tired of waiting for your dream man or woman to come and find you, by all means, go out and find him or her. After all, that person just might think they don't deserve true happiness.

Loved it

This book and "On a Wicked Dawn" are two of my favorites from the Cynster series by Stephanie Laurens. This is not your typical "A rake takes a simpering virgin to bed" type romance. Amanda is a mature woman with good brains in her head and Martin's character is sexy but believable.

Passionate and touching

Taking the time to comment on this audiobook because it was a truly full story from beginning to end. To me it was a little more touching than simply gratuitous. The passion was exquisite. Thoroughly enjoyed the listen!

Great Light Read

Strong Male and Female characters. Great easy listening story. I had gone away from the Cynsters to follow another branch of the family but found them so very slow and boring so now back to the Cynster family and this book has redeemed the author and her story telling. Have purchased the next book in this story.

He didn't stand a chance.

The twins are looking for suitable husbands. They know the type they want, similar to their cousins. How to find them, was something that had to be planned. Amanda decided that the Ball rooms didn't have what she was looking for. So asking her childhood friend Reggie she went to less suitable places, looking for the One. She found him, now how to snare him. Really delightful story, especially as I had this one in Audio.
