Such a protracted courtship-slash-equivocation. And I do have respect for Laurens' writing, but this novel, for all its steamy-sexcapades, left a bitter aftertaste, as the premise is somehow an insult to any woman of reasonable intellect; as well as an affirmation for any misogynist.It wouldn’t have been so bad, really, if it posed as a suspense novel instead--one that just happened to have an awful lot of naked scenes.Amanda came off like a spoiled, coldly calculating, I’ll-have-it-all-laid [...]

3.5-4 starsWhile I really enjoyed this, I had to deduct some stars due to the inconsistent way the Cynster family behaved in this book. As close as they are, there's no way I can believe that NO ONE realized Amanda was going to the undesirable places she was going in search of a husband. There is also no way I'll ever believe that the Bar Cynster would accept Martin telling him about Amanda's actions and letting it be assumed they've slept together and they wouldn't be outraged, much less that t [...]

Well, time again for the monthly series read of this. I was really, really looking forward to this one (and still am the next one a little bit), but though it was off to a pretty good start, it took a turn downhill somewhere around the middle or so. It wasn't really a bad read in the end, just some stuff happened that was almost unbelievable. I did like the characters pretty well for the most part. I think Dexter was one of the best men yet in the series. I found him to be a good hero, and I don [...]

Truly, S. Laurens' style is not to my taste. I've sworn off her before but was tempted by this free audiobook. How could I hate a book with so much hot sex? Because there's almost nothing else for the first two-thirds -- I mean, no plot, virtually no other characters, no nothing except Simon Prebble sounding like a dirty old man as he gets more and more excited. Could that be because he's over 70 and just doesn't have the right voice for a story like this? (And don't accuse me of ageism; he's no [...]

One a Wild Night3 StarsAfter months of failing to find a suitable husband from amongst the ranks of willing candidates, Amanda Cynster and her twin, Amelia are at their wits end. Deciding to broaden the field, Amanda enters the more unsavory environs of the ton to seek her mate, only to discover that she is in over her head. When things take a dangerous turn, Amanda is rescued by the enigmatic and secretive Earl of Dexter who, unfortunately, is not inclined to marry. Will Amanda be able to chang [...]

The story of Amanda Cynster, one of the twin cousins of the Bar Cynster, who is determined to find the right man for herself this season.Having met no men that caught her eye during her last few seasons in the ton, she decides to look for her prospective mate outside of it. To that end, she attends a number of establishments young ladies don't usually frequent, and finds herself talked into a card game bet with a fascinating partner.Martin, the Earl of Dexter, has a scandal attached to his name [...]

I think I will classify Ms. Lauren's writing under a new genre, 20th century Regency, although even in the 20th century Miss Amanda Cynster's behavior would be considered fast. In the early 19th century it would have been considered not only fast but loose. Nevertheless the plot is better than most of her books and I enjoyed reading it. Martin, Earl of Dexter, is a bit more believable as a male hero. He does try to deal with Amanda in an honorable way as defined by the early 19th century, but of [...]

A really enoyable novel ! I loved the heroine ! I know she seems spoilt and bit too bossy but she was a woman on a mission: to get the man she loved admit that he loved her too before she would agree to marry him. I applauded that. This girl had a lot of balls ! She took a huge gamble when she kept refusing to accept the H's marriage proposal because he never said the much required "I love you". I admired her determination to have a passion filled marriage with a spouse who was truly deserving o [...]

Amanda Cynster sets out to find a man who is like the Cynster males. Yes after rebelling all these years against the brothers/cousins who were ferocious in protecting her and her twin Ameila and all the Cynster females, Amanda and Amelia recognize they want a man who will value them and family above all else. She goes outside the ton to find someone because after 5 seasons she knows who is around and no one is her hero. At a gaming hell she sees Dexter- a hero who helps her when challenged to a [...]

3 starsAmanda was bratty. I gave her the benefit of the doubt but I couldn't look past her erratic and juvenile behavior. There's a big difference between a strong woman showing the world she won't be held back by her gender and just acting like an idiot. There was even a brilliant speech delivered by Luc basically saying what we were all thinking. "Who the fuck do you think you are, Amanda?" and she scoffed and walked away. So, the author wanted knew how she was coming across and still went wit [...]

I always enjoy Stephanie Laurens books and this one is quite good. Amanda is bored of the gentlemen she finds in the ballrooms and decides to look for her future husband in the places less obvious. On her first night in a game house she meets Martin who she finds a perfect candidate for her spouse. He becomes her parter in her unorthodox activities, though not a willing one. Still, he is definitely fascinated by Amanda but his past is an obstacle that can not be overcome easily. I know that some [...]

Although I guessed the mystery, this was a fun Cynster book. The main characters are likable and it has some nice steamy scenes.

The last 200 pages nearly dragged this up to a four star. The start was too slow though. Romance is fine but it needed a bit more danger earlier to liven things up.

I wrote a general review below that covers all the Stephanie Laurens books I’ve read thus far. To add to that, this book, On a Wild Night, is not only my favorite of her books, but it’s one of my Top 5 Picks of all time. I’ve read this book at least three times and refer back to it on occasion for some of my favorite parts. It’s my go-to for the “perfect” romance story with hot sex scenes and a satisfying ending.~Story and Writing StyleI love, love, love Stephanie Laurens. She is one [...]

There was a mystery in this book, but it only really started near the end and was finished so quick, and so obviously, that there was no real point to it. Which means this was 518 pages of pure romance.I have liked the twins in every book they have appeared in, and this book gave them a chance to be individuals. Or at least for Amanda to be an individual. Amelia's romance is introduced in a small way, setting us up for the next book.There were moments of hilarity, mainly due to Percival Lytton-S [...]

This is Amanda Cynster's story. The twins have decided they are never going to find the husband they want in the ballrooms of London. They each come up with a plan to find their mates and set out to make sure they get what they want. Amanda's plan is to go to the less desirable places within society. She meets Martin Fulbridge and decides that this is the man who will be her future husband.Amanda is a clever girl and intelligent enough to know that she has to be careful to not let Martin know wh [...]

I'd rate this a 4.5ON A WILD NIGHT is the eighth novel in the Cynsters series. It is the story of Amanda Cynster who along with her twin sister has been looking for a man as wonderful as the Cynster men. For six years, they have been unsuccessful. Now they have decided to change their tactics. Amanda goes into the more unsavory social circles. There she meets Martin Fulbridge, the Earl of Dexter. Martin was accused of murder ten years before and was banished by his family. Having attained the ti [...]

I really enjoyed everything about this book except for one thing, which I shall get into later. First, the positive.The Cynster family. As always, my favorite thing about this extended series is the family interactions. I particularly enjoy Lady Osbaldstone (who reminds me of Julia Quinn's Lady Danbury, even down to the cane), and this book featured Lady O to a great degree. I liked Martin very much for the same reasons that Amanda did; basically, he's cut from the same cloth as the Bar Cynster. [...]

This is apparently part of a series about the Cynster family. Regency England, natch. I thought it was tremendously silly, and not necessarily in a good way. Maybe outrageous is a better adjective. It’s one of those books where the heroine does things that are just slightly risqué by modern standards, but by period standards, they would basically turn her into an outcast from society. Naturally, the only consequence she suffers is being married to the man she loves, which is really what she w [...]

I'm always one to save the best for last, but in this case, not literally. I finally read the highly recommended Cynster book by my friend, her favorite with On A Wicked Dawn. After constantly putting off reading this due to other books in my shelf, it really was worth the wait, and I had fun from the first until the last page. Suffice it to say, I loved it.With the Bar Cynster books, the author always injects mystery and some sort of investigation alongside the hero as pursuer theme. Since this [...]

I didn't enjoy this book any better that its successor. They mostly had the same them. The overly sought after Heroine and the near perfect Hero.And then the sexat was like 25% of the book.I did like Luc a bit in the story. I guess because it wasn't his story, he seemed more grounded.Martin, I disliked. The fact he knowingly allowed himself to be manipulated made the story dull. He knew what Amanda was doing and he just let it happen. No counter attempt or anything.And I believe this story shoul [...]

This was not my favorite of the Cynster novels. After getting to know younger Amanda and Amelia in the earlier books, like Hyacinth in Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series, you knew that the twins were bound to be headstrong to go toe-to-toe with the dominating members of their family that came before them.But how Amanda is presented isn't that sympathetic. The way she pursues Martin is eerily parallel to the suitor pursuing Amanda in the story itself. But while the guy was set in his place, it's app [...]

I have been looking forward to the twin's stories for so long! We start off with Amanda Cynster, conspiring with her sister that it is time they found their perfect mates and married. But woe, the men of the ton are boring and ill suited! Which leaves us to question, what is a Cynster to do?!Why, travel around the less respectable parts of town! And it is here that our budding romance begins as Amanda Cynster finds herself in a more dire situation when it comes to cards, our handsome Martin appe [...]

This was my first Stephanie Laurens book, and it will be my last. I read about 200 pages and NOTHING happened beyond a really dull 'romance' between the hero and heroine. I actually stopped reading it after about 200 pages, because I didn't want to waste my time on it anymore.The heroine seemed like a spoiled teenager. I never had any sympathy for her. And I didn't understand her compulsion to target the hero as her future husband.The hero was likeable enough, but there was a mystery in his past [...]

This book lacks the Cysnter thrill. And for the most part of the book, it's all about the wooing and romance and "playing the game". The mystery comes later towards last 1/4 of the book. And it's predictable! I can't even fathom how Amanda could've forgotten her early observation that between Luc and Edward, Edward looks more like Martin. Sheez.Anyway, I'm biased. I'm in love with Dexter! Although Luc is prettym. I have a feeling their book (Melly and Luc's) will be better. I love how Cynster-li [...]

This is a fabulous read. Amanda lives up to her Cynster name, searching for passion and adventure. Martin on the other hand is the rogue with the heart of gold. They are fabulous together and his attempt to remove her from the path of ruin is beautifully narrated. On the way they fall in love and their passion is red hot.Re-read 02/06/2015.One of the most irritating books I've read in a long time. Amanda is so sure of herself. She's like some child wilfully determined to get her own way. Martin [...]

It is the finer details of Laurens novels which really make the stories for me. The characters are always complex but believable, while the plots themselves are wonderfully written and well-developed. More importantly Laurens captures the air of the Regency period without boring the reader with long verses in social stucture or politics, nor are her novels bogged down with the language of the time.This installment was a bit flatter than others for me. Usually there are two plots, a criminal plot [...]

Review - I felt that Amanda and Dexter fell in love too quickly; he asked her to marry him and then about 3/4 of the book was just him asking her over and over to marry him, and her refusing. I think what would have made this book better was more on the scandal which had almost ruined Dexter, and this affected their relationship. However, I did find the characters very likeable - Dexter was tormented, and after reading about Amanda and Amelia in the previous Cynster books, I was intrigued to fin [...]
