Reader Review: In “On A Wicked Night”, the 8th book of the Cynster Series, we meet Amanda Cynster, cousin of the Bar Cynster males. After six years on the marriage mart, Amanda and her twin, Amelia, despairing of ever finding the right mate, have decided to broaden their search. Determined to take matters into her own hands, Amanda decides to go where no respectable lady ever should, a notorious gaming hell. But excitement quickly becomes panic when, during an ill-advised card game, Amanda finds she's out of her league . She is unexpectedly rescued by Martin Fulbridge, 5th earl of Dexter. Banished from England by his father for a murder he didn't commit, Martin eschews London's elite circles. After living abroad for the past 10 years, he has delayed re-entering society, preferring instead a more interesting existence on its fringes. Still, he finds himself playing the part of Amanda's protector as she flits from one disreputable venue to another in a quest for adventure. Inevitably, Amanda is "compromised," but she's unwilling to settle for anything less than a marriage based on love. We get reacquainted with many of the rest of the Cynsters, and so continues the wonderful Cynster Series. I love this book and the rest of the series.
E-book extra: From the Lab to the Regency: One Writer's Travels (Part One): An Interview with Stephanie Laurens.
Where are all the exciting men in London?
After spending years in the glittering ballrooms of the ton, Amanda Cynster is utterly bored by the current crop of colorless suitors. Determined to take matters into her own hands, one night she shockingly goes where no respectable lady ever should, but where many an intriguing gentleman might be found.
But forbidden excitement quickly turns to panic when Amanda discovers she's quite out of her depth. She looks around for help -- and is unexpectedly rescued by the Earl of Dexter. Lean, sensuous, and mysterious, he has delayed re-entering society, preferring instead a more interesting existence on its fringes.
He's the epitome of the boldly passionate gentleman Amanda has been searching for, but although his very touch makes it clear he's willing to educate her in the art of love, Amanda has to wonder if such a masterful, lionized rake can be sufficiently tamed into the ways of marriage.

On a Wild Night
The words reached her on a whisper; no cynicism came with them—he seemed as appreciative as she.
She drew in a breath—the air was cooler, sweeter than any she'd ever tasted. "It's . . . strange." She glanced at him. "Come—let's walk a little way."
His brows rose but he stood, stepped past her and jumped down. He gave her his hands, helped her down the steps, then, enclosing one of her hands in a firm grasp, he surveyed the silvered sward. "Which way?"
"There." She pointed across the expanse before them to a pinetum.
Dexter called a command to the groom, then, her hand still locked in his, they set out.
It had been years since she'd walked hand-in-hand. She found it unexpectedly enjoyable, leaving her freer than if she'd taken his arm. Yet when her boot slipped in a dip, he pulled her up, steadied her easily. She laughed and smiled her thanks, resettled the luxurious wrap,, then let him take her hand and they walked on.
Behind them, the carriage drive dwindled. The sense of being alone, the sole living beings in the quiet landscape, grew with every step. The consciousness of being -isolated, one male, one female, burgeoned; there was no other living creature to distract or deflect their senses.
The magic that hung in the moonlit air was a drug. Amanda felt giddy by the time they were nearing the pines. She was aware Dexter was watching her; his thoughts were impossible to guess.
How did he see her? As an obligation, a young lady he felt honor-bound to protect? Or as a lady with whom he was happy to be walking handfasted through the moonlight?
She didn't know which, but she was determined to find out...

One of my favorite Cynster novels
August 29, 2009
Reviewer: A reader from CA US
Amanda's story is refreshing and exciting. She's intent on living on the wild side, and slowly draws Martin out of hiding with the force of their growing love. This is not the first time Laurens has used a "bad egg" in the family as her antagonist, but requiring Martin to clear his name was a new and exciting angle. Plus, the hot, potent love scenes will curl your toes!

I love Stephanie Laurens, and this book only shows why. Amanda Cynster is the female version of his cousins, but she met the only man that could tame her. Be sure not to missed On a wicked dawn, the story of her twin Amelia, also a superb novel, these are two of my favorites.

I have to say that I think Stephanie Laurens wrote much better books for the female Cynsters than the male. Amanda and Martin's love story is so passionate it will set you on fire. Both characters are just so lovable.

Reviewer: A reader from New Liskeard, Ontario CA
Okay, so the novel isn't exactly riveting. It follows the basic outline of all of Laurens novels. The characters are engaging and the best part of their courtship dance is the initial part. I did have a sort of confused reaction to a character at the end of the book. I would have imagined more emotion from him but due to the risk of spoiling the book for other readers I can't go into details of it. Still, some reactions of characters seem very aloof when they really shouldn't be.
