Reviews about On a Wicked Dawn (Bar Cynster) (7):
By now all readers of the Cynster series are familiar with the basic plot, and its really worn thin in this latest one. First, the characters have never been true early 19th century types, and Amelia, like her sister Amanda, is more of a 20th century go getter, which leaves nothing to the imagination. Romance has to have some anticipation, and this has none, zero, nada. Once again, the main characters can't admit their love for one another believing it will give the other power over them. And you get tired of reading of will they, won't they, when will they, while all the time they're leaping into each other's arms. And of course the male characters in this series are virtually the same except for their so called interests, in this one its breeding hunting dogs. Lastly, the so called mystery that needs to be solved once again, that will bring in select characters from previous books in the series is so, so weak. You know who the so-called mysterious thief is from the start. And could one believe that a neighbor will come to a party at Luc and Amelia's house and leave the party without even remembering he left his daughter behind? And there is no explanation whatsoever of how one of Luc's sisters wanders off to confront the bad guy on her own. I'm afraid Ms. Laurens has gotten very lazy in her success.
On a Wicked Dawn (Cynster Novels) is one of my favorite historical romances by Stephanie Laurens. Her books are great stories with plenty of sweet romance and sex. The Cynster Novels are about six male cousins and their family. This story is about a lovely, headstrong female cousin looking for love. Sometimes a young lady needs to take matters into her own hands. Meet Amelia Cynster and Luc Ashford, 6th Viscount Calverton on their quest for love and marriage.
I already had in Paperback and decided to get in Kindle also for more reading convenience.
I seriously cannot rave enough about STEPHANIE LAURENS books.
The first one is as good as the second,third, fourth as many as she has written ....LOL :)
Any of her book's or series is just as interesting as the first one you begin reading .
Awesome, excellent reading... I would recommend any and all STEPHANIE LAURENS Books.
Once you read just one of her books :) you just wont want to ever stop ,
Again this author offers the reader an in depth look into the lives and adventures of this family, Although rich they still hold family values close to their hearts. This on going family plots and succeeds in unthought of ways to keep love and loyalty at the fore front of their adventures.
I like historical romance novels. However the physical details of romance I Skipped over . To me those details are not relevant to the story.
I was, to say the very least, disappointed with this...book.
Fans of the Cynster ducal dynasty will recall the irrepressible blond, blue-eyed twins, Amanda and Amelia. After years of searching the ton for mates, the two take matters into their own hands.
A week after seeing her sister off on her honeymoon, Amelia sets out to ensnare her chosen mate, Lucien Ashford. Although their families have been friends since their childhoods, Amelia is the only Cynster that knows that since the death of Luc's father eight years before, the Ashfords have been been desperately preventing the ton from seeing behind the illusion of their wealth. After years of hard work, Lucien's investments pay off. When he returns home, inebriated by his success, and liquor, Amelia is waiting for him. She has found out the family is poor, and offers herself, and her dowry, in return for his hand in marriage. Just before he passes out at her feet, he agrees. The problem that the couple must overcome is that Lucien refuses to tell Amelia he is rich because he is afraid that she will find out the true reason he wants to marry her: he loves her.
The weaknesses of this particular episode of the Cynster saga are numerous, especially as it's the follow up to Amanda's story, which was magnificent.
First of all, the "problem" that was suposed to drive the whole plot forward is unbelievable; Lucien doesn't have any emotional scars or weaknesses or past experiences that really convince the reader that his motivation for lying is justified. The sub plot involving Edward, who readers will remember from Amanda's story, is grossly underdeveloped.
The main characters aren't endearing, inspiring or other wise emotionally compelling-they're just there. The heroine, Amelia, is a non-entity: if she wasn't in the novel you probably wouldn't even notice. Lucien's younger sisters, Portia and Penelope, are better developed. Even Galahad, the dog Luc gives Amelia, is a more developed character than the heroine and hero.
Without the plot or characterizations to drive them, the three thousand, long repetitive sex scenes Laurens has included are a waste of readers' time. I think they take up about one third to a half of the book- you'll get done faster if you skip them. Here's some advice: for those who might read this book as a stand alone, and aren't interested in the whole series- don't bother. For those, who, like me, are loyal fans of the series, there are a few saving graces to the book. There's a cute scene where Devil interacts with his young daughter, and several scenes where we hear more from Helena, the Dowager Duchess, and she doesn't even speak in that dumb French accent she's had in other books. There is sort of tear jerking scene where, Honoria, Devil's wife, recalls first meeting Amelia and Amanda at Tolly's funeral. But best of all, the best moment in this book, is where, after seven years of marriage, and three kids, Devil, Fifth Duke of St. Ives, finally tells his wife he loves her.
Anyhow, Portia seems promising, and as always, I eagerly await the next installment in the series- I haven't given up on the Cynsters yet!
Love them all. Especially this one
