Another great find from Stephanie Laurens

I have been reading "Cynster Novels" now for about 1 year. Although i have read 6 of the 11 books, I must say Vane is my new favorite character. Unlike the rest of the Cynster men, he is definatly less arrogant in his ways. The way he captures Patience's heart is by far the most romantic i have ever read "With my body, I thee worship. With my heart I thee adore. I love you. And if you want me to say it a thousand times, I will. Just as long as you'll be my wife" I got GOOSEBUMPS reading that. Bravo Stephanie Laurens!!! Another great read for Cynster lovers all over!!!! YOU MUST BUY THIS BOOK!!!!

A Rake's Vow

Just when you thought Stephanie Laurens couldn't get any better, she writes another stunning novel.Following Devil's Bride as the second book in the Bar Cynster series by Laurens, this book manages to top the first.Vane Cynster makes a mad run for it after his cousin Devil's wedding, as he refuses to be caught in the parson's mousetrap as well, but leave it to a thunderstorm to force him to take cover at his godmother's house, and introduce him to Miss Patience Debington. When Patience gets trapped in the intrigue surrounding a petty thief at the house party she's attending, things begin to look up for her and her brother Gerrard when Vane shows up and puts his investigating skills to good use.Though Patience hates the idea of getting tied to an "elegant gentleman" for life, she finds herself falling in love with the handsome cynster.Laurens continues to amaze with her talent for writing. Hopefully she'll continue to pull off these wonderful romance novels for many years to come.

I like Vane the most

I think it's pretty good, expecially Vane's character. He seems to be sensible than other Cynsters. I migth be wrong, just my impression. However, the mystery seems to be nothing and not so exciting. Well, that's the point, I suppose. This is a romance not a mystery.

Love those cysnter men

Vane is the second eldest in the 6 known as the Bar cynster. He runs into (quite literally) Patience Debbington and thus begins his downfall. He tries to escape the trap his cousin Devil did, but when fate has her mind set.....In this story Patience brother is suspect in a series of petty thefts. Vane comes to the youngster rescue while adding him in some growing up of his own. How honorable. He of course falls in love but is unwilling to admit it. I don't know why men just can't get it through their heads that a women wants to be loved. He wouldn't have to do so much convincing if he would just recognized what is there. Oh well, Patience doesn't seem to mind his tactics. In fact, he is pretty convincing. Enough to set your blood to boiling. There is a scene in the conservatory that will never leave you looking at a fountain the same way again. Her novel is fun to read. I enjoyed trying to figure out who the real theif was. The situations Patience and Vane got themselves into playing detective were amusing. Vane and Patience are one steamy couple. Definitely buy this novel. The cynsters are well worth reading about.

Another satisfyling Bar Cynster novel.

Even though this is the second book in the series, I read it last and found it just as satisfying as all the others. Nobody is doing Regency romances better today than Stephanie Laurens. The plot of this book focused almost exclusively on the relationship between the two leads. There was some sort of mystery plot surrounding the whole thing, but frankly I couldn't keep the cast of characters straight and didn't find it very interesting. Not that it mattered. The core relationship was more than enough to keep me entertained. Unlike some of Laurens novels, the heroine in this book is a very level-headed, smart young woman. As always, the Cynster lead was devastatingly sexy. If we can't clone them in real life, at least Laurens has given us the next best thing - Cynster after Cynster.
