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 titillating 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 rake can be sufficiently tamed into the ways of marriage.Read Less

This was a good book. Anyone who likes Stephanie Laurens' Cynster novels will like this book. But I didn't think the hero/heroine were as likable as in some of the other Cynster novels, which is why I only gave it 4 stars.
The only real complaint I have about the Cynster series is that I wish they were clearly labelled as to where in the series they belong. You can read them out of order, which I have done, but I think I would have enjoyed them a lot more if I had read them in order.

"On A Wild Night" by Stephanie Laurens is the wildest yet among all the other Cynster novels she has written so far. Being utterly bored and not finding anyone up to her liking in the ballrooms and parties among the ton, Amanda Cynster decides to go to the underworld in search of the one destined for her. However, soon she falls in trouble in the underworld, that is when Martin comes to her rescue-but that is just the beginning. As soon as Amanda sees Martin,she is convinced he is the one for her, and she does all kinds of wild and reckless things to make him hers.Sparks flow and passionate love scenes follow-as happens in all of Laurens' books. Martin resists strongly as he has a secret and knows that ladies like Amanda are not for him, but even he has to admit defeat when faced with such a determined girl as she. But then later Amanda is not sure whether he loves her, and he is totally unprepared to admit to giving his heart, so the battle of wills continue. And the sub-plot about Martin's secret was also well written. The side characters are remarkable. Finally, we are given a hint in the end that next in line are Amelia,Amanda's twin sister, and Luc. Wonder how wicked Amelia is going to be to convince Luc in "On A Wicked Dawn"?No less than her twin,I dare say!
