Critic reviews

"Stephanie Laurens brings a thorough command of Regency style, as well as graphic, uninhibited love scenes....Laurens is especially skillful at capturing Regency males, aristocrats whose refined restraint barely masks their powerful underlying urges." (Amazon.com review)

Great Listen

Read the first book in the series which was excellent. Listened to this, the second book, and it was great. Loved the narrator and all the different characters. The Bar Cynster comprises of a group of alpha male arrogant gentlemen who are related. These stories are about them and the ladies they meet in their life along with murders, thefts and mystery. This story had sexual tension, humour and an abundance of male testosterone. Enjoy.

Another great book, excellently narrated.

Where does A Rake's Vow rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love the Cynster books and this audio version is up with the rest of Stephanie Lauren's books read by Simon Prebble.

What about Simon Prebble’s performance did you like?

He is brilliant at voices, be it a young lady, a frostly old colonel, a servant or whatever. Simon Prebble can make you believe there has to be more than one person speaking for the characters.

Any additional comments?

Simon Prebble's narrations are definitely the most enjoyable. It's a shame he didn't narrate all of Stephanie Lauren's books.

Good romance

Great continuation of the Cynster series. Sexy & gracious men, a bit of mystery, and fun characters. Of course the narrorator did a great job, as with all Cynster novels. Worth a credit.

typical Laurens fair

A hot story of the Bar Cynster. Should be listened to after the 1)Promise in a Kiss 2)Devil's Bride, and the Secret Love. Simon Prebble gives a strong performance.
