Review: All Night with a Rogue by Alexandra Hawkins
It's been a long time since I stumbled across a book I just couldn't finish. Sadly, this is one of those. I don't think I've read another romance with as many unappealing characters as inhabit this one. I'm a bit of a traditionalist with my historical romance, though, and this one just had a crass, modern feel to it. It was ugly in every sense of the word. Debauchery in excess--with cruelty mixed in. No thank you.
That's not to say the writing is necessarily bad, but for those, like me, who like to at least be able to *some* hint of humanity in their heroes--and some hint of brains in their heroines--this one failed with me. I put it down permanently on page 84.
