Agree with Anniik. Much prefer Stephanie Laurens and my newly discovered Gaelen Foley. ( )

This book is one of the Boscastle Series, but I'm not sure which one. "The Sinful Nights of a Nobleman" is the story of Lord Devon Boscastle, a handsome rake, and Miss Jocelyn Lydbury. Jocelyn has a previous acquaintance with Devon, and still harbors some feelings from that past (which we are not told about in any detail - I'm assuming possibly it's in one of the other books?). They meet again at a rather risque party, and due to some devious planning by the villain, they end up compromised and forced to marry.

This is one of the most emotionless romance novels I've ever read. There is no chemistry between the hero and heroine, and the book is badly written so that everything feels kind of fakey and leading towards the sex scenes. The underlying plot device is cheesy, and you really never feel anything for either character.

Don't waste your time. ( )

Years ago, Devon Boscastle did a most ungentlemanly thing - he stood Miss Jocelyn Lydbury up. He simply forgot to show up at the dinner he was invited to, not that he was that interested in timid Jocelyn anyway being much happier as a young rake. But when they both arrive at the same notorious weekend-long party, he rethinks his opinion about Jocelyn.

She, however, still hurt that he would do such a thing is more than happy to spend time with her long-time admirer and prospective fiancée. In fact, thinking that he is ready to propose she agrees to a midnight meeting with a “secret admirer”. Unknowingly, Devon accepts his own invitation hoping to meet for a night of passion with a notorious widow and meets up with Jocelyn instead. You can imagine where things went from there.

But something more sinister is at work than just matchmaking, as someone tries to frame Devon for murder and puts Jocelyn in danger. The true nature of a rake is reveled, and we find a hero behind Devon’s roguish countenance. *sigh*

The fifth novel in the Boscastle family series (but can be read as a standalone), I enjoyed this fluffy historical romance, for its humor, its love scenes, and because I love always the rogues! I look forward to backtracking and reading about the rest of this interesting family.

Is this the one about the Boscastle and his old flame? No, that was Heath. Is this the one about being caught by the woman who is not good enough for you? No, that was Drake.

This is Devon, who ends up compromising Jocelyn, his old one-time about to be fiancee, who he thought wasn't worth his time to court.

The Boscastle series is starting to sound like the same-old, same-old. ( )

Award-winning author Jillian Hunter pens another deliciously sexy tale of passionate romance and beguiling trickery.

At a glamorous soiree in the romantic English countryside, Lord Devon Boscastle, one of the most elusive bachelors in London, is on the prowl for a willing and wicked lady to share a night of all-consuming sin. So he’s delighted to accept a mysterious invitation for a midnight rendezvous.

Miss Jocelyn Lydbury, a demure young debutante, has her heart set on a marriage proposal from a certain respectable gentleman. Invited to a secret tryst at the stroke of twelve, she hopes to finally meet her longtime admirer. To her dismay, it is the heartbreaking Devon who lies in wait for his midnight lady. Before the pair can unmask their deceiver, they are caught in a passionate, if unplanned, embrace and forced into marriage. Although Devon claims he won’t change his roguish ways for anyone, upon returning to London he is surprised to find that his once-timid bride has become an alluring temptress. But little does he know that Jocelyn has vowed to tame her handsome rake–in the ballroom and in the bedchamber.
