Sunrise with a Notorious Lord

Sunrise with a Notorious LordChristopher Courtland, Earl of Vanewright, or known as Vane does not want to be married by anyone who his mother wants. Vane will be curious about the one woman, Isabel, who seems to be able to resist him.

Miss Isabel Thorne was in London to give her sister a season. She will be torn to help her sister find a husband as the man their patron wanted for Delia was the man Isabel wanted.

Sunrise with a Notorious Lord is the fourth book to Lords of Vice by Alexandra Hawkins. I had picked up Hawkins book on a whim and found it pretty good. I wasn’t blown away in the beginning but started to like it more as the story went on and you found out more with these characters.

Vane is a man who wants to do his own thing and doesn’t like his mother interfering which I thought was amusing at times. I liked that the rake in him was starting to reform as the idea of Isabel at his side did not have him running away. Isabel’s mission was to take care of her family. I liked that she finally got something of herself. Though they are a long way from a happy ending as there are secrets Isabel has and will sabotage the budding relationship. I am happy to say that the sabotage doesn’t interfere too much with the happy ending. I thought the sabotage was done well and felt bad for Vane and Isabel but because of that they were able to get to know each other.

I felt there was more to this story that I was missing. It wasn’t anything that disrupted from the books story, it was more like the background of Vane and his friends. I wanted to know more about how this group came together and more about his friends.

I have no love loss for Delia, Isabel’s sister. First the girl is too immature and was caught more than once kissing Isabel’s almost betrothed and seems to be kissing another that Isabel truly wants. From all of that I was inclined to dislike her but then in the story she seems to be okay and a decent person. I guess her character confused me, but I would say overall I wasn’t a fan of Delia.

Thanks to the intrigue of these friends who formed the group of Lords of Vice I will be looking out for the beginning books of Alexandra Hawkins series.

  1. Hawkins is a new author to me. I just read a novella she had in a Christmas Anthology and I was impressed with her writing. I want to read more of her books and I’m glad you mentioned to start at the beginning of this series. thanks.

    • No problem Dot. Her writing is really well done and overall the book was good. I think sometimes starting at the beginning of the series is just necessary to truly understand the characters.
