Never let it be said that a Cynster male can't face up to the one unassailable truth: A successful marriage gives life its fullest meaning. To all of English society, Simon Frederick Cynster has a perfect life--one of enormous wealth and impeccable social status. His lean handsomeness turns the heads of naïve debutantes, while his sensual allure ensures he never lacks for more sophisticated partners for a night, or more, of pleasure. Yet despite all of this, Simon knows that there is something--or rather someone--missing in his life. To achieve true contentment, Simon must find a lady accomplished enough to be his wife, someone who will spend her days as a member of one of England's most influential families ... and her nights pursuing duties of a more private--and personal--nature. But Simon knows what to expect if he reveals his intention to choose a bride; nothing could be more tiresome than having every blushing miss on the marriage mart thrust upon him. So he discreetly begins his search at a house party at Glossup Hall . . . and is astonished that the lady who immediately captures his interest is Portia Ashford. Simon has never considered Portia as a potential wife. He's known the raven-haired beauty since childhood; she's willfully independent and has always claimed to be uninterested in marriage. But an unexpectedly heated kiss abruptly alters the rules of their decade-long interaction. Soon they begin to long for the moments they can spend in each other's arms. But all is not as it seems at Glossup Hall. As Simon and Portia begin to explore the depths of their mutual passion, a shocking murder is committed ... and it appears that the next victim will be Portia herself. And even more shocking than the fact that a murderer secretly walks among them is the realization that all of Simon's considerable strength and influence may not be enough to protect Portia--his once and always perfect lover . . .… (mer)

I heard so many good things about the Cynsters that I was happy to find this book. But what a disappointment.
I know this is part of a series, but if you have not read the other parts, you might be frightened away by all the people that are introduced in the first 10-20 pages - I had the feeling more people were introduced here than in War & Peace.
The whole story takes place in a 'weekend' but there a more days in this weekend than there usually are in a week.
All characters, including Simon and Portia, are cardboard - no depth to them at all. Portia is getting sex lessons from Simon and luckily she didn't get any homework assignments, otherwise nothing would have happened in the rest of the book either, now it was filled with a - very vague - murder mystery.

Simon Frederick Cynster is determined to find a wife and everyone knows this so he's hunted by marriage eligible women, mostly young girls, but he wants something more. When he goes to Glossup Hall to visit a friend who is having a house party he's hoping he finds something more, he doesn't expect Portia Ashford who is someone he's known since he was young, a person he didn't consider, she always seemed distant and aloof, but now she's attractive and interesting and he's finding himself wanting more from her.

The romance progresses but then a murder happens and things get interesting when it looks like Portia is the next victim.

It's not a bad read, nothing stand-out but fun. ( )

The last time that I read a Stephanie Laurens' book I swore, "Never again." But, silly me, the lure of a 99¢ Kindle book and fairly good reviews caused me to fall off the wagon.

This is a perfectly ordinary old-friends-fall-in-love tale, told at a large house party (which I usually like), with a murder mystery thrown in for fun. Simon agrees to school Portia in the ways of love -- in the name of protecting her from rogues -- so there's lots of (what Dear Abby used to call) heavy petting, progressing into lots of heavy sex. But, good grief! These myriad love scenes go on and on and on, and I had to resort to just skimming through them to find out who the murderer was, even though it was rather obvious. Just look for the most unpleasant man in the goup.

Stephanie Laurens does not believe in using one word when seven or eight will do. Most distracting, though, she eschews the use of subjects in her sentences. Just skips them, leaves them out, annoys the reader, sometimes confuses the reader. Tops it off with a sentence fragment.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first Cynster novel, [b:Devil's Bride|363499|Devil's Bride (Cynster, #1)|Stephanie Laurens|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1348213744s/363499.jpg|2524956]. Every one since then was just dreadful. Now I really, really mean it: no more Stephanie Laurens. ( )
