Guest Author & Giveaway: Alexandra Hawkins featuring All Night with a Rogue

Friday, February 5

***This giveaway has ended, but you should still read the's worth your time:)
Thanks for joining the fun!***

It didn't take more than the title of the series, Lords of Vice, for me to be intrigued by Alexandra Hawkins debut novel, ALL NIGHT WITH A ROGUE.  Then when I heard the hero's nickname is "Sin" (short for Sinclair), read the blurb, and saw the book trailer, I was sold on the story.  Which is why I can't wait to introduce you to Alexandra and her historical romance, ALL NIGHT WITH A ROGUE.  Enjoy!

Notorious, decadent, and outrageously handsome . . .

For me, those words epitomize the Regency rake.  I sighed over these historical bad boys when I was seventeen, and more than a thousand books later, my appreciation for them hasn’t wavered.  Needless to say, I was thrilled when St. Martin’s Press offered me a chance to bring my own heroes to life.

What does it take to breathe life into a series?  Answer:  An amazing amount of planning and writing.  After I had decided that I wanted seven potential heroes for my Lords of Vice series, I spent months picking out names, hunting for potential images that I could use as templates, and assembling character profiles.  Since I was going with a vice theme, I made a list of possible vices (nothing too unsavory) and matched them to each rake.  Then I moved onto the heroines and repeated my painstaking process.

Even after all of this work, I was far from finished.  Next, I outlined the individual stories.  By now, I had spent enough time working on the backstories for each character that I had a general overview plotted for each book.

For All Night With a Rogue, I had settled on Sin to kick off the series.  Of the seven, he seemed the most restless.  As he half-heartedly tried to seduce his host’s wife in the moonlit gardens, he sensed that something was about to change in his jade life.

A tiny, white ostrich plume confirmed his suspicions.

I did not originally open the book with that scene.  When I wrote the sample chapter for my publisher, I began with the lady who had inspired me from the start.  No, surprisingly, it wasn’t the heroine.  It was Sin’s sister, Belle.  As I was working up Sin’s family history, she emerged as an influential person in his life.  I could almost hear her voice in my head as I typed the words, “I demand a favor . . .”

What sort of favor would a sister demand of her brother? I pondered.  This woman was no saint.  Her sexual conquests rivaled her brother’s.  What wicked machinations were brewing behind her comely face?

From those questions, a story emerged.  It’s one of three, and I hope to write more.  If you would like to read more about Sin and the lady who tames this unrepentant rake, I hope you will check out the first book in the Lords of Vice series, All Night With a Rogue!

Happy Reading!

Notorious, handsome, and decadent, the Lords of Vice prowl the glittering ballrooms of Regency London breaking rules and hearts with equal aplomb. But even the wildest rogue must eventually meet his match.


Seduce Lady Juliana Ivers and then cast her aside: Those are his sister’s instructions. Alexius Braverton, Marquess of Sinclair--known as Sin to the ton--is happy enough to oblige, especially when he catches a glimpse of his target. Juliana is completely unlike the empty-headed chits who barely hold his attention for a week. A true gentleman would leave her to find a worthy suitor. But then, a Lord of Vice would never claim to be a gentleman.


Juliana is expected to marry well to improve her family’s finances, even if she secretly longs to make a living through her musical compositions. A dalliance can only complicate matters, though not even practical Juliana can help succumbing to the aptly named Sin. But one unforgettable night will draw her into a scandalous affair and a seduction begun as sport will soon become deliciously, dangerously real.

Congratulations Alexandra!  I really enjoyed ALL NIGHT WITH A ROGUE.  I was excited to find out that Ms. Hawkins has a three book contract because I can't wait to read more about the Lords of Vice.  The second book in the series titled, TILL DAWN WITH THE DEVIL, is due to be released August 2010.  Just in time for a great summer read.

I know I will be eagerly anticipating the second book, as well as the third novel in the series,  AFTER DARK WITH A SCOUNDREL. The only problem is that one of my favorite secondary characters  in ALL NIGHT WITH A ROGUE won't be written until at least book #4 (as long as sales are good enough for the first three for publisher to contract more in this series).  So my friends I am hoping and praying that you enjoy ALL NIGHT WITH A ROGUE as much, if not more than I did, and you encourage all of your romance reader friends to buy it so that I can eventually get to read "Frost's" story.  I'll beg if I have to.  So don't mind me if you see me at the bookstore trying to gently coax anyone located in the general vicinity of the romance aisle into buying it :)

I've been riding an emotional high this week. I can't believe ANWAR is finally in stores!

I don't know what a Google Friend Connect (GFC) follower is so I guess I'm not entered in your contest.

I don't generally pick up a historical novel to read but your title sure is an eyecatcher.

I live in GA also. I'm so tired of all this rain. By July or August I know we'll be wishing for some but right now I'm thankful I live at the top of a hill. So much water is standing on the roads and in low lying areas.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
