On a Wild Night Paperback
Part of the Bar Cynster series
Where are all the exciting men in London? After spending years in the glittering ballrooms of the town, Amanda Cynster is utterly bored by the current crop of bland suitors.
Determined to take matters into her own hands, one night she shockingly goes where no respectable lady ever should, but where many an intriguing gentleman might be found.
But titillating excitement quickly turns to panic when Amanda discovers she's quite out of her depth.
She looks around for help - and is unexpectedly rescued by the Earl of Dexter.
Lean, sensuous, and mysterious, he has delayed re-entering society, preferring instead a more interesting existence on its fringes. He's the epitome of the boldly passionate gentleman Amanda has been searching for, but although his very touch makes it clear he's willing to educate her in the art of love, Amanda has to wonder if such a masterful rake can be sufficiently tamed into the ways of marriage.

Review by wyvernfriend
This story is part of the Cynster series, this time one of the Cynster Females. Amanda is 23, pretty much on the shelf but she wants someone like her cousins as a love, however that isn't easy to find. She decides that she's going to find love in unusual places and delves into the underbelly of the Beau Monde, visiting those places considered a bit risky.Yes, there are sections of the book and the plot that are great fun, but there are also chunks thata just made me want to beg the writer why? I liked Martin, Lord Dexter, he was a great fun character, but really there were times that his angst made me think he was 15!There's a good book lurking under the overwriting. Much of the plot is interesting but some of it felt like filler. Rather like many films that could be half-an-hour shorter this book could have shed 100-200 pages and been a tighter read.
