Descripción del producto

A woman compelled. A man obsessed. A love that defies king and country.

In the glittering world of Regency England, Anne Wilder plays a dangerous game. A widowed lady by day, by night she becomes a masked thief preying on society's elite. She roves high above London's black rooftops, compelled by phantoms from her past to take ever greater risks. Until her restless spirit leads her into Colonel Jack Seward's trap...where seduction may be her only way out.

She plays him for a fool, taking advantage of his hungry response to escape from his clutches. But as Jack hunts for the thief, his heart falls captive to a self-possessed widow. Torn between illicit passion and tender love, Jack is duty-bound to capture the audacious criminal, even if it means ripping society apart to do so. Now, he stalks her through the town, never realizing the lovely widow who captured his heart is the same woman who roused his most violent passions.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Intriguing mystery + dripping romance 1 de junio de 2014
Por Papa Frank - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
I was "hooked" when I read the "sample" because the combination of mystery thief in the night and a London setting in another era sounded great to me. There's something about detective/crime stories in faraway times and places, where technology will have no impact on the success or failure of the outcome that appeals to me; in fact, it appeals to me so much that I set aside my typical avoidance of "romance" novels, hoping that I might change my opinion about that genre.

Well, the elements of the novel that made me curious were very satisfying. Someone in high society London seems to be using social connections as opportunities to identify people who might make entering their homes and robbing them worth the effort and the risk. Things seem to be going very well for our thief until an "operative" enters the picture, whose primary mission when first introduced is finding this notorius thief, not to recover stolen jewels, but to recover a mysterious letter that could "cause irreparable harm" if released. Since this story takes place in the days of kings and queens, the reader easily infers that the "harm" could impact the throne.

Connie Brockway provides a convincing sequence of events, gradually revealing more about the society of that time and the various characters who inhabit her pages, while at the same time keeping the contents and source of that mysterious letter intriguingly vague. For much of the story, she is focused on providing insight into what makes each of the characters "tick," and they are a very interesting group, indeed. In addition to what's going on in the present, Brockway also provides bits and pieces of their past lives and relationships via carefully inserted flashbacks in a varity of forms: conversations between characters (major and minor), thoughts of characters (primarily major), and observations of others. After all, what would "high society" be without a little gossip here and there!

The overall story is also very effectively framed with an opening reference to a man who was unjustly convicted to hang for a "crime of treason" because he was (literally) "in the wrong place at the wrong time"; Brockway brings the story full circle toward the end when the man's mother is introduced as she seeks justice for her wrongfully hanged son. Conveniently, the detective currently assigned to find the thief who reportedly stole that potentially harmful letter was also present when the man was hanged. It's only natural to wonder what connections might exist here.

This would have been an "I like" (4 stars) mystery for me without torrid sexual arousal and attraction between two major characters. Brockway's description of their physical encounters is very explicit, in some respects seeming to border on the extreme as an element in a crime mystery. One aspect of their "romance" that felt more down to earth was the tension of insecurity between the two of them. Both characters had been manipulated by others in their respective pasts, making it easier for each to assume that things might not work between them than to imagine how things might turn out well.

There are many "mysteries" revealed during the course of the story that keep it very interesting, even when the "heat" seems to be turned up to an artifical level; otherwise, I wouldn't have finished.

I'm still skeptical about "romance" novels, but the other elements of Brockway's story made this a good read nonetheless.

If you're a fan of romance novels and mysteries, you might really like this one!

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas and her inability to love him as he deserved 18 de marzo de 2015
Por Christine Lloyd - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
Connie Brockway's novel <i>All Through the Night</i> is a story about a widow (Anne) who steals to assuage her guilt over her husband's death (and well the men that died with him). She steals jewelry from rich ladies who pledge to contribute to her charity for injured and homeless soliders but fail to follow through. Apparently, her husband (Matthew) committed suicide by War. Basically he contrived to get someone to give him a Captain's commission based on a scant amount of naval experience. Then wandered off into battle resulting his own death and his entire crew. Prior to his death - he sent his wife a note telling her that she would be free of him now, and her inability to love him as he deserved. The War was the Napoleanic War. But this is a Regency Romance. So it takes place after that WAR. The hero (Col. Jack Seward), who is tracking the thief, is a spy and a bit of a hardened rogue. He's being manipulated by his father (Jamison) who is the head of some covert agency and sends Jack out to do all sorts of underhanded things. Jack and Anne fall in love, much angst ensues.

The blurb on the cover led me to believe it would be a cat and mouse game - it's not. <cut text="spoilers"> Lacks humor, which is odd, considering the last novel I'd read by Brockway (The Other Guy's Bride) was actually fairly humorous. This one is a wee bit too melodramatic for its own good. And Brockway over sells Anne's backstory. Anne was married to a Narcissist, who everyone else considered a saint, and it led her to become a cat burgler or jewel thief.

Jack is more interesting. The heroes often are in these novels, not quite sure why. Without going into too much detail, Jack was raised in a work house and then adopted by Jamison, who turned him into a spy. The novel does provide some rather complex, if unlikable, supporting characters. And Jamison, who is clearly a sociopath, is far more complex than you'd think from the brief description. But the plot suffers from the writer's struggle to create hot love scenes, which is admittedly a genre related flaw. Sex scenes are not easy to write - literary writers struggle with them. There's a fine line between erotic and just plain ludicrous. The old adage less is more rings true here.

All Through the Night is however interesting in how it depicts the struggle for gender equality in this time period. How women are often suppressed by men. The hero (Jack) at one point in the story, actually thinks to himself - how he is the heroine's "superior in gender, physical strength and rank". This is admittedly before the heroine in the guise of a thief, steals into his room, ties him up, and has her way with him sexually, while holding him at swordpoint, then physically bests him and escapes. It's also stated at various points, how she has a lot more money than he does. But the heroine is called "MRS Wilder" not Anne. MRS stands out, because the other women are Miss or Lady. And in most of these novels you see the word Lady. I've come to the conclusion that the word "MRS" has got to be the most sexist of terms. The woman is no longer an individual - she takes on her spouses' identity and name. Unlike MR - which does not have a marital connotation or one of ownership, MRS does. This book really underlines it - and does it in a rather subversive manner.

Brockway is a somewhat subversive romance novelist in that she likes to critique various tropes. In this novel - Anne Tribble marries Lord Matthew Wilder, who showers her with riches, adores her, but doesn't want her to have kids or is into sexual love - which he considers lust and beneath them. He can love her, but she can't sexually love him. He wants her to let him take her over, become his. Not just take his name, but everything else as well. He's a fairy tale prince who appears, at least on the surface, to hand poor Anne, from less than classy roots, the world. But she grows to hate his insecure and fawning attentions and despise herself for feeling this way. Until she decides to leave him and live with her father. Unable to handle her abandonment, he enlists and kills himself and his men - to punish her. Resulting in Anne martyring herself to a cause and robbing rich ladies as a thief, that everyone but the hero, believes is male - the hero knows she isn't because she propositions him. As the thief she takes on the aggressive and proactive male role. She has the power. Until the rough around the edges, and Colonel of modest means, Jack Seward swoops in and rescues her taking her away from that life. She becomes his Mrs. Seward. And when all is resolved, which of course it will be, Jack and Anne disappear together within the fog. Normally, in these books, Seward is the fiend and Matthew the hero, but here it is the opposite. We never meet Matthew - he's dead before the book begins. </cut>

The story works and it doesn't quite work. In that the writer takes the story a wee bit too seriously, and the characters feel at times over-drawn or over-wrought. Far too much time is spent on erotic sex scenes - which could have been shortened, and repetitive monologues about how much the two characters desire each other and can't live without one another - which unfortunately comes across more as "obsession" than love. And does little to counteract against the Matthew/Anne back story. The dialogue also lacks a certain snap, crackle and pop.

Overall not a bad read, but can't say I recommend it either.
4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Anna and Jack 15 de marzo de 2017
Por Candace Peterson - Publicado en Amazon.com

Jack is the Whitehall Hound, a renowned spy. Anna is a widow and a infamous thief. Jack is set on the thief's trail when the burglaries are committed against the Prince Regent's friends. Anna is the widow by day and the thief at night. Jack is attracted to both the widow and the thief and is confused why. When Jack uncovers the truth, what links will he go to to save Anna from his enemy? Can he trust her enough to love her?

This novel is an easy read. It does contain steamy love scenes. The main characters are fleshed out and feel real. The dialogue plays a key role in the story. It demonstrates the emotional depth of the characters. The plot and subplots are neatly wrapped up. I give this novel 3.5 stars.

Thank Goodness! A wonderful book to read. I have been reading some good books recently, but none "to write home about". This is the exception! Great characters, great writing, great plot.
I liked the way the author gave us these flawed characters, hooked us, and redeemed them.
Lots of, "ooh, wow" moments.
5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A+: For craft and characterization 8 de junio de 2016

This was a superbly written novel. The plot was well organized. The characters were well developed. This book was cleverly constructed and crafted in such a manner that what is put together is phenomenal. I was so riveted I ended up spending all my free time reading this until I was done. A truly original and superbly crafted plot, exquisitely defined characters, and such a cleverly organized scheme are hard to find in this genre. The writing is reminiscent of Lindsay Sands or Kleypas with a dash of Cole or Showalter. This writer is not only a literary genius, but is obviously well educated and knows the finer points of plot--these things are hard to come by in a romance novel.
This represents the best of the genre.
