All Through The Night by Connie Brockway (1997)

HISTORICAL: European Historical Romance
SETTING: England 1817
HEROINE: 25 year old widow and thief

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

She'd played him for a fool, taking advantage of his hungry response to escape from his clutches. But as Jack hunted for his thief, his heart fell 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 stalked her through the ton, never realizing the lovely widow who captured his heart was the same woman who roused his most violent passions. A love that defied king and country.

Mr Giggles reviews All Through The Night by Connie Brockway

Do I doubt that Jack and Anne are good for each other? No. Here is where the author demonstrates her exquisite skill: All Through The Night is dark and full of emotional torment, but the darkness never overwhelms me. Instead, the darkness becomes the story, blending it so perfectly with Jack and Anne's character that their torments never come off as forced. These are people I wouldn't want to meet in real life, but I end up caring for them. I hurt, I cry, and I really weep for them at the end. (read more)

The Romance Reader reviews All Through The Night by Connie Brockway

Both main characters have troubled pasts -- which can make for heavy reading. This isn't a book for everyone. But for readers who like a compelling story with complex, fascinating characters and sexual tension that will have you breathing deeply, All Through the Night is definitely a must read.

And what a moving read! The cat and mouse of the hunt, together with these two magnetic, mature characters whose troubled pasts are revealed in tantalizing glimpses, combine to draw the reader deep into a world of mystery, intrigue, and raging passion. For those with a taste for originality and depth of characterization, this is a trip well worth making. (read more)

Rosario reviews All Through The Night by Connie Brockway

I loved that Brockway didn't take the easy way out and make the usual excuses for her characters' behaviour. And she added a twist: Anne tried to convince herself that she was stealing only for her charity, but it was clear this was just an excuse. And Jack's conflicting feelings about his father and what he did... they made a horrible kind of sense. (read more)
