I remember a Keyboard magazine article saying there's a lot of Roland Super Jupiter on that album. The arpeggiator pattern certainly sounds like one of the ones found on the Jupiter 6 or 8. It could even be a Jupiter 4. It definitely has the sound quality of one of the Jupiters as well. To make the sparkly arps on a Juno 60 I do them a lot on my JP8 which sounds almost exactly the same for this patch For chiminess, crank the resonance all the way up, as well as key tracking maxed.
This will add a sine wave oscillator to the top of your sound. Tune it with the filter cutoff slider and also the S in the envelope. Once you dial in a pleasing chime with the snappy envelope and long release The MemoryMoog bagpipe type solo would need an envelope with slow attack for pitch on one osc, while the other two stay on pitch but heavily detuned.
The characters were great. I liked Jack's lust and love for Anne from the beginning. I liked Anne's intelligence and thieving skills and her ability to figure out who had the missing letter. I liked some of the plot twists. I liked the scene describing how Jamison first met and took Jack as his son from a workhouse.
What I did not like: The ending was unfinished. I wanted to know where they would go and how they would live.
I wanted OK but I wouldn't recommend it. I wanted to know what would happen to the money and property Anne inherited from her previous husband. I didn't understand what Anne was trying to do when she visited Jack at night in his room and tied him up. The writing style was too drawn out with some conversations either boring or too long.
Sexual language: moderate. Number of sex scenes: four.
Setting: London. Copyright: Genre: regency romance. Jun 13, Erin Burns rated it really liked it Shelves: openlibrary. I was expecting a romp, and this wasn't. I was all set to give this thing 2. There's politics, intrigue, murder, and thievery. And oddly enough the ending felt very Scarlet Pimpernel to me, which is for me very high praise and gets this book 4 stars from me, despite the relatively slow middle.
Jan 12, Diane K. Peterson rated it really liked it Shelves: ebooks , historical-romance , audiobooks. This is another hard book to review. I liked many things about it very much. It had a compelling and intriguing plot. The hero and heroine were both complex characters with deep-seated issues. There was a complex overriding plot with lots of political intrigue. My only problem was that everything felt a bit over the top. The problems were too complicated.
The villains were too evil. The skills of the hero and heroine were too perfect. I just didn't find it all thoroughly believable.
I liked it, This is another hard book to review. I liked it, but I didn't believe it. Therein is the difficulty in coming to a conclusion. I highly recommend that readers try it and decide for themselves. Jan 03, Cindy Castillo rated it really liked it. I very much enjoyed reading "All Through the Night", and I found the plot to be interesting. You could feel the chemistry between the two characters, and the intimate scenes were very hot. I thought this was a nice change from how historical romances usually just have the rogue be the criminal. Jack and the relationship with his father was intriguing and I liked learning about his past.
Anne was a fun heroine who knew how to be adventurous. I found the cat and mouse game to be hilarious, fun, an I very much enjoyed reading "All Through the Night", and I found the plot to be interesting. I found the cat and mouse game to be hilarious, fun, and sexy.
I'm adding this book to my bookshelf and I'm interested to read some other novels by this author as well. Mar 31, Carrie rated it really liked it Shelves: spy-secret-agent , ptsd , historical , suspense , read I'm taking off a star because on the whole the book is depressingly dark, filled with angst, stress, and unhappy people playing roles. The reader is only privy to the briefest time of peace for the main characters at the end of the book. So while I applaud the writing and the mesmerizing story, this book wasn't so much entertaining for me as it was exhausting.
May 20, Joy rated it it was ok Shelves: american , 20c , historical-fiction , romance. I am pretty sure that I read this a few years ago when I first investigated genre romances, but as I failed to record that date read, I am going to put it down as a book. This is one of those books that most of my friends love, but it left me cold. I loved the idea of it--lady thief! Possibly this is why it didn't make an impression on me the first time around in ish.
Then chapter 2 came and then there were too many secondary characters, unnecessary back stories, and it went on pages too long. I do like the h and H though. Brooding spy and a kickass thief which appeared in only two scenes, unfortunately. Such a pity. Dec 01, Katie babs rated it it was amazing.
Best naughty sex scene in a library ever! One of my all time favorite historical romance. There's angst, brooding sexy hero, angst, sexual desire and more angst. Full of awesomesauce. Jul 12, Jules rated it it was ok. I'm sorry, I just can't get behind a book where the heroine is described as a dark gargoyle - yet somehow beautiful??!!
Overall, I saw what the author was attempting to do. Trying to capture this epic cat vs mouse game-thief versus master spy, but it just came up flat for me. Too overwrought and cursed with a plot driver that turns out to be completely ridiculous and contrived. Also, Personally, I don't like stories where the hero has no dominion over himself.
Where he is destitute and controlled I'm sorry, I just can't get behind a book where the heroine is described as a dark gargoyle - yet somehow beautiful??!! Where he is destitute and controlled by the wishes of others, which is what we have here - in the extreme.
Action in the North Atlantic This is a fast-paced, funny film made shortly before Pearl Harbor. 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. The story is about battling wills, the human relationship with pain, guilt, and skulking around in the dark. Password must be at least 8 characters, including uppercase, lowercase, and a number.

Most aggravating was the ending and epilogue which were both epic fails in my opinion. The antithesis of what an ending should be in a romance novel.

Giggles gave this one such a glowing review I had to read it. I ended up buying it from Amazon because it was never at the library and the ebook slowed my computer. Gotta say it was money well spent. We leap back into the realm of Connie Brockway's regency London, where a thief's been terrorizing rich families. Colonel Jack Seward encounters said thief one night, discovers she's a lady, makes out with her Sometime later he meets lovely Mrs.
Sometime later he meets lovely widow Anne Wilder at a gathering and is taken by her. Anne Wilder is fucked up but in kind of a badass way. She was a nobody amusing note, her maiden name was TRIBBLE with loving parents, she married a rich guy she thought she loved but his love for her was so stifling, so obsessive that it drove her nuts and when her husband realized she didn't love him with the same intensity he got himself killed.
So Anne steals from rich people to fund a home for his soldiers, who were hurt in the battle that killed her husband. Dad was a thief, so she pretty much does it as he did. She knows it's dangerous but this lady lives life on the edge. Love and stability? She craves danger and angry sex. Anne, who's managed to keep her cool for most of the story, starts to lose her shit when she realizes she's fucked, people are gonna want her dead.
So Jack marries her, they keep up their dance and finally they open up to each other. When they finally do have sex Anne's reactions range from pleasure to panic, it's what she wanted but Jack is tormenting her with questions and answering them could ruin her image. Jack's the one with the really screwed-up past. His adoptive dad basically used him to do terrible things and when we meet him we can see what a monster he is. Not as rage-inducing as other romance novel villains, just Jack and Anne complete each other in a strange way and it really works.
I love the dynamic between them even when things get rough and messy and angry. At one point Anne, as the thief, sneaks into his room and attacks him, makes out with him, fondles him and runs off. The secondary characters have their own stories, as is typical for a Connie Brockway novel. Anne's charge Sophia North struggles to break away from her controlling father by making a spectacle of herself among society, ending up with her pregnant and marrying one of the possible fathers, who's in love with Anne. Lady Dibbs hates Anne for knowing she renged on her donations to the home for wounded soldiers.
Griffin is Jack's ever-devoted servant. He loved Anne, he worshipped her but he was so forceful about it, like he thought throwing himself upon her mercy and holding up Love as some sort of golden paragon would magically make her see it the same way and when she didn't, he guilt-tripped her and basically committed suicide over it. Jack reasons that Matthew didn't love Anne, just wanted to own her In the end, Jack and Anne disappear from the London scene. I hesitate to call it a bittersweet ending because Anne's probably happy enough to leave behind the society she wasn't too fond of.
I know the next book in this series probably discusses what happened with them but for now I just want to imagine Anne and Jack living on the move with their gray cat and enjoying life the way they were meant to, not held back or tied down by expectations. My one beef with this story was that at times it could move a little slowly and didn't always suck me in. Perfect or not, it definitely earned that "keeper" status on Mrs. Giggles's page.
Mar 23, Sheila Majczan rated it it was amazing. This is the second in a series, and having read the third book first I had to go back and read about the other male characters and their stories - in service to the crown as spies, assassins or as whatever is needed and the ladies who capture their attentions. Anne Wilder, companion to her dead husband's cousin, leads a double life. And part of her past is that her fathe This is the second in a series, and having read the third book first I had to go back and read about the other male characters and their stories - in service to the crown as spies, assassins or as whatever is needed and the ladies who capture their attentions.
And part of her past is that her father, having led a secret life as a master thief prior to his retirement, his taking up a title of merchant and his blackmailing his way to a knighthood, taught his daughter all the tricks of the trade of thievery. One wonders how Anne kept in shape as her daytime activities as chaperon are very sedate while on some nights she leaps from roof to roof or scales walls. All this in pursuit of Robin Hood type activities when members of the Ton promise but do NOT deliver on donations to her charity.
Her soldiers' and sailors' home is a response to her dead husband's causing the downing of a ship full of sailors in his ineptitude in a "grand gesture" of suicide due to Anne's not loving him as deeply as he loves her or so he claims! The story begins with the hanging of a maimed service man that has been denied a pension. Linked to this event is a letter Also at the forefront, our lady thief is foiled by our hero, Jack, Hound of Whitehall, a.
Henry Seward. Jack's history is complex and one the telling of which shifts with who is relating such. He was pulled from a workhouse, but is he the bastard son of Jamison, or just the trained emotionless spy and assassin of this same man? Intense sexual tension sparks between Jack and Anne. Jack, not knowing that the lady thief he is seeking among the Ton is also the widow, Ann Wilder, who shows up in the Regent Prince's circle only because of her relationship to Sophia North, a young and beautiful debutante, is torn as never before.
Anne has had a very successful season in the past and won the heart of one at the top of society's circles. But in knowing who and what Jack is, can she pack away that dark side of her which sends her over roofs or will he look into her eyes or hear in her voice the Lady Thief he kissed and caressed in that foiled robbery attempt? They all have a role in developing this delightful tale and those roles are not always for the betterment of ODC. The ending leaves us wondering what the future held for this couple but, like their lives, some things are just meant to be secret.
I read this tale in one day as I did the second one - so it is not a ponderous tome but a delightful interlude. What did I just read? The setup is fairly easy to comprehend. Jack Seward is a spy on a tight leash seeking a thief, and Anne Wilder is that thief. She uses her feminine wiles a phrase that always makes me laugh to ease her escape, and he becomes obsessed with her. They each have abundantly tragic pasts, and the villain is repellent, though not immediately obvious. Anne in particular has a darker past than I realised at first. She thought she had this perfect husband whose love made That She thought she had this perfect husband whose love made her the envy of all.
I liked Strand more, since his personality was less prone to change with the direction of the freaking WIND. And his pining unrequited love for Anne was sweet. I was actually really annoyed to think that he view spoiler [ends up with Sophia. She's the most horrible brat, I actually thought she was going to turn out to be a villain.
She struck me as menacing. Things take a really bizarre turn in the second half or so. Ostensibly in order to protect Anne, Jack view spoiler [marries her absolutely out of the blue. Their romance was fine, but between Strand's seemingly inevitable misery and Jack's jealous boyfriend Griffin, I found myself wondering how much I'd rather see a little bit of pair shuffling. But then I don't think I've actually read a single romance that shuffled pairs ever.
Late in the book seems like it would be even less likely. He isn't actually supposed to be enamoured with Seward, but he does do that crazy bro loyalty thing where he hates Anne with a passion because he thinks she's bad for his friend. He even vents his hatred to her face and tells her to piss off. But its contents may not be as satisfying to some people, unless you keep in mind that the contents, while important, are not what the villain is swinging around as a weapon most of the time.
The story is about battling wills, the human relationship with pain, guilt, and skulking around in the dark. But it was just presented as a little too much like crazysauce for me to fully enjoy.

I think the main problem was the original idea was short, sweet, and simple, but when it ran out of steam to fill a whole novel, Brockway shoved a bunch of random plot in to give it more heft. The plot, characters, and their motivations aren't detailed, thought out, or sensible enough. Things just happen, and you accept them to keep the story going, much like you'd go with the latest James Bond movie. Home Page. All through the night. Choral All through the Night.
