Mine Till Midnight

Mine Till Midnight by Lisa Kleypas

 While searching through book trailers I found a historical romance by an author I recognized and decided to see what she could do with modern technology. I’ve found a lot of the historical romance book trailers a bit lacking, but she did a great job.

Review:

This is Book One of a five book series. It starts with the oldest daughter and her love interest.

When an unexpected inheritance elevates her family to the ranks of the aristocracy, Amelia Hathaway discovers that tending to her younger sisters and wayward brother was easy compared to navigating the intricacies of the ton. Even more challenging: the attraction she feels for the tall, dark, and dangerously handsome Cam Rohan.

Wealthy beyond most men’s dreams, Cam has tired of society’s petty restrictions and longs to return to his “uncivilized” Gypsy roots. When the delectable Amelia appeals to him for help, he intends to offer only friendship—but intentions are no match for the desire that blindsides them both. But can a man who spurns tradition be tempted into that most time-honored arrangement: marriage? Life in London society is about to get a whole lot hotter….

 

My Thoughts:

Amelia Hathaway – Unmarried at age 26 she is a spinster whose primary mission in life is to hold her family together. Her lively family consists of 3 sisters, an older brother and a Roma the family adopted years before. A broken promise of love from her past leaves her with no faith in men.

Cam Rohan – Manager of a gaming club and half gypsy, bored with women and finds little satisfaction in life. He is surprised when he finds himself intrigued by a prim and proper gadjo, a white woman. A possessive man, with the patience of a saint to put up with all Amelia’s shenanigans.

This story brought back characters from Kleypas’ Wallflower series, which I greatly loved and mixed in the quaint, quirky Hathaway Family. Full of humor, a bit of mysticism and love. The love scenes are just the right amount of hot and sexy. A supernatural twist that though not surprising was heartbreaking in its intensity. I also enjoyed the opportunity given by the author to get to know the other members of the family through their character development.

Love – The love of a sister for the family she wishes to protect and the love of a woman for a man she shouldn’t desire. A forbidden kiss on the streets outside a brothel changed both their lives forever.

Amelia is a wonderfully stubborn woman, afraid of losing herself to a man’s domineering ways. She finds herself struggling between her feelings for a man she once loved and the man whose arms she found comfort in.

Together – A man who believed that fate guided everything, and a woman who could find no logic in either fate or luck. For the sake of both their happiness Cam must convince her to take a leap of faith.

Honestly I loved this book. It contained two of my favorite things, historical romance and erotic tension. An enjoyable read from start to finish with a supernatural twist thrown in for good measure. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. A hot read with lots a sex appeal.

Since all the books are reasonably priced I obtained the collection and am presently reading Book 4 in the series.

5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)
