A woman of modest means meets a society man skilled in the art of seduction in this captivating new novel from New York Times bestselling author

LISA KLEYPAS

"A truly talented storyteller."--Publishers Weekly

 

THEIR LIVES DEFY COVENTION.

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.

 

THEIR DESIRE CONSUMES THEM BOTH...

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....

 

MINE TILL MIDNIGHT

Review:

"Historical romance master Kleypas reintroduces Cam Rohan, the wealthy half-Gypsy first seen in 2006's Devil in Winter, in her latest page-turning Victorian. Rohan, manager of a London gentleman's club, decides to do a favor for the distraught Amelia Hathaway, who is scouring brothels in search of her wastrel brother, Leo. Rohan, weary of his usual diet of beautiful-but-boring lovers, is bemused by and attracted to Amelia, a staid and proper spinster, and so he sets about making a presence of himself at the ramshackle Hathaway estate, sowing sexual tension as he does. As the standoffish relationship between Rohan and Amelia evolves into romance, the reappearance of Amelia's former suitor throws an intriguing wrench in the works. The author's sensitivity to the prejudice endured by the Roma (Gypsies) adds a measure of grim reality that is creatively offset by Rohan's discussion of Roma beliefs and superstitions. Kleypas's effortless style makes for another sexy exploration of 19th-century passion and peccadilloes, riveting from start to finish." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

The hero is very possessive, only wants the heroine, is gorgeous, filthy rich, and does not even want to look at another woman. I loved how the hero had never been in love before and said the sweetest things to the heroine. I loved the Hathaway sisters and brothers (especially Merripen) and they added a great touch of humor to the book. Overall, a light read for when you want to read a romance with a happy ending.

Mine Till Midnight by Lisa Kleypas is the start of a new series that involves the delightfully unpolished Hathaway family. The Hathaway's were content to live in relative obscurity in the country until Leo inherited a title which brought the family to the attention of the aristocracy. Now Leo's sister's all have opportunities that they never thought possible before. Although what each sister will do with these new advantages will shock most members of the ton. Take for example, Amelia Hathaway, she is the oldest and has taken it upon herself to act as a mother to her younger siblings and to do her best to make even the most unconventional of them presentable. Which is a very daunting task to say the least.

But then she meets Cam Rohan, a gypsy, who gives new meaning to the phrase tall, dark and dangerous. Amelia meets Cam when trying to track down her wayward brother and the sparks that fly between them are immediately felt on both sides. Mine Till Midnight was such a fun read. I loved loved loved meeting the Hathaway family and adored all of their many quirks. Especially that scene with Beatrice, the youngest Hathaway, at Lord Westcliff's dinner....well....lets just say that it had me laughing out loud and leave it at that.

Amelia is a strong character and despite an initial desire to be conventional she soon realizes that just isn't the Hathaway way. I really enjoyed reading her story and all the ups and downs of her relationship with Cam, who is totally swoon worthy by the way. My one problem with this story was how even after Amelia and Cam married (and that's not a spoiler people this IS a romance book after all and they tend to end in one of two ways.) Anywho - after Amelia and Cam married the rest of the Hathaway family still referred to him as Mr Rohan. Which I can see before the marriage - but afterwards when he becomes part of their family? I don't know, perhaps I am just not very well versed in Victorian etiquette rules....but even if that is the norm, it just doesn't seem very Hathaway-like.

All in all though this was a very fun read and is my favorite Lisa Kleypas to date. Can't wait to see what shenanigans the rest of this boisterously, unconventional clan gets up to!

Overall, a very fun read, but a few loose ends. I suppose the matter of the matching tattos that remained unresolved is a teaser for the next book, sister Win's story. But as I read this book, I expected something to come of Cam's Irish father, but was also left hanging on that score. Great romance, as always, but Cam and Amelia's relationship doesn't seem to be based upon much beyond lust. Make no mistake, the relationship is HOT, and I very much enjoyed the ride, but I ended up feeling like it really wasn't based on much. If you missed reading Tino Georgiou's masterful novel--The Fates, I'd highly recommend reading it. Truly an enjoyable read.
