Mine till Midnight
The Hathaways bk 1
THEIR LIVES DEFY CONVENTION
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…
REVIEW: A couple of weeks ago I got an email in it that had a short story from Lisa Kleypas. The story took place in between Seduce me at Sunrise and Tempt me at Midnight. So I read the story and was immediately hooked on the characters. Knowing what a huge fan of Lisa’s my sister in law is I asked to borrow these books. Having not read the Wallflower Series (I corrected that this week-end) I had never met Cam nor any of the other characters that were in this book from the other series.
From the moment I met Cam in this book I liked him, pretty quickly it turned into lust and then I just flat out loved him. He really does try and resist Amelia, but then he realizes that nope he will be the only one to have her, and proceeds to accomplish what he set out to do. No matter what Amelia thinks.
Amelia is a woman that has been shaped by life around her. Her parents are dead leaving her to take care of her siblings. Her brother has become a wastrel after the loss of his fiancee to Scarlet Fever, her sister Win never really recovered from the fever. To top it all of they have inherited a title and property that has no money. Every time disaster has struck since then it seems that Cam is there to see it, and to help her.
She really tries to resist him, as she has no intention of every marrying. However Cam has different ideas and will stop at nothing till has her where he wants her.
I loved this story. I loved how Cam knew what he wanted and went after it. He didn’t let Amelia’s objections stand in his way. He did everything he could to make her feel protected and safe.
Okay I could go and on about Cam, because really in my mind this was really his book, however I won’t. I will let you discover Cam all on your own. I do however recommend reading the Devil in Winter before this book so that you can see how Cam gets to where he is in this book.
I give this book a 4.75 out of 5
