Lisa Kleypas...

Is back! Well, that's just my opinion...

I really didn't care for her contemporary novel, Sugar Daddy, but her latest book, Mine Till Midnight takes us back to the mid 1800's, one of my favorite time periods.

Here's the blurb:

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….

I'm so glad that Kleypas hasn't stopped writing her historical novels. I would miss them...She has a wonderful voice. The characters are wonderfully written.

In this book we get the chance to get to know Cam Rohan a little better, the character was first introduced in Devil In Winter. He a "uncivilized" Gypsy, living and working in London, but he missing living outdoors and the space and the freedom of his Gypsy roots. But then he meets Amellia Hathaway and he then starts questioning his decision.

Both Cam and Amelia are great characters, but I have to say that Win and Merripen were the scene stealer, and I'm looking forward to reading their book...if there will be one, keeping my fingers crossed.

Rate: 4/5, Keeper Shelf
