Mine Till Midnight by Lisa Kleypas

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….

Ahhh.....I really enjoyed this one. I liked Amelia and Cam and thought they did well with each other. I read some other reviews that complained about the number of characters in here that seemed like sequel bait, but I honestly liked it all. I suppose I just like family romances as I really liked the scenes with Amelia and her family. The romance here is also great, at least it was to me. Now, there's no way Cam can avoid being attached to people as Amelia comes with quite the family. It'll be good for him.

I also liked some of the mysteries that were started here and also, I supppose, started in previous books, such as Cam's tattoo of a Pooka and what it will mean. And Merripen was quite the interesting character and I loved his scenes with Win. Honestly, I liked reading about all the characters. And the scenes with some of the Wallflowers coming in was great, too.

All in all, a great romance from Lisa Kleypas once again.

That's what I'm looking forward to finding out in the next one - how are Cam and Merripen related and what is the mystery behind the tatoos!
It is a good book isn't it? It seems like a while since we've both read the same one around the same time :)

I just loved it. can't wait for the next one.

Yeah, it's been awhile. I've been all over the board with the books I've been reading lately, not just romance.

Love your blog, Nicole!

And I love Kleypas! "Midnight" is next on my list after I finish a romance by a new author, Rob Costelloe.

I like mixing it up between new authors and my old faves.

BTW, hope you're feeling better!
